Pregnancy can offer challenges on the organic path - from finding time and energy to shop and cook, to managing health and stress and of course, ultimately the birth.

Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: It's never too early to begin nourishing your child. Ayurveda recommends abhyanga oil massage to protect against Vata early on, even for babies! This detailed video reviews how to massage an infant with specific attention to the stroke types, start times and environment (warm and comfortable). Abhyanga allows the nourishing oil to lubricate the skin, muscles and joints, calms the nervous system and encourages restful sleep. *Note that they are using organic coconut oil, which is fine during summertime, but luke warm sesame oil is best thoroughout the rest of the year when it is cold, to encourage ciruclation. Enjoy this wonderful practice with your baby and the beautiful bond it creates. Namaste.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We are true followers of Bruce Lipton. We've actually had the pleasure of meeting and talking with Bruce at a Hay House Conference. He is a genius. The kindest, gentlest soul that would give you the time of day. If you take the time to watch this video we guarantee you, you'll walk away inspired and filled with life changing knowledge. This is part two of two videos. It's great on it's own but you might want to watch part one first. OMG! That sonogram at 30 minutes is phenomenal! See how the outside environment of two parents purposely arguing affects the baby in the womb. It doesn't matter what language the words are being spoken in it's the vibration of the words. Vibration is universal!

Since having a baby, I’m increasingly grateful that my husband and I are so aligned in our values—including how we live, speak, and relate with our daughter. We have both been intuitive since we were 14, and meditating or chanting since our 20’s...
Editor's Note from Lisa Phoenix: This article by Ann O'Brien offers an amazing approach as well as great communication guidelines if you are a new parent or if you are looking to deepen your communication skills on an intuitive level with a child of any age. We need to learn to “listen” to our children but also learn to “trust” what we are intuitively receiving from them as well.

Editor's Note: I adore this video! My children and I dance walk all the time and yes...sometimes it's just me, with them giggling behind me. Either way, dance walking always brightens my day and has been a lifesaver in challenging moments! Hope it inspires more playfulness in your family life too!
