Former Genera Hospital star Briana Nicole Henry is ready to talk about her journey as a mom to date. The actress took to Instagram on Monday (Jun. 13) to share her triumphs and struggles as a new parent, which have included changing her wardrobe.
“As a new mom, it takes a second to find your footing with how you want to dress,” Briana told her social media fans. “I’m definitely still navigating that,” the actress added. “For me, personally, comfort has been winning these days,” Briana shared with her supporters. “The difficult balance has been finding clothes that call me back into my power while simultaneously being convenient and comfortable.”
Briana Nicole Henry and her husband, Kris Bowers, welcomed their little one in March. The actress shared the news of her expectancy last November, which was just in time for Thanksgiving and nearly two months after their one-year wedding anniversary.
“My pregnancy journey was full of a lot of surrendering,” Briana Nicole Henry shared with her fans two weeks after giving birth. “Surrendering to my body when I was told I had to have an emergency procedure called a cervical cerclage to help prevent me from potentially losing my baby,” the actress revealed.
“Surrender to having to spend most of my pregnancy in the house or in bed with limited activity. Surrender to my depressive episodes because so much of my body felt out of my own control. And ultimately surrender to how this little girl would come into the world the way she needed to when she needed to.”
Briana Nicole Henry went on to tell her fans, “I learned a lot about who I am through the pain and sacrifice I had to move through during this journey, and although I’m still healing and still processing all that it took to get her here, I’m so grateful for it all. Moms are remarkable. Pregnancy is an act of ultimate love. I look at her and know we were meant to meet this way.”
