Thank you @nicpicphotography for the gorgeous portrait. 📸 You are a miracle for flying in just to take care of us so selflessly during such a fragile time of us learning how to function from a family of 3 to a family of 5. Forever grateful. 🙏🏼

Postpartum. Like pregnancy, it’s a process which is why it’s referred to as the 4th trimester. I’m working on being patient and gentle with myself. I love structures and routines and get anxiety in chaos. This period of time is full of chaos lol.
Eric was working full time up until Ezra was born. We’re blessed that he gets paternity leave, and he’s been slowing getting the house in order and making sure I stay fed, hydrated and in bed. Also playing with Aj and getting him together.
Our tribe has been amazing bringing us food, playing with Aj and holding Ezra.
It takes time for our bodies to readjust and heal. It takes time for babies to also adjust to the world outside of our womb. It takes time for a family to adjust to a new addition. Aj is learning to ask Eric for things instead of myself. Eric is adjusting to doing the tasks that I usually do. I’m learning to just go with the flow and take care of my body. Acceptance. This is all a temporary part of the process and process is necessary.
Our house will get clean, we will all grow, learn and adjust. Structure & routine will eventually be restored. All is well.

Sometimes I look at these two and think it’s pretty crazy to think that they ever fit inside me. That’s a lot of baby!

My bff @sarahjanele allowed me to open up about something VERY personal to her family. Right before she gave birth, her family found out that her dad was leaving her mom for another woman- after 25 years of a seemingly happy marriage 🤦‍♀️ It was a HUGE shock to everyone, and is still a huge trial in her life. It changed her whole perspective on being a #boymom. While I’m over here trying to raise a strong, independent daughter, she is working hard to raise her son to be honest, faithful, and kind so he can be a good husband and father one day 💪MAN we have huge responsibilities- but she is doing it with grace and love. I look up to her so much and secretly hope our babies get married on day so we can upgrade from being soul sisters to FAMILY! 😉 Give my best friend @sarahjanele a follow, she has the prettiest feed of anyone I know! ❤️

"About a week after giving birth, when all three babies were finally sound asleep in their beds, I sat on the kitchen island and tearfully confessed to my husband all the unpleasant thoughts that had washed over me since giving birth.  I told him I felt jealous when other people, including him, spent time with my older children while I tended to our newborn—yet I felt guilty leaving the newborn with someone else.  I told him I had waves of regret that I had not been more present to our older children before the baby was born, and that I experienced painful nostalgia for times when my feelings were more simple and clear.  Worst of all, I told him, I suddenly felt a crisis of meaning, purpose, and vocation. I was agonizing over my past career and mothering decisions, and anxious about taking my next steps should be, as a mother, teacher, and lawyer.  Fortunately, since this was my third time experiencing those feelings, I was able to recognize them as part of the “baby blues.” According to the American Pregnancy Association, 70-80% of women experience some negative feelings or mood swings after the birth of a child.  But based on conversations with other moms, I bet the number is much closer to 100%."  Cynthia of @inbeautyglorified for EM today: "I love my new baby, so why am I sad?"

A year ago today, I went for my first ob visit. During the ultrasound,my ob asked my husband to take a sit, then he goes well there’s 2 babies in there. While I was screaming out of excitement my husband leaned in to look at the scans hoping my doctor made a mistake. Took him about 10 minutes to get over the shock 😅

Arlo took his first little trip out today to pick Teddy up from nursery. Teddy was very excited to see us at the door and we took Arlo in to show his friends. He was so proud 💙
I was so excited to use Teddy’s @silvercrossuk pram we had saved, just gave it an update by changing the good and apron pack. Love knowing both my babies have used it and the navy shows off the crocheted blanket my very talented sister @katieroodle made for Arlo.

