  • Attachment Parenting: An Introduction - Since humans have been on this earth, we have reared our babies in this way, and it has worked because it is what babies, and their mothers, are adapted to; hormonally, physiologically, and developmentally.
  • Pain in Labour: Your hormones are your helpers - Even after labour has started, there are certain conditions that will slow, or even stop the process. If the fight-or-flight hormones are activated by feelings of fear or danger, contractions will slow down.
  • Epidurals: risks and concerns for mother and baby - Epidurals and spinals offer labouring women the most effective form of pain relief available, and women who have used these analgesics rate their satisfaction with pain relief as very high. However, satisfaction with pain relief does not equate with overall satisfaction with birth,5 and epidurals are associated with major disruptions to the processes of birth.

  • Lotus birth - a Ritual for our Times - Lotus birth is the practice of leaving the umbilical cord uncut, so that the baby remains attached to his/her placenta until the cord naturally separates at the umbilicus, exactly as a cut cord does, at three to ten days after birth.
  • Giving Birth at Home - Giving birth at home is a safe and satisfying choice for families who want the best possible start for themselves and their babies.

  • Heather - We've taken a lot of measures to make sure that he is a happy and well cared for kitty

    I purchased 2 of these for the main living area of my home. I have 2 cats, 1 who had been exhibiting behavioral issues as my son has grown into toddler hood. We've taken a lot of measures to make sure that he is a happy and well cared for kitty, but he still acts out quite a bit and I'd read a lot of great reviews on this diffuser. I ordered the diffuser and the calming collars. These diffusers have had no effect on my cats. My trouble kitty is still clawing the chairs, maybe even more so than before. I don't necessarily think it's a poor product, but it did nothing for us here and after what we'd spend on them it was pretty dissapointing.

  • Ko Wibowo - BIG but LESS

    It is the best BIG monograph out there. It contains great projects but lacks of drawings. Some of the projects do not have enough pictures and drawings to be understood fully.

  • Creative Shopper - Smells Fantastic!

    I love the smell of this. It smells fantastic! I had a very hard time finding this in the stores but when I looked on Amazon, I found it! Yay! This was gift for my husband and he loves it!

  • Customer - Breathe Will Be Clean Smelling for a Good Long Time

    Awesome product. I've used it for 13 years ever since my dentist recommended it. You can find this even sometimes in local stores now. I also keep a tiny spray bottle of this product in the vehicles to squirt on the tongue if I forget to do it before I leave home. Swish and expel on the go. Really does work well.

  • dranobob - So many software bugs.

    UPDATE: After using this product for a few months now, I have to say it has a lot of bugs. Some features also only work if under certain conditions. For example a budget with more than a handful of items (I have about 20) causes the program to crash sometimes and can cause the mobile sync to completely lock up. Also the mobile sync seems to have issues of freezing occassionally on its own even if you don't sync a budget. Finally I've had to validate and fix account issues every few weeks. Its very frustrating to have a product require so much up keep to keep running smoothly.

  • MileHighGuy - Great magazine

    Its exactly what it says: Popular Science magazine but digital form. I take one star away for the fact the pages are unable to be dimmed no matter the tablet brightness settings.
