December 30, 2016 | 0 Comments

I didn’t blog much this year. Most of my writing was on Facebook and Instagram, but since this whole thing started as a “dear diary” blog nearly 8 years ago, I’m writing this today so I can look back on this phase of motherhood, career, family and change. It’s important to me to keep this …

No One Told Me About Pelvic Floor Health

September 27, 2016 | 0 Comments

When I was pregnant, I was praised for being healthy and fit. I was continually told how easily I would “bounce back” because of my training. I was told (and believed) that listening to my body was enough during this phase of life. The message of “keep doing what you’ve always done” played in my …

January 9, 2016 | 0 Comments

I’ve written about Diastasis Recti for a few years now! Thankfully there’s more awareness, but with this, there’s even more misinformation, which is so easy to fall victim to! For a while, I documented my own struggles and frustrations with the lack of information, conflicting information and unqualified professionals. I saw my share of professionals …

The Natural Childbirth World Failed Me

September 30, 2015 | 3 Comments

My post earlier struck a chord with those close to me. My sister, who is getting her Doctorate in Psychology, called me in tears saying she tried to tell me. My sister, mom, best friend…they all tried to direct me to the right resources and help. As I responded to her, I couldn’t hold back …
