The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

Sweet Relief!

Susan came to my office this morning for my 38 week appointment. The baby is measuring 37.5 weeks, which is perfectly on schedule. He is not using his uterine space wisely, however, and insists on crowding the right side--which is fine. He has preferred it since week 27. His heart rate was in the 130's.

My blood pressure was higher than normal, and the swelling in my extremities continues. This coupled with the blurry vision that I've been experiencing for the past two days led Susan to have concern over preeclampsia. She is also a big proponent of "getting in the birthing zone" and hates that I'm continuing to push myself every day with the 3 hour commute, and all my activities.

At the end of her visit, she wrote me a "prescription" to begin working from home starting I spent the last half of today scurrying around and tying up all my loose ends. I packed some file folders of work (to be done from home), and kissed my office goodbye for the next 21+ weeks. Sweet!


  1. I didn't know your midwife's name was Susan. I had to re-read the first sentence a couple of times when I saw "Susan came to my office...for my 38-week appt." I was like, "Wow, that's so nurturing of her!" LOL!!!
