I am SOOOO excited to announce our new packaging for Brief Transitions postpartum mesh underwear and the #WhatAMesh campaign!
Brief Transitions originally started with a question to myself - why are postpartum mesh underwear not easily accessible for women after childbirth? Little did I know that this question would lead to an adventure of a lifetime (aka: a roller coaster ride).
As a small (but mighty!), woman owned business, I launched Brief Transitions doing everything myself - from rolling the underwear to labeling the bags and shipping out product. I am happy and proud to say that Brief Transitions is evolving into a new phase of its journey.
This new packaging relates to all facets of life. Life is messy, parenthood is messy and childbirth is definitely messy. Enter #LifeIsMeshy. See what I did there? ;)
Postpartum Mesh Underwear may seem like a simple thing, and they are in some ways. But just because something is simple, doesn’t make it less important. You may already know my story - I ran out of mesh underwear at the hospital and couldn’t find more to purchase. My mom bought me oversized granny panties and I had to cut the elastic waistband to avoid pressure on my c-section incision. Only a few days postpartum, feeling like crap, exhausted, bleeding from my privates, and leaking milk from my boobs - and I had to cut my underwear. I mean really people. How is this ok?! It’s not!
Brief Transitions is part of a movement. To talk about postpartum recovery. To support new moms. To provide products that women need and deserve to have easy access to.
I believe wholeheartedly that women supporting women and moms supporting moms are critical to our collective success - in life, family and business.
At Brief Transitions we are committed to talking about the postpartum struggles that people usually avoid. We’ll be sharing stories and experiences in a variety of ways including blog posts and interviews.
In our new Mommin’ It business series you’ll hear from moms that own businesses related to pregnancy and parenthood. Our goal is to provide you with useful and helpful information throughout all of your pregnancy and postpartum stages.
Owning a business is a labor of love and I love Brief Transitions as if it was my third child (my husband would likely agree with that too!). I am excited to be on this journey with you!
Share your postpartum story with us using the hashtag #lifeismeshy. We’d LOVE to hear from you!
