Since this is a new section on my blog, I’ll be updating it in the coming weeks. I’ll place popular posts that readers often search for, as well as answer common questions that I receive on a daily basis, over on my GMMDI Instagram account. If a post answers a question, I’ll link to that. Please let me know if you have any questions, and if there are any special posts you’d like me to add to this section, for easy reference.
Placenta encapsulation – After dealing with Postpartum Depression after my first two children were born, and taking prescription antidepressants, I decided to try a different route after the birth of my third child, and encapsulated my placenta.

So I don’t feed my kids fast food chicken nuggets or the frozen ones you get in a 50 lb bag, but I do make them these baked nuggets, and they claim they’re better than McDonald’s.
