Welcome!

This is a project that was birthed with my daughter, 4 years ago on a cold February morning when 28 hours of labor ended in a cesarean section and the most unfathomable love for a tiny, pink-skinned baby girl. It is the culmination of prescription drugs for postpartum depression, the choice to be a stay-at-home mom, difficulty conceiving our son, multiple home changes, a beautiful VBAC, and a short stay in the NICU. Nothing has changed me like motherhood at yet at the same time nothing has made me more myself.

See, I have this feeling, this deep in my gut hunch that if we gave the postpartum period its proper credence we would be a completely different people- a healthier and happier society. What if women were truly prepared to become mothers and equally cared for in the months after birth? What if we treated postpartum depression differently than we do other kinds of depression and anxiety? What if we cared for the soul of a woman as she become mother and not just the growing child within? I think a lot would happen. A lot of good.

I want to discuss these questions. I want to hear your stories and share them with this beautiful community of mothers and mothers-to-be. I want to offer space for healing and a place to look at the spiritual side of mothering. And maybe something will grow from this. Maybe something will take hold and revolutionize maternity care, or maybe this meager site will touch just one person. Whichever becomes the case, I will rejoice and offer myself, my heart and my words.

Here’s to you! Here’s to your stories and your families and your hearts. And here’s to us.

  2. Two aggrieved customers of leading bookmaker in Nigeria, Bet9ja, Dennis Dickson and
    Orazurume Jude Mary, have called on the company to pay
    them their dues.

    According to The Eagle Online, the customers are not happy with the “unprofessional behaviour” of the company.

    Dickson stated that he has been deprived of his winning twice by
    the company, saying, “The first instance occurred during the 2018 World Cup, when I staked a bet with the company on the option that some selected players will not score more than 2 to 3 goals per match, all of a sudden after winning the ticket the company void it and said the option was meant to run for the whole of the tournament.

    “The second time, I staked on some players that during
    the transfer window they will not change club without loan deals included,
    after winning my ticket the company on the 31st night of August 2018 changed the optioned and said that loan deals are
    also included. Whereas, a loaned player is still the property of the parent club and can be
    recalled at any time even before the expiration of the loan deal.

When I was about 3 years old, my family was out to eat at a locally owned pizza place.
