Codie Elaine Oliver is a wife, mom, and filmmaker of the Black Love series on OWN. We chatted about her beautiful family and how she made it work having to return to the office so soon after the birth of her children.

Key takeaways

  1. All of the balls don’t stay in the air – we moved some things around to make it work
  2. If I’m going to do it (working soon after having baby) then I better do it well
  3. We do check-ins with my husband and the kids to figure out what they need

I was reminding myself that I love what I’m doing and it’s important work to me. I did take pride in knowing that if I’m going to do it I’m going to do it well.
