My mother suddenly passed away four years ago and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and miss her dearly. Losing my mother, even though I was in my 40′s, felt like I was being abandoned. I felt a sense of loss that was so paralyzing. I was left unable to take care of myself or make a single decision on my own. I could not fathom that she was actually gone. I would often pick up the phone on Sunday to call her, since that was our standing phone date after my father passed… Continue

Home is where the heart is. Sometimes it gets a bit stuffy though. Every once in a while it seems the air in the house is stagnant and not very fresh. No wonder with all the chemicals we get from the fabrics, paint and furniture that is in our houses. With spring here it is time to freshen the air in your healthy home.

It's frustrating being sick. If you can't sleep but have to rest what do you do? For the first few hours it may be fun but after that it is just boring. How do we keep the mind busy while the body rests?
For a lucky few this isn't a problem. They are able to sleep and heal. Sleep is a struggle for many of the rest of us though and those hours in bed or on the couch get very long.
Whether you are a child or an adult there are lots of options though. Some you may not be… Continue

Want to start exercising but feel you don’t have the time? Are you overwhelmed with work, family, cleaning, errands and other commitments? Taking care of a family and running a household is very demanding, whether you work outside the home or not. There is so much going on that we run out of time before we can fit in exercise.
The first thing to do is determine where you are spending all your time. Keep a time log for a few days to a… Continue

I just finished reading a beautifully written book that I received as part of a blog book review tour from Feminist Press. Did you know that some younger women do not like to be called feminists? What is up with that? But I digress.

My friend left work today, excited because she was heading straight to her new gym. For a few minutes I was envious. She would, after all, get to work out without small companions who make comments like, "Look, mom, I can stretch, too! I can stretch more than you!!" and "Wow, mom! Look how much the Wii says you weigh!!"
But then I looked outside and saw it was snowing. Again. My motivation left as quickly as it had arrived. Don't get me wrong. I want to be fit. I want sculpted arms… Continue

I had a nightmare Saturday night - jumbled, disjointed, frightening scenes. It started with our family going to a store's grand opening. It ended with me being trapped inside, watching a plane crash-land in the parking lot and skid into the building as panic and chaos erupted all around me.
I couldn't find my husband; I couldn't find my children.
In the dream, I think I was in a Wal-mart, but I might as well have been in a Safeway, because I'm sure the murderous rampage in… Continue

the day she was born (December 9th, 2009) up until now. I worked my ass
off on it. Did you know that she's been alive for three years even
though she's only just turned one? This was the super nerdy fact my
husband presented to me this morning.
Right before I informed him that I had saved our marriage.
Let me explain.

So I had a little meltdown at work today. You know, holiday stress, last-minute assignments, all that fun stuff. And so I snuck out of my cubicle kingdom for a minute to go take a few deep breaths.
I went to the ladies room. Not a good choice for a variety of reasons, but my options were limited. I locked the door of the stall and just stood there, trying to organize my thoughts and tell myself that yes, I could get everything done, and no, I wouldn't have a nervous… Continue

I hate complaining about something and not offering any solutions. And while my solutions often fall somewhere between “just hold hands and love each other” and “smite them all”, I often come up with something that works.
So, with that in mind, here are my thoughts on creating a positive, empowering and mother & baby friendly breastfeeding environment. I focus on my local hospital, the IWK, and my province but the information I provide can be used by…
