After I had my first baby, I did a series of “Body after baby” posts because I felt like post partum bodies weren’t being shown or talked about enough.  I didn’t know what to expect my body to look like (or feel like) post partum because people weren’t openly talking about their experiences!  Part of what I love to use this blog for, is to shed light on topics just like this…

Our little girl, Finnley Raine made her arrival on Dec 2 at 3:25pm after just an hour of labour! She was born at home, on our bed, surrounded by my husband, mom and two midwives.  She’s 12 days old now and such a sweet sweet baby! Here is her birth story…  Oh, fair warning that it’s a bit graphic. I mean, birth IS graphic! I’m tired of it being glossed over and people having an unrealistic idea of what it looks like.

Well, I’m almost 40 weeks pregnant and pretty much ready for baby to make her arrival!  With my first, I planned a birth center birth but this time around I knew I wanted a home birth.  I will say, preparing for a home birth has definitely been more work but I’m really excited about it and thought I’d share some tips on getting prepared!  Also, if you’re freaked out by the idea of a home birth maybe this will help calm you a bit  haha

With the birth center,

Moms are always encouraged to make and freeze some meals before baby arrives but how many of us actually do it?  In my defense, I did try last time but baby was 2 weeks “late” and by then I’d eaten most of it haha This time around I haven’t frozen much but I do plan on getting help where I can!  I’ve used meal prep services before and while they can still be a lot of work,

Fall is quickly approaching! I love Fall, I have to admit.  Summer is great and the Winter holidays can’t be beat but when it comes to style, Fall is my jam. Give me all the layers, boots, cozy cardigans and hats!

I was pretty happy with my maternity wardrobe all Summer and I feel like going into Fall I’m pretty set! It’s kind of a great season to be in your third trimester because….

I was breastfed as a baby and just always assumed that unless I was actually unable to, I would choose to breastfeed my own children. I understand that this isn’t a choice everyone makes and I’ll admit, sometimes I do feel frustrated when I see a mom choosing formula because she’s afraid breastfeeding will make her nipples weird (or something to that affect) because to me that’s not a strong enough reason to deprive your child of something that is SO SO good for them!

Why go natural & organic during your pregnancy? Here are just some of the benefits…

  • What you put on your body can affect you as well as your unborn baby.  It has been said that women use an average of 12 personal care products a day which means they could be exposed to over one hundred unique chemical ingredients some of which may not be good for their health!
  • Your hormones change when you’re pregnant which effects your skin greatly Switching your skincare to natural and organic products can be much gentler on your sensitive skin.
