What if we just didn’t know?

By Desiree Ahrens Desiree Ahrens

We have information-overload today. Instant access to information is at our fingertips, whether it is valid or not. If we have a question, we google it immediately.

My Birth Stories

By Desiree Ahrens Desiree Ahrens

When I was 37 weeks pregnant with my twin boys my feet were swollen, I gained 10 lbs in about 3 days, and my blood pressure shot up. At my prenatal appointment the next day, my midwife informed me it was time to get these boys out before I went into full-blown preeclampsia.

In a previous life of mine, I worked with women who were deathly afraid to walk into a large gym. No way were they going to even look at a large gym let alone actually work out there. What if someone saw them? What if they looked like they didn’t know what they were doing!? […]
