    Welcome to Season 2 of The Chosen Nest Podcast!

    Welcome to Season 2 of The Chosen Nest Podcast!

    Welcome Back! 
    I am over the moon to say that The Chosen Nest ONLINE Childbirth Education Offering is LIVE and thriving.  This is such a beautiful  course and I believe in the ways it can impact communities and births near and far.  Payment plans are in place if needed and also a scholarship fund has been started to offset costs for families who are less able to access childbirth education or postpartum support due to income. Pop by the website next week to see what it's all out in the FREE mini course that rolls out on Monday too! And browse in person collaborative options there too.  Detail on both of these are in the show notes. 
    Interested in receiving updates via email?  Opt in here to be included in our newsletter that will begin rolling out next week!  Also, as mentioned, you can join the private Facebook Community here too.  See you on the inside 
    Show notes can be found at thechosennest.com/episode15 and as always, I can be reached by janelle@thechosennest.com

    Taking in the GOOD with Gratitude

    Taking in the GOOD with Gratitude

    Welcome to Episode 14 and Happy Thanksgiving! 
    I share with you today, the practice of taking in the good.  Dr. Rick Hanson is AMAZING and I discovered his book, Buddha's Brain while in my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training at Three Trees Yoga. 
    This 3 step practice can literally rewire our brain...incredible!
    As mentioned, this episode ends season 1 of the Podcast, as I'll be taking time to enjoy the last month of the year with my family, taking in the GOOD! 
    SO EXCITED to finally announce the course launch date for Online Childbirth Education.  1/20/20 things will roll out right at the New Year for that, as I am taking time to create a more clear vision for the future of The Chosen Nest. 
    Interested in receiving updates via email?  Opt in here to be the first to set your eyes on this amazing sight.  (pssst...there might be a pre-sale offer that only email subscribers will know about)

    The Birth of Ethan Blaine: a Tale of Two under Two

    *WARNING*
    Adult language is used in this episode.  
    After popular demand and so many requests, my sweet husband returns to The Chosen Nest! We pull a late night recording to capture the birth story of our baby#2, Ethan Blaine. How our two births were so very different. Truly.
    Sharing at the end, a few fun things:
    -Our family just exited the military life, after my husband served for 15 amazing years. Thank you doesn't even begin to cover it for all that you've done in Army Aviation!
    -I graduated 200-RYT training this month, so I'm now a legit, certified yoga teacher. WOW!  Aiming to incorporate prenatal,  postpartum, and parent/child yoga options in the new year and truly looking forward to that.
    And last but not least...we are SO EXCITED to finally announce the course launch date for Online Childbirth Education.  1/20/20 it is and things will roll out right at the New Year for that, as I am taking December off to enjoy my family and create a more clear vision for the future of The Chosen Nest.  Interested in receiving updates via email?  Opt in here to be the first to set your eyes on this amazing sight.  (pssst...there might be a pre-sale offer that only email subscribers will know about)
