Doula’s Guide to Packing a Labor Bag
September 14, 2017 10:00 am | by

You’ve taken your childbirth classes, breastfeeding classes, and newborn care classes. Baby showers are done, and you have all the sweet newborn clothes washed and put away. You are seeing your care provider weekly and your magical due date is inching closer on the calendar. You are feeling ready to welcome your sweet new baby into the world, but… what do you pack in your labor bag?

Taking Photos of Your Newborn – Tips from a Professional Photographer
April 17, 2017 8:00 am | by

During my second pregnancy last year, I did a great deal of dreamy planning. It is easier now than ever to access thousands of ideas to prettily celebrate our pregnancies and births and newborn babies.  I pored over the baby shower boards on Pinterest, the pastel images of perfect cakes and table tutus and gender reveals.  I clicked through black and white galleries of unassisted water births and watched them on YouTube and read All The Things about cord clamping, skin to skin, attachment parenting and midwifery. But I spent more time looking through newborn photos than all the rest

Postpartum Nutrition for Breastfeeding Mothers
January 18, 2017 8:00 am | by

How does postpartum nutrition differ from nutrition for a postpartum breastfeeding mother? Postpartum, the time following childbirth, can range from 6-12 weeks. It is often referred to as the “fourth trimester”. This is a time of healing for mom and bonding with baby and getting breastfeeding established. Due to the changes that pregnancy and childbirth cause to a woman’s body, her nutritional needs change during the postpartum period. It is a time for her body to recuperate. The nutritional focus during this time is focused on foods that promote healing and establishment of breast milk. Foods that promote healing and

 
Bringing the Baby Home With Free Baby Announcement Printable
December 30, 2016 8:00 am | by

Bringing home a new baby from the hospital can feel overwhelming. You have all the right baby stuff, but now you need to figure out the actually-raising-a-baby thing. I feel like I was better prepared than most first-time moms as the oldest of 8 children. I wasn’t new to babies but I was new to this baby. Yet even still I remember when the midwives left thinking to myself, “They left me with this entire human being. Shouldn’t there be a test for this?” Settling into the new routine of parenthood can be a tough transition, I’ve been through it five

Why I Love Babywearing
November 30, 2016 7:25 am | by

Like cloth diapering, I felt that I had discovered the world of babywearing a later into my motherhood. My second child was already 13 months old, but I told myself, “Better late than never!” I’m now on baby #3 and have used carriers with him since he was two days old. I can confidently say – I love babywearing. Here are just a few of the reasons why: Transition from two to three kids. Babywearing helped me tremendously as we transitioned into a family of five. Once the third baby was born, I ran out of free hands! By putting baby in a carrier, my
