No one wants to think about the bad things that can happen during pregnancy or right after birth and to wonder what it would be like to have a miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal loss. However, for some families those bad things that only seem to happen to "other people" happen to them, and they need the love and support of their friends and ...

I can't believe it, but my fourth child is already 5-months-old, and it's been quite the ride! He was a challenge to get pregnant with, we had a challenging pregnancy, and his newborn and infant stages had some unique-to-us challenges as well.

I think all baby names are inspired by love because, if we as parents didn't love the name, we likely wouldn't have chosen it for our child. If you want your baby to not only know a lot of love went into their name choice, but that it's also inspired by love itself, there are some names that will drive that point home. ...

When my kids were young, I looked forward to two o'clock in the afternoon. That afternoon naptime was when the house would be quiet and still for on average two hours, and it was glorious. I found myself looking at the clock around 1:30, counting down the last half hour until it was time for them to sleep and time for me to get a little break. ...

Miscarriage is not easy to talk about, but I believe it's an important conversation we should be having. It's not easy to hear about miscarriage either because it's not a happy topic, but again, I believe it's imperative to listen. You can learn a lot about how to support the women and families who have been through miscarriage and talking can be ...
