    Hyperemesis Gravidarum - Not Just Morning Sickness

    As promised, we finally began our interviews with other moms! We started with Julie, an awesome mom who battled Hyperemesis Gravidarum for three pregnancies. Listen to learn from her experiences all about "HG." Here is a sampling of the questions we asked her: How did you find out that you had it? How did you manage it? What helped other than the medications your doctors prescribed? What can someone do for their friend or family member who has it?

    Taking Little Kids to Church

    Taking Little Kids to Church

    It is important to us to raise our children to be faithful people who enjoy community with others via a parish church. Taking little kids to church is not easy, though! They squirm, make noise, and sometimes disrupt your worship. Marty and Priscilla share a little about how they handle it: you can, too!

Childbirth story

3 months ago I had my first, planned Unmedicated natural ;) induced at 38 wks for blood pressure too high, epidural ~14 hours after induction started (which was first 2x cytotek then pitocin when my water broke “naturally”). Stuck at 6 cm and she was in -1 position for 5-6 hours = c-section 23.5 hours after water broke. Hoping to VBAC the next because we want more than three ;) Are you planning an episode on breastfeeding/pumping and working?

Birthday Party memories are pretty funny 🤣

It's nice to hear the thoughts of moms planning their child's Birthday Party and it truly brings things into perspective when you think back to your childhood and family traditions. I enjoyed this episode and it made me laugh out loud this morning. Thanks
