This is a sponsored post. Regardless, all opinions are 100% my own and are not influenced in any way. #MotherNurture When I first learned I was pregnant with my oldest son I immediately changed my eating habits. It was the easiest transition ever for me to a healthy diet. I knew what went into my body would also be nourishing my unborn baby. It's been harder, as life has changed over the years, with each pregnancy since. That's why I love … [Read more...]

Multivitamin for women over 35

Advanced maternal age. Yes, those were the words I heard from my doctor's office with my last pregnancy.

Depend Underwear Bladd Leakage #underwareness #dropyourpants

She didn't understand why she had such an issue with leakage anytime she sneezed, couched, or laughed. I, too, have been through this issue on … [Read more...]

Why I Chose Placenta Encapsulation

Placenta Encapsulation

Placenta encapsulation is something that’s been talked about more and more in recent months. I heard about it in the fall (2013) when I was pregnant with Annie. My first thoughts?

When thinking about my postpartum … [Read more...]

[bump] babies Review – #Maternity Must Have!

Having some nice maternity shirts is important to an expecting mama, in my opinion.

I knew when I got pregnant again I would have to get one of their amazing shirts!  As you can see … [Read more...]