This 🙌🏻 those first few months postpartum; I felt like I had no idea who I was. Now that i am past the 4 month mark, I’m slowly but surely, kinda sorta maybe, starting to feel some ground beneath my feet as my identity becomes more set. Trying to be my best self for my baby and my family, when I don’t have a strong sense of “self” to begin with, has been hard. But I’ve been taking more alone time lately which is helping me feel a bit more rooted into who I am now, as a mom, recognizing that it’s going to change day by day and even moment by moment. Just keep checking in with yourself and remember you’re doing the best you can 💕

✨This is beautiful and heartbreaking. I wish I would have known my last time nursing was going to be my last time and also that I would’ve been able to document it. ・・・
✨For those of you who have nursed-did you know it was going to be your last time? If so, did you do anything to document it in any way? ・・・
Repost from @mayavorderstrasse ・・・
The first and last time my precious Hazel ever nursed.
I didn’t know that one person could feel so proud and so broken at the same time, right now I am a hormonal, emotional, and mental mess.
Raising my arm in this picture was very difficult for me as I had to fight through uncontrollable tears: this picture meant that I would never breastfeed my Hazel ever again. I have been nursing for so long, that I don’t know what it’s like to not nurse anymore. As I looked behind the camera, Tim is crying like I had never seen him cry before, like seriously, a deep gut cry. I was her comfort, her safe place, and I hope she still finds me that way. A month shy of 2 years old, she finally has a bed in a shared bedroom with her sister. We bought Hazel her first bed, used any distraction we could come up with, snacks and new toys to keep her mind off of it. Tim has taken over bedtime completely, including all nighttime wakings. We are on our third day, and every day gets a little bit easier. The guilt I feel for not putting her to bed is so intense and I can’t wait to go back to it once she doesn’t ask to nurse anymore. Closing a chapter is painful, but I am hopeful that this new season of our lives will also be special in its own way. Through this maturation step she will not only grow more independent, but I will get a much needed break. She unlatched for the last time and sobbingly I said to Tim: “I did my best”. He hugged me and responded with: “No. You did THE best, because you gave her your all”. I love my family and am so thankful for such special and unforgettable moments like these. 💛 *my lazy boob has no clue about what’s going on, but thoughts and prayers are accepted for my good one, I really think it might explode🤱🏻 **thank you Tim, for insisting on filming this, I will treasure this forever.🤳🏼👩‍👧

When I quit my job and became my own boss, Noah was 19 months old. Old enough to no longer be my little baby, but young enough to not remember there was once a time when mommy worked for someone else. For Ryan, this is all he’ll know!
Being my own boss is something I don’t take for granted. Every single day that I’m able to stay home with my little ones, is a huge blessing. The countless days we get to take off each year for sick days, fun days, rest days, and quality family time are why I do it.
Since the day they were born, both of my children have empowered me to accomplish BIG things! Things that I would never have even imagined I could do! They are the inspiration behind my wildest dreams! I dream big because one day I want them to dream even BIGGER!
What’s one quality that your child gets from you? Even at a young age, Noah has always hated getting dirty! Like to the point where I have to tell him he can get dirty while eating a slice of pizza 😂 Poor kid totally gets it from me! And Ryan totally gets frustrated if something isn’t working the way he anticipated it! Whoops! 😜

Littlest love, where did the time go?
One moment you're so small in my arms and next you're all grown.
Littlest love, how did you get so big?
I blink for a moment, but I can't seem to remember a thing.
Littlest love, oh how I love you so.
I'll hold you tight forever, never letting you go ❤️
Littlest love, how far away will you fly?
When it's your time to go will you soar into the sky?
Littlest love, oh you're my little babe...
I'd give up everything just to have you throughout my days.
Littlest love, my ever growing girl.
I will love you forever, never letting you go 👶 •

One week with our sweet Indy girl. I LOVE the newborn stage so much. So tiny, cuddly and perfect. I could take a few extra months of this 💞

One week with our sweet Indy girl. I LOVE the newborn stage so much. So tiny, cuddly and perfect. I could take a few extra months of this 💞

Lately my days have been spent doing mostly family and newborn work- and that makes me happier than I could ever really properly put into words. Working alongside families, documenting their precious ones, their itty bitty babies and their big kids, and their love and connection for another is just so... special. My hope is that not only do my clients walk away from their investment with me not only happy and satisfied with their images but also in the experience of working with someone whose passion makes them feel comfortable enough to open up and simply smile... and it’s this simple: people. You are what makes me “me” every-single-day. Working with people, serving people, desiring to make people happy with my talents and gifting people still frames of their cherished beloveds, all while feeling and being seen, is everything. I love that my children get to see this side of humanity up close.

