The Midwife Didn't Even Show

http://http://dreahlouis.blogspot.com/2014/03/the-midwife-didnt-even-show.html

My husband and I had the Grievance meeting in February regarding the death of our twin daughter Aminah. We showed up at a church in Webster Grooves, Missouri. At first I was wondering why the meeting was being held in a church but I went ahead with it and met the midwife in…

The Death Photographer

Standing in Aminah’s room the door slowly opened and a head peeked through. There

was a Blondie lady standing in between the door smiling asking permission to come in. As

I gave her permission to move forward, she stepped in and shut the large door behind her.

She introduced herself as the nurse photographer. She walked over to me with a camera

around her neck and a bright red folder. She pulled a chair for me to…

My Caesarean Section Birth Story

Your little sister, the entrepreneur

Before I begin today, I understand that there have been a lot of studies debunking the idea that birth order is something that influences people's behaviors.



But I am still fascinated by birth order and how often it works out. It may one day be designated as "the modern-day astrology," but I am…

Eating During Labor | Is it okay to eat during labor? New episode of BLABBERMOM |

Did your hospital or midwife allow eating during labor? Most of us MomCavers weren’t allowed to eat once we arrived at the hospital. The reasoning behind this (barbaric, in our opinion) practice is that in an emergency, general anesthesia may be used and any food eaten could aspirate into the lungs. While this may be a concern in very rare cases, most laboring moms are doing the most physically demanding work of their lives and could use some sustenance.

Last fall,…

Titles and Professions to Know When Pregnant

When you become pregnant everything is a little overwhelming, or way overwhelming! You are making sure your eating healthy, taking the right supplements, creating a birth plan, looking for a postpartum doula and so on!

While doing your research, you will come across a lot of professions and  titles that are important. It gets confusing. What’s the difference between a lactation consultant and a lactation educator? Which one do I need? Why?

Sharing the germs with your baby

My son was born via C-section. That definitely was not the way that I wanted to go, but that is the path we had to take. And at the end of the day, I had a healthy baby boy, so that is all that mattered to me. I did the skin-to-skin contact and breastfed him as soon as I was able because I had read so much research on those connections being important to a newborn.…

From the Mouths of Nurses: CHILDBIRTH 101

1327_765762693897_1869915688_n

Childbirth is this big black hole of unknown to an expecting Mom. You can read books, seek advice from women who have experienced it, and prepare in every way possible. Yet, no one can actually tell you what is going to happen in there. It's a crap shoot.

For me personally, this created some anxiety for me 1st pregnancy. I…

Video: Birth Control Options

16

Dear Diary,

After I gave birth, I thought about a lot of things--birth control options weren't one of them. I asked myself, what will I name my daughter? Who does she look like? Will my milk come in? What else do I need to buy? But birth control methods weren't on the list. Previously, I used the NuvaRing, which wasn't very effective. OK, who am I kidding? You gotta read the fine print…

Transitioning Mom: Where is my Epidural Now?

My Birth Story

A run to CVS to pick up Marlboro Reds and a pregnancy test. Yes, that's how it all started. I couldn't believe my eyes. Sitting in the toilet, starring at that faint pink line. It was so terrifying. It was unplanned, unexpected and I had no idea if I was ready. But really, who is ever ready…
