About Whole Mom Bingo
Finding time for yourself as a mom is a challenge in and of itself, and sometimes figuring out how to use that time to fill your cup is even more of a challenge than the time commitment.
The Whole Mom Bingo was designed as a creative way for moms to engage in self-care without having to figure out what to do. See, we spend most of our time managing other people's tasks and schedules so when it comes to thinking about one more thing we typically skip taking care of ourselves.
In an effort to reduce the stress that can be associated with "finding time for me" I have created a Bingo card that makes it more fun and appealing rather than daunting. The idea is to try and get Bingo weekly, and possibly fill your card monthly to ensure you are prioritizing yourself, and you might even win a prize.
The Whole Mom
Motherhood is a powerful, challenging, and pivotal point in women's lives and one we are left unprepared for. The Whole Mom was developed to assist expecting and new moms as they transition into motherhood and beyond. Becoming a mother, while observed to be something women have been doing forever, goes far beyond conceiving, carrying, and delivering. While our bodies may be "designed" to do this innately, we have found that our minds do not adjust accordingly. We cannot flip a switch and expect our minds to adjust to a place it has never been exposed to.
I fill the gap in mental and emotional preparation that is not getting addressed in the physical appointments or discussions about your overall health. I provide insight, education, preparation, and awareness for the other crucial parts of the mom during her journey. These stages of motherhood can be terrifying and lonely, especially without the proper education, awareness, and support around the mental health components of postpartum. We cannot expect moms to effectively transition into the fourth trimester and beyond without this information.