Sometimes after a baby, you may feel sad, teary, and even overwhelmed and those feelings are completely normal! That stage is known as postpartum baby blues. For many moms postpartum baby blues can turn into postpartum depression if it lasts longer than about 2 weeks. The cause of postpartum baby blues and depression are unknown but many experts contribute it to the fluctuation of hormones. Postpartum depression is the most common complication after pregnancy. So if you are feeling alone, more sad than normal please don’t be afraid to reach out. Postpartum doulas are here to help. 🦋

Woke up, practiced gratitude, date with body combat at the gym, amazing breakfast (check my stories!) and now cuddles on the couch while I work.
Sometimes my energy surprises me. My amazing sleep down right shocks me! A world of difference from my first child (no offense Sophia). What’s different?
Ketones. Ketones are in my life.
So I’m super pumped that on this random Wednesday we have a 15% off sale on our entire stock, including 10 day trial packs.
I mean, I used to spend more on Starbucks and junk than I do on my monthly ketones and they make me feel 💯 % better than that crap. Heck, I’d pay triple the amount for how I feel during this typically exhausting time of life!
Drink ketones, experience...
Better sleep
Better focus and mood
Fat loss
Better energy
Better appetite (not wanting to eat ALL the carbs and sugars)
That’s it. Simple yet powerful.
If you’re ready to experience how science 🧬 meets health for something like you’ve never experienced, reach out to me for your code.
Existing customers, you know the drill. #newmom #fourthtrimester #babysnuggles #keto #fitmom

A little introduction...Building a relationship with your Doula throughout your pregnancy makes the actual labor and birth less stressful. Having someone present that you know and trust gives you even more safe space to labor and birth without feeling like you have a stranger in the room. ⠀
⠀
I am a mother of 3 and stepmother to 3. Age ranges from 13-22. 😊 I am working full time as a birth and postpartum Doula supporting families in the Cincinnati area. I work a few hours a week at a hair salon and sing in a band on the weekends. I love coffee and chipotle but not at the same time. I believe that women supporting women is the most powerful force. I’m a total #birthnerd and will gladly have a conversation about birth with anyone willing to do so.

GIRL GANG to MOM TRIBE 👯‍♀️💖 There’s something crazy special about going through this journey with your besties ☺️ From being pregnant together, to delivering days apart, and then living that postpartum mom life with a trusted friend is the purest kind of support. Becoming mothers together makes the friendship bond even stronger and deeper. ✨ You can commiserate about the hardships of breastfeeding (and all the other things 🤭) together and be curious about your little ones and what it means to be a mom together. You can set up play dates for your babes (or for yourself - that’s needed too! 😉), go on much-needed little outings with strollers in hand, and you can just rest assured that someone will know exactly what you mean when you send a HELP text at 4pm when your baby has been crying non-stop, you haven’t showered or had coffee, and you’re on the verge of walking out the🚪. Your mama friend gets you and she’s got you. 👭 What’s even more amazing about becoming moms together as that you get to enter this new and exciting chapter TOGETHER! And you get to see each other learn, grow, and blossom into beautiful mamas 🌷How cool is that?!

Emmy has the most wonderful mop of hair. It’s delicious and I hope it doesn’t fall out. This morning was spent having a long overdue catch up with the boss and having (weird) but, wonderful lunch and baby snuggles.
Oh and Joshua will be back, he’s just having much more fun photographing Emmy than being in the photos himself!

