Hi there! There’s a lot of new faces around here and we actually remembered to take a family picture today so I thought I’d take the opportunity to introduce myself and my little fam.
.
I’m Alyssa. This is my sweet hubby, Jacob and our 15 month old (for one more day 😭), Caelix or “C” as you’ll see me refer to him on my page. C was born prematurely at 33 weeks and spent about 4 weeks in the NICU. During that short time (although it felt like years), I changed a lot as a person and the way I thought I would mother was no longer what I believed was right in my heart. My mom gut had me questioning everything from the treatment he was receiving in the NICU to the tweaks in care he would need at home in order ensure proper physical AND emotional development. It eventually led me into a rabbit hole of research. I was questioning every little thing our society portrays as “normal” for our children and realizing a lot of it is in fact not normal or developmentally appropriate at all.
.
Looking back, at first, all the research was more than likely a coping mechanism for the NICU. But it sparked a fire in me to learn the truth about what our babies actually need. Everything that I have learned on this journey has empowered me as a woman, wife, and mother and transformed me into the most “me” that I have ever been.
.
I share my journey here with all of you in hopes it will inspire you to do your research and follow your mom gut above all else. No amount of outside authority, societal norms, books, advice, and whatever else gets thrown at you can replace what you know to be true in your mom gut. And together, I believe we can help empower more and more mothers to feel the same, so thank you for following along.🧡
