Little did I know that I was pregnant the last time I visited the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It was too early for pregnancy symptoms, and although we were trying, I never would have guessed that I was carrying my child in this picture. To become a mother, was something that I remember praying for, crying for, and preparing my body for.
Two years before we decided to start our family, Charles and I knew we wanted to bring our little one into a healthy home. Not only that but, as with all parents, we also wanted to raise the healthiest child possible. I knew that the health of my baby would start before conception. I needed to create the healthiest environment possible to grow my little baby.
We removed as many toxins from our home as possible, and began to focus on eating real, whole foods, and living a natural lifestyle. After two years of trail and error, I finally found out that I was expecting in May of 2015. I strongly credit a healthy lifestyle and whole foods diet to my successful pregnancy. I highly recommend The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby and Child Care if anyone is trying to conceive.
