Happy Mother’s Day/Month/Year to you!
What a year it has been!
Take the time to celebrate all that you have accomplished this year.

You are amazing!!!
To be a Mother
Rajneesh said” The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. I think in many ways this is true, however I think there are many ways to be a mother and I might say that conception is when the woman becomes a maternal mother.
I also know many women who have not birthed a child at all that are mothers who nurture and care for others. Two women in particular come to my mind. You see my mother left our family when I was 13 years old and never ever came back.
When I was 25 years old one of these wonderful women came into my life. She cared for me and showed me love for many years until she passed. The other mother came into my life just in the last 11 years. She keeps a gentle loving eye on me and checks in from time to time. I am grateful and blessed to have their support an guidance.
I choose to see it as the universe giving me Mothers and providing me support when I need it.
Therefore I see all women who nurture, guide and provide love to others as Mothers whether they are maternal or not.
I always want to thank and acknowledge all the Moms and Dads that allowed me to be part of their pre and post natal journey. You allowed me to be a “Mother” and “Grandmother” many many times throughout the years.
Every birth I attended, every pregnancy that I have been a part of, every baby I have adjusted have been amazing moments for me. Thank for all for that.
There is nothing like “becoming a mother”
Celebrate yourself each and everyday!
Happy Mother’s Day and Happy Month of May to you all!
Here is an excerpt from my best selling book “Building Healthy Humans”. and a special TY to Casey.
My name is Casey and I am the proud mom of two kids. A boy who is a toddler and a little baby girl called Izzy, who is just 4 weeks old.
This is the story so far of how my husband and I created our family.
We wanted to be able use the resources of our modern technological world, however we also wanted to make decisions that were rooted in what is natural and made good sense to us. We wanted balance.
For my first pregnancy, I was so focused on becoming pregnant that I literally forgot about the decisions I would have to make regarding the pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
Once I was pregnant I was excited, however I was also a little fearful some of time. I had lots of questions and was searching for answers that my doctor wasn’t providing.
My pregnancy became an anxious struggle as I continued to spend time asking questions, doing research and still not getting sufficient answers.
I was fighting for the birth that I wanted with doctors who appeared to be pushing their own agendas. It was frustrating.
Second Time Mother’s
When I decided to get pregnant for the second time, I knew I wanted to do things differently. My new OBGYN recommended that I should consider working with Dr. Pia Martin.
Soon after that conversation I began working with Dr. Pia.
Together we developed a plan that was unique to me that would allow my mind and body to be prepared for a healthy pregnancy.
We worked together for my entire pregnancy. She was the second most important partner (after my husband!) in the process of Building a Healthy Human.
Dr. Pia supported and encouraged me and I was able to have the balanced and beautiful pregnancy I wanted. I was more confident and less anxious and worried, which led to the labor and delivery I desired.
I have grown a lot as a person while working with Dr. Pia, which has helped not only with my pregnancy but it also helped me become a better mother to my first child, and a better person in general. THANK YOU DR. PIA!
I only wish that I had a copy of this book (and Dr. Pia!) prior to my first pregnancy.
This will be the book that I will give to any of my friends that are thinking about getting pregnant or have just become pregnant so they can educate themselves and have the pregnancy and birth that they want the first time around.
