2020 Year in Review
Family-Ways

2y ago
Happy New Year!! Congratulations to all of us for making it through this year! This year has been odd, to say the least, and we've been in a place of reflection for a long time. This is another reflective post -- as this year comes to a close, I want to take one more moment to focus on some of the highlights of this unbelievable year. But first, story time: The day after Christmas, full of socially-distanced holiday cheer, my daughter and I were dancing in the living room when, for no discernible reason, I fell directly onto my own face. She followed immediately thereafter and landed bottom-d ..read more

Good news, folks. We made it through April. It might have been a wild and crazy mess of a month (it certainly was for me!), but now we're in May, and it seems like the world is taking a collective deep breath and making plans for a new way forward. We still have no idea what the next few months are going to look like, and we're rewriting the rules as we go. But in all that chaos, there's a lot of hidden opportunity. Here are a few of the amazing opportunities that have evolved over the last month: We're now able to offer sliding-scale services for families facing financial hardship. We've se ..read more

These are strange and unexpected times we're living in. I know everyone is struggling, and our collective stress is at its max. But I want to tell you about some things that are making me happy right now: We have the privilege of living with the technology and other tools that allow us to stay connected... even remotely. We are several months into this worldwide pandemic, meaning we already have quite a bit of knowledge about how to manage it. We might not be making all the right decisions all of the time, but at least we're not starting from zero. This is a respiratory virus, not a gastroin ..read more

Well, March has certainly been an exciting month already... and we're not even two weeks in! For those who have been following the unfolding plumbing saga of our Family Ways office, I am delighted to announce that we are almost back in working order! We hope to be fully operable by next Monday... just in time to limit our office use as part of our ongoing effort to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The CDC has issued Frequently Asked Questions and Answers for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and Pregnancy. At this time, we do not believe that our doulas or our clients are at si ..read more

New Year, New... Plumbing?

2y ago
I've never been one to make New Year's resolutions -- if you know me, you know that I stay pretty well resolved all year long. Nevertheless, I had planned to start the year with a pop and an announcement of the many great things on our horizon! We have changes to our team, changes to our offerings, and plans for making our services even more accessible to our community as a whole! I've been looking forward to announcing these changes for months! Trust me, they're still coming. But our progress has been momentarily slowed by a minor plumbing catastrophe in our office. Long story short: cast ir ..read more
