ASIYA'S BIRTH STORY | PREGNANCY CARE + HOMEBIRTH PLAN

Asiya's birth story Birth Homebirth Pregnancy

I feel like every time I sit down to write a blog post, my mind is always like "where do I start?" So while a lot of you have messaged asking how the birth went and although I do want to get straight into it, I think it's important that I first talk about the care we chose during our pregnancy and the kind of birth we wanted.  Before we fell pregnant, actually, before I even got married, I knew I wanted to have a homebirth.

REBRAND/REFOCUS

I'd like to introduce you all to my new logo *drum rollllll* Yeah, not exactly a mind blowing logo so you're probably wondering why it has taken me years to create. Well, as I always like to say, less is more...ok I don't really ever say that, ever. But, less is more. Especially when it comes to a logo that i'm hoping will last the duration of this little blog/businesses life. I think part of me expected myself to create something incredible and that's why I never really created a logo as I was just never happy with it and everything...
