How To Cope with Morning Sickness

pregnancy By January 8, 2020 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

Morning sickness is a bit of a misnomer; while morning is the most common time to experience feelings of nausea, morning sickness can be experienced at any point in the day – especially if you are carrying twins. Researchers aren’t entirely sure what causes morning sickness, but there is a general consensus that morning sickness is at least partially related to hCG, (human chorionic gonadotropin), a hormone produced during pregnancy. During a multiple pregnancy, hCG levels are higher than in a singleton pregnancy which explains why episodes of morning sickness tend to be elevated in twin pregnancies. This leaves many moms asking how to cope with morning sickness.

Are Nail Polish Fumes Safe During Pregnancy?

FAM, pregnancy By December 1, 2019 No Comments

Q: I am a part time esthetician, and go to client’s homes to give manicures and pedicures. No artificials are used, so the fumes are straight from the regular nail polish bottles. Now that. I am trying to get pregnant, I am wondering if I should stop doing my house calls till all is said and done, or is it ok that I continue doing mani’s and pedi’s throughout my pregnancy?

Cloth Diapering Basics

Cloth Diapering Basics

baby, FAM By November 28, 2019 1 Comment

Cloth diapers are making a comeback. I used them with both of my kids and didn’t even have a service! Diaper rash was almost non-existant, as were blowouts. Thank the diaper gods for that..  Reusable cloth diapers are increasingly becoming a household fixture for new families. Parents are more conscious of their choices for their children, more mindful of their spending habits and more aware of how their choices affect the environment.  We have some cloth diapering basics to help you make a good decision.
