With the national rate for Cesarean surgery at 31.8 percent, more and more women are turning to natural birth in hopes of avoiding the regimentation and unnecessary medical interventions that can accompany a hospital birth. In addition to wanting to avoid a cesarean delivery, mothers are also concerned about the side effects of using epidurals and the many issues that come with receiving an epidural.

This is another super easy DIY that anyone can do. I’ve seen these driftwood mirrors at Pottery Barn and other stores online. I knew it would be easy and inexpensive to do.

This recipe is a delicious alternative to Shepherd’s Pie. I love how you get a blend of American and Mexican cuisine together to make a meal full of flavor! The salsa really makes this so juicy and delicious. If your family is anything like mine, they will return for seconds or request it to be on the menu more often.
