Five beautiful moms and their partners came to learn about breastfeeding at @memphiswellnesscollective today, and while I’m exhausted from 90 minutes of animated teaching in a mask, I feel cozy and encouraged… because I’m doing the work I love and hopefully helping transform some of the hard parts of postpartum. I’m so proud of these people who made time to come and stayed masked and were respectful of each other and kind, good sports.
Hi moms! If you're looking to connect with me about what I do, here are some options:
I wish so many things were different by now! I know y'all are working hard to do your best, and so am I. I did a doula home visit and a lactation home visit yesterday, and an overnight shift last night. Yes I'm vaccinated, and yes I was masked in their homes. If there's a thing to do that might help us get through this next wave, let's do it. Let's keep living in the world, but be sensitive to the greater good. I'll be teaching my prenatal yoga classes at @sundara_wellness in a mask and headset again. Shout out to Nathalie at @veracityskinstudio for making my brows and lashes speak a little bit louder while the rest of my face goes mysterioso again. Choose your choice, but I thought I might share mine, in hope that it helps with momentum in my community. This is hard. We can do it.
This is a post about 1) @beth_s_76 Beth Shelton, Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW, PMH-C, an awesome perinatal mental health resource right here in Memphis. We both really love supporting parents, and today I got to visit her gorgeous new office. 2) She is hosting my group prenatal breastfeeding workshop on August 11th! Please come, and bring your partner or a support person. Be vaccinated or plan to wear your mask. Register at www.mymamabody.com or DM me for more info!
I have LOVED teaching this group of moms in my six-week prenatal yoga series at @sundara_wellness !! Look at those sweet relaxed faces. The next series starts Sunday, July 11, at 4:15 pm. Contact Sundara to reserve your spot! I know some of you vaccinated moms are dying to see other pregnant people and move your bodies. It was a VIBE to be together, I tell ya. Such a good feeling. #prenatalyoga #yogainmemphis #901yoga
I have recommended @fit4mommemphis to tons of mom friends and clients over the years - they were just what I needed when I was a stroller mom, and they've been good friends and partners in my work as well! The community is thriving and has lots of new offerings now, and I'm excited to teach this free class and hang out a bit afterwards with expecting moms at @workandplaystudio. Class is free, but please pre-register with @fit4mommemphis if you plan to attend!
