MamaBlogger365 by *Dr Mama*, Dancing into Mother Care

The major problems from my mother’s blood pressure spikes and other simultaneous illnesses seem to have receded at this point so we are not living on the edge quite like we were last week. But things are changed now. I am thinking about my job in terms of what my parents need, I am thinking about my finances not in terms of personal savings or home improvements but in terms of the housing I may need to help fund, or even fund outright, and in terms of how on earth I can do that.

*Dr Mama* – Initiations Into The Sandwich Generation, MamaBlogger365

This is my first of what is likely to be many posts about being a member of the “sandwich generation.” I’m writing about it today because it is all I can think about; the issue became suddenly salient for me as my mother, who has historically struggled with high blood pressure was hospitalized for a … Continue reading

Since the kidney transplant that saved my life in 2000, I’ve been on fire to do whatever I can, in whatever time I have left, to empower and celebrate women.

*Dr. Mama*, ‘On Letting Children Be’ – MamaBlogger365

So in some ways I have tried to live up to my youthful vow about what kind of parent I’d be. But the truth of the matter is that I have, many many times, been quite dissatisfied with where my children were at various points, and even now, there are points at which I regret the choices they make. I have found myself, and do find myself, wishing they could be more this or less that; I do find that my identity is quite wrapped in them and their choices.

MamaBlogger365 – The Amazing Journey by Natasha Kaiser

To me motherhood is an amazing journey. It starts from the time you find out you are pregnant and decide to keep the child… through the traumatic time of birth… to the life-altering moment when you look that infant in the eyes and know you will impact the rest of their lives…To improve motherhood I believe we need more support for mothers who want to return to school…

MamaBlogger365 – ‘Student Mom’ by Kaitlyn Dalpini

I am a mother of a beautiful 9 month old girl, but I’m also a student. I split my days between attending college classes and changing diapers, teaching my daughter how to use a sippy cup and studying for exams. I face a lot of judgment daily because I’m a young mom. But I complete my classes while maintaining a 3.5GPA and I nurture an intelligent, happy girl to grow to her best potential. I find it so challenging but rewarding every day. I want to share the knowledge I’ve gained—the pure joy in loving and teaching an innocent little girl.

MamaBlogger365 – Thirty-eight!!!!! by Lynn Kuechle

According to the Save the Children, Mother Index, the United States ranks 38th in the world of the best places to be a mother…38th… the United States of America!! “A woman in the US is more than five times as likely as a woman in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Greece or Italy to die from pregnancy-related causes in her lifetime and her risk of maternal death is nearly 10-fold that of a woman in Ireland,” the report said as well as the fact that we have high infant mortality and a low pre-school enrollment.
