As any mom would tell you, taking care of the newborn baby is physically, spiritually, and mentally exhausting. The new parents have to dedicate themselves completely to the newborn, at least for the first four or five months of its life.
Having time for self-care during this chaotic period is unthinkable, and it goes the same about having time to be fully present with your partner.
Celeste Yvonne is a blogger and a mother of two, a toddler and a newborn. This extremely exhausted mother decided to write an open letter to her husband, in which she asked him for more help with their children. Her letter has gone viral since, and it paints the very real picture of moms who get stuck doing everything.
It also gives specific ways for parents to support each other, so we invite you to read it below:
Yvonne filmed a video after the open letter went viral on Facebook, and she answered the question most of the viewers had asked her: Did the letter work?
She answered that the letter absolutely worked, as communication works most of the time.
