Postnatal care kit for mom: three different size maxi pads, Tucks, nursing pads, perineal squirt bottle, new mama bottom spray, Americaine spray (from hospital), Dibucaine Gel from Doctor, and cheap Hanes underwear (I used the mesh undies for the first few days home and then switched to cotton). Take collace for three days to help soften stool. Learn more tips on my blog: motherhoodtakesavillage.blogspot.com
Using a rather unique medium, Elonë, a woman from Karlsruhe, Germany, is posting feminist phrases on maxi pads and posting them around the city. When she shared her first project idea on Tumblr, the photo she posted was shared over 100,000 times in just two days. Her messages include issues on violence, inequality, street harassment, and more. Women all over the world have written to Elonë hoping to conduct the same art projects around their own cities.
