Mother’s Intuition #cleverhaiti #spon

This Mother’s Day, I’m working with Clever Girls in support of Macy’s Heart of Haiti to shine a light on the “trade, not aid” program, which provides sustainable income to Haitian artisans struggling to rebuild their lives and support their families after the 2010 earthquake.

When I was invited to share an important mothering moment, I racked my brain for quite a while…until I realized that all I had to do was go back to the very, very beginning of my parenting journey.

June 2006.

I went to a regularly scheduled doctor’s appointment and discovered that, due to sudden onset severe preeclampsia, I was to be induced that evening…at 37 weeks.
