#148: Empowering Your Matrescence Journey: Minimalism, Support, and Belly Binding With Gigi Vera Vincent

March 16, 2023




Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast! 


Are you an expecting mother feeling overwhelmed with the idea of transitioning into parenthood? Do you feel like you need to buy all the baby gadgets to be prepared for your little one's arrival? 


In this episode, my guest Gigi Vincent, a childbirth educator, doula, newborn care specialist, and lactation educator, is here to chat about matrescence and how to streamline the newborn learning curve, so you can thrive in the fourth trimester and beyond.


Gigi is a mom to three children and understands the importance of having a postpartum support team. In fact, after her twins were born in 2020, she realized just how important having that support was. 


In our conversation, she emphasizes the importance of asking for help and setting that up beforehand, so you’re not spending hours stressing about research when you should be relaxing.


We discuss how to get into the minimalist mindset and not get caught up in buying all the baby products out there, and Gigi also shares the benefits of Bengkung belly binding to provide stability and help the postpartum healing process.

 Some big takeaways are:

  1. Ask for help and set that up beforehand. 
  2. Have friends and family invest in your healing, not just baby stuff.
  3. Belly Binding can provide support and promote physical healing.
