    Welcoming our Baby to the world!

    So excited to announce the addition of our little one! We always knew we wanted between 3 and 5 kids and now we are THAT family with  FIVE kids!  When trying to get pregnant with baby number three, 6 months of trying seemed like forever!  We finally tried NAET , an allergy elimination technique that reset my body's reaction and ability to process progesterone correctly and ZINC correctly.  That was enough, and my body was able to do the rest.  Apparently I was able to ovulate (cycle is very irregular) and we were pregnant just a couple weeks later.
    After our 3rd little girl was born, we decided that we would give my body 11 months to recover and then start trying to get pregnant.  Well, it took over a year this time!  We ended up doing acupuncture so I could get my period going again (it had been 22 months without). Eventually we were pregnant and had our little boy!  We all went gaga over this little boy and still do!  The joy he brings to our family, we can hardly contain.
             This time around, I did not stress.  Even though I was getting older (over that 35 yr mark!), we only had to have 1 more, to have the family we desired, and were in no rush.  I feel so blessed to have the Tupler Technique in my life, because every pregnancy we have had, the recovery has been just that much better each time.  I knew I could get waistline back,  have my core feel strong again, and my keep my pelvic floor in tact if i was consistent with using my transverse. My last 3 pregnancies, I have known, the work I put in to use my transverse muscles and do my exercises, will pay dividens after pregnancy for a super quick recovery.  Using the splint helps healing go faster and it provides great support for the last trimester of pregnancy.
           We have always wanted 5 kids, but knowing what to do for my core health, really takes some pressure off of not knowing how multipler pregnancies will affect my body.  Last January, we saw Kristin Burris of Eagle Acupuncture in Eagle, ID because she is a fertility specialist, and I had had a prompting to get acupuncture done the previous June and that it would be good to start trying to get pregnant.  A couple weeks after my first two sessions, we were pregnant!  What a blessing. We were especially thrilled and feeling very blessed because we had lost a baby a couple months prior and were still mourning that.  Joy filled our void and we could sense this special spirit waiting to join our family.

          This pregnancy did wipe me out a bit in those first months (that did not happen as much my first 3 pregnancies, when I was ages 25,28, and 31), but once I got the proper supplements, and into the 2nd trimester, I got most of my energy back.  I was able to wear the Diastasis Rehab Splint, at night,  during exercise and then often for support during the 3rd trimester.

    Wearing the splint, helped keep my rectus abdominals together and the exercises helped keep the muscles strong.  I was able to attend an exercise class 3 times a week throughout the pregnancy, modifying the class to make sure I could keep my transverse engaged with each exercise, and making sure I modified the ab exercises so my shoulders were never coming off the ground.  I also made sure  I was never on all fours, and not doing planks or mountian climbers.  These modifications made sure I did not have unnecessary stress on my connective tissue  (which already is affected during pregnancy with an expanding uterus and increased relaxin hormone circulating).

    October 1st we were thrilled to welcome our baby girl Reese Elizabeth 
    7lbs 8oz, 21 inches

    Straight from heaven!  Feeling so blessed!

    Our little family (which we just added to in October!) has moved accross the country to Idaho.  A big change for us to live here, but we are enjoying it!   The climate is dry, the mountains are plentiful and the views are endless.  Don't worry, I still see clients from Missouri and Maryland via skype and am able to coach them through with great results.  Please email for skype info.

    We are now offering classes in IDAHO!
