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. There is that saying, “You can’t stop the…

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…

Finding your baby’s song

There is a tribe in Africa when a woman decides that she is ready to have a child, she goes off and sits under a tree, all by herself, waiting and listens until she can hear the song of the child she is wanting to manifest. After she hear the song and tunes into the vibration of it, she comes back to partner who she will raise and parent this baby with, and teaches it to him. And then, when they make love to conceive a child, they sing the song of the child, as a way to invite it into their lives .Eventually when the mother is pregnant, the mother teaches that child’s song to all the women of the village. When the child…

PEW – 12 – Purge Emotional writing ritual

I was hanging with one of my FABULOUS clients a month or so ago and was doing a birth prep session with her and her husband about working through any fears she or he had about motherhood, parenthood or birth. She said, “I’m good, I feel totally relaxed, excited and free of any blocks or fears. I was like wow, thats fucking awesome and amazing! She shared with me a daily ritual a teacher ( Dr Habib Sadeghi founder of The Bee Hive Of Healing http://behiveofhealing.com/team-view/dr-habib-sadeghi-d-o/) of hers taught her called PEW-12 Purge writing that helps clear the emotional junk that many of us carry. Since that day I have made this part of my morning ritual and I can’t even begin to tell you…

Helping new daddy bond and connect with baby

As a new mother, there is an undeniable intuitive knowing and connection between a mother and her child. Your baby is totally dependent on you and is comforted just by your energy, scent, heartbeat, and voice. And as the mother, you are the most consistent and stable thing they have known for the past nine months. you produce food for your babies to thrive on, and breast feeding also deepens the connection and bonding experience between mother and child. They are helpless on their own without you. I often hear many woman fearfully complain that their husband/partner isn’t bonding or connecting with their new baby. I have spoken with a lot of men about this, ones that were actively involved from the start and ones…

CRYSTALS FOR FERTILITY, PREGNANCY, CHILDBIRTH , MOTHERHOOD AND BABES

I love crystals !! I have them all over my house, wear them all the time and bring them into the birth space with me. I first learned about crystals and their healing properties from my dear friend ,a crystal healer and one of the two Energy Muse jewelry creators,Heather Askinosie.

Next thing I knew I walked away with 10 new necklaces !! Heather knows crystals better then anyone I have EVER met, she has turned me on to so many different kinds of crystals…

How to experience an awesome labor.

I want to share an article I did a few months ago How to experience the best labor with the amazing people over at LivingHealthy.com My tips and tricks for soon to be birthing moms: Repo your due date: According to several studies, only five to 10 percent of women give birth on their actual due date. “Many women go crazy if the baby doesn’t come by the exact date,” Bregman explains, “but remember, your due date is only an estimate.” She suggests carving out a weeklong window on each side so you aren’t attached to that date. You should even tack on an extra 10 days when you tell people when the baby is due. “Your loved ones will drive you nuts when they…

Yesterday they just raised 78$ (and lot’s of awareness) to help foster baby elephants through the amazing non profit the David Sheldrick wildlife trust .
