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.

– All you new moms and moms to be – Here is an Affirmation for the day

 - All you new moms and moms to be here is an Affirmation for the day NEWS FLASH ……. There is no such thing as perfect ! As long as you are trying to reach it you will never be happy or content in your own being . Something to ponder …. What or who are you competing with ? What is this image of perfection you are trying to live up to ? Is this image  even real or realistic for you ? There is no right or one way to do anything but there is a right and perfect way for you , your children and family . When you are able to find what works for you , then you will find perfection in your own individuality and uniqueness . I can look at some of my dearest friends / clients and think they are truly amazing moms in the way that they do it that works for them . If I tried to do what they do and use some of them as my bar of perfection .. I would never live up to it as they are totally different then me . They have strengths and abilities that I  just don’t have  . Just like I have gifts and ways about me that they lack in certain areas . If I used them as my bar of perfection and compared myself to them it would reek havoc on my self esteem making me feel not good enough . I can’t tell you how often I see and hear this from my clients … So and so lost her weight right away .. so and so nursed until her baby was one , so and so has the perfect marriage , kids and home …. Ladies , what we see on the surface isn’t always whats really going on behind closed doors . Stop comparing yourself to others , connect with yourself and find what is right for you instead of what society , your family  and friends says is right . Find your own perfection from your  authentic place of truth in who you are . – Building a solid foundation for both you and your children to grow from

Sociable garlic … SOOOOOOOOOO Good for pregnancy !!!



I have been trying to get my people for years to eat garlic while they are pregnant and they look at me like I am crazy ! The very thought of it makes them cringe just thinking about it . I can’t believe I totally forgot about  sociable garlic capsules !! I use to take them everyday for years to help with my circulation and to help regulate my blood sugar levels when I lived in Aspen . The brand I like is called Kyolic and when you take them your won’t burp them up or smell bad .

Here are the reasons I like taking or eating garlic in pregnancy – 

It boosts your immune system and helps fight off illness and has natural antibiotic qualities

Is an antibacterial ,anti-fungal and antiviral

Reduces blood pressure ( great for later in pregnancy to help prevent preeclampsia )

Blood thinner ( great to take on bed rest or before , during and after flying to help prevent blood clots )

regulates blood sugar ( great for preventing or healing gestational diabetes )

Is an anti inflammatory

Is a natural decongestant ( great for pregnancy stuffiness , allergies or the common cold )

Helps with shortness of breath ( when baby makes it hard to breathe during month 7/8 of pregnancy )

Helps your body absorb iron better

Increases circulation and blood flow

Prevents cancer – Building a solid and healthy foundation for both you and your child to grow from 




ATTENTION ALL MOMS AND MOMS TO BE .. BEST PREGNANCY, BIRTHING AND PARENTING ADVICE EVER !!!!!! Your baby has grown , developed and has lived inside of you for 9 full months …. just as you know when something feels off or not right with you , your baby is part of you and you will sense the same in and for them . Remember this when you get bombarded with tons of advise and projections from others . A mother knows best ! Especially when she is in a calm , centered , grounded , peaceful and in a mindful state. When one can get in this space she will to be able to hear her own voice and truth of what FEELS is right .

“You’ve always had the power, my dear. You’ve had it all along” – Glinda, the Good Witch


Your baby feels everything you are feeling … Let your baby simmer in the energy of love , peace and joy for 9 months instead of stress , anxiety, anger and hate .. Attitude is a choice .

7 yoga poses to help with fertility

7 easy fertility poses ( molly sims and I did together last week )


Molly cover photo

Ladies, mommas and mommas to be, being a mother is super important to me and I am here to share any little secret I can with you!  As you all know, in the past I’ve written about everything from fertility smoothies to acupuncture to dolls in order to increase my fertility. Everyday of course I still drink Lori Bregman‘s fertility smoothie, which is to die for! I worked with Lori through my first pregnancy and here we are again!  

Last week, during the new moon Lori and I got together to do Fertility Yoga! It was AH-mazing! I love, love, love yoga and now that I know it doesn’t only benefit my health, but it can also help promote fertility … I’m totally OB-sessed. I know this time in a woman’s life can be so, so, so stressful, so ladies yoga is a great way to just take a moment out of your day to relax and calm down. Fertility yoga especially is meant to increase blood flow in the pelvic area, as well as lessen anxiety during this difficult time. We also used these great oils and a fertility candle that you can buy at this AH-dorable shop on Sunset, Objets d’ & Spirit or you can always make your own at home! So here is a step-by-step of my entire fertility flow!

All of these awesome poses work to relax and calm your nervous system, which I think every busy woman needs sometimes. They also improve and increase circulation as well as blood flow in your reproductive organs all helping to promote fertility. After your flow, you should feel relaxed and your mind should be clear. Lori believes this is the best time to light your fertility candle and call on your baby. Remember ladies, think positively and good things will come to you!!
