Leading up to my first birth, I had obstetric care until I was 34 weeks. My obstetrician told me I would be induced two weeks early, for no reason other than he felt it was best, so I transferred care to a group of midwives. Overnight, it seemed, I woke to a new birth paradigm. In this new landscape I was part of a team of women who took notice of my diet and my mindset, and opened my awareness of informed consent. The weeks passed, and I felt carried by these women as I waited for the birth.

How Positive Thinking Builds Your Skills, Boosts Your Health, and Improves Your Work

This article is a little long but I think it’s fantastic! We could all use some help in creating habits of a Positive Mindset.

Building Immune Systems for Busy People (AKA you!)

I don’t know why this is a consistent issue with busy adults but I know I am totally guilty of this over and over again…...neglecting myself while caring for all the people!

We spend so much time (especially as moms) pouring into the people we love yet we don’t spend time making sure we are in the best position to do that. If one more person tells me I need to put my own oxygen mask on before putting anyone else’s on my head will explode!

It’s not that I don’t believe this is true. It’s that I am busy and so it’s difficult to add more things to my schedule. Sometimes there is so much advice out there with a long list of things to do that I just dismiss it all because it seems too many things to incorporate. Even though there may be a few things I know I should do, I feel like a failure, so I don’t do anything. Please tell me I am not alone.
