EPISODE 23: CLINICAL POSTPARTUM QUESTIONS ANSWERED



In this episode of The Own Your Pretty Now Podcast I am chatting with my good friend/Nurse Practitioner Alexis Shelley.

We are getting all into her very important role of being a super mom as well as a Lactation Counselor.

Alexis will be sharing her nursing tips with us and giving us very useful information for when it comes to the diagnosis and treatment of having the baby blues versus having clinical postpartum depression.

Some people may show symptoms such as loneliness, sadness or anxiousness four weeks after baby and some six months to even a year later which many people are unaware of.

We also discuss some great remedies to help treat these symptoms such as talk therapy and nutritional support in this episode.

Alexis shares the importance of reaching out to someone whether it be a friend or family member when feeling a bit down. This will surely take some of the pressures off yourself. Especially when sharing your struggles with someone close to you.

We also go into how we can make more mindful choices, choose things that will help normalize our new routines with baby and get into what “kangaroo care” is all about and why it is so important to start right after having the baby.

Are you a new mom and having those days where the struggle is “really” real? Are you looking to chat with someone else who has truly been through it all?

Let’s talk about it…

EPISODE 22: THE MOM BOSS HUSTLE



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast I am talking to all the women and mothers out there who love the hustle.

I just celebrated a one-year anniversary of my Monat haircare business which I cannot believe!

This home-based business has not only allowed me flexibility. It has offered me a huge sense of fulfillment as well as another income that I am able to contribute to my home all while working from my phone.

Doesn’t sound real does it?

I will admit in the beginning I was all about the discount on healthy beauty products. Then after watching friends run their own businesses I decided it was time to learn “the biz” myself and I haven’t looked back.

This business has shown me more confidence and skills and taught me ways on how to be more powerful and productive with my time.

If you have little ones at home, then you know what I mean…

Are you a mom who works from home? What do you love and maybe not love about it?

Let’s talk about these topics some more…

EPISODE 21: MONEY, MINDSET AND MOTHERHOOD



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast I’m getting into a few new topics. Money and mindset and how we are learning how we train or try to retrain ourselves.

The words that we speak have so much power and we need to listen to what we are saying out loud as it has so much meaning to ourselves and others.

I learned this as my little one Liam is remembering everything these days.

I also talk about how we always can walk through open doors of new opportunities.

We all can have the ability to work from home. We just must be ready for change and of course have an open mind for something new that has presented itself to us.

How do you feel about money?

Have you had to make any sacrifices lately?

Are you a mom who works from home? What do you love and maybe not love about it?

Let’s talk about these topics some more…

EPISODE 19: POSTPARTUM TOOLS



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast I am sharing some important postpartum tools I will have in mind (and with me) as I am on the new journey of our second.

If you haven’t heard, we are welcoming a little girl into our family January 2019. Liam is going to have a little sister!

I wanted to create some actionable items that I would be able to put into place this time around.

I want to eat healthier, give myself the permission to sleep and ask for help when needed.

I want to be able to outsource things like house cleaning so that I don’t feel I must do everything.

I simply want to have more time with our precious little girl as soon as she arrives. And more time with Liam of course!

I want to make sure my appreciation for nutrition and workouts do not go away.

To learn more about my tools be sure to tune in and listen to the full episode.

To check out one of my favorite workouts I mentioned in the show visit Orangetheory Fitness here.

If you experienced some postpartum depression with your first baby and had tools that worked for you with your second, please let me know. Shoot me a message today! I would love to hear them.

EPISODE 16: NURSING DIARY AND DILEMMAS



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast I’m talking all about the topic of Nursing.
I want moms going through the first order of real motherhood to know that feeling the guilt and frustration of nursing is completely normal and ok.
You must be patient and kind to your body first and foremost.
I’d like to say nursing is a bit like starting a business with a new partner.
You’re both about to start a new journey together so patience and maybe a little persistence is really priority.
Know that it is ok to take a break at any time you feel you need one.
Sometimes you may need to bring in a professional like I did with Liam and that is completely ok as well!
Be sure to have a pen and paper for this episode as I’m closing it out with a few tips for you to consider.

I know these may be sensitive topics for some but if you ever need to chat some more on this topic. I am only a DM away!

This is something I feel in my heart that I have been called to share so I hope that by telling my story it helps put your mind at ease. This may be something that you or a friend or family member may be going through but please know that you are never alone.

Please though make sure you follow up with your Doctor whenever you feel uneasy with any situation as that is the most important thing to do for your baby and yourself.

EPISODE 14: SITTING DOWN WITH SARAH FRASER



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast I am chatting with my dear friend Sarah Fraser of the Hey Frase Podcast. 

Sarah is a well known media personality currently based out of our Nation’s Capital. Sarah also started in the podcasting game about three years ago. Before it was even a thought for most.

In today’s show she is sharing her story of how her career in radio helped launch her very own successful show.

We also get into motherhood, the joys of coming from great parents and the thoughts we have when it comes time to start our own family.

Sarah also shares with us why her and her partner have decided to wait to have kids. They have been together five years. But wait until you find out how they met! It is a pretty amazing story…

2019 will be the perfect opportunity to start planning something else a little bit near and dear to their hearts.

They may have opposite personalities but they do agree on one thing! A Baby!

We even chat about some of our pros and cons we have surrounding wedding planning which you will definitely have to tune in for more on that!

The two of us actually have quite a bit in common so you’ll hear all that in our conversation.

We both agreed that having a supportive partner is very important. Someone that allows us to follow our dreams and blaze our own trails per say.

Something else we chatted about is mindful living, healthy eating and the importance of having a mindful coach and what that can do to help us live our best life.

We cannot wait to connect with you to chat some more on today’s episode.

You can find me on Facebook and Instagram @ownyourprettynow.
