I remember the exact moment the lactation consultant told me how hard I was going to have to work to breastfeed Bennett (my 2nd babe). I remember how disappointed I was even though I thought I was prepared. I remember feeling let down and like my body had failed me. I...

I'm in this weird stage of motherhood and I think I need help figuring it out. 

I have these two tiny beings at home; 3-years old and 7ish months. I love them and I really love being a mom. But, I'm in the weirdest funk. I feel like I can't do anything and yet I WANT so...

I'm not a doctor. I'm not a lactation consultant or a doula and I haven't finished reading the Womanly Art of Breastfeeding.

I'm just a mom. 

A mom who has struggled twice with breastfeed. 

A mom who has stayed up into the wee hours of the morning searching kellymom and l...

Ahhh, the famous 6-week checkup.

If you're pregnant or postpartum (in the US), chances are you're familiar with this appointment. It is after all, the day in one's postpartum life when the doctor gives the green light to start moving your body and clears you to resume s...

I wanted to LOVE being pregnant. I really, really did. In fact I expected because of my health and love of activity that pregnancy would be a cake walk. I'd glow. Did you ever see Gisele while she was pregnant? Yeah, I kind of imagined that was just how it went.

Yes, of course I’m speaking to and on behalf of mamas, but I think this goes for most busy people I encounter: we need to be better, in general, of protecting our energy and taking care of ourselves.

The last few weeks have been filled with exceedingly long lists of to-...

Yoga during pregnancy is extremely popular- it can be slow, soft, and mindful but still offer the challenge, movement, and mobility work that an expectant mama really needs.

While many yoga poses can be done through all trimesters, it's good to pick poses that help work...

I remember waiting so patiently with my son for the half way mark to hit. It seemed like it took FOR-EV-ER and now, here I am scurrying around, feeling like I have so much left to do before this babe arrives.

This pregnancy could not be more different than my first; my...

If you've been paying attention to my posts as of late you'll notice that they have been less about fitness  and more about motherhood… and fairly introspective at that.

Obviously, this 2nd pregnancy and the idea of becoming a mama to two has my head in other places oth...

It's Ethan's (my son) 2nd birthday week. It's both a sentimental and anxious time as, I reminisce about how much has changed and how much I have changed over the past two years and as I ponder how much more will change over the next 6 months and two more years as we be...
