  1. Pregnancy & Birth
    Pregnancy and childbirth bring a lot of changes to a mother's life. This goes without saying. Your body changes. Your family increases by one. Your brain changes. Your heart changes. I found, that with these changes, something else happened: people felt like they could comment on my body. I...

    We hear it all the time. "Love your body. Appreciate it. The scars and stretch marks are beautiful." The problem is: That's not beautiful to me. When I look at myself in the mirror, I think back to my days in college. I was eating Oreos every day along with dining hall food without a care in...

    "A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform." This quote by Diane Mariechild is one of my favorites.
