Did your hospital or midwife allow eating during labor? Most of us MomCavers weren’t allowed to eat once we arrived at the hospital. The reasoning behind this (barbaric, in our opinion) practice is that in an emergency, general anesthesia may be used and any food eaten could aspirate into the lungs. While this may be a concern in very rare cases, most laboring moms are doing the most physically demanding work of their lives and could use some sustenance.

Mom Tantrums. Yeah, it’s a thing. In the battlefield of parenthood, do you ever look around and think, “Who made ME the adult around here?” I wanted to lose it just about every day this week. But for the most part, I reigned it in. On several occasions, I had elaborate fantasies of how I’d like to lose it and what I’d do.

There were large ones, small ones, white ones,…

I was on the hunt this weekend for a spinach soup that was hearty but not creamy and not full of noodles or other grain.
