After the first initial weeks of feeding and sleeping Babies stay longer awake and like to explore. This wooden mobile with its bright colours are perfect to explore and learn to grab things. For awake times I like the @cocoonababy.au as a play mat as well. #fourthtrimester #babymobile #woodentoys #maternitynurse #babynurse #handeyecoordination #exploringhands #baby #babyleaps #growingup #simpletoys #munich #postnatalcare #maternitynurselife #maternitynursegermany #munich #schwabing

Thankful. For the gift of Henry’s life. For the ways this pregnancy increased my faith. For a spontaneous labor & natural delivery on the very best day. For two sweet boys who welcomed their newest little brother with open arms & 1,000 kisses. For newborn photos with tiny fingers & a button nose. Thankful. Today and every day. 🖤

Coming alongside my clients and watching them go through all the joyful emotions of life, makes me so grateful. When you are full of JOY or scared and nervous on your wedding day or maternity shoot, I will be there for you. ❤️ Back in my “office administration” life many years ago, I met this glowing mama-to-be!

Now she has purchased her first home sweet home, is happily married and is having her first bouncing baby boy. 👶🏻
Congratulations Ashlee and Matt! •

I can’t believe this little squish is already 4 weeks old! He’s getting so big and is still happy as a clam (are clams really happy? Does anyone really know?) unless he’s hungry or wet. Which is good because dad goes back to work on Monday and Mauricio is still, well, Mauricio. #SebastianEverett #fourthtrimester #newborn #boymom

You are doing a great job.

You are not alone.

Postpartum doulas do the quiet work of lifting moms up during their hardest moments.  As they juggle their precious newborn into a comfortable breastfeeding position for the first time.  As they shed a tear in a moment of overwhelm.  As they realize that they are actually doing a great job.  As they realize that we were not meant to do this alone.

Having babies is expensive business right! There’s the classes, the clothes, the furniture, the buggy (that may as well be a small second hand car at that price)! Are you approaching the end of your pregnancy and working out whether its worth the extra £30-60 for a TENS machine? Maybe it would help to understand a little more how they work and why they may help
.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
TENS machines are a non-pharmacological method of pain relief, where 4 electrode pads are stuck to your lower back, which send mild, electrical pulses through the skin. Through something known as the 'gate control theory' this helps diffuse the sensations being sent to the brain, and confuse the message that it should be picking up. Should it be listening to the sensation of contractions? Or the buzzy sensation from the TENS? Similar to how you might rub a toddler's knee when they fall over! It's thought that the sensation of the TENS may also increase the body's production of it's own pain relieving hormone- endorphins, which if you could bottle, are stronger than morphine! Many women also find them to be a helpful ‘distraction’ too, giving them something to focus on and to be in control of. Most machines come with a BOOST button, which when used during contractions, increased the benefits mentioned above!
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What does the research say? Most recent research shows that TENS can decrease pain levels during labour and increase maternal satisfaction around birth, there do not currently appear to be any negative side effects of using TENS during labour. So there’s certainly no harm in giving it a go!
.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A TENS machine can be used throughout labour (unless you get in a bath or shower, for obvious reasons ⚡️) but by putting it on in early labour, you are able to build up your body’s supply of endorphins and potentially increase their ongoing pain relieving power! Magic 💪🏼

Did you use a TENS machine during labour? Did you find it helpful?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A word from one of our mamas!

Repost from @taasharenee using @RepostRegramApp - #fourthtrimester #iLoveSage Hey Mamas🤱🏽🤰🏽! Any of you had your placenta encapsulated?! If so, did you notice a difference in your recovery? When I found out this was a thing, I immediately knew I wanted to do it....cuz, why not eat your placenta right 🤷🏾‍♀️? It was made by your body and it’s the most natural thing your body will recognize to help it after having your precious baby! With all the benefits that come with it, I really wanted to take it in hopes that I could prevent postpartum shedding. I just started my locs over and I didn’t want my edges to run away from me while on my loc journey....sounds ideal right? But ain’t nan thing that talks about your placenta helping with shedding. 🤣
•

