There is really no way to describe the depth of the sleep debt you reach as a new parent.  I try to explain to client the exhaustion that comes with parenting, but there is nothing to compare it to.  

As a pregnant young women I thought to myself, oh I partied hard in my 20's I got up.and went to work all hung over all the time. I can do this!  Boy was I misguided.

Now at first it's not that bad at all. Brand new newborns are cute and sleep all the time.  They may wake up every couple hours to eat, but they go back to sleep easily and aren't all that interested in interacting with the world.  

Then they grow, hit developmental leaps which keep them from wanting to sleep.  They just wanna practise their skills all....

There is a bit of a buzz around reflexology treatments at the moment. Which was a pleasant coincidence as I was finishing my training.

So what is it? Reflexology is a massage treatment based on the reflex points in the body. There are reflex points in the hands, feet, back and ears.  I focus of foot reflexology as well as a few points in the hands, especially when coaching clients on self treatment.  That's the basics!

What does a reflexology treatment look like with me?  Your treatment plan starts before you walk in my door (or when I walk in yours, since I do a lot of in home treatment)  Before I even book your appointment I offer a free consultation and get a medical history.  I want to make sure the treatment is a...

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Halloween has always been my most favorite "special day".  While most people felt it was a day to be something other then your normal.everyday self.  I found it was a time I could express myself more and feel more like myself.  Growing up I could do Halloween everyday!  

Now that I have children it really awesome,  though it's tough when they want to pick their own costumes and not humoured their mom and her far out ideas.

This year we have A dino skeleton, a Rapunzel, a slenderman, and a zombie.  My hubby an I are usually Star Trek Crew members.

My youngest daughter loves Halloween, she loves scary movies even more then I do.  Our youngest son on the other ...

I sit in awe this week, I have learned so much. As the world gets smaller, connected by the World Wide Web, we learn what one small company in one part of the world does effect people from all parts of the world. We all have to keep our eye and ears open.  Know better do better! My official stance on wraps like Prima and  companies like Didymos.  Is that's it's not for me to have a stance!  I am a white Canadian women and will hold space for people to feel and learn. My ears and eyes are open I am learning and doing better.

With the temperature falling and winter around the corner I thought it was a good time for some winter Babywearing tips. Firstly the fall.  This weather is great for a sweater for you and baby. Some padraigs or Mocs and baby legs are a great option to keep little legs and feet warm. You can look at Babywearing hoodie or poncho for cool mornings. As things get cooler you will need more options.  Now you can Babywear with out any special coat or panels just put baby in a snow suit and your coat on and put them in a carrier like usual.  This method may not work well with every carrier, and can be especially tricky with a woven wrap. There are zip in panels (available at many local baby stores) they can be useful for pregnancy...
