2 years ago I became a mom.
A role that hadn’t crossed my mind until I met Nathan.
From that moment on, absolutely everything shifted. Priories. Ideals. Life. Love.
Since then a lot has changed.
Body. Mind. Soul…Bank account.
It’s not easy.
I’m thankful for my village. My family. My friends.
I’m blessed with new friends from this part of my life. Friends I share a different piece of me with, than any other kind of friendship.
The things I care about now are different. I feel more passion now than I have before.
I love this life and everything it comes with.
I’m grateful for a husband who shares all the responsibilities – if not(significantly)more.
The late nights. The early mornings. The dishes. The messes. The tiffs. The diapers. The extra weight. All taken in stride.
It’s all worth it for this kind of Love.
I just wish I could win the lottery to pay for all these damn kids.
I’m a wife and mom of a four year old and a set of two-year-old twins, (in)fertility warrior, community builder, supporter, friend, connector, counselor, advocate, doula, coach, Licensed Master of Social Work based out of Manhattan.
After embarking on my own path to becoming a mother, something in me shifted. My passions, my identity, my purpose all took on new meanings. I realized how lonely it can be for those without community, support, or someone in their corner to guide them. From that moment I realized I wanted to help women setting out on this chapter of their lives-- whether they are struggling with infertility (as I did), pregnancy challenges, miscarriage or infant loss, life as a new mom, or all the spaces in between. I am particularly passionate about normalizing infertility, postpartum challenges, pressures associated with social media, breastfeeding and everyday struggles balancing life with infants and toddlers. I aim to add humor and my own personal reality to these and other parenting topics with the hope that it makes women understand they are not alone. I am in the trenches with you and we’re all just doing our best. My best, your best, is good enough.
