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…

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.

Sometimes you just got to vibe alone for a bit

Sometimes you just got to vibe alone to regroup, refuel and connect back in with yourself. When you are constantly around others your energy can start to blend and mix in with theirs often leading to loosing your own identity. It’s import every once in while to take alone time for yourself to dust off your aura and reclaim your energy. A trigger for me when I haven’t taken enough time for myself is I get irritable or anxious … This is a sign I need to regroup with myself. Often I find there is some emotion or situation that I just needed a few minutes alone to process and feel. You can’t explore what you need if there isn’t any space to do so.…
