MjAxMi1kYjhmMjViMTE0NTJmZmIx



Cue the red carpet, marching band, and fireworks, y'all, cause today is my birthday! Yippee!  But let's be real here, people -- I'm a mom, and we all know what that means.

You Say It's Your Birthday? Well, It's My Birthday, Too!

It's hard to believe that ten whole years have passed since I was squeezing my legs together like a freaking vice so my twins wouldn't be born on my birthday.  Yep, call me crazy, but I did NOT wanna have to share the same b-day as my kiddos.  I mean, seriously, moms get so few days of recognition as it is!…

Organizing your help following childbirth. Do it early!

Oh what I would give to go back in time and rethink how I would spend those early days with my precious newborn! I can’t, but I can pass on great information that I’ve since learned would have put us on a much better beginning.

It’s kind of funny now how incredibly naive I was when it came to the immense responsibility of around the clock care. We genuinely thought we could handle a baby waking every 2.5 hours to eat, 24 hours a day.

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…

Natural Childbirth Stories

I've very excited to announce that beginning tomorrow, I’m going to begin a weekly post with a positive, natural childbirth story. I’m lining up guest posters who will be sharing their personal stories of how they brought their baby into the world.

The Nefarious History of Motherhood

In the beginning....

Mankind was so awed by the magical ability of the Earth to bring forth life every spring that they made her a god. Most ancient origin myths, even in later, patriarchal societies, began with the Earth giving birth to the other gods.



The Great Goddess nurtured her people, fed them, and… Continue
