7 Ways Cloth Diapering Changed My Life

Without being dramatic I can absolutely say with confidence that cloth diapering changed my life!  That one decision I made while pregnant over 5 years ago has paid dividends for my family and not just because we saved a few thousand dollars over the course of diapering two children.  You’ll be surprised at how drastically […]

Interview with a Homebirth Dad

My husband was a tough nut to crack when it came to homebirth. Once I knew I wanted to have our second son at home and I grew the balls to tell him- it wasn’t pretty. After weeks of discussion he hesitantly agreed to meet with a midwife, if only to shut me up. The […]

Mother’s Day as a Mom of Two

Even though today is just another day, it also has the title of Mother’s Day.  I’m not complaining!  This is the one day of year, other than my birthday, that I get special treatment.  I am guaranteed the option of sleeping in, I get gifts, and my husband is a little extra helpful around the […]

Who I am and Where I am Coming From

I am not a “controversial” blogger. In fact, when writing out my posts I am constantly asking myself “Will this offend someone?  Can this be taken the wrong way?” And so on.  Yet, just the topics I write about are controversial in themselves so I do get the upset mother commenting every once in a […]

What my overdue baby taught me about my induction

Because everyone I know online is pregnant I have been hearing a lot about their labors.  Some were hospital births, some were at home, and many were even VBACs.  Luckily, most of my friends are pretty informed about pregnancy, labor, and delivery.  This meant that most of them waited for the baby to come when […]

A few weeks ago I was in downright denial that I would be bringing another human being into this world.  Perhaps because he delayed his arrival for so long that I didn’t feel it was ever going to happen.  Or maybe because my pregnancy was so easy I often forgot I was, even at 30+ […]

My Homebirth Video

When my sons took a 3.5 hour nap I managed to edit a video compiling the photos from my homebirth.  There are no graphic images, in case you wondering.

41.5 Weeks of Pregnancy, Week by Week

This pregnancy I decided to take more belly pictures since I took virtually none the first time around.  I managed to remember almost every single week unless we were out of town. The first photo I took I had my hair towel in, and was in underwear.  That sort of became the trend to keep it […]

Everett’s Homebirth Story

Everett made his way into the world on October 20, 2010 at 6:44 am.  This is how it went down. At around 1:30 in the morning my son, Fletcher, who is 23 months old, was yelling for “Mama” from his bed.  I went in to give him a cuddle and get him back to sleep. […]

Want to follow my Homebirth?

After some thought I did decide that I will be live tweeting my homebirth! Due to the unpredictable nature of labor I don’t know when/ how often I will update.  I have told my husband what I want done and he will take over updates once I get to a point where I would rather […]
