WHY TAMPONS ARE SO BAD FOR YOU

I hate tampons.  I really do.  I hate how they feel going in.  I hate being pinched by plastic applicators.  I hate how they feel coming out.  I hate forgetting that they are there and peeing on the string or WORSE, wiping and accidentally yanking the string as I go.  I do not like tampons. When you menstruate, your uterus is trying to get rid of it’s monthly lining.  This lining is made up of both liquid and tissue, and tampons…

WHY VAGINAS?

I still remember attending maturation as a kid.  I actually raised my hand because I knew that womb was another word for uterus and I kind of can’t believe that my 11 year old self was brave enough to say that aloud.  It turned out to be foreshadowing because here I am, happy to talk about the private things we don’t always like to say aloud. Between attending births as a doula, a photographer and a birth assistant to a…

6 TIPS FOR POSTPARTUM FASHION

This post was originally published on A Day in April. I can’t ever claim to be any sort of fashionista, in fact, most days I don’t get dressed unless I HAVE TO, postpartum or otherwise.  I’m all about loungewear, especially in this heat but occasionally I have a date with Mr Davis, church, or some other reason I have to put real clothes on.  I have found a few favorites that I keep coming back to when it comes to dressing…

ALL THE THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT MATURATION

This post was originally published on TodaysMama.com. I’ve had the opportunity to teach the maturation program at our local schools a few times now and each time I just love it.  Working in Women’s Health has made me realize just how important education about this is-especially starting off on the right foot.  I’ve spoken with too many adult women who have been mis-educated or uneducated about even the simplest parts of female anatomy and it’s very concerning!  I’ve compiled a list of…

WHY SHOULD I HAVE A HOME BIRTH WITH A CERTIFIED NURSE MIDWIFE | WITH PICTURES!

This post was originally published on my personal blog A Day in April, and has been revised for The Vagina Blog. Here in America, we’re often afraid of birth.  We have very little exposure to it, and the exposure we have is typically over-dramatized in movies and horror stories from friends.  It’s very easy to be afraid of something we haven’t ever seen.  I think that’s especially true when it comes to birth at home.  I really wanted to put…

MY BIRTH DISCLAIMER

I wanted to add something to the top of all of my posts about birth because it is such a personal topic for so many. The most important thing I want to express is that I’m never here to pass judgement.  I’ve seen birth in many different settings, with many different caregivers and have formed opinions about what I think is the best way to do things. That doesn’t mean it’s the best way for YOU to do things. We…
