fourthtrimester James came home yesterday afternoon and Jack was admitted again just a few hours later with RSV & bronchiolitis. Four hospital admissions in as many weeks and I'm feeling defeated and not myself. It's heartbreaking to see our children unwell and it has finally all caught up with me. I've taken a little break from social media over the past few days to get myself in a better headspace and focus on finding my positivity again. Yes we've had an almost unbelievable run of bad luck, but I won't let it beat me. Please continue to send your love, and here's to healthier and happier days ahead ♡

fourthtrimester THIS IS WHAT I FOUGHT FOR. I fought to create a life where I don’t have to say “sorry I’m busy” when my baby boy wants to snuggle his momma in the middle of a Tuesday. Momma’s all yours John Lucas — I’ll catch up on my inbox this afternoon. I’m certain these moments will go by far too fast, and I’m not about to miss them. 💙✌🏼

I know things will level out eventually and we’ll find our groove, but for now I’m just making it day by day ❤️" . ⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀ . ⠀ 📷: @karatinsley . ⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀ . We're hiring!

fourthtrimester #endthestigma A while back I asked people to share their personal #MMH stories... I got some incredible posts from some amazing women! 💞💞💞Along with those posts I also received posts from some medical professionals who work with women experiencing PMAD’s. They want to help moms know that it’s ok to not be ok and that it’s ok to ask for help! 💖💖💖
・・・
This week I will be sharing their posts on my blog (Link in BiO)! ・・・
Today's post is from Heathir Brown (Doula) 🌸🌸🌸 (@heathirbrown)
・・・
“It seems that our societal demands on families have increased while the support networks have significantly decreased.“
・・・
If you or someone you know would like to submit a post (a personal experience with MMH or as a medical professional supporting the community) please feel free to send me a DM. The more stories we share the more mamas will know they are not alone and that it’s ok to ask for help.🛑🛑🛑

fourthtrimester It never seems to fail. Every time I am postpartum, typically those fragile first two weeks, all I can think of is how temporary this life is. I get so weepy over my kids and how much and how fast they have grown. It’s not as awful these last two times since I didn’t have to return to work full time (I was a SOPPING MESS with my second!), but I especially get emotional about the previously youngest child. ⠀⠀
Last night I tucked in my two year old and once he finally fell asleep, I just held him and cried. He seemed so little until a few short days ago. Now he seems so giant! And he was truly the baby for the last two years and now I’m feeling all the guilt for thrusting him into this big brother role. ⠀⠀
After holding my “baby” and letting all those feeeeels out, I just had to give it to God. The author of this chapter. The creator of this new life. Giver of all hope. I have to peel my eyes away from this temporary life, that feels so fleeting, and fix them on the forever kingdom He has promised. Yes, I may never feel like I have enough time with these precious babies, but I don’t live for this life. I live in hope that we will all spend eternity together with Jesus. In these moments of sadness, that’s what I cling to. He’s the one I cry out to, and He always shows up to comfort me. ⠀⠀
What is your biggest struggle during those first two weeks?

fourthtrimester Well it wasnt what I hoped for. Postpartum weightloss is humbling. With my current dieting, previously I would lose 1 to 2 lb in a week. Will just keep working hard and push myself. #fourthtrimester #4thtrimester #postpartumfitness #postpartumbody #weighinwednesday

fourthtrimester Sleep BEGETS sleep!! Many new parents wonder if their baby will sleep longer stretches at night if they keep them up longer during the day. Keeping your baby awake for longer periods leads to an over stimulated baby and makes it harder for them to fall asleep. 👶💤👶💤

fourthtrimester “I realized what a lot of fairytales and movies and messages from society have put in my head, because the way I left the hospital the first time and the way I left the second were two different women. The first time I pushed myself to be superwoman, like ‘I’ll do it natural birth and then twelve hours later I’m out of the hospital in high heels.’ Now I look back and say ‘Who asked you to do this? And who asked you to not delegate, to feel like you have to do everything yourself twenty-four hours a day and forget to take care of yourself?’ That has nothing to do with feminism. I was not respecting myself by doing that.” — Penélope Cruz, actress and mother to Leo and Luna, June 2019

