I’ll take two, please, and I’m not remotely pregnant. More
I have very little doubt in my mind that this was, at least in part, done to be an “outrageous” stunt so Lisa D’Amato could gain press — look, it’s working! — but it is still pretty awesome. More
Handbag designer Anya Hindmarch told regulators maternity leave laws were “suffocating” and could lead employers to preferentially hire men over women. More
It would’ve been a rather incredible miracle against the very laws of nature if Kim Kardashian had managed to stay away from cutouts for more than a few weeks, but miracles do not happen in LA. More
Well, Jane Krakowski said it: “Baby bump is the new black.” On every red carpet and trashy tabloid cover, pregnant women are taking over. Hell, even wanting a baby bump has been enough to provide some much-needed press to the Kardashian Klan. In fact, E!’s line-up has quite a few women who think their uterus is good for a couple US Weekly covers. More
Amy Adams, whom I will love forever because of the movie Junebug, just gave an interview to Parade magazine about being a new mom. Most of the time when you see new mothers in the media, it’s an article about how quickly they lost all their baby weight, and it just makes regular new moms who don’t have personal trainers or live-in nannies feel bad about themselves. But Adams doesn’t want to be one of them. More
I got SO excited when I read this headline on SheKnows.com. I realize that being environmentally friendly is important. There’s a reason that “green marketing” has been so effective, everyone really does want to do their share and save the planet and leave our children with a better world. Really, we do!
But it’s not easy. It’s expensive and it’s time-consuming and sometimes, it’s downright exhausting to put so much effort into one more thing… one more thing every mother can feel guilty about. More
Whether we’re pregnant, trying to get pregnant or simply have a lot of extra time on the internet, plenty of women can spend hours searching for the right baby name. We read lists of the most popular, favorite up-and-coming, celebrity-inspired and literary-inspired (by which I’m always disappointed). From there, we move to the more obscure collections – soap opera names, names from musicals or Gilligan’s Island. We search the names of every ethnicity we might possibly have a connection to. My cousin’s husband is from Moscow, so a Russian name might work. A hundred years ago, someone in my family came over from Croatia, maybe I should look at Slavic names? No, I don’t know how to pronounce them, because I’ve never even heard the language spoken, but there’s history there.
If you’re actually pregnant, this process is extremely stressful. Finding the right baby name is difficult. Getting the father of your child to agree with you is even harder. Thinking of all the possible nicknames your child can get and reconciling with them is the hardest of all. More
f you’ve watched 19 Kids and Counting or any of the related Duggar family specials on the Discovery Health channel, you might be vaguely aware of the Quiverfull movement, even if you don’t know its name. Though the Duggars play coy in the press about whether they’re actually associated with the movement, they’ve been featured speakers and guests at Quiverfull events in the past.
So what is Quiverfull? More
So who remembers Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs? Anyone? Psych 101? Probably not, but Maslow hypothesized that human beings have levels of needs which they strive to fulfill. First were physiological needs like food and water. Then comes safety, bringing shelter … More
I have a secret to admit… I enjoy it when other moms mess up. I love seeing or hearing about irresponsible mothers, because then I can sit back and say, “So maybe I let my daughter eat a cotton candy … More
Melissa Rycroft is excited to be going through her pregnancy in the public eye. “I don’t know what’s about to happen in the next few months with my body and my relationship, there’s going to be so many changes. It … More
