Avocado covered baby🥑 Dinner time around here has gotten WILD as Addy has learned dropping food on the ground is funny, screaming is the new talking and clapping gets her a loud “YAY” from mom and dad😂 Dinner time for us parents is getting harder though as she eats more table food and our creativity seems to head out the front door whenever it’s time to feed the little miss🤦🏼‍♀️ What were some foods your little one liked when they were 9months? We need some new ideas🍎🍉🥕🍳🥞

Today is chilly and the perfect day for some cozying up on the couch with a fluffy blanket and some hot chocolate 😊️ A drop of Lavender is the exact calming twist I needed in my drink! It’s relaxing and supporting my overall wellness and immunity.

If you thought motherhood makes you dummer - think again! We jokingly use the term "mom brain" to refer to moments of confusion and foginess but the connotation of the expression is quite misleading. There is scientific proof that becoming a mom actually makes you smarter. Moms "learn better and remember better" according to Cort Pedersen, professor of neurobiology at the University of North Carolina. Join us for an enlightening discussion about everything "Mom Brain" on October 24th from 6.30-9p. In Jersey City. Read about our amazing speakers in our feed. 📣Ticket link in bio!

How many times do you find yourself waiting for your family to realize that you need to recharge your batteries, mama? What is happening here is that you are WAITING. Waiting for other people to notice, or realize. You're waiting for permission. And here's the thing. Other people can't give you permission to recharge. Permission comes from YOU. Permission is something that you must give to YOURSELF. No one just 'knows' that you need something. You must acknowledge what need. And then you COMMUNICATE that with them. But the acknowledgement sort of acts like your permission slip. You can recharge any damn way you please - take guitar lessons if you'd like, so you can be NOT a mom for an hour a week. You can also strength train, or journal, or get wrapped up in DIY projects that you have been putting off since two years ago. It doesn't matter. What matters is that you aren't waiting for the permission slip from someone else, and instead, giving permission to YOURSELF. Drop me an emoji that is a clue as to how you are going to give yourself permission today.

Today, and many days I am sure, we honour those souls that we didn't get to hold as long as we would have liked. Sending strength to those that are feeling the loss today. 💗

For reaaaaal 😘

To be clear - these choices are YOURS. And because they belong to you, the decisions you land on are entirely yours, too. No need to justify, negotiate, explain, or have anyone else see it from your point of view. Period. Pregnancy and postpartum (n.) magnets for 'well-meaning' boundary violations and inappropriate inquiries from people who are 'just curious'. Though not the formal definition, we think that it is (unfortunately) a common occurrence in the realm of birth and babies to be on the receiving end of unwelcomed questions and comments. Whether it is body commentary, desire to know and give advice on the behaviors of your baby, or your decisions on very personal, often emotionally charged subjects like sleep, feeding, attachment, and birth choices; it is more likely than not that a person will experience an off-putting question or statement at some point in their parenting experience. The occurrence rate is high, the value of said-comments are low, and the importance of engaging in ensuing conversation is nearly non-existant. In any other time in adulthood would it be appropriate to ask another person how many calories they consume, what their bed looks like, or how they like to fall asleep at night? No. You deserve the same boundaries. So does your baby. So no, Not only are other people NOT owed an explaination, they are also not owed an answer, either. Your truth is yours. Period. Keep on keepin' on. Knowing that even though you feel like you're still trying to figure it all out, YOU know what is best. You're right. You're right on track. And you're right where you need to be. We don't need to know a single decision you're making, to know you're doing it, perfectly.💜

Being a mom is extremely busy, so how do you look after yourself while taking care of everyone else? It’s hard, but not impossible! 💕 In the past week, I shared wellness tips to moms/women in two completely different ways: ➡️In-home Wellness Party (yes, 20 women got together to learn how to care for themselves while laughing through games with their besties. It was a blast!) ➡️Small Group Wellness Sessions (thanks to Zoom, these groups are connecting from anywhere and everywhere around Mom Health) 💕 What do these two wellness options have in common?! These women are just like you and me! They are doing a great job caring for loved ones but are tired of letting their own needs suffer! They want to take care of themselves, too, but need some support. Added bonus: When you opt for small group sessions, you grow your tribe, increase accountability, and reduce coaching rates. 💕 Are you interested in taking back control of your own health AND also love the idea of bringing your besties along on the journey? Message me and we can chat about how small group coaching might be what you’ve been waiting for. Don’t have a group of women that you’d like to work with? No worries, you can join one of my other groups and meet some new friends.

