If you don’t know the writings of Courtney Clark Kendrick, aka cjane, then I have to ask what rock you’ve been living under. She writes 3 blogs, but her most famous is cjane: Enjoy It. I’ve been a loyal reader for over a year and a half and it is her blog that inspired me to take mine to the next level of writing. She’s probably been THE most influential blogger for me.
As Courtney is preparing for the birth of her second child any day now, she decided to take the week off writing and instead asked several of the men in her life to guest post on a variety of birth/pregnancy-related topics. They range from humorous to poignant. So yes, I’m highlighting a blogger but actually linking to posts by other people. Courtney’s brother, Christopher Clark, kicked off the week with Taking Care of Your Wife in Labor. Tuesday brought Supporting Your Wife Through Adoption by Jeremy “MD” Kendrick. Next came a post by Courtney’s friend Waldo Galan: Taking Care of Your Wife Through Infertility. Thursday was Supporting Your Wife in the Grieving Process by Darin Eckton. Last but not least is Jim Rowberry’s essay, How to Love Your Wife During the Postpartum Phase.
(And if you’ve got extra time on your hands, check out my very favorite post of hers, about breastfeeding and the last time she nursed her son: Mammorial Day Part 2.)
