Sweet Peas, Pods & Papas: All About Birth, B@@bs & Babies
Otter and I had the privilege of attending an amazing, heart-opening event last evening. When I was pregnant with her, I met Katie Hess and Lisa Reinhardt at an event for The Bump. That "chance" meeting introduced the power of flowers and intentional chocolate into our lives, for which I am forever grateful.
Whether you are pregnant, birthing or postpartum, this book applies to you. It applies to anyone who is breathing space and wanting a more meaningful life experience.
Upcoming Events with Sweet Pea Births!!
We are so excited to announce that we have lots of new classes coming up at Modern Mommy Boutique during our hiatus from teaching Bradley Method® Classes. (We start our next session in March!)
Sibling Prep - New baby
Bruss will talk to the parents about strategies for the transition: phrases to use, how to talk about the new baby, reminding the older siblings that they are important, too!
I will be doing story time with the littles and a craft. We will be emphasizing how BIG they are and how your newest Sweet Pea is "just too little!
Join us tonight for a Signing Story Time!!
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
By Eric Carle
Sponsored by Sweet Pea Births and Modern Mommy Boutique
One of our SPB alumni mamas, Tanya Bland, who is a certified Signing Time instructor, will lead the group. First she will introduce some of the ASL signs that she will be using in the story. Then, she will read the story using ASL. We will close the time with an art activity based around tonight's story.
I hope to see you tonight at Modern Mommy Boutique!

Event details at the end of this post
We are excited to participate in the second event hosted by PB&J Events that is specifically geared towards and designed for new and expecting parents. We had the pleasure of showing at theirfirst event- so much fun that we are back again!
We will be sharing information for families interested in having healthy pregnancies, as well as ideas for families who are interested in preparing for an unmedicated birth.
It's that time of year again! If you haven't experienced a Club MomMe Fest, then you won't have any excuses left...they have provided all SPB readers with a $10.00 off discount off *any* ticket option for the April 19, 2015 event(link provided at the bottom of this post).
I was able to attend last year's Spring Family Fest - what a tremendous opportunity! The keynot address was by Dr. Harvey Karp (life changing!!), and there were several panels geared towards families who are in their childbearing years.
HAPPY First week of summer! I wish you lots of shade and cool breezes...we are loving our mister tube that Coach Bruss bought from Lowe's Home Improvement - it makes sitting outside while the kids play bearable!!

Welcome to the weekend, AZ Families!! For those of you that are expecting *please* stay hydrated - take water with you everywhere! If you are breastfeeding a nursling, take care of you and your Sweet Pea by staying hydrated - dress in loose layers of light colored, breathable clothing so that you can add or subtract layers depending on whether or not you are in air conditioning.
All the farmer's markets are starting and ending earlier - have fun and stay in the shade if you are out and about :)
Welcome to the week - hope you have a great one!!

If you are out and about this weekend:
Whether you are inside or outside, staying hydrated is a top priority as the temperatures continue to rise. Pregnant mamas, keep in mind that your water needs will change as your baby grows. One way to calculate daily intake is to take your current weight and divide it by two – the answer is how many ounces of water you need per day.
I am heading to Orange County today to attend theClub MomMe Spring Family Fest
. If you are not able to attend in person, please feel free to be a part of the event by following us on Twitter (@sweetpeabirths) and on Instagram (http://instagram.com/sweetpeabirths) to see what we are seeing and doing throughout the day.
