The One Thing That’s Made Me Happier This Year

As 2018 kicked off, I wanted to make some changes when it came to my schedule and work load. I was working too much, often spending 12 hours in front of my computer a day, and feeling anxious from the moment I woke up. Though I thought I was generally happy, I knew this wasn’t the healthiest way to live. And though I was getting a ton of work done, at what price?

It was about that time that my husband suggest I start taking a couple hours “off” in the middle of the day. As someone who used to eat lunch in front of the computer

I Encapsulated My Placenta, Here’s Why

“Encapsulate your placenta? Are you insane?” was the reaction I was expecting from most people when I divulged that I planned to consume my placenta after birth, but to my surprise, most people were supportive and curious. And if they hadn’t been, that was fine, too. This is my body and these are my decisions and what works for one may not work for others, especially when it comes to birth. But for me, for meeee, placenta encapsulation was intriguing and it was something I wanted to do.
