The postpartum period is a #yin time, where the #hormonal and energetic landscape is reminiscent to post menopause or #menstruation. It's a time of receptivity and transformation. It's full of unknowns and unseens. A true heroine's journey, with ...
Beyond words really. @magamamas has supported me from pre-conception all the way through to the current #postpartum journey that continues to unfold. During this time I've also been able to witness her process of writing a book on #the4thtrimester (released ...
Tonight I'm really feeling for all the babies born at this time on #earth. They bring so much for us. Yet, they are born into a world that doesn't fully match their biology, the genetic blue print of all the ...
Rare food post because #4monthwakefulness. Sleep deprivation is a huge challenge #postpartum. Lack of sleep can leave the body craving #sugar and lead to problems regulating blood sugar throughout the day. #energycrash. The #glutenfree chocolate cake that @hausero made last ...
Rare selfie because today I shaved part of my hair off. Because sometimes when a big internal shift happens, the external has to change too. Because #motherhood calls me to be more myself every day. Because both // and. 🔻🔻🔻
So if you're following along you realize it's taking me a long time to read #wildmind in its entirety. Because #newborndays. But here it is again ::: "We're all in recovery from Western civilization. Sooner or later, we each must ...
All giggles at our appointment with @bloomingchiro this morning. Dr. Jane has supported our growing family so much, both during my #pregnancy and #postpartum. I'm grateful to have a chiropractor I can trust so close to home. Being a "chiro ...
Summer is coming to an end but honestly for me it feels like winter is ending. The #postpartum period in a woman's life is a time to dive deep and surrender to the death process that accompanies #birth. It's a ...
Nearly 3 months #postpartum and I'm not sure if it feels like 3 days or 3 years. Oh sweet Theo, so much is unraveling within my myself in your presence. #postpartumrecovery #motherhood #mystery #wildwoman #jaima #rewilding #shadowdance #motherhoodrising #wombwisdom #wombmedicine
Dropping in from the #postpartum portal and breaking my own rule for a hot minute...not to say look at my baby but rather to catch your attention and say look at new mothers. So often after a baby arrives all ...
Good morning #ojai. You've always had my #heart. 💚☀️💙
Some books I really have to take my time with. Wild Mind by Bill Plotkin is one of those types of books for me. 🔻🔻🔻 "Life is full of inevitable losses, including the lives of our loved ones and, eventually, ...
Today I feel stronger and more capable than ever. This may seem like a radical idea but #postpartum can be a portal into a new found level of strength and vitality. It's challenging and in the early #newborn days it ...
Birth snapshot #5 🔻🔻🔻 It feels right to share a final glimpse of my #birthstory on this #solstice day. #childbirth is, or at least can be, a peak erotic, life giving experience. It mirrors the full energetic expression of #summer, ...
Be wildly devoted to someone or something.

At the same time, forget about control.
Allow the Beloved to be itself and change.
