Heathers headI’m Heather: Wife, Mom, Author and Runner.  Also, I’m a board certified OB/GYN working full time in Franklin, TN. A few years back I started a blog with my friend Jessica called The Pregnancy Companion and we were blessed to write a book by the same name. However, after 3 years of only writing about pregnancy, I realized I had other topics to explore. I currently write for the WebMD Women’s Health Blog and am also a contributing writer for Grace for Moms & Mothers in Medicine. This is my space to write about whatever strikes my fancy, which is mainly running, motherhood and birthing babies.

I love (in no particular order): birthing babies, U2, Venice, chocolate, long runs, Counting Crows, Jesus, Seattle in July, laughing so hard I cry, a nice red zin, coffee, my husband and the 2 minutes a day when my boys play together nicely before they start fighting.

I hate meetings, cotton balls, road trips and classic rock.
