When you’re a single parent, you have a lot on your plate. Parenting with a partner is challenging enough, but living life as a single parent is even tougher. In fact, single parents—both moms and dads—wake up every morning to new challenges. Being a single dad comes with its own unique challenges, and takes courage, patience, and compassion to get through the day. It’s not always easy to stay positive. Here are some common ways to keep moving forward on your single-parent journey.
You've recently given birth and are now in the mood to rekindle that spark that 9+ months ago resulted in your new baby (or babies). After you have a baby, when can you have sex? You may also be wondering what forms of contraception to use in this post-baby world of yours. The latest recommendation is to wait 18 – 24 months before getting pregnant again to allow your body and hormones time to recover and balance out. Did you know that waiting also reduces the risk of premature birth? Our doulas services include answering and going over every single one of your questions and concerns. Our doulas service the Orangeville, Caledon, Toronto, Brampton, and Mississauga areas.
It's important to know your birth control options!
As a mother of two boys under 3 years old I understand the desire of many moms to give their kids the healthiest childhood possible. Of course that’s what every mom wants for their child! From the food we put into their mouths and the activities we register them for, to the cleaning supplies we use in our home - we are always, at some level, wondering if the choices we make are the right ones for our children.
How is it even possible that 2017 has come to an end?
This month, Sarah and I will be celebrating our 2 year anniversary as work wives - and my, what a journey it has been! Our honeymoon phase has long passed and we spent the early part of 2017 learning how to work smarter, got into a great groove and began functioning like a well-oiled doula machine!
