Site Content; Disclaimer of Warranties; Limitation of Liability

Please note that my writing and the information posted on Mothernova stems from my personal experiences, personal opinion, and personal research; it should not be used as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment; or legal advice.

In a similar vein, even my interviews with specialists, doctors, and other professionals are conducted with a general audience in mind (and are date-sensitive) and are not to be taken as individual-specific advice or diagnoses. Every parent and child is different; each family is dealing with a host of separate and different issues, and should read my examples as content that is meant only for support.

Too, any reference to a commercial or non-commercial product, process, service, or company is based upon personal experience, and is not an absolute endorsement by Mothernova. Use these products at your own risk. Mothernova assumes no liability whatsoever for the use or contents of any product or service.

Please note that I’m now a book reviewer for Children’s Literature in Washington, D.C. This is an unpaid position. They provide books to review, which I get to keep, but the reviews are my own. You can find my reviews on their website. I post the reviews that are of interest to the parenting and food allergy communities under “On the Shelves” on my blog.
