"This was OURS and only ours."

I was not expecting to experience motherhood so early.

I talk about this a lot because the shift I felt was huge, I had no peers who were parents yet.

Breastfeeding was my own initiation into motherhood.

I had to give my whole body over and keep giving in order to really let motherhood take over.

This was OURS and only ours. I was in total control of the one thing she needed. Food.

I felt so strong about being able to publicly breastfeed, I headed over to IG HQ to post up photos and stage a mini protest.

I don't share as much of my journey with Nova because I don't need to. I've been initiated and I am ALL mama 😝.

It's funny how we come into new phases of life, this was my way and I cherish every single photo I have to remind me of the beginning of this journey for me.
