Reading this article is a good place to start when you’re considering your perinatal options. ConsumerReports.org does an admirable job of using evidence-based research to inform those seeking perinatal healthcare options. Just know that there is world of pregnancy, birth, postpartum and breastfeeding out there that’s waiting to educate, nurture, support, stretch, and hold you and your family!
My mom is a classically trained opera singer. As a little kid, I had the pleasure of having my mom sing to me in a full and powerful voice. Her voice would transform the simplest song into a rich and full bodied experienced. Music was central in our home, as all of my mom’s family are singers and play musical instruments. If the Rees’ were at a group singing event (church, concerts, sing-a-longs etc) you could easily identify the Rees choir of voices. So when I think of my mom, I think of music – music that’s filled with passion, love, emotion, and POWER. Here are some songs that remind me of moms, motherhood, and parenting. And if you’re a sap like me, have some tissues close by.
Love to all the Mamas (bio or created) out there!
Happy Mother’s Day!!
Sing it, Miss Hill!
Take your mama out!
A song about the complex and often paradoxical nature of parent/child relationships.
A classic cheesy melty song – where are the tissues?!
“It ain’t easy…you are appreciated.”
Disclaimer: Cute mom and baby animals pictures accompany the music :).
Remember singing this with my mama!
Dedicated to Maureen Rees – love you ma.
