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?

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…

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…

Celebrating Your Upcoming Birth with Birth Beads



During pregnancy, I go into survival mode. I function in a focused way, with each feeling and action being amplified and less circuitous.



Hungry seems to instantly become starving–EAT!



Thirsty one moment feels dehydrated the next–DRINK!



Tired quickly becomes exhausted–SLEEP!



And those dirty dishes…well, they always reminded me that I was hungry, thirsty and tired–Yes, and…

If you could have a drug-free birth, would you want it?

Are you pregnant and want a natural birth? Then you'll want to read this!



My next New York City Moms blog post is up and running! It’s called Natural Birth, Duggar Style. This article is generate some interesting comments (and heated discussion!).



What do you think, do you feel — like me — that more women could achieve a natural birth if they had educated themselves more about how the hospital is set up to push you into C-sections and believed more strongly in their ability to… Continue

Proud to be a Mummy - or is that infantile?

I read this post today from Bored Mommy who is anything but boring. Someone left a bizarre comment about how being a Mommy (or Mummy) rather than a Parent, is somehow undignified and infantile. It's incredible, really.

Remembering Labor One Year Later...

The other day, a woman at work mentioned that she was terrified to one day find herself in labor. Without skipping a beat, I replied, "Women are so overly dramatic about it. It's not that bad."



Yes, I said that. Really. And at the time, I meant it. As soon as it left my mouth, however, a little voice inside of my head -- the Memory Keeper, perhaps -- laughed.



The first half of my statement I stand by. Hollywood paints labor as a gory, blood-curdling nightmare where women… Continue

I'm so outnumbered

I am now a Mom of 2 Boys!





3 Weeks ago I gave birth to our second son, William. He's already showing his family traits too, started before he came out...because he didn't want to! Stubborn as all the rest of the males in his bloodline...



William was due on December 15th, the day came and went and on the 21st I got a call to come be induced. After a very painful labor (I wanted the epi, but because of car accident, the Dr's were unable to hook me up so I felt… Continue
