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. Re Axiom 1 above:The concept of “sole-issuer” needs explanation.Isn’t every nation its sole issuer; its sole determinant of what is issued as money?If not, then does the private Fed qualify as the sole issuer n the US?Because it is surely an issuer of the US currency(unit-of-currency-denominated-electronic-tickets).Where is this explained?Thanks.

  3. Easier Placement – Since they’re wireless, these cameras can be placed
    literally almost anywhere. There is plenty more info regarding buying a camera, and I encourage that you
    keep understading about this important topic. Thermal imaging ones tend to be sought after as they do not require any light at all; they work on the principle of heat radiated by bodies.

  4. Nevertheless, it’s all carried out with tongues rooted solidly in cheeks, and everybody has got nothing but absolutely love for their friendly neighborhood scapegoat.

  10. Locating the village barn might not have been much of a challenge for my German removal firm, but carting my awkwardly shaped belongings in the narrow staircase within the barn certainly was! For long term storage it’s important to take up as little space as possible by stacking items upwards and also to keep belonging safe and dry. Next time I shall certainly purchase green, recyclable boxes when moving house again.

  11. It sounds like ‘sour grapes’ arguments to me. Whatever Mr. Rossi may or may not have done in the past he paid his debt. That past is not relevant in a discussion of LENR Devices. Far worse is the criminal and slanderous activities of the physicists and pathological skeptics in their treatment of Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons. The world is desperate for a safe and clean energy system. If successful, the e-Cat will be the greatest device ever invented and the names of the ‘Inventors of Cold Fusion’ will forever be at the top of the list of Great Men of Science!jdh

  12. You have the elite, and you have the ruling elite. They may give the impression that they're locked into battle with each other, but if some outsider threatens their position near the top, they'll join forces and kick him back down.no different for banks, political parties, crime syndicates…One would hope that judiciary would see an end to this practice, but alas, they too are elite.
