Editor’s Note » July/August ‘11
Welcome! As a mother of two little ones, I am always on the lookout for information and things that are green, natural, and organic. And I thought it was a good time to share my finds with you. So as an extension of myself, and with the help of my wonderful local writers and staff, we centered this issue around green, natural, and organic babies and mamas. So if you are a mother, grandma, or are going to be a mother for the first time (or again), I hope that you find a little something new in this issue to take with you. I searched the area high and low and found some AMAZING local companies that tout green, organic, and natural products. We received some awesome samples for baby and mother that I hope you will try as well. We got so many of them that we couldn’t feature them all in this one issue, so stay tuned for more wonderful product features.
Our awesome local writers were also on board to share their knowledge. A big thanks to Toni and Dr. Judy for sharing their birth experiences with us. Two amazing stories of independence, strength, and love. I hope you enjoy them. Also, Patricia Wickman shares with us how babies and mothers need to be pampered after labor and she is so right.
Thanks again for reading and supporting us. Until next time, be balanced, be healthy and be well!
