Check out this week’s chat with @hamilton_family_doulas on how important peer support is! Posted @withregram • @hamilton_family_doulas You were not meant to do this alone. But when you are new to an area, living away from friends and family or the first of your friends to have a baby, it can be really, really lonely to be a new parent. ⁠

This week we're talking to Cierra Bailey of Not Mother Goose about how important peer support is to the parents of babies and young children.⁠

April is Cesarean Awareness Month and we’re here to celebrate all the amazing mamas and birthing people who brought their babies into the world through belly birth.

THM is also please to welcome Claudia as a senior student starting in May.

Claudia Di Clemente is a senior student in the Midwifery Education Program at McMaster University, who also holds an Hon. B.Sc. in Psychology and Philosophy from the University of Toronto. Claudia is drawn to midwifery practice as it intersects with both reproductive healthcare and client advocacy. In her time off, Claudia enjoys hanging out with her cat Maisie, taking care of her many houseplants, and spending as much time as possible outdoors.

THM is pleased to welcome 2 new senior Midwifery students to work with us for their final year of the McMaster program.

Touka will be joining us in April.

Touka is in her final year of the Midwifery Education Program at McMaster and is excited to complete the program in her hometown! Prior to midwifery Touka spent a brief time in Nursing at McMaster which grew her perspective on holistic approaches to healthcare. Combined with a passion for reproductive and maternal health, and shared values of autonomy, choice, and accessibility, Touka was naturally drawn to midwifery care.

Touka is grateful to be a part of such a significant moment in people’s lives and looks forward to being a part of The Hamilton Midwives team.

The research is clear that the presence of a doula improves outcomes for birthing people and their babies. Higher rates of vaginal birth, lower rates of cesarean section, more positive feelings about birth, higher APGAR scores for babies just to name a few. We hope that some day doula care is covered by our provincial health care but for now, hiring a doula might be a worthwhile investment for pregnant people to consider!

And another great prenatal learning option this weekend from @hypnobirthinghamilton! Great local #hamont businesses coming through for expecting people this week!! Posted @withregram • @hypnobirthinghamilton Want to help another family have an informed and empowered experience? Let them know there are only 2 spots left in the Hypnobirthing series beginning on March 14th. The April series is full, so those expecting as far away as the end of June would be wise to join the March class unless they'd like a private series.

Class dates are also up through to August, so folks who recently discovered there's a babe on the way can also see what their options are.

Thank you for telling your friends and family about my services -- the more empowered each of us is, the better this world. I truly appreciate your support!

We know you love your baby. We know you are strong. We know you aren’t making it up. We know you aren’t lazy or ungrateful or complaining. We understand. We will help. We are here with you. Posted @withregram • @psychedmommy We can experience shame when we speak up. We can feel invalidated. We can feel fear of the unknown. Whatever it is that we’re feeling—it’s not bigger than the freedom we can experience when we come together and say “I see you—your pain is valid.” If you’re afraid to speak up today, maybe you’re not surrounded by the people meant to help you. Don’t let the battle in your mind stop you from getting the help you need.

How do you face COVID-19 variants? By upping your mask game | CBC News

With new variants on the horizon, now is not the time to lose sight of the best things you can do to reduce the chance of getting COVID 19.

1. Stay home when you can!
2. Physical distance plus a well fitting mask

Check out the video for a cool tip to make a standard face mask fit better and close those side gaps- a close fit is crucial to its success as a mask.

Double-masking is getting a lot of attention, but an infectious disease specialist says that's just one way to ramp up your defenses. We asked Dr. Lisa Barrett for her pro tips.
