Stop Speeding Through Healing, "Toughing it Out," and "SuperMoming" Your Way to Exhaustion!

How to Get Your Home Running on Autopilot,
Love Spending Tons of Time with Your Baby and Tot,
and Feel Amazing While You Do It 

Dear Mama,

Do you feel like there's advice everywhere on what to expect during your pregnancy, what to buy for baby, and even how to bathe your baby – but you don't see much on what life is really like when your baby comes?

Are you worried about what the transition to being a mama will be like for you (or how you'll juggle two or more) – perhaps secretly wondering you're enough to tough out those early weeks?  Are you in the middle of life with baby now... and struggling?

Have you worried about getting your body back, if postpartum depression will be a problem, or even figuring out who this new you with the "Mom label" is going to be?

If so, you're not alone!

I'll tell you a secret – our culture says that being a mother is an incredible thing, a huge blessing, and you'll just love it. As a mama to a big family, I can tell you that all of that is true...

...but it's also true that most women worry about the transition to motherhood (and even to mothering two or more!) – and most realize after baby comes that it's not exactly how they imagined it.

Having a baby is a big transition. And yes, a big part of that is baby care and the logistics of juggling life with kids...

...I can actually promise you that you'll figure out the basics pretty easily.

It's figuring out how to care for yourself while you're mothering your little ones that's the real challenge.

It's letting go of the need to speed through that crucial "4th trimester" (because honestly – who talks about how important it really is?) and "bounce back" to supermom status...

Maybe it seems obvious – you know how to eat, how to take a shower, how to get places. But having a baby can change a lot of things.

I've been helping pregnant and new mamas for over a decade and the #1 issue that I help new mamas realize they're struggling with is...

...Yep – I said "realize" – most new moms don't even realize they're not eating enough!

It's a problem that can spiral downward into stress, fatigue, and even postpartum depression.

Not eating.

If something so basic is so easy to miss when you're a new mama,
what about the bigger things?

  • Taking the time to help your body heal
  • Regaining core strength so you feel strong and you are strong
  • Looking forward to each day – both the joys and the challenges it brings
  • Keeping yourself positive...
  • ...and creating the positive home you want your child to grow up in
  • Feeling confident about your parenting choices
  • Knowing you're doing the best job you can do – and that it's exactly what your child needs
  • Staying richly and vibrantly YOU beyond the wonderful role of mother
  • Feeling like you're vital and excited about life today and that there's YOU for the future
  • Knowing you're taking care of yourself so you're healthy for your grandkids – and all the other adventures ahead...

Wow.

When you think about it, that's a lot.

You're trying to make sure you know how to put on a diaper the right way.

Who has time for these other things?

Let me share another secret...

...all the things I listed above don't have to take a lot of your time...

...but they are vitally important!

"The very damaging, frightening part of postpartum is the lack of perspective and the lack of priority and understanding what is really important."

-Brooke Shields

Being a mama isn't just about changing diapers and, well, keeping the baby alive. It's also not about being the perfect parent.

But it IS about being you and finding joy and satisfaction in what you're doing now – and feeling like you're honoring who you are while mothering your children.

Think about it – honoring you and your needs
teaches your children to honor themselves and their needs.

Here's something else to consider:

When you are in tune with your own needs and honoring those,
you understand how to tune into your child's unique needs and how to honor him, her, (or them!)

Of course, the big question is...

How do you make that happen?

What if You Could...

  • Feel confident (almost) every day
  • Handle the tough moments with patience and grace
  • Get your housework going so it basically takes care of itself
  • Feel strong and vibrant
  • Stay tuned into your baby's needs
  • Feel great about being YOU

Things often go unexpectedly as soon as your baby is born – most of us are planning for a good birth (often a natural birth) and expect that the euphoria of birth will carry us through into a mostly blissful motherhood experience with lots of baby cuddles and wonderful times breastfeeding.

So I've had 8 great births and 8 great experiences meeting my baby...

...and I can tell you that I've still found myself in tears after more than a few of those babies!

Sometimes it has nothing to do with your baby – loneliness, after a baby arrives, has been a big issue for me. Feeling isolated is never good. Or feeling frazzled, like I just can't figure things out.

"Bad moments don't make bad mamas"

-Lysa Terkeurst, Unglued

Sometimes it's a complete surprise to think that I have an amazing baby, had a good birth, and yet still somehow something is a struggle.

Over time I've learned...

...Preparation makes a huge difference.

Mothering yourself during the postpartum time – and even throughout your baby's first year – makes a lifelong impact on you and on your baby.

When the whole world is going ga-ga over expensive strollers, video baby monitors, and designer diaper prints, it can be hard to think of something as "insignificant" as your own well-being.

But this is actually ancient wisdom we need to bring back...

...women in the past understood that women need to be mothered into motherhood.

Midwives have a saying that you should "do the healing now, or do the healing later" – ancient Chinese proverbs take that even farther, believing that if you don't take the time to find a balance now, you'll struggle into old age!

