Eliminate Fears About Childbirth
Fear about childbirth is real. Fear, and the lack of personal empowerment that results from it, is at the root of unnecessary birth pain, difficulties and unnecessary interventions. Getting rid of those fears is a key to unlocking the potential for a positive birth experience. Here are some suggestions to reduce fears about birth.

Plus-Size Pregnancy Can Be Healthy
If you're plus-sized, you've probably heard things about how your weight can affect your health. But being plus-sized doesn't mean you can't have a wonderful, healthy pregnancy and a beautiful, healthy baby if you get the information you need and receive good medical care.

Genetic Consultation - Finding and visiting a genetic counselor or other genetics professional
A genetic consultation is a health service that provides information and support to people who have, or may be at risk for, genetic disorders. Learn what is it, who needs it, and how to find it.

Baby Names From Nature
Nature is all around us, in beautiful glory every single day and season. Celebrate Gaia by giving your baby a name from nature.

Self-Awareness for Kids and Grownups
In this month's Nurture Mom column, authors Rick Hanson, Ph.D., and Jan Hanson, L.Ac. answer the question, "Sometimes I'm with my kids and suddenly I'll start feeling angry or frustrated or sad and I don't understand where that came from. Other times, our preschooler will just start lashing out but he can't say what's bothering him. Any ideas?"

Breakfast for Dinner
Breakfast foods are comforting and delicious. It's too bad that most of time we are eating them in a mad-dash to get the day started. So why not turn your day upside down and enjoy some fine breakfast fare in the evening? Fresh Baby co-founder Cheryl Tallman shares some delicious recipes for dinner breakfast meals that everyone, including picky toddlers, will love!

Best Ideas for Kids' Birthday Parties
Putting together a super birthday party for your child is easy when you have a creative theme. Just think about what your child's current interests are--soccer, magic, makeovers or music--and then wrap the party around that theme. Here are a few party themes for different ages, complete with details, to get you started.