Research has shown that when mothers take the placenta pills, there is an increased release of the hormone oxytocin, which helps the uterus return to normal size quicker, reduces post-partum bleeding, increase of CRH, which is a stress reducing hormone, there is a decrease in post-partum depression, restoration of iron levels in the blood, gives more energy to take care of baby, and it helps increase milk production

Thank you @alwayscabu4u for doing my pills and making his 🖤 and “S” from his precious cord! Now that I’ve said all that....future mommies, did you know this was a thing? Have you thought about it? Will you do it? 🤔🤔 #placentaencapsulation

Today was one of those workouts that I didn’t really want to do, but I knew I NEEDED.
.

Started my morning with a grumpy 4 year old, who needed to be guided through his morning routine every step of the way. So yeah, my patience and sanity was basically non existent by the time I got him off to school. 🙈 .

Oh mamas, we have the most important job in the world, but dang it can be draining and exhausting. Because there are so many things we want to control, but these tiny humans don’t really roll like that most of the time. We do our very best to guide them, lead them, and show them grace along the way, but they are little button pushers — am I right? 😂
.

So on days like this, there is one thing I can control, MY MINDSET. Even on days where working out seems exhausting in itself, I know 3 minutes in I will be glad I started! I pressed play for my SANITY, for my MINDSET, for that after workout high in living in right now. Aaaaand so I won’t yell at my kids. 😜
.

It all starts with YOU. When life gets crazy, makes you wanna scream and you just want to sit around and sulk in all the negativity. Show up and sweat it out! I promise you won’t regret it. 😘

Late night and early morning — and I have a smile on my face 😳.
-
I have no idea where this woman came from, but I am freaking proud of her💃🏼🙌🏼. Never in a million years would I think I’d be excited to push play on a workout video before 7AM.
-
Evening gym sessions were my jam. Buuttt I’d also show up there NOT with a smile on my face, because it felt like a chore. I had the mentality of I HAVE to, rather than I GET to 💁🏼‍♀️.
-
I get to be strong.
I get to be healthy.
I get to be happy.

We always have the choice to change our thoughts💕. Change your mind — change your life.

Postpartum Doulas support all ways of feeding your baby.
Need to supplement? No worries.
Breastfed? Awesome!
Formula? Super!
As a postpartum doula I’m there as a NON-JUDGMENTAL support no matter what your journey is in the first weeks and months postpartum.
➡️Assisting with breastfeeding positions to deepen your baby’s latch.
➡️Helping you navigate what formula is best for your baby. Dairy? Non-dairy? Non-GMO?
➡️Assisting with ways to minimize gassiness/ indigestion and provide support in pace bottle feeding.
➡️Want to increase the time your baby has at the breast? Advocate for an SNS (supplemental nursing system)!
➡️Need donor breastmilk? Postpartum Doulas can help!!

You know how we always hear that we need to take care of ourselves first so we can better take care of others? Put on your oxygen mask first, right?! Turns out that I am not very good at doing that. Are you? 🤷‍♀️ I may have kept going on that way if it weren't for some really honest moments I had to have with myself. I'm not sure when I'll be ready to show my progress pictures but I am sure that I'm moving forward! 💜

I think someone in our house is getting excited for their first Christmas🎅🏼🎄. #happyholidays #firstchristmas #ellagrace #9weeksold
And Cor and I are off to the grandparents ✈️ No hubby on this trip! .
.
Does anyone else have separation anxiety from their partner? 😢
.
.
I know some people think that's unhealthy, and maybe to some extent - like if I refused to go because my husband couldn't go. But I think it's actually a good sign. When I don't have him around, it's like I've lost a limb. 💔
.
.
So, I'm a little nervous and anxious to make the trip with Cor alone, but I'm also using this opportunity as a chance to be grateful. I remember so many times in the past, I was the one who had to stay back because I couldn't get the time off from work. So many memories that were never made just so I could collect a minimum wage paycheck. Yikes! 😣
.
.
This year, I'm not missing anything. Including work! I can go here, I can go there. As long as I've got my 📱, work is possible 👍
.
.
I'll miss my main man but I'm excited to finally start making some memories 💮

Hi Bellas,

Armed with my newborn, a tripod and camera, I attempted to film this popular video - day in the life with a new born. I didn't have a camera man...there's no makeup and fancy editing, just a real day in the life with me and my little one. I have a feeling i'm already going to get comments criticizing my new mom skills but I hope you enjoy the honesty and see the real side of life with a new born.

