We’re teaming up with the Team Homan curling team this year: three-time Canadian national champions, world champions and 2018 Olympians, Lisa Weagle (lead), Joanne Courtney (second), Emma Miskew (third) and Rachel Homan (skip) .

This is a special year for Team Homan as both Rachel and Joanne embark on their greatest challenge to date – they are both welcoming their first child in summer 2019!

We will be documenting their journey in a 3-part video series so that you can follow along right here.

Part 1: Getting Ready for Baby (LIVE NOW)

Part 2: The Big Reveal: Babies & Mom’s Unite (September 2019)

Part 3: Baby at the Table: The introduction of first foods. What’s on the menu? (January 2020)

PART ONE: Getting Ready for Baby: Both Rachel and Joanne are busy planning ahead for their big event by making two nourishing, freeze-ahead meal builders: a marinated steak recipe & big-batch scoopable seasoned cooked ground beef. The BIG SURPRISE? Rachel went into labour 2 days before the video shoot, so it’s up to Joanne to get into the kitchen solo to lend a hand. Watch Joanne in action (videos below). Get the Big Batch Beef recipe (below).

Planning Ahead:

Joanne talks about getting ready for Baby, and how she had to ‘squeeze in’ a baby in the off season. That’s the importance of planning ahead!
