It’s time for another deep-dive solo pod!

You guys sent in some epic questions — about our home, why we’re moving, my routine, what we’re doing with Baby B right now, and more — and I’m so excited to pull back the curtain and share the answers. If you’re a longtime listener, you’ll know that I LOVE sharing the ‘behind the scenes’ details like this, as well as the stuff that I’m loving right now and the things that I’m currently working on in myself — and you’ll find all those things and more in this juicy episode!

Press play to hear about the house we’ve moved into and our epic plans for it, the most important things to focus on if you want to create a toxin-free home, my advice on self-care for mamas (especially if it feels like your self care is at the bottom of your list), the support we’ve called in to be our ‘village’ and allow us to keep working in our businesses, the beautiful routine we’ve established with our divine nanny, what I’ll do differently next time round when it comes to childbirth, how I surprised myself when it came to co-sleeping with our daughter, the books that have revolutionized my approach to parenting, and why you should study for birth like you’re studying for a PhD.

In this episode we chat about:

    • We’ve moved house! Get the low-down on how we found our new property, why we moved, where we’re living now, and the big vision for our new home and how to create a toxic free home (2:10)
    • My golden rules for prioritizing self-care as a mama (7:07)
    • The beautiful, supportive daily routine we’ve established with our divine nanny (and why she’s high on my gratitude list every day!) (11:12)
    • This is what a typical day of food looks like for Bambi, now that she’s walking (16:09)
    • The parenting books I love (21:39)
    • How I got my mind and body ready for birth. (Also: an answer to the question: when will we be sharing our full birth story?) (24:22)
    • My top meals for nourishing yourself when you’re a mama. What I eat in a day (Plus: the real reason we went plant-based in the first place) (29:53)
    • Books I’ve read that have blown my mind on health, wealth, and relationships (and the steps I follow while reading to retain as much knowledge as possible) (35:00)
    • The beautiful acts of self-love I’m incorporating into my routine at the moment (and how they help me prioritize my mental health) (39:35)
