Dec 8, 2019

I still can’t believe you get TWELVE oils in the Starter Kit now. TWO of them being a MAJOR upgrade. Like, BIG TIME V.I.O’s (very important oils). No but really, these oils are on my top 10 list of favorite essential oils from Young Living and I’m so excited (and a little jealous) you get them in the Starter Kit. _ VALOR— I love applying this one directly to my wrist, neck and over my heart. I also add Valor to several different rollers to help bring a sense of peace when I’m feeling overwhelmed or when I need a confidence boost. One of our favorite rollers include Valor, Frankincense, Bergamot and Stress Away. I also love adding Valor and Stress Away to our Bath and Shower Gel Base. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Valor— Blue Tansy, Frankincense, Geranium, Black Spruce and Camphor. _⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PEACE & CALMING— is one I diffuse quite often when Jolie is needing some, you guessed it— PEACE & CALMING. It helps uplift her spirits and has such a relaxing scent. Our favorite roller and diffuser blend includes Peace & Calming, Orange (or Tangerine) and Stress Away. Try it! You’ll love it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Peace & Calming— Blue Tansy, Patchouli, Tangerine, Ylang Ylang and Orange. _ CHECK OUT MY HI-LIGHTS TO LEARN MORE ABOUT EACH OIL.

Dec 8, 2019

I’m always looking for calming oils for times when I need more support. Ive gotten A LOT of release from tapping energy releasing but there are still times I feel anxious. I started wearing rollerball necklaces around my neck and they’ve been LIFE SAVERS. . . Even after 6 years I’m still learning about all the oils. Angelica is on my list next. I already have White Angelica!! Angelica vs. White Angelica There is more to these two oils than just their names. They are vastly different but like all essential oils there are always similarities. When you see a recipe call for one of these oils, you won’t want to use the other as a substitute if you are out because they don’t work the same. Here’s a break down of some of their differences. • Angelica is a single species essential oil from the roots of Apiaceae family. • White Angelica is a blend of Melissa, Northern Lights Black Spruce, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Myrrh, Hyssop, Rose, Geranium, Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, and Rosewood with a small amount of Sweet Almond Oil. (Note: If you have a new Reformulated bottle they swapped Rosewood for Coriander and Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood for Sacred Sandalwood). • There is no Angelica in White Angelica. • Angelica is very high in cleansing Monoterpenes. • White Angelica is high in calming Sesquiterpenes. • Both are used for energy balance but from different ends of the spectrum. • White Angelica is to help guard against other people’s negative energy. • Angelica is to help release your own negative energy. I hope this has healed clear up the confusion a bit! #themoreyouknow #essentialoileducation #instagood #picoftheday #love #followme #essentialoils #healthylifestyle #weekend #youngliving #free #entrepreneur #smallbusiness #success #anxietyrelief #nontoxic  #healthyliving  #healthyfamily #healthyhome  #chemicalfreehome #hippyvibes  #holistic  #oilylife #oilsformoms   #oilvibes  #natural #crunchy  #crunchymama  #clicklinkinbio

Okay, so here’s the deal on essential oils.👇🏼Do they actually work!? - Let me tell you a little about cedarwood. Here are the top properties for this beloved oil: 𝑎𝑛𝑡𝑖-𝑖𝑛𝑓𝑙𝑎𝑚𝑚𝑎𝑡𝑜𝑟𝑦, 𝑑𝑖𝑢𝑟𝑒𝑡𝑖𝑐, 𝑎𝑠𝑡𝑟𝑖𝑛𝑔𝑒𝑛𝑡, 𝑎𝑛𝑡𝑖𝑠𝑒𝑝𝑡𝑖𝑐, 𝑖𝑛𝑠𝑒𝑐𝑡𝑖𝑐𝑖𝑑𝑎𝑙, & 𝑠𝑒𝑑𝑎𝑡𝑖𝑣𝑒. For most, diffusing this with lavender + frankincense is the perfect blend for a great nights sleep because of the sedative property. For me? I love using this in my hair since I’m going through all the postpartum hair loss. Give me all the hair support cause this mama needs it 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 - We as humans are each created differently. If one oil works wonders for one person, it may not be magical for another. The best part? Soooooo many oils have multiple properties. They do work, you just need to find which work best for you ♥️