SO behind in sharing this.... but we welcomed little Miss Kinzey Marie into our family on 11/7!💞

She is the perfect little one and he has an older brother and sister that are so smitten! 😍

😯 what on earth happened?! 😂
😯 what on earth happened?! 😂
It’s not every day that I can hit the gym right after I drop my oldest son off at school, but if the opportunity presents itself you better believe I’m taking FULL advantage of it!
.
All I kept thinking today during my workout was “Enjoy the show” 😂 because it’s generally an older clientele at my gym in the mornings.
.
But one gentleman stopped me ➡️waited patiently until my interval was done⬅️ to tell me how impressive my work ethic was, and to keep it up for as LONG as I can!
.
It was the PERFECT reminder for me as to why I work hard everyday on ME, LONGEVITY! I want to be around for a LONG time for my babies, and NOT be a burden on them!

🌟Exercise is the fountain ⛲️ of youth my friends🌟

I had a tough night with Peanut last night. And the thing about having two kids, if one isn’t sleeping, he wakes up the other one up. Then it’s a party 🙆🏼‍♀️ But despite our wild night, and my baby boy not feeling well, he’s been giving me milk drunk smiles all morning. (See my story for a pic) Makes every sleepless night worth it. Christian is just the sweetest pea and such a good baby, he makes me want a 100 more babies - Bryson’s bananas toddler behavior makes me never want a toddler again 🤪🤪🤪 (before I get chewed out, I’m obv kidding - Bryson is also a sweet little boy but this stage is a difficult one and you add in a new baby + teething + the sky is blue...) Even when it’s hard + I look like 🧟‍♀️ today, I wouldn’t trade it for anything 💗 ⁣

Do you know what colic is? 
I had to look it up and realized my new baby had it. Now that we’re mostly past it, I can talk about it. My first baby didn’t have any of this so it’s all new and I’m learning. 
In the evenings she would cry in discomfort where her face was bright red while she clenched her hands and I couldn’t instantly soothe her. 😭😢😭
That was not fun. 
I looked in my gentle babies book and decided to apply a diluted Young Living’s Tummygize to her belly while the wesymptoms were happening. That helped a bit actually!! 🤗
I also looked further into what I could do myself to help with the breastmilk she was receiving from me. In Adelle Davis’ book, Let’s Have Healthy Children, she says “pain labeled as colic can also be caused by intestinal cramping, which results from a deficiency of magnesium, calcium, or vitamin B6.”
Thinking with that I started taking those every day and choosing to drink the magnesium in powder form at the end of the day. 
Well well well, on the days I remembered to take those vitamins, baby didn’t experience colic. 🧐
It’s amazing what you can do by simply researching and finding a natural solution. I was impressed for sure and it was nice to have a happy baby in the evenings. 😍🥰
.
We still deal with a little upset tummy at times still but it’s not painful for her, just a little spit up or vomit, which I know is directly affected by what I eat or drink(esp caffeine). .

