Can you relate to this attachment style?

I did as soon as I began to study it. Especially my overcompensation, clinginess and codependency in all relationships.

After doing my own work, and continuing my work, it is so nice to be free of the irrationality this attachment style can create.

We are honored to work with other couples in identifying their attachment styles, how it shows up in relationships and ways to move from an unhealthy spaces to a healthier ones…

It just comes naturally to her…

My birth assistant, Dianna, is really benefiting from her background as an EMT! We are so grateful to have her to draw blood during prenatal visits. 🖤

Did you know that massage isn’t one size fits all? We offer different styles of massage to best fit YOUR needs.

Swedish… this is your more “classic” massage, used for relaxation.

Medical… a bit more detailed, this can be utilized for chronic pain or injury.

Lymphatic… this helps encourage movement of lymphatic fluid, aiding the body’s natural removal of waste.

Don’t they each sound amazing?
Which would you choose? 🖤

Do you have an avoidant attachment style?

If you identify with this attachment style and find yourself wanting to experience things differently find the space to learn to try a few things:

*Build and value tour self-worth
*Learn how to set and vocalize boundaries
*Work on communicating effectively
*Learn self-compassionate and be compassionate towards others

Taking time out for self exploration is a sacred practice. A practice that is ever present in the loves of those seeking to have and maintain healthy relationships with self and others.

I’ve been exploring my attachment styles and have had some eye opening moments.

Small But Mighty…

“Shaped like a parachute, the placenta is a highly specialized organ that helps support the development of your baby. The average placenta is 9 inches across, about 1 inch thick, and typically weighs just over 1 pound. Blood from both mom and baby pass through the placenta but never mix. At full term, about 20 ounces of mom’s blood passes through the placenta every minute. That alone is amazing (and also explains why pregnancy is so exhausting).”
