I remember being a mom for the first time and not knowing what in the world to expect!

qef with baby

See, I've been in your shoes before. Well actually, I've been in them 4 times! But the first time was a whirlwind.  I am thankful that I had a support system. I still get nostalgia thinking of the fresh guacamole my favorite cousin made for me on my first day back from the hospital. Or the support I felt when my neighbor/postpartum doula offered to accompany us to our first pediatric appointment.  But there's also an overlying fog from my first postpartum experience -  I didn't know what to expect for recovery and, yes, I was up doing everything within 4 days! Nothing felt just right. And it wasn't until I had my second child that I could pinpoint what was actually wrong with my first experience

I didn't know ANYTHING!

And it took until becoming a doula and having my fourth child that I realized the importance of planning and finding my tribe.  Maybe it was because I was now an "older" mom or maybe I just didn't want it to go like before.  With my fourth child I had a lot of firsts - I took my full parental leave; I gave birth in a birthing center; I was vigilant about my postpartum mental health; and I dived head first into full-time entrepreneurship!

So, like you, I'm not just a mom—I'm an entrepreneur - juggling two businesses and freelancing gigs. It's a far cry from the corporate grind I used to know, but it is more rewarding. From the cozy confines of my home office (kid's bedroom), I'm pulling in the same six-figure income I did in my nursing days, but now I'm calling the shots and doing work that sets my soul on fire.

Now, armed with my own messy, beautiful journey and a burning passion to pay it forward, I'm here to be your virtual sidekick as you navigate the wild ride of postpartum life. Together, we'll tackle the sleepless nights, the diaper blowouts, and the endless to-do lists—all while keeping our entrepreneurial dreams alive and kicking.

Let's dive headfirst into this adventure called parenthood, because trust me, there's no one-size-fits-all manual, but Let's Prep for Postpartum is the program that will guide the way.

Do you wonder how you can Enjoy Postpartum, Take the Parental Leave you DESERVE, and still be your own BOSS?

What's The Fair Play Method?

The Fair Play Method is a groundbreaking method developed by Eve Rodsky and detailed in her book "Fair Play: A Game-Changing Solution for When You Have Too Much to Do (and More Life to Live)".

Eve Rodsky recognized the need for a more equitable division of household tasks and parenting responsibilities, leading her to create Fair Play. This modern approach empowers families to find balance by using four simple rules, 100 household cards, and engaging conversation starters.

Fair Play promotes open communication, shared accountability, and respect for each other's contributions. By implementing the Fair Play method, parents can create a more harmonious and supportive environment, reducing stress and fostering a stronger partnership.

Say goodbye to the overwhelming days of the past and welcome a new era of fairness and collaboration in your family life with Fair Play.

Hi! I'm Qef Johnson, the Magical Creator around here.

I created The Magical Birth to hyou create the parenthood journey you desire. As a mother of 4, I've experienced the struggle of being a new parent, the lack of support, and just not knowing where to start. And like so many others, I suffered unexpectedly through postpartum depression and anxiety. These experiences have reinforced my passion as a Nurse, Doula, Childbirth Educator, and Parental Leave Coach. And yup, I'm an entrepreneur just like you!

My superpower is helping you see the magic in your parenthood journey.

We've got friends in some cool places