Do you know about tongue ties? There seems to be more and more information about ties and how they impact breastfeeding. In the simplest of terms, a tie is excess tissue under the tongue, this can impact your baby’s ability to extend their tongue and compress the breast. It can make breastfeeding painful and cause latching difficulties. Frenectomy is the procedure where the excess tissue is clipped to help with tongue mobility is the tie is causing issues with breastfeeding. Not all #tongueties require clipping and it’s up the parents to decide what they feel is best for their babe! #tonguetiebabies #tonguetiedbaby nursingfriendly #breastfeedingfriendlyfashion #breastfeedinginstyle #breastfeedinginpublic

My little treasure ❤️ has outgrown his baby nest and leveled up to sleep in big boy bed 🤩
I remember and miss the times when he used to sleep on me almost every single nap, he was so tiny... 😩 Now its becoming quite uncomfortable for both of us, he struggles to find a comfy spot on my chest, but I struggle to breath with almost 6kg laying on me... 😅 our fourth trimester will be over in couple weeks and I see how he has gained confidence and wont hold on mama as much but instead will explore his toys and the world... its amazing and I start to get more free time, but also I miss the non-stop cuddles... Honestly, if I wouldn’t need sleep, to do house chores and to shower, I would lay with him 24/7 😅 he is a piece of me after all, my baby Noah ❤️

Je suis en mode #bookworm intense. Il faut dire c’est la saison parfaite pour les journées doudou-chaï-lecture. Je n’ai jamais autant lu de livres sur la maternité et le mieux-être que depuis quelques semaines. Lorsque je me lance dans un projet, je ne le fais pas à moitié, et @lamom.life m’a poussé dans un tourbillon de recherche constante d’information. Je dévore chaque bouquin et les pages s’enfilent à une vitesse folle. J’imagine que c’est normal lorsqu’un sujet nous passionne. 📚 Mon mélange diffusion du jour c’est Stress Away (Lime, cèdre, copaiba, vanille, cannelle et lavande)+ Pamplemousse. Un duo parfait pour les moments relaxes et happy! 🌿 Pour en savoir plus sur mon amour des huiles essentielles, suivez le lien en bio!•

I thought I was prepared. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I thought I knew what to expect. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Little did I know I was about to embark upon the loveliest but biggest challenge of my life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I put sooooo much thought into the birth that preparing for being a mumma completely slipped my mind. I’ll be honest, I foolishly and naively expected this part to come naturally to me. Ive talked previously about taking care of your body and mind and never has that been more true. I’ve never had to work so hard on looking after myself (mentally and physically) in all my life and now I have someone else to look after too. Wow! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Someone explained this time in my life as the fourth trimester because you still need to care and look after yourself (and others of you) as you did in the first, second and third trimester. This is sooo true. I have not done this enough. Anyway, more to come in a blog post soon enough but just know for now that although this picture shows a tiny little being gripping onto me delicately, little B is literally putting his life in my hands and it terrifies and excites me all at the same time ❤️ #love #mum #mumlife #mummy #mummyblogger #parents #parenting #parentlife #mummahood #mumma #littleone #beauty #baby #B #world #love #fourthtrimester #journeyofhappiness #happiness #kllovelife

Wir haben alle sehr sehr wenig an Reserven momentan — übermüdet, wilde Hormonen, viel Arbeit und etwas erkältet. Ein gemütlicher Abend Zuhause, früh ins Bett und morgen siehts dann wieder anders aus, hoffe ich 🙈 #allesnurhalbsowild #malehrlichmamachallenge

