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!

I put all my energy into birth prep my first pregnancy.

I fumbled hard in postpartum. I didn’t think much at all about prepping for my postnatal period. Sure, I had the babies room, clothes, blankets, car seat, stuff ready but not much forethought on what I would need, emotionally and mentally.

I did take have some measures ready for my physical needs like a sitz bath to put over the toilet, big pads, witch hazel tucks, Colace.

You just have no clue what taking care of your first newborn will be like.

In hindsight and knowing what I know now, I’d put more energy and care into the postpartum plan, less in the birth plan. (I didn’t do or use half the stuff on my birth plan bc well, childbirth usually goes not how we planned it at all. Yes, I got the natural birth I wanted but how I got there was not how I planned it).

Here are some of my postpartum plan suggestions for pregnant moms based on my lived experience and “mistakes”.

1. Take a good breastfeeding class in pregnancy + read a book about it. Nothing can prepare you for the real thing but it is a tiny invitation to what you will be doing 24/7.

2. Have the contact info of a lactation consultant in your phone. You will most likely need some support w BF. It is hard. Ask for help. Shame + guilt free.

3. Have the contact info of a postpartum doula @kristenlucasdoula in your phone, as well as a therapist. Depression + anxiety is common. So is isolation and loneliness.

4. Have the contact info for a parent support group like @pipatx
Don’t isolate. If you’re one who tends to wait to go out into the world until you have mastered something, well, mom life will be hard. Release perfectionist behaviors and unrealistic expectations of motherhood. Everyone struggles.

5. Consider talking to your doctor or midwife about placenta encapsulation @thatreallytallgirl . I did this after #2. Well, I ate mine raw 😜 I noticed a marked difference in my mood 2nd postpartum.

6. Set up a meal train. Eat!

7. Keep life super simple. Lower your expectations and then lower them some more.

8. Cry. Rest. Try to stay in the present moment.

8. This is not forever. You will get through this. You are not alone.

Welcome Cancer Season!

Cancer is the mama bear. It is the caretaker, healer, and tenacious business person.

Cancer is a water sign and rules the belly and chest. It is the womb and amniotic fluid, and how we give birth to ourselves. Cancer nurtures and nourishes.

Cancer is similar to the sun in that it gives sustained nourishment. A Cancer out of balance can give endlessly to everyone but themselves. You would think Cancer is ruled by the sun, but it is actually ruled by the moon.

The moon is our physical and emotional needs. It also represents the mother, memories, unconscious, and how we nourish ourselves. Cancer is intuitive at reflecting back what others need.

The moon is illuminated by the light of the sun and as the moon moves around the Earth, the amount of illumination it receives from the sun changes. This creates the lunar cycles, and therefore the moon goes through many moods in one month, like sensitive Cancer.

The moon (Cancer) orbits around the Earth so quickly that the light of the Sun helps it to slow down to care for its physical (food, rest, shelter) and emotional (comfort, safety, love) needs. This is a good thing, like a checks and balances system for Cancer's health and well being.

And, energetically, Luna turns out (waxing and full moon) and turns in (waning and new moon). A continuous cycle of give and take.

This is the lesson for Cancer. Reciprocity. Inhale and Exhale. Not only giving but receiving in order to give again.

A Cancer is learning to give to themselves first, and mother (even if male gendered) and/or re parent themselves. A balanced Cancer takes care of their own needs so they can better take care of others needs.

A Cancer would love to feed others forever (like the sun) but would become very moody and under resourced if it did. The moons job is to honor its fluctuating human needs. And, moodiness is the sign that self care and/or boundary is needed, mama bear.

You are worthy of your own care sweet Cancer.

Self care tips w yoga poses to support the Cancer energy in you coming soon!

Happy Summer Solstice! It was exact last night, Sun, June 20. Celebrate the Light of the outer and inner worlds!

From my wise friend Lynn @abundantheartcircle 💗

“This is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and a time for observing the Light that exists in the world. As Jupiter in Pisces stations retrograde today we are reminded to find the Light within and learn how to be okay on your own terms, finding the happiness that comes from within yourself. To discover this inner light it is advisable to stop looking outside yourself to other people's ideas/beliefs via media, social media and approval. Time to find what is true for your wellbeing.”

Pregnant goddesses, your womb or hara is home to the Light of the creative, divine intelligence moving through you. Truly extraordinary! Own and honor your radiance and power.

With this power comes responsibility and choices to make about your body and baby.

There are so many opinions and outside voices about your body, birth, baby. It gets overwhelming and confusing.

In yoga, when in doubt, we go in.

Turn in to discover what is true for you - your body + your pregnancy, birth, and motherhood experience. There is no right or wrong answer. Only the one that is true for you and your happiness.

Stop comparing and despairing. When you can’t hear your own voice, get still and quiet. Go inside. The answers are there.

You may not like the answers, which is often the case, but the truth will set you free.

And, the Light within will guide you back home to your agency and well being.
