Here is an intro of the guest post I wrote over at Peony And Pine Company. They are a fabulous, local, PNW business, and I was so excited when they accepted my submission as a part of their blog.
I Quite Pursuing My Dream Career And Let God Hire Me
I’ve been slowly remembering pieces of childhood songs my mom used to sing to me. I tend to be able to only sing the chorus and maybe one verse over and over, but my boys think it’s the whole song. Ones like, “Rock-a-bye baby in the tree top, when the wind blows, the cradle will rock…” then I think the cradle falls but I just sing that line about 5 times in a row. Its amazing how natural those songs come to me, like I just heard them, yet it was so very long ago that they were ingrained in my soul.
The soul of a mother is built with a purpose by our Creator, long before a child is born. Those of us who are called to be mothers are created with special gifts for our families and children..

I have a very specialized program for postpartum mamas looking to heal, nourish and regain their strength. I really struggled healing after my first child, and even went through pelvic floor physical therapy for weeks to manage scar tissue that developed from tearing. I have experience studying nutrition, physical therapy and I taught Pilates, so I’ve put together a program I wish I would’ve followed from the beginning.
A program that first heals your body through specialized movements and nourishing foods. Foods are so essential to your body finding the nutrients it needs to put itself back together again. Your postpartum body needs special care in the first 4-6 weeks where you focus on regaining strength and properly fueling your body for breastfeeding.
This program then moves you into gaining physical fitness back. I will never forget the first time I tried to go for a run around 12 weeks postpartum after my first baby. I didn’t do any strength work, so I was literally jelly. I had lost all my extra fat and my previous muscle. So depressing. I was barely able to start gaining it back before I got pregnant and sick again with my second. I’ve learned so much on maintaining muscle postpartum through a unique diet and Pilates routines. I walk you through all of this too!
Lastly, I take you into a workout program to combine with a meal plan to help you lose the baby weight, not your milk!! !
I created this program to be affordable and realistic for new mams!
