Life is full of ups and downs, the only way to make the journey worthwhile is if you enjoy the good and learn from the bad.

Women want connection as they go through pregnancy & postpartum. (well all of the time really, but these stages of life can be daunting and isolating at times)⠀
I often felt lonely, lost and overwhelmed in my postpartum journey. You have so many thoughts and you worry that you are the only one feeling a certain way or in a specific situation. ⠀
I wish I had met this incredible soul earlier and really dug into all that she offers. Jennifer is a postpartum doula, lactation educator & runs @sacred_nest here in Calgary. She organizes so many free events for Mamas and provides the most open, gracious and supportive place to come, share and feel you're feels. ⠀
Jen is a light in this city and I am so happy to have met her and have shared some incredible conversations with her. ⠀
I highly recommend her to all Mamas who are struggling, looking for support & a sense of community. She offers a number of great workshops, classes, groups and can connect you to anyone you need in the city. ⠀
Follow her page on Facebook as well as on Instagram for online support & #momlife .⠀

* What does my nurse think about me bringing a doula? *
. #momshaming You know it’s a thing. And you fear the consequences of the judgement brought upon you for every decision you make during pregnancy, labor, birth, and beyond. And your L&D nurse is just another person who’s there to judge you, right?
Wrong. “Notes from Your Nurse” is a new blog series from adora birth + wellness to help you get acquainted with your #Calgary labor and delivery team before you arrive at the hospital.
Learn more about logistics, patient management, and mom judgement (*it’s not happening as often as you think) from a real, local, anonymous labor and delivery nurse. Link in bio!
😂😂😂You know you’ve all had this cross your mind in the middle of the night! Damn worthless nipples... why do men even have them? . . .

I haven't had any real nesting urges so far in my pregnancy. Haven't created a nursery, haven't bought any clothes, haven't been any more obsessive with cleaning than I usually am. I was kind of thinking it just wouldn't really hit me. But this came in the mail today.... And right away I got the overwhelming "I am NOT READY!!" feeling. Immediately started cleaning and focusing on what I need to do have my home ready for this baby. In reality, I know I'm okay; I have a crib, some clothes, some blankets, some diapers and a carseat but holy cow, the nesting has hit. Wish me luck. What was the one thing you just "needed" to have or get done before baby arrived?

I'm officially a bad cat mom..... but I was forced into that label but this little jerk. Ever since his outside snowstorm adventure he's been trying to escape more and more - even taking to jumping off our balcony! So last night I guess he got out without us noticing... And he spent all night outside! All night! He was meowing at the basement door this morning and now he's sitting on the couch, looking all smug and proud of himself. Do I just let him go outside? I know he comes back now and he didn't get eaten by coyotes so he must have half a brain when it comes to danger. What do I do? Going back to bed now to try and let my body fight off this lovely throat/sinus infection that Darcy passed to me. All animals are inside, I checked.

When I’m grumpy, people who know me best ask if I need coffee or a snack ... or both #hangry

Am I guilty of always using this pose? Yes.
Am I sorry about it? No 😏😏😏
Can you blame me - every babe looks so freakin’ presh like this. It captures how tiny they are, and presents all their delicious features like their little toes and hands and squishy face. I’m obsessed, if you couldn’t tell.

G I V E A W A Y! Congratulations @hungrycoupleyyc 🖤 Like this pic & tag who you'd want to bring to the advanced screening of Mia & the White Lion this weekend!
If you haven't heard of it, it's a GORGEOUS movie, filmed in South Africa. The story is about a young girl named Mia and the bond she develops with Charlie, a white lion cub. When Mia uncovers a secret that puts Charlie in danger, she sets out on an incredible journey across to find a sanctuary for her friend.
Mia & the White Lion is being released on April 12th, but I'm giving away two tickets to an advanced screening on April 6th! It's such a heartwarming story and I cannot wait to watch it myself. Head to my stories for a trailer of the movie #MiaandtheWhiteLion_Ambassador#ad
