I’M TRYING

Written by Meg Broadbent *  “I’m not pregnant.” It’s a phrase I’ve gotten used to saying lately, especially in texts to my husband. Tonight, I texted the same phrase to a few girlfriends, the ones who are in the know, who wait with me each month, eagerly awaiting day 28 when I’ll wake up in…

PREGGO BLUES

-PSA- Experiencing feelings like the ones you’re are about to encounter in this post is completely normal. Feelings like these are WHY we created the Rebel Mama community in the first place – a safe haven to open up and be raw with one another; a place of refuge where you can always count on…

THE CUT: NUDE YOGA GIRL & MEAGHAN JARENSKY

Every now and again, Nikita and I love to give some shout-outs to the Instagram personalities that inspire us most. Even when they have no idea we actually exist. Ahhh the beauty of Social Media – it can often be a deep, dark rabbit hole of very useless information (and way too many opinions) but…

THE CUT: PAIGE CRAIG

Instagram is intentionally mindless. It’s where we turn to escape out own realities, to dive into a world of otherness, to get a glimpse into lives that look nothing like our own… For me, the process usually goes: Scroll, Scroll, Scroll, Scroll, get bored, put phone down, pour glass of wine, drink the wine, go…

REBEL SPIRIT

Our girlfriend Shauna has always been a trip. She’s the friend you’ve bumped into in foreign countries; the girl who would never choose vodka over tequila, and the one who always had the most obvious zest for life. Sure, it was a surprise when she told us she was expecting; but it was certainly no…

PICTURE THIS | WHO WANTS TO WIN A PHOTOSHOOT?

As some of you may know, I like to take a photo or two. Actually, thousands if you were to ask my laptop memory… You see, back in the days of childless freedom, I travelled a shit ton and all of my captures were full of picturesque places and interesting people. Even when I wasn’t…

MINDFUL PARENT: BE HERE, NOW

“Mindfulness helps you go home to the present. And every time you go there and recognize a condition of happiness that you have, happiness comes” – Thich Nhat Hanh Since I have been introducing yoga and meditation to this amazing community, I couldn’t leave out a mindfulness post. Mindfulness is a practice that has changed…

THINGS YOU CAN LEARN FROM A 6-MONTH-OLD MAN

TGIF Rebels! Today’s FlashBack Friday Post is something I conjured up a year and a half ago, when I was sleep deprived, bored as f*ck, and needed to make light of the tiny intruder that was my son. I thought to myself – what is the world like through this kids eyes? And is there…

Too late, you’re pregnant and now you need some real talk? WE GOTCHU. Here are some recent, unedited excerpts straight from our Rebel…

A TALE OF TWO BOOBS

When I got out of the shower this morning, I glanced up at my reflection in the mirror and once again found myself face-to-face with a pair of gigantic, milk-filled boobs. It’s been a while since my body has produced enough milk to be the sole source of nutrition for a tiny person, and I…

THE MYTHICAL HORNY PREGNANT LADY

If you’ve ever watched a movie or a TV show that involves a pregnant character, then you are likely familiar with the concept of The Horny Pregnant Lady.  She’s large and in charge and she just can’t get enough of ye old D… But outside of the silver screen and the small screen, may I…

HAPPY BUMP LIFE

Mamas: endlessly hard on themselves and needlessly anxious. When I was pregnant, not every day was a walk in the park, but I learned to change my attitude toward this sometimes turbulent moment in life that goes by the name of pregnancy. Ten long months of baking a human bun can be gruelling, tiresome and sometimes really…
