I believe intentional, peace-filled, empowered births and family beginnings are possible. I became a doula to support this mission for families of all kinds who desire these things for themselves.

I’ve lived in Greater Cincinnati my whole life. I love all the perks of city life while still having a small-town feel!

I’ve lived in Cincinnati for three years (I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA). I simply love the downtown Cincinnati views!

I love being close to all of my family in Cincinnati. There are so many things to do and see in just a short drive from home!

I love how different Greater Cincinnati is (and its diversity!) Living in Walton I get to feel like I’m “out there” with land and lots of trees when I’m actually pretty close to so many things. I can drive a little south and be in farm land, drive 15 minutes north and be in Florence for shopping, 30 minutes north and I’m downtown enjoying the city lifestyle.

I love that there is always something to do in Cincinnati. There are new areas being developed all the time so finding new places is always fun. I like trying new restaurants and I love how close we are to Northern Kentucky. Many of my close friends live there and I enjoy going over the river whenever I can.

What do you love about living in Cincinnati?

I enjoy the small town family friendly feel of Loveland where I live with easy access to our ever changing downtown area. With new exciting restaurants and breweries opening all the time there is always something new to try.

Is It Time To Unlatch The Nursing Bra?

And I wore that unicorn. I wore it every day except wash days for six months. Maggie came back to the breast then, so I reintroduced kinda-sorta-underwire. I alternated those two bras for the next two years. 

Two. Years. People.

What do you love about living in Cincinnati?

I like that you can have the best of both worlds living here. There is so much to see and explore downtown, but with a quick drive outside of the city you can be surrounded by woods and fields. I love the history of Cincinnati as a city and think it is pretty neat that my great-grandfather Stanley Mathis was a finishing carpenter who helped to build Union Terminal.

Pregnancy Guide: Headaches

Can I take Tylenol for a headache during pregnancy? But what if I don’t want to take medication? Are there any natural remedies for headaches during pregnancy? Headaches can be caused by many different factors during pregnancy.

Dear Doula: I'm Hungry All The Time!

Everything is really going so well. Except, at night, as soon as I sit down to nurse, I am STARVING! I was really careful during my pregnancy to eat well and gained just 21 lbs. I’ve been trying to continue with my healthy eating now that I’m breastfeeding, but I’m really struggling during nursing sessions. I just want to eat everything in sight, especially at night! I have never felt so hungry. Is this normal?

Life & Laundry

It’s 3:47 pm. Almost time to start dinner. Looking around, listening to their sibling laughter in the other room, staring at the school papers, toothpaste, conditioner, water filter for the fridge, and receipts on the kitchen counter. The last little to-do’s of the day. Life stacks up.