This is one-half of the reasons for the research I do. (She had a sucker right before this picture 😂) She deserves the best, right? ALL of our kids do. She deserves not to have aborted fetal DNA and animal DNA injected, right? You don’t have to be pro-life to see a clear problem with injecting another human’s DNA into a body with literally ZERO studies to show how it will impact the body of the receiver. It’s right there on the insert. Hidden in plain sight. You know when you sign the T&C on a contract and it has a ton of tiny print that they know you aren’t going to read? That’s what a va((ine insert is like. They don’t expect you to read it. Want to take a look at one? I would be HAPPY to send it to you. *I’m not talking about the info sheets they hand you at the well checks. I always thought I was doing what was best because I was told that doctors KNOW what’s best. It’s ok to go back on what you originally thought. Question everything. There is NO profit in healthy people. .

I did something fun last week. Instead of putting oils away after diffusing them, I left the all out so I could see everything we had used in a week.

Happy Sunday, friends! I want to thank all of you who purchased or shared about my Black Friday sale. It truly is deeply appreciated and it means the world to me! . This is such a crazy time of year but I've been trying my best to keep adding new items to the shop on top of the craziness that is the holiday season! I just added a few new pacifer clips this morning along with this beautiful fawn floral teether. I'll be posting about them in my stories shortly!

Dec 8, 2019

I feel like everyone I know is sick right now. 😫⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Sometimes my friends laugh when I (sometimes literally) shove oils down their throat or force them to let me rub them down with Raven (a YL blend that smells like but in my experience is much more effective than Vick’s and comes in the Starter Kit). I can’t help it, I can be a bit pushy when I KNOW something will help people I love. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ But for all the skeptics out there who love posting memes and saying “eSsEnTiaL OiLs DoN’t WoRk....”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ From a peer-reviewed study: ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ “Out of 21 essential oils tested, 19 showed antibacterial activity against one or more bacteria. Cinnamon oil, lime oil, geranium oil, rosemary oil, orange oil, lemon oil and clove oil showed maximum activity against all the bacterial species tested.” ‼️‼️‼️⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1693916/⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ One of the main ingredients in Thieves is cinnamon oil and virtually no bacteria can survive it. 🦠🦠🦠⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ This, Raven, AND lemon all come in the Starter Kit, so you will be fully armed with allll the immune support to use topically, internally, and aromatically by diffusing; which brings me to my last point:⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Studies also show that viral infections such as influenza are directly influenced by the quality of an environment’s air, which includes relative humidity levels and temperatures. If relative humidity levels are low – less than 40% RH – the space will effectively become a breeding ground for bacteria and viral infection potentialities.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The desert mist diffuser doubles as a humidifier! ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Don’t knock it ‘til you try it!

Guess who has his first tooth popping through? ⁣ ⁣ The other night E had a horrible night going to sleep, which usually doesn’t happen. He was laying next to me just crying for an hour and I couldn’t comfort him. ⁣ ⁣ The next day I felt a tooth under his gums! I felt so bad, the poor little guy was in pain the night before and I didn’t know so I couldn’t help him. ⁣ ⁣ I’m so thankful I can help soothe him through this now that I know what’s going on! I’ve been using our teething roller on his jawline before all naps and bedtime and he’s been having a much easier time going to sleep. The roller has lavender, copaiba, and coconut oil in it, so the lavender is an extra bonus for making him sleepy!

Dec 8, 2019

WE ALL DESERVE BETTER. ICYMI: GreggRenfrew was on Capitol Hill this past week, advocating for greater health protective laws. Her message was simple - it’s time for federal lawmakers to put in place common sense regulations to protect the health of Americans for generations to come. Decades of studies indicate that serious health issues (including but not limited to asthma, cancer, and infertility) are on the rise and are due in some part to our ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals—whether it's in the shower, on our commute, while we eat lunch at a local restaurant, or when we clean our kitchens at home. There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. Many don't have any safety data. This is particularly true of those used in the skin care and beauty industry. What's worse is that the Food and Drug Administration (the agency that regulates cosmetics in the United States) does not have the authority to remove harmful ingredients from the products we put on our bodies and on our kids' bodies every single day, day after day. This post may not be trendy, perfectly staged, or “Instagram-worthy”, but it’s real and it’s important. The truth is simple, beauty should be good for you and you shouldn’t have to worry about the ingredients in the products you use everyday. Drop a 👊 if you agree!

