Pregnancy is so different the second time. As a mom who is blessed with many mom-friends, I expected that my second pregnancy would be different than my first. Even so, I was unprepared for how significantly different my experience would...
As the due date of my second little approaches, I find myself talking more often about my first birth experience. Like the first time, I'm trying to plan what I can plan and the topic comes up as people...
Having just had my third c-section I thought I would share my knowledge and experiences from a patient’s viewpoint in case the information might help someone. Maybe you are currently pregnant and are terrified your delivery may end up...

Our Baby Has a What?

The Call  My husband and I were in Chicago for a short getaway while pregnant with baby #2. I got a call that no mother-to-be wants to hear. My doctor called and explained to me that after our 20 week...
