Isobel is globe trotting to interview mothers around the world and dive into global care practices.

Most expectant mothers DON'T consider the importance of planning for their postpartum journey. This was highlighted at the recent baby expo we attended. So much attention was placed on the shiny prams, clothes with beautiful prints, warmers for wet wipes and bottles. I built Elan to place priority and care on mothers. For them to feel prepared, well-nourished, and supported throughout their motherhood journey. Prepare and anticipate with our Elan Postpartum Planning Workbook, we have carefully curated over 100 pages filled with imagery, quotes, prompts and activities, calendars and checklists. A mother’s early postpartum days are often filled with feelings of exhaustion, loneliness and overwhelm. Whilst in your sacred window of pregnancy, jot down your feelings and create your village of support for your postpartum journey.