Did you know that Johnson & Johnson baby lotion scores an 8 on the Think Dirty app? (See 2nd pic for proof and to see why.) An 8! A product for your baby! 😫 Even the fragrance free version still scores a 5. I wouldn’t use that on myself, much less my baby! . There are better, safer options.

Dec 8, 2019

Sinus. Pressure. Relief. . . . This morning I woke up with intense sinus pressure. You know the type... feels like your eye is going to explode and it won’t stop watering. Thank goodness for my oils!! I put 2 drops each of oregano, lemon, tea tree, and peppermint in hot water then leaned over and inhaled deeply. I put a towel over my head to help hold the steam close to my face, but you don’t have to do that. . . . These oils are powerful and worked quickly! The pressure is gone and my eye is no longer watering. Oregano is great for fighting bacterial and viral infections, lemon helps break up thick mucus which relieves congestion, melaleuca (tee tree) is also great for fighting bacterial and viral infections, and peppermint helps with headaches/sinusitis. These oils do so much more than what I listed. Want to learn more about how you can drop the OTC cold meds and start living more naturally? Message me and let’s figure out what oils would be beneficial for you and your family!! . . . #doterralove #essentialoilsrock #essentialoilmom #doterramom #essentialoils #boymom #fitmom #naturalhealing #inspireothers #wellness #holistichealth #wellbeing #healthykids #healthyfamilies #behappy #crunchymama #calmmama #joyfulmamas #sleepytime #doterralife #oilylife #ihaveanoilforthat #theresanoilforthat #doterrateachers #sinusinfection #doterraessentialoils

Dec 8, 2019

Teething babies 🦷 It's the worst seeing our lil ones in pain. 😥As a parent I get asked all the time what I do to help my lil one naturally with teething. I've never been one to give tylenol or advil to my kids, I've always turned to essential oils and homeopathics My blend has changed over the years when it comes to my teething kids, and this one so far has been what I found works the best for my lil guy. 2💧 drops of each oil in a 10ml roller bottle and topped off with fractionated coconut oil. Applied to the jawline and behind the ears. *For really bad pain you can apply 1💧copaiba and clove (heavy diluted as clove is a hot oil ) onto the gum or tooth. Always try this on yourself 1st to make sure it's not too hot for your lil one. I pour the fractionated coconut oil into my clean hand and add a drop of one or both oils mix with my finger tip & test it I'm my mouth 1st. Works great for bigger kids and adults too with any kind of teeth pain #onlydoterraoils How do you care for lil ones teething pain? Message me to make you up a bottle of my tiny teeth blend. earthymamawellness

Dec 8, 2019

Last night it was after 10pm and my littlest was STILL up. Extremely over tired and the babe that never melts-down, hit his breaking point and entered melt-down city. He was acting so big in his little four year old body. I was experiencing my baby enter the next stage - literally watching it. He knows the first thing we do when we feel like we are going to flip out - we use our oils. He was refusing (which means he needed them more than ever.) I also know that this is when he usually just needs to feel my love and arms around him. Hugs are necessary in these trying moments. I was finally able to get Serenity restful blend and Adaptiv calming blend on him (after chasing him around the house). When we got to the top of the stairs, he said, “Mom, I just need a hug” and I said, “I know you do honey.” We went into his room and with tears in his eyes, he asked if I could rock him like a baby. We haven’t done this in long, long time (so long that I was considering taking the rocker out of his room which pained me to even think of)…and I pulled his little blanket on him (which he asked if it was his baby blanket) and I said, “sometimes we just need a hug and oils.” He replied, “you are right mom” and within minutes he was sound asleep. In those couple of minutes while rocking him, I had little flashbacks of each of my children in my arms - rocking them to sleep and I started to tear up. My babies are growing. Sometimes all you need are hugs and oils.

