Supporting Mamas & Children Holistically
Posted on July 04 2023,
The health and well-being of mother and child are intricately connected: one cannot thrive without the other. So often, a mother’s natural instinct is to put her family’s needs before her own – but over time, this inevitably leads to depletion, exhaustion, and burnout.
The family unit thrives when both mother and child are nourished and rested, with each of their needs being fully met. But when a mother removes herself from the equation, her inner resources begin to evaporate. While self-sacrifice may seem noble at first, the greatest act of love is often self-care. How can we show up fully for our families, and ourselves, when we’re pouring from an empty cup?
When we begin to tend to our own needs, and nourish both our internal and external landscape, we create a sense of fullness that radiates out into the world. We can shine our light, and pour our love, from an overflowing cup, and parent with more patience, stability, tenderness, and peace. Finding avenues of self-support creates the foundation for a woman to more easily become the mother she wants to be.
Here at Roberts Creek Well-being, we offer a variety of products to support both Mother and Child; from herbal blends to soothe the nervous system and locally-made skincare for radiant skin, to organic purees for hungry tummies and a wide selection of children’s vitamins. In today’s guide to Supporting Mamas & Children Holistically, we’re so excited to share a collection of our favourite supplements, foods, and lifestyle products to nourish the whole family.
