Hello friends! It’s been quite a few months since I took my hiatus from this podcast, and I wanted to give you a quick update before diving into some deep content over the next few episodes. The last episode was aired in August of 2020, crazy right? It’s amazing how quickly and slowly time goes at the same time. Well, where I live, has been and still is in pretty restrictive lockdown, so most of my updates are of a personal natur...

Hello fellow birth workers. Today I’m excited to get pretty vulnerable with you all about my own story with functional movement. How I started out as an athlete, became a couch potato for the sake of motherhood and transitioned into finding my balance and rhythm. When I share that I’m a functional Movement Specialist, I get a lot of questions, it’s not your average title. I get that if I said I was a personal training most people w...

Hello fellow birth workers! We’re a week into July fo 2020. Everything has been crazy this whole year! Do you remember the Australia fires that started this year? That seems like 5 years ago instead of 5-6 months ago when that kicked off our year. It’s gotten more intense ever since. 2020 has impacted our families, our communities, our ability to BE with our clients, our ability to provide for our families. It’s challenged our own ...

I’m so glad you’re here today, because today’s episode is GOLD! Now it’s about a topic many of us might find overwhelming or unapproachable or we have told ourselves is just quite frankly out of our league. Websites! Did you cringe? Did your groan a little? That’s ok and very normal, and also, that means today’s episode is perfect for you! Over the last few months, we’ve seen a transition into the online world on a level that is of...
