  • This was a great video exactly what I need expecting first in november. Also loved these leggings! Where are they from? Did you like them?

  • Girl, THANK YOU! As a first time mom, I am trying to read and understand postpartum care so I can try the best I can to have a positive experience, but it is SO TABOO OUT THERE! Nobody talks about HOW TO USE STUFF, WHERE TO PUT THEM, and I mean, I am sick of it! I couldn’t understand the witch hazel thing, because people say “use this for down there” in videos and I am like ‘WTH??’ JUST CALL IT LIKE IT IS! A VAGINA! I am so frustrated that I could not find ONE single video that would tell me all the TMI’s until I found you, so THANK YOU! THANK YOU for talking about the first poop, about the numbing spray and actually showing me how to do it! You rock!

  • Omg
    Now im scared!! Loved this videos why nobody talks about it making it all about the baby when mom also needs to be taken care of

  • If you’re wanting to use pads instead of adult diapers try this Gonna sound weird but hear me out. When I was in marching band at 14/15yo my mom still wouldn’t let me use tampons but the pads were ALWAYS moving and I was a heavy bleeder… double up on your underwear. Idk how it works but it does. It helps hold everything in place

  • I had my daughter 8/4 and I used the adult diapers and LOVED them. I will make sure to have them on hand if I ever have another baby. It was a game changer for me

  • Does anyone know where I could find the tucks pads other than online which arrives next week. I need the pads now I’m in pain ����

  • I loved the always descreet diapers i used them for my miscarriage cause it was so much blood they are comfortable and awesome to sleep in i at times forgot i had them on until id go to the bathroom lol

  • The always discreet are a complete game changer!!! I recommend them to ANYONE that is pregnant!! They really absorb so much more blood and other stuff lol and they definitely feel more secure and comfortable than the mesh and giant pads!!

  • So I just binged watched about every video you came out with related to things they don’t tell you �� I’m expecting my first child in August so… but you mentioned in the video about sitting in bath or the tub thing with epsom salt but in one of the other videos you say that you can’t take a bath for several days (maybe weeks) after giving birth. Is the bath/epsom salt thing for after this no bath timeframe?

  • Hey, just want to tell you that you are super sweet and super relatable when you talk. I loved how forthcoming and honest you were while giving the glimpse of how those diapers would look. I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to buy those but thanks a lot for clearing my mind. Have a happy motherhood and don’t worry even if some douchebag clicks ur photo and puts it on the net they won’t be able to derive any satisfaction out of it. All the best!!

  • I know this sounds weird but I am currently 23 weeks pregnant and was wondering…for the bottle do you use it for #2 also since you can’t wipe down there?����‍♀️