fourthtrimester This week we’re talking about the power of saying NO in the Whole Mama Community. This becomes harder and harder for us as we become mothers because our children need us to be there for them, to care for them and to listen to them.
.
We go through a phase where they need to be constantly held and rocked, so even though we may want our body back this nurturing takes priority. So we learn to say no to our own needs in service of this tiny human we are raising. And that is ok.
.
What we need to learn to do more bravely is to say “not right now.” There is so much guilt and unnecessary ‘shoulding’ when it comes to balancing self-care and parenting and many days it feels like I’m failing at both. Like I’m kind of saying no to my kids, and kind of saying no to myself and then I get to the end of the day and I feel like I’ve failed, and then the cycle picks right back up the next day.
.
I’m here to stand beside all the mothers who have felt this way. Who struggle to make the space to come home to themselves, because I’m right there too.
.
Together we can learn to give a clear and resounding NO to those things that aren’t filling us up so that we can honor everything we are enthusiastically saying YES to without guilt or apology.
.
Together we can learn to say “not right now” or “not yet” when we need just a little more time to figure things out and to be in the very, very grey space that motherhood creates in our life.
.
Together we can learn to be selfless AND honor our dreams and desires at the same time because it is possible. We may not always be at choice about what the universe is serving up, but we do get to be at choice about how we respond and who we surround ourselves with to support us on this journey.
.
The next time you see a mama who has put the needs of her children before her own, don’t look at her with sympathy and ask why she doesn’t make time for herself. Come to her with an open heart and offer to help support her in what she needs right NOW. And I can guarantee you it is most certainly not a guilt trip about her own self care.

"I was not prepared for today. So many things have changed, are changing, and will continue to change from here on out. My hormones are so far out of my control and boy, am I feeling it. Wrapped up in love with this baby, and feeling guilt over not spending enough time with our toddler. I was in tears while I was updating his journal with his birth story. I know things will level out eventually and we’ll find our groove, but for now I’m just making it day by day ❤️" . ⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀ . ⠀ 📷: @karatinsley . ⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀ . We're hiring!

fourthtrimester [ Home ] I love my little home and I appreciate it all the more because I was once sitting on the floor of the house I shared with my partner, 13 weeks pregnant with beautiful Ever and surrounded by boxes of my belongings while I was trying to make sense of why I had just been walked out on while pregnant. I hadn’t heard from Ever’s father and I could barely pull myself up off the floor, let alone try to pack up the life we shared into boxes. ⠀
⠀
Even now thinking back on those few days that I tried to pack up my life with no idea on how I would ever feel okay again let alone try to be somebodies mother, it still causes a pit in my stomach. I have rebuilt my life from the ground up, I have slowly put my heart and what used to be a completely shattered soul back together and to say I’m proud of me is an understatement. ⠀
⠀
Sometimes I walk around our little home and I feel an overwhelming gratitude for how far we have come. Today I walked in the door with these new pillows I splurged on @adairs and sat them on the couch, I looked around at the light pouring in through the windows like it does every afternoon and I looked up at the memories Ever and I have made together up on the walls and I whispered to myself “you made it, you survived” and you know what I didn’t just survive, I thrived... I took that bullshit that happened and I told it “you aren’t going to fucking define me, I’m going to fucking rise like you have never seen before” and I did... and if you are out there needing a pep talk YOU WILL TOO.... Rise girl rise, because you are never what has happened to you but instead how you handle it.

fourthtrimester Three days later, and my brain is still trying to digest the incredible weekend that I had in Indy. The workouts, the learning, the parties, the friendships made—I can’t believe this is my job.🥰And I can’t believe that it took me 2 years to say YES! Because this is where I BELONG!
•
These women are IT y’all. They are strong, resilient,  life-giving women, who continuously empower, inspire, and push me out of my comfort zone. They are my team. My tribe. My circle. And despite being so different, coming from all walks of life, each and every one of them makes me BETTER. Because like my girl @msrachelhollis preached this weekend... “We are doing better because we’re doing life with people that are not like us!”🌈
•
I don’t know where I’d be if I didn’t say YES to this opportunity two years ago.. If I continued to watch from the sidelines as other people went after their dreams.. If I continued to listen to my inner-mean girl tell me that I wasn’t good enough, that I didn’t belong. Joining this community changed my life, and it can change yours too if you let it. ✨YOU BELONG HERE!✨ @livethefabcoachlife

fourthtrimester Parenting is hard, but you don’t have to do it alone. We love what we do. We love being there for YOU. Reviews like this, are icing on the cake. “After our initial consultation with Vanessa, we immediately started to feel better. We created a plan that respected our parenting methods and allowed us to work with our son to come up with a sleep plan that was exciting to him - he felt like a big boy! We implemented the plan and within one week, our son was back to falling asleep easily and sleeping through the night and he has never looked back! He is more rested and happier and so are his parents! Sometimes as parents we need to remember to reach out for help and I'm so glad we did. Vanessa was knowledgeable, reassuring, smart, straight forward and kind. ANY parent who is struggling with sleep should consider this a trusted resource - we're so happy we worked with Well Rested Baby.”

