• Educated & Empowered: A Home Water Birth

    My birth story begins a few years before my son was even conceived! While my husband, Jeff, and I were dating we discussed children multiple times.

Unfortunately,…

  • Resting & Soaking in Brand New Baby Cleo

    Cleo’s birth story begins in the middle of a February heatwave. My husband and I had escaped our 3 children (then aged 7, 4, and 2) for a rare date night, and during dinner he leans over the table and with a cheeky grin says “So, should we have another baby?” I laugh, because we both know that the answer…
