One of the more difficult parts of this #adulting thing is deciding if you want children, and if so, how many?! We aren't able to look into a crystal ball and see what our complete family is going to look like. Some journeys are sprinkled with losses, and don't end up as we expected.
For much of my life I imagined a family of 3. Ryan and I are both from families of 3 siblings, and it was a dynamic we were used to. But after having a blood clot after having Shae we quickly realized that choosing to have another baby would be risky and some what dangerous. We chose that having 2 was great, we were all healthy again and having to take blood thinners while pregnant was just not something that appealed to me. This decision wouldn't have been easy without that diagnosis. I am someone who obviously loves babies and have a lot of love to give. I still hypothetically name my imaginary third baby! Am I the only one who does that?
How did you know you were done with the baby stage? Was it an easy, or incredibly loaded decision? #welovebabies#motherhood#doula#birthdoula#pregnancy#expecting#buildingalife#dynamic#growth#londonontario#theforestcity#childbirtheducation#postpartumdoulas

Today I am reflecting on the story of a girl named Brittany. She came to our center with an unplanned pregnancy and felt abortion was her only option because of her financial situation and family pressures. We confirmed her pregnancy, went through all the information and support we provide, and gave her a free ultrasound. However, she confirmed her appointment with the abortion clinic for the end of the week. Nevertheless, we continued to follow up with phone calls, letting her know she was always welcome to come back and that we were there for her.
In the meantime, our prayer chain was hard at work…I think that must have been how Mary felt when Jesus was being killed. She followed him, cried for him, was praying and trusting that God's will would be done. Then, for three days after his death, she continued to pray, and waited…

May you all have a happy and blessed Easter season! -Marie

Meet adorable little Walker!
He graduated from prenatal yoga with his lovely mom Haley, 2 months ago.
We loved getting a glimpse into your tiny personality, Walker - watching you suck your binky with an adorable, serious furrowed brow.
This is what it looks like when a mom returns from maternity break with her new baby—class stops for baby admiring! Welcome back, Cassie and baby Grayson! #welovebabies#bringusyourbaby

Oh Titan our very animated 8 year old.
Titan loves video games and sports but most of all he enjoys jumping around being loud and silly. He is a mommas boy for sure but Dad is cool and wants to be just like him when he grows up. He is a snuggler (we say snuggle bunny.) He likes making people laugh. He isn't sure if he is going to be a scientist, a vet or, work with Dad. Either way we are sure he will make us proud.
When we asked him how he felt about adoption he said "can I hold the baby all the time?" Our answer of course was yes! #adoption#wewilladoptyourbaby#wewilladoptyourbabymovement#futurebigbrother#welovebabies

A partir da 16ª semana de gestação, os babies começam a desenvolver o sistema nervoso de forma completa. Nesse momento, a conversa e a música ao pé da barriga ajudam na adaptação do novo mundo e auxiliam na aprendizagem cognitiva durante a formação. #bambinilojaumuarama#WeLoveBabies

Happy Easter Weekend you guys. We’re still very humbled and grateful for reaching 1000 followers. So we wanted to give $100 to one of our followers for Easter dinner this year.
Please see the rules first: Okay so it’s Easter Weekend😊. My cousin/business partner, and I are tired of the same Traditional American Easter Dinners we’ve had growing up as a kid. ( Yes we’re 🇺🇸). Therefore since she’s in town, we wanted to try a new recipe this Easter. PS, I’m not the best cook, I know my truth lol. But she’s an amazing cook. I’ll be in the kitchen supervising. So the person with the best recipe will be rewarded $100 tomorrow morning at 9 AM our time. Let’s drop those recipes and please follow the rules below:
1. Follow us and like our last two posts- No need to tag anyone.
2. Drop 👇🏼your favorite recipe in the comment section.
3. PS, our friends tagged in the photo will be selecting the winner. Happy Easter Weekend.
4. Only the ones who followed the directions will be considered.
5. We’re very cultured and love international dishes. So please don’t let that stop you.
Donovan with our new puppy Tucker.
Donovan is 13 and all things middle child. Haha. but, jokes aside he is our sports guy. When Phillip and him hang out you might as well either jump in the sports talk or not exist. He also considers himself a sneakerhead (he suckers us into buying expensive tennis shoes basically) .
Phillip has coached all the kids but Donovan the most because he plays almost EVERY sport. Basketball and Football are his top 2. He hates books unlike Cain however, makes A's and B's without effort. He has big dreams to be a mechanical engineer and work with dad. If I didn't know better I would think Phillip was his biological dad. They are almost the same person. It's awesome to watch.
Why is Good Friday "good"? Because it is the day the Lord took on himself the sins of the world for our salvation. From the outside, we would look at this mystery as a contradiction - that something good could ever come from something so terrible. When a woman comes into our center, we can be tempted to think she is far from God - that her decisions and her pregnancy are a result of her distance from God. But God is not far from her suffering! In fact, it is the love and mercy of God that leads women to our center! In their darkness, God is closer than ever and he is reaching out to them through the unplanned pregnancy.

Reposted from @maternityconciergeconsultants - MCC has partnered with a new prenatal yoga studio, and will now be offering prenatal yoga complimentary to all of our new clients coming from abroad.
If you're pregnant and looking for ways to relax or stay fit, you might be considering prenatal yoga. But did you know that prenatal yoga might also help you prepare for labor and promote your baby's health?
What are the benefits of prenatal yoga?
Much like other types of childbirth-preparation classes, prenatal yoga is a multifaceted approach to exercise that encourages stretching, mental centering and focused breathing. Research suggests that prenatal yoga is safe and can have many benefits for pregnant women and their babies.
Prenatal yoga can:
*Reduce stress and anxiety
*Increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth
*Decrease lower back pain, nausea, headaches and shortness of breath
What type of Exercises or Classes did you take to help you prepare for Childbirth? We want to know.
Heading for the Cross during this Holy Week?
I’ve got mixed feelings! It’s exciting to think of the gift of Easter coming -- but we’ve gotta get through Jesus in His agony, walking with His cross and the Crucifixion first. It’s such a blessing to be working with the pregnant women who need help carrying what they believe is their cross… - all the while knowing that the greatest blessing is what they are carrying inside of their womb! Their Baby! The Unplanned Pregnancy can be the greatest horror for a woman in life! It can be filled with shame, guilt, fear, pain…And yet the pregnancy is the greatest blessing the woman can ever experience!