La gravidanza è un processo per apprezzare la magia. Questo è un momento speciale, e a breve conoscerai il tuo bambino. Sei a pochi giorni dal fare alla vita a qualcuno che cambierà la tua vita. Sei a pochi giorni dal guardare il tuo corpo fare una delle cose più incredibili che possa mai fare. Sei a pochi giorni dallo scoprire il profumo di quel bambino che porti in grembo. Sei a pochi giorni dal sentire il tuo cuore allungarsi, crescere e riempirsi di tutto l'amore del mondo. Sei a pochi giorni dalla vera testimonianza di un miracolo. .

Hi all, as you know, I'm a certified professional life coach, mindfulness practitioner, and mother to 2 teenage daughters with chronic illnesses. I'm reaching out because, over the last year, I've needed support groups to help navigate their care. In the process, my self-care suffered. 👇🏻 It was then that I decided I would give back and create a space for women — working with moms who care for kids who need more than the average child. I know it on a small scale, but I want to understand it from a broader perspective. So have created a questionnaire in hopes of getting a more comprehensive understanding. 👇🏻 The questionnaire (in bio) is quick and is not a sales pitch. If anyone is interested to learn more, they're welcome to give me your name and email at the end 👇🏻 I would appreciate it if you would share this post with friends or any support groups you are in. #chronicillnesskids   #caregiversofinstagram   #kidswithneeds   #momofkidswithadditionalneeds   #momofkids   #caringforkids   #caregiversupport   #momsneedhelptoo   #overwhelmedmom   #lifecoachingforwomen   #supportingmoms

"Its Okay to feel sad and be in the moment and admit that this is not okay"-Nikita Fredericks on miscarriage. October 15 is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, a day used to observe pregnancy and infant loss through miscarriage, stillbirths, and newborn death among other infant mortality related issues. Last year Embrace movement leader @juliementor spoke to @freshestmrsfredericks who opened up about her multiple miscarriages and how it affected her and her partner. You can listen to the podcast on: https://soundcloud.com/embrace-za/invisible-motherhood-nikitas-story?in=embrace-za/sets/embrace-podcast Every year, families light candles at 7pm for an hour. Beginning in New Zealand and ending in Alaska, a Wave of Light spreads across the globe for 24 hours, in memory of the little ones that have been lost. If you are in the Muiizenburg area tomorrow, please join the Fredericks family for the annual Wave of Light Candle ceremony at Muizenburg Beach. . . . #PregnancyandInfantLossRememberanceDay   #WaveofLight   #SupportingMoms   #EmbracemovementforMothers   #instagram   #pregnancyandinfantlossawareness  

This boy and pictures 🙄 I feel this boy needs a narrator for his life, or maybe I a need an interpreter. Not sure which one. Ha. I try and understand him, hear him, see his angle, but I struggle. I struggle deep to answer those desires of connection with him. He’s always five feet ahead of me academically and one hundred yards behind me emotionally. I’m always walking the tight rope between sanity and chaos, when I connect with him. I started down a path for answers over a year ago in hopes to be able to say ‘I hear ya, buddy’ instead of asking ‘why, buddy? What’s going on now?’. Shot, maybe that path is the interpreter I’m searching for. Hummmm, No clue! Actually, I have no clue about any of this crazy parenting journey. My fun project, has provided me some fresh ideas and advice. I have a small starting place were I’m finding confidence in raising him again. Super cool to say I got all this from a project I started at 2am. (@parentingthatkid podcast) But...I’m still searching for his narrator to life, his Morgan Freeman, to give me the ah-ha moment, the apex of the storyline.

And then, it happens✨ . . . It hasn't been easy. Far from it. Every part of her has been put to the test. Her sanity. Her relationships. Her joy - Her whole self is worn. It's been a struggle. Today. This week. This month. Really, since the beginning. But she's here now. In this moment. And it is bliss. After the questioning. The wondering. The moments of regret. The longing for ease. And sleep. And a break; She sits on her couch. With a curled up universe right smack dab on the center of her chest. And finally, she can breathe. And then she feels it. The feeling that she's been waiting for. Is this it? Is this the love that everyone talks about? That's it? That's what I've been waiting for? It is so simple. And then she realizes, maybe that's the secret to it all. She's heard of the magic. She's been searching for the magic. But never could she imagine - ✨ that she'd become it. Because within this tiny moment, she has managed to fit an entire lifetime of goodness - into one second. Everything that is important, is here. And from this moment forward, she'll never question herself again. In the good times, and the toughest ones. She has now crossed the threshold, and she can carry on. She's met herself here. In a place of everything and nothing. Of mountainous and mundane. And from this second forward, she will forever continue to be, HER world's most perfect mother.💜 . . . | Image @monicagarwood |