That may seem superstitious and old-timey (like your grandma's fashion advice), but science actually supports it.

Being a mother brings health and vitality to women into old age – if you have taken care of yourself while you're mothering!

That's why I've created a unique class on living, loving, and thriving through your postpartum time – and beyond.

Feeling Great Through Baby's First Year

I've spent more than a decade working with mamas...

Step 1: Understand an incredible secret:

Taking care of YOU is the best way to take care of your baby!

We also cover the often overlooked "fourth trimester" - and why it's just as important to prepare for an plan as it is with your first three.  This class is packed with practical steps to make the newborn period a relaxed time really get to know your baby.

Feel like you missed this important time with your baby (believe me, you're not the first mama to try and rush through - or to encounter health issues with you or baby)?  We'll cover vitally important ways you can capture the most important benefits of the 4th trimester - no matter where you're at now <3

  • Essential questions to ask yourself before your baby arrives

Step 2: Keeping up with the house and errands is one of the most overwhelming parts of motherhood - from baby's birth and way beyond 😉  In this session we'll talk about how to make your home run (practically) on autopilot - plus how to successfully juggle time with your new baby and your older kids <3

  • Why "feathering the nest" matters... plus how to do it easily - no matter how much else you're trying to handle
  • Get your house under control FAST (so you can focus on what counts)

  • What happens when you stop and take time to rest (you might be surprised by just what your body does when you slow down...)
  • Keep your milk supply strong, month after month

Plus Some AMAZING BONUSES

Bonus #1: Live Calls with Kristen

Value: $750

Our Familys Story

This is your chance to ask me ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that you need to know when it comes to handling the 4th trimester - or beyond.  As you're going through the class, I know you're going to have some questions about how to best apply what you discover to your situation.

That's why you have access to 5 LIVE Q&A sessions included in your tuition, where you get to join me and the other class members as we get practical, supportive - and answer your questions.

You'll also get recordings of these calls, so you can go back and listen to anything you want to hear again.  Since we'll cover so many practical tips and plenty of inspiration, you WILL want to listen to them again 😉

Bonus #2: Go to Sleep!

Value: $67

Go to Sleep Postpartum

Getting a good night's sleep is one of the biggest struggles parents face - in the newborn period, throughout the first year, and even into toddlerhood!

That's why I've included my full Go to Sleep! course as a bonus module for Feeling Great.  This in-depth class will help you understand what "sleeping like a baby" REALLY means - and how you can start getting better sleep for you and baby tonight.

This class is completely supportive no matter what your sleep situation is - co-sleeping, baby in the same room, or if you sleep better separately.  And if you want to change up the sleep situation, there are strategies to do that too! 

Helpful handouts and logs give you a clear idea of what's really going on (believe me, after 7 kids, I know that sleep deprivation can make it hard to think straight) and tested, practical strategies help you get to sleep at night and help your little one get the naps he or she needs, too.

Bonus #3: Stopping Pain in Pregnancy & Postpartum

Value: $27

Moms are often surprised when pregnancy "aches and pains" don't melt away after baby comes...

...or carrying a hefty baby (not to mention your toddler and preschooler) around all day can bring its own aches and pains, creaks and groans!

This class walks through a few easy exercises you can do daily to bring relief within just a couple of days.  Quick videos show you step-by-step just how simple this is.

What you discover in this class will make a life-long impact, is safe to use during pregnancy, and makes a great compliment to chiropractic care, physically therapy, and any other support you choose to use.

Bonus #4: How to Have a Strong Pelvic Floor for Life

Value: $27

What do belly laughs, trampolines, jogs, jumping right in, and sneezes all have in common?

...Moms are scared of all of them due to pesky pelvic floor problems.  Laughing a little too hard or jumping right in can cause an embarrassing little squirt (and we're not talking about baby!)

This class will take you through my practical steps to restore strength to your pelvic floor - naturally.  If you think kegels are the only answer but find it frustrating that they just don't seem to work, you'll be thrilled to dive into these life-changing and surprisingly simple steps to get your pelvic floor strong - for life!

This class also includes a holistic program to preventing tearing during birth and keep your body strong during pregnancy as well as for decades after you have your baby.

Bonus #5: Smart Mama's Guide to Breastfeeding

Value: $27

Breastfeeding is completely natural - but that doesn't mean it always comes naturally! 

This bonus covers the basics of breastfeeding - and beyond. 

Did you know that bottle-feeding has changed the way we think of baby feeding - and even impacted the breastfeeding advice lactation consultants give mothers?  It took only a few decades for wisdom traditionally passed from woman to woman to disappear - and the new "techniques" we invented to try and refill the gap didn't always work.

Discover what laid-back breastfeeding really is, and how it can reduce stress for you, make latching on easier for baby, and even give you more time (and a free hand) for your older kids.  Videos help walk you through what you need to know and solid solutions mean your milk supply stays strong month after month.
