Happy New Year!! Wishing all of our readers many blessings as you welcome the new year. I trust your holidays were wonderful and that you are looking forward to all the promise of a fresh slate.
These are probably going to keep being evening editions - thank you for your patience as we ramp up posting again in the New Year. I am really placing a high value on being Peaceful Mama for my kiddos, which means that being on the computer is taking a back seat to homeschooling and teaching classes this season.

Welcome to our newest continuing feature,
Welcome to today's guest blogger, Koren Michelle. She is the founder of Total Momma + Family Care, providing postpartum care, family fitness and nutrition classes, and support for mamas at all stages of their parenting journey.
I had my son in 2010, I didn’t know anyone with kids. All of our family is back in Ohio. I was on my own. However, I knew I wanted a homebirth. I was determined to succeed with
breastfeeding, cloth diapering, and babywearing.
While I did succeed with all of these things, that first year was TOUGH.
