our life as parents and partners, raising two little people and building a brand
by lauren cosenza
I always love other people’s professional maternity pictures and family portraits. But for us they just seem too formal or polished or posed. At the same time, I do want to document this pregnancy and preserve this moment in time…
My prenatal providers have been healthcare heroes way before we started calling them that.
Some days we can’t wait to finally make it to bath and bedtime (when we all pass out!). And some days I want to last forever — to remember forever — as they slip through my fingertips and one day probably my memory too.
I was going to write a self-depricating comment about my quarantine “diet” and accompanying lack of exercise — but I changed my mind.
In a strange reversal, I’m actually starting to feel like social media matters for me in a way tied to human connection and community.
As many expecting women and new moms are sharing the hidden blessings and silver linings of being pregnant in a pandemic, I’d like to add to the list…
When we found out the baby’s gender, after initially feeling very excited (it all became so real), I also felt… something else.
Little dude or little diva??? For our second baby, we decided to find out!
Like patients over 100 years old, who now return to their families after surviving coronavirus, your story is your own.
When you get pregnant following a loss, it may not be pure blissful total joy.
