I've now had two cesarean birth experiences - one emergency C-section and one planned cesarean procedure. Recovery can be painful and very trying - especially with another child already at home - and doctors may not always fully prepare you for what lies ahead. These a...

Sometimes on this blog I share the letters I write and send to the email account I started for Daisy. I often write her emails when there are big things I want her to know even though she's too young to understand. This is what I wrote this morning, just 24 hours from...
