Mental Health Self-Advocacy

This past weekend I had to call my pharmacy for my new ADHD medications. Long story short, I ran out of meds and went a day without them when I shouldn’t have.

My Relactation Journey Begins

The first three months of my son’s life has been a blessing. The firsts we’re experiencing with him has been fun. I was unable to breastfeed my 4 older children, so I was hoping this would be a first for us.  Like many moms, I’ve had so many struggles with breastfeeding or pumping. My son wouldn’t latch. I read many articlesContinue reading “My Relactation Journey Begins”
