Julia Jones Newborn Mothers

I’ve been following Julia for some time now and was delighted to be able to have this conversation with her on the importance of creating supportive villages to nurture newborn mothers.

What We Talked About

  • Having a holistic approach to postpartum care for new families
  • The societal changes that need to take place to support new families
  • Re-learning what has been lost when it comes to caring for new mothers
  • What it takes to have a successful breastfeeding journey
  • What exactly is ‘baby brain’

Things to Remember

“When a baby is born, so is a mother.”

“The happy healthy mom is going to be the best parent.”

“A mindset shift is necessary to really understand that it takes a village to raise a child.”

– Julia Jones

“The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children” – Jessica Lange

“There are places in the heart you don’t even know exist until you love a child.” – Anne Lamott

“There’s no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.” – Jill Churchill
