Nana Eyeson-Akiwowo and Marcia A. Cole are two friends and former magazine and digital editors also known for their profound philanthropic work. Their latest venture is Fourth Phase, a company that provides beautifully curated gift boxes that deeply support the mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing of new mothers.
The fourth trimester of a new mother’s journey is one of the most critical phases of motherhood, yet across the world, women in the postpartum period are often neglected because everyone’s focus is on the newborn baby. These ladies thought of everything a new mother would need and they put it all into their Fourth Phase boxes. They even created separate boxes for vaginal births and belly births (the term they use for C-sections).
In this episode, we talk about why the fourth trimester is important, why many new mothers are unprepared for the fourth trimester, how we can advocate for ourselves during this time, what new mothers should expect to happen with their bodies in the fourth trimester, how Fourth Phase boxes help new mothers, and so much more!