"mom, why don't you ever bring a bathing suit on vacation" Cruz asked while all 6 of our family members were jumping in and splashing around the pool at the hotel, while I sat and watched as always. The words "because I'm too f🤬" nearly spilled out. How ugly would that have been for my kids to hear. How sad is that I allowed fear of judging eyes to keep me away from having fun with my family. So I went straight to the store and bought a bathing suit and here I am for the first time in 9 years... NINE YEARS.. in a bathing suit, without a care, having a blast #PowerInPostpartumThis IG space can be very overwhelming and negative sometimes, however it has been very inspiring and motivating in so many ways. I have made some amazing connections with mamas walking the same paths, the same seasons. Seeing so many beautiful stories has brought so much perspective on my personal postpartum journey. Do I want to lose some weight.. YES absolutely, but not for anything other than become healthier and stronger for me and my family. I have taken my time the last 2 years to care for my mental health. I have learned to love and appreciate myself and my body. This body, that is used to sit in the background and watch everyone else have fun, has given me 5 beautiful children in 5 years. Its about time I stop worrying about others and just live in the moments and enjoy this time. There is only 18 summers before adulthood and the time that our children will actually want to spend with us is even less. How silly it is to waste these precious moments worrying about what others think of us, of what we look like. If you need me, I will be splashing around or floating in this amazing Unicorn Island🦄 from @CanadianTire all summer long. And yes, you are more than welcome to come hang out with us 🍹😉

If you’ve seen my stories you’ll know this isn’t us today.
Today we’re full of sneezes and snot, aches and pains and feeling very sorry for ourselves.
I’ve been struck down by the same stomach bug I had less than 2 weeks ago which is just down right rude and my poor baby girl is full of a cold.
All she wants to do is cry and cuddle and cuddle and snooze and I feel so bad for her because I’m trying every trick in the parenting book to make her feel better but not having much success.
My friend reminded me about the calpol plug in today so obvs I rushed out and bought one. It’s been on in our room for an hour before bed already and it’s cleared my nose right up so I’m hoping it’ll help Taya to sleep better tonight than she did last night 🤞🏻

Is it time yet? I am rolling into my 5th week postpardum and full disclosure I am getting pretty excited/anxious to start working out again. I have been trying to go for walks but while great for getting Miss Thing to sleep not so great for getting those endorphins going. After all

After all "Exercise gives you endorphins; endorphins make you happy and happy people just don't shoot their husbands! #legallyblondequote . I know the first few weeks will be ROUGH. While I stayed active through my entire pregnancy I've been pretty inactive the last 5 weeks. In fact, the very long walk I went on Monday had me pretty sore all day yesterday - I guess I should stretched 🤷. . This week I am going to continue to ramp up my activity when I can aka when Julianna cooperates and then commit to a program next week! Want to join me?

What would you like more of in your life? Relaxation? Connection? Knowledge? Whatever it is start to build daily or weekly rituals around these elements. 

Whether it's having a relaxing bath, taking time to connect with your growing baby or perhaps enjoying a guided pregnancy meditation, these little rituals can help you to focus on the things that are important to you, which can be especially useful during pregnancy, a time when mentally and physically things might be feeling a little different and your focus may be starting to shift with those changes. 

Rituals keep us in close proximity to our purpose and are sometimes defined as the outward demonstration of an inward value.

One of the worst and most popular pieces of advice for parents whose child is struggling to sleep is to keep them up later so they will sleep better at night.
⬅️ Swipe for truth. It may surprise you!
👶 A child will have an easier time falling asleep and staying asleep when they go to bed earlier!
🧠 Why is that? When a child (or anyone for that matter) becomes overtired their brain triggers the body to produce sleep-fighting hormones that make it difficult for a child to fall asleep. Once they are asleep it is difficult to stay asleep as internally, their body plays a game of tug of war. Their need for sleep is battling with these no-good hormones causing a child to continue to wake.

