Labor of Love: Embracing Pregnancy & Motherhood with Style has started a new segment in this community where women can share their own stories of pregnancy, loss, labor and motherhood. In Labor of Love, we are reminded that our stories are each so unique in their own ways, yet entirely universal.

This week we share Chris Peterkin’s experience. With a successful medical practice in a small Ontario rural town, Chris is mama to four beautiful kids. They range in age from 4-10. She is best known to friends, family and patients for her exuberant energy, killer hostess skills, and passion for helping others! Here is her story of becoming a mom to her eldest son Aidan. Welcome Chris!
