Fitness During Pregnancy

As a childbirth educator and doula, I have always maintained a holistic mind frame of the human body and its functions. When I am teaching a childbirth education class or attending a birth as a doula, I am always amazed at how every function of our bodies has a purpose. During my classes, I work hard to convey how body and mind work together in both pregnancy and birth. Maintenance and preparation for this dual relationship between mind and body is just as vital.

Diapers: More Than Stink

It is easy to think of diaper changing as the stinky work that nobody wants to do. True, there are some uncomfortable moments and some less than fragrant smells, but these few minutes with your baby can tell a person more than you might consider. Diapers are an excellent barometer of the quality of feeding for breastfeeding mothers and the perfect chance for bonding. The kind of diapers used are not important when it comes to checking feedings or bonding. The type of diaper used is important when cost, time and the environment are considered.  

Matters of the Heart: Coronary Artery Events in Women

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), heart disease is the number one killer of women, accounting for one in every five female deaths. According to the American Heart Association (AHA) Go Red for Woman campaign, one out of three deaths in women is related to either a heart attack or stroke. These are frightening statistics! It is important to familiarize yourself with the signs and symptoms of heart disease and how they differ between men and women.
