Motherhood comes with a million challenges. We learn a new way of living, reprioritize pretty much everything and accept that our lives are forever changed. We’re expected to accomplish it all with a smile, a sense of humor and a love for our new lifestyle regardless of what we’ve left behind. We’re grateful for Daily Mom because we see the content spreading a message of acceptance for all moms and support for all the challenges we face, including body love.
We are Peachie Moms and we’re on a mission to give you the tools to love yourself, your body and your life as a mom. We focus on body love, mental wellness and a sense of community – unabashedly and often inappropriately talking about topics others won’t touch because they’re just too… sensitive, controversial, honest, real.

You were rear ended at an intersection.
Your doctor prescribed medication and you had unpleasant side effects.
You tripped on a curb in the parking lot of a major retail chain.

Civil litigators have seen Plaintiffs panic when they realize, by filing a lawsuit, that sensitive information they’d rather leave in the past gets dredged up. While there’s no question that a person who is legitimately injured because of someone else’s negligence should be compensated, you need to consider these 6 things first and ask yourself if a lawsuit is really worth it.
When we became moms, we didn’t realize how much our personal care fell to the wayside. During those newborn days, being able to shower felt like a personal accomplishment. It’s true that we tend to spend less time on ourselves, but don’t we still want to feel confident?
