New mama Wellbeing Jar

Being a new mom as magical and amazing as it is comes with its fair share of hardships. During pregnancy when coaching my moms to be I do a lot of work on self care and empowering them to be their authentic selves as well as supporting them in their truth, whatever that may be. I try to lock this new way in while pregnant because when they become a new mom often all of it goes out the window and they become the last man on the totem pole. When you are depleted and are running on empty its VERY hard to be present, patient, compassionate, loving and understanding. Taking care of yourself is not selfish but an act of self love. When you…

You are awesome !

This ones for all the mamas that struggle with perfection and don’t see how amazing they are . These mamas keep raising the bar for themselves, constantly striving for more as if what they do they never feel like it’s enough or who they are isn’t good enough. Every time they get close to the finish line, they keep moving it out as if trying to reach an unattainable goal .. (perfection)I was shopping for a birthday gift and I came across these amazing journals, one of them was called “I’m kind of awesome” I started having my mamas that struggle with perfection and are hard on themselves do nightly. They were to keep a daily journal of 3 things they did or about who…

FENG SHUI – For Life Transitions With “The Feng Shui Guy”

I first heard of Joe AKA “The Feng Shui Guy” from my friend Rachel back when I was her doula and supported her throughout her pregnancy. She told me how when she was ready to manifest her husband and she hired Joe to come Feng Shui her house and do some inner work to help shift the energy for love and marriage. A week later she walked into a bar and met her amazing husband Noah and now they have a beautiful healthy baby boy. Now Joe and his fabulous wife Erin are expecting and I’m so honored because I get to be their doula. YAY !!!! Over the course of of their pregnancy Joe and I had many spiritual talks about energy, love ,…

We are all just doing the best we can with what, where and who we are at each stage of our lives. 

We are all doing the best we can with what, where and who we are at each sage of our lives. If you could have handled a situation better in the past then find the lesson and add it to your bag of “life tools” that you can take with you and bring into the future. This way when or if you should ever find yourself in a similar situation you now have more wisdom and knowledge then you did before on how to deal with it better.This is how we learn and grow. Anything before today is in the past .. Holding onto it or beating yourself up about what you could have done different or better is keeping you stuck and spinning in…

A positive mindset is everything in birth 

A positive mindset in #birth is everything! Your body follows what your mind tells it to do. Your body doesn’t know pain. It’s your mind that says this is painful. Personalized birth affirmations and sayings are some of my favorite tools to use in birth. Everyone has a different something that works for them and often you won’t know what you need until you are in the sacred birth space. Some of the most amazing births I have ever done the women were so in their power by chanting words of encouragement to themselves and their babies out loud. There is that saying, “You can’t stop the waves from coming but you can learn how to surf.” When a contraction starts, if you go into…

I AM …… 

The universe is responding to the energy you are exuding. Pay attention to this .. Become aware of your self talk and self beating . Turn your negative self talk into a positive mantra about yourself and say it time after time, day after day until you become it and believe it . Take the steps and actions to bring more of that into your life and being. See and feel yourself living and being this way. The way we feel about ourselves inside manifests on the outside .. Everything in our life is a reflection of this. It all starts with you. If you thing you are shit 💩 … Your life will be shit💀💨 … Im sticking with Choosing love 💓 because like…

A fun filled day of gratitude for kids 

Being that it is November the month of Thanksgiving, I often use this whole month to give thanks for all that I have. I have a month of November desk calendar and each day I write 3 things down that I was grateful for that day. Thanksgiving day I look back on the month and reflect. When we connect with gratitude we get to see how rich our life really is .The other day I worked with my dear friend and old client Mary and her 3 little boys . I had worked with Mary all through her pregnancies as well as after and have remained close to this day. It is so important that we teach children the value of gratitude as it turns…

There are signs from the universe everywhere.

When you really pay attention and listen the universe is always giving you signs and messages to help better guide you on your path. Ok people get ready I am about to get all woo woo on you all ! HA !!! The other day I had this nagging urge to pick a few tarot cards which was weird because  I haven’t picked any in months. I didn’t do it but the next morning it was like something was shouting at me and pushing me to do it so I did. I asked, what is it that I need to know for me right now ? I randomly picked the 10 of Penticals , The High priestess and the wheel of fortune. I reached for…

Mindset Is Everything, Especially In Birth

I just left a magical birth and I wanted to write about this while its fresh in my mind. A positive mindset in birth is everything! Your body follows what your mind tells it to do. Your body doesn’t know pain. It’s your mind that says this is painful. Personalized birth affirmations and sayings are some of my favorite tools to use in birth. Everyone has a different something that works for them and often you won’t know what you need until you are in the birth space. Some of the most amazing births I have ever done the women were so in their power by chanting words of encouragement to themselves and their babies out loud.

To have or not have my mother or mother in law in the delivery room … 

 SHOULD I HAVE MY MOM OR MOTHER IN LAW IN THE BIRTH ROOM?  As a doula, this is a question that seems to come up a lot when I prep a couple for birth. I always ask- ” Do you want them there?” It always amazes me how many people answer .. NO … and then go on to saying . they feel bad and guilty. Try and stick to a YES or NO answer without over thinking it. Stay away from the But …. as everything that follows a no is often not your truth but some form of guilt that has been projected onto you. One thing I do to help with this is to have my clients get in their truth about…