Somedays (read “any days” and “all days”) I get anxious about not knowing exactly how to be a good mom. Where’s the rule book? Owners manual? Or even report card so I know how I’m trending? I get so stressed out about saying the wrong thing at the wrong time during one of those critical mother-daughter/ mother-son moments. I’m actually 100% sure I never say the “right thing”. But, I will tell you that the one “right thing” I know is that I love the hell out of these kids. More than my own life. And in the end, that has to count for something, right? (📷: via @aplacewithinme )

God created each and every one of us in His image, and he loves us deeply. He tells us we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” What if we looked in the mirror and were grateful for our bodies instead of nitpicking what we wish we could change about ourselves? What if we dared to believe that we are truly complete in Christ? I don’t know about you, but I need to be consistently reminding myself of this. 🙌🏽 What lies do you need to replace with Gods truth?

CLOVE. A Fall favorite, for all the things: baking, diffusing, immune boosting, oral health. It's so Autumn-y, I love it so much! 🍂 It's one of the oils in the forever loved Thieves blend! I actually stumbled upon Clove without knowing it.. 😂 It was a promotional item months ago for Essential Rewards so I got it for free. Did some searching in our educational FB group on it's uses, and decided to diffuse it with Orange and Cinnamon Bark and O.M.G. My house smelled like every best Fall-smelling scent! Basically I was hooked. Clove EO is still one of my favorites to diffuse, which I've been doing lately, especially this season with all the viral infections and bacteria making its way around. 😖⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I had no idea Clove had so many wellness (and emotional) benefits! Which would probably describe why I feel so calm when I diffuse it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here are some of them:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Can encourage sleep and stimulate dreams⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Can aid in struggles with co-dependency⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Can ease anxiousness, and help promote self-love⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Can influence healing and promote memory when diffused⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Amazing at killing germs⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Super anti-bacterial⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Numbs nerves⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Great for toothaches, teething, bad breath, and cold sores.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You HAVE to stock up this season! It is a hot oil so definitely dilute it with a carrier oil when using it internally or topically (especially on your babies). 🍁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #younglivingessentialoils   #yleo   #younglivingoils   #holistic   #crunchymama   #cleanliving   #immunesupport   #emotionalsupport   #oilymama   #plantbased   #hippiemama   #toxinfree   #essentialoilsrock   #momlife   #parentingwithoils   #girlmom   #toddlermom   #supportingmoms   #selfhelp   #sleepsupport   #cultivatingmotherhood   #intentionalliving   #wellnessjourney   #guthealth   #emotionalwellness   #healthbenefits   #healing   #fall   #emotionalbenefits   #cloveessentialoil

Ain't no 'should' like the motherhood 'should' Just imagine...how different motherhood could be, if we cut out all of the 'shoulds' and moved forward with simply what is, what works, what we want, what we need. No one else's expectations. No one else's opinions. Just us. Freedom to decide: What's a yes and what's a no. What works for you and what doesn't. What's best for your family. What's best for you. Where you allocate your time. Where you don't. What you focus your energy on. What you don't give two f*cks about. What makes you happy. What no longer serves you. These decisions - they really are yours. And ain't no lady more equiped for the job than you. A motherhood without 'should'? Already we can breathe a little lighter. So let's stop 'shoulding' all over ourselves, shall we? | Image @avamariedoodles |

Out of all the wise words, revelations and kind things clients realize about themselves and their greatness, one of my favorite this year was: “Coffee is being kind to myself and then kind to my baby and the world” 🙌🏼. YES. This Mom knew that coffee for her was her thing, her daily self care. Inexpensive, available at home, and helped her into her daily power. What’s YOUR realization for yourself? What allows you to step into your power as a Mom, parent, person? #momboss   #empoweringmotherhood   #supportingmoms   #coffeeandmotherhood   #sandiegomoms   #momsofsandiego

