Although most pregnant women anticipate a normal, uncomplicated delivery, there are exceptions to the rules. A shoulder dystocia is one of the more frequent complications in the delivery room and unfortunately there is no sure-fire way to predict it.
A shoulder dystocia means that extra maneuvers must be done to deliver the baby’s shoulders. If not managed properly, the baby could sustain permanent injuries to its neck and arms. The most… Continue

I was reading San Diego Momma's blog this morning and her post really resonated with me and got me thinking. (Thank you, Deb for inspiring my post today).
Deb's blog was about boundaries and not being able to set them. Not being able to say no. She also wrote about the inability to stand up for herself when a man had gone too far. This is the part that… Continue

Christian lady has the freedom to "write her… Continue

Greetings from Leesburg, Georgia. I am new to this interesting world of blogging and am looking to network with moms who might share common interests.

The word "friend" has been so tainted by frenemies, rotating BFF's and being able to defriend with a click of a mouse that we now need a new term for our closest friends and allies: wives. A Band of Wives is a website for women who are interested in women's issues, proactive, supportive and generally down with making their friendships a priority. www.abandofwives.ning.com

I’ve been thinking how bizarre it is to be one of those people who uses a leaf blower. I never thought I would be the leaf blower type, especially not the type to use one indoors. When we moved to the burbs in 1999, there were two people in my audible surroundings with a leaf blower. I imagine they happened to be in the home and garden section of one of the big box stores on the very first day leaf blowers went retail. They just had to have one, the way Homer Simpson has to have a doughnut:… Continue

I won’t say the name of this organization because then I can speak more freely, but there was a meeting last night that my son and husband attended. It was a meeting for kids. Boys only, to be specific. While I say this with complete and utter respect, compassion and understanding, women and girls have no place at these meetings. Trust me. [more HERE]

My grandmother was a breast cancer survivor. She had a mastectomy at a time when I was too young to even understand what that meant. I am now 38 and acutely aware of what it means as we honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My grandmother outlived her cancer, dying of natural causes, and I know many of you who are taking care of your elders or dear friends are praying for the same outcome.
Not too long ago I was introduced to a few remarkable women who created the TNBC foundation in… Continue

I like to believe that at Mom Fuse are all about helping moms, usually we post topics and articles on different parenting related issues but this post is more special and dear to me than any post I’ve ever done.
Recently a good friend of ours was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer and their family is in desperate need of some financial assistance. She was employed as a nurse and brought in most of the money but she’s recently had to quit her job because of the cancer. Now that… Continue

I love to entertain. There's something about creating an atmosphere where people feel comfortable, enjoy good food and good conversation, and can relax that really gets me. Playing hostess is fun, and being a good (nee exceptional) and attentive hostess is important to me. I thought that if I was ever give the opportunity to have my dream business, it would be in party planning. Well, after the stress of this week, now I'm not so sure.

Author Kelly Corrigan wrote this moving essay about women's remarkable capacity to support each other, to laugh together, and to endure. This actually brought me to tears and makes me feel so proud of my gender. I also feel sorry for the men in our lives because they miss out on so much by not having this kind of support system. If you haven't seen this before please take the time to watch it now. Women are truly special and I raised 3 great ones, this is for them. I only wish I had written it.… Continue
