Self Care with Kristy Rodriguez
Kristy is a pre- and postnatal wellness expert and advocate, is the owner and founder of Pure Nuture, a business devoted to educating and inspiring women to nurture and nourish themselves through pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period.
Self-care is incredibly important for all of us, but it far too often is the very last thing that we prioritize amid hectic schedules and busy lives—parents especially, which is so backwards: parents need to practice self-care more than anyone, because our children depend on us, on our physical and mental wellbeing, to thrive. And at no time during motherhood is the direct relationship between a mother’s wellbeing and her child’s health quite so evident as during pregnancy. As such, the first, and perhaps greatest, act of love a mother can show toward her growing baby is to nurture herself.
Kristy was inspired to dedicate her work to supporting women who are pregnant or trying to get pregnant, as well as mothers of newborns. She was diagnosed with postpartum depression after her first pregnancy, not realizing that this is something that could happen any time in the first year after birth. Kristy was diagnosed when her daughter was ten months old. For these reasons and many others, Kristy feels a calling to support women during this unique and special time. Not only to feel their best, but also to potentially prevent postpartum depression and/or postpartum anxiety.

Because I know you're awesome like that! And we all know it takes a village. So the more we share the more we can come together, roar together and conquer this thing called life together.
If you are like me, you have hardly anytime to sit down much less READ. I have made it a point this new year to read more books. Because we cannot grow without learning. But the mom life makes it almost impossible right? That's where I have found my love for Audible. I can fold laundry, walk the dog, cook dinner or be in the car and listening to a good book. Whether it's a self help or fiction book I can fit my reading time in while doing other things at the same time. Multi-tasking! What moming is all about!
