    Epidural for Labour : Women Share their Experiences

    Becoming a parent is a great thing, and a baby is one of life’s most precious gifts. While childbirth should be an adventurous and beautiful experience, the anticipated pain can cause great anxiety for pregnant women and their significant other.  However, with an epidural, labour can be painless. While some women opt for an epidural (medicated labour) in order to enjoy a painless labour, some want to go all the way natural. It’s all a matter of choice, as long as you can bear it. I asked moms about their experience with epidural for labour because I’m all about real life stories.  Read their responses below:  ”Yes, and it was…

    Are there ways to enjoy motherhood? Like, can  one really enjoy motherhood? Because to be honest, motherhood is more work than fun.

    20 Sleeping Baby Commandments

    Babies are so cute when they are sleeping. But sometimes, in fact, most of the time, getting them to sleep is so much work. And if your baby is a light sleeper like mine, oh, what can I say? I say more power to your (our) elbow. Last week, I wrote on my Facebook status that, ´´Transferring your sleeping baby from your hands onto her bed requires a high level of skill, heartfelt prayers, some minutes of breath holding, and quiet tiptoeing until you are out of the room.

    When to Stop Breastfeeding – All You Need to Know

    When to Stop Breastfeeding Breastfeeding During the First Month I never thought I’d love breastfeeding.

Oh my God! I cried as my baby suckled. At a point, I felt my baby was wicked for not caring about my feelings as she suckled away. I…
