Recently, politics has brought cybersex addiction to the forefront of our media sources and our minds. Given political agendas, however, the focus has primarily been one of voiced outrage, questions of leadership competency and judgment about spousal reactions.
Less focus has been directed at the consideration of cybersex as addiction, and the challenges to relationships and recovery.
Given the explosion of Internet use in the last decade, experts are still building on research…Continue

Have you heard the term Lactation Nazi? It is sometimes used to describe a Lactation Consultant or breastfeeding supporter who is very very PRO breastfeeding. Someone who thinks everyone and anyone can and should breastfeed. A Lactation Nazi is often very anti-formula, anti-bottle and anti-pacifier. She is a breastfeeding idealist, not a breastfeeding realist.

Have you ever noticed that if you ask a pregnant woman,
“Are you going to breastfeed or bottlefeed?”
She usually says,
“I’m going to TRY to breastfeed.”
What’s with that? This is something that really annoys me and something I happen to think it at the root of why so many women fail at breastfeeding.
Think of anything else hard that we set out to do in life. Earn a degree. Run a marathon. Lose weight. Start a new career. Stay married.

It's true that both those numbers are on the rise: both the incidence of labor induction and autism diagnoses. In 1990, only 9.5% of all pregnancies in the US ended in drug-induced labor. By…Continue
My little guy is 8 months and very busy. It's a challenge to keep him entertained and stimulated. Now that he's sitting up on his own, it has opened up a world of possibilities. He enjoys riding in a shopping cart and he likes to participate in meal time in a restaurant high-chair, but I'm always looking for things…Continue

I am a 50 year old woman who is having a terrifically horrible time dealing with the symptoms of menopause.
I had a tough time dealing with my severe PMS during my child bearing years. I knew I would have a tough time dealing with menopause. The hot flashes have been somewhat controlled with black cohosh. I also live with the pain of fibromyalgia. I also am suffering with the depression that comes with the fibro. This is particularly hard for me because basically…Continue
With all of the recent hype about Sheryl Sandberg’s book “Lean In,” conversation is rampant about women’s success. Do we give up cooing our babies to sleep in exchange for the corner office? Do we speak up at the risk of sounding like a witch? Can we truly “have it all?” Do we even want to?
Here’s what’s missing from this conversation: what about our innate simple desire to be happy?
I am consistently amazed by how many successful, professional women with VP titles and…Continue