If a confident birth is one of your goals then adopting a birth mantra or birth affirmations is huge. ⁠⠀

This quote spoke so strongly to me before I had Evie and I called upon it several times when the contractions started to get into my head. Did you have a mantra or affirmation that you called upon? ⁠⠀

fourthtrimester Babies are stimulated in so many ways - through socialising with each other, watching and modeling off other babies, playing with the various toys, textures, sounds and and exploring their environments with their secure attachment person just a tiny distance from them. •
This makes it a wonderful opportunity for them to learn and grow with you as a safety net very close by, PLUS with a unique opportunity to recover from any potential ‘overstimulation’ very quickly by having super snuggly cuddles and often a little doze 😴 while their little brains benefit from the rhythmic music and movement which stimulates cell growth and emotional regulation. •
Not only this, but the experience of babywearing itself has countless benefits for babies including all the benefits of skin to skin contact, babies heartbeat and temperature becoming regulated with the wearer, and the long term brain benefits we know that come from close contact with a primary attachment person. •
So yeah, science says Kanga is great for babies. (And if you don’t like listening to science, well just check out these smiles instead !! ☺️😍 ) •

fourthtrimester No one is perfect despite what Instagram makes it look like. I’ve worked hard for these abs, for this small waist, yes. But you know what I worked even harder for? Those wrinkles above my belly button. They are proof of my hard work growing two babies. I earned them. I earned it all.

Be proud of your body despite what others may perceive as flaws.

Being a health and wellness coach is more than just teaching people the benefits of exercise and proper nutrition. It’s also about teaching my group of women to love their bodies through the process.

If you have been struggling with negative self talk, self doubt, lack of support or motivation, let’s chat. There’s room for you in our private virtual gym, and I want to help you unlock your potential 💕

fourthtrimester James came home yesterday afternoon and Jack was admitted again just a few hours later with RSV & bronchiolitis. Four hospital admissions in as many weeks and I'm feeling defeated and not myself. It's heartbreaking to see our children unwell and it has finally all caught up with me. I've taken a little break from social media over the past few days to get myself in a better headspace and focus on finding my positivity again. Yes we've had an almost unbelievable run of bad luck, but I won't let it beat me. Please continue to send your love, and here's to healthier and happier days ahead ♡

fourthtrimester 🌟CLOSING THE BONES 🌟

As of yesterday, MummaPod are delighted to bring the incredible post natal massage to their list of services available to new/old mummas! I was honoured to host an incredible closing the bones workshop run by the wonderful @smessager at my home, in Teddington.
.

What is Closing the Bones? In short, it is a massage with warming and nurturing use of a scarf (or in my case… a Robozo). That said, it is so much more than that, it is a way to support a mothers recovery after childbirth and a way to celebrate the amazing abilities of her body. It is a rare chance to focus on the mother as she enters her new stage of life when she can be so easily forgotten. This helps her recovery in both physical and mental ways.
.

This incredible picture shows the closing ritual of the workshop and is rather amazing… I was lucky enough to be on the receiving end. .

Now, to the lucky first few of you that are based 2 miles from Teddington/ or who are willing to come to my home… I would like to offer the first two people this amazing massage for free. Send me an email! For th rest of you, you be able to book this through the BEYOND section of the website on the next few days. .

