40. Heaven is Beneath the Feet of the Mother: Amber’s Stories of Nourishment + Finding the Sacred Feminine in Her Faith
I’m so excited to open up this offering for my vitamin/mineral/probiotic/antioxidant-rich elixir for mothers:
In this episode, Amber shares her experience of healing very painful periods and depletion from many years of a vegetarian diet and pregnancy. Through the simplicity of prioritizing nourishing and ancestral foods, she found her path to vitality. Amber details what eating a nourishing diet looks like for her, and how her womb and overall health has shifted greatly since changing the way she eats.
Amber talks about changing the narrative around loving, attachment parenting to also include letting our village support us. She also speaks to her Muslim faith, some of the misconceptions as she sees it, the elevation of women and mothers within Islam, and the sacred feminine element she centers within her faith.
