There's No Place Like Home Birth: Our Home Birth Story Part 4: Natural Postpartum Kit

What's In My Natural Postpartum Kit

Reusable Postpartum Pads

As many of my friends know I LOVE getting my items from Dalecia over at Love,d and as part of  my postpartum kit, these are a must! MashaAllah always great quality and design, alhamdulilah Im never  disappointed in Dalecia's products. Soooo I also use Love,d cloth menstural pads and  I'm really  glad I have been using reusable pads. My favorite method is hand washing them with a washboard because it really keeps them clean. The same detergent I will use on cloth diapers I will be using on  the cloth pads inshaAllah
The All In Two Postpartum Pad is made with waterproof PUL fabric and an all natural hemp/organic cotton fleece, this two part system of a shell and snap-in 12x12in liner. To provide the protection and reassurance us moms need after having a baby when blood flow is much heavier than your menstruation flow. The pad shell  has elastic gussests, helps  in protecting against leaks and also creates a nice little pouch in which a ziplock full of crushed ice may sit within the liner for healing. Mothers have a choice between cloth liners or disposables to use within the shell!! MashaAllah thats pretty cool right!!


  Tea For Wellness



This tea is for calming, it has chamomile leaves  and all organic content. It has calendula flowers,  red clover flowers,  lavender flowers, catnip, spearmint, skullcap, thyme, oatsraw, lemon peel and a pinch of stevia.  It is  called fairytale  tea, from  Mountain Rose Herbs, and I am praying the calming feature will lighten any after birth pains.

Essential Oils 




Using my favorite for relaxation and calming, I will use Doterra's Lavender Essential Oil and Frankincense. Put it in a little bottle with water and spray for refreshing lift. Mix with a coconut oil or almond oil and get massaged with it.
You can also use it in a diffuser during labor too

Along  with these I will be inshaAllah resting, drinking plenty of water and taking it easy. Alhamdulilah with help from children and my husband, I  won't have to worry about cooking and cleaning inshaAllah. I will try and add updates to my postpartum kit if anything changes inshaAllah

The Passing Of A Prince

One month later...  If you would have told me, that I would be eventually blogging as a widow, I would have probably said that I couldn't imagine it!

Well here I am, writing as a widow. My husband (may Allah have mercy on him, and grant him jannah ameen ameen) passed away last month, December 20th, 2016, from complications from his condition.  My whole life changed and I am learning to heal and process this tremendous loss with our six children.

I met my husband in 2006 mashaAllah, and as I like to tell people, I started this adventure 10 yrs ago when I met a Prince from Kings County (Brooklyn NYC) married him, and became his princess alhamdulilah. When we first met, I felt like "wow this handsome guy, I cant believe he is even giving me the time of day." Lord knows I am thankful for all the time of our days, our road trips, and adventures.

I think of an old status message I shared on facebook
" I've dedicated ten years of my heart to this loveable adventurous g…

5 Ways To Love Your Husband MORE

I had to blow the dust off the blog tonight, as I only write when I am feeling inspired. SubhanAllah, tonight feels like a good night to share a few thoughts on the blog.
How can you, love your husband more?


1.) Speak words that will uplift his spirit. I remember when I would be feeling nervous, and anxious about some event, and my husband (may Allah have mercy on him, ameen) would say encouraging words, that made me feel like the most confident woman in the world. We have the ability to be that voice of encouragement in our mates lives. What mountains we cannot move, when our spouse speaks life into our being! Through out the day, speak to your mate in a way that will help them be better. 
2.) Put your love into action: Yes you can say "I love you" all day long, but adding to that by doing loving gestures, show and prove what we feel inside. Surprising our spouse by writing a love note, or sending a loving text, adds a little more joy to their days. In a world where there …

As salamu alaykum To The Struggling Wife

As salamu alaykum to The Struggling wife....





You are the heart of the home. You are his support, his cheerleader, and he needs you to be by his side. Do you know how important you are to him and to your home?

You are worth more than you know. It may not be said often, but without you... Life would be a little more difficult.

I know you're struggling right now to be a better wife and I know you want to do better. Don't put too much pressure on yourself.

Keep asking Allah to guide you in becoming a better wife. Realize that you have a lot of worth and your husband knows it, he married you, he knew you were the woman who could make his life better.

Write down what you can do to make your marriage better and focus on that daily. He put you with this man, that you love, that you decided to marry. You made a commitment, and you said "I am his committed helper." so keep going! Yes it's not always easy, sometimes you want to leave... But you are a strong, praying woman. …
