Sisters and Eggs

Starting a family was never really my thing. I grew up in Central Florida, to a single mom with three daughters. My dad left us when my mom was pregnant with my little sister, and we haven’t heard from him since. My mom remarried when I was 8 years old. It was quite the adjustment, but seeing my mom max out her credit cards, get kicked out of housing, and crying daily was dreadful. This couldn’t be life. My stepdad is great. Scratch that, he’s my dad – the only one I’ve ever had. Upon my mom marrying, we all...

Wealth Reversal

Because every woman has her own journey. Growing up, we lived in a $50 million dollar NYC Townhouse. Yes, right in the middle of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. I really had the life everyone around me wanted. Or so they thought they did. Money was never a thing; I wasn’t living in a crammed 700 sq foot space. I traveled the world; and with wealth, everything was right at my fingertips. Yachts, caviar, jewels, shopping, endless assistance. Mom and dad had a weird relationship. The type of relationship where the world had not the slightest idea about what is happening—ever....

Totally Normal - I think?

Because every woman has her own journey. For some odd and very random reason, I always thought I would be a completely unhappy pregnant woman.

Blood pressures were always fine, urine samples perfect, very mild nausea, and I attended all my classes at the Prenatal Yoga Center in my Upper West Side neighborhood of NYC. Towards the end, all was dandy until I went past my due date, and...

Imperfectly Perfect

Because every woman has her own journey. I’d be lying if I said my life hasn’t always been perfect. I was raised in Savannah, Georgia and the daughter of a surgeon and elementary school teacher. My sister and I always had a super close friendship and moved to the west coast for college together. At age 20, I started dating the athlete who would later become my dreamy husband. After our big Southern wedding in Spring of 2013, my husband and I embarked on a journey to parenthood- a journey that began when my husband and I were 24 years...

Yuh Cyah Make Love on Hungry Belly

Because every woman has her own journey. I’m from Trinidad. My grandparents, parents, and I were all born in Trinidad, but my ancestors are from India. Don’t speak Hindi, have never been to India, but feel Indian, but also extremely Caribbean—it’s just a thing. My parents moved to New Jersey when I was 2 years old, but we’ve been in the USA ever since. I went to a local college, where I met my husband, also Indo-Trinidadian. As an only daughter of four children, my parents hosted a big, fat Indian wedding in New Jersey. It was the type of...
