This has been one of my favorite issues since I subscribed last year!

My whole family was sick when it arrived, and i was grateful for the "get well" recipes. The ginger tea was a delicious miracle.

Thank You

In "what's kickin" Cesarean rise as VBACs Plummet, it would be interesting to see on the chart the maternal and infant death rates or complication rates along side the Cesarean Birth and VBACs over the years. And see how the Infant and maternal death rates have gone up or down alongside the shift in VBAC and Cesarean rates.

Ditto! I loved the ideas, and especially appreciate that they seem easy, (re)use a lot of materials around the house, and are inexpensive.

I sincerely appreciate the Mayan Womb Massage article. I never realized that I have a prolapsed bladder from ten hours of pushing my almost ten pound son out of my body. This article has helped me so much. Thanks, Mothering, for always printing what I need to read.

Loved the article on the Mayan Womb Massage. I've found a praticioner near by and plan to go for treatments. My daughter was conceived after a very long and emotional year and a half of fertility treatments. I would be overjoyed to conceive without medications and IUI!

I loved the article on Kitchen Medicine Cabinet - just the kind of thing that I love doing - brewing nutritious foods the support out health.

I also enjoyed the Mayan womb massage, and finally understood a possible reason why I would get so constipated with my period (before I gave birth). I had a retroverted womb - I don't know if it still is after giving birth. According to the article, that is common with retroverted wombs.

The article about Mayan fertility massage is the article that speaks loudest to me right now, as we venture into our 9th cycle trying for our first child. I'm finding the time I take to focus on my womb, and helping to prepare a space for this baby really special. I use castor oil externally and massage in the bath, where I am most calm and able to fully relax my abdomen (it isn't easy to at first, having been lead to believe women should hold in our bellies, how sad).

Thank you for this article, I feel in combination with my supplements, and good timing, we have a very great chance at our vegan natural living baby being created!

I LOVED the story of the Boy and his purple bike! Contentment is something even adults do not have enough of! How may adults do you know that have a working car, but constantly want a better one. They can take a lesson from this little man and his family.

Great story, thanks for sharing.

This was my first issue of Mothering and I loved it! We are expecting our first, DP's second, child. I gave him the resources in the 'my son a father' article. My MW just recommended cloth panty liners (which I didn't even know existed) so that article was great! My DSD just turned 11, so Maiden's Moon was also a wonderful read. Last, I just got sick and made myself some ginger tea from the kitchen medicine cabinet article! I know not every issue will be that well timed, but every article was great, Thanks!!

Loved "Maiden Moon." Too often as women we are embarrassed about our periods. It was nice to see how one family embraced and celebrated it.

Wasn't a fan of "Fictional Universes"

I was so touched by Maiden's Moon. It made me long for a daughter so I could teach her to love her body and its processes. My mom was out of the country when I got my first period- and I was on vacation with my dad and brother! I was embarrassed and it took months to finally tell my mom.

(pretty much copied from my blog)
Several articles in Mothering made me really think.

One was about making your daughter's menarche a wonderful rite of passage. It never even occurred to me to celebrate this transition to womanhood, or do anything special at all. I wonder what that could look like. I'll definitely be planning something wonderful when the time comes!

One was about cloth pads. I never really thought about that before, even though we part-time cloth diaper. A woman will produce 300 pounds of menstrual waste in her lifetime. I may have to buy some or make some. Having cloth after I have this baby would be fabulous.

One was about tilted uteri. I was told I had one when I was about 19, and that I might have trouble getting pregnant. That was all. My mom said she was told the same thing, but she never had any trouble at all. We did try for a long time (to us) for our oldest, but didn't have any problems conceiving our other babies.

But not one of my practitioners in my history, ever mentioned any other problems a tilted uterus might cause. These include headaches/migraines, painful periods, chronic constipation, lower back ache among a host of others. Most of these problems I have had have been immensely helped by nutrition, but it would have been nice to know this before now! There is an interesting massage technique that has been shown to help many, many women. I'm going to be contacting someone in my area (1 1/2 hours away though) soon.
