I had postpartum depression after both of my kids. I know how it feels like, and I am eager to help other moms to enjoy their first-time motherhood journey.
Thanks, Natalie, for bringing up her dream to life and included me in the design process.

UX Researcher with a diverse background skill set, including UI/UX design, analytics, accessibility, and digital engagement. Mommy of two boys.

I was thrilled to be a part of such a great initiative. Being a mom is a hard job, being a first-time mom can be scary and overwhelming. I remember my biggest challenge was lack of support. I am happy that today we can help other moms, by bringing a solution that will serve their needs, make them better prepared during a postpartum period.
