My innevitable return to our very first blog…

Even though my blogging on our first ever family blog came to pretty much a screeching halt once River actually arrived, I have returned. Yet this time I come armed and prepared with some amazing tips, advice, stories and products to share with the world. Some of my blog readers are well aware of what became of the Janke family once we became pregnant, however there are many that have no clue. So the following short summary is for those new blog viewers 🙂

When I became pregnant with River (our first and so far only child) I was super disappointed at the lack of GOOD information on the net. The so called pregnancy and parenting sites that where around didn’t speak to the desired parenting information I was looking for. I knew there had to be a better place for moms-to-be like me to go, but where? Thus became The Healthy Belly! A pregnancy and child development website for positive and organic minded parents! It’s been over two years since the inception of The Healthy Belly and I couldn’t be more proud of our baby (both of them) 😉

The Healthy Belly has grown into an entire family of sites and we have a tremendous amount of support from some really great specialist. On our site you will find experts in all areas. Dr. Bob Sears contributes articles, videos and some really educational interviews that we’ve covered with our own webisode production HBTV!  Along with providing a complete child development timeline from in utero through age three you can follow along with your childs growth through our very own podcast series on HB Radio.

As we grow we have so many plans for iphone and facebook apps and I would love nothing more than to hear from real moms like yourself! If you’re a social networking mamma who likes to stay connected in an online social media environment then our most recent project Dooddles is a must see!  Dooddles came about when we saw how popular our Pregnancy site was becoming and realized what a perfect environment it was creating to keep family and friends in contact with what was going on with our new addition!  Dooddles is a family-safe social network that allows you the parent to control who accesses your child’s profile.  So unlike facebook your dooddles profile is just about your child.  You can track growth, development, share pics and video as well as make buddies with others in your area.  Set in a similar social networking environment dooddles is easy to use and understand.

Thanks for taking the time to read up on my blog and follow the passion that parenting has brought me!

    Amber –
    So glad that you are BACK!!!!!! I visited and – they are fabulous! I understand why you are proud! So much great information in one place! And Dooddles – a Social Networking spot for kids! Genius! I have been concerned about all the baby pictures on FB and other sites – I like the idea of building a more intimate space to share pictures, videos and milestones with family and friends – not the entire world! Privacy is important – and it seems like it is getting much harder to achieve. Thanks for putting family first!
