Latham Thomas is one of those women who wows everyone she meets: effervescent, positive, powerful and gorgeous. She’s someone we’ve been connected with through Mama Glow, a support system and service provider for expectant and new mommies, providing everything from nutritional counseling to yoga and birth coaching. It’s run by a beautiful group of women, and we are constantly inspired by their emphasis on the inner beauty and power within each woman that thrives during pregnancy!
Now, on to Latham. Latham founded Mama Glow. She’s a wellness and birth coach, yoga teacher, and overall maternity lifestyle maven and guru. Here, she answers a few questions for us as we celebrate Mother’s Day.
What’s a moment from motherhood you’ll never forget?
I will never forget the moment I looked into my son’s eyes for the first time. Carrying him for 41 weeks then having a blissful natural birth under the pull of the full-moon was magical and he has touched my life ever since.
What keeps you feeling beautiful? (Interpret this any way you like!)
I believe beauty is about tapping into and expressing the most authentic form of yourself and sharing that with the world. When I am doing what I love- helping women along their birth journey- I feel beautiful. I feel most beautiful when I take care of myself too- when I take time to soak in a warm bath, adorn myself with oils, lather myself with creams, slow down. Moments of intimacy make me glow 🙂 It’s my glow time routine that keeps me feeling radiant. Soulful acts of self care.
How do you treat yourself?
I treat myself to bubble baths, massages, mini-vacations where I check in to a hotel for the night to just be pampered. My son and I love jumping on the bed and pillow fights!
What’s your favorite Tata Harper product and why?
Wow this is a tough one because I love them all- but if I am left to choose… I would say the Regenerating Cleanser- It feels so good when I wash my face and looks completely glowing when I am done. It smells amazing too.
What’s your favorite way to disconnect and spend time with your family?
I love to just lounge with my son and read books and play board games. We also love a good game of frisbee along the beach.
Can you share a discovery that has led to finding more balance in your life?
I have learned to set healthy boundaries- saying “yes” only to what I want to do and what feels good and “NO” to everything else. I can better harness my energy that way and I don’t get bogged down doing things that are off mission for me. I learned that I have lots of creative and vibrant energy in the morning- so I design my day so I can make good use of that before the afternoontime.
The best piece of advice you ever received?… And the worst?
“Sometimes when things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place”
and “Don’t miss the moment” Both of these really mean to me that we must relinquish our control and allow the grace of the universe to bless us and order our steps. Look up and smell those gorgeous blooms blowing in the wind, because when you blink they are gone. Enjoy life and its gifts.
I don’t have any bad advice to report 🙂
