Pregnancy Resources

Each situation in which a woman suspects she’s pregnant is different. Some women are excited, others shocked and still others worried. Regardless of how she feels once the pregnancy testing confirms a pregnancy, each woman needs to address her options as quickly as possible. Not every woman knows her options, though. Women are typically a resource for one another, sharing knowledge and advice about women’s health issues. When a woman doesn’t have a reliable resource network of her own, she’ll need to seek out her answers from other sources. The Internet Some people go straight to the world wide web for all their information needs. A quick search of the term ‘pregnancy’ loads a page full of medical references and articles that may be of help to the expectant mother. Some of the information, however, will not be of help. It’s easy to find yourself down a rabbit hole with regards to subjects on the web. Pregnancy-related topics like morning sickness have been cove

Travel Smart Jewelry Pieces

  Summer is here and that means travel season is upon us! Regardless of what your vacation may be, packing your favorite vacation staple pieces are a must. And while you may be tempted to flaunt your beautiful engagement ring, wedding ring, or that precious diamond ring to help elevate that vacation outfit,  you may want to reconsider packing it altogether.  Olivia Starling , founder and CEO of jewelry brand Starlette Galleria , highlights why you should consider swapping out your priceless and precious rings for a more affordable, stylish option for your next vacation. “Your wedding ring is easy to swap out and difficult to replace. When you travel with your wedding or engagement ring, you are risking loss, theft, and damage on one of your most prized possessions. Don't travel with your real wedding ring! Snag a high-quality, simulated diamond ring that is plated to prevent tarnishing and safe for sensitive skin,” says Olivia Starling. Fun fact about diamonds: Simulated diamond

Does Platelet-Rich Plasma Work for Hair Loss?

  Photo by  Akwice  from  Pexels Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment that can be used to accelerate healing in different areas of the body. It may also be effective in restoring hair growth, and is becoming a more popular treatment option for patients who are suffering from androgenetic alopecia, a condition that causes the hair follicles to shrink and is known as male pattern baldness in men. While PRP is a relatively new way of dealing with hair loss, there is growing scientific evidence to suggest that it is a successful treatment choice.  What is PRP? To get a solid understanding of how PRP works, it’s important to know the  role of platelets  in the healing process. Platelets are a main component in our blood along with the white and red blood cells.

Rugrats: The Complete Series

I am a huge Rugrats fan and followed the entire series from Episode 1 back in 1991.  I can’t believe it’s been 30 years since it first aired.  When my son was little we use to sit and watch Rugrats every day together.  He loved the antics of the brave and helpful Tommy Pickles and his nervous best friend Chuckie. I always got a good laugh from Tommy’s cousin Angelica, who was always plotting something with her trusty sidekick Cynthia doll.  Of course we can’t forget Susie, who always had the Rugrats backs and Kimi.  Of course we can’t forget adorable baby Dil Pickles. We always looked forward to the adventures  Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, and Spike would dream up.  We especially loved when Reptar, Tommy’s stuffed dinosaur, was involved.  My son had a stuffed Reptar that he would sit with while watching the show.  I was so excited when I was sent the newly released Rugrats, The Complete Series 26 disc set.  It includes all 9 seasons of the Rugrats and even has some extras including All G
