{Birth Video} The Birth of Colin: A VBAC Story

The Birth of Colin: A VBAC Story is different from any of the other videos that I have shared and for that I am grateful. Not only is this a beautiful VBAC Story (Vaginal Birth After C-Section), but is one that shows how a woman can labor at home with support and then transition to the hospital and remain supported.

There is also something so moving to see a young boy both witnessing his father’s support and also being able to give his own support to his mother during her labor. You can see in one clip that he wants to comfort her and isn’t certain how. So he looks at his father’s hand, then at his mother, his father’s hand again— then gently places his hand on his mother. Love!

{Recipe} Kale Pesto

Pesto is one of my favorite things to make and have on hand. Always! I keep a jar in the refrigerator and frozen pesto cubes in the freezer! It is one of my favorite ways to sneak in a little extra dose of green goodness. I put spoonfuls of it on just about everything. I tell you, it makes any meal feel gourmet.

What You Need…generally speaking.

One thing I love about pesto is that you can be a little loose with your ingredients. Less Kale, more basil or even no basil. Skip the cheese. Have it with nuts or without. So use this recipe as a general guide and adjust it to what you have on hand and to your taste preferences of the day.
