I’m waiting at the airport for a flight back home. Yesterday I had the privilege of supporting my friend while she labored to bring her first baby into the world. For many logistical reasons we weren’t sure if our plan would work. Early morning fog delaying my flight out continued to threaten the plan, even… Continue reading Airplanes to babies
To say that we are living in challenging times right now is an understatement. There is a war going on in our heads and our hearts and everyone is affected. I have the ability to live with some privilege that others do not, so it’s my job to do what I can with that privilege… Continue reading Tree Rings
This past week I’ve been remembering 4 years ago when we got to be at the births of 5 babies. Five babies, 4 labors in 5 days. If anyone’s doing the math, yes two of those babies were twins. It wasn’t as crazy as one might think, since labors tend to bunch up so we… Continue reading Birthdays

This past weekend we celebrated my girls’ 7th birthday. 7!! The evening before their birthday, around 11pm, I have always smiled at the thought of when my labor started with the POP of my water breaking. This was surprising because there is such a wide window of time when labor starts for twin babies (mine… Continue reading Coming up: Labor and Birth Class on Saturday!
I heard a new-to-me program the other day called Invisibilia, from NPR. There are some seriously good episodes on there that I highly recommend, but one caught my attention called, How to Become Batman. This show doesn’t actually have anything to do with pregnancy, birth, parenting, or breastfeeding, yet there’s a section that’s universal to all… Continue reading Check Your Expectations