"If this isn’t the definition of mom life then I don’t know what is: eating over the counter, spit up on the shirt, and eating as fast as I can before Jace looses his mind for his bottle and bed time routine. To keep myself calm, it takes a lot of deep breaths, wine, and my favorite mom app, @peanut ! I think one of the hardest things about motherhood is the challenges. As much as intuition kicks in, being able to turn to other like-minded moms for advice is so helpful. The @peanut app introduces you to women in your neighborhood based on the things you have in common—interests, mutual friends, age/gender of your children, and so much more! You can connect, chat, join groups and ask questions to a community of women who just get it. The fact I have a place to go where other moms like me are connecting, launching, crying and coming together has kept me sane these last few months. Forming a community of mom friends in my area has been a true blessing! Shout out to all my momma’s out there who need this community as much as I do." - @kramergirl

Having a ball at the Jersey Shore 🏖

You know...once a gymnast, always a gymnast, so it’s pretty normal for me to do handstands wherever I can, right?! 😆🤸🏻‍♀️

We took Joey on his first bike ride today on the boardwalk and it was so nice to just have time with @yonushonisjames to talk and be outside enjoying this beautiful day together 💙 .

🙌🏼11 weeks🙌🏼
We’ve almost made it through the 4th trimester!! The craziest few months of my life 😅
She’s been an absolute dream the past few days, happy, exploring and learning all the time! 💕
Not going to lie but I found the first 8 weeks in particular extremely tough... she was so unhappy when she was awake, I can only presume tummy pains and overtiredness. I hated being around people or out of the house as she was so upset all the time 😢 evenings involved hours trying to stop her screaming and rocking her to sleep. She wouldn’t be put down without screaming within seconds and I didn’t even get to go for a wee alone for weeks. Given my parents living 5 hours away I’ve had very little support beside my husband who works Long hours.
It led to exhaustion, some miserable times and serious bickering with my hard working husband 😔 I loved her and felt so blessed but felt beside myself that she was such an unhappy bean... however we seem to have cracked it and she is an absolute joy at the minute 😊
I really hope that doesn’t sound ungrateful but it was a really tough time and I like to be honest on here... I’ve been working really hard on naps and night sleep to make sure she gets enough time to process all the things she’s learning and not get overtired. It’s going pretty well 🤞🏼 We’ve been experimenting with some Facebook marketplace buys which she seems to love including a little chair for her to sit in and a jumperoo 💕
The biggest surprise is that aside from the sciatica I developed one week pp the recovery has been great! I even did a workout the other day 🎉 I still feel pretty flabby and would like to lose a stone to get to a weight I can be happier with but I’m happy to take it slow 😊

How has it been one month already!? Seriously! How is it June 19th!? This last month has been that weird, foggy month that has flown by yet stood still at the same time. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Blaire absolutely loves to be held and to eat. ⁣
All. The. Time! ⁣
Her fussiness has gone down quite a bit; I think girlfriend just has an insanely fast metabolism! ⁣
⁣
But, with that being said, I have been far more behind on getting back to my daily routine! We’re working on it though! Plus, there’s nothing like newborn cuddles. I’m not mad about it at all💕🥰🎀 ⁣⁣

Ever wondered what your bladder looks like during pregnancy? ⠀
.⠀
Most believe pelvic floor issues come from vaginal delivery and labour itself, but actually the weight and pressure on the pelvic floor muscles from carrying a baby is also just as likely to cause a weakened pelvic floor. So whether you gave birth vaginally or via caesarean your pelvic floor exercises matter!⠀

Did you know?⠀
⠀
You actually need more calories while breastfeeding than you do during pregnancy! On average, 500 calories a day more than usual. ⠀
⠀
Translation: Why yes, I *will* have that everything bagel with extra cream cheese pleaseandthankyou.⠀

