The Post Pregnancy Boujie Express is an initiative launched to uplift women on the journey of motherhood. Pregnancy is an emotional and physical journey for every woman. Post-pregnancy is one of the most critical times for a mother; a time when she can easily slip into depression and lose her self-confidence. Your body changes, your state of mind changes and most times, the woman thinks she's the only person experiencing these drastic changes in her life. The Post Pregnancy Boujie Express is all about uplifting women during and after pregnancy. It's all about the woman fully taking control of her life while learning how to balance motherhood, family-life, career and self-care.
There are many reasons as to why I launched the initiative in Accra.
First, each woman's case of post-partum woes differs but having a network in which we can openly discuss it can be of help to each other.
Secondly, overcrowding in hospitals; meaning women who have just given birth are sleeping on hospital floors with their newborns.
Thirdly, the health, education and care provided to women before, during and after pregnancy should never be compromised based on financial status.
During each event six phenomenal moms from different industries open up about motherhood as a whole. Each woman touches on a specific topic for 15 minutes. I also have professionals from various sectors providing the best advice on topics from the importance of breastfeeding, family planning to balancing motherhood and career.
