Reflect, Revel, Regard

It’s certainly been a while since I’ve published a post. While my intentions have been to engage with you all and provide updates on my holistic health journey, my ability to do so has been limited. My time has been largely devoted to my family and my business. I’ll be sure to share on that... Continue Reading →

The Fourth Trimester

The fourth trimester is considered to be the first three months of the post-partum period. This time is especially important as it is when mother and baby learn each other, discover their new roles, and adjust to this new normal. It is why prenatal classes recommend new parents simplify their daily routine by meal prepping... Continue Reading →

The Equidistant Center

Yesterday was Mother’s Day as well as my birthday. I was born on Mother’s Day; now here I am, twenty-eight years later, celebrating my birthday on my first official Mother’s Day.

My Natural Childbirth Story

Hey there, Where has the time gone? My little guy is now 6 weeks old! I guess the adage is true: time flies when you’re having fun (and sleep deprived).

Throwback Thursday

30 Thankful Days

November is here! Bring on the cooler weather, color-turning leaves, boots, and hot apple cider! Thanksgiving is also a part of this wonderful month but has its own set of controversies. Instead of using one day to show thanks, my friends and I decided to celebrate 30 Thankful Days. Each day in the month of... Continue Reading →

October 15

  I’ve battled with what to write for today’s observance. I still don’t know what to say. I’m 1 in 4 who lost a child during pregnancy. While I am blessed and extremely thankful to be carrying my Rainbow Baby right now, I still long for my first baby. My Noodle. Losing my first has... Continue Reading →
