What a whirlwind of a week it’s been! Between adjusting to this new social-distancing way of life, and getting into the swing of things as the mother of three, life certainly hasn’t been boring! LOL. I can’t believe my little boy is already a week old! I started writing his birth story last night, which I hope to have up on the blog in the coming weeks. Team HEA also has a bunch of new posts in-progress based on the feedback we received from you guys on this post so stay tuned! In the meantime, here are some of the items that have been saving my life during my first week of postpartum recovery.