Dec 8, 2019

I really love this picture 🎄 It’s been a while since we got a good one of the 4 of us & it came out “Picture perfect “ • • Perfect perfect haha .. I like the real honest insta pages I can relate to & vibe with so no sugar coating here . Before we took this pic I wanted to go home without a tree 🙈 just telling the truth ! • • One of the biggest things I’ve learned the last few years is to always put your self in other peoples shoes . Something I couldn’t wrap my head around until I became a mom than a stay at home mom , a single mom , a working full time mom , than a mom of a child powering through some extremely high emotion bringing on many challenges. (main reason i brought oils into our life 🙌🏼) • • I know there are many phases & seasons of parenting but we have been stuck in this one for a few years now & it’s been the biggest battle I’ve ever had to fight . I’m not asking for advice bc we are getting help from so many individuals who are all rooting for my little guy along with the best family and friends ever & my angel fiancé ‘ . Without a good support team I wouldn’t have made it this far . My kids are so loved it’s unbelievable ! • • Parenting is the easiest thing in the world to have an opinion about but the hardest thing in the world to do . So many ups and downs . Good days , bad days , ok days , really good days than really bad weeks . It’s a serious roller coaster & we are holding on super tight over here . Don’t be embarrassed or ashamed-if you are powering thought a tough time right now , God matched you with your little one bc you two were meant to be together ✨ 💓 #Yougotthis • • . In the end it’s the love you give each other on the bad days that matters the most ♥️ • • PS ... A good cry is ok ..release those emotions oil up and keep going 🤣

Dec 8, 2019

Day 3 of 12 days of Christmas - oil addition! ✨ Raven ✨ A blend of peppermint, eucalyptus radiata, ravintsara, wintergreen, and lemon. Raven is a great respiratory support oil. I have used it many times over the past couple months while we have been sick with stuffy noses and chest congestion to help open up our airways by either diffusing it periodically throughout the day/night or by making DIY chest rub(good bye Vick’s) and applying to the chest and neck before bed. This stuff worked wonders for me! ** when using with kids under age 6 use with caution, because of the wintergreen oil. Dilution is key! **

In another life it was my job to teach people how to cook. My oldest client was 93 and my youngest was just 4. This experience solidified something for me - the more involved in food prep a person is, the more likely they’ll be to eat it. Be they old or be they young. If you’ve been involved, listened to, made decisions about and literally had your hands in it, the food tastes better. Knowing this, I’ve had my boys involved in the following ways from day 1. You might like to pick one or two ways to get your kids into it too. Note: the last 2 points don’t have to happen yet. Start where you’re comfortable and build up to these when you’re calm and confident AND your child is at the stage where they will listen and take instruction. It’s my kitchen rule that what I say goes. If they don’t listen they don’t get to be in there. - They are taught to pick the fruit and veg at the market/shops. Yep, I’ll even hold mangoes and tomatoes up to my 4month old’s nose to teach him how to pick a good one! - We look through cookbooks and choose meals to cook and then write a shopping list. - We put away the groceries together. Explaining as we go why some foods go in the freezer/fridge/pantry. - We water and take care of our balcony herb garden. - I give Ashton a tub of water and he washes the veggies before we use them. - Pressing the buttons on the blender/food processor - Ripping lettuce and herbs or shelling peas. - Ashton loves stirring whatever we’ve got on the stove. Keep handles faced to the back, heat on a setting you can comfortably manage and make sure skin is covered from any accidental hot splashes, I have some long sleeved tops that we use for this. Learning what flames mean (hot hot don’t touch) and what to do if they get a burn (run under cold water and some lavender or aloe vera) is important here. -Ashton (2y4m) is learning to peel and chop. I believe that knowledge is power so learning to do these things safely from the beginning is more empowering than it is dangerous. Only attempt it if you can be present 100%, take it slow, and make sure the set up is ideal: Bench is an appropriate height, board on a damp cloth and small hand sized knife.

