when to goto the birthign center

There is still Covid-19 risk!  You are presently breastfeeding and your good friend is confirmed to be pregnant.  Should you both take the Covid vaccine or is it too risky?  Do you know what the recommendations from CDC are? What is the correct answer?

  • The vaccine can pass to your breastmilk some passive immunity and can be unsafe for the newborn .
  • COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for all people aged 5 and older, including people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now or might become pregnant in the future.
  • Studies are limited and  you should not take the vaccine at the time of pregnancy or breastfeeding 
  •  You should only get the vaccination with your provider’s  approval  if you are pregnant or  breastfeeding.

Congratulations on your pregnancy.  You have a lot of things to think about!  Do you know how to prepare yourself for breastfeeding?  Which statement is incorrect?

  • Get your breast pump and learn how to operate it.
  • Choose a Lactation Consultant. 
  • Wash your breasts daily using soap, lifting up the breast and wash underneath it.
  • Never use soap on the breast it causes the skin to dry and crack .  Only use water and air dry.
  •  Take lactation classes to better prepare yourself. 

Yes!  Breast milk is best – but what do you do if you are unable or having difficulty?  Take my class and learn more about feeding your newborn!

What is a sunny side up baby?

Posted on
sunny side up baby

You are full-term and your provider has informed you  your baby’s head is in a posterior position, will likely be born facing the sun.  You are advised to use a peanut ball .  Do you know  about the Peanut Ball or do you need to take my class?

  1. The peanut ball widens the pelvis, which may encourage a baby in the sunny-side-up position to rotate to face down, thereby making the birth process easier.
  1. Decrease fatigue – labor and delivery can be rather strenuous.  Some women have said using a peanut ball helped them to rest and relax.  
  1. If you have a hip, pelvic, or pubic bone injury, or have had one in the past, a peanut ball may not be appropriate for you.
  1. A peanut ball actually has no effect on the body, it’s merely for comfort only.

You need a birthing class before a C-Section

Posted on

You are scheduled for a cesarean delivery. Your physician and you set up a date for cesarean. Should you prepare yourself by taking Nurse Jackie Prepared Childbirth Class, since you are not going into labor?  Can you pick the correct answer ?

1. Your schedule C/section date is before your due date and it is more than likely you will not go into labor before your schedule operation date. No need for classes 

2. It’s possible you can still go into labor prior to your schedule date and you should know the signs and symptoms of labor.

3. The mere thought of an operation can cause a level of anxiety.  Learn how to walk, stand, laugh, cough, etc. to tolerate these activities after your surgery.

4. You need to know the best position to hold, breastfeed your baby without placing the newborn on your incisional area.

5. Even with a cesarean you will still need to know different ways to feed your baby as well as complete baby care.

*We care about you – our classes are small and tailored to your individual needs.  You are very special to me!

Can you change your babies position from ROP (Right Occiput Posterior)?

Posted on
Right Occiput Posterior

In Right Occiput Posterior (ROP), baby is head down and the back is to the side- the mother’s right side. This position can be deceptively reassuring. ROP is the most common of the four posterior positions. Right Occiput Posterior – Baby’s back favors mother’s right side and the back of baby’s head is towards mother’s posterior. The baby would end up delivering facing the ceiling which gives you the challenge of delivering the baby with largest diameter of the head. Very often women take over 3 hours to drop the head down enough to deliver, especially the first time mothers. How can you change the baby position from ROP?

  • Acupuncture 
  • Use of a Peanut Ball
  • You can not change an infant position 
  • Lying on your side with your leg elevated on pillows between your legs
