Vaginal Birth vs. C-section

Having a baby can be one of the most amazing feelings ever. It can be scary and intense but with the right support group it can be an amazing experience.



However sometimes things don't go the way you'd like them to go. Complications can happen to both mother and baby and the stress of it all can take away a lot of that joy that you should have as a new parent. …

Going Home

Home is where the heart is.  But, for my daughters, their hearts aren’t just under my roof.

As internationally adopted children, I know a part of them still resides in their birth countries.  As they grow up as red, white, and blue Americans, Elle is still Russian, and Bunny is still…

Scissors and Crayons

Sometimes international adoption can throw a curve ball when you least expect it.

When Elle was in the lower grades of elementary school, she brought home an assignment.  They had been studying the 50 states in school and how the states related to the students.  The worksheet was a map of the United…

Birth Amongst the Goldfish

Added by Crystal on July 5, 2011 at 10:44am — No Comments

She knows who they are.

 

During my pregnancy Hubby would always remind me to have some sweet music on.

He believed to those who say that babies, after their birth, can recognize the music that they have been listening to, when they were living into the belly.

I was skeptical about it.

Actually a…

The date.

It's not like I have an appointment or something.

Or maybe yes, I do.

Last week me and Husband went  to the gynecologist.

She set the date.

For medical reasons I will end up having a c-section.

Which means that we have a day scheduled.

June 16th.

Baby Julia will be born by June 16th.

Spring/summer collection 2011

Now you tell me.

What am I supposed to wear during my last month of pregnancy with the purpose of not looking like a mix between a porn-star (upper part of my body) and a huge egg (down part of my body)?

At the beginning of my pregnancy I was worried to look more fat than pregnant ( I know I did, even though everybody told me I looked gorgeous - all bastards)

So I bought a bunch of large and cute shirts that were very good  at hiding my belly.

Childbirth, Smart and Sexy

“Wait a minute!” you may be thinking. Childbirth is scary with lots of drama and pain! How could it possibly be “smart” and “sexy”?  That’s just crazy, right?

 

Wrong. Let’s look at some facts about a woman’s body that enables her and for most women, to have a baby in the first place.

 

After a woman conceives through the old fashioned way (sex) or by Invetro fertilization (IVF), the embryo implants on the uterine wall and begins to grow. It is totally in the…

Women's Talk Wednesday- Birth Control

Let's admit something right now, ladies. Birth control should be up to us, shouldn't it? We're the ones that will have to carry a child for the next 9 months if the method fails to do it's job. So, I think that means we should be able to choose which one suits us the most, right? Right!



Now, most of my readers are…

Planned Parenthood? ~www.TheBloggingMom.com~

Yesterday I was at Madison's basketball game just like I have been every weekend for the last umpteen years. Everything is so nice... enjoying the game... winning...all is good. Problem is, lately I can't actually watch the game because Hudson gets so much attention. Everyone that passes by tends to say something. Of course I don't mind. Most any stay-at-home mom will tell you they love any adult conversation, so this is a good excuse for some small… Continue

My Very Special Frist Center Adventure

In May, I contacted Emily Harper Beard at the Frist Center to plan my summer of “Genma’s Frist Center Adventures”. I started my conversation with an enthusiastic, “Hey, you need me, and here’s what I need you to do!” I rattled off a list of upcoming events that I wanted to host at the museum because I wanted to make sure it was the Frist Center’s “best year yet.” Never mind the crazy phone introduction, we would work through all of that later, I thought to myself. After what seemed an eternity… Continue

Birth Story -Alexander

It all started on a Monday. The date, May 19th, 2008. I was still asleep. The time was 3 am or something close to it. I woke up. I really did not know why but I thought "Huh, that was weird". An hour later I

woke up again this time wondering if it had all started.

Being a first time mommy back then I was a little scared. It wasn't until we got out of bed that I realized labor had started. We took a shower and, since we used to live 4 blocks from his former job, we went

5 Ways to Prepare for Natural Birth

When I became pregnant for the second time, it took visiting my local doctor once for me to decide that home birth was a must for me. And although I’d considered home birth on occasion, when I finally settled into that route for my birth, it became a life-changing endeavor for my husband and I.





Birth can be empowering. Transformative. And such a positive experience. Natural birth. Home birth. It can be all of these things and more. So, for whichever route you choose…