Slow down you two..... ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ There are so many batshit crazy things about being a parent and one that definitely wasn’t in the brochure is the way you don’t actually parent one person, you parent many, many different people who are all your child. ⁣ ⁣ There’s the newborn, the baby, the toddler, the pre-schooler, the primary aged kid, the pre-teen, the adolescent, the full-blown teen, the young adult and then the adult. They all answer to the same name. They all call you Mum. And you never ever notice the inflection point where one of those people turns into the next.⁣ ⁣ You never get to properly say goodbye to all the little people who grow up because you don’t notice the growing, the changing. Except when Facebook sends you those bloody memory reminders that invariably make me cry because it’s like showing me the face of someone I can never see again. Not in that way. Not at that age.⁣ ⁣ words by Mia Freedman miafreedman

Dec 8, 2019

Can I be a bit real? The busy-ness/tiredness of work and pregnancy has had me at a point for a while where I was pretty lazy with natural and less-waste living. Sure, I used a bunch of my oils and oily products (thank goodness for routines, hey?), but I don’t remember the last time I really felt inspired to try something new or look up interesting ways to use them. I have been lazy with food - never washing fresh produce, or slacking off with organic and just settling for ‘good enough’. Snacks have been carbs and cheese (anyone else’s guilty pleasure?) and I haven’t felt that conviction to do better, even though I know better. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today though I got sucked into the instagram vortex in the best way. I went down a rabbit hole of healthy living accounts - tox-free, guilt free, just-do-what-you-can type accounts that leave you feeling like you can start making some little steps that will help create bigger changes down the track. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So here I am, adding some Thieves veggie soak and Ningxia to my ER, looking at some healthier snack options and finding a list of my least used oils to get researching on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Keen? What are one or two changes you can make this week to help you get started? Oily or otherwise 🧡 let’s get inspired x #ritualessentials

Dec 8, 2019

You know I was thinking this morning, heading out to church, that 5 years ago I would’ve left the house laden with chemicals. I would’ve showered with chemical body wash, washed my hair with chemicals, moisturised with chemicals, no doubt sprayed a little chemical hair spray on the fly aways, put on chemical deodorant (oh don’t even get me started on the dangers of this so close to breast tissue), applied chemical make up, brushed my teeth with chemicals, and then sprayed a nice concoction of chemical perfume all over me, before I finished the routine with a nice smattering of chemical lip gloss on my lips. And I wouldn’t have even given it a second thought. All those carcinogens and hormone disrupters wreaking havoc on my endocrine system. No wonder I had hormone issues! But this morning, as I realised not one chemical got absorbed into my body today, I was beyond grateful that my daughters will grow up knowing and using a better way. I didn’t have to compromise anything this morning- I still got to use shower gel, wash my hair, use a DIY hair spray (which is seriously amazing), wear make up, moisturise, clean my teeth and wear deodorant ha, and even used my own perfume I made with essential oils which smells amaze 😍 I love that my daughters will always know there’s a better and safer way. I also love that I can kiss the heck out of their little faces without the worry of what I’m transferring to their precious skin. Beyond. Grateful. ❤️ . Double tap if you’re grateful too!

Helping out in the kitchen is a great way to lay the foundations for healthy eating habits. 🍏 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Children are often more willing to eat or try foods that they have helped to prepare. Although it may take a little extra time and preparation to involve them in the cooking process, it will be well worth the effort later on. 😉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What have you and your child cooked together? 🥘

