Last month I shared with you the best strollers for city moms. Today I’m going to list the best strollers for suburban moms! But what differentiates the perfect stroller for the urban mom and suburban mom? In my opinion it’s all about lifestyle. Compared to city moms, a lot of suburban moms have more space, bigger cars, are driving more frequently, are more price conscious, and have better walking access to local parks. Because they…

This post has been compensated by Intimina for an honest review. Read our policies page for more information. We’ve all heard about Kegel exercises. We try to do them when we remember (which for most of us is hardly ever), and we’re always wondering if we are doing them correctly. I will be honest, even though I am constantly telling my clients that they need to be working on their Kegels before pregnancy, during pregnancy, and after baby, I am not practicing what I preach. The problem is that I always feel awkward when I am doing them. I ask myself, “Am I squeezing long…

This Is Birth

talking about lisa ling's this is birth, baby chick

As a doula and student midwife, it’s sometimes difficult to explain my profession to people. My automatic answer is, “I help deliver babies!” This normally either scares people off or intrigues them enough to ask more questions. I want to strike a balance between educating people about the kind of gentle, supportive births that I know doulas and midwives make possible and overloading them with too much information. Birth workers have a reputation as hippies, witches, medicine women, that is often negative and not indicative of the very professional and important work that we do. I’ve always known I wanted…


YEAH BABY! by Jillian Michaels | Book Review

I was honored to have the opportunity to interview Jillian Michaels about her new book, Yeah BABY! I didn’t have enough time to read her book before our interview (since I only had two days), but I did have some time to read her book before I published my interview article. I was pleasantly surprised with the useful information that she provided. There were so many points that I wanted our readers to know that I thought would be helpful during their pregnancy, so I decided I would do a book review for all of you. You know how there are CliffsNotes that you can read to get the…

This post was sponsored by Rodale for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Read our policies page for more information. When you hear the name ‘Jillian Michaels’ you either love her or… are afraid of her. 😉 I happen to be on the love side, and I am inspired by her no-nonsense, can-do attitude and her passion for helping others. She has done so much in her career (through television, her DVDs and/or her books) to educate and support people through their health and wellness journeys. As one of the world’s leading fitness experts and a renowned nutritionist, she has been a tremendous fitness resource for all…