I know it looks alternative and hippy, but embrace it and you won't look back! .

fourthtrimester The world is a little brighter this morning, guys! Austin Paige Byler joined us at 1:52 am at a whopping 7lbs 13 ounces. I was scheduled for an induction today, but my water decided to break yesterday! We are over the moon with our Ozzy girl. 🥰

fourthtrimester James came home yesterday afternoon and Jack was admitted again just a few hours later with RSV & bronchiolitis. Four hospital admissions in as many weeks and I'm feeling defeated and not myself. It's heartbreaking to see our children unwell and it has finally all caught up with me. I've taken a little break from social media over the past few days to get myself in a better headspace and focus on finding my positivity again. Yes we've had an almost unbelievable run of bad luck, but I won't let it beat me. Please continue to send your love, and here's hoping for healthier and happier days ahead ♡

fourthtrimester MOTHERHOOD IS FULL OF CONTRADICTORY EMOTIONS 🥰 After a full day with my two babes, I look forward to a little time out once they go to bed. I’ve got to admit that some days I just feel so emotionally exhausted at the end of the day, especially when I have to do the bedtime routine on my own which is often. Once the two of them are sleeping sounding, I like to take a warm shower (and lots of deep breathing). It’s then that I really get a chance to reflect on all the amazing things and beautiful moments that happened that day.... seeing little Maya get so excited at every new thing she sees, clapping her hands in excitement... or having the absolute best and funniest conversations with my Issy - she just had the biggest and kindest heart. I’m lying here right now as my Issy has her warm back against mine... she needs me beside her most nights as she goes to sleep. Yes it’s exhausting and demanding, but I know this time will go by so fast and soon I’ll be wishing my girls needed me at bedtime. Sending love to all the Mummas and Pappas out there tonight xx Lou

fourthtrimester 🌲Our First Holiday🌲⁣
⁣
After months of deliberation and trawling through holiday search engines we were not able to agree on a suitable destination for our holiday and agreed to stay in the UK. We have been to Center Parcs before just not Whinfell Forest, Lake District but were confident in booking a holiday with them as we have never been let down before 👌🏻⁣
⁣
And this time was no different👍🏻⁣
⁣
We just went for a long weekend as Cai was unable to book any longer off due to work commitments, but it was perfect 💕⁣
⁣
We had a self catering apartment overlooking the forest and just had a lovely time relaxing, swimming and exploring 🏊‍♀⁣
⁣
The only difference this time was instead of being out late in the evenings we were back in the apartment by 7pm to put Teddy to bed. Then spent our evenings on the balcony with a few drinks and playing Uno and a new card game s***head 🤣⁣
⁣
The swimming pool area is very warm with lots of fountains and waterfalls (MAJOR BABY SENSORY STIMULATION), the changing facilities were fantastic - family changing with their own changing tables!! They also have a baby session 3 times a week with songs and activities in the pool - but we didn’t find this out until the last day and missed it!! 🤦‍♀⁣
⁣
The complex is very buggy friendly as are the staff ☺⁣
⁣
Finally the apartment itself was perfect with a large bath and a studio layout - just the right amount space, only downside is the new is better from the first floor but there are not any lifts.⁣
⁣
The location of the village is perfect - approx 25-45 minutes from any major tourist attraction in the Lake District. We decided to venture over to Aira Force and explore the waterfall. Again HIGHLY RECOMMEND - will need a baby carrier and suitable footwear. It is so worth it!! BEAUTIFUL 😍⁣
⁣
Overall, Center Parcs for a holiday with baby - 10/10 RECOMMEND 👏🏾⁣

fourthtrimester Wooden Lacing animals are great for fine motor development and hand eye coordination. Lacing animals make great on the go activities for car/plane trips or to help pass the time while you wait at a restaurant or doctor's office. Sanded perfectly smooth. Add one to your busy bags!
Wood is magical natural material and it fills children with life energy and kindness. Playing with wooden toys children develop fine motor skills and Hand-eye coordination. They discover their creativity and stimulate their imagination.

fourthtrimester We can’t control what they put in their mouths. 
Just like adults, we cannot force someone to eat what we deem as good for them. We can’t force in one more bite, or make them try a new food food, or finish their plate, at least not without serious resistance and fighting back. 
What we can control is having our own healthy relationship with food and modelling good behaviours and habits. 
We can control what food comes in to the house, what does now, and what is cooked and served. 
We can control having good variety on offer at each meal, having a good balance of protein carbs and fats for their bodies to thrive on. 
As parents we offer, and the children choose. 
They choose if they are hungry and will eat or not. 
They choose how much they eat and what they eat (off the plate you offered)
They choose when they’re full, if they need more fruit or whatever it is (within reason).
They choose what goes in their mouths.

