Tools + Resources

I’m Sharita — mom, wife, doula and educator. I believe that the tools and strategies to thrive as a parent shouldn’t be a secret. So, I’m pulling back the curtain of all things pregnancy, postpartum and parenthood.

Do you ever wonder “what tools could I use to better manage my time, health, life, business and family?” Well here’s a comprehensive list of many of the tools I use to manage my life – from home to business. I’ve got you.

I’m offering you FREE tips, tools and strategies to thrive in your pregnancy, postpartum and parenting goals.

Some I have created myself but here’s a quick note. I’m an affiliate of some of the companies listed on this page, which means I receive a commission whenever someone makes a purchase using my code or link. This doesn’t cost you anything extra; actually it often means you’ll save money – so win win! As an affiliate, I’m able to snag some sweet discounts. I wholeheartedly endorse these brands. And I only recommend products and services that I use in my real life and straight up LOVE. Enjoy!

This information is occasionally updated so be sure to return for the latest resources.

That all sounds amazing!
