Shared by Oh Baby graduate, Morgan Beautiful, empowering, positive, and magical.  These are all things that Caesarean births can be with the right support. I have had two belly births and they could not have been further apart in terms of experience.  With my first birth, I went into it with the opinion that I was going to go with the flow. I was happy with whatever the outcome was going to be as long as I had a happy and healthy baby. This had been preached to me many times but no one mentioned that I mattered too. My happiness was equally as important.  Towards the end of my p ..read more

This April 11-17 is the fifth annual Black Maternal Health Week. Systemic racism impacts marginalized people in many ways, and unfortunately pregnancy and birth are no exception. ⁣An absolutely terrifying fact is that maternal mortality rates are more than 3x higher for Black women compared with white women. Black women are also at higher risk of postpartum depression and anxiety disorders. This is one of the widest of all disparities in women’s health. One of the primary reasons this occurs is due to systemic barriers that prevent racialized communities from accessing health care and birthi ..read more

My First Meal After Giving Birth & A Recipe For Birth Broth
Oh Baby Nutrition
by Carley Mendes
2y ago
Nourishing food is one of the most important parts of postpartum recovery. I’ve never experienced hunger quite like I did in those first few days postpartum when my milk was coming in, but immediately after birth it’s best to start slow with easily digestible and nutrient dense foods. Think of foods you would turn to when recovering from the flu. As you can imagine, the organs in your abdomen are all going through a massive shift and digestion can be compromised. The meal I had after the birth of my first baby consisted of 'Birth Broth', orange slices & postpartum tea. It was so hydrating ..read more

Has your little one ever had a reaction to something they’ve eaten? Or maybe you’re starting solids and want to know how to properly introduce allergenic foods? Properly identifying your child’s reaction to certain foods can be challenging. The terms “food allergy” and “food sensitivity” are often used interchangeably. This is because they both have some overlapping symptoms, which can make them easy to misinterpret.