DE Tweede ADVENT - is die van de planten en de bomen. De altijd groene naaldbomen reiken hoog naar de zon, zelfs in de donkerste dagen. We brengen haar binnen, eren haar met stralend licht en als Driekoningen voorbij is, gaat ze de houtstapel op om te dienen als brandstof. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pluk je een bloem, vraag haar dan eerst of het mag. Praat jij wel eens met je planten? Zat jij onder een schaduwgevende boom deze zomer? Alle groentes die je eet, gaat dat met respect voor het wezen? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ De cyclus van het leven is bij planten en bloemen misschien wel het makkelijkst waarneembaar. Diep onder de grond ontkiemd een zaadje tot een scheut (Imbolc), steekt haar kopje boven de aarde (Ostara), maakt blad aan en sterkt haar wortels en vormt een knop die zich opent naar de zon (Beltane), de bloemen en bijen zoemen om haar heen en vliegen van hart naar hart (Midzomer) en daarna stopt de groei. Sterk en statig als ze is, laat ze op een gegeven moment haar bladeren hangen (Lughnasadh) en neemt de wind haar zaden mee (Mabon) waardoor er minder energie nodig is, de plant zich terugtrekt (Samhain) en ogenschijnlijk dood lijkt (Yule), maar in wezen niets anders doet dan het leven te regenereren. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Want het lijkt doods. Donker. Stil. Rot. Maar die trilling, dat ene moment. Waarop het zaadje genoeg vocht, warmte, duisternis, rust gekregen heeft. Ontstaat wonderbaarlijk opnieuw het leven. Een nieuwe cyclus. Een nieuwe cirkel.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Daarom hebben we een kerstboom in huis. Om ons te herinneren aan die cyclus van het leven. Dat het almaar doorgaat en niets ooit stopt. Ja, wel... de dood is natuurlijk een eind van een tijd. Dat weten wij hier thuis als geen ander, maar tegelijkertijd ook meteen een nieuw begin.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Heb je het gered met lezen tot aan hier? Dan heb jij je 20% kortingscode op alle wollen truien, broekjes, wolzijden hemden, rompers, mutsen, wanten, jassen van Popolini en Iobio verdiend.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Vul ADVENT2 in in de checkout om je korting te claimen.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ https://www.littleshoparoundthecorner.nl/

This simple blend of oils have changed my life. This might sound shallow but I was really in the dumps when I started losing my hair after my pregnancy. #postpartumhairloss is no joke.

I am going to do an IGTV video explaining exactly what I did to get my thick beautiful hair back! I want to share my secrets with all of you mamas out there that are struggling with this #postpartum crap!

‘Tis the season for alllll the extra boxes and fort building. 📦 I’m trying to take extra time to be intentional, let them help me, create memories and let life happen naturally all around me. Our house is not tidy, the kids don’t look put together often, but we love hard and have fun. I think that’s what matters most.

Dec 8, 2019

No one will be butt hurt with this gift! . I've been talking with people and learning that giving the gift of health can sometimes be misconstrued as an insult. That giving someone workout equipment or a gym membership so they can care for their bodies is somehow "wrong". The notion is that it can make the gift receiver feel like they need to change, as in, be fitter or sexier. . And this comes down to our disturbed idea of what "healthy" actually is in our world. There is no box we all fit in that confines us to what is healthy for our individual genes and bodies. Contrary to what popular media tells us, it is not 6 pack abs. It is not defined cheek or hip bones. It is not the ability to run a 6 minute mile or deadlift 200 lbs. . It is movement that helps us feel joyful. It helps us feel more capable, confident, and happy. We sleep better. We move better in daily tasks. We're surrounded by people who care for us. . With a gift to CO/CREATE, you're giving the gift of community, well-being, support, validation, and joy. It's not ONLY movement for BOTH partners, it's support, services, and hang out space for you to be your best you! . Buy this gift for your partner. Better yet, buy it for the both of you to be empowered TOGETHER!

Strength Training with Twins! . Continuing to move your body during pregnancy is highly encouraged as the benefits to mom and babes are endless! It shouldn't end simply because a mom is pregnant with multiples. . While mom builds strength for an ever increasing weight and change of gravity, babes learn stress resilience from a slight drop in oxygen during exercise and also benefit from the increased blood flow helping to build better brains! . Yes, the training sessions will look different between carrying a singleton vs. multiples. The intensity for a multiples mom is going to decrease sooner in the pregnancy due to the higher demands on her body. Continue working on the basics such as squats, hinging, upper body pressing and pulling, core stabilization (via anti-rotation or anti-extension), all with a slower pace, perhaps heavier load (or lighter depending on energy), and more rests to catch breath. . If you serve women pregnant with multiples or are pregnant with multiples, stop by for a tour so we can support you by helping you move safely while also having fun with other soon-to-be parents!
