As a mom, celebrity birth coach and certified yoga teacher, Latham Thomas has a lot on her plate. The founder of Mama Glow, a holistic lifestyle company focusing on guiding women through pregnancy, is now adding author to her list of titles as she released her first book, Mama Glow: A Hip Guide to Your Fabulous Abundant Pregnancy, earlier this week.
After her own successful and smooth pregnancy, Thomas was inspired to create a platform to educate, inform and inspire women during and post pregnancy. She attributes her personal success to her “diet, lifestyle and way of being.” The book, which features exercises, fertility boosting and recipes, speaks on making time for yourself, eating right, and surrounding yourself with people who add value to your life.
“You have to take care of the space [you inhabit] in your life. It’s an important process of becoming a mother “” establishing your “˜Queen-dom,’ Thomas says. “Look through your phone list. Who fortifies you? Who tires you? Who inspires you? Even if it’s a friend from when you are five “” if you don’t like who you are with this person, why are you forcing this [if there's] no way to authentically connect? We have to watch what’s in our space “” when we toss out the negative it makes us more available for our blessings.”
