We recently spent a lovely afternoon celebrating the launch of Little Honey Money, a new kind of registry platform that gives new mothers what they really need: support, healing and nourishment.
Consumer culture has tricked us into thinking that gadgets and gizmos (that often end up in landfills soon after purchase) are what’s needed to prepare for motherhood. We all know that’s not the truth! It’s about time a registry came along to shake things up and give families the support they need and I’m thrilled to be a tiny part of this big vision.
Our gathering brought together a beautiful group of birth workers of varying expertise to not only learn more about Little Honey Money, but also have the opportunity to experience the type of services that can be gifted to mothers through Little Honey Money; such as sound bathing, massage, ear seeding, and more. Here's a look inside the party:
Sound Bath by La Mer
During a sound bath, singing bowls, gongs, bells, chimes, voice, and other musical instruments nurture us with powerful, positive vibrations. Harmonic resonance has a profound effect on the cells, organs, tissues, as well as the circulatory, metabolic and endocrine systems. Sound bathing vitalizes these systems with sound's medicinal nutrients.
Moon phase, season, time of day, direct surroundings and group energy inspire the composition of this deeply meditative communion with rhythm and resonance as we welcome the amazing power of sound to transform, heal and inspire.
Cranial Sacral Therapy by Dana Penenberg
Craniosacral, somatic healing sessions are a powerful aid pre-conception, prenatally, and postpartum for both mom and baby. Dana guides the release of held imprinting in the subconscious, tissues, and nervous system so that mom is aligned in herself, therefore fully present to her baby. This sets her up for a more attuned birth experience. She also incorporates Craniosacral for newborns in her birth packages to assist in unwinding any trauma or tension from the events at birth. Mom and baby are so intimately and energetically connected in a dyadic relationship that when a release happens in mom, you can see the baby totally settle and let go as well.
Foot Scrubs and Massages by Barbara Warner Beauty
A gentle exfoliating scrub with the Malibu Made Body Scrub followed by a moisturizing massage with the Malibu Made Glow Oil was another highlight of the day that left us with glowing, baby soft skin. During the postpartum period, a warm oiling of the body daily helps to ground the nervous system, support recovery, and clear energy. This treatment is often offered by Postpartum Doulas.
Ear Seeding by Spirit Gate
Ear Seeding acupressure is a form of acupuncture used to stimulate the flow of Qi energy in the body. It can help relieve chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, stress, migraines; and help with infertility, addiction and weight loss.

Packed with healthy nutrients like Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin B-12 and selenium, caviar is incredible for your skin, hair, heart, brain and immune system. OneSun Granola and fresh picked biodynamic fruits and veggies from the OneSun Farm were served by incredible chef Dianna Greenwald Prager of The Clean Palette. As for beverages, Kin Euphorics and The Fullest Saffron Lattes kept us feeling blissed out.
