Link Love From the Mommypotamus

I ran across several articles this week that are worthwhile reading if you like birth, health, and parenting related stuff. And since, ahem, you’re here I bet you do!

The Man-Nurse Diaries

An interesting article from a male RN and father of four: Why I Wouldn’t Give Birth In a Hospital (Had I a Uterus).

What I witnessed in school was, when birth is imminent, the mom is typically helped, flipped, tossed, or otherwise forcibly put on her back, her legs are thrown up into stirrups or held aloft by nurses (or family, innocent bystanders, Simon of Cyrene—whoever’s handy), and everyone starts hollering at her.

Avoiding Burnout

Thanks Esther for sharing this link with me! Here’s an excerpt:

“But, realistically speaking, can we eat everything healthy all of the time? Maybe if you are superwoman. Or maybe if your family is still very young. Let me explain…

    Thanks for the link to The Lawbratory. As a vegetarian (but not a vegan) who values raw and whole foods I really appreciated it.

      Thanks Melodie! I am always looking for ways to incorporate more raw food into our diet. Since my daughter is not impressed with simply cut veggies, I have been returning to my raw food recipe books for ideas, but needed more inspiration. I’ll definitely be trying some of The Lawbratory’s recipes. Yay for something new!
