An issue very close to my heart!
Think gay and lesbian parents have the same rights as heterosexual parents now that same-sex marriage is legal in 32 states? Think again.

We live in a scary world where bad things sometimes happen. That's no reason to become part of the fear-based parenting culture.

I support breastfeeding in public but don't think that's the issue here...
Police say Megan Christopherson was asked to leave the pit area at a Brad Paisley concert due to concerns over her baby’s safety. She says it’s because she was breastfeeding in public. I say she’s being ridiculous.

The NFL drafted its first openly gay player — that's big news. Kids watching Michael Sam kiss his partner on national television shouldn't be.

My kids know about the Ray Rice incident so the least I can do is talk openly about it with them.

What's YOUR take?
When my kids were younger, they walked to elementary school by themselves. They played at the local park without me. They stayed home alone after school. Apparently, the cops should have been called. Parenting isn't criminal but the latest news report is.

Breaking up is hard to do, especially when you're pregnant and feel you need a different doctor or midwife. Moms share tips for saying "bye" and finding the best provider for you and your baby.

Learn how doulas and midwives complement each other and how you can benefit from extra labor support.
If you think having a midwife means you don't need a doula, think again. While doulas and midwives may have similar approaches to labor and delivery, their roles are very different.
