Meet the Mama Behind More for Mama
Hi, I’m Sam and More for Mama is my passion project.
After the birth of my first kiddo, I struggled through a period of delayed postpartum depression. I knew that something was off and that I wasn’t happy, but I had no idea why. I had a supportive, loving husband and a beautiful, healthy baby. I lived in sunny southern California, and had a cushy part-time job. What possible reason could I have to be so miserable?
Looking back, the root of my unhappiness stemmed from the simple act of self neglect.
I wasn’t taking care of myself physically, mentally, or emotionally. Eventually, things got so crappy that my marriage was in jeopardy. I knew something had to change.
I made little adjustments to start taking back my life and really make it mine again. My husband and I began seeing a marriage counselor, I started to really focus on my health, and I went back to work full time for sanity’s sake. Slowly, I started to feel like me again. My marriage was on the mend, I was finally shedding that lingering baby weight, and I felt like I had a purpose a part from being a mom.
I began to see the importance of self care in all its forms; and that changed everything.
Now, I want to share what I’ve learned with all the mamas of the world. I want you to know that you can be a good mom and have a fulfilling career. You can put your family first while still prioritizing your own wellbeing. You can run a household and do the things that inspire you. In fact, I would argue that prioritizing your wants and needs, whatever they may be, is crucial for the overall prosperity of your family. I’m a much better wife and mother when I’m feeling fulfilled and accomplished in other areas of my life.
So, are you ready to get more of what you want out of life? Let’s get to it, mama!
