Summer Editor's Letter
By any other name would smell as sweet.”
Romeo and Juliet
For the past 12 years, the magazine that you are reading has gone by the name KC Baby. While it’s a good name and has been a good fit, we’ve decided a little name change is in order to better reflect the articles and editorial focus of this publication. So—drum roll, please—I introduce to you KC Baby & Maternity. While the inside of the magazine stays the same, the new name let’s everyone know that we are the ONLY magazine in Kansas City for expectant and new moms.
Speaking of expectant moms, this issue of KC Baby & Maternity is the Pregnancy Decision issue. So many things to think about when pregnant, and we’re here to help! If you are pregnant or have had a baby, you’ve probably heard of the “What to Expect” series. Olathe mom Melissa Bellach takes a fun twist on that series with her “What I DIDN’T Expect” article. One thing I didn’t expect while pregnant was that my pregnancy was an open invitation for comments and advice from strangers. I did my best to nod in appreciation of whatever nugget they were sharing, but most of the time I just wanted to be left alone. What about you? What was the most unexpected part of your pregnancy? See if it made the list.
It’s no secret that summer is my favorite season. If you have a new little one and this is his or her first summer, check out Kristina Light’s article. So many terrific ideas on things to do with Baby to make this first summer memorable. Check it out and get started making memories today!
Happy summer, Kansas City!
