When birth class materials double as "Cool Dinosaur Bones!!!" for your 5-year old. #parentingwin #pleasedontbreakthatpelvis
St. Louis, it's a perfect day to get outside and LOVE LIFE.
Loving this article from @mothermag - serving as a good midweek reminder of what's truly important. #listentothechildren #kidsareimportant #yourfeelingsarevalid
You really can.
Hi! I'm Michelle! And I'm so happy you're here! I figured I should probably "introduce" myself, so here goes! * Wife of my college sweetheart. * Momma to 2 miracles - our 5 year old son & his "almost" 3 year old sister. * Infertility Warrior. * Part-time Stay-At-Home-Mommy. * Part-time Licensed Clinical Social Worker (I work as a school-based therapist 3 days/week). * Natural birth junkie. * Lover of chocolate, chips & salsa, reading, sweatpants, being outside, play dates with friends, & time with my family. * Believer in love, kindness, compassion, self-care, & supporting one another.
If you or someone you know is expecting a summer baby, now is the time to register for my February classes! Link to my childbirth website in profile!
Two kiddos later (one c-section; one epidural-free VBAC), here are four things I loved about the Bradley Method - which inspired me to begin teaching classes of my own: 1.- Education: One of the great things about Bradley classes is that it’s not just about giving birth. It’s about empowering women (and their partners) to understand the process of how things work and why they work they way they do. As they say, knowledge is power. When you know how your body is working to sustain and give life, you are better equipped to support the process – from nutrition to physical preparation to mindfulness to optimal birthing positions. 2.- Partner Support: We created life together and we were committed to giving birth together, but we didn’t actually know how to do that. Our Bradley classes gave intention to our goal. We committed to each other by carving out 2 hours each week to attend class together – it became our set date for the week. It truly strengthened our commitment to one another and our desire to be a team in parenting. 3.- Confidence: The knowledge we gained in learning about pregnancy, birth, and pros/cons of various birthing options empowered us to be active, informed participants in the decisions that were made about our birth experience. 4.- Inspiration: Our Bradley classes and our birth experiences (both the c-section and the VBAC) inspired me in ways I never could have imagined. I learned so much about myself in the process. I never knew how strong I was (am). How beautiful and capable my body was (is). And I want to share that with as many moms as possible. I am inspired to reach beyond myself to bring women and parents together – because let’s be real: we can all use as much love, kindness, and support as humanly possible. --michelle
I guess I was asking for this headache... . . . . #stork #mickeymouse #toddlermom #stlouismom #hotdogsong #momlife
It was so beautiful out today that I completely rushed my makeup. This picture looks so crazy without any lipstick on. I initially forgot to put some on. I ended up whipping on some Kylie Posie K before going to the park with my lil man. I've been on a mission to find the best liner for me to wing it out with. I reallly really love the Tarte, but thought I would try the Nyx liquid liner too. I now have 2 types of liners that I'm really impressed with! I'm so stoked! I still have a ton of practicing to do to perfect my wings, but it's coming along. I feel like I can actually leave the house while wearing it now lol! 😂 #wingedliner #wingitout #nyxliner #neutralmakeup #lorealtotalcover #makeupgeekshadow #jaclynhillfacepalette #tartehighlight #kylielipkitposiek #beautifulday #MOTD #makeupselfie #blondehairblueeyes #hoodedeyes #hoodedeyesmakeup #feelslikesummer #ilovethisweather #boymom #stlouismom #selfiesaturday
