Postpartum Health + Fitness After Baby # 2 //

May 31, 2017

Real talk: Postpartum health and fitness after one baby felt like a breeze. Postpartum health and fitness with a toddler and terrible newborn?? It feels impossible. Well, it felt impossible… I know, I know — I’ve heard that we make time for things that are important. And if health and fitness are important, you do […]

WHEN THE FOG CLEARS // Finding a way through postpartum depression

March 15, 2017

I’ve never shied away from talking about my struggles with postpartum depression and anxiety. In fact, while I was pregnant with my first child, Ari (now 4.5), I had a sneaking suspicion that I would be one of the 600,000 women in the United States each year to develop Postpartum Depression (PPD). I felt… prepared. […]

Letting Go Of Mommy Guilt //

March 12, 2017

Do you ever feel so overwhelmed by your to-do list that you decide to take a nap instead? That was pretty much my life last week. I can’t even explain why, because I don’t quite understand it. Things are fine. Heck, things are more than fine. But, still, I’ve been in a funk. A blog […]

Breastfeeding Miss Bea //

December 18, 2016

I feel inspired, friends. Inspired to share my story of breastfeeding Remy Bea. It turns out, I haven’t actually mentioned anything specific about our journey, other than the fact that she won’t take a bottle. So let me tell you a little bit about breastfeeding Miss Bea… *Note: Until now, I’ve never shared a single […]

It’s taken me nearly two years of combined breastfeeding and pumping (from two different children) to finally stop feeling like such a novice. For those who are unfamiliar with our story, know that it hasn’t been an easy road — with either child. But from the second I found out I was pregnant with Ari, […]

Hi friends. I realize it’s been some time since I spoke about my Postpartum Depression and Anxiety. I (finally) got to a place where I needed to step away from my thoughts and obsession (thanks, anxiety) with my sadness to really deal with it. Don’t get me wrong — the talking (and writing) about it […]

Remy Bea // 8 Months

September 30, 2016

I HAVE SO MUCH TO TELL YOU! Seriously. I just took a peek back at my 7 month post and the changes from then to now are astonishing. Let’s recap, shall we? She’s sitting up. I mean, she kinda was before. But now she’s 100% unassisted, no-wobble, sitting up. Speaking of no-wobble, she’s doing much […]

Seize Your (Poise) Moment //

July 20, 2016

I’m no stranger to talking about things that other people are too nervous (or scared) to talk about. PPD, anxiety, toddler problems, body image issues, hair loss, and, you know… a little light bladder leakage (LBL). Nope. That hasn’t stopped either. Recently I took my first yoga class postpartum. And by yoga class, I mean […]
