Why is it that breast feeding in public is so taboo? Isn’t it what is best for our babies? I am a very strong advocate for it, but even I still feel ashamed sometimes whipping my boob out in front of people. How do we change our mentality?

Healthy fats are especially important during pregnancy! Not only do they help with brain and vision development in baby, but they help keep your skin glowing and elastic, which will help you avoid unwanted stretch marks!
(I always advocate vegetarian forms of fats, but if fish is your thing, make sure it’s wild-caught and limit your intake to 6-12 ounces per week to limit consumption of mercury and other metals that could be lurking in the waters.)

Meditation is a great way to connect with that little being forming inside of you! It can be as simple as listening to some of your favorite music and breathing deep.
Here&#8217;s a simple technique to try: Lie down on your back or sit comfortably with your legs crossed. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Bring your attention to your toes, feeling each one individually. Move your focus to your feet, then your ankles, then your calves. Work your way up through your whole body, making sure to spend at least a few deep breaths on each area of the body. When you get to the tip of your head, focus your energy on your third eye, which is on your forehead in between your eyebrows. Then bring your hands to your tummy and focus your energy on your little sweet pea! I like to focus on a mantra while I breathe deeply here; I breathe in love and as I breathe out I think of peace. Any words or ideas that have meaning to you will work perfectly!
This is a great way to bring attention and intention to your baby. It creates great mommy-baby time, even before you can start feeling baby move around in there, and creates good habits for quiet, restful time throughout the rest of pregnancy and beyond!
