How to be safe and comfortable when traveling on airplanes during pregnancy

With the holidays now in full swing I have been getting tons of emails from clients and people asking me what’s the best way to be safe and comfortable while flying the friendly skies. Here is my top tips for safe travels.  Wear comfortable loose clothing . Bring a towel and roll it up place it behind your lower back for support. Bring a neck pillow. Stay SUPER hydrated. Dehydration can restrict blood flow and circulation to the uterus and placenta and increase the risk of blood clots.  Bring healthy snacks to munch on.  Take vit c ( while flying 1,000) for a little immune boost ( I also love Emergen- C powder drink you can add to your water )  Avoid salt , greasy and gas…

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 ,…

JUST BREATHE

Deep belly breathing has so many healing and health benefits. It’s something I have all my moms to be do in birth. Your power is in the breath … You can’t stop the waves but the way that you breathe through them can help you have a more relaxed and easier ride. The slower and deeper you breathe the calmer you will become. By doing a few rounds of simple breath- work (taking 4 seconds to inhale through the nose and 4 seconds to exhale through you mouth)you will increase serotonin levels, calm your mind and center your thoughts. Breathing deeply floods your body with oxygen which in turn increases blood flow. It helps clear the lungs of toxins, unplugs and calms the nervous system,…

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

Holistic remedies for cold and flu season during pregnancy

Tis the season … Yup it’s that time of year again where coughing and sniffles fill the air. As much as you try and avoid the sick people in your life  or the germs that fill the air sometimes you just get plan old sick. I remember reading years ago that a cold is your body’s natural way to detox. It’s something that I always think about now when I get one.  One of the best things to do to help the detox process is obviously stay hydrated. Water, water and even more water. Try adding some fresh lemon to really flush out the system. Also coconut water and hot tea with lemon and honey for sore throat and cough. But,  my all time fav…

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…

Bieler’s Healing Broth

Last night I was with a client that was sick. Her husband made a batch of this soup to help her heal that was sooooooooooo delicious and good. I left them and ran to whole foods and bought all the ingredients and this morning made me a big old batch of it. This makes a lot so after eating some I put the extra in mason jars and stored in the freezer. I figured I can bring these to births with me to drink while I’m in labor with clients. It will be especially good to drink daily during flu season or while working in the hospital.  This original super healing recipe was developed by Physician Henry Bieler to help heal a variety of illnesses.…

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…

The amazing teacher who was so lite up with light – Flissa Mannella lead us though this mediation at the end of class that I absolutely loved and have been doing with myself daily as well as with my clients.
