Hi- I'm Jules and my son has just joined a nanny-share/co-op that I'm really excited about. We are looking for a few new families to join the share that is operating in the Hyde Park and Eastwoods neighborhoods this fall. The share has been in operation for 9 years. We have 2 excellent experienced and loving nannies (1 who has been in share since the beginning, and the other is new as of last year). Both nannies are CPR/first aid certified and primarily speak Spanish to the babies. The nannies come to host homes M-F from 830-430 and care for a maximum of 5 babies each day, ranging from 3 months to 2 years. The cost is $80 per day ($70 if you host). Some families use it as full time care and others just 1 or 2 days a week, but we do each commit to a schedule (certain days) for the entire semester. And if you are looking for part-time care, we have openings in the afternoon, 12:30-4:30 for $50. And the best part of the share is the nannies! So sweet and loving to our little ones. Email the share at [email protected] for more info. Thanks!

Operating as usual

Wake up your buns, mamas! 🍑🌞 Strong butt = a happy life 😎 It will help your lower back and hip pain and strength your TA abs, too.

Easy breezy 1 min. strength work you can do in the midst of your busy day. I do these during any idle time, 30-50 reps, 1-3x/day or just randomly.

Grab a sturdy chair. Inhale on the sit/dip. Exhale on the stand-up, and squeeze the butt at the top. Engage your core the whole time, and an extra squeeze of the lower belly at the top on the exhale. Try to keep your back flatish and posture tall. Feel for the back of skull, scapulae, and sacrum align. Feet firmly rooted and spreading. Arms by the side or prayer hands at heart.

Feel strong 💪🏼 and powerful, mama.

Any strength work will support your posture, yoga practice, life, and just help you feel better in your body, thus feel better in your life. For more strength tips and programs see my girl @lifestylebylindsay

Sex. In pregnancy. With an increase in hormones, you may be feeling more sexual and in the mood, mama. You may feel extra sexy and desirable. Or, you may feel the opposite bc you’re too darn tired and feel too big and uncomfortable to get it on. There’s no right or wrong to your experience. If you have a partner they will adapt either way 😉 Solo sex is healthy and hot, too.

Comment below👇🏼How’s it going in the sheets? Are you a hot and bothered mama/best sex ever, or ‘Do you have a headache’ again/roll over mama? 😂

I already know what is going on w you postpartum moms so no post for you. Your biological need and drive for sleep supersedes your drive for sex. So get your sleep. Sex will come back when you have the brain space for it, and your brain is more relaxed. We all know the most important organ for woman for sexual drive is between the ears. A relaxed brain 🧠 = relaxed mood for sex.

Note, if you’re nursing, estrogen is low, so sexual desire may be low, too. High levels of prolactin can keep you from ovulating and acts like a natural birth control. Nature’s design so you have a little space bt kids. But, not always! You can get pregnant. If you do, great, that soul really needed to come through and is on schedule 😊

If you’re in a sex slump and frustrated, yoga will help you relax your brain and frayed nerves, mama. It will also bring blood flow to the pelvic floor muscles. See a pelvic floor PT if there is pain w sex. Getting the kids out of the house helps A LOT, too. Physical and mental SPACE for sex. I know challenging w covid rn..but, kids are a really big turn off 😂

This post was brought to you by Scorpio season (starts today), Scorpio in Mercury, my sun in Scorpio. Therefore, we are going to be thinking and talking sex 😉 topics that may make you squirmy. Scorpio energy is sexual, emotional depth and intensity, wants to connect through intimacy, penetrating, investigative. Rules the genitals, of course 🤣 (Sorry, if I was all over the place in this post. Brain 🧠 mushy today).

(More astrology posts to come to help you Know and understand your kids, your mothering style, and navigate midlife transitions and dark nights of the soul)

Get that medical language out of your head. I hate this label. You are the perfect age for your pregnancy. Don’t let the medical world scare you. If it is meant to be it will be. I’m a firm believer in that.

I had my second baby at 38. I felt young and strong. In no way did I feel ‘geriatric’.

Yes, at 40 and 42 I had miscarriages. (Our chance of miscarriage increases and an increase in fetal chromosome abnormalities w age). My body and hormones were moving towards perimenopause at this point and not able to sustain a pregnancy on its own. These ‘losses’ worked out for the best. But, I still didn’t feel ‘geriatric’ nor would ‘blame’ the miscarriages on me being ‘too old’. And, even if you argue I was ‘too old’ to have a healthy low risk pregnancy, using harmful language like this sends a message to women and their bodies that it is their fault for being pregnant >35, they are being irresponsible or risky, they should feel shame and guilt, they ‘should’ know better. Women have enough negative messaging to deal with! Leave our age alone.

Your age is beautiful, perfect, just right.

>35 moms, go have your babies guilt free of agism labels and remarks.

We all know you are strong AF physically and mentally 💪🏼so age doesn’t matter.

3 yoga poses for your #lowerbackpain mama. One of the biggest complaints of pregnancy is lower back pain. You’re not alone. Make sure you’re always engaging in the stretching. No Gumby bodies 🤪 Especially in pregnancy, when the joints and ligaments are more lax aka stretch easier - that sounds great for a lot of us, but it can lead to injury and more pain if you’re over stretching when the pregnant body is already relaxing (relaxin hormone) from the moment of conception in preparation to open for birth.

Try these yoga poses to relief lower back pain and remember to breathe 🙂Yoga block is handy but not necessary.

1. Straddle forward fold with soft bent knees and pelvic circles to release the lower back. Keep the back body broad. Elbows point out to the sides helps w that. Press feet down and keep legs engaged. Let there be good flow.

