H0N9VC26H9Thanksgiving weekend is upon us and it’s my very favourite holiday! I love everything about Thanksgiving – the delicious food enjoyed with family, the crisp autumn weather and of course the act of consciously giving thanks for abundance.

I experienced a long and complicated labour that ended with a Cesarean section. This meant that in addition to the new demands of breast feeding and caring for an infant I was also recovering from major abdominal surgery.
