Support groups for new parents 9/2/2005

Ann Keppler, RN (Tues and Weds) and Judy Herrigel facilitate these weekly support groups for parents and their infants at the Community Birth and Family Center. They are divided into age groups (birth to 12 weeks, 3 to 6 months, etc) and are held at different times of day depending on the child's age. You do not have to sign up for the classes and can drop in when you get the chance (it's okay if you're late!)---a $5 donation is encouraged with each class you attend. I have found these classes to be invaluable (esp with my first!) as a means of support and excellent, well-intentioned advice on everything from dispelling breastfeeding myths to answering questions about sleep and fussiness. I would encourage all new moms to try and attend at least one of these classes. Ann Keppler is a wealth of knowledge and kindness (she co wrote the book "Pregnancy, Childbirth and the Newborn")! You can view all of the classes at www.communitybirth.org. more

A Better Birthing Environment 4/28/2005

Had my first baby at Swedish. The otherwise extremely competent nurse's idea of labor support was asking me when I wanted my epidural. She just didn't seem to know how to help someone birth without drugs. Had my second baby at Community Birth & Family Center. Hurt worse. Felt better overall. My skeptical husband and I did the research: in low-risk pregnancies, outcomes are the same (and some studies say better) with midwife-assisted births with no drugs. It feels MUCH better afterward than when you are post-drugs and in the hospital. Your baby and you figured it out together. Breastfeeding hurt just as much the second time as it did the first, but this time I didn't quit because I had more confidence in myself. Neither experience was perfect--birth is too complex, scary and personal a process for it to go perfectly. But if you compare the hospital environment to a midwife-assisted birth, you might decide as I did to go with the latter. Community Birth & Family Center was a sweet environment in which to give birth. more
