In fact the World Health Organization (WHO) encourages it.
Skin-to-skin contact begins immediately after birth and involves placing the brand new, naked baby on the mother’s bare chest with a warm blanked draped across the baby’s back.
But What About Skin To Skin After A C-Section? Continue reading →
LET GO OF STRESS!
Today I was remembering what it was like to be pregnant.
For me it was wonderful. I loved being pregnant and had little stress and anxiety.
I was thinking about this because I’m thrilled to tell you that my daughter is expecting her first baby. Yes, I’m extremely excited but also full of anxiety because my daughter’s first five pregnancies resulted in miscarriages
But today I’m happy to tell you that her sixth pregnancy is going well so far, however even at 35 weeks with normal sonograms, healthy heart beat and physical well being for my daughter, we’re all still a little concerned.
Especially my daughter who’s feeling the stress and anxity of her pregnancy.

Ever since I can remember, certainly since I’ve started this blog, there has been a growing concern as to why so many C-Sections are being performed each year.
C-Sections still account for about 30% of births today and even higher in some areas of the world.
With all the concern surrounding climbing C-Section rates you’d think that the number of C-Sections would be dropping, but they’re not.
The experts have several reasons for why so many C-Sections are still being done, but keep reading because the real reasons may surprise you. Continue reading →
As many of you know, I’m 100% pro life so I’ll be participating in the Life walk on October 26, 2013 taking place here in my home town of San Diego, Ca. to help end abortion and save a life.
That’s me on the left at our last Life Perspectives Fundraising dinner.
What is Life Walk?
It’s our annual fund raising event for Life Perspectives, the pro-life Christian group that empowers and educates families, students and adults to make like-affirming choices.
It’s organizations like these that provide support, counseling, and personal help to women who come to them with the intention of aborting their babies but are encouraged to choose life instead.
For many women who have had abortions they know abortion changes you so one of the best things about Life Perspectives is that it provides much needed counselling to women, men and families who suffer emotionally from having had an abortion.
Your generosity has been nothing less than a blessing for me and these many women in the past and I’d be forever grateful if you’d continue to find it in your heart to continue supporting me.
I have only a modest goal of $200 I’d like to reach for this year’s Walk. No donation is too small, anything that you can give will go to help end abortion and hopefully save a life
Thank you and Blessings,

Today about 30% of babies are born via C-Section. And if you check out the Unnecesarean website, the rates are even higher in many places.
But what what does that mean for your chances of having a C-Section?
It’s really difficult to say and hard to predict as there are several things that can influence whether or not a C-Section is needed.
For instance things that can increase your chances of having a C-Section might be:
- Your age
- Your weight
- Whether this is your first baby or not
- Whether you’ve had a C-Section before and the reason for the C-Section
- Your overall health
- Size of baby
- Induction of Labor
- Health of the baby
However that’s not to say that any of these things or combination of things mean you will actually have a C-Section, they are simply things that can be of concern. Continue reading →
