Story of My Final Pregnancy - My Birth Story

I was super excited and nervous when I found out that I was expecting in September of 2010.  Just a few weeks before I found out, I was watching my mother struggle with her battle with Pick’s disease.  Pick’s disease is a rare form of Alzheimer’s that affects the frontal lobe of the brain.  In August of 2010, she was in the final stages and was admitted to the ICU with severe case of pneumonia.  My dad was out of town, so I spent the last few days with her at her bed side along with my…

Sally is a stay at home mom to her newborn infant. She planned on exclusively breastfeeding her baby; however, one day Jacob decided to skip a feeding.

Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie Recipe

I'm not a breakfast person. I generally hate eggs, and usually anything I eat early in the morning disagrees with my tummy. I have found, though, that smoothies work well for me in the morning. Really anytime. Plus they are quick and convenient and give me the energy I need to get from one task to the next. I wanted to share with you my Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie recipe made with almond milk, instead of dairy milk, which is much easier on me. At 294 calories (calculated with…

The Big Weanie

I gave myself a deadline, if you will, for weaning Aidan from breastfeeding.  I did this because I am a planner and I like to do things in a well thought out and calculated manner.  Giving myself the deadline of Memorial Day Weekend planted a seed in my mind that said in March and April I needed to pump pump pump and freeze as much breast milk as possible so that he could still have breast milk, just not from the “tap.”  Then, in May, I’d start replacing one breastfeeding with a bottle in a…

Makin' News Monday: Breastmilk Icecream is Dangerous??



It can be creamy, comforting, and even sinful (if eaten by the gallon) but I must admit, the word 'breast' never pops into my mind when thinking of ice cream.

When will the boob sucking end?!!

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

Creating a Positive, Empowering & Mother-Friendly Breastfeeding Community

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…

More Thoughts on Breast is Best: Guilt-led breastfeeding





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…

The Breast is Best Campaign in Nova Scotia- Is It Working?

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…
