Beautiful walk to the beach with the kids and dog! It was sunny, warm, spacious and just what we needed. AND there wasn't any complaining! Thankful for our gorgeous home & planet!

See that laptop and books right there?

Yeah, it's been sitting in that same spot untouched all day. Mason has completely hit his limit with this "distance learning". And I'll be honest I'm almost ready to call it summer break already(a month early)! It was going so well until about 2 weeks ago when his defiant personality decided it was done with this type of schooling, and depression and social anxiety in full swing! Isolation is so tough on ours/everyone's mental health and I don't know if we can take anymore of it!

2020 is the year I told myself I'd start focusing on a healthier lifestyle and one thing I've been working on is eating a plant based diet. I've still got a ways to go but I'll get there and so far I feel great! 🌳I've partnered with LightLife to bring you this post, but all opinions are my own. One thing I'm new to is tempeh, after eating the vegan tacos I made, I'm totally sold! I made these amazing tacos with sweet potatoes and Lightlife Original Tempeh. I didn't miss the meat at all!
🌳Tempeh can be used for a number of meals as a protein replacement, available for purchase at your local grocery store(I've found ours at Fred Meyer and @imperfectfoods ) typically for $3.49. Easy to prep, vegan certified, has a savory and slightly nutty flavor, non-GMO and 12g of protein.

Our Choices Matter – Educating you on pain management options for childbirth

Sharing is caring!

While pregnant, a big part of the time you are planning how your – or how you’d like – your delivery to go. Whether you’ll be a first time Mom or you’re not new to the title; you’ll be discussing pain management options with your physician. But do you know the safety and benefits of non-opioids for pain relief?

Choices Matter is a campaign designed to educate and empower patients, caregivers, and physicians to discuss pain management options, including effective non-opioid options, prior to surgery. The use of non-opioid options before, during, and after surgery can significantly decrease or, in many cases, completely eliminate the need for opioids after many common procedures, including C-section deliveries.

birth story

My delivery and post-delivery for my two children were completely different. The only similarity was they were both born vaginally. For my first I received opioids for my pain, the birth took twice as long, stayed in the hospital longer and I was prescribed opioids after birth for at home. For my second I didn’t receive any pain medication, and honestly I would choose it that way for every birth. It was shorter, I was able to walk around immediately, we only stayed in the hospital one night, all I needed afterward was acetaminophen for the pain. Let me just be clear I did plan on taking opioids to reduce my pain, I didn’t think I could handle the pain of delivering a baby. I was wrong! My body was strong and knew what to do, I was capable of so much more than I thought and I’m so glad!

Did you know 1 in 10 patients become addicted to or dependent on opioids following surgery? They can also cause unwanted side effects like nausea, constipation and vomiting. It’s very important to know the right questions to ask your doctor and check to see if a non-opioid option is available.

Facts about opioids and childbirth:
19% believe they are fine for other procedures but not childbirth
25% believe they will be able to handle the pain without opioids
21% will have no issue taking opioids
35% will let their doctor decide which pain management protocol is best

If you plan on having a baby anytime in the future please talk with your doctor about pain management options including non-opioids. To learn more about the Choices Matter Campaign visit planagainstpain.com for information on non-opioid pain-relieving options.
