The elation of becoming a new mother is unparalleled.
It is full and unfettered joy. There is the little cocoon you create of blissful perfection. Your new little family, the immense love that fills your heart and home, settling in to a new routine, and getting to know the incredible tiny human you just grew.
I LOVE breastfeeding. So much so, that I have been nursing for 7.5 years straight. Non-stop through 2 pregnancies, and tandem nursed for a period after each second and third child was born. Nursing is an incredible bonding experience and I have been very blessed to have had an easy nursing journey. I also had an abundance of support from the very beginning. I home birthed all 3 children with a midwife and, in every way possible, the care and support was top notch.
Pregnancy truly is one of the most beautiful experiences in a woman’s life. I liken it to watching a rose in the spring. You see the new growth and color sprouting after the winter. Then the smallest rose bud appears, and every day after, you can watch the bud grow until, petal by petal, it blooms into the loveliest of flowers, fragrant and glowing with color.
The search for truly clean products in the sea of “natural beauty” products available can be overwhelming and disappointing. Aligning myself with the intention of creating with and from the purity of nature was born out of that frustration.
