New Birth Choices Book!

New Birth Choices Book!

We strongly believe in the value of well-rounded prenatal education. One of the first resources we developed was a book called Thoughtful Decisions. It provided a tool to help parents understand their options, identify their preferences, and communicate positively with their birth team. We have woven elements of this book into our other resources and use a plum symbol in our books to remind parents of important topics or questions to consider to make thoughtful decisions about birth.

Help for Postpartum Depression and Anxiety

Help for Postpartum Depression and Anxiety

The incredible physical and emotional changes that a mother experiences after the birth of her baby, whether her first or her fifth, simply cannot be overstated. Birthing and caring for a newborn is one of the most profound and intense experiences of her life and the effects are wide-ranging and unique to every mom. There is always an adjustment period that involves hormonal shifts and often nights with little sleep, but when normal steps of recovery become overshadowed by postpartum depression and anxiety, it is time to seek help, and for others to let her know she is not alone.

Planning Your VBAC (Part 1 of 2)

Step 1: Know the Facts

What is a VBAC? 
A Vaginal Birth After Cesarean. Mothers with one low transverse uterine scar have, on average, a 60-80% success rate with a trial of labor after cesarean (TOLAC) and VBAC birth, which means the vast majority of mothers who want to have a vaginal birth after having had a c-section will be able to do so.

What the ACOG opinion about interventions means for mothers and babies

It is important that care for mothers and babies during labor and birth reflects the most up-to-date evidence, especially when it comes to deciding when and how to use medical interventions. In February 2017, the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) issued a new committee opinion about how interventions should and should not be used during labor. These recommendations, if consistently put into practice by care providers, will have wide-ranging benefits and lead to positive outcomes and positive birth experiences for many women and their babies.
