Hi! I’m Jessica.
I’m a seasoned kids yoga teacher, photo-taker, video-maker and blogger. Most importantly, I am a new mom. I live in Manhattan with my husband Steve, daughter Emily Rae, and Rhodesian Ridgeback, Romeo.
I started this blog when I was 9 months pregnant. I was gearing up for giving birth to my daughter in a way I never expected- a scheduled c-section. My first post was me coming to terms with delivering my baby in the way she needed, and letting go of the natural childbirth I had envisioned. The idea that some babies want to be “lifted into the world” is what gave me peace. And that is how the title of this blog was born.
I have found pregnancy and motherhood to be a transformative, inspiring and challenging experience. My intention is to share my stories in order to connect people. I believe we can support each other by honestly sharing our joys and struggles.
Let’s lift each other up!
