In early 2019, Victoria’s daughter was born with a cleft lip without having any common risk factors or genetic link.

When a baby arrives in our world, we coo and hum and sing and sway. Babies sing before they speak and dance before they walk. Continue reading

What is Thrush?

New Moms ask us this question daily. Thrush is a yeast infection caused by an overgrowth of the organism Candida Albicans, which is the same yeast organism that causes vaginal yeast infections.While it's called an “infection”, it’s really an “overgrowth” of Candida, a normal part of the flora found on skin.
