We all love being a mom, before we talk about mom life, share with us who you are. We want to know your story- what do you love to do? what are you passionate about?
I am an action taking, lipstick addicted, oracle obsessed podcaster. I love 80s movies and reading non- ﬁction. I want to change the narrative for women around the world, but more importantly for my daughter, so they can begin giving themselves permission to live a passion-ﬁlled life.
Mom is a title we are all proud of, tell us your birth story!
So, with my ﬁrst child, I went to the hospital and got sent home with the classic story, that I had so much time because it is the ﬁrst one. So, when I showed back up a couple of hours later I was still only one centimeter but my water had broke. My body kept telling me it was time, but no one would believe me.
Things moved super quickly, and my son was born within 2 hours and I delivered him without any medicine because it was too quick for the epidural. My body went from 0-10 in those two hours and it was gut-wrenching.
So, my second child blessed me with a scheduled induction, and I made sure to get medicine that time. 🙂
What advice do you have for first time moms?
What has this quarantine taught you?
What haven’t I learned in quarantine is the question. I learned
that I like to plan and know what comes next and it has been very hard for me to adjust. My biggest lesson is I can have a life full of ﬂow and ease, and now I am really beginning to enjoy it.
I will always cherish this extra time with my kids even though some days I regret having an open format home. 🙂
