  • Pregnancy Hack #2: Prep Your Uterus with this Fruit

    Dates are definitely not the most consumed of all fruits on the market, but what they lack in popularity, they make up for in benefits towards pregnancy and birth! I've heard rumors about how eating dates throughout the end of a pregnancy can speed labor up and make it all an easier process, but I needed a bit more than rumors before I started chomping them down 3 at a time!

  • Newborn Splurges that are Worth the Money

    There is no better time than now to be spoiled, spoil yourself, and spoil your tiny little blessing about to enter the world! The price tags on products today can send the head spinning.

That is still ‘rock-you-to-sleep’ and ‘wear-you-in-a-carrier’ kind of baby level. Continue reading

It becomes overwhelming, and turning to friends seems like the best idea.  But how do you know if your parenting ideals are the same? How do you know if they read the best books out there? You don't, and you don't need to stress over it. Yes, there are a million books out there, but your parenting won't be defined by every one that you pick up! Well, I take that back. The books you read will open your eyes (and heart) to help you realize what type of parent you will strive to be! Continue reading

  • Best Relief for Back Pain in Labor

    Pregnancy, labor and birth have a funny way of throwing you for a loop just when you think you've figured it all out. This is especially true when it comes to labor!  Everything you read talks about the wave of contractions, the progression, the transition, and the birth. And yes, that is a pretty typical labor.
