Thankful For The Chapters of 2017

As I reflect upon last year it was probably a bit of a mixed bag for me. I was blessed with the most incredible miracle, yet also really struggled through some challenging work circumstances and my confidence and sanity really suffered as a result. No matter what kind of year I have, I always try to reflect upon not just the good and bad that unfolded, but how I grew through those experiences. Continue reading…

Next Birth After Caesarean – Navigating the System and Defending One’s Birth Rights

After the birth of my daughter, I wrote about when birth does not go according to expectations, with her delivery resulting in a caesarean section. A previous surgical birth had multiple implications for my second pregnancy and delivery, the major one being the freedom of choice and support pertaining to a repeat caesarean section or vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC).

Grateful for 2016 and Thankful for 2017

As 2016 has drawn to a close and 2017 has arrived, like many of us I decided to take time to reflect upon the past year and look forward to what the new year holds. If you have had a challenging year in 2016, it is easy to overlook all the positive things that life brought you over the past year. I pulled out my 2016 diary and found something from each month that I am grateful for. No matter how hard or smooth sailing your year was, we can all find some joy and grace amidst the storm.

Celebrating Marriage

Last week my husband and I celebrate 6 years of marriage. Like a many things in life, it feels we tied the knot yesterday. As I reflect on what the last 6 years has brought into my life, I have compiled a gratitude list for my husband. Admittedly it was love at first sight for me, yes I pursued him, but he was still the one to pop the question! Today I can say I love him in many ways beyond his good looks; here is a few reason why…

A Little Girl Dreams

What did you dream of growing up? Has your life unfolded in the way you anticipated it would 10, 20, 30 years ago? I recall myself in tears at the age of 16, crying to my own mother that I did not want to grow up, fearing all that life held (or didn’t hold) for me in the future as an adult. At the time I probably wanted to keep the life of little responsibility, commitment and relative freedom that I had, as it made me feel secure from disappointment.
