Ectopic Pregnancy Is Part Of The Abortion Debate Because Pro-Birthers Are Rabid Beasts

by pregnancy journalist
Sigh. Here we go again. Or maybe not again, but rather, here we still are. Still arguing that a woman’s health and life are insignificant. That a woman has no right to make choices about what gets poked and prodded into her. That she has no say in what happens to her reproductive system. That ironically (and absurdly), those who claim to be “pro-life” are willing to risk a woman’s life by denying her a critical medical procedure that could save not only the mother herself, but also possibly save her chances to have children in the future. This is […]

‘I’ve been on maternity leave for exactly 6 weeks. I couldn’t imagine heading back to work today.’: Mom insists it’s just ‘not enough time’ to ‘connect with our babies’

by pregnancy journalist
“I’ve been on maternity leave for exactly six weeks. As I sit here with my newborn nestled on my chest, I couldn’t imagine heading back to work on this day. But that’s the reality for so many women in the U.S. And it breaks my heart. It takes 9+ months to grow and nurture a baby inside the womb, yet women are expected to leave their newborns just a few weeks later and return to work? In six weeks that I’ve been home, I haven’t slept more than four hours at a time. My days revolve around changing diapers, nursing […]

’90 Day Fiance’: Laura Swears On Her Son’s Life About Her Ectopic Pregnancy, On A Vacation In Ecuador

by pregnancy journalist
We have seen 90 Day Fiance couple Aladin and Laura involved in some pretty petty issues. How can we forget the great vibrator situation and how Aladin completely freaked out about it! Well, this time, things have escalated to a whole new level. According to Laura, Aladin blocked her, and she was desperate to get his attention. As for her pregnancy, we can’t call it completely fake, and we can’t say that Lara was totally honest about it. Sounds puzzling, right? Let’s take a look at what’s going on in detail. 90 Day Fiance: Laura In Ecuador Right Now talker_of_shits […]

by pregnancy journalist
That women are still in this position is enraging, says Mariella Frostrup. Know your rights and stand your ground The dilemma I have a 21-month-old baby and took six months maternity leave.

If I have my “family life” hat on, I don’t want to leave […]

17 best online maternity clothes stores in Canada

by pregnancy journalist
Shopping for clothing isn’t always the easy and fun movie montage we want it to be. (Shocking that the likes of Pretty Woman led us astray!) In fact, plenty of us struggle with fitting rooms and finding the time to shop and there are often more misses than hits, which is why it’s no surprise that more and more people are shopping online. Now, shopping for maternity clothes when you’re pregnant or recently postpartum? It’s likely not at the top of your list given a , and, did I mention that lack of time? Don’t fret. There are more online shops […]

Liberals pledge to boost Canada Child Benefit, remove tax from maternity leave | CTV News

by pregnancy journalist
ST. JOHN’S, N.L. — The Liberals promised Tuesday that if re-elected, they will boost the Canada Child Benefit for children under age one and make maternity and parental leave benefits tax-free. Leader Justin Trudeau said that raising children is expensive and challenging, particularly in the first year, and this would help. “In those first few months with a new baby, when it’s a struggle to get enough sleep, let alone get to the top of your game at work, it can be an even bigger concern,” he said. “People should be focused on spending time with their baby, not worrying […]

Are Working Mums Just Lazy?

by pregnancy journalist
Poor Kelly Brook! She’s been talking about how annoying it is when women she works with use their kids as an excuse when they can’t make it to a meeting or meet a deadline. As a non-mother herself, it must be very frustrating to work so hard and show up 100% of the time, only to be consistently let down by women who have children. “I don’t have children, so I don’t always understand,” she said on ITV1’s Loose Women this week. “But I do work with some women that if they can’t make an appointment or can’t do something, […]

March of the Mummies: a Halloween protest to help working mothers | Life and style | The Guardian

by pregnancy journalist
This Halloween, hundreds of women dressed as bandaged-wrapped mummies will march for the rights of working mothers. Campaigners say that archaic legislation allows workplaces to discriminate; about one in nine new mothers said they have been forced out of their jobs, according to a 2015 report by the Equality and Human Rights Commission, which could mean as many as 54,000 women a year. What I wish I could tell my boss: ‘I am terrified to go on maternity leave’ Read more March of the Mummies was organised by Pregnant Then Screwed, a campaign group that provides a platform for women […]
