You all know that my heart beats for BLACK WOMEN. I'm serious. I mean it beats for a lot of things but my sisters mean so much to me. @abide_women is an organization I helped co-found and an organization that is built to center black women as we fight to reduce infant and maternal mortality, low birth weight babies and preterm birth. South Dallas needs and easy access clinic where no woman will ever be turned away regardless of her ability to pay. Did you know that according to the Dallas Health Assessment only 30% of women in Dallas County receive prenatal care in their 1st trimester? Did you know that black women die at 3-4x the rate of white women due to childbirth related causes? Did you know that black babies 2-3x less likely to make it to their 1st birthday. How about this. Did you know that we can change these numbers by offering culturally competent, compassionate, judgment free care? South Dallas needs support. Abide Women's Health Services needs your help to make the impossible....possible. Link in bio. #NTXGIVINGDAY #maternalhealth #infanthealth #easyaccessclinic

I often talk about the power of relationships. Relationships are transferable and span across decades. We are honored and blessed to have a relationship with Dr. Patrice Harold (💖💚), our Medical Director. She's timely and consistent about helping us meet the needs of mamas and babies in our charge. This is one of many ways we address access. #socialdeterminantsofhealth #sdoh #access #maternalhealthmatters #maternalhealth #infanthealth #infantmortality #babies #pregnant #pregnancy #obgyn #breastfeeding #mommysmagicmilk #socialentrepreneurship #AKA #AKA1908 #AKAARODetroit @pharold14

👏👑🤱🍼 Way to go San Fran!!! 🍼 When SF @supervisor_katy_tang introduced the city’s Lactation Ordinance expanding requirements to support new moms in the workplace, the city became the leader in requiring workplace lactation facilities. 🍼 So, who’s moving to #SF with us??!! 👑🤱🍼 #bill937 #katytang #CaliforniaSenate #GovernorBrown #GovernorJerryBrown #pumpingatwork #pumpingatworkishard #pumpingatworkproblems #breastfeeding #breastfeedingproblems #pumpingmomsunite #breastfeedingmomsunite #momlife #keeppumping #momlifeisthebestlife #workplacelactationrights #knowyourrights #yourrightsatwork #womenshealth #infanthealth #bornintheusa

Lying here in my gynecologist office, a timely paper helped me pass the time... a paper published by Obstetrics & Gynecology has shown an increased morbidity risk to infants whose mothers were obese with no other risk factors. Have you ever thought, I’ll lose the weight after I’m done having babies? Make you first parenting choice and Let @brantnutritionsolutions help you break down the barriers today. #noexcuses #anytimeisagoodtime #weightloss #infant #infanthealth #pregnancy #pregnancyhealth #getthefacts #registereddietitian #privatedietitian #dietitian #dietitiansofinstagram #brantford
Women and children are in desperate need of access and education over maternal/infant care. Our maternal and infant mortality rates in Texas are horrific, especially for minority groups (black, latinx, LGBTQ). I’m a firm believer in not just being open to learning more, but finding ways to help. It takes a village to create change. So how can you help this ever increasing issue of poor maternal and infant health outcomes? 👉🏽 give time as a volunteer. I promise every non-profit would be happy with whatever time you’re able to provide. 👉🏽 giving finances (when able to) even if it’s just $5. I know of organizations that survived and made an impact solely off of reoccurring $5 donations. Every penny adds up and helps. 👉🏽 simply share the message. Educate and inform others. If no one knows or understands there is a problem, there is no correcting it. TODAY is #NorthTexasGivingDay and any donation you make greatly impacts non-profits in our state. Help us @rebirthequity make a difference in lives across Texas. Your tax deductible donation could help us qualify for bonus funds so your dollar could easily be multiplied! Any donation of $25+ will also receive a limited edition Re+Birth Equity Alliance t-shirt, so you can continue to spread the message AND be fashionable! 🙌🏽 😖 can’t donate funds? SHARE THIS MESSAGE AND OUR PAGE! Know that there is power in awareness! We thank you in advance for your support in helping us make an impact for marginalized communities! ❤️ #birth #maternalhealth #infanthealth #bethechange #youcanhelp #justdoit

We are so pleased to announce our partnership with Mrs Chioma Akpotha, who is one of the most recognized movie stars in Nigeria. She has a heart for maternal and child health and we are absolutely excited for what the future holds. __ Regrann from @chiomakpotha - It gives me great pleasure to announce my involvement with the Audrey Pack, a platform focused on the reduction of maternal and child mortality and driven to achieve the Millennium development Goals (MDG) 4 & 5 , set by the United Nations As a mother, it hurts to know that about 99 percent of women who die in pregnancy and childbirth are from developing countries - 99%! Millions of women and girls, especially the poor, lack access to basic reproductive health services. And as Audrey Pack’s ambassador, I stand firmly with their cause of making sure every mother has access and correct information to healthcare. Every woman and adolescent girl needs the information, social support and health services for health, especially family planning. The Audrey Pack is focused on the reduction of maternal and child mortalioty by Increasing ante-natal and immunization uptake using incentives. Incentives in the form of our free pack. The pack contains products from different FMCG companies relating to what a mum requires while she is pregnant and when she delivers #maternity #Nigeria #healthcare #theaudreypack #chiomaakpotha #maternalhealth #infanthealth #mdg4 #mdg5 @theaudreypack2 @mumsatworkng @lilianodim - #regrann

