ReBirthing Mother Nature’s

Undisturbed Intent

When we identify with the natural process of love and the divinity of childbirth, we connect with the realization of our social powers. We can bring value to the collective communal aspects of our voices. What you believe is what becomes, and if you make love to ALL that you do… You produce the hottest flame… That is pure blue-violet (purple) in hue. Understanding each and everyone of us began as a simple blood clot. Least we understand the beauty of our purpose is to become free in the will of our minds and disciplined within the yearnings of our hearts. This is how we Birth Like A BOSS. This is how we give birth to Gods.

Georgia Can Change The World of Childbirth

There Is No Magic Pill… Well What Is Magic Anyway?

The rates were included in a series of health statistics presented at a recent Department of Public Health board meeting.

Infant mortality is the number of infants dying before reaching their first birthday. Maternal mortality, defined by the World Health Organization, is the number of women who die during pregnancy and childbirth.

All Southeastern states have seen a decline in infant mortality, said Dr. Mitch Rodriguez, a Macon neonatologist and Public Health board member, in a presentation to the board.

Georgia’s rate dropped from 8.4 infant deaths per 1,000 live births from 2002 to 2006 to 7.3 deaths during the 2007-2011 period. That translates to more than 550 fewer infant deaths during the most recent period, he said.

“There is no magic pill to solve the problem,” Rodriguez said.

But then we have this…

Georgia Counties w: NO OB Services

Yet the state is pursuing several initiatives to help lower the rate, including a task force, community programs, and recognizing “baby-friendly” hospitals that promote breastfeeding.

The state has also lowered its premature birth rate by 17.7 percent from 2007 to 2011, Rodriguez said. Preterm birth is the leading cause of newborn death….

UNNATURAL CAUSES

Black Babies Here and Now

When you think about the reason behind the infant mortality rate within the African American population you have to dig deep into the historical facts of our genetic coding in order to identify with why it is so important to know our history, thus giving us a chance to change our future. Yes indeed it hard to survive being Black in America. Even though we strive for better living conditions, better education, better social status, we are still rated the highest in maternal and infant death. This my friend is unnatural to the progression of human life. This my friend is a problem.

Get The Facts About Successful Breastfeeding

You Can’t Listen To Everybody

While cruising the web and checking my email, I came across a crazy article, which I was #279 to give it a thumbs down, and I am happy I did for several reasons.

One, as a successful breastfeeding mom, advocate, and self-directed educator, it is quite disturbing to see information floating around regarding breastfeeding that is negatively displayed. The second reason is because, my favorite numbers are 2, 7, and 9 and when they are in sequence like that, they are symbolic to me.

The number (9) is symbolic to woman and childbirth. I have seen breastfeeding from every angle, but it makes me wonder if more women are unsuccessful because they are listening to misinformation or don’t have a positive visual. This is  that is totally bias and creating a wider gap in the push for more women to jump on Mother Nature’s lactating bandwagon. I don’t ever want mothers to feel discouraged from providing her baby… and herself with the best possible outcomes that come exclusively from breastfeeding.

So I want you to go to the article and check it out for yourself. No matter what, yeah we can identify with some of the information, but this should not be the focus. As a blogger, this is a bad look for those who are considering breastfeeding for the first time. I don’t want moms to take this information and use it as supported facts because, even though these are some of the experiences “breastfeeding moms” encounter. It is in no way “hateful.” Challenging yes, but there are plenty of things to discuss more openly about breastfeeding that should bear much more concern.

The art of breastfeeding is just that. I see it as Mother Nature’s way of helping women understand the alchemy of coming into motherhood.  There are so many angles that we could address breastfeeding from a positive perspective. Yet it is still revered as this painful, arduous, and even embarrassing for some, in the event of motherhood.

Why is that I ask? People are more comfortable watching a love scene on television, rather than seeing a woman nurse her baby. Mind you they associate the act with sexual behaviors because, they do not have the right information. So they confuse mothering a baby, with jaded and perverse lenses.

And I have heard all kinds of stories while on my own journey. Some were nice, others not so nice 😦 . The saddest part is when it comes from your loved ones. Often their lack of understanding or education about the benefits of breastfeeding leads them to make indifferent comments. This is when you have to know that you can’t listen to everybody. If I would have listened to the naysayers, then I would not have continued nursing my children until they were just about 2-years. I would have stopped at 6-weeks.

Now ask me was it an adjustment? Yes! Was it painful in the beginning? Yes. But what is pain? Weakness leaving the body. It is really all about perspective. When we identify with something in a way that only we understand it, then we cancel out the opportunity to become more open and receptive to new discoveries about ourselves. And breastfeeding is the next best way to self discovery other than marriage and childbirth.

So here are (9) ways to be encouraged by breastfeeding that most will not tell you.

  • Breastfeeding your baby takes commitment and determination. Breastfeeding women need to maintain a nutritious, well-balanced diet. Moms must remember she is still eating for two. Just be mindful. No fancy diet regimens needed.
  • If applicable incorporate father/partner time with the baby. This is a sure way to give yourself breaks in between feedings, especially new moms. Fathers can lay and cuddle during feedings to maintain active bonding time with mother and baby.
  • Many mothers who choose to nurse their babies also work or go to school, and they do this successfully. The benefit of breastfeeding also builds up a babies immunity so mom does not have to take off as much because, formula-fed babies catch colds, earaches, intestinal upsets, and other illnesses more easily. Exclusive breastfeeding has also been noted to aid in the reduction of the infant mortality rate.
  • For the woman who has to breastfeed in public, there are many techniques that one can learn to be modest during feeding times. Some of these are even fashion forward.
  • Most new moms fear that they are not producing enough milk right after the baby is born. And she is right. Because she is not producing milk, she is producing colostrum. Colostrum contains the most valuable nutrients and immunizing agents, and it is all a baby needs until mature milk begins to be produced. This is roughly about 72 hours after the baby is born. So KEEP Nursing! The longer the better… At least 18-24 months.
  • Don’t worry about losing the baby weight so quickly. On an average a woman burns 300-500 calories a day breastfeeding. This is just enough to gradually lose weight in a healthy way that still supports your baby’s nutritional needs.
  • Women who have cesarean births can breastfeed just like women who birth vaginally. It is important to know the ideal breastfeeding positions to keep pressure off the incision site. This can also be soothing to women who had to have an emergency or unplanned C-section to reconnect with the bonding element of childbirth.
  • The baby will let you know if he/she/they are not getting enough milk. Look for signs of hunger, growth activity, how alert baby is, and how many diapers you go through. (This is where the value of cloth diapering comes in, but that’s a whole different post).
  • Breastfeeding is just as good for the mom as it is for the baby. Like, breastfeeding reduces postpartum bleeding and may also reduce the risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer.

Well here it is… I hope that this helps someone to be encouraged and keep up the good work of nursing your baby. Don’t listen to negative information and stay focused on the goal. You are part of the solution.
