Join us on October 20 for Make Your Self: Postpartum, a digital event. Watch live starting at 10AM PST on YouTube Premiere—and let us know you're coming by RSVPing here.

Whether you’ve recently given birth or have one on the way, it’s probably safe to assume that you have some questions, right? The truth is that while we tend to talk a lot about pregnancy, sometimes the postpartum phase tends to get overlooked—when in reality, it’s one of the most demanding (and often confusing!) times of a woman’s life.

That’s why it felt important to bring together a group of experts and moms who have navigated a lot of these things already. On October 20, you’re invited to attend Make Your Self: Postpartum, a digital event dedicated to removing some of the guesswork around those early days of motherhood. From feeding to exercising and transitioning back to work, witness thoughtful conversations around some of your most burning questions.

Catch the full day's videos on YouTube Premiere when they go live on October 20, or watch whenever you have a spare minute. (We know how busy you are.) Find the full schedule from our event below, and RSVP here.
