The internet can be such a blessing. It allows us to connect with resources all around the world, and build a sense of community that we crave in our physical lives.
The virtual world can also feel overwhelming, overstimulating, and foster a greater sense of distance or isolation. We get it. This online world is saturated with options and opinions.
The beauty is that while the accounts we choose to follow on social media contribute to the our internalized beliefs that we carry with us throughout our daily lives, we also have the opportunity to easily set boundaries around which narratives we choose to ingest.
It is as easy as clicking "follow" or "unfollow."
With the vast array of content available, how do you know which birth pages to follow and which ones to keep out of sight?
This is up to you.
As a general rule, we like to follow pages that inspire us, feel aligned with our values, and offer content that we love to share with you.
On that note, here are some of our favorite Instagram pages:
