President Reagan said the above in October 1988 when he declared October as National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. This year we wanted to find away to honor the precious lives of those we have celebrated and grieved. Moreover, we wanted to find away to commemorate these lives for all 12 months of the year rather than just the month of October. That said, we are introducing the Forever Loved Never Forgotten Memory Wall. This page will contain the names and dates of the lives lost too soon. If you'd like to add your child, we'd be honored to remember him or her with you. Simply email us at [email protected] and include the baby's name and date. For example, to honor a child lost through miscarriage, you'd email Baby Jones and indicate which month.
Breastfeeding. Just the word can stir up strong emotions. Fear, joy, sadness, the list goes on... The actual task can be even more daunting but it doesn't have to be.
Where are my fellow twin moms?? I know you can relate to most of these. What else did you learn about motherhood after your twins arrived that you wished you had known earlier? Life with twins is extra busy, but it’s also incredible too! Enjoy the ride.

No lie and no shame, I am in the best shape of my life after having two children! And not just myself, I see my clients on the daily experience the same changes and results. I encourage you to come take a class and to get up and get moving throughout pregnancy and beyond!
I am a Doula, a woman who unbiasedly supports women, their partners, and families, during pregnancy, by supporting them emotionally, educationally, mentally, and physically. Support looks different, depending on the mother and partner, but often, I am able to assist them when they write their birth plan. There is comfort in having a plan, knowing what they want, and feeling of control, especially in pregnancy when they feel so out of control.
It all starts with one brutally honest text message, perhaps to an old high school or college friend that also has kids. And after a while, this confidante is the person you text when you accidentally pee your pants again at work. This is who you drunk text from the bathroom of a work holiday party even though you are too old to be drunk texting. This is who you text to confess you forgot to dress your kids in green on St. Patrick’s Day when every other kid at daycare looks like an Irish leprechaun. And this confidante won’t judge you, because they’re texting you the same things.
I rarely had anyone make comments on my weight prior to being pregnant. Why is it suddenly okay to make comments now that I was? I am no less self-conscious about my changing body now that I am pregnant and I know I am going to be growing, but I still do not welcome comments about my weight.
