I am SO excited to be joining Frisco Area Moms! Since becoming a mom four years ago, I wanted to be a part of a community of incredible, strong, and supportive moms and I have definitely found that group within Frisco Area Moms! The community that supports FAM is wonderful and I can’t wait to share this journey of mommyhood with each and every one of you!  I am looking forward to meeting as many moms in our community as possible and making new friends along the way!

Homeschooling with Local Momma, Laura Stiller

Homeschooling with Local Momma, Laura Stiller

There are as many ways to homeschool as there are ways to raise children. Find the freedom to unashamedly do what works for you. That being said, here are a few steps I would recommend for getting started and a few resources to help you along your way. 

Why Are Black Moms More Likely to Die During Pregnancy & Childbirth?

Why Are Black Moms More Likely to Die During Pregnancy & Childbirth?

As moms, pregnancy and childbirth is a magical and also, complicated time. We look forward to meeting our child, but also want to be sure we’re making the best decisions, along with our healthcare provider,  to get them here as safely as possible. Black moms (as well as American Indian and Alaskan Native) also face a greater risk for themselves; they are 2 to 3 times as likely to die from pregnancy related causes as white moms. In an effort to understand this important issue, we reached out to one of the top experts on this subject, Dr. Alicia D. Bonaparte, an Associate Professor of Sociology at Pitzer College and co-editor of the anthology, Birthing Justice: Black Women, Pregnancy, and Childbirth.

A Black Mother’s Cry: An Essay by Sara Hood

A Black Mother’s Cry: An Essay by Sara Hood

Where do we go from here? What’s the solution? Why did it take this particular moment in time for everyone to wake up? Did the [COVID-19] pandemic and our lack of movement or distractions result in forcing everyone to pay attention to what we have been screaming for 400 years? As someone who’s a master of my emotions and knows for the most part how to re-center and refocus this week—my emotions have been out of control. I am mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually exhausted.
