I am all about breastfeeding. My first child I breastfed for a year. My second I only did it for about a month. (I really regret that but I suffered from post partum depression and never even wanted to get out of bed, let alone feed my baby. Thank God for my husband and mother in law!) My third I was able to nurse for about 17 months. I finally gave up because I was pregnant with my fourth, and well, just exhausted from everything.
So now I am proudly breastfeeding my fourth, going… Continue

As a vocal breastfeeding advocate, a sex educator and a supporter of survivors of sexual abuse during their childbearing year I have ask myself many times about the validity of “pushing” bf’ing. Yes, breastmilk is best, but if we guilt woman into breastfeeding aren’t we hurting the cause?
And what do I mean by cause? Is it a cause? If we stopped pushing Breast Is Best as if it was a winning hearts and minds military campaign… Continue

I used to believe that breast is always best. I gave the stink eye to bottlefeeding moms, I towed the Breast is Best partyline.
I was wrong.
I passionately believe that breastmilk is the optimal food for your baby. That part is based on science and economics, not opinion. But is feeding your babe at the breast really best for every woman?
For me, as a sexual abuse survivor, breastfeeding was amazingly therapeutic. Breastfeeding my sons transformed my relationship with my… Continue

So Wednesday the north country of AZ was hit hard by severe thunderstorms and 27 tornado warnings. Four that touched down where I live, and one that was just 6 miles from my house heading right for us. One tornado knocked a freight train off the tracks and picked up and moved diesels off the road! It made national headlines here
. So glad we were spared!...… Continue

I have a dilemma. I want to get a tattoo. The perfect little Fleur de Lis on my ankle, but I am getting mixed support from my
family, and I can’t quite make up my mind.
See, I already have a tattoo…three to be exact, but I don’t count my tattooed nipples because that’s more reconstructive than self-expression. My tattoo is a Continue

•It is cheaper than formula
•You give your child the antibodies they need
•It is the perfect food for your child
•It helps you lose the baby weight
You see … nothing but great things to say. Of course my sister in law holds the record … between her two children she has been nursing for 5 years… Continue

Cupcakes are yummy, right? Just thinking about them makes my mouth water. That sugary sweet cake-y goodness that seems to melt in your mouth.
Well, what would you say if I handed you a cupcake and told you it was made with breast milk. Would you eat it then?
Ok, I'm a mom. I tried the breastfeeding thing for a whole, oh, two weeks. Yeah, it didn't last long. Even though it didn't pan out for this momma, I still highly admire those who do nurse. And who do it for a long… Continue

My grandmother was a breast cancer survivor. She had a mastectomy at a time when I was too young to even understand what that meant. I am now 38 and acutely aware of what it means as we honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My grandmother outlived her cancer, dying of natural causes, and I know many of you who are taking care of your elders or dear friends are praying for the same outcome.
Not too long ago I was introduced to a few remarkable women who created the TNBC foundation in… Continue

Most of us are all aware that we should get an annual mammogram on top of doing our own monthly self examinations. Do we all do it? Of course not, there are times when us moms forget where we left our head at because we all have so much on our plate as is.

Women are notorious for being able to bond in almost any circumstance - my husband is constantly amazed at the conversations I strike up with other women in check-out lines, airports, doctors' offices, any place where having to wait in one place creates an opportunity for temporary kinship, and we can talk about children, trying to lose weight, the cute earrings someone has on, or any number of subjects (whereas men seem limited to 'how about those Lakers!'). So it didn't surprise me when I… Continue
