Why Share MayFlowers? The Vision Behind It
May, the month of renewal and blossoming blooms, already dedicates days to honoring mothers and promoting women’s health. But Founder Jessica McKinney believes, “Not enough!” She envisions an entire month focused on conversations and actions regarding female pelvic and perinatal health.
Jessica, a proud woman herself, celebrates her love for all things feminine, from miniskirts to painted nails. She cherishes the challenges of childbearing and breastfeeding, embodying the strength and intuition that define womanhood. Women worldwide share an unspoken sisterhood, transcending language barriers.
The Resilience of Women
Women are a complex tapestry of beauty and strength. Despite enduring pelvic pain or urinary incontinence, they often prioritize their partner’s needs over their health. This resilience can come at a cost, affecting their sensuality. Share MayFlowers aims to change this narrative.
Heroes Among Us
Jessica finds inspiration in strong women like Lyn Lusi, who co-founded Heal Africa in the Democratic Republic of Congo, providing hope and healing. She also admires Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes, whose music empowers and captivates. These women exemplify strength in different ways.
A Platform for Change
Despite progress in women’s health awareness, some topics remain taboo. Share MayFlowers aims to spark open discussions about female pelvic and perinatal health. It’s a platform for advocacy, education, and connection, bridging the public, media, and healthcare providers.
Real Issues, Real Change
Facing the Facts
Statistics underline the urgency. Nearly 80% of US women experience childbirth. Pregnancy significantly increases the risk of urinary incontinence. Chronic pelvic pain affects women disproportionately. These issues affect real people—women like you and your loved ones.
Why do women receive guidance for sprained ankles but not for postpartum recovery? Share MayFlowers challenges this norm. It’s time for women to receive the support they deserve during the physical journey of pregnancy and childbirth.
