I Feel Like I Live in Somebody Else’s Body – Racked

“Although I’ve lost 20 of the 40 pounds I gained with my second pregnancy, I still can’t wear regular jeans, even in a much larger size, because of the flab that hangs at my midsection. I’ve been texting with my friend who had a baby a few weeks after me. We lament the lack of a muffin emoticon to express our muffin-top plight. She sends me a donut with sprinkles. Here, we can use this.”

Alex founded Hello My Tribe not because she was an expert on motherhood, but because she was a mom who desperately needed support and community. During those tough first months of motherhood, Alex spent day after day reading and learning about motherhood. She learned: 1. She wasn’t alone in her feelings about motherhood. 2. Everything we could have ever dreamt of existed for the baby, but there was a lack of resources for the woman/mother 3. There are many maternal health issues in our country that need attention and need to be addressed. Hello My Tribe was built upon these needs. Previous to launching Hello My Tribe in 2016, Alex was a professional and volunteer fundraiser, raising millions of dollars for non-profit organizations. Alex lives in Austin, TX with her husband, son, and two rescue dogs.
