My name is Allison and I live in a small town near Portland, Maine, in a dusty old farmhouse that I share with my husband, our son, and an assortment of small wild and domesticated animals. After the birth of our son Baby Henry in November of 2011, I found myself with many thoughts on the pregnancy and birth experience. Now, as Baby Henry grows, and I have gone back to work, I am collecting an assortment questions, ideas, concerns, and what-ifs. Herein, I seek to unpack these within the context of being a working mom, complete with all the curses and blessings that brings.
