A diary for the new mom

After the baby arrives, her first steps into her new life are often quickly recorded in a diary. But not those of the mother. Moments, a structured journal produced in Quebec with the collaboration of maternal health psychologists, offers to facilitate the mother’s adaptation to her new daily life and to help her through this period called the fourth trimester. Five minutes a day for six months is enough time to answer the questions suggested in the notebook to reconnect with yourself and create a space for yourself. Of course, you can use an ordinary notebook, but to be accompanied in the process and to have a beautiful object in your hand, it also helps to motivate you.

Moments is available online as well as in 10 stores in Quebec (including Petit Hurricane et Co., Livia Maternité, Veille sur toi and in three Clément stores starting in mid-September). Ten percent of profits are donated to La Maison Bleue, an organization that supports pregnant women in vulnerable situations.
