Shortly after delivering Channing, I got connected with an awesome company specializing in women's recovery pants, SRC Health. I will admit, prior to trying a pair for myself, I was a bit iffy on whether or not recovery pants really worked. Plenty of discomforts come along with delivery (both VBAC and C-Section); furthermore, postpartum contractions can be uncomfortable and pesky. In the first few weeks of my recovery, I spent more time on my feet than expected. With a baby in the NICU, I had parking decks and hospital hallways to traverse multiple times every day. My SRC Health Recovery Pants helped provide support especially in the early days; additionally, as long as my pants were clean - I barely noticed the discomfort of postpartum contractions at all. The only problem with my recovery pants, I only had one pair!
The SRC Health team created a fabric that offers insane compression without restriction. Additionally, the fabric blend used in the recovery pants returns to its original size and shape after wash & wear.

The Baby Essentials class description clearly stated that swaddling was one of the key components of the class, I was sold.Read More

26 weeks, 26 pounds, and over 8 hours of sleep per night are just a few of the things that separate me from my pre-pregnancy self. Unless I’ve gone hours and hours without food, I’ve never been one of those people who can down a huge meal in one sitting; in fact, I’ve always preferred smaller meals with intermittent snacks. My normal routine involves a hearty breakfast, a smaller lunch, and a light dinner with a glass of wine. Pregnancy has changed things quite a bit...Read More
