My Baby is Breech, now what?

By | baby care, Pregnancy | No Comments

During weeks 30-34 of pregnancy, we usually have an idea of how our baby is positioned. IF you find out your baby is sitting in your pelvis, your baby is what we call  “breech.”  You can start hypnosis, specialty yoga positions (with a pregnancy expert), you can seek the help of an acupuncturist and/or prenatal chiropractor to help with the movement of baby to hopefully turn your baby back to a head down position for birth.   BUT, we find most doctors simply want to “schedule” the cesarean.  Now you must deal with the confusion and anxiety of what to do and how to deal with the potential surgery after preparing your whole pregnancy for a normal, natural, vaginal birth. WAIT, there is another option. As…

By | Pregnancy | No Comments

There are all kinds of problems associated with providing care based on risk rather than on individual women. However, risk along with ‘due dates’ is here to stay, and women often want to know about risks. Risk is a very personal concept and different women will consider different risks to be significant to them. Everything we do in life involves risk. So when considering whether to do X or Y there is no ‘risk free’ option. All women can do is choose the option with the risks they are most willing to take. However, in order to make a decision women need adequate information about the risks involved in each option. If a health care provider fails to provide adequate information they could be faced with legal…

36. Few things in life are more comforting to a crying little girl than her father’s hand. Never forget this. 37. Introduce her to the swings at your local park. She’ll squeal for you to push her higher and faster. Her definition of “higher and faster” is probably not the same as yours. Keep that in mind. 38. When she’s a bit older, your definition of higher and faster will be a lot closer to hers. When that day comes, go ahead… give it all you’ve got. 39.
