Wendy Davis was a teen mom

What do you think about when you hear “teen mom?” Perhaps you think about someone who was arrested for heroin recently, or maybe about someone else who came out with a sex tape (aka made a pornographic movie) with James Deen. Maybe your thoughts immediately went to shameful ad campaigns by Candie’s or New York City on preventing teen pregnancy. You might not have thought, however, about Texas State Senator Wendy Davis, who prepared an epic 13-hour filibuster on Tuesday in hopes of blocking SB 5 — a bill in front of the Texas State House that would not only ban all abortions after 20 weeks, but would also close 37 of the state’s 42 clinics, making abortion access in Texas virtually null.

But Sen. Wendy Davis is both a badass reproductive justice warrior and teen mother. Keep reading »

Men should be included in strategizing ways to prevent unplanned pregnancies, according to a new study by the Guttmacher Institute. Researchers looked at data from the 2006 to 2010 National Survey of Family Growth reported by men about unplanned births. Through analyzing the rate of happiness that each father felt when his child was born, they found that fathers that planned the birth of their child were more likely to be happy about their bundle of joy coming into the world. Married men specifically were very happy about having a child in this manner.

The study, titled, “Exploring U.S. Men’s Birth Intentions,” by Laura Lindberg and Kathryn Kost, looked at a whole bunch of facts about unplanned pregnancy and found the rate of unintended births vary between a man’s union status, age, education level, race and ethnicity. However, quite a few unplanned pregnancies are unwanted by men. Keep reading »

Naptime, feeding time … final exam? For Rebecca Mabrey, 25, of Jacksonville, Florida, that was how her and her 10-month-old baby’s afternoon was going to play out. But she was denied entrance to her final exam at Florida State College for bringing the kiddo along.

Mabrey argued that the exam fell right between her baby’s naptime and feeding time, so she felt that she had no choice but to bring her kid along to breastfeed. (Her husband was unable to watch the kid.) Florida State College did not agree: in an email, they told her children under 16 are not allowed on campus in order to maintain an environment that is conducive to learning. The school also added  they were not in violation of Florida’s maternal and infant health care law on breastfeeding because “this is not a prohibition of breastfeeding an infant.” In other words, Mabrey would be allowed to breastfeed her baby during the exam — if only kids were allowed.

This is a story about babies in wigs! My most favorite topic there is. As I mentioned previously, if I ever have a baby, it will be made to wear a variety of wigs, depending on my/its mood. I don’t care if you think that’s strange, it’s what I’ll need to do to ensure that I am the best parent I can be. Anyhow, I am here to tell you about what is being called an “epic baby hair scandal.” The very best kind of scandal there is!

The blog Mommy Shorts held a photo contest for “Most Epic Head of Baby Hair,” and the winner, Layla, dubbed “Baby Annette Funicello,” was accused by sore loser mommies on Facebook of wearing a wig.  Layla’s mother was outraged by the accusation and took to the social media site to defend her baby’s epic hair.

‘Marijuana Moms’ Say Smoking Weed Makes Them Better Parents

'Marijuana Moms' Say Smoking Weed Makes Them Better Parents

There’s a buzz happening in Beverly Hills over a group of women who call themselves the “Marijuana Moms.”

Many of the members of this loosely-knit group of pot-smoking parents smoke the wacky weed in order to relax or cope with chronic pain. In addition, they meet regularly for lavish dinners where the herb is a key ingredient in dishes like cannabis leaf salad, chicken fried in cannabis oil and marijuana milk shakes, Orange News UK reported.

Cheryl Shuman, a 53-year-old mother of two, said the group’s joint mission is to show that smoking marijuana makes them better parents and better wives. Read more on Huffington Post…
