Random Thoughts and Tidbits

I was thinking that by this time I might have another baby announcement, but the next arrival hasn’t made his/her appearance yet! However, I do seem to stay plenty busy these days seeing expectant mamas, answering numerous phone calls and emails, and keeping up with life in general. I’ve thought I’d get some articles written to post before now, but it hasn’t happened yet. Maybe it will happen sometime this week?

This past week, as I was searching for new material to share in Childbirth Class, I stumbled upon this website: http://www.thebirthfacts.com   While not written from the home-birth standpoint, it had a variety of useful information. As a disclaimer, I’ll mention that it is wise to take things read on the web with a grain of salt (my comments included!). Do your research, and get your information from a variety of sources!

Speaking of childbirth classes, I am in the process of planning for an all-day class sometime towards the end of January. We’ll cover everything from nutrition, exercise, the physiological process of labor and birth, relaxation and positional techniques to help with pain, what to expect, how the father can play a vital role…..and much more! I’m getting excited about it, and would love to get your input as to things you would like to see covered. Or perhaps you’ve taken classes before, and have some suggestions? Let me know!! Once I have the date and time set, I’ll be sure to give out more information….

And in closing, since I enjoy baby pictures, here’s another one to share-this little one just celebrated her 2nd birthday this month!
