My daughter was born August 13,2014. I was the happiest Mom on the planet. The labor was only 3-4 hours and the delivery was nice and easy (a first for me). All those essential oils and chiropractic care really made a difference this time around! Now I know what people mean when they say it’s easy to push a baby out. I did have […]
Last night I made my healing postpartum padsicles! I am so happy baby isn’t here yet. I still have too much to do! This is my first time making healing postpartum padsicles and I am looking forward to using them (possibly next week!).
I purchased most of these items off amazon.
Pads (any preference really)
Witch Hazel (alcohol free for me)
Lavender essential oil
Helichrysum essential oil (for bruising, […]
Here is my perineum support blend that I am applying at 37 weeks pregnant. Specific oils are very helpful in preventing tears and helping the perineum stretch for labor and delivery. I ordered the oils from doTerra and just picked up the spray bottle from the grocery store.
Perineum Support Blend for Labor and Delivery
15 drops Immortelle (optional-this is a great repair blend for scars/ […]
I am somewhere between 37 and 38 weeks pregnant. My doctor has changed my due dates a few times now. The baby is measuring ahead 1-2 weeks in size, but I know that the estimates aren’t always accurate. It has been a long summer entertaining the boys and the husband. We have missed lots of out of town outings and experiences. I try to […]
I can’t believe the third trimester of my pregnancy has arrived. I am now 28 weeks. I remember the beginning of the pregnancy creeping by. I was so sick and tired that some days I felt like I wasn’t going to make it. Somehow we make it through and finally have a little relief. This little bun in my oven is very active and […]
My oldest has been in half day kindergarten all year and he is doing well. I knew from the beginning that I would be supplementing English and Math at home since kindergarten is only part time in the state of Utah . I have done the majority of my schooling and the boys schooling in Florida up until our move a year ago. I […]
Winter is almost over here in Utah. We have moments of spring weather that come and go. It is very refreshing. The last 3 months have been difficult. I was very sick with this pregnancy, and while my natural remedies for morning sickness helped occasionally…. time just needed to pass. For me it felt like an eternity! But by 18 weeks I was feeling […]
Now that I am 10 weeks pregnant with #3 the morning sickness is in full force. I remember having nausea with the boys pregnancies, but it never really seemed too bad. It seems like my nausea was more at night than the morning. With this pregnancy I have been nauseous pretty much sick week 7 and the nausea lasts from about 7 am until […]
This afternoon my 4 year old told me that he needed to go #2. He runs over to the potty and starts the process. A few minutes later he comes out of the bathroom upset and says “My booty isn’t working!”. I tried not to laugh of course. Classic mommy moment. I responded with love and compassion, “you can’t go #2?” and he says….NO. […]
December is always a really busy time for my family. My husband’s birthday is December 3rd, then my oldest son’s birthday is December 16th and my little baby Garrett’s birthday is December 25th!! Yes Christmas morning he was born. I went into labor at 11 pm Christmas Eve and he was born at 2:00 am Christmas morning! Not the plan for my ideal Christmas, […]