Have you ever had a goal or a dream that you wanted so badly it almost hurts!? 🙋🏻‍♀️But then it almost seems too big, too far away or too crazy to accomplish??😬🙈I had a goal that I wanted to be able to work from home and be with my girls. I wanted a job were I could work remotely so we could travel and go on adventures. Where me and Dave could work together. I wanted to find a way to get paid to be active and go on adventures because it’s what I love to do. How in the world could I get paid to do that?!?😂 People always say go after your dreams so there had to be a way right!? I searched and searched and tried a lot of things and failed at a lot of things. Then 17 months ago I found Zyia Active.... An opportunity where you can start your own activewear shop with high quality gear and work from home. Where you don’t have to carry an inventory, you just get to share the clothes and do fun parties. I was a mom with a toddler and a new born with a husband that was gone working 80hr work weeks and we were trying to keep our heads above water with the trials & stresses of life we were facing. I took the leap and started my business. I worked my butt off, hustled and kept going and am so humbled that now not only do I get to be home with my girls but now my husband gets to be home too. We get to work remotely and travel and go on adventures all while getting paid to do it! Get freaking paid to wear leggings 🙌🏼 It’s not your typical 9-5 job. We stepped out of that and gave it up. Sometimes your dreams sound so big and crazy that you shy away from them. But that leads to a life of regret. I don’t want a life that I look back on and say “what if?” I want a life knowing that I gave it my all and went for it! That I chased my dreams and found ways to accomplish them. That’s what Zyia Active is doing for me. I continue to work hard everyday as well as play hard 👊🏼 I’m so grateful to the girl I was 17 months ago that was brave enough to trust herself and never gave up and has lead me to where I am now. I’m excited for the future as this is just the very beginning. If you want something bad enough you HAVE to work hard. You can accomplish anything you put your mind to❤
Have you ever had a goal or a dream that you wanted so badly it almost hurts!? 🙋🏻‍♀️But then it almost seems too big, too far away or too crazy to accomplish??😬🙈I had a goal that I wanted to be able to work from home and be with my girls. I wanted a job were I could work remotely so we could travel and go on adventures. Where me and Dave could work together. I wanted to find a way to get paid to be active and go on adventures because it’s what I love to do. How in the world could I get paid to do that?!?😂 People always say go after your dreams so there had to be a way right!? I searched and searched and tried a lot of things and failed at a lot of things. Then 17 months ago I found Zyia Active.... An opportunity where you can start your own activewear shop with high quality gear and work from home. Where you don’t have to carry an inventory, you just get to share the clothes and do fun parties. I was a mom with a toddler and a new born with a husband that was gone working 80hr work weeks and we were trying to keep our heads above water with the trials & stresses of life we were facing. I took the leap and started my business. I worked my butt off, hustled and kept going and am so humbled that now not only do I get to be home with my girls but now my husband gets to be home too. We get to work remotely and travel and go on adventures all while getting paid to do it! Get freaking paid to wear leggings 🙌🏼 It’s not your typical 9-5 job. We stepped out of that and gave it up. Sometimes your dreams sound so big and crazy that you shy away from them. But that leads to a life of regret. I don’t want a life that I look back on and say “what if?” I want a life knowing that I gave it my all and went for it! That I chased my dreams and found ways to accomplish them. That’s what Zyia Active is doing for me. I continue to work hard everyday as well as play hard 👊🏼 I’m so grateful to the girl I was 17 months ago that was brave enough to trust herself and never gave up and has lead me to where I am now. I’m excited for the future as this is just the very beginning. If you want something bad enough you HAVE to work hard. You can accomplish anything you put your mind to❤
this little one is 8 weeks old today.
8 weeks of pure love and minimal sleep. 
8 weeks of being a mom of 3. 
8 weeks of coming to the realization that I have a daughter and she is exactly what I didn’t know I really needed. ❤️ mi preciosa, Selena.

Something B I G and bittersweet happened this past weekend...literally and figuratively 😂
.
I officially feel like a #hockeymom !
.
I remember the day we bought my Mercedes!  It was my FIRST car that I bought on my own and it represented all of the hard work I had put into my coaching business!  I was quitting my full time job (which came with a company vehicle) to do coaching full time, I needed a car, and that one had been on my vision board for two years!
.
Fast forward 2 years and 2 kids later, and although I loved that car, it was getting too small for our growing family and two labs, so it was time to start looking for something BIGGER and safer in these cold, snowy Wisconsin winters!
.
Let me introduce our “new to us” 2015 Escalade ESV, or “The Bus 🚌 “ as Mason lovingly already refers to it as 😆
.
Once again, just like my last car, it wouldn’t have been possible without this coaching business, that allows me to stay home with my babies and still make a full time income, and the hard work of my amazing team, The Limitless Crew!
.
To be able to contribute to our families finances, so that we can start saving for college already, travel, and buy the things we want just to name a few, while doing something Im passionate about, helping other women succeed in health and fitness and build businesses of their own, is such a blessing that I never take for granted!
.
These moments just remind me how grateful I am that I took that leap of faith a little over 4 years ago and never looked back!
.
And they fuel me to continue to invite you to join me on this journey because you never know what it could be if you don’t take that leap and just start!
.
And to make Beachbody happy I have to say that Team Beachbody doesn’t guarantee any level of success with the coaching opportunity!  Your success is up to you and you have to put in the work!

