To start off my blogging experience, I wanted to share what made me decide to go on this journey. I have been married to an amazing man for a little over two years, and in December 2014 we welcomed a beautiful baby boy into our family.
In April 2014 I found out that I was pregnant. I had absolutely no clue what the pregnancy process entailed. When I went in for my first appointment, I was scheduled to to see an OBGYN. It ended up that the OBGYN I was supposed to see got sick and one of the hospital’s midwives was filling in for her. I ended up really liking the midwife, but did not know much about the differences between a doctor and a midwife. After a little research and thinking about what I actually wanted from my birthing experience, #1 on my list was a natural childbirth. I chose to go with the midwives at the hospital, and plan for that natural/unmedicated, intimate, and personal experience. We accomplished just that!
Natural childbirth got me thinking about everything else in my life. I love my family and want the best for them, so why was I doing things and using products that would hurt them? That is what brings me here! This blog is following my family on our journey to become healthier, happier, and stronger one step at a time! Join me as I discover natural ways to enjoy “the lil things” in life!
