Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Molly Nourmand, Founder and CEO of Life After Birth®, located in Los Angeles, CA, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

Life After Birth® provides mental health support and wellness services for pregnancy, postpartum, and parenting.

Tell us about yourself

In 2017, following my own journey with birth trauma and postpartum depression, I utilized my experience as both a seasoned psychotherapist and survivor of a perinatal mood disorder to create Life After Birth®. Through my company, I successfully began process-oriented support circles that help birthing people transition into parenthood. In addition, I serve the same population with 1:1 therapy sessions, birth storytelling, postpartum planning, and retreats for mothers. After several years of helping women through the metamorphosis of motherhood, I was called to expand my offerings and grow the Life After Birth® community even larger. What motivates me to continue to do the work I do is the growth and confidence I get to witness in the women that I work with.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My support circles are sought after, and I have waitlists for them.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Knowing when to stop work for the day. Since there are endless tasks that you can do as a business owner, it can be easy for me to lean toward workaholism if I'm not careful. It's hard for me to turn my brain off, and I sometimes get insomnia.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Have a clear vision for your business.
  2. Ask for help along the way, especially if it's something that's not in your skill set.
  3. Keep up your self-care practices to avoid burnout.
