    Spring is baby season in Portland! While I love the flowering trees, those growing bellies make me smile just as big. Not sure why Portland has this seasonal baby boom, but I am always glad to see it happen. As we learn that the birth rate has gone down several years in a row, it

    is always reassuring to see that families do want to continue this parenting journey in this baby-friendly city.

    I have the privilege of editing this years Baby Issue once again, and I am so excited about what we have to offer you this May. I anticipate this issue all year long, and have been collecting ideas for months on what articles would mean the most to new and expectant parents. Teaching prenatal couples, seeing couples in their home after they welcome their baby, and then meeting with new moms every week facilitating moms groups gives me this precious window into the lives of newborn families. I have tried to include information I think would benefit families searching for great local products and services, and I hope this magazine will serve as a resource to make those connections.

    This issue features local experts on all things baby related. Childbirth educators will share tips on staying strong after baby arrives and review a new parenting book for us, we will be introduced to a brand new movement and education center, and a local store will contrast the difference in shopping at big box stores vs. local mom and pop retailers (with lots of heart!). We have a recipe to nurture a new family, soothing tips for fussy babies, and we will introduce you to placenta medicine (really not that gross)!

    Having a whole new reason to celebrate Mothers Day can be very exciting, but I always want to consider those who have lost their mothers or have lost babies, and those who are still waiting for their little miracle to arrive, as it can be a bittersweet time of year for them.

    If you are past the baby having stage of your life, please share this magazine with someone you know who is welcoming a new little onewe hope it will enrich their journey!
