in all the “busy” moments of life (house projects, chasing a 20 month around, meal prepping, work, errand running, etc) it is too easy for me to not put Brian first. before anything else in life, he deserves my attention, my support, and my love. i fail too often at showing him those things but one thing i hope he always feels is my love. it is my most common words spoken to him, and while he doesn’t know it, “i love him so much” are the most common thoughts in my head. choosing him as my spouse has been the easiest choice in my life and continues to be. marriage is still my favorite “thing” ever and i want to continue to choose us in the craziness of everyday life. y’all, marriage rocks.
It’s so important to take moments to connect during pregnancy. It can be a busy time, especially for first time parents. There’s so much information coming your way, books you want to read, classes to take. It can be easy to get lost in the sauce a little bit. .
What helps bring you back into present moment Gentle touch. We know that touch is a really wonderful way to connect in any relationship. Touch releases oxytocin, the love hormone, and creates a sense of safety, comfort and relaxation. This can be particularly wonderful during pregnancy AND during labor. What’s good for mom is good for baby, right When mom is feeling relaxed and taken care of, baby is swimming in those same emotional juices. .
This nurturing hold - hand on heart, hand on sacrum -is a really beneficial way to help mom experience a deeper sense of calm and gives the couple an opportunity to drop into deeper presence with each other. Breathing and relaxing together. .
Want to learn more ways to be present together in labor, hands-on comfort measures, the different stages of labor and how to navigate them and any possible interventions with ease Join Nicole Havelka of Wilmington Doula Services and I on Sunday, March 3rd from 1:30-5:00pm for our Couples Labor + Birth Prep Workshop.

This kid rocks! He is my last baby and that has been a hard pill to swallow! He is 4 months shy of being 2 years old. Who would have thought that I’d miss the late night feedings.
Being his mom is such a blessing. As I sit here in tears over him growing up, I’m also recognizing how thankful I am to have been able to carry and deliver 4 children.
The emotions today are crazy and real! Holding on to every minute of my last things as a mom. ❤️ Also looking forward to all the future firsts I will have with my kids!

Everyone has one of four blood types - A, B AB or O. You inherit your blood group from a mix of your parents genes. These blood groups are further identified as being either RhD negative or RhD positive. If your blood group is RhD negative, it is not usually a problem unless you are pregnant and your baby is RhD positive. One of the first tests a pregnant woman should expect is a blood group test. This tests her blood group and Rh factor. Her Rh factor may play a role in her baby's health so it is important to know this information early in pregnancy.
If an Rh negative mother is exposed to Rh positive blood they can develop immunity via antibodies to the RhD antigen.
A small amount of the baby's blood may enter the mother's blood stream during pregnancy or birth (a sensitising event) leading the mother to produce antibodies against the Rh positive cells.
A sensitising event does not affect a first pregnancy but if the woman has a further pregnancy with an Rh positive baby, her immune response will be greater and she may produce harmful antibodies that cross the placenta and cause severe damage to the growing fetus.
Rhesus disease is uncommon these days as it can be prevented by using injections of a medication called Anti d immunoglobulin. The medication will remove any RhD positive cells that enter the maternal blood stream and prevent immunity from developing.

We’ve been having so much fun at @toyfair_ny! What are some toys you want to see in the store this year
#mondaymotivation swipe left to see 7 months of postpartum fitness progress and keep reading to see why I felt I should share.
I planned on being the mom who gets cleared for fitness at 6 weeks postpartum and get to work in the gym. When I was cleared, I was physically capable but not physically ABLE, due to I just had a baby ppl and he wanted to nurse around the clock, I was sleep deprived (still am), nap times were a struggle and mentally it was just flat out impossible.
Mamas, if you’re there, it’s OK. I got down on myself about it so hard in the beginning. None of my clothes fit, my body ached from lack of muscle strength and I just wanted to fit in my clothes again. I didn’t start working out until 8 months later. And you know what That’s ok.
So I wasn’t the mom who had her baby in September was beach bod ready by that coming summer... I was however the mom who decided to stop getting on myself and embrace the body I had because it created and sustained human life.
Another mom told me casually one day, it takes a about a year to grow a baby and a year to get your body back. While that differs for everyone, it gave me peace and rest. When my body and mind were ready, I would begin again.
I am just as proud of myself in the first progress picture as I am in the last. It takes hard work to grow, birth, and nurse a baby. It’s hard work to discipline myself to get in the garage and lift, especially since I had to really listen to my body and wasn’t able to push myself like i used to. If having Jude has taught me anything it’s to slow down. And for us Mama’s sometimes that’s a good thing. Give yourselves some grace because it’s true what they say: our bodies are never the same after having a baby, they are 100x stronger. 💪🏼
PS: my body got stronger, but notice how my garage got messier 🤷🏻♀️
My everything 👨👩👧👧 I can’t believe I only have 1 day of mat leave left 😣 I’m going to miss my baby girls soooo much, I’ve not really had time to think about going back to work yet with planning the girls 1st birthday & christening but now it’s starting to hit home and I’m getting aaallll the feels 😭❤️ #myfamily #everything #christening #1stbirthday #proudparents #backtowork
I painted this when I first started recovery. It seems so cliche of a message but when your mental health is so clouded and your self hatred is your biggest enemy...coming out of a 5 year blur of alcohol and other substances....this got me through some hard shit. I hope that everyone knows whatever you’re going through it’ll be ok. I got the picture of a cloudy sky and one small clearing of sun and even though the whole sky is dark the face of the sunflower finds the one bright ray of sun. Giving it hope for much sunnier days. The sun is always there even when the clouds block its light. 🌻🌥🌻⛅️🌻🌤🌻
