Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it ~ Rumi.

#loveislove

The love of a mother comes into you, and you are her.
.
.
The one that can move mountains, lift cars, run on empty, sacrifice, love without limits.
.
.
The one that can withstand more pain, pressure, opening, intensity than the mind can comprehend.
.
.
The one that can respond, again and again at all hours. The one that can cradle and rock until your bones are sore. The one that can push through the pain, and stretching and engorgement and demand and thirst and then the commitment and service of breastfeeding, or the surrender of bottle feeding.
.
.
The one that can question and let go, and guide and love unconditionally. The one that can get out of her own way to let them blossom.
.
.
The love of a mother comes into you, and you are her, the one that can. .

Who is hanging out to meet their babe right now? 😍 👶 .
.
Comment below 👇🏼 how many guess weeks left? Or if your babe/s are already born - what gestation were they born at?
.
.
Mine were 40+15 (yep 42+1) and 40+2 👌
.
.
Ps. Most babies don’t come on their Estimated Due Date - and so it’s probably more helpful to work with a guess month when talking to fam and friends - “our babe is coming some time in June or July” 😉 ‘Normal’ gestation is anywhere from 37-42 weeks - such a big variation, so don’t expect your babe to come on any set day (although they may surprise you)!
.
.
PPS. These last weeks are so precious - you will never get this time again. The time before you knew them... soak it up... don’t rush it mama. And drink allllll the hot tea/coffee and sleep - do it for me! 😂

Only when: .
.
🌙 we understand that birth is normal and in most cases NOT medical .
.
🌙 we know our human rights .
.
🌙 we are more afraid of unnecessary interventions than the practitioners offering them .
.
🌙 we equip ourselves with a strong birth advocate .
.
🌙 we aren’t afraid to ask questions, say NO, ask for more time, ask for alternatives .
.
🌙 we trust our body and our baby MORE than we trust an outside authority .
.
🌙 we are okay to ask for an alternative care provider if something just feels off .
.
🌙 we know what birth can be like when undisturbed .
.
🌙 we become patient enough to wait for nature’s timing .
.
🌙 we stand up for ourselves and REPORT incidences that are disrespectful, include bullying or traumatised us in any way .
.
🌙 we share GOOD birth experiences freely. We celebrate women. We change the narrative. We stop being afraid of birth.
.
.
Then, and only then, public birth environments will become a place of safety and support, rather than a gauntlet to run.
Supply and DEMAND ladies, nothing changes if we don’t demand it to.

Nursing a toddler.... beautiful, biologically normal and both a great sacrifice and great gift.

Their safe place for as long as they need, and as long as it works for you both 🌙

On the weekend I witnessed palpable love, and I had the absolute honour of capturing it.
.
.
My first wedding as the official photographer, and I’ve gotta say, it was an absolute stunner 👰💕
.
.
I’m now available for small weddings, elopements and engagement shoots. Contact me for availability and pricing 🌙💐

Not that I needed another reason to love doTerra - but they gave me one!
.
.
New exclusive baby range - limited packs avail and these will sell QUICK!
.
.
Gorgeous baby wash, lotion and nappy cream 😍
.
.
PLEASE don’t use dangerous ingredients on your precious babies - most commercial/store bought stuff is simply unsafe (parabens, talc, sulfates, PEG, mineral oil). Yep, I’m talking about the most common baby range used (that age old one that I shall not name - you know the one - it’s in hospitals, chemists, supermarkets and given to new mamas under the marketing of being ‘gentle’ despite being toxic?!) When we know better we can do better.
.
.
Also - this would be such a beautiful baby shower gift for a special mama in your life 🎁 ALL mamas need natural tools to care for their families. This is the perfect time to start going green 🍃 .
.
Contact me to open your wholesale account and order the baby range pack, or start with a larger enrolment kit which waves your $35 account opening fee.
.
.
These prices are in USD but are available to all countries where doTerra is available (including us Aussie mamas).
