A nuts-and-bolts approach on how to actualize the New Age concept of living in the present moment before conception, during pregnancy, throughout delivery and in the midst of postpartum motherhood for the busy woman who desires to do and have it all.
Birth Formations: What Multiple Home Births Teach About Living, Laboring, and Mothering in the Now
Encapsulates over ten years of practice in the holistic healing arts and alternative health field to tackle the sensitive and controversial note that all of our reality rests on our ability to think things through.
The delicate and intense call of motherhood states unequivocally that:
"You can't think your baby out."
This book aims to break that one sentence down into doable parts.
Part I: Beginnings
This section targets preconceived notions about how to create our reality/birth/presence/experience.

Part V: Beyond
This section gives you permission to fly.

Right before my youngest daughter turned one year old, I started feeling antsy. With a busy schedule as a stay-at-home mom of three young children, I had wondered when I would have the time to write down her birth story.
Because hers was the birth that facilitated the peak of all my births, I wanted to honor it. I wanted to give it the time. I also felt as if I needed to consolidate the lessons I learned from the previous births in order to move onto hers.
So I began documenting what I learned about a year ago. I was on a roll and zipped past both births before my thirdborn's birth. Then I got stuck and felt I needed to come back to this project at a later time when baby was older. I trusted this timing. I'm glad I did.
Birth Formations: What Multiple Home Births Teach About Living, Laboring, and Mothering in the Now is a response to the questions I've been asked by mamas of one and mamas of two who ask me just how I do it being a mama of three young ones who have yet to enter kindergarten.
I really sat with that question and crafted a response, shaping this book in a way that would answer the most pressing issues that I often hear about from other new and overwhelmed mamas.
The blurb at the left will inform you how I've structured the book. Because this is yet another book for the new mom, I'm conveniently calling it a sequel of sorts to the New Moms, New Families: Priceless Gifts of Wisdom and Practical Advice from Mama Experts for the Fourth Trimester and First Year Postpartum anthology that I edited in 2012.
Speaking of that anthology, it made two #1 Amazon bestselling lists on Saturday, February 7, 2015, in the Parenting > Motherhood category and the Personal Health > Healthy Living category.

For awhile, I have made my Cloth Diapering Made Easy ebook a complimentary download at all retailers as a way to encourage and promote widespread use of cloth diapers. The book is now available at a nominal price that will ultimately save people money if they choose to go down the cloth diapering route.
I know I have not once regretted going all cloth with my babies. In fact, the very first set of cloth diapers I invested in for Baby #1 is still around right now to serve Baby #3. Not only that, I enjoy the convenience of not having to make a diaper run. If I get close to running out of diapers, all I have to do is just stuff everything into the washer and then put them into the dryer. That's easy, especially since both machines are in the home.
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful 2015. Want to hear more deals? Sign up for my newsletter.
