COACHING FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD
June 30, 2022
I have some new followers here so I thought I would tell you my story! 🤍
In 2016 I gave birth to my daughter who was born with GBS (Group B Strep) for those of you who haven't heard of GBS before GBS most commonly causes infection in the blood (sepsis), the fluid and lining of the brain (meningitis), and lungs (pneumonia), she was taken away from us within minutes of being born while our new baby was fighting for her life, we were told to prepare for the worst and that we might not be able to take her home, 10 days later we took her home and I blocked all of that out and never dealt with it.
I started training and became the fittest and healthiest I have ever been to be the best version of myself for my daughter, I was happy, and we were living our best life.
In 2018 I fell pregnant with my son while my pregnancy itself was perfectly fine my mental health took a bad turn! I hit my second trimester and it was like my mental barrier broke, I cried for 4 days straight, I felt like to worst mum and all I wanted to do was lay in bed and cry, I was hating on my husband big time and I was so scared I would give birth to another sick baby, I was later diagnosed with server depression and anxiety, I had to attend therapy weekly until he was born for my safety and his.
After Cruz was born, I thought it would all go away but I was very wrong. Cruz was born healthy, but I struggled to connect with him, I was having breakdowns 2/3 times a day, I couldn’t return to work, I was struggling with how my body looked and wouldn't leave the house.
I returned to therapy and started working on myself so I could be the best mum and wife for my family. I started back in the gym, I signed up for a challenge that I had done a few times before with ease but this time round I was struggling, I was doubting myself that maybe I wasn't ready or cut out to be the person I was before Cruz, or that I couldn't be a mum of 2, the support from my trainers got me through, one said something to me which has stuck with me every day since "You have done this before and you can do it again, you just have to find the new you"!
I finished the challenge and felt like I needed to help others, so I did my studies to become a sports and exercise nutritionist, I started off by helping my friends and family who had just had kids and needed to find a little more balance with their life, it made me so happy to see them thrive and feel like themselves again which led me to start MIND N BODY NUTRITION.💕
I still to this day live with anxiety, I manage it with medication, exercises, making time for myself, controlling my emotions and walking away when I feel like I'm reaching my peak.
I now help women all over the world find balance in life after becoming a mother or even if they just need some guidance.
These 2 little ones in this photo are my WHY, they are why I do what I do, why I get up every day and strive to be the best I can of them. 🤍
