When you've been delivering babies all day!! 😩😩 #L&;Dnurse #laboranddeliverynurse #RN #12hrs #blessedπŸ™πŸΌ

Now that I have my first shift scheduled, an official badge, and paperwork signed I feel like it's real enough to say... I have officially been hired into my dream job of being a Labor and Delivery nurse!! I'm am so excited to start this journey and can't wait to see where this will take me!

Happy National Nurse Day to all the badass nurses like me!! Clearly my patient's husband really appreciates us! πŸ˜‚#CatchingBabies #LaborAndDeliveryNurse

It had always been a dream of mine to become a labor and delivery nurse. When I got the job I couldn't believe I was gunna be paid to deliver babies...Best job in the world right?! It really is the best job in the world, but man did I not know how thrilling and exhausting this job would be.
All trust goes into me, a complete stranger, to take care of a laboring mother and her unborn baby. This job gets you realllll close with your patients. All shame goes out the door when your in labor and you make best friends pretty quickly with your mamas! 😜 So many amazing, exciting, gross, hilarious, tender moments happen on my shifts and that's what makes this job so unique and awesome. Being a labor nurse often entails coming home after a 13+ hour night shift and not being able to sleep because all you can think about is your patient, their baby, what you would have changed about the delivery, what you forgot to chart, or if you were your patients best advocate...
Some shifts I have to be the nurse for a mama who lost her sweet baby and I'm the one who has to take her thru the dreaded journey of delivery.
Other shifts I get to be the nurse to a mama who has struggled with infertility for years and finally gets to have her miracle baby.
Other nights I get to witness adoptive parents anxiously waiting the delivery of the new baby in the next room that will finally be theirs. Yet I have to help the birth mom deliver a baby she knows she is giving up.
More often than not though I get to coach moms in pushing and witness their reaction as their baby gets placed on their chest.

I get to be the nurse to surrogates, first time moms, grand multips, teen moms, AMA mamas, moms who didn't know they were pregnant until they were in labor, pts with overbearing families, recovering drug addict mamas, homeless moms, and a lot of really normal and adorable moms. There truly is never a dull moment in the labor world and that's what I love!

Being a labor nurse is exhausting and challenging but boy is it worth it. I feel blessed every day that I get this job as my career and that I'm lucky enough to witness the miracle of life..as my job! Truly nothing better. Happy NURSES week!

Well I can finally say it's official that I was offered on the spot and I accepted a position in Labor & Delivery!!! I'm so excited to finally start this new journey and nothing better than to start in the department I've always wanted 😍 #babies #laboranddeliverynurse #newposition

This shirt πŸ‘‡πŸΌsays it all πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Today was day 4️⃣of this πŸ’₯mind blowingπŸ’₯program! We added in some core workouts (which my abs will hate me later for). With each and every day that goes by...
I get a little more excited 😝
push a little harder πŸ’ͺ🏼
sweat πŸ’¦a little more!
Not to mention this meal plan is πŸ’£ and super EASY to follow!
BEFORE I LACKED energy, ate ALL the carbs πŸ•πŸͺ🍞, and HATED getting up and moving to workout. I was pure lazy.
I have confidence, am happy, full of energy, and motivated to keep moving forward. Not to mention my ACCOUNTABILITY group keeps me on my toes with all of their support and motivation ❀️. Cravings started to creep back in last night and I just wanted to binge eat but I reached out to one of my friends and stayed strong. I didn't give in and I'm proud of that! The scale is moving ⬇️ and I am feeling the best I have EVER felt before!
If YOU have felt the same way I have before and are ready to make a change, I want to help you! I want you to achieve your health and fitness goals. I want you to SUCCEED! Send me a pm or drop a comment below!
It would be selfish of me not to share what this amazing opportunity is doing for me and many others! ❀️ #confidence #workingonme

Insecurities try to take control of our life. But motherhood and this journey to health and a better me has made me realize there's something more. There's so much more to life then worrying about what others think of you or what your wearing or not having any makeup on or not being a size 0. Like why did I let that consume me? I believe in body positivity {that doesn't mean I don't get hard on myself time to time}. And with that it doesn't mean I don't have insecurities, it just means I stopped letting them take control over me day to day and take control of my life. I have a beautiful child, husband, home, life, I can't be worrying about if I have designer pants on or if people are going to call me out for not wearing makeup, like get real πŸ™…πŸΌ. Don't get me wrong I love me a pair of lululemons πŸ‹ but it doesn't make me a better person πŸ‘‰πŸ» I make myself a better person, not my pants, not my makeup, not my car, not my hair. I never ever thought I would get to a place in my life where I would be happy with myself and my life and my body, but it's here and I am and you can be too ✌🏻. It's taken a lot of time and work, work on myself, work on the πŸ’©πŸ’© crappy stuff we don't want to dig into, but it's worth it. I'm coming out on top and I will continue to shine, #nomakeup and all.

