My 3rd Home Birth Story

Is Home Birth Right for You?

SIX MONTH AGO… I had a baby in my bedroom.

(That’s one way to start a conversation, right? Haha!)

I was 3 days away from my due date… feeling pretty miserable…

I was not feeling like the pregnant Goddess in the picture above…

I WAS OVER IT.


I was not sleeping. My stomach felt so HUGE! It was so hard to get comfortable at night…

I’m just telling it like it was… I was laying in bed praying that I would go into labor because I really didn’t think I could make it much longer. read more

    What Your Pimples Are Telling You

    Have you ever heard of “face mapping”??

     

    Face mapping, which combines modern dermatology with ancient Chinese medicine, is the idea that there’s a correlation between your internal organs and different zones of your face.

     

    This means that where your pimples are popping up could be an indication of something underlying going on inside you and give you some clues of how to treat your whole body.

     

    Just recently, I noticed several pimples showing up above my brow, then I read it could be my immune system fighting against something. Then, the next day I started with seasonal allergies… my skin really was telling me something was going on!

    It is so interesting!! 

    Face mapping can actually identify underlying causes of your acne. Once you’ve identified the cause, it’s easier to prevent it. While some causes are unavoidable (hormones during that time of the month, for instance), diet and lifestyle changes can definitely help to clear up your skin.

    Favorite Fall Essential Oil Blends

    Fall is my FAVORITE season…

    via GIPHY

    I love getting to pull out my boots… my sweaters… my favorite coffee mugs…

    and I love the scents that fall brings!

     

    But one thing I learned was that burning scented candles not only wasn’t safe with little kids around… it also wasn’t HEALTHY! 

     

    Just think all those chemicals and artificial scents that you are burning are going into the AIR and you are breathing them in… without even knowing.

     

    So what is the answer?
