Division: What Are We Fighting For?

May 16, 2012

I recently asked on our BWF page if people thought there was division in the birth community (moms and professionals) or unity. Everyone answered division on some level. One woman, an OB, asked, “What are we fighting for?” Good question. This is not referring to women who are fighting to have a voice or for […]

Loving Each Other Enough

May 14, 2012

“The trouble with the world and the trouble with you and me is that we don’t love each other enough. And if we do, we don’t bother to show it, or we don’t bother to say it. If the world is to know love, it has to be in your heart and in mine.”  -Marjorie […]

The Rad Placenta

February 2, 2012

I was recently banned from posting on BWF and personally on Facebook for this placenta picture taken by Seana. I was also warned that next time, pages and profiles might be deleted.

The Big Bad Epidural

January 26, 2012

The Natural Birth Community is quick to say, “Don’t do it! You can do it without it! An Epidural is dangerous! It is evil and causes problems!” Mostly, this is true. You CAN do it naturally and Epidurals do come with risks to mom and baby. There are studies, personal experiences and more that show […]
