Introducing Mama’s Bump Squad 2.0, our second group of adorable pregnant women all due around the same time. These smart mamas are all on a path to safer products and they want to share their experiences during the glorious – and sometimes uncomfortable, itchy, achy and anxious – journey of pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum too.
Earth Mama invites you to follow along with #mamasbumpsquad on Instagram as we watch their miraculous bumps grow!
Hi! I'm Katie and I live a pretty extraordinary life! I'm a full time mama and wife (to my sweetheart.. We hit our 10 year milestone this year!! ::Happy Dance::) but people usually are more interested in my professional life. I wear a few different hats as a professional model, actress and photographer; and there's never a dull moment. I've brought my spunky 2 year old "Baby G" along with me to every casting and shoot since he was a little 6 week old, and truthfully he's every bit his mama's son - a charismatic, camera ready, ham sandwich, studio baby.
To our merry band of misfits' joy, we are expecting baby #2 this September! My husband and I love kids and we're thrilled to be growing our family. We also love to travel together; last year alone, we got to visit 5 countries!
I've always been interested in a greener lifestyle, but since becoming a mom I'm pretty darn conscious of everything I put on our skin, in our bodies, and anything we use at home that may toxic - which makes me the resident barefoot hippie of my group, (a title I wear proudly!) Come say hi over @TheKatieDeLuca
Katie's due date is 9/24/18.
Hi! I am Emilia, a mother of 3.5 old twin boys, a 1.5 old little man and... a FOURTH little gentleman due late this September. I am living the Southern California dream with my fire fighting, college sweetheart husband (going on 15 years together!) and my soon to be crew of #4under5. As a part-time high school special education teacher, I have LOTS of time at home with my family and I wouldn't want it any other way!
Aside from being a home boss, I also have a passion for health and fitness and have been teaching classes/training for the past seven years. I am a total eco-mommy who’s purpose in life is to raise kind, compassionate, accepting and eco-conscience young men. I share my love for life on my blog, Thriving Wives, and hope to help everyone "strive to thrive".
I am living that HypnoBirthing, VBAC owning, breastfeeding, baby-wearing, essential oil loving, cloth diapering dream for the past 5 years...and counting!
Emilia's due date is 9/27/18.
Hi there! My name is Courtney and I am currently pregnant with our 5th baby
(including one angel baby). We are over-the-moon excited to be expecting our
new (and final) baby this October! Though I may have had to twist my husband's
arm a little to try for one more. My sweet husband, Adam, and I have been
married for 5 years and are the proud parents to 3 fun loving kiddos - Kylee
(10), Ethan (3), and Sawyer (16 months). We live in sunny Arizona with our
Great Dane and four cats.
I am a lover of donuts, cozy blankets, and warm bubble baths. I'm so grateful to have been able to pursue my dream job of being a stay at home mom 3 years ago. Becoming a mom is what set me on a path to finding quality natural products, such as Earth Mama! Over the last year, I have decided to put my love of photographing my kids to good use by becoming a brand rep to support various small shops on Instagram. I am excited for the adventure ahead and absolutely thrilled to be joining the Bump Squad 2.0 team!
Courtney's due date is 10/24/18.
Hi, I'm Tarah! I am 36 years
old and live in New Albany, IN with my husband and two boys (I was born a
Florida girl, so I am always trying to get us back to a warmer spot). Avery is
almost five, Norrin will be two in September, and now I am pregnant with our
third, who will be here in October!
I stay home with my boys, but I do use nap time to try and get a little work done each day. I went back to school a few years ago and received my Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. I don't have tons of time to focus on my work right now, but I do some freelance health writing, publish articles on my own site ( whatigather.com), and I am finishing up two books that are all about helping families get more real food into their homes.
Tarah's due date is 10/26/18.
Hello, my name is Kayawna, 26, I’m in pursuit of finishing my Bachelors degree online in Alternative Medicine December 2018. With plans to further my education as a Naturopathic Doctor next fall. I’m a stay at home mom currently. My husband and I live a plant based lifestyle - we research everything. This is our second unassisted pregnancy and birth that will be at home. I plan to tandem breastfeed my 22 month old son while pregnant. Super excited to be a part of the Mama’s Bump Squad community and have your support this pregnancy. Thank you!
Kayawna's due date is 10/28/18.
Hey y’all! I’m Emily Pardy. I live in Nashville, Tennessee with my husband Josh and 3 daughters: Matilda (8), Daphne (6), and Vivian (2). We suffered a miscarriage in January, and are thrilled to be expecting a rainbow baby due in November! I look forward to sharing this pregnancy and getting to know the other moms as well. I always get HUGE with my babies, and it never fails to make me laugh when strangers stare at my belly! Haha! This baby will be my fourth c-section, and I love to encourage other moms who also share a cesarean birth story. I’m grateful to join this group, as motherhood changed my life so much I decided to build my career around it! In 2015, I had my first book published, a motherhood memoir called For All Maternity. That same year, I completed my Masters in Marriage & Family Therapy; and, in 2016 founded Ready Nest Counseling, a private practice that helps couples and individuals successfully transition through the life phases of conception, pregnancy, postpartum, infertility, or loss. I love bringing awareness to this stage of life, build community, and remind myself that this journey doesn’t have to be a lonely road!
Emily's due date is 11/25/18.
