KarithHey, Y'all I'm Karith, a Texas-raised bi-coastal transplant and I am on way to becoming a first-time mommy. I am also a 30-something professional stand-up comedian, author and speaker who resides in both NYC and LA. I performs on each coast and many of the states in between. I recently got married and even more recently found out that we were pregnant. Yes, it’s a “Honeymoon Baby”! So, now, because of my occupation I have to have fun, make fun, and laugh my way through this major event in my life. I want all of you who can relate to have a laugh too and if all goes well- something pretty fantastic- aside from my first child will come out of this.

Me and My Geriatric Pregnancy…REALLY?!

As a comedian, I’m sensitive, that’s part of what makes me so good at my “art”. That is what comedians do, we find humor in pain. But as sensitive as I am, I’m not that easily offended especially when something is done or said with humor as the intention. One of my life rules is: All is…

Meconium, Pitocin and Perineums OH MY?!!

Meconium, Pitocin, and perineum should ALL be SAT words as far as I’m concerned. Talk about words I hadn’t given thought to much less ever heard before I got knocked up.

Apparently Midwife is a BAD Word…

I say this because as soon as I told my doctor that I had a midwife and was planning to use her. She gave me an attitude like I’d just dropped the C-bomb in her office. My doctor’s demeanor completely changed; she went from this super-friendly lady I’d met 6 months ago to Omarosa. She…