Vitamin k is a naturally occuring substance that is involved in the clotting process of our blood. Vitamin K levels in babies are naturally much lower than in healthy adults.
.
A very small number of babies will suffer from something called Vitamin K deficiency bleeding (VKDB), the majority of these babies will make a full recovery following treatment, however it can be incredibly serious & in very rare cases cause brain damage or may be fatal.
.
As we have no way of knowing which babies will be affected by VKDB, All babies in the UK are offered prophylactic Vitamin K (giving it to all babies to reduce the overall number of babies affected by VKDB). Please note that VKBD is not a contageous condition & Vitamin K is not a vaccine.
.
The best available research is varied but as an estimate shows that for babies born in high income countries such as the UK, just under 1 in 10,000 babies would suffer with VKDB.
.
Vitamin K can be given as an injection, which reduces the chance of VKDB to around 1 in 100,000 or several dose orally (number of does varies) reduces the rate to around 3 in 100,000.
.
The downsides to giving babies vitamin k include short term pain if given by injection, plus rare but possible localised infection & very rare chance of allergic reaction either to the vitamin k or other substances in the shot. Also, we do not know why babies have naturally low levels of vitamin k & the long term affects of vitamin k are currently under researched & essentially unknown. The general opinion is that it has now been given for a very long time & we're yet to see any serious complications in observation.
.
Vitamin K can become a very complex conversation (one far too big for an Instagram caption), but hopefully this gives you a basic insight. If you would like more information I would recommend the book 'Vitamin K & the Newborn' by Sara Wickham
.
How & whether to give your baby vitamin k is entirely your choice. As with anything, get yourself informed & make a decision that feels right for you. I kindly ask that in the comments of this post we all remain respectful of each other & refrain from putting our own views upon anyone else 😊

Comment below if this rings true for you, too👇⠀
⠀
I had no idea that my baby would be perfectly fine (or that it was perfectly normal) if I let her nap on me. I remember being so obsessed with her sleep in the first few months. All of the messages I was being exposed to (even from her pediatrician) were telling me that she needed to be able to sleep in her crib and put herself to sleep.⠀
⠀
But guess what? Nothing I tried worked (and yes, I did try some forms of “gentle” sleep training, but it always made me feel awful and I never got very far). ⠀
⠀
I wasn’t successful in changing my newborn (thankfully!), but I eventually changed myself. I became informed about normal business biological infant sleep patterns and found my instincts. I realized my instincts were more powerful than any information I had been consuming for the last 6 months. ⠀
⠀
So in case no one’s told you, it’s OKAY to let your baby sleep on you. You will not ruin your baby by letting her take naps in your arms. Please spread the word to other new mamas. ❤️

While healing Hashimoto’s I learned how much skincare and makeup affect our hormones, fertility and overall health.
.
It was eye opening to realize so many products I was using could have been negatively impacting my fertility and autoimmune health. At that point in time, many years ago, I wanted to clean up my beauty game, buuuut I also wanted products that worked, and IMHO, many “clean” beauty products didn’t get the job done back then.
.
When I embarked on a fertility journey a couple years ago, I felt it was time to get serious about cleaning up my skincare and beauty started to make sure the “home” I was creating through my body for my baby was a healthy one, so that her immune system and body grew as healthy and strong as possible.
.
Over the last couple of years I found some kick ass products that WORK, and many are more affordable than the toxic stuff I was using. I’m sharing my favs with you in my blog this week ... plus a couple treats to my subscribers. Sign up to receive in link @mollyhamill!

DADS & BEDTIME
➕
When our first baby was born, my husband and I made the choice that I would stay home full time. Within the first few months, one of the best decisions we made was that my husband would have bedtime duty. For both of us, it was a win-win. I was at home with our daughter all day, and by the time evening rolled around, I was exhausted and needed some “me” time. My husband was at work all day, and usually had less than an hour at home before it was time to put the baby to bed, which meant during the week he didn’t get a lot of bonding time. Our bedtime solution met both our needs. It gave me the chance to have a break. And doing bedtime every night with our daughter was the highlight of my husbands day—it’s how they bonded that first year. They would laugh, read books, make faces, play in the bath, and connect with one another. My husband OWNED bedtime! It was the best.
➕
If the dad in your life isn’t feeling very connected to baby, or they are bummed they don’t get more time with baby each day, consider making bedtime his thing. It’s truly empowering for dads—having alone with the baby and knowing exactly how to care for them.
➕
This is absolutely an option for breastfeeding babies. Just feed baby first, at the beginning of bedtime. Then hand baby off to dad, and they get their special time together. Now, this assumes baby is not being fed to sleep, so it may take some practice. Nothing is going to happen perfectly the first couple of times. But in the long run, it might be worth it to your family!
➕
Does your husband have a special time of the day with baby? Are they a bedtime pro? Do you like the current bedtime routine your family has?
