February 7, 2018

This post is sponsored by Babylist. If you are wondering if I’m still alive, the answer is yes. I am- indeed- alive, well, and in business. We moved back to Georgia a couple weeks ago and I have yet to get my life back in order. That said, I PROMISE that I am coming back to this space for more content. I have so many great ideas lined up for you. To start the fun, I’m really excited to share…

4 Ways To Ask How You Can Help A New Mom (That Are Better Than “Do You Need Anything?”)

February 1, 2018

Hi there, hello. My name is Katie and I have been a “new mom” three times. I have brought home a newborn three whole times, each time having different challenges than the last. I would venture to say that this last time was the hardest, having an almost two year old at home. Nevertheless, the postpartum period with a new baby is undoubtedly some of the most challenging and draining times in a woman’s life, and potentially the time when…

6 Postpartum Problems No One Told You About

December 4, 2017

The postpartum period comes with a slew of uncomfortable side effects. If you are a mom, you’ve been there. Deodorant is currently helping me battle my very favorite and number six on this list: body odor. Yep, body odor. B.O. is a perfect example of something veteran moms just casually leave out of conversation when telling you about the beautiful and magical weeks after your bundle arrives. Not me, though. I am here to tell you the truth. Read on…

5 Tips For Staying Healthy Postpartum

August 23, 2017

Can we just talk about how brutal the postpartum period is? Let’s get real. There is quite possibly no other time in a woman’s life that is more physically and emotionally taxing. Not only have I had three babies, I have had three C-Sections. Each time I had more responsibilities at home and a tougher time allowing myself to recover. It’s not like we leave the hospital and go to a spa for six weeks to rest and re-acclimate. Life…

How To Diaper Bomb The New Mom

August 9, 2017

It’s BABY SEASON! What is baby season? It’s the most common time people are giving birth! In the U.S., nearly 12,250 babies are born in the late summer/early fall months. When I worked in Labor & Delivery, we pretty much knew that no one was getting time off in August or September…ever. All three of my babies were born in this time frame, too! More babies mean more baby showers, more baby gifts, and maybe even a baby of your…

Lincoln’s Birth Story

August 2, 2017

I used to tell my Doula clients to write their birth stories as soon as possible while it was fresh in their minds. Two weeks later, I’m taking that advice and diving right in to the birth story of the tiniest Crenshaw. I hadn’t had a chance to update after my 36 week appointment, but the news we took home from that was that Lincoln was probably going to be a big boy. My fundal height was measuring 41 weeks…

Why You Need A Birth Plan + Free Printable

July 24, 2017

If you are new around here, you might not know that pre-blogging, I worked in the birth world. After college and while in Nursing school, I fell in love with Obstetrics and worked in Labor & Delivery as a medical assistant. My long term goal was always to be a labor nurse and eventually complete a midwifery program. Somewhere along the way, I also decided to complete doula training, certify through a large organization, and independently work for clients. Over…

Introducing Baby Lincoln

July 21, 2017

This post was going to be a 37 week pregnancy update, but, alas, life cares nothing about our plans. Instead, I am so excited to introduce you to our newest addition, born at 36 weeks and 2 days. We weren’t expecting him so soon, so bear with me while I catch my barrings! We are all smitten with him (minus Charlie, who changes her mind about him pretty frequently). I will update more soon and definitely post his birth story,…