We are so honored to present our last speaker - Dr. Kate Walsh. Kate’s credentials are impressive to say the least! She is currently an Assistant Professor at Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology at Yeshiva University, and she holds an adjunct appointment in the Department of Epidemiology at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University. She earned her PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of Nebraska and completed postdoctoral fellowships in Traumatic Stress at the Medical University of South Carolina and Substance Use Epidemiology at Columbia University. Her research mainly focuses on women's health with a particular emphasis on preventing gender-based violence. Specifically, she has studied how trauma and other stressors contribute to poor maternal mental and physical health, and how poor maternal health translates into negative effects in children via stress responsivity (e.g., cortisol) and inflammation. Both in her research and personal life, she is passionate about women's health and about empowering women in general, particularly during pregnancy/postpartum and motherhood. “I'm excited to talk about the dramatic brain changes that accompany pregnancy and motherhood and some of the amazing ways we as women adapt. I also think it's important to acknowledge some of the very real social and structural inequities that contribute to increased stress and ways to ask for and expect more out of our partners, our community, and our society in general.” When she is not doing research or teaching, Kate loves to spend time with her husband and two young kids. Her self-care routine includes reading, cooking and running. You don’t want to miss this empowering evening with three exceptional speakers who are so knowledgeable and passionate about elevating mothers’ health and happiness! 📣📣📣 Reserve your seat NOW!

I came across this on @fourthtrimestercollective a while back and it resonated with me so deeply, this vision for motherhood. The idea that instead of tearing one another down or shaming other mothers - we support them instead. Let us take the time to tell one another that we aren't failures, that we are good mothers and that we CAN do this. Tag a mother below to remind them you are in this together. 💙 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Imagine - If support in motherhood looked like this. FELT like this. Each rung of the ladder able to be surmounted, because another person is there, at each challenging moment, to offer support, encouragement, and wisdom. Banding together to help, to progress, to unite. All while gently repeating: 'you can, you can, you can' Can you imagine? We can.💜" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Quote from @fourthtrimestercollective Image from @monicagarwood

Today you didn’t get the laundry done. You had a grilled cheese for dinner, and you wore your sweat pants all day. You forgot to brush your teeth, your hair is in a bun, and your sink is full of dishes. ⠀ ⠀ You also probably changed a million diapers. Cleaned puke off your shirt for the 33626262 time. Took a million photos of your beautiful babe, had a nap with babe, or got outside for a walk. ⠀ ⠀ Be kind to yourself. You are doing an amazing job at the hardest job in the world. ⠀ You may not have as much time to do all the things you thought you would when you had a baby, but that doesn’t mean you are doing nothing. ⠀ ⠀ #postpartum   #sleepybaby   #sleepsupport   #toddlersleep   #babysleep   #momstrong   #parentingstrong   #glasshalffull   #sleepandwellbeingspecialist   #sleep   #moms   #dads   #supportingmoms   #supportingfamalies   #family   #bekindtoyourself  

For her it feels like this - Skin that's too tight, like it's one size too small to comfortably accommodate her body. Eyes that burn, exhausted from constantly scanning the room. For threats. Hidden dangers. A way to escape. Noisy. She hears everything a few seconds behind, as it competes with her interior monologue of worry, scenarios, and unfavorable motherhood reviews. Deep, debilitating exhaustion. She's constantly 'on', always thinking, and tries to keep her worry at bay with busy work. She feels everything. And nothing. Always. And it's draining. Her anxiety is a really skilled liar. And it's got her in a tight hold. And she'll need to face it, head on, in order to make her way back. Back to life without the unwelcomed deceiver. But she will. She will win the battle. There WILL be a new chapter. And in this one, there will be no monster. How do we know? We know because we lived it. We faced it. We slayed it. We made it. And you can too.💜 . . . | Image @this_mama_doodles | #worldsmentalhealthday