fourthtrimester It’s hard to take that first step. It’s hard to collect yourself, your baby and everything that you need to get out. Sometimes it seems so much easier to stay at home. But sometimes it can also seem so much lonelier and harder, trapped indoors, no one to talk to except a baby and/or toddler. Watching the clock until your partner arrives home from work, counting down the hours, minutes, seconds until you can have a breather or another adult to talk to. 
I know that the key for me to staying sane and happy has been to get out and show up, talk to other Mums, get some exercise and get those endorphins going. But was it easy when my kids were babies to do this? No. Is it easier now? Sometimes. Sometimes after a rough night (those that know me know that my kiddos are not the best sleepers, although Juni is finally starting to sleep well after getting grommets), the last thing I have felt like is getting out of the house. But I also know that if I stay at home I will be crankier, feel more tired and count those seconds more frequently until my hubby gets home. 
So each day I make an effort to try and do something that forces me to get out and show up, whether it be Kanga, a play date or just taking the kids to the park. 
What do you do to help you get out of the house and show up?

fourthtrimester How beautiful are these little booties that Emília’s auntie Yun made! She is so ridiculously talented and these are something I will keep forever for Emília. I’m hoping she will make something cute for her first birthday 🙈 there’s nothing like handmade gifts because no one else has them! I’m still wishing I could knit but I honestly don’t have the patience, I get so frustrated 😅 Can you knit? 🧶 .

fourthtrimester Well postpartum hair loss is definitely a thing. I’m fortunate to have a lot of hair, so it’s not noticeable but I did have a panic at this huge shedding session. More reasons to wear a cycling helmet all the time I guess, to keep it on my head.

fourthtrimester 🏄🏻‍♀️PLAY!🤸🏽‍♀️
Just like you and I,babies need play/chill time. Unstructured and freedom to make decisions. Letting these awesome lil humans be themselves,be silly,’waste’ time and most importantly,inadvertently gain and master new skills. 
Raising a child isn’t a race. You don’t win a trophy 🏆for your child being the first to crawl,the first to eat solids,the first to say “daddy” or most likely in my case,she will be the first to say “f@#k!” 🤦🏽‍♀️
Enjoy just playing,interacting,making a hell of a mess and laughing together. Stop rushing mama. I have both a baby and an 18 year old...trust me,those years flew by. 💜👶🏼💙

fourthtrimester Do you feel like you’re not doing enough?⠀
⠀
We want to be able to do all these things but there really is just not enough hours in the day. Plus those little distractions we have take up a lot of time!⠀

I think it’s important though to remember that you can do whatever you set your mind to. But you really can’t achieve anything!! ⭐️⠀
⠀
Think about what gets done in your days. There are obviously essential things that keep you and your family alive. Then what gets done beyond that is what you value or prioritise. ⠀
⠀
One thing I work on with my clients is goal setting. We really hone in on focusing on one main goal at a time and breaking it down and making it achievable. ⠀
⠀
We also focus on WHY you want to achieve that goal because this is the most important part of goal setting because on those days when you want to throw in the towel you can remember why you started in the first place!⠀
⠀
So for some action steps:⠀
⠀
✔️Think about what it is that you really want to achieve. If you have numerous goals that is fine! But then go through them all again and pick ONE that you are going to focus on for now⠀
⠀
✔️Now make the goal specific... instead of saying ‘get healthier’ or ‘get fit’ decide on a specific goal like ‘fit into my favourite red dress by christmas’⠀
⠀
✔️Next figure out WHY you want to achieve this goal⠀
⠀
✔️Next break down the goal in achievable blocks!⠀
⠀

fourthtrimester This is just so upsetting. We have enough to worry about as new mums trying to establish breastfeeding than to know also have to worry about toxic chemicals in our bodies. 💛
•
Labour MP Mary Creagh, who chairs the EAC, said: “Most people assume that they aren’t at risk from toxic chemicals but the reality is different. “Mums in the UK have some of the world’s highest concentrations of flame retardants in their breast milk, some of which have now been banned. Chemical flame retardants are still being widely used in our furnishings, from children’s mattresses to sofas. Meanwhile the government is sitting on its hands instead of changing regulations to ensure that the most toxic chemicals are taken out of use.”

fourthtrimester ✨BLOOM✨

Ahh the third trimester. A blur of sweet little (or BIG!) kicks, regular toilet trips & the wonder of when you are going to meet your little bub. .

How many weeks were you when you went into labour? My first was 34 weeks (precious little premmie), then 39 weeks, then 39  weeks and a few days. It felt like the time dragged on with my girls. Continually wishing I would go into labour! .
