Abby’s birth story

Happy day to you! The icicles started to MELT in Alaska this weekend – it was amazing. It’s a huge tease to me that break-up season is on the horizon. For those that don’t know, we get so much snow and ice in Alaska that it takes almost the entire month of April for it…

My third birth story!

Happy Monday and President’s Day! Today I am sharing the birth story of my third babe (second son) from this past December. His story is a little different than my other two babes because I chose to get an elective induction at 39 weeks 1 day (I’ll talk more about why I chose to do…

Chelsea’s Birth Story (Part 2…)

How is you Monday going? I hope your weekend was restful as well. It was a weekend in which the thermometer was at 0 degrees all weekend – so we did a lot of snuggling indoors in between the regularly scheduled grocery run. We get to hear part 2 of Chelsea’s birth story today! If…

Chelsea’s birth story! (Part 1…)

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Ours was as restful as life with three littles can be and Sunday gave us a little sunshine that we were took advantage of with a little sled ride around the neighborhood. Between that and snuggles, naps and play time, the weekend flew by! Today we…

Alison’s birth story!

Happy Monday! Today we get to share a sweet story from a dear friend of mine. I was able to take care of her during her pregnancy but was unable to help her during her intrapartum course (I did get a chance to help bring her second baby into the world!). She is sharing her…

Daynia’s birth story!

Happy Monday! My favorite way to break in a Monday it with a good ol’ birth story. I’ve chatted before about how important it is to share you birth story and for other women and mamas to read them. For centuries, women passed their stories from generation to generation – that’s how women learned! We’ve…

Amber’s birth story!

I am so pumped to share this birth story with you all today! Amber is one of my dear friends, a former colleague and an amazing midwife. She has a heart for educating women, empowering women during pregnancy, life and birth, and is opening doors for people to learn about the path to midwifery on…

Jessica’s birth story!

I can’t think of a better way to welcome Monday than this happy birth story. Today we get to share in the wonderful birth story of someone dear to my heart – my own sister! She is amazing. Although we live far apart, we are united by so many things across the many miles –…

My second birth story!

Whew! It’s a warm ZERO degrees in Alaska this morning – and that’s the high temperature for today. Happy Monday! Just a heads up – this is a longer post today – but I feel strongly that it has many elements to educate, inspire and empower everyone. With that said – here’s my second birth…

My first birth story!

People ask me all the time if I had babies before I went to midwifery school. I didn’t. I just always loved all aspects of labor, mamas and babies. But I would be lying to you if I didn’t say that being pregnant and having a baby humbled me in many ways and changed my…