The new school year has started and is going! Whether your little one is starting school for the very first time or they’re going back into a new class, it can be both exciting and nerve wracking. Children can be sensitive to their emotions and if they’re worried about school, it can mean upset tummies and tears. Settle their first-day-back nerves by talking to them about the school routine and answering all their questions.

FACT: babies under 1 year old should not eat honey. 👶🏽🐝! It's not because honey is toxic! Though honey can contain the bacteria Clostridium botulinum, which causes Botulism and the issue is that baby's still-developing immune system is not ready or able to handle this. Exposure can result in serious and life-threatening illness! Older children and adults can consume small amounts of this with little effect. And no, eating honey will not improve yoursnor your childs or your immune system function, another common myth. Avoid honey for baby...don't worry about missing sweetness in their foods, they will most definitely find it as children 😂🤣😅 * * * #vibrantnutrition #nutrition #childnutrition #babynutrition #evidencebased #foodsafety #nohoneyforbabies #honey #sweeteners #babyfood #babyeats #feedingyourbaby #feedingyourchild #parenting #mostaskedquestion #infantfeeding #infanthealth #littleones #momlife #startingsolids #blw #healthybaby #healthychildren #dietitian #dietitianapproved #registereddietitian #infantnutrition #foodfacts #knowyourfood #infantbotulism

Kealohalani had her 5 month cardiologist appointment today❤️ . Before she was born, the doctors had found a small dot on her heart during an ultrasound. So once she was born we took her to the cardiologist to find out she had what is called, Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) . This is where a hole in the part of the septum separates the atria and allows oxygen-rich blood from the left atrium to flow into the right atrium instead of flowing into the left ventricle as it should. This means that oxygen-rich blood gets pumped back to the lungs, where it has just been, instead of going to the body. For the past 5 months she had to be elevated when sleeping and changing. Mind you, it’s been a little struggle lately since she’s all about rolling and almost crawling 🙃 . With this said—today we found out that Kealohalani no longer has ASD. The hole has closed on its own and her next cardiologist check up is in 3 years! . I thank God everyday for our little blessing and I continue to pray that her little heart stays strong & healthy. #godisgreat #atrialseptaldefect #congenitalheartdefect
September is Infant Mortality Awareness Month Infant Mortality is the death of a baby before their 1st birthday. Reasons include: • PRETERM BIRTH (before 37 weeks), •BIRTH DEFECTS •MATERNAL COMPLICATIONS OF PREGNANCY •SIDS • INJURIES (suffocation) Although the infant mortality rate has been declining globally, here in the US - it has been increasing. There are solutions but it will take a collective effort to significantly reduce the rates. Solutions include breastfeeding, safe sleep practices, hiring a Doula & more. If you're not sure of what you can do, ASK! Consult with your local Midwife, Doula & Pediatrician. You or someone you know may be mourning the loss of their child. Please help me in spreading awareness. Tag your followers. Share on your timeline. Educate your families, friends & neighbors.

Trying to restrain my diatribe about oversanitization and choosing to smile instead 😁😂 . . Guys do you agree that we have gone too far with over-sanitization? . Study after study shows that overuse of household cleaners and antibacterials is causing so much more harm than good to our bodies!!! . . A brand new study from the Canadian medical Association Journal came up yesterday that looked at 757 infants from age 3 to 4 months and then again at ages one and three years to look at their exposure to disinfectants detergents etc. . . It was very clear that you can alter the microbiome in the baby as early as 3 to 4 months old due to the use of disinfectant and multi surface cleaner’s . Lower levels of clostridium and haemophilus and higher of lachnospiracae . . Many animal studies concur this change. . . . At three years old these children that had a lot of disinfectant used in their homes had a body mass index that was higher than the children not exposed to heavy home use of disinfectants! . . Gut micro biome changes can mean so many other things later in life as well. . So do me a favor and educate your friends families — use mild non toxic cleaner, vinegar mixed with water, don’t use Clorox wipes (I am talking to you @orangetheory 😂) , . I am not saying be a 🐷 . . ...but yes a little dirt and sharing bacteria (as long as the person is not sick) is a good thing. . Big caveat : remember if someone is acutely or severely ill in your house don’t use vinegar – pull out all the antibacterial stuff!! . .

