To quest for an outrageous fortune

My husband and I have made many a perilous journey, but none is so full of “the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune” as pregnancy.

Being more than a side-kick on the quest

Having support and relief time is crucial at this stage. It is an experiential learning process; meaning that unless you experience those first few days after delivery it is not possible to understand what it feels like.

Fathers should have their own day too, one month after “Lady’s first”

Women often put men first. But a man that puts a woman first is a real treasure. We need both to put in 100% for the best results.

Happy Mother’s Day

This Mother’s Day I invite all parents to see their family as perfect, no matter how untraditional. I invite men to celebrate their manliness with courage, strength, devotion, nurturing, confidence, and all the same qualities that some of our societal ‘norms’ seem to assign to only mothers.
