I am so excited for our Bradley Day Family Festival...happening this weekend!!
I have been MIA from the SPB blog in order to coordinate this celebration of Dr. Bradley's life and work. Our intention is to host an event that informs families about healthy pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and parenting choices that are in-line with Dr. Bradley’s philosophy of “It’s Not Nice to Fool Mother Nature”.
While Dr. Bradley was an advocate for natural birth, he was also an advocate for healthy pregnancies and a healthy lifestyle.
A hospital providing facilities for water birth, another look at a controversial new IVF protocol, some breastfeeding information to consider....here's what's new from around the web this week.
What We Know About Three-Parent In Vitro Fertilization
“The numerous concerns raised during the two-day meeting
made it clear that there are still gaping holes in the data and countless
issues to work through. But a strange thing happened: Many people from across
the political and professional spectrum unexpectedly found common ground.
The biggest news in birth over the last week: wait!!! So hopeful that the newest guidelines from ACOG and theSociety for Maternal-Fetal Medicine
will be taken to heart and that we will see a clear reduction in the primary cesarean rate within the next few years.
Here are other stories and tidbits that I thought you might find interesting:
Acupuncture technique ‘creates the right
conditions’ for conceiving babies
Kite was working in private practice in London in the early 1990s when a woman
in her early 40s came for hay fever relief, not mentioning that she been trying
for a baby for years.
It has been a long winter break...finally getting back into reading and collecting the latest news around the web for you! Some really interesting finds this week about new fertility options, the role of Vitamin D in pregnancy, and always, breastfeeding. SO excited to learn that another state in the USA is making another push to protect breastfeeding MotherBabies with a breastfeeding protection code. In addition, Missouri is also adding to their breastfeeding laws to protect breastfeeding mothers from contempt of court if they can't serve jury duty.
