From what's happening in maternity fashion to what's happening in the world of motherhood. Here's where you can get updates info and insights - all straight from Rosie!
I’m having a hard time formulating what I am trying to say on this topic, as I certainly don’t wish to offend anyone (which I suppose kind of proves the ultimate point I’m trying to make). Let me also say before I launch into this that I support all childbirth choices that end up with a healthy mom and baby, and that these choices can be different for everyone.
It’s funny sitting down to write this blog. I have to admit I feel as though I have had bloggers block since the Pregnant in Heels season finale. There were so many ‘deep’ topics to explore during the show that all of a sudden when the show ended I sort of felt devoid of really serious stuff to tell you….or at least maybe I wanted to take a break from the heavy, if you know what I mean!
A question that frequently pops up in interviews, on my Twitter and Facebook feeds and in my general day-to-day life is why MomPrep, why now? Before I dive into the multitude of reasons that led me to create MomPrep, let me back up a wee bit: for those of you who may not know what MomPrep is, it is the prenatal and postpartum education and fitness arm of my company, which currently offers courses in New York City at our uptown MomPrep studio.
For me, Episode 6 of Pregnant in Heels really speaks to the crisis in confidence that most mothers suffer from. It seems that from the very moment of conception on, nature has a way of riddling both our hearts and minds with fear and insecurities. Admittedly, these anxieties all rear their head to varying degrees, but I haven’t yet met a mother that hasn’t experienced this crisis of anxiety.
I’d like to dedicate this Mother’s Day blog post to one of the most amazing women I have ever met or I imagine I will ever meet, my Nana, who passed away last year. She was a woman who had no idea just how remarkable she was. Unwavering in her moral ground and limitless in her love, my Nana was one of a kind and it is an honor to be able to tell you a wee bit about her.
In all honesty, when I left England (agreeably, I was only 18 years old), I don’t think I had even heard of one. But then again, I hadn’t heard of a bridal shower either. I am not so sure whether this was because weddings and babies hadn’t been a huge research topic of mine at that juncture in my life, or whether such celebratory events are simply shied away from in that grey landscape that can so often swallow British culture (though let’s hope that, since my departure, both bridal and baby showers are back in force!).
