I really did enjoy planning it since admittedly, I’m a control freak-perfectionist and when I have something in mind, a vision I suppose, I…

Protecting The Golden Hour(s)

I think we all have an idea about labor and birth— whether we’ve been in the room to witness it or how it’s portrayed on the tv screen. Usually, it’s a laboring woman giving birth while screaming her head off, then out comes the baby, the doctor clamps the cord and they ask the dad…

Herbal Infusions

For the past three weeks I’ve been brewing up my herb medicine on the daily! Herbal infusions are actually pretty simple. Similar to tea, you have your dried herbs and your boiling water, the only thing that changes is the steep time! If I wake up early in the morning I usually steep my infusion 4-6 hours….