Painting by Shiloh Sophia "Listening"
Ever wrestle with a really difficult decision? Ever invest tremendous time and energy into something just to walk away from it? Ever desire something so strongly only to realize the path you are walking isn't the best way for you? Or the right time?
This is what I am experiencing. Trying so hard to listen to my intuition, listen to divine wisdom through prayer. Trusting that God cares about not only the destination but the journey that takes me there.
For many nebulous and poorly defined reasons, more emotional than practical (I'm a feeler more than a thinker and am deeply intuitive), I have decided to withdraw from my midwifery program. I am not an anxious person by nature but have been battling with this choice for months. Hear me, I am tremendously passionate about midwifery and I. Cannot. Wait. to start formal training in Grad School to be a CNM. I just want to make sure the path there is in the best time and place (and financial considerations are thrown in there as well) for me and my family and my community. In the meantime, I'm still learning every day, gaining experience and growing my passion in multiple ways, and continuing to serve women. I have the heart and soul of a midwife, that is certain. The credentials will follow. Shoring up my spiritual walk with God, investing time in the lives of my young kids, getting my health in tip top shape, saving money to pay for school- this is the "preconception counseling" I need to follow before the gestation of my midwifery career. Ok, super corney comparison, but there it is!
What considerations did you prioritize when deciding when/where to further your education?

Welcome to my Zoo! I mean, my home gym! πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆI do miss my gym days & group classes. Even though it's only 5 min away, sometimes it just wasn't convenient to go. Fast forward almost 5 years. Home workouts are what work for me now. And the crazy part? I've gotten better results at home (for MUCH cheaper, too!). I've got an amazing, supportive community of women working out "with" me, something that was missing at the gym. So maybe the gym is your thing? Awesome! Maybe you need a change in workouts. Maybe you need the convenience. Maybe you need the community. Maybe you need the focus on nutrition that we focus on, too. Hit me up. Join my gym...it's fun, it's cheap, it's supportive, no commute, & tons of workouts for everyone, at every level! 😘

BEES! 🐝🐝🐝 Humans have been benefiting from bees and their nourishing superfoods since prehistoric times. It’s not talked about enough the amazing effects bee products can have on your health! Im new to this too ✌🏻. I actually was listening to a podcast 🎢 recently and it caught my attention. It was called β€œWhat is Propolis and Why Are Bees Good For Our Health?” With Carly Stein from Beekeeper’s Naturals 🐝. I listened to the podcast and it was super interesting but I didn’t do anything with the information after that. I kept googling bee pollen and propolis but didn’t purchase it or go forward with it. Then I got sick. I got this nasty cold 🀧 this week. So my friend @erinmcginleyfitness was like you need to try Bee Propolis and I was like oh em geee, I just heard about this on my podcast @beekeepers_naturals, its a sign from the universe 🌈. So I went to Whole Foods yesterday and got some. My cold was fierce yesterday 😷and I took the recommended dosage and then took it again when I woke up this morning and my cold is totally on the mend πŸ™ŒπŸ». Which to me is CRAZY. Its crazy how we can heal ourself πŸ€•without crazy medications πŸ’Š. I have never liked taking medication or things that will alter the way I feel or hurt my stomach. But taking natural things like bee propolis or turmeric or ginger to help heal your body naturally is the WAY TO GO! Obviously if you need medication for certain diseases or illnesses I totally understand and agree. I believe in Western medicine because of my profession but I think if you can heal yourself with food or natural remedies it's best to start there. Preventative care is huge and not enough people take it seriously until they are ill. If you take care of your body by putting good things into it now you'll set yourself up for better health in the long run. I am not saying everyone go out and buy this bee propolis 🍯🐝 but I'm just saying take care of your body, listen to it when it's sick, take measures when you're sick that don't necessarily mean medications or antibiotics. Want more info on preventative care and healing yourself naturally? Reach out πŸ’ŒπŸ“²πŸ’» that's the first step! πŸ‘―