🌿We have to stop using our children as an excuse-
.
Let them see you taking care of yourself and they’ll learn pretty quickly that this is just part of the routine.
.
Some little snippets of yesterday’s workout- it was sooo far from perfect. Plenty of pauses and interruptions. My program bumped up to 45 minutes for the final week which meant I still had 20 minutes left when Ev woke up from his nap.
.
Could have stopped right there but instead decided to finish it up while he ran around and did his toddler thing- plus he really didn’t mind because he thinks it’s hilarious when I’m running and jumping around all over the kitchen.

•3 weeks• wondering if I was a bit too ambitious deciding to do weekly photos with our boy...😅🤭but I know I’ll look back and thank myself (or at least that’s what I’m telling myself) Last week was our first full week of just the 4 of us at home, and this week daddy went back to work! We are slowly adjusting to our ‘new normal’!! Mason you are fitting in just perfectly here and I’ve even caught a few little smiles after you nurse and fall asleep which remind me that I’m doing alright at this whole mom of 2 thing and we’ve got this. Big brother is completely and totally obsessed with you and is your #1 fan, I’m so thankful you two will have each other as best friends for life! 3 weeks pp and I’m feeling more like myself with being able to get around and do some simple things easily. I’ve learned that my tiredness is nothing that a cup of coffee or 2 can’t fix, it’s only temporary, and to be patient and kind to my myself and my body as it continues to recover and heal. It’s all a little bit of crazy, exhausting, magical and amazing and I feel like it’s already going by so fast! Wouldn’t change it for the world❤️ #MasonRobertLowery #52weeksofMRL

✨Introducing: The Persephone ✨

I think we all love peonies, and I always somehow seem to piss peony season 🙄It just goes by so fast! So when I saw this gorgeous purple peony watercolour print I knew I had to make a sling out it. 
It lets you have peonies all year long, and get that sweet feeling of looking at beautiful flowers every time. 🌸

Well hello there Molly x
Well hello there Molly x
2 weeks old! Technically yesterday but still, where did that go?! You know what the 2 week marker means? It means that paternity leave is over, daddy is back at work and mummy has to suss it all out for herself!! Today is my first day with the 2 kiddies. We’ve been for a long walk and play in the park. Ivy skipped her nap but we’re actually doing just fine and having a lovely day. Wish me luck for the cementing routine. I’ll be honest.... I’m scared! 😂.

While I appreciate that we have four unique, beautiful seasons in Maine, I’m not really a winter gal. It gets dark at 4:30 now, and all I want to do is wrap myself in blankets and sleep. We’ve had our first truly cold days this week and, as the temperature lowers, I feel my brow furrowing and my muscles and my soul contracting, and my mood going sour. Show me some love, my friends—What are your tips for staying sane, energized, and joyful through the winter months?? .

Walking in a winter wonderland here this morning ❄️❄️❄️ We can’t think of a more cozy place to explore the outdoors than along side Mama, snuggled up in a wrap! 🥰 Lovely image: @adventure_awaits_mom —————-

Hey there, cuteness- 6 weeks looks mighty sweet on you! 🦄 Y'all the time is flying so fast, my heart can't take it. 😭 Just yesterday I was screaming at a nurse on the phone "This don't feel like no damn Braxton Hicks, THEEEESE contractions HURT! She was unconvinced, 2 hours later  my water broke. I should call her back "aye, that script about fake contractions hunny, delete all that..." 🙅🏾‍♀️
