She creates such an amazing experience for you to spend time with your little one as you are anxiously waiting your new baby's arrival.
Candice is a wonderfully skilled massage therapist who specializes in prenatal and postnatal massages. She is amazing for expecting and new Mama's because she (like me) comes to the comfort of your own home. There is nothing like getting pampered and spoiled, especially without having to leave the house. Not that you ever need an excuse, but prenatal massages have been known the help with circulation, reduce swelling and lower blood pressure. And of course, especially massages in your own home where you might be able to stumble off to bed are great for helping get some much needed rest! You will not be disappointed!
Finally! A gluten free, dairy free, soy free and nut free healthy snack for a nursing Mama who has no time to spend whipping up a batch of fresh healthy cookies in the kitchen!

Not only are they delicious but they are made FRESH and local here in Charlotte then hand delivered right to your door! Made with love from one Mama to another.
These local maternity & baby boutiques are AMAZING! The experience there is unlike any department store you might go shopping in.
