Lost art of Postpartum Care and how it's effecting our families

I couldn't love this article any more than I do! This is why Natural Birthworks​ is bringing back the ancient art of womanly care with belly binding, sacred steams, mayan massages and more support for the postpartum mom.
Women in the U.S. do not support, recognize or aren't given the necessary postpartum time they need and deserve. To me, offering help and support after birth is necessary to ensure a strong mother, and healthy family.

Homebirth safe? Why yes, yes they are

Homebirth is safe for low-risk women. This is something we've known all along. Makes sense right? Birth isn't an emergency even though, yes, emergencies can happen. I mean I can walk out my door and a car hits me, emergency! However, I'm not going to change the severity level of walking. When I walk it's low-risk, same with pregnancy and birth.

This article is a great read for those wanting to know their options and the true safety of them.

5 overused things in the NICU and when to pass on them

NICU is a scary place when your baby has to be there. Thank god we have help like that for children who need it, but are we over doing it when it comes to medications and tests? Here are 5 things you may want to pass on:

Ancient postpartum traditions, and why we did them

India.png

Love this and wished all women would remember the 6 week postpartum period is for them to rest for a REASON!! I was lucky that my mom, aunt, and cousins came to do some of these things but more on the greek tradition line wink emoticon “My great great grandmothers and their descendants lived up to the ripe old age of 90 and above, despite giving birth to over 10 children. They were free of the usualcomplaints of rheumatism, arthritis, backaches, joint pains etc., because they strictlyfollowed the traditional confinementpractices...so my mother said and I aminclined to believe that because some of thewomen I know from my generation onwards, have been riddled with chronic back, jointand pelvic ailments, from the time their kidswere still in preschool, on account of alackadaisical attitude and skepticism towardsancient norms and practices. Most of their current health issues can be traced back to the lack of proper care during the postpartum period, not realizing that the first six weeks after childbirth is a pivotal phase in a woman's life, as medical science agree that it takes minimum six weeks for a woman to recover mentally and physically.”

The trend to Homebirths, or the rebirth

I remember my first "catch" in Midwifery school was an ER doctor at the local hospital. I was so nervous, but she was awesome and I learned a lot listening to her story. http://jennifermargulis.net/blog/2014/09/why-doctors-nurses-and-other-medical-professionals-are-choosing-to-birth-at-home/
