“The effect of life in society is to complicate and confuse our existence, making us forget who we really are by causing us to become obsessed with what we are not.”

“Perhaps our dreams are there to be broken, and our plans are there to crumble, and our tomorrows are there to dissolve into todays, and perhaps all of this is all a giant invitation to wake up from the dream of separation, to awaken from the mirage of control, and embrace whole-heartedly what is present. Perhaps it is all a call to compassion, to a deep embrace of this universe in all its bliss and pain and bittersweet glory. Perhaps we were never really in control of our lives, and perhaps we are constantly invited to remember this, since we constantly forget it.”

My sister and I waited our whole lives to become mothers. It’s a dream we both shared and spoke about since we were little girls. -
I’m not sure if many of you know, but when I found out I was pregnant with Luca, @ziiedas found out she was pregnant a week before me.
We couldn’t believe we both fell pregnant, literally one week apart. Our due dates were so close and our dream of becoming mothers, together, was coming true. -
We spent every minute of our first trimester together, both sick as can be. Throwing up, no energy and could barely stomach anything. We stayed home sick together and tried to help each other out while our men were working. Even though we felt miserable, we were the happiest we’ve ever been. -
We started to feel our babies kicking around the same time, but Vanessa felt something was off.. At her 19 week scan, she got some very scary news. The baby had no amniotic fluid, her water broke prematurely, and was told her baby wouldn’t make it.. this news shattered our hearts. She had to deliver her baby boy, Milo, and say goodbye. -
I felt as if I lost a part of my own pregnancy. I felt very disconnected to Luca for a long time after that. Despite our pain, I had progress through the pregnancy without her. I admire Vanessa for her strength and courage. The support she still gave me even through her grief was incredible. she stayed by my side as I gave birth to Luca, who, we believe, carries and big piece of Milo within him. -
Fast forward 5 months after Luca’s birth, Vanessa fell pregnant once again. And was blessed with this beautiful, perfect, little chunk, Theo❣️ and I was with her through it all, just as she was for me. -
Vanessa is incredibly strong, and will always be my biggest inspiration. We are so blessed to be on this journey together, as mothers.
And to make it all even more special and divine, Luca, Theo, and Milo were all born on the 27th of their birth months. ✨🕊🌙💫

In honor of #worldbreastfeedingweek
Here’s a favorite photo of me nourishing my sun 🌞 .
I feel so blessed to nourish my child with my own body. The connection is unlike anything else in this world. I cherish every moment. Even when it gets challenging, even when I felt like giving up, I kept going, because I know what’s best for his little growing body.✨ it’s time we #normalizebreastfeeding because no mother should ever feel ashamed for breastfeeding their baby/toddler/child. We are going on 16.5 months and see no end in sight ✨
