Too much Foremilk? Not enough Hindmilk? 🤷🏼♀️ Don’t overthink it ! I love this article from Nancy Mohrbacher
Worries About Foremilk and Hindmilk — Nancy Mohrbacher A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing. This has never been so true as in the ongoing debate about foremilk and hindmilk and their impact on breastfeeding. The misunderstandings around these concepts have caused anxiety, upset, and even led to breastfeeding problems and prem
Are you pregnant or breastfeeding and wondering about the safety of the COVID-19 vaccine? Please see the statement from the Infant Risk Center:
The InfantRisk Center has received numerous queries concerning the use of Covid-19 Vaccinations in pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. Below are recommendations from several groups.
"Plain Language Summary:
Similar to other medications, pregnant and/or breastfeeding women have not been included in studies to determine how well COVID vaccines work or how safe they are. Based on what we understand from similar vaccines, we believe the risks that come with vaccination will probably be low. Therefore, while we wait for more information, each mother and provider should discuss what choice fits their situation best. The risk and benefit of the vaccine should be compared to each mother’s individual risk for getting COVID-19 as well as how well she is expected to tolerate the disease."
For updates on this information please see www.cdc.gov and www.infantrisk.com

Sure it might be scary to read but it’s even scarier to say ....so let’s make sure no one else has to travel this road. Have you suffered with Postpartum Depression? If you have, SHARE YOUR GENES for research!!!
"I have a hard time after I have my babies."
That's the euphemism I use if anyone asks about my kids as newborns. But the reality? I had crippling Postpartum depression (PPD).
Each time it presented differently, but an unfortunate common thread all 3 times was that my PPD spiraled into suicidal thoughts that bombarded me daily. My husband was really the only one who knew the extent of it - how do you go about bringing this up in polite company? "Yeah, whatever Postpartum hormone cocktail my body produces makes me want to kill myself, anyone else?"
I hate how PPD stole the beginning of my motherhood, but there is a hopeful ending. Eventually with time, medication, and sharing, the darkness fades. And while I can't change what happened to me in the past I can influence the future. Participating in this research study felt empowering - because if I can do anything to prevent my children from going through the hell I did, I will.
Without mothers like Tabitha, we wouldn't be able to do the important work that we do. Our hope is that no future mom will have to suffer from postpartum depression. Thank you for sharing your story with us. If you have a story you'd like to share, DM us, we'd love to hear from you. ♥️
Are you 1 in 7 ? Were you 1 in 7 ? If so, girl donate those genes !! Help those wicked smart researchers find out why this happens and how to cure it !! Don’t let any more moms have to face this.

Happy world breastfeeding week 2020. I may be on vacation this week but I am thinking about all of you and hoping you all spread the word to bring awareness.
Postpartum depression and anxiety doesn’t discriminate....her experience and sharing makes her a better doctor. Have you experienced PMAD’s (Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders)? If so consider sharing your genes for research.
I had my first son at the very end of medical school, right before I moved to the opposite coast. See, I’m a planner - I timed it this way so I would have exactly 6 weeks off. I started my intern year with a 6 week old, who appropriately was up every 2 hours, and I was trying to navigate breast feeding and being a new mom and new doctor, with the support of my husband, himself a new stay at home dad. Looking back, I realize I was depressed pretty early on, and it only got worse, but I wasn’t paying attention, I was too busy trying to survive. When it got bad, when I was having terrible anxiety and thinking so often about all of the terrible things that could befall my son, only then, did I tell someone. Thankfully, I was a resident at UNC, where Dr. Samantha Meltzer-Brody , an expert in Women’s Mood Disorders, is a physician. Immediately, with her encouragement, I got help and started seeing a psychiatrist, receiving medications and intensive therapy. Only then did I disclose my symptoms to my partner, as I had been too afraid to do so before, fearful of being considered a bad mother. With treatment and support from so many, I got better. I went on to have a second son in residency, this time prepared for the potential of a return of my symptoms, with a game plan ready, just in case. Now, I’m a better physician and a better psychiatrist for having experienced postpartum depression and anxiety, I can relate to my patients and understand better their worries and fears. With treatment and support, it does get better. Together, we can use our to fight PPD.
Thank you for sharing your story with us and joining us in the fight against Postpartum Depression. ♥️
