Connecting Body & Breath – Guest Blog

Welcome to Motherhood!   This is one of the most wonderful and crazy adventures you will experience.  At this point, you may already be experiencing some of the Motherhood ‘symptoms’ that aren’t discussed much.  The hormones are wild, sleep is a very different activity than it once was, and life as a whole is different.

Happy 3rd Birthday Evelyn

Guest Blogger: I’m Not a Natural Mom

We have a special treat for you today. Meet Rachel Harrell who runs The Naptime Projects , a blog dedicated to end the mom-shaming and helping moms take back their life one nap-time at a time. She enjoys building things from pallets, date nights with her husband, Chris, and playing with her baby boy, Will. I don’t love motherhood. I don’t adore being a stay at home mom. I love my baby boy dearly, but I’m not a natural mom. Patience has never been a strength of mine, and I’m not an overly compassionate person. Both are extremely necessary for being …
