Visualizing how labor starts

 

 
All labors are unique – you don’t know if you’ll go into labor at home, at work, if it will proceed quickly or slowly, or if your bag of waters will break or not. Taking time to visualize all of the ways that your labor might begin will help you emotionally prepare for your labor and delivery.

This episode of Happy Healthy Human Radio discusses all of the ways that labor can start and why it’s important to visualize it before it happens.

Lessons from Yin: why we could all use a little more

In this latest episode of Happy Healthy Human Radio, you’ll hear why I finally took up a yin yoga practice and how it can benefit us all.

Life is your Creative Process

 

Today I wanted to talk about the creative process. And I know – so many of us don’t see what we do in our work or home life as creative, but it truly is. Creation is “the action or process of bringing something into existence”, and whether that’s a baby, a spreadsheet, or a work of art, it’s all creative.

 

When we focus on the creative process, we hear about how important it is to create a ritual, a routine. To show up in order to create.

 

However, in my experience, the most difficult part hasn’t been showing up to create, it’s been showing up to be inspired.

In your Third Trimester? Why you need to ask about your Bishops Score

 

The closer you get to the full-term, 37 weeks of pregnancy, the more excitement there is about when the baby will be born. Your doctor feels the same way, but they’re working against a deadline: if you go past 41 weeks of pregnancy, most doctors will recommend inducing.

 

If your doctor is considering inducing labor, talk with them about your Bishop’s Score. This score aggregates different measures of labor progress, and can tell you how close (or far) you are from going into labor spontaneously, as well as how likely it is that an induction will be successful.

 

Learn about what goes into a Bishops Score and why it’s so important by listening to my latest podcast:

When to say “No New Friends”

 

If there was a general category that describes the work I do with my clients, it would be transition management. My clients come to me when they’re changing jobs, starting businesses, getting married, having babies, moving, or even some combination of the above.

 

Transition is ruled by vata dosha, which in turn is a combination of the elements of air and ether (space). Transition is unsettling, and uncertain. In transition, we are aching for something that says we are HERE, solid, stable, and secure.
