“This book is an incredible homage to women transitioning into the postpartum time after childbirth. This extremely important period in a new mother’s life requires essential body care and advice for moving through this period with nourishment and ease. The book offers “60 simple and delicious recipes like healing soups; replenishing meals and snacks; and calming and lactation-boosting teas, all formulated to support the unique needs of the new mother and partner.” Among the recipes, the book also offers advice acting as the ultimate companion during the first forty days of healing the body.” – about The First Forty Days via thegoodtrade.com 

“This book provides a great overview of how traditional cultures the world over have honored and helped to restore new mothers following childbirth while maintaining an open-eyed perspective on what is realistic in many western cultures today.” – AD

Hi there! I'm an actor, producer, and writer who is devoted to storytelling and mental health awareness. After struggling through my own mental health, I found that non-traditional resources, like the ones we explore on More Than You See, helped me immensely get through my dark times. Thus, this website and podcast were born! I look forward to helping you gain agency over your mental health journey as you build your own toolkit of resources, tips, and ideas. Because you never know what might help pull you out of the darkness, and we are all More Than You See.
