Due date and weeks pregnant numbers. We check if the baby is moving by kick counts. We assess the progression of labor by numbers for dilation, effacement and station. Now there are [...]

Magazine article, “12 Things Successful People Do Before Breakfast.” The article reflects a certain set of ideas that are dominant in our culture: productivity = doing more successful people = people with big titles and high powered careers being more productive => being [...]
