Caring for Self: Yoni steams

Yoni steams aka vaginal steams appear to be making a comeback these days. Tomorrow I’ll be getting my very own sitz bath from a local pharmacy. That way I can set myself up whenever I feel to in my home. It’s gonna be blissful! Sistahs, let’s get in and teach our girls.  There are so many benefits. ‘

Planning for a c-section?

Don’t be fooled. You still have the opportunity to optimize pregnancy and birth. Don’t get it twisted. It’s still YOUR birth. Consider making some things a priority like prayer/meditation/quiet time, affirming yourself regularly, journalling, planning that mama blessing (aka blessingway), finding a doula, solidifying your birth plan etc. The following resources may help too:
