Letter from the Editor: Welcoming a New Baby

Our first summer together

For the best reason, this summer presents new and exciting changes for my family. On June 12, me and my husband, Noah, were blessed with our first born, a daughter, Amelia. Nothing could have prepared me for the moments filled with love and excitement which I felt when she arrived.  Despite so much to learn, we are looking forward to taking on our first summer as a family of three.  

The days leading up to Amelia’s arrival were long and filled with preparing our “nest.” One of the tasks I wanted to finish before she was born was to select items to pack in a bag for my trip to the hospital. In this issue, our Maternity and Baby Guide, a professional midwife along with local moms share advice on the most useful items to place in that overnight bag.  We include and article by an expert about how to identify postpartum anxiety and depression.  We also provide a Back to School Guide for parents with school aged kids with tips and tricks for preparing for the school year. 

Check out the Winners of our 2023 Family Favorites! where we celebrate and report your selections of local businesses and service providers that Toledo Parent readers have identified as their “Favorites”.  These results comprise a  list of quality resources recommended and curated by the loyal fans and readers of Toledo Parent!.

Remember, you can always access online exclusive content and stories from past publications by visiting toledoparent.com. 

Enjoy this beautiful summer!
