A birth plan allows for everyone involved in the birthing process to know what your wishes are for before, during, and after labor. A birthing plan contains information such as: your healthcare provider, who you want present during labor and birth, what positions you want to be in for labor, if and what drugs you would like to ease pain during labor, if you want to breastfeed your baby, if you want your baby boy circumcised, and special traditions that take place when the baby is born. These are some examples of what can be included but it is up to you to decide what you wish to include in the plan. Depending on the practices of where you are giving birth, you may not have to include certain things in your birth plan because it’s the standard of practice. There are many templates online that allow you to customize your birth plan.

There are benefits to breastfeeding for both mom and baby. Breast milk contains the perfect mixture of nutrition that babies need to grow and be healthy.One of the things that separates breast milk from formula is that it contains antibodies that help your baby to fight off bacteria and viruses. Because of these antibodies, babies who are breastfed experience less diarrhea, fewer ear infections, and fewer respiratory illnesses. Breastfeeding also has an impact later on in life. Breastfeeding has been associated with higher IQ scores and lower risks of diabetes, cancer, and obesity. Breastfeeding also has many benefits for mothers. Breastfeeding burns calories so it can help you lose weight faster. Breastfeeding lowers a woman’s risk of developing ovarian and breast cancer. Breastfeeding also helps to reduce uterine bleeding because it releases oxytocin which causes your uterus to shrink back to it’s normal size.

Nutrition is very important during pregnancy because because your baby requires certain nutrients to develop. Eating a balanced diet helps the baby to be healthy and can minimize some symptoms like nausea and constipation. It’s also important to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water.

Some things need to be restricted or avoided altogether during pregnancy. Caffeine and artificial sweeteners should be restricted. Pregnant women can safely have 200 mg or less of caffeine per day. Alcohol needs to completely be avoided in the first trimester because it can cause defects in the baby.

There are certain vitamins that need to be consumed daily to ensure the proper growth and development of the baby. Folic acid help prevent major birth defects of the fetal brain and spine called neural tube defects and pregnant women need at least 400 micrograms per day. Iron is important because pregnant women need to produce more blood to supply oxygen to the fetus and should consume 27 mg per day. Calcium i...

Breastfeeding should always be considered first before formula feeding but there are instances where breastfeeding isn’t an option and formula must be used, or supplemented alongside breastfeeding. Many of the baby formulas sold in the United States have corn syrup as one of the main ingredients. This is not healthy and for that reason, we suggest ordering formula online from a few european companies. Europe has better farming practices; the ingredients used in infant formula can have no detectable levels of pesticide residue. This standard for pesticide levels is what we consider as organic. Infant formula also comes in stages: stage 1 (birth to 6 months), stage 2 (6+ months), and stage 3 (toddlers). As babies are quickly growing, their nutrition requirements are also rapidly changing. European formulas also are generally more conservative with additives and have a shorter ingredients list. The brands that we recommend are HiPP (from Germany, UK, or Dutch), Holle, and Lebenswert. HiPP...

Children should remain in certain car seats, depending on their height and weight, until they outgrow the weight or height limits. It’s important to look at the height and weight recommendations on the car seat and not base the seat on the child's age because children grow at different rates. Infants and toddlers should begin in a rear facing car seat, then move to a forward facing car seat, then a booster seat, before finally using only a seat belt. Seat belts usually begin to fit children properly once the child is 4’9” and between the ages of 9-12 years old.

Women who are pregnant or are trying to become pregnant should make sure they are getting enough folate/folic acid in their diet. It is recommended that pregnant women get 400-800 mcg of folic acid per day. Folic acid helps to prevent miscarriage and birth defects. Folic acid can be taken in a supplement, like a prenatal vitamin, and there are also lots of ways to get folate through food. Foods that are high in folate are broccoli, spinach, lettuce, asparagus, okra, lemons, bananas, melons, yeast, beans, mushrooms, kidney, beef liver, eggs, tomato juice, and orange juice.

Folate isn’t just for pregnant women. Folate is important for everyone and can be used for memory loss, osteoporosis, depression, hearing loss related to age, sleep problems, and muscle pain just to name a few. Adults should be getting 400 mcg per day, or more if folic acid is being used as a treatment for something.
