The Mama Behind Fourth Trimester Mama
Stacy Ni, Founder
“After having two babies in two years and going through postpartum back to back, I became that friend that talks more about postpartum recovery than childbirth when someone I know gets pregnant. I was the first of my friends to get pregnant, and the fourth trimester was not anywhere on my radar. Somewhere between the excitement of pregnancy, the anticipation of birth, and the nesting urge to decorate the nursery, postpartum recovery just got lost in the shuffle. It wasn't until I was pregnant with my second that I realized the value of preparing for what my body and emotions would go through after having a baby. By planning ahead, I felt better cared for physically and emotionally during a time when I didn't have the energy to focus on anything other than my newborn. As I recovered, I felt a strong desire to help pregnant women better prepare for their postpartum recoveries... and Fourth Trimester Mama was born.”
Prior to founding Fourth Trimester Mama, Stacy was a Brand Manager at Mondelez International, where she managed brands including Oreo, Ritz, and Halls. Though she initially went back to work when her oldest was 4.5 months, within the subsequent four months she and her husband had both quit their NYC jobs, moved down to the suburbs of DC, and completely re-engineered the way they live their lives. Today, Stacy juggles running her startup e-commerce business and wrangling two toddlers, and loves every second. Stacy holds a BA and an MBA from New York University.
