My journey to health got real when my husband and I wanted to start a family. A short-lived career in journalism took a toll on my health and therefore, I committed to some small but HUGELY important changes in my life. I wanted to get pregnant, have a healthy pregnancy and more importantly learn the tools to raise a healthy family.

Here you will find ways that I took control of my health including: preparing for my fertility journey, how I did my best to maintain a healthy pregnancy and my birth stories — two of the most amazing experiences in my life!

Pregnancy is such an incredible journey and blessing. Many of the common complaints about pregnancy can be avoided when the body is in a healthy and happy place. A mindful pregnancy will also allow your body and mind to bounce back after pregnancy and feel well enough to take care of your family.