Our next speaker is truly inspiring! Rene Gonzalez is a nutrition specialist and the founder of Bambino Chef, a culinary school for children in Jersey City. Rene has created a program for budding young chefs that incorporates healthy and creative recipes inspired by her world travels. She develops most of the recipes in her kitchen and focuses on dishes that will expand a child’s palate, spark curiosity in trying new foods, sharpen kitchen skills, and build confidence. Rene also enjoys working with young athletes as a youth nutrition specialist. Being a mother herself, Rene's passion for healthy living naturally transcends to mothers who all too often put their own wellbeing on the backburner. She is a strong proponent of the correlation between gut and brain health and loves to teach moms how they can fuel themselves, and their families, with foods that heal the gut and nourishes the brain. 🧠 Renee believes that “Food is medicine, nature’s medicine. I believe in the healing power of food especially when it comes to feeding the brain“. Knowing first-hand how overwhelming motherhood can be - Renee can’t wait to share ways that we can enhance our brain functions by incorporating more plant based nutrients in our food. And the best part according to Renee is “it is accessible and not too complicated”. In addition, as part of her mission to give back to community, she has created a free program for local schools "Healthy Bambino" where she hosts workshops for children about importance of healthy eating and cooking. Rene is also trained in working with food allergies and occasionally hosts sessions for families providing tips and recipes for cooking. We are so excited and looking forward to learning more from this extraordinary Chef! 📣 Remember to book your seat!!! Tickets in BIO! 🎟🎟🎟

One of my absolute fave things I’ve ditched and switched is my toothpaste! Switching to Thieves was and still is the best decision I made in my hygiene routine. Y’all. My teeth have NEVER felt so clean. And adding a drop of Orange EO before brushing is just upping the whitening game 😌 And the fact that there isn’t any of the “bad stuff” in the ingredients is my favorite part 🥳 Maybe we just didn’t realize that companies were sneaking these awful ingredients into our products. Maybe we just don’t care. But you should care for so many reasons. Toxic junk like Triclosan, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, artificial flavorings, dyes, and so many others can have long term effects on our bodies. Effects we don’t even realize are building up over time until we suddenly develop chronic headaches/fatigue/acne, immune issues, respiratory issues, chemical sensitivities, hormonal issues, infertility, or the worst of them - cancer. Even the cleaners we use on our floors soak through the bottoms of our feet, and our babies feet. And even scarier - it is completely legal for these companies to put these chemicals in our products (through government loopholes and “trade secrets”). Do better so you can feel better! This was just a small start for us - toothpaste. Not huge, but definitely important, because anything that goes into our mouths fast tracks it’s way into our bloodstream since our mouths are highly absorbent. There are always better options out there, and Young Living’s will always be the best one IMO 💁🏼‍♀️ You just can’t beat their quality and purity — knowing exactly where my batch of toothpaste came from and how it was tested — that’s incredible and highly respectable in my book. Forever grateful for these oils and products. ♥️ . . .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #younglivingessentialoils   #yleo   #younglivingoils   #holistic   #crunchymama   #cleanliving   #immunesupport   #emotionalsupport   #oilymama   #plantbased   #hippiemama   #essentialoilsrock   #momlife   #parentingwithoils   #girlmom   #toddlermom   #supportingmoms   #selfhelp   #sleepsupport   #cultivatingmotherhood   #intentionalliving   #wellnessjourney   #guthealth   #emotionalwellness   #healthbenefits   #plantbased   #essentialoilinfused   #thieves  

Let us not forget...we exist too. Our needs exist. Our dreams exist. Our passions exist. Our boundaries exist. And all are worthy. Yes, JUST as worthy of the same attention and nurturing as that we give to the people around us. The selflessness that we are innately called to offer in early parenthood has a way of making the parts of ourselves that are 'just for us' feel small, selfish, or unimportant. So much so that we might accidentally squeeze ourselves out of the equation altogether. And when we finally have a moment to pick our heads up from the thick of it all - we notice. We notice that we have forgotten what it is like to just BE, in our own right. And it can feel a bit like freefall. So though you are a mother, and a damn good one at that, you are also a someone. Complete. Whole. All on your very own. Someone who is interesting. Someone who has goals. Someone who has stories to tell. And vision. And passion. And fire. So even if you temporarily forget WHO you are, never forget that you are someone, too.💜 . . . | Image @the.feminist.foodie |

My least favorite word. . . . . Bills!!!💵💵💵💵💵 Unfortunately, just part of everyone's life. We have been off and on a debt free journey for the past umpteen years. 🚑⛽🚗Sh*t happens urgent care visits, emergency dentist, unexpected break downs. I am helping my family in all ways possible! Working my little side hustle working at produce stand, cleaning houses. Anything I can to make sure I can continue to stay home meet ends meet and do all the fun stuff. Let's face it we picked the most expensive hobbies. Bikes and horses 🙄🤣😋 I workout anyways. I get discounts on the products I used anyways so coaching for me was a no brainer! But... what I didnt expect was to cut the cost of some of the things I was already buying. I am building a team and part of a group of ladies that are friends now. It was a win win for me. It can be a win win for you too! #wahm   #fitnmomjourney   #myownboss   #sidehustle   #debtfreeroadisabumpyaf   #billssuck   #shopsmall   #supportingmoms  

