YouTube -- TEDtalks: A new way to think about the transition to motherhood | Alexandra Sacks
'When a baby is born, so is a mother – but the natural (and sometimes unsteady) process of transition to motherhood is often silenced by shame or misdiagnosed as postpartum depression.

Why Choosing Single Motherhood Still Means Breaking All The Rules
Evita Robinson, founder of Nomadness Travel Tribe, was featured in this article.

Then, she began preparing. Robinson opened a “motherhood” savings account, and researched the best countries to give birth in. She’s also leveling her blood pressure, changing her diet, losing weight, seeking dental care, and practicing yoga to strengthen her core and her pelvic floor — parts of the body integral to pregnancy and childbirth. “You plan your career. You work your ass off,” says Robinson. “I’ve never operated from a place of helplessness in any other part of my life. Why would I do that with this?”
