Your parenting journey will be whatever you allow it to be. When your baby is in the womb, it feeds off of ‘you’ literally. When they come into the Earth realm, babies and children continue to feed off of whatever we as the adults give off. When we nourish our souls as adults, it nourishes our children too. Take care of yourselves first, as you strive to nurture and empower others.
