That said, I am very glad Mothering published the article, it deserved to be shared, and I am blessed to have read it. The above is just a totally selfish, "wow the timing on that sucks for me" comment, that's all. It was beautiful and painful and amazing and made me cry and I am very grateful Mothering published it, and grateful to the author for writing it.
This issue came out the same day my subscription renewal bill came...I was not going to renew because I couldn't bear to continue to read Mothering knowing that I had read and studied every issue during my pregnancy with Ryland--the pregnancy 2005 issue was in my mailbox around the time we lost Ry. But now, I will continue to subscribe, purely because of the fact that those of us who were not fortunate to be able to keep our children on earth are still recognized as mothers...
Thank you for your understanding.

I wanted to remark how imperative the mastitis article was for me. Firstly, I had no idea that mastitis could be hereditary, makes total sense. And since I get it each time with my newborns I love the kit to keep on hand 24 hours into the symptoms to prevent antibiotic use. My personal situation I have never resorted to antibiotics because I am a glouten for immense pain but the herbal suggestions will be bought and ready for when the new baby comes in August!
i'm not sure that i'd ever be able to go on after such a tradgedy.
Last of all, pregnant women are paranoid enough about any and everything going wrong so I can only imagine that reading an article like this is the last thing many of them need to add to their stress.
I also wish i'd had the article on Mastitis while both my girls were newborns. I fought mastitis the 1st four months of my breastfeeding relationship with my 1st daughter. EVERYONE told me to give up, and yet i fought through it. Then i got it again with my second child and blamed it on overproduction of milk. Now should we ever have another baby, I fully intend on implementing many of the tips from this article!
I also loved the Clean Green: Make your house spic and span without chemicals, article. I have been extremely worried about the effects of household cleaners and now have alternatives. Thank you MDC, as always a job well done!
Charlotte's story was powerful because of its truth and its hope. I sobbed hard into my pillow until my kids asked what's wrong. But her ability to speak forcefully about her fierce love for her daughter and the wisdom and abudance of her mothering in the aftermath of loss was a gift to me and many readers.
I think for the moms that have endure the horrible loss of a child feel very validated.
I did remove a few posts for quoting, PM me if you have any questions.
In addition to validating those of us who have endured the loss of our children, this article will hopefully provide a roadmap for the many women who will surely have to do so in the future. Death is a sure part of life. Although it might be painful for some to read about, G-d forbid they or someone they know has to birth a child who has died- they may find comfort and strength from this article.
Oh, and the painting by Durga Berhnard, isn't that the one she painted after talking with Berkeley after she lost her daughter, Julianna? It's beautiful.
I know not all children will find what is safe for them without taking a few falls, but as an american parent, I am costantly bombarded with "that is not safe" when in reality it may be safe but not comfortable.
Thanks for sharing this article!!

I did enjoy the article on cosleeping. This is something my family has enjoyed very much with our first. I felt it was uplifting and inspiring and was something I could feel comfortable sharing with someone unfamiliar w/ Mothering Mag.
I also loved the recess article -- I think Christine Gross-Loh always hits her articles out of the park.

I've always appreciated the footnotes/research that Mothering offers at the end of their articles to back up their stories. The recess article was well-researched & interesting.
As usual, I enjoy Peggy's editorials. She balances a softness of a mother as well as a toughness as a child's advocate.
Though I didn't vote for it, I appreciate the recipes especially when you include vegetarian/vegan recipes! (Didn't vote for the recipes this time as the recipes looked pretty standard...nothing inspiring this time
The invisible fences article was thought-provoking. The BEST part of it was the last paragraph (cute twist).
Was disappointed with the Green cleaning article. Very basic info. Very surface article (no pun intended). Thought it could have gone into more detail. I'm glad you have articles like this in your magazine as it's so important to keep our children safe from nasty chemicals; I just wished it could have been researched/written like the recess article was.
