Hey there! I'm Linda! I was born and raised in Maine, spent the last 6 years in Portland, and now call the Boston area my home!
Most days you can find me playing on the floor with my daughter, writing love letters to my husband, and reading with a cup of tea!
I am mostly known for being able to find all the things my husband has lost, making as much food as I can from scratch, my obsession with chips and salsa, and my mad organization skills.
There is an overwhelming amount of resources out there for mamas these days. It makes me wonder how people gained so much knowledge hundreds of years ago before these resources were available!
When I first got pregnant, I did a TON of research, because I was in freak out mode because I didn’t have a clue what I was doing. Then the research tapered off, and I didn’t really do any reading about pregnancy or childbirth for a couple of months. Now that I’m getting near the end, I started to feel this need to do more research and reading so I had a solid understanding of what was happening to my body.
I’ve had books given to me by friends and doctors that have been very handy! I find the internet to be incredibly overwhelming for so many reasons, so I haven’t really been using it all that much. However, I recently came across this book Common Sense Pregnancy by Jeanne Faulkner (I don’t even really remember how I found it) and bought it on a whim after reading some reviews! I am SO glad I bought this book!
I think that most new mamas are most terrified and unsure about labor and that time period right after giving birth to their baby – I know I am! This book was great because it really goes in depth about that aspect of motherhood!
Here’s what I really enjoyed about this book:
Seriously, I think from here on out, when my friends get pregnant I want to give them this book as a gift, because I found it was so valuable! I wanted to share this today because it could potentially be helpful to new mamas!
