Latham Thomas is a wellness guru and doula, and she’s been helping women thrive during childbirth and motherhood for a long time.
She’s the creator of MamaGlow.com, the author of Mama Glow, a guide to healthy pregnancy, and has guided people like Alicia Keys (you know, NBD) through the process of becoming a mother (you know, super simple stuff).
But her new book, Own Your Glow, takes her message of wellness, creativity, and spiritual expression to all women attempting to live their best lives, regardless of whether there’s a baby involved. “We have the ability to take what life has handed us and transform it into something new, something greater than even we could imagine,” Thomas says. “That innate creative force within all women—cosmic-creation vibration, that potent instinctual energy that awakens within us, plus fierce femininity—that is what I call glow power.”
How does she keep her glow power going strong on a daily basis? We asked Thomas to share how she lives her most nutritious life. Follow her lead to get one step closer to owning your own glow.
