Ancient Minerals – Magnesium oil for a healthier pregnancy and labor aid

Unknown I wanted to share one of my all time favorite products with you all !! I LOVE my magnesium oil ! Every night before bed I spray a little bit on the bottom of my feet as part of my bedtime ritual .Most of us are deficient in this essential mineral. Some of the signs of deficiency are : Muscle cramps, facial tics, poor sleep, anxiety, headaches and chronic pain. I have my pregnant clients use this oil nightly before bed .. It helps with leg cramps, insomnia, anxiety, back and body pain , fatigue, constipation and stress. By using the oil it is one of the best ways to absorb it into your body. You can also try adding some leafy greens , pumpkin seeds , lentils , dark chocolate, bananas and avocados into your diet as they are all rich in magnesium. I always add a little magnesium oil to my childbirth and prenatal massage oil blend ( not too much because it can burn the skin ) and massage my pregnant and laboring women with it.

Eggplant parmesan to induce labor – Recipe people swear by

I am doing research today on all things labor and I found this recipe on ABC news about this labor inducing eggplant parmesan recipe that claims when pregnant women eat it they go into labor with in 48 hours … Worth a try !! Worse thing that can happen you have a super yummy meal 😉


“Nearly 300 baby pictures decorate Scalini’s old-fashioned Italian restaurant in Cobb County, Ga.
All of the babies pictured on the Italian restaurant wall were born after their mothers ate the Scalini’s eggplant parmigiana. The $9.95 plate of breaded eggplant smothered in cheese and thick marinara sauce is “guaranteed” to induce labor, the restaurant claims.
The eggplant legend began not long after the restaurant opened 23 years ago .
To date, more than 300 of the pregnant women customers who ordered the eggplant have given birth within 48 hours, and the restaurant dubs them the “eggplant babies.” – Good morning America

Eggplant labor inducing parmasen
3 medium sized eggplants
1 cup flour
6 eggs, beaten
4 cups fine Italian bread crumbs (seasoned)
Olive oil, for sautéing
8 cups marinara sauce (recipe below)
1/2 cup Romano cheese (grated)
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
1 1/2 pounds mozzarella cheese (shredded)
2 cups ricotta cheese
Scalini’s Marinara Sauce
2 Tablespoons garlic, chopped
3 Tablespoons olive oil
8 cups tomatoes (fresh or canned), chopped
1 cup onions, chopped
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/8 cup fresh sweet basil, chopped
Pinch thyme
Pinch rosemary
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Cooking Directions
After you wash the eggplant, slice them into 1/4 inch thick slices. You may choose to peel the eggplant before you slice it. However, you may want to leave the skin on since it contains a lot of vitamins.
Place the eggplant slices on a layer of paper towels and sprinkle with a little salt, then cover with another layer of paper towels and hold it down with something heavy to drain the excess moisture. Let them sit for about an hour.
Working with one slice of eggplant at a time, dust with flour, dip in beaten eggs, then coat well with breadcrumbs. Sauté in preheated olive oil on both sides until golden brown.
In baking dish, alternate layers of marinara sauce, eggplant slices, ricotta, parmesan and Romano cheeses, until you fill the baking dish, about 1/8 inch from the top. Cover with shredded mozzarella cheese, and bake for 25 minutes in a 375 degree oven. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
Scalini’s Marinara Sauce
Lightly sauté the onions in olive oil in large pot for a few minutes.
Add garlic and sauté another minute. Add tomatoes and bring sauce to a boil, then turn heat low. Add remaining ingredients, stir, cover and let simmer for one hour, stirring occasionally.

Beaming out love -Teaching your kids to use their love gun

Today got to hang with my little buddy Lucas and his amazing mama … I was there when this awesome little dude was born 6 years ago . Ever since then we have all stayed in touch. I have even taught him some yoga here and there while I planted little seeds of spirituality and consciousness in him . We did a session about a year or so ago that I posted –

Anyway he remembered what we did and asked to do more yoga with me .. How could I resist ????

Todays theme was beaming out love -After doing a few yoga poses together ….

I had him first think of all things and people he loves and the way that this love makes him feel . Next I had him breathe this feeling deep into his heart.



I then had him think of someone who he wanted to send his love to or that needed it the most . I had him envision a beam of light like a laser of love shooting out from his heart right into the person he was thinking about . I told him this was a secret weapon that Could fire out at anytime and anywhere . Image


Well he started shooting it everywhere .. to his mom , his dad , grandfather , his dog , a VERY VERY long list of friends and then we got to a person who he said wasn’t very nice to him . He asked me what to do about him ….  ( the same person came up again in the last blog I wrote when we did yoga last ) I said , ” the meanest people need love the most so beam your love from your heart to him like you are shooting him with a “love gun ” – Building a solid foundation for you and your children to grow from


Testimonial from new AWESOME mama Becky … #birthdoula

Testimonial from new AWESOME mama Becky ... #birthdoula

It is hard to express in words the difference Lori made in my labor. Without Lori, I know it would not have been so beautiful and not to sound cliché but “perfect”. I love my partner, but he had no idea what to do and nor did I…and thankfully Lori was right by my side through every contraction and every unknown. Without Lori, I would have been scared and alone, instead I laughed up until delivery. Yes it was the most difficult thing I ever done, but with Lori by my side, my angel entered the world in the most peaceful way. I wish my words conveyed how thankful I am to have had her with me. She will always be a very special part of our lives.
