Friday Finds: body positivity, travel plans, how to help at the border, and more! / by Meredith Westin

If last week was all about attending births, this week was all about catching up. Catching up on housework, catching up on me time, and catching up on editing birth sessions. Here are previews of a few of the births I documented last week: a second baby in St. Paul, a home birth in Minneapolis with Gail Tully, a speedy fifth time birth, and a remarkably serene first time birth. Of course I spent some time online in between editing sessions. Keep scrolling to see some of the links that resonated with me this week.


If you’re local, check out these fantastic businesses:

  • Hola Postpartum: a fantastic postpartum meal delivery service

  • Northern Natural Gardens: a sustainable landscape company specializing in native plants, pollinator gardens, and invasive plant removal and I am so stoked about their mission

  • Hairy Poppins: a Dog Trainer Professional who geeks out on dog behavior and training. She uses evidence-based positive training techniques, and understands the importance of effective communication and consistency while working with and walking dogs. Serving South Minneapolis for walks and training.

On a personal note, I’m offering a special on my intimate Real Postpartum sessions in celebration of the upcoming World Breastfeeding Week. I’d love it if you’d spread the word! Have a great weekend!
