Why Not Home

I never thought I would have my babies at home, but that’s exactly what I did. The first time I heard about home birth, I was in the fifth grade, and a classmate said she’d been born at home. I remember thinking her parents must have been hippies. In the years that followed, many of my […]

Race Report: Yeti Chase 5k

I signed up for a three-race series this fall. I figured this was a great way to stay motivated, save a little money, and avoid the aggravation of choosing all of the exact right races.

How My Home Birth Book Was Conceived

So, last week I told you I am (gulp) working on a book. I know, right? [Clears throat. Attempts to evoke confident tone] I’m writing a book. In January, my friend and I talked each other into taking this online class that coaches you through the steps of writing and publishing a book, and within […]

Why I Chose Home Birth

A friend invited me to the home birth of her child a few years ago. It was a really special- dare I say, spiritual- experience to witness a life coming into this world. Not to get too woo-woo on you but it was life-affirming. You know how you feel at a wedding when they say […]
