Trick or Treat 10.31.17


Happy Halloween! One of my favorite celebrations of the year. Why? It’s fun with no expectations. And, I seriously love candy. Sugary, crunchy, chewy candy. Skittles, starbursts, Swedish fish, sprees, nerds, fireballs. Sweet & sour is the bomb! I don’t allow myself to indulge in candy very often anymore as sugar physically & internally hurts my body. But, tonight I partake. May my body tolerate. 
As you know, Halloween is rich in history. Its origins run deep. I have read about religious meanings and pagan rituals. They say the veil is thinnest on All Hallows’ Eve. 

What ever happened to the shouting at the top of your lungs, “TRICK OR TREAT?!” When you approach my door, BEWARE! Standing in my power is, however, electrifying.

Self-Care During Pregnancy & Postpartum Class – Come meet us at the Empowering Fearless Birth Expo – 2.18.17 SLC, Utah

efb-mills-self-care

Hello!

I just want to personally invite you to Utah’s largest pregnancy & birth event as my guest! This is an annual expo and conference that is run by Empowering Fearless Birth (EFB). It will be held on Saturday, February 18, 2017. Doors open at 1:00PM, located at Miller Conference Center, SLC. Please, visit www.empoweringfearlessbirth.com for all the juicy expo details!

Have you ever attended an EFB event? Well, then you know the caliber of these events and you definitely will not want to miss this one! If you haven’t been before, you won’t be disappointed as it’s always packed with Utah’s top notch birth related vendors, speakers and the premiere of incredible birth films!

I’m excited to be a vendor and speaker! This will be my third opportunity as an EFB presenter, therefore it’s an honor to have been selected again. The first time, I was on a birth panel answering audience questions about birthing in a hospital. The second time, I spoke in a more intimate setting representing the benefits of a postpartum doula.  This time, I will be presenting my signature class, “Self-Care During Pregnancy & Postpartum.” I would love for you to attend this amazing expo! Stop by my vendor booth and say hi.
