A lovely share ❤️#Repost @onehealthyhapa ・・・ I am in TOTAL NEST mode these days. The urge to be quiet and connect with a new sense of womanhood is emerging so strong. I've never felt this way before in my life. It's almost like the drums and heartbeat of my ancestors are calling. Rooted. Grounded. Calm. Curious. Present. -- I can't resist the feeling to be nurturing and nourishing in new ways, despite the years of ambitious pushes in my career. This time is different. And the beauty of it all ladies, is that we get to create our own definition of MAMA. I am finding that I don't care much about the surface shit that floats around me. Like you almost shed a coat of caring about the things and people that are not worth your time. @instagraham and I had another phenomenal session with our midwife this week. She listens and encourages us to be true to ourselves and trust in OUR inner truth. While waiting for her before our session, we picked up a book in her office #thefirstfortydays . ❤️❤️❤️ WOW. I had to grab a copy myself and I am kind of speechless how this book arrived in my lap at this moment in our pregnancy. The ancient Chinese food tips are amazing, but more importantly, the stories and the ability to read and witness the author's journey is even more of a testimony that LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL. 🙏🏽 @instagraham
Beautiful look-in on a mother's new journey. Thank you for the post 💕#Repost @jessjuergens ・・・ I've been pretty loud about a book that I attribute a relatively smooth and calm postpartum experience: The First Forty Days. In most cultures in the world, there are rituals and communities of women that surround the new mother and child to ensure that both have time and space to be nourished physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We've largely lost those sentiments in our fast-paced culture, but this book is a breath of fresh air. It helps set expectations for what those first several weeks are truly like and provides practical suggestions for how you can recreate these age old rituals in today's society. Sooo, spoiler alert, new mama friends - this is going to be part of your gift from me. 😚 • You have arrived on the other side. After forty or so weeks of anticipation, you have delivered your baby in the single biggest act of giving you will ever perform. In one fierce exhale, your child crossed from within to without. • You have both landed in a radically new place. He's navigating a startling universe of lights, sounds, and gazing faces. You're settling into a body that has stretched beyond comprehension, a heart space that is expanding, and a family that has forever been reconfigured. As you take your first faltering, tender steps as mother and child, you are equally raw and vulnerable. • The Gateway allows you forty days to find your footing and inch your way into this new chapter of your life. It is a time and place apart from the outside world and life as you once knew it. It holds you as you recover from pregnancy and birth and as you begin to learn about your new baby. It is a cocoon in which to take a pause before the long journey of parenting begins. • It is the great inhale after the exhale. • • • Photo by @tiarrasorte • #thefirstfortydays #sixweeksold #darling #firsttimemom #fourthtrimester #honestmotherhood #ig_motherhood #liveauthentic #livethelittlethings #momentsofmine #momlife #momtogs #motherhood #thatsdarling #theartofslowliving #thehappynow #thisismotherhood #vscocam
Consider how, after delivery, you will be in an extremely vulnerable space, and it is wise to receive visitors who understand where you are and who will approach you gently, slowly, and quietly. — you decide who to invite into your postpartum nest 🐥.
It doesn't take much to get a simple dose of anti-inflammatory tonic in. Add a splash of apple cider vinegar, hot water and a scoop of honey, sliced fresh or powdered turmeric and stir. 🌟 . . . .📸 : @wyldephoto #postpartumjourney #postpartumdepression #postpartumnutrition #postpartumbody #nutritionaltherapy #holisticnutrition #youarewhatyoueat #bonebroth #organicliving #momlife #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodthroughinstagram #motherhood #healthymom #healthyfood #wholefoods #eatrealfood #postpartumfitness #nutrition #nourish #holistic #foodismedicine #antiinflammatory #elixer #turmeric
