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

Birthing at a birth center

Do you want a positive and natural birth in a supportive environment? Are you afraid that a hospital will lead you down a slippery slope of unnecessary medical interventions, but don’t want to give birth at home?

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

for a…

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…

Highway Robbery...I Mean Health Insurance

Just got off the phone with my health insurance provider. Trying to get them to pay *their share* of the homebirth. You know, the one I discussed with them a year ago. The one they agreed to pay 80% of. Well,

let’s just say I’m having trouble calling them a “provider.” They cut a check for less than 40% of the homebirth.

Can you imagine if your partner “provided” for you like insurance companies manage to?

You give a whole lot of what you have to…

How to Plan an Environmentally-Friendly, Green Homebirth

When I had my first homebirth, I lucked out. I found a midwife who quickly became my dream-come-true. (In case you’re planning a homebirth in California’s Bay Area, Judy Luce rocks!) At the time, she’d been a midwife for 30 years, knowledgeable, experienced, and holding high ethics. And she really helped transform my pregnancy into a time of self-awareness, and my birth into an empowering experience.

As we arrived…
