Happy Feast Day of St. Gerard, Protector and Patron Saint of Expectant Mothers!

Holy Father

After ♥Bishop Mike♥ sent me the beautiful †cross† blessed✌ by ♥Pope Francis♥ he mailed me this sweet photo of our pontiff!

For all of you mommies-to-be ~ including a few of my own ♥loves♥ (who we celebrated this past weekend) ~ who are adding to your families, this prayer’s for you and your little miracles in the womb that they’ll be born and baptized plus survive and thrive

CONGRATULATIONS to all of the women who are with child out there!

Here is a ½-hour Lauren Hefez routine that you can do throughout your pregnancy

Please get the green light from your OB-GYN or Midwife on reasonable workout levels before and after you give birth.

Rules of Thumb: If you’re able to engage in physical activity, please put yourself & your baby(ies) 1st …

  • Lamaze classes to prep for child birth is #1!!!
  • Light & easy leg work (i.e., walking) would be best
  • Limit lifting with your arms (body weight or light)
  • NO core ~ just maintain back posture & balance
