Some times just hearing other moms experiences with PPD helps to ease the feeling of being all alone. Here are a few short stories to boost your resolve…. Danica: We had a rocky journey that resulted in a lot of self sacrifice (but worth it!) my son was extremely “colicky” and had horrible reflux from birth. He was also diagnosed with a lip and tongue tie which made nursing extremely painful. We had it revised but the hours of screaming and crying persisted. Turns out he has a cows milk protein allergy so both of us had to go dairy… Continue Reading…

Hello my lovelies. I would like to introduce you to Erin. Here she is in a recent photo with her beautiful brood. She looks so happy in this picture I love it. But she has not always worn that smile….here’s why. Ever since I started to develop, I hated my breasts. They didn’t grow right. One was pointed and the other was more “boob like”. I always heard people say that it was normal for them to be different so I just figured I had been dealt the short end of the stick. That being lopsided was just a variation… Continue Reading…

He is so perfect! 🙂My friends and family told me all the time that I had a great baby, a perfect baby in fact. He didn’t cry, he didn’t fuss and he didn’t need to be on me all the time. On the outside I was a happy new mom basking in the love and newness of my son.   Fletcher and I   But on the inside….:( I was beginning to have thoughts of how inadequate I was, not only as a person but more importantly a mother. It was easy to blame myself for small things that would… Continue Reading…

Pregnant Mom Fatally Shot Toddler Son Before Killing Herself in Rocky Mountain National Park  🙁 I woke up to this headline only a short time ago. It was not the first this year that I have seen, read and wept over. Not only for the children lost but for the mother who felt so lost that this was what she felt was the right thing to do. Post Partum Depression is a Killer. It is so hard to not automatically jump to judgments in these cases. I am not hear to try and convince you of this mom’s innocence nor… Continue Reading…

When Brittany started her journey into motherhood the breast vs formula debate never played a significant role in any decision she made. I love it when I hear moms who do not feel guilty for feeding their babies formula! Wether that be out of medical necessity or by personal choice. I knew that breast milk was the best for my child but I also knew that formula was there in case, if like my mother I was unable breast feed. I was 24 years old when I got pregnant with my Christmas miracle, I was told at 13 I would… Continue Reading…

“It’s commonly known that babies with down syndrome can’t breastfeed.” Annie told me. “Really? I never knew that.” “At least, that’s what a lot of people in the medical field well tell you.” she continued ” Looks like you proved them wrong! Tell me your journey.” Annie settled in and walked me though her amazing journey of beating the odds… Fortunately for us, I gave birth to my perfect daughter Charlie with a midwife at the birth center and no one told us that we couldn’t breastfeed. The first thing to know is that my little princess had low muscles… Continue Reading…

Unquenchable Ministries was established in 2007 and since this time our mandate has been to provide support and empower communities living in poverty around the world. We have done a number of different projects in Uganda such as build two playgrounds. This was to provide a safe and free place for families to gather together and create memories together. We discovered that there were very few safe places for children to Play and families together. We also have provided wells and clean drinking water in remote villages who had no access to clean water. Many children were becoming sick and… Continue Reading…

I have always wanted to be a mom. I started working with kids as soon as I was old enough to do so. I babysat then nannied. I went to school to work in daycare then went back to school to work in group homes and with child welfare. I even trained as a doula and provided support though the birthing process and postnatally. Finally we felt we were ready to try for a tiny human. We were excited and thought it would be a short journey. We were oh so very wrong. The next 10 years consisted of continual… Continue Reading…
