A Postpartum Doula Discusses Tully (after a screening with director Jason Reitman)

WARNING: This post contains all kinds of spoilers. I’m gonna spill the beans about what this movie is about - don’t say I didn’t warn you! If you’re at all curious or interested in this movie, go see it first...then come back and read this. A word of advice, though: if you’re a mother/parent and had a difficult postpartum time, especially with regards to your emotional and mental well being, please see this movie with a good friend or someone with whom you can chat about it afterwards. It will stir up emotions. I don’t say this lightly. If you don’t care about spoilers, then by all means, read on.

The postpartum period is a time to get cozy and comfortable, keep warm, and snuggle with the new tiny human in your life. I honestly can’t think of a better beverage than hot chocolate to accompany this time of healing, emotions, and family.
