If google can't help me, who can?!
Still on a high after last night's first class from our Bradley Method series! It's a tiny, but mighty class with THE coolest, sweetest couple! I'm so honored to be a part of their journey in this capacity. Our first class focused prenatal exercises, next week we tackle nutrition 🍎🍌🥑🥚🍳🍠🥕!
Good luck fellow moms. May their naps be long today and everyday.
Ok moms, let's be honest- how often do you go out in public and just cross your fingers that no one sees you? This classic example is brought to you by last night's pajamas (me & him) making a last minute run to the grocery store for Sweet Potatoes. We got in and out with out seeing anyone we knew. #phew
Cheers to daylight savings, you guys! And thank God for our husbands. @mamabearstl
joined me for drinks tonight at #plantershouse
and we talked pregnancy, birth planning, gender reveals and well, how many drinks it takes to survive a time change as a parent. Check out her insta page, you'll wanna sign up for her classes ASAP. Trust me. 👍🏼
My heart swells with love & gratitude whenever I look at these pictures of my husband/best friend/partner as he coached me through labor with our daughter. I kept my eyes closed for much of the labor, so I didn't have many visual memories of him from that day. But so many of my other senses were heightened that I vividly remember how strong & loving his arms felt, how warm & comforting his skin felt against mine, & how his scent kept me calm & grounded. When our photographer delivered our photos, I was blown away by how perfectly these photos reflected how he felt to me on that day - full of love, compassion, respect, and concern. Ladies, let's empower our partners in this beautiful journey towards parenthood. They deserve to be empowered, too. 💗- Michelle

Classes are offered in the comfort of my home in Webster Groves, MO. As a pregnant momma, meeting in our instructor’s home was one of my favorite things about our series (lots of seating options, a warm/cozy family environment, and easy access to a clean bathroom – which can all agree is super important to pregnant women!). Classes include:
• Comprehensive education on pregnancy, labor & delivery, and postnatal care.
• Enrichment through teacher instruction, class discussion, interactive activities, video presentations, and "homework" assignments.
• Emotional support from me (as your Bradley instructor), my husband (who will join us on occasion as a “guest speaker” to offer his coaching perspectives & answer any questions you may have about the coaches role), and from other class participants.
• Exercise demonstrations and practice.
• Nutritious snacks for mom, dad, and baby.
• Relaxation training for the mind and body.
• A student workbook.
• Access to my lending library of books, videos, and supplemental resources.
Conversations about Moonlight & La La Land- and I'm over here pulling for Zootopia. You?
It still feels like yesterday that I was washing & folding these for the first time - with my sweet babe tucked safely in my belly & me dreaming of our first meeting. The memories of being pregnant & preparing for our babies are some of my favorite memories of all time. (Note: yard sale prepping makes this mama extra emotional)
