Wüm

Bennett, a nonbinary new parent, arrives late to their postpartum “Mamas Group” at a Scandinavian-chic space called "Wüm" with 3-month-old daughter, Edie. After fighting with an impossibly frustrating baby harness and battling a poop explosion, they’re officially at their wits end, already feeling lost in the center of the new parenthood cyclone: sleep deprivation, never ending diaper changes, and an overall loss of self. What is supposed to be a space of support turns into a vortex of micro-aggressions from Instagram-ready hipster Moms.
