Childbirth is this big black hole of unknown to an expecting Mom. You can read books, seek advice from women who have experienced it, and prepare in every way possible. Yet, no one can actually tell you what is going to happen in there. It's a crap shoot.
For me personally, this created some anxiety for me 1st pregnancy. I…Continue

If you consider that babies use an average of 10 diapers a day for the first 5 months and 6 diapers a day for months 6-12, in the first year of his life Oliver will use around 2,912 diapers... I just peed a little bit.

We fight for a fair maternity leave, and a supportive work environment tooth and nail. We do so because we deserve to have a balance between family life and work. If the organizations themselves were aware of the benefits of maternity leave to the organization itself, I think the battle would get much easier. Not only does maternity leave benefit the organization, it also "greatly" benefits the economy. …Continue

I am now 36 weeks pregnant, so I have 4 weeks to go whoo before I have my bundle of joy. For the past couple of week I found myself being emotional, I’m getting irritated really quick, my patience is real short, and crying for what I don’t know lol.
