My First Experience Birthing Alone
No one should have to be alone while birthing if that isn't something they truly want. I had spent half of my pregnancy planning for an unassisted birth. Researching and planning and preparing, buying what I could and being gifted some things for birth. I was excited to have a better experience than my last birth. I was excited to welcome my first boy. I was emotional and wishing his father cared and wanted to be present. But, an unassisted birth felt like it was going to be such an empowering option!
My Experience as a Nursing Aide
I come from a line of CNAs. My mother was a supervisor at a home care-giving company at the time of her passing but had actually been a CNA/med-aide for years. I can recall going with her to a lady's house and sitting and waiting while she bathed and took care of her client as a child. Not only was she a CNA but her mother was too -- before a CNA license was even required.

The Sacred Window
The Sacred Window: The First 40 Days Postpartum We speak so much of the joy and excitement that comes with adding a new baby to our families. We share ultrasounds, daydream of who baby will be, often celebrating the baby before he or she is even born.
My First Experience with Birth Trauma
My first experience with birth trauma ---- In that in between grey of early morning, I finished up packing and eagerly left with my fiance' of the time. His father drove us to the hospital. I was going to meet my baby girl that day. My sweet baby girl. Everything I had endured with my "fiance" would be worth it as soon as I met my baby girl, right?
Life Lessons from Traveling as a Poor Single Mother
Hi, I'm Jenna. I'm a single mother of a beautiful and wild daughter, and two amazing and outgoing young boys. Before my youngest(L), I traveled with my daughter, E and my now middle child --- (we'll call him, T). I didn't start with an intention of travel. You see, E's father was abusive. He sexually assaulted me, and said very inappropriate things in regards to my daughter, he punched a hole in the door, it was not a fun time but I was young and scared. After I had T, I came to the realization that with a running vehicle, we didn't have to stay stuck. I didn't have to stay in my hometown that, like any other young person, I wanted to leave.
