My 4-Day Birth Story

Being Mama/ Home Page/ Pregnancy

Like a lot of moms-to-be, I had a lot of expectations for my third birth. As a trained doula, I knew quite well that the only thing you can expect in birth is the unexpected, but I still put a lot of stock in the hope that this birth would give me closure to heal the trauma from previous experiences. I had to, it was my last pregnancy. Of course, nothing went as planned — in fact, a lot of things were quite the opposite — but this unplanned birth story turned out to be a good birth experience.

Organizing the heaps of baby clothes you inevitably get from friends and family is one of the bigger pre-baby chores. I advise against washing everything you’re given but am a huge fan of hanging up what you have by size so that you can see what’s available and which sizes you’ll need more of. To do this, you’ll need some great clothing dividers!

My Modern Bohemian Mother Blessing

Being Mama/ Home/ Home Page/ Parties/ Pregnancy

Family and friends were a bit confused when they heard that I was having a mother blessing instead of a sprinkle or baby shower to celebrate my third baby. I got a lot of confused, “What is that?!” responses even after explaining it to them.

After having our second baby, my husband and I decided that we’d both be up for one last kiddo. With our daughter and son having a 6-year difference between them, we wanted to have this baby closer to our son’s age, so we started trying for our last baby about 4-6 months into postpartum. Read more

3 things About Cloth Diapering You Need to Know

Being Mama/ Home Page/ Pregnancy

This cloth diapering post is sponsored by P&G and Tide but all opinions are honest and my own.

Have you ever thought about trying cloth diapers? I was determined to cloth diaper when I had my first baby and even tried a cloth diaper delivery service! But with little information and a high delivery bill, my time with cloth diapers didn’t last very long. With my second kiddo, I had more information about the types of cloth diapers and how to clean them myself so I’ve learned a lot about cloth diapering and how to make it work for my family. Here are a few things about cloth diapering that I’ve learned over the years that you should know. Read more