Do you know about October 15th? It is the awareness day for pregnancy and infant loss. However, us here at @thelabormami can't bottle up these emotions in 1 day so we will honor those babies all month long. October 15th is was declared pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day. The day was to shine light on miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS, and the death of a newborn in many ways. Your loss will never go unnoticed here at @thelabormami. - #october #pregnancy #postpartum #infantloss #sids #stillbirth #miscarriage #infanthealth #infanthealthmatters #maternalhealthmatters #Newjersey

Oh baby! 👶👶🏻👶🏼👶🏽👶🏾👶🏿
Why #familyplanning is essential to achieving #UniversalHealthCoverage (#UHC ) . "Family planning enables women to live longer, healthier lives. It means that babies get off to the right start — with higher birth weight and better nutrition — and enjoy better health outcomes throughout childhood and into adulthood. Numerous studies show that access to contraception is directly and unequivocally linked to lower maternal morbidity and mortality, lower infant and under-5 mortality, and a whole host of improved health indicators. (Just one example: when a woman spaces her births by at least three years, her newborn baby is twice as likely to reach its first birthday.)" - @medium - Access the full article on contraceptioninfo.eu in the Updates section! .

#UnintendedPregnancies are not only bad news for the mother, but also for the child. Since mothers often begin antenatal care later in the pregnancy, babies born from these circumstances often don't get the healthiest start in life. It is better for everyone when pregnancies are not only expected, but eagerly anticipated!

Breastfeeding isn’t suppose to hurt. Baby isn’t meant to have milk leak from their mouth. Pulling off and on the breast or bottle isn’t normal feeding. Book a consult with me today to assess baby’s oral/feeding function. #motherhoodcoachingservices .com#mothercraftnurse #ibclc #lactationconsultant #tonguetie #infant #infanthealth #parenthood #motherhood #consulting #consultant #breastfeeding #breastmilk #bottlefeeding
This thing works better than any of those little squeeze bulb suckers. It seems gross but it has a great filter that keeps anything from coming through. Think it's gross? Not as gross as allowing all that snot to stay up in your baby's sinus cavities, blocking out some of their ability to breathe. NoseFrida the Snotsucker, the doctor-developed and doctor-recommended nasal aspirator is the new standard in keeping babies naturally snot free. Ingeniously simple Swedish design features a tube that is placed against the nostril (not inside). Parents use their own suction to draw mucus out of their child's nose. Disposable filters clinically proven to prevent any bacterial transfer. NoseFrida is easy to clean, dishwasher safe, and BPA and Phthalate free. It is superior to the bulb aspirator, presents no risk or harm to internal nasal structures and is dramatically more efficacious. Simple and Effective. The simple Swedish design features a BPA and Phthalate free tube that is placed against babies’ nostril (not inside). Hygienic. The disposable Hygiene Filters are clinically proven to prevent the transfer of mucus or bacterial germs. It is recommended to change the filter after each use. Easy to Use. NoseFrida uses parents’ own suction to clear babies’ stuffy noses. Place large tube against child’s nostril creating a seal, use red mouthpiece to suck out snot. Move tube in a circular motion against child’s nostril - you will hear and see mucus coming out of the nose. For thick mucus, use a few drops of NoseFrida Saline Snot Spray in each nostril to help loosen mucus before using NoseFrida. Easy to Clean. All pieces come apart. Most parts are top-rack dishwasher safe. Lifetime guarantee on all parts (besides filters), it comes with a few, and you can always buy more. After seeing the difference of the suction, simplicity and the amount of snot it gets out, I will choose this over the bulbs any day for the sake of my baby. #NoseFrida #stuffynose #babyhealth #infanthealth #infant #sickbaby #congestion #health #parentinghacks #parent #consumerreport #niftyinventions #bpafree #mucus #snottynose #snot #buggers #boogers

The science is not settled on the long term effects of exposure to EMF radiation, so why expose yourself or your babies if you don’t have to? Turning those connections off saves battery life too! #wholehealthymama #wholehealthylife #emf #emfprotection #geneticexpression #wellness #momlife #prenatalhealth #postpartum #infanthealth #toddlerwellness
Doggone Sick. Prayers & Healing vibes please & TY 💓 She woke up in the middle of the night with congestion. I then began a hot steamy shower with essential oils, wrapped her up, used more essential oils in a diffuser and mixed some with carrier oils for topical use. Used a snot sucker to clean her nose throughout the day and used saline to gently cleanse inside her nostrils. She was a good sport, running around 4 different cities today! We came home, rested, had a bath, I put breast milk in her nose. AND now she's attached to mama, getting her nutritious milk that she so greatly needs. It started out in her nasal cavities and is now in her respiratory. Hoping by in the morning, it will be gone or at least subduing. #sickbaby #baby #babyssick #infants #infanthealth #essentialoils #breastmilk #saline #respiratory #nasal #sickness #illness #getbettersoon
