A Natural Home Birth Story: Welcome Arrow

home birth stories

This is the story of how Arrow came in to our lives. It isn't graphic, so there is no need to close your eyes. It is almost everything I could have hoped for.  I hope it is empowering, fear dissolving and inspiring. Sharing my life through words and pictures is something that I've always loved to do. It is a way for me to remember precious moments and keep memories alive as time passes. I never captured the birth or got newborn photos of my first two children, and it is something I've always regretted.  When I got pregnant this time, I knew it was my chance to do everything I never did with the other two. This also meant not finding out the sex before the baby was born, which was the most fun!

When most people embark on a holistic lifestyle, they typically start by making meaningful changes to their diet followed by improvements to their skincare routine. Wholesome, organic foods replace their genetically modified counterparts, while cleansers and creams filled with toxins are swapped out for eco-friendly, all natural products. It’s a process. However sometimes during that process, we forget to make the change when it comes to that often hidden, tucked away body part: our underarms. It’s just as important as any other skin on your body, if not more so, so take a look at what’s in your current antiperspirant and consider making some changes (like to a DIY deodorant that works).

We all know what a healthy diet filled with the right vitamins, antioxidants and minerals can do for our skin and hair, but what we put on our hair to wash and style it with is just as important.
