Mom to son Jayme, Aimee has been described as a “fertility detective” following her passion to help women live their best and most vital life. This started with her working to help women mentally, physically and emotionally through acupuncture and has grown as she authored three books, and now has her own organic skincare line, Aimee Raupp Beauty. She originally dreamed of being a doctor or scientist before she turned to the study of Chinese medicine, and the rest is history. Over the years, Aimee has helped thousands of women in her clinics, and is now running online forums to provide support to many who need It. Her products are handmade and fly off the shelves, with some favorites including her hand sanitizer, Mag-ese Oil, and Lip Butter! In her spare time, she loves kayaking on the river, her Peloton and swears by Bone Broth! She is kindhearted, creative, and credits her entrepreneurial spirit to her parents, both entrepreneurs before It was “cool” to be one!

How to Work Out at Home During Coronavirus Pandemic from Local Fitness Expert!

How to Work Out at Home During Coronavirus Pandemic from Local Fitness Expert!

Welcome to our new normal. I’m a mom of two young boys in elementary school in Westport, CT, and due to a big outbreak of coronavirus here, we’re pretty much on lockdown. Schools and gyms are closed and restaurants are open for pick up/take out only. So, in addition to being a working mom, I’m now a homeschooler of two kids, a speech and occupational therapist, and a music, art, and Spanish teacher. One thing that’s keeping me sane (at least a little?!) during this unprecedented time is MOVEMENT. I am super grateful that it’s almost spring, and the weather is allowing us to get outdoors and PLAY. Even while social distancing, there are so many ways to keep moving!

The Local Moms Network 2019 Holiday Gift Guide!

The Local Moms Network 2019 Holiday Gift Guide!

Welcome to The Local Moms Network 2019 Holiday Gift Guide! Before kids, we had all our holiday shopping done by (or shortly after) Thanksgiving. Post-kids? We sometimes find ourselves relying on anything available with overnight shipping, or online gift cards (when we’re truly out of ideas). We hope this shortlist provides you with both some solid inspiration and any needed motivation to check all of the dads, moms, kids and everyone in between off your list early, and give unique gifts they’ll love and use over and over.
