Newsletter – April 2014    


Dear Baby Sense Moms and Dads!

Mothering changes the way we see life. It teaches us our hardest lessons but we grow in ways we never knew possible. Last month a friend had her first baby and I have been watching her explore her new role as a mom to this precious life. I love seeing moms embrace this new role and each time I observe, I see a common thread:

She had no idea how tired and emotional she would be

She had no clue how vulnerable she would feel, second guessing every choice she makes

She had never imagined just how much she would love this life and feel the overwhelming need to protect it.


Yesterday, I watched her breathe in his newborn smell and I saw her breathless with awe and love in that moment.

I never fail to marvel at the experience of a new mom – the fatigue, the vulnerability, the love and the awe – its all bundled into each moment of being a new mom.

When I congratulated my friend, I said “Welcome to our world” and she thought I meant her baby was welcome, but I was welcoming my special friend to the world of mothers, a proud, vulnerable, guilt ridden, painfully breathtaking place to be. I would have it no other way!

"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away."
