Top 10 Dos & Don'ts for New Mommies
July 27, 2011
Today, we launch Feminists for Life's "Raising Kids on a Shoestring" e-series with Elizabeth Hanink's article on "Pregnancy, Childbirth & Postpartum Care."
Pregnancy should be a joyous time, but expenses can cause worry and stress-- and rob you of some of the happiness you deserve at this special time. Just emember there are many ways to economize without sacrificing essentials, and there is plenty of help available for the asking.
FFL speaker Sally A. Winn also dispenses some practical advice (with a touch of comic relief) in "Sally's Top Ten Dos and Don'ts for New Mommies."
When pregnant women, parents, and their children face economic hardship-- when so many people are struggling just to get by-- we need to be here for each other. Together we are strong. Together we can create a community of mutual support.
FFL's "Raising Kids on a Shoestring" issue of The American Feminist magazine is dedicated to every woman, every teen who is pregnant. You are not alone.
"Raising Kids on a Shoestring" is for struggling families. There are solutions.
"Raising Kids on a Shoestring" is for caregivers and helpers of all kinds-- extended family and friends, coworkers and roommates, social workers and advocates, community leaders and supporters. We recognize your enormous work of putting love into action by helping women and families in need. You don't do it for thanks, but we thank you just the same.
