My Natural Birth Story to My 11.5 lb Son

I think it’s important to say that any woman who brings a child into the world is incredible! Whether the delivery be vaginal or cesarean, medicated or not, that woman has sacrificed herself — emotionally and physically — because of the love she has for her child. The main reason why I want to share my…

Why You Should Create a Birth Plan

I am so excited to chat about putting together a Birth Plan. It’s been my favorite thing! As baby’s delivery day approaches, uncertainty settles in stronger. I would imagine it’s not only first-time moms who want to be as prepared as possible, especially since every pregnancy and baby is different. One of the things that…

Packing Baby’s Hospital Bag

Baby Registry – What Products and Why?

Happy Friday!!! One of my favorite things that I have put together this pregnancy is my baby registry.

Pregnancy Update: 32 Weeks

I have been REALLY bad at documenting my pregnancy journey thus far. I had fully intended to do a bi-weekly report, but here I am at 32 weeks doing my first update! HAHA, fail! Life can get in the way sometimes, but here I am ready to report. I think it’s worth noting that I…

Favorite Skin Care Product for Pregnancy

In all honesty, I try products with skepticism. I have tried plenty of skin care products with a variety of claims, and often times, they don’t work as well as I would hope.  I focused on products that would reduce dark spots and scars. A few years ago, my friend recommended Bio-Oil to me while…
