Advanced Maternal Age

Advanced Maternal Age. Denial. Twins. (And Mar-a-Lago.)

I waited a long time to get pregnant. Too long apparently, because once I began the process of fertility treatments at the age of 36, my chart proclaimed, “advanced maternal age.” Wait, what?

And even though I knew, intellectually, that my big boobs didn’t necessarily mean more food for my baby, it seemed like I had good equipment for […]

It Will Be Okay: How To Support a Mama with Postpartum Depression

Days after my oldest was born, I found myself walking around in a fog. I was still recovering from a painful cesarean delivery—one I hadn’t planned for or expected. I was trying to adjust to my new normal: sleep deprivation, stressing about trying to nurse my baby and looking beyond recognition. “Welcome to Motherhood,” I […]
