  1. Birth Stories
    I am a Post-Partum Doula and Birth Circle host, in Northern Virginia, and am on a quest to collect Birth Stories! I am featuring birth stories on my blog, RADIANT BIRTH, of all kinds - hospital, home, water, c-section, unassisted, medicated. I believe that every story is important and should be...
  2. C-section Birth
    <p>12 weeks ago I had a(nother) emergency cesarean.  My recovery up until now has been fine.  No major issues till the past few days.  I've noticed on and off burning in my stomach.  Once it woke me up.  Then the gurgling noises as if I'm about to have diarrea but nothing.  Then the horribly...
  3. Life With a Baby
    We're all going to baby showers and visiting new moms and their little ones. You're the ones most recently realizing what gifts were useful, what weren't so useful, and what you wish someone had gotten you.

  6. I'm Pregnant
    <p>My parents had these plane tickets that they ended up not using, and the expiration of the tickets was a week after my due date, so they decided to both come then, to see the baby. I actually told them I wanted them here not until 2 weeks after the baby was born. My logic was that in the...
  7. Parenting Multiples
    <p>My twins are due in less than two weeks. I'm really concerned, actually terrified- about how I will handle those first few weeks. Mostly because I will have no help other than DH for a week and will also be recovering from a C-section. Both babies are still breech despite an exhaustive...
  8. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    <p>Hi,</p> <p> </p> <p>My DS is 18 mos and still breastfeeding during the day (sleeps through the night).  I still haven't had my first period postpartum and tonight I started having really sharp pains in my abdomen.  In all my years prior to conception I had light periods (or no periods) and...