2. Straddle forward fold like a wide legged downward facing dog. Arms out long and hands on block or floor. Take your butt back! As if you’re putting it on a wall behind you and resist the arm bones away from the butt. Front ribs in some to support lower back and feel a stretch in the shoulders, too. Lots of length through the spine and neck. Side body long.

3. Side bend in your straddle forward fold. Release one side lower back and the whole side chain. One knee bent and inner arm and that knee resist each other. Other leg straight but engaged and inner thighs always lifting up and outer hips cascade down. Other arm long on diagonal or on block. Press floor down and away. Move the arms around to find some sweet spots.

4. Malasana or deep yoga squat. Fold over, round upper back, hands on floor or block away from you, drop head. Gets into your upper back and grumpy neck, too! Hands in prayer.

5. Reach arms up and come to standing. Stretch and yawn the whole front body open! Hands to heart/baby🤰🏽❤️

Do this often throughout the day. Mini yoga breaks. Yoga can be 5 mins a day 3x/day rather than a 60 min class sometimes. Though, that’s nice, too 😊

Have a wonderful day, mama.

Namaste.

Do the yoga, mamas. Feel better. Yoga was my shelter, strength, and support during two pregnancies, two miscarriages, two postpartum periods. Mind body spirit workout/workin.

Yoga on Zoom isn’t the same as in person but better than nothing. Doing the live class, you have an opportunity to connect with other moms. You have a space to be Seen and Heard by others who understand what you’re going through. You need to be acknowledged and witnessed during pregnancy - this is a celebratory time, even during a pandemic. Seek Joy. In postpartum you need copious amounts of acceptance, compassion, and refuge bc this is an incredibly massive time of change for you - hormonally to mentally to identity shifts. You deserve support and love for everything you’ve been through and are going through. Don’t isolate or stop talking. Try to find creative ways to connect and talk. Join a PIP group and/or take a weekly yoga class w other moms on Zoom. Seek shelter.

Feel the loss, grief, your weariness but don’t get stuck there. Keep moving forward. Move the body, talk or write, lower the bar. I’m pulling for your mental health and a joyful pregnancy and peaceful postpartum despite what’s happening on the outer world.

Trust the Flow. Let go of control, mama, and surrender. Tomorrow a new moon in Libra ♎️ 🌙. Today we are in the balsamic phase/dark moon. Time to slow down, tune out, turn in.

Use the new moon to think about your relationship w self, then the other.

How is it going?

Pregnancy 🤰🏽 and new mom life are potent times to discover yourself and who you are. In pregnancy you slow down and really (re) evaluate your choices, life, work, home, relationships. If you’re taking care of a baby non stop, and you don’t have time to think about yourself - however, under the blur of baby sleep deprivation there is an undercurrent of ‘Who am I?’ as you cross the threshold from your old life to the new life. You too are questioning relationships w family and friends that may need restructuring.

Take a few moments this new moon to think about the relationship w yourself and others. Where can you clean up, let go, REfine, REdo, REpair? Mercury rx so think RE - review, etc.

And, above all Trust the Flow of your life. You are guided, protected, on schedule, so loved and supported from the other side, and a Force of Love bigger than all of your relationship problems, fears, worries is holding you.

Words are powerful. The good vs bad mom is so triggering. I’m so tired of it. This language. If we drop these simple but impactful words do you think it could help mothers feel less shame, guilt, isolation for being human first, then a mother? I think so.

What do you think?

Who says? Society? The doctor? The books? Your family? Your harsh inner critic and judge?

Stop ‘shoulding’ yourself, mama. Don’t rush the healing. Take your time. Your body is not the enemy. The body wants to heal and find balance. The ego mind is the enemy if it is using us rather than the mind serving us and us using the mind as a tool. Hook the mind to high thoughts or at least neutral ones.

Remember, that non judgemental witness you found in prenatal yoga? Use the same kindness, acceptance, and compassion you cultivated in your pregnancy and yoga practice towards your postpartum body and life. This is where it really matters, and you will be glad you were practicing yoga and it’s tools.

Postpartum is when you really need the spiritual armor, and pregnancy was the preparation and precursor for you learning those skills for this moment. Apply generosity, patience, self love tools during postpartum when the body mind are unrecognizable to you and recalibrating, healing. I know patience is hard. Let that be your lesson then. But, drop the shoulds and time line. You are exactly on schedule and your body knows what it is going. Relax a little. Love yourself as you are.

Do a little less, feel more. Happy Sunday.

Trust the deep inner space. Go into the dark womb to incubate and stir the caldron. Let the creativity, alchemy, transformation come from deep within the dark stillness and mystery of your womb or hara, your creative center and power. Embrace the darkness.

Omg I miss these days 😭 and, not. Now, I have the patience, compassion, and wisdom to cope w these sorts of reactions but maybe less tolerance and bandwidth, energy 🤷🏻‍♀️ By products of midlife.

My son brought me to my knees and rocked my world. Hardest baby. Especially after his super easy sister baby. Balance of the opposites ☺️ You get what you get. Karma. Now, the reverse is true as my children have grown up some. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Do you have a child that rocked your nervous system?? Comment below.

Bonus. Any astrology buffs like me want to guess his rising sign? Hint: it isn’t Leo ♌️ though the dramatics surely resemble it 🤣

Calm down and hit the reset button w this breath! #Keeping the thumb on the diaphragm gives the mind an anchor of focus. Our energy flows where our attention goes. Try it. Close the mouth. Slow, steady, controlled. Breath is thought. Command the breath, command the thought, word, action. Breathe deeply and change your life.

Bonus 👉🏼This breathing is very helpful for toning and relaxing the pelvic floor muscles, too. 🙌🏼

Calm breath. Calm mind. Calm mind. Calm breath 🌊
