I had the pleasure of meeting Sara at MommyCon Phoenix last year (April 2013). Since then, we have reconnected in on-line forums and kept in touch. I am thrilled to be able to feature her as June's Doula of the Month.
About Sara: I'm passionate about supporting women in their birth choices and through labor and delivery. I am a birth activist, lactivist, essential oil lover, garden growing, crafter, and stilleto-wearing granola-momma lover of all things holistic and naturaopathic.
We start the week with an homage to the brave men and women who have given their all for our freedoms...
A little Memorial Day
information from About.com:
“The U. S. Department of Veteran Affairs
, in its history of Memorial Day, reminds
us that even is we can't get to a memorial service, we can participate in The National Moment of Remembrance
All Americans are encouraged to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on
Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died
in service to the nation.
Here is this month's breastfeeding edition of #wordlesswednesday - check out all the different ways and places that Sweet Peas are being breastfed!

The hospital PICU staff credited the fact that Night Owl received breastmilk through his feeding tube as the "thing" that made a difference in his recovery.
Sorry this is a day late this week - good news is that there are still lots of amazing events to choose from in the next four days!
New this week: check out our listing of splash pads in the East Valley, as well as a link to find other splash pads around the Phoenix, Arizona area. They generally open in May and will remain open until September or October. They are a great reason to get out of the house and change your space on a day that needs fresh energy ;)
