Friends, I'm so excited to share this feature on a very special mama who quickly became one of my best friends and a part of my little mom squad back in Edmonton.
Leah is one of the kindest and most inspiring mom entrepreneurs that I know, she left her nursing career to follow her heart to start her Aura Leaf Co business.
Aura Leaf was created by Leah Holmes when her daughter Aura was just an infant. Leah was a newborn to preschool age, postpartum, and healthy young families registered nurse for 5 years before she made the biggest leap of faith and left her career for her passion: creating slings that were not only practical, but that were a reflection of today's parents' personalities.
She saw a need in the market for slings that were pre softened so that parents could sling comfortably right away and injected her own heart, soul, and personality into what Aura Leaf has grown to be today.
Meet Leah Holmes, her friends call her Lay.

Where can people find your services/projects?
What are you excited about right now?
The Aura Leaf Holiday 2018 Collection! Coming mid December. The most dreamy collection to date! Think: nature, glam, and radiance all in one. I included a sneak peek photo below.
What inspired you to start your business?
The arrival of my daughter Aura and then the women who came into my life shortly after and continue to inspire me to this day! Like MyMy and your magical family
Whats your major challenge right now and what are you doing to overcome it?
Being in my third trimester of pregnancy. My mind and spirit are feeling energetic and creative but my body is not responding quite as fast lol!
I'm sleeping to overcome it!
What's one daily ritual you are practising right now?
Taking time with Aura every morning to giggle and cuddle. Then we get ready for our day and she is wanting to do every step by herself. It takes a long time but everyday is different and I can tell if I give her this slow time in the morning her day (and mine) is so much better! I am
Also, Kundalini Gown is a staple around here. The only clothing that makes me feel radiant no matter what stage I am during pregnancy and postpartum
How can the community support you right now?
Spread the word about Aura Leaf to a mama in your life (:
If you have a new mom or new parents coming into your life do let them know about our slings.
What is your dharma in 2 words.
Spreading Love- there is so much always going on in the world that can get us down. But I choose to focus on giving others permission to be themselves, love on themselves and those around them. Tell someone you see them and accept them as they are and that you can also see any great ambition they have for themselves. We are more powerful then we think by simply loving others (:
Anything else you would like to share with our audience?
I am just honoured to be featured by my sweet friends who I love and admire so much.
Love love love you all.
