You know that favorite Yankee candle of yours? Or that Febreze you spray all over your apartment to make it smell “clean”? Have you ever stopped to think about the fact that the fragrances from these products could negatively impact your health? That the fragrances they emit aren’t derived from natural sources and are actually […]

How Fragrance Impacts Your Overall Health and Fertility

Growing up, all I knew was that babies have breast milk or formula and then transition over to rice cereal as they begin to eat food. Since I have a background in holistic nutrition, I found it very odd that pediatricians recommended rice cereal as the first food for babies to try. Knowing that there […]

The Importance of Letting Your Baby Explore Food

Giving birth to my daughter changed me in the best way possible. I actually believe that it changed me in many ways, sometimes in ways I haven’t realized until someone points them out to me. When you give birth, you actually meet two new people – your sweet little babe, AND yourself, as a mother. […]

Advocate Like a Mother

Over this past year, I have realized the importance of using your voice and being your authentic self. Whether it’s the way you show up in your personal relationships or hell, the way you present yourself on your social media platforms.

My Breastfeeding Journey

Motherhood, where do I even begin? I truly feel that as soon as you become pregnant, you are a Mother. You spend the next eight to nine months taking care of your body, growing your baby, keeping your baby safe, and preparing for their arrival. You read all the baby books, sing songs, talk to […]

What I’ve Learned in My first year of Motherhood

Baby wearing or carrying – ever heard of it? I’m sure you’ve seen all the fancy carriers parents have these days, but I’m here to tell you that this isn’t just some new trend. Baby wearing has been around for a LONG time, in different countries, across various cultures. I recently read a post about […]

Baby wearing

Photo Credit: Ashley O’Connell (Document Now Photography) The last few weeks before our little babe was born, I had a feeling she was coming early. Around 36 weeks, I felt my hips begin to spread and she had been positioned low throughout my entire pregnancy. At my baby shower (when I was 35 weeks) I […]

The Birth Story of Tallulah Rose

Let’s be HONEST about eating during the first trimester. This blog post is 100% based on my own personal experience, and hell, it is different for EVERYONE during the first 13 weeks of pregnancy. Prior to being pregnant, I practiced eating intuitively, meaning that I listened to my body and ate whatever I felt it […]