Cherry Blossoms and McDonald’s Strawberry sundaes!! I was obsessed! This picture was taken 2 months before her delivery. I was 7 months pregnant, 3rd trimester. Pregnancy anxiety: I worried about EVERYTHING! Was she ok, was she growing did she have ten fingers and ten toes. Would I be able to deliver her safely. What if I died during Iabor? I tried to predict my due date and imagined my delivery. I lived in a constant state of anxiety, nervousness and morning sickness! But I LOVED it! Because I was an older 1st time Mom (34) I appreciated every minute of this blessing! I loved my belly and lived for the moments when I felt her move. She was due on June 24th but following one of my weekly sonogram visits, it was discovered that my amniotic fluid was low. I was walked over to labor and delivery and instructed to call my husband. I was prepared for labor and told that I would be induced. The excitement and anticipation kept me calm. I was hungry and unprepared. I had nothing with me, the hospital bag was a pending project as she wasn’t due for another week. I was in active labor for hours before my doctor decided that a C-section was necessary. The babies heart beat was dropping so I was rushed into the operating room. She arrived at 4:24am, the most perfect little person I’d ever held. Love personified. I prayed for her, I wished for her I created her many times in my thoughts and dreams and there she was pure perfection!! Motherhood is one of the most amazing journeys women are privileged to experience. It is a roller coaster ride of emotional highs and lows an experience that changed me forever! - @oros718 #WCW   #pregnancyjourney   #pregnantwithmyfirst   #pregnantwithpurpose   #pregnantwithpossibilities   #supermoms   #workingmoms   #newmoms   #supportingmoms   #momsofinstagram   #wcw😍😍😍😍😍  

Okay so I am going to ask the hard-hitting questions tonight... . Who has had a great week? Who has had a crap week? Who has bought their bottle of @oysterbaywines Sav Blanc already? And who has already drunk it 🤷🏽‍♀️🥂 . . See in 2 sleeps ladies. Erinn x

𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘢 𝘮𝘰𝘴𝘢𝘪𝘤 𝘧𝘳𝘢𝘨𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘦𝘵𝘦 -k.tolnoe When she looks at her baby, she's reminded of the miracle that her body just created. In this moment, she feels power and pride. But when she looks in the mirror, she finds disappointment. In this same, miraculous body. A body that she praised for the past nine months. One that she treated like a temple. One that felt so capable. Now, feels so broken. When she looks in the mirror, she is confused by the betrayal she feels from this body. Because there is gratitude. So much gratitude. For this vessel that grew and birthed. But there is sadness. For the way it feels now, so very different than the version before. And in this great divide between the splendor of what her body has done, and the brokenness of what it has left her with, she feels lost. Between gratefulness and frustration. Pride and shame. Amazement and grief. She doesn't quite know how to heal these deep wounds. The ones no one can see. So she starts here; with an honest conversation between herself and her reflection: 'I see you. I am thankful for you. For the way you've performed a miracle. But what I have now is not enough. And I'm not ready yet - I am not quite ready to love you. I know we will get there. We have so much more to do together. And we deserve that. So I'll meet you where you are. And we'll work through this together. To find a way back. Please be patient with me, too. With all of my feelings. As we walk this journey of our healing. Towards feeling at home, together again. And while we're closing this great divide - I'll fill the space with all of the pieces of our story. It will be so beautiful, in the end. The mosiac of our mothering.💜' . . . Deep love for all the mothers who are healing their bodies and the emotional wounds along side them after birth. We see you. | Image @amandaoleander |

