Why Black Moms Fear For Their Lives

Why Black Moms Fear For Their Lives

I have given birth three times in the past four years, each time in a different hospital with a very different experience. A year or so after my first child was born a friend sent me an NPR feature on traumatic child birth in the US, and I wasn’t surprised to see the hospital where I had my first featured in it. I discovered that those on Medicaid (like I was), but most especially black and brown women had received lackluster to terrible care in that hospital. Still trying to understand why I had been treated the way I was there, I started to look a little deeper into the issues pregnant women face in the US today.

Post-Partum Sex and the New You

Post-Partum Sex and the New You

Hey ladies! So... what about postpartum sex?!? No matter how many weeks postpartum you are, postpartum sex can feel like an exciting prospect (no baby belly in the way) or it can feel daunting considering your body isn’t the same after birth. I always laugh when people say that your body can pop back into shape after birth. It’s just not true. That’s not to say that you can’t find a happy medium and invest in your health and wellness to create the postpartum body that you love, because you can, but if you’ve had a vaginal birth no matter how “quick” your tissues heal they have taken a beating and need time to repair.

Afraid of having a C-section

Afraid of having a C-section

Calling all mamas that are C-section skittish! First of all I want to say: mama, don’t feel alone. Second I want to say: mama, release the guilt. Maybe you’ve done everything that you can think of to avoid a C-section. You hired the doula, you chose a midwifery practice, you took hypnobirthing classes and yet, despite all your efforts it’s looking like a scheduled Cesarean birth is in your future.

When I Was Born I Didn't Have a Disability

When I Was Born I Didn't Have a Disability

When I was born, all 5 of my senses (eyes, ears, mouth, nose, and touch) worked! At the age of 18 months, I lost one of my senses due to a fall. My sense of HEARING no longer worked. Of course, being the ornery 2 year old I was, I did not let it affect my way of life.

Mirror Mirror on the Wall, will I ever get my PRE-baby figure back, after all?

Mirror Mirror on the Wall, will I ever get my PRE-baby figure back, after all?

“Mirror mirror on the wall, will I ever get my former figure (before pregnancy) back?” These words I muttered to myself on the days I was brave enough to pause in front of our mirrored wardrobe. Crashing back to reality after our honeymoon bliss accompanied with overindulgence resulted in my husband and I signing up with a Personal Trainer to whip us back into shape. With A LOT of sick, sweat and tears, together we achieved our fitness body peak. I’m not going to lie, it was incredible! I honestly felt on top of the world, I had even more energy after the gruelling workouts and I wasn’t starving either – BOOST!!

Make Yourself a Priority

Make Yourself a Priority

I’m not sure if that’s a woman nature but we often tend to look after everyone around first before thinking about ourselves. Especially moms like us, doing everything for, around and with kids, completely neglecting our needs. No time for healthy food choices, no energy for exercises and no way to pamper ourselves whatsoever. Well, sometimes we don’t even have time to think about it all...Can you relate?

Mamas, We Need to Talk About Consent

Mamas, We Need to Talk About Consent

It’s all over the news: Weinstein, Spacey, the president, the #metoo campaign, and people speaking up and speaking out about sexual harassment, assault, and violence. Now is the time to not only talk about what continues to be normalized behavior in our society but also to talk about how we can make REAL change. As parents we talk about looking for signs of abuse, and preventing abuse, but how can we actually help our children see and know the signs of danger? How can we also help our children to NOT become perpetrators of assault and harassment?
