40: IUGR. A CONVERSATION WITH SARAMAE FOUNDS



In today’s episode I am sharing a very special conversation I had with my friend SaraMae Founds about her pregnancy, son, and Intrauterine Growth Restriction (IUGR).

IUGR refers to a condition in which an unborn baby is smaller than it should be because it is not growing at a normal rate inside the womb.

Delayed growth puts the baby at risk of certain health problems during pregnancy, delivery, and after birth.

SaraMae shares her story from beginning to end. Her doctor appointments, hospital stays, testing procedures, final diagnosing process and how her and Jackson are living now.

Have you ever gone through IUGR or something similar? As SaraMae says being an Advocate is so important. Tag me on Facebook and Instagram @ownyourprettynow so we can continue this conversation. I would love to hear your story.

We will be welcoming Gabriella “Ella” into our lives.

In this episode I am sharing how I feel and what I am doing to get myself ready as well as our 3-year-old Liam. He is very ready to have a sister!

This time around I am going inward and taking more time to be alone as I give myself more patience and grace.

I have not always been great when it comes to change. However, this time around I am open to it.

32: MATERNITY LEAVE AND BEING YOUR OWN ADVOCATE



On today’s episode I’m getting into a little bit of a hot topic. Two words…

Maternity Leave!

I’m talking about my personal experiences of working in a male dominated field and what it is like to be the first female who has ever gone on a maternity leave in my department.

I am also sharing what I have learned from my experience this time and last time when going on a leave with Liam.

You may think you are all prepared but then you find yourself creating a brand-new checklist and getting through some tough obstacles.

One lesson I would like you to take away from this episode is that no matter how uncomfortable the situation please make sure you are standing up for yourself and your rights.

Make sure to always be your own advocate and blaze that trail you wish existed!

I would love to continue this conversation with you on maternity leave. Tag me on Facebook and Instagram @ownyourprettynow so we can chat.