Okay so 3 things:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. I smell like a baked good today. Literally, lol.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. Pumpkin and spice are clearly a power couple.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. Coffee and Nutmeg EO go well together but Nutmeg on it's own? PowerHOUSE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I smell like Nutmeg today because fatigue. Anyone else struggle? 🙋‍♀️ Nutmeg is an adrenal powerhouse and if you aren't familiar with what your adrenal glands do -- they basically produce hormones that are vital to your life, like cortisol. When you hear cortisol, you think stress, and the "flight or fight" response, but really it's much more than just that. Cortisol is responsible for turning your fats, carbohydrates, and proteins into energy! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Relying on coffee alone isn't doing it for me. So today, I smell like a baked good. Nutmeg on my vitaflex points on my hands, on my feet, directly over my adrenals, and in a capsule (because that white label means it can be taken internally). Ready to take on the day 🤩 PS it’s this months promo so Young Living is giving it away for freeee ☺️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #younglivingessentialoils   #yleo   #younglivingoils   #holistic   #crunchymama   #cleanliving   #immunesupport   #emotionalsupport   #oilymama   #plantbased   #hippiemama   #essentialoilsrock   #momlife   #parentingwithoils   #girlmom   #toddlermom   #supportingmoms   #selfhelp   #sleepsupport   #cultivatingmotherhood   #intentionalliving   #wellnessjourney   #guthealth   #emotionalwellness   #healthbenefits   #fall   #pumpkinspice   #energyboost   #naturalenergy   #nutmegessentialoil

This is my oldest son's name tag he made for his desk at school. I snapped a picture of it when my husband and I were in his classroom for curriculum night a few weeks ago. He wrote his name in the middle and decorated it with drawings of all his favorite things. Yes, including sleeping...this kid loves to sleep, but don't get jealous my other kids aren't such big fans.⁠ ⁠ My eyes teared up when I saw he'd written "mom" on there. First I was touched by the innocence. He seems so big to me now, but he's not too big to still announce his love for his mom proudly.⁠ ⁠ Then there was a wave of another weird mix of emotions. It was a combination of relief and sadness. Relief that I must be doing something right to earn a spot on his list of favorites. I mean come on, I'm right up there with Nike 😆 But seriously. All of those moments of doubt and judgement. All of the guilt when I drop him off at before school care so I can get to my office to see an early client. All of those nights tossing and turning in bed replaying the worst moments of our day and what I wish I'd done differently. THEY DON'T MATTER. He sees right past them. And that's where the sadness comes in. So many wasted hours, so much unnecessary beating myself up, for something that DOESN'T MATTER.⁠ ⁠ Our kids love us unconditionally. We can't abuse that love through willful neglect or mistreatment, but we sure can cut ourselves a break and stop chasing perfection. Because they don't see our mistakes and shortcomings. They just know that when they're with us they feel safe. When we hug them they feel loved. And that's all they need.⁠ ⁠ #supportingmoms⁠   #yougotthismama⁠   #momlifeunfiltered⁠   #recoveringperfectionist⁠   #therealinstamoms⁠   #mommingainteasy⁠   #messy_motherhood⁠   #modernmama⁠   #joyfulmama⁠   #motherhoodjourney⁠   #strongasamother⁠   #realmomlife⁠   #lifeasmama⁠   #realmotherhood⁠   #momtruth⁠   #myhonestmotherhood⁠   #motherhoodunited⁠   #mymotherhood⁠   #mamahood⁠   #mymamahood⁠   #honestlymothering⁠   #motherhoodintheraw⁠   #mommyproblems⁠   #thisismotherhood⁠   #motherhoodinspired⁠   #mynameismama⁠   #joyfulmamas⁠   #honestmotherhood⁠   #themotherload⁠   #stressedmom⁠  

Spooky vibes in the Feasel house today 👻 Diffusing an Apple Pie blend today and creating spaces in my home that make me feel warm and cozy and loved 🥰 I think being intentional with the things you’re wanting in life is so important, no matter how small those things are. I’ve always desired comfort, especially internally, and I lived a good majority of my life in complete discomfort. So nurturing that part of me that desires comfort is important, even if that means it’s something as simple as filling my diffuser with a fall scent and decorating spaces in my home with my favorite seasonal decor 🎃 Tell me something simple that comforts you! . . . #younglivingessentialoils   #yleo   #younglivingoils   #holistic   #crunchymama   #cleanliving   #immunesupport   #emotionalsupport   #oilymama   #plantbased   #hippiemama   #toxinfree   #essentialoilsrock   #momlife   #parentingwithoils   #girlmom   #toddlermom   #supportingmoms   #selfhelp   #sleepsupport   #cultivatingmotherhood   #intentionalliving   #wellnessjourney   #guthealth   #emotionalwellness   #healthbenefits   #healing   #fall   #innerchild   #littlesafespace
