YOU GUYS! My Pocket Brain is now in-stock and available for immediate shipping!!! Share with all your friends who do Women's Health practice in any capacity! 😁

Ways I have used it the last few weeks:
1. Teenage patient with infection of ingrown toenail... What in the world should I prescribe?! My diagram of upper and lower body infections helped me narrow down that it was likely a gram negative infection and my susceptibility chart helped me pick which antibiotic. My prescribing breakdown helped me make sure to fill out the Rx completely without missing important info.

2. Dating by LMP prompts helped with my interview process at a new OB appt with a patient who was unsure of her LMP but remembered other events around the same time... Then her dating ultrasound was consistent with dates!

3. My PAP flowsheet helped me make recommendations to a patient based on her previous results without having to pull my phone out.

4. My diagnostics-per-trimester breakdown helped me with ordering labs for a 28 week visit without having to dig through the ACOG practice guidelines.

5. I had a quick reference for a patient who experienced an incomplete miscarriage and was able to go through her options with her in the room, without having to go look-up everything.

6. A patient was concerned when we identified possible lichen sclerosis during her colposcopy. She was immediately worried due to her abnormal PAP history but I was able to SHOW HER the basic info and illustrations of the condition in my book, right then and there, without Google telling her to freak out. She was put at ease about this and felt much better about her biopsy.

I could keep going.... but you get the idea :-)

I know I'm a day late. Thanks to countless men and women who have lost their lives in the military, I was able to celebrate a safe and free Memorial Day with my family.

If you scroll through this post, you will see the names of female military personnel who lost their lives in Afghanistan. Did you know 153 women have lost their lives in combat since 2001? They were mothers, sisters, daughters, and all shared a goal to make the world a better place through their service.

Though yesterday was filled with splashes in the pool, fajita tacos, and lots of laughter and cuddles- I still found the time to practice some mindfulness and gratefulness for the service members who gave their lives.

I hope you all had a great Memorial Day ❀️

Anybody else have the new album on repeat today? Aside from it being AHHHHHHmazing.... Her song, SKINNY, deeply resonated with me.

Y'all know I share a lot about mental health... but I'm gonna share something about my health that I don't really share openly...

TW: mental health, su***de, postpartum mood disorders, violent invasive thoughts, eating disorders

During the darkest time of my life, I lost nearly 25% of my body weight in about 3 months. The craziest thing about it? Everyone who saw me not only commented on my weight, but really dug in how "positive" it was and how "great" I looked. I was in the midst of a crippling panic disorder, relentless postpartum OCD driven by uncontrollable vivid and violent intrusive thoughts, and it was the closest I've ever been to ending my own life. Eating was impossible because of the constant nausea. My hair was falling out in handfuls. I cried between consults, I cried in my car, I cried in the shower. I couldn't sleep. Everything was dark and empty.

I finally asked for help because I didn't want to die.
I'm healing.
I'm medicated.
I go to therapy every week.
I still struggle with my weight and a very dysregulated appetite.
I don't feel at home in my body.
I don't recognize myself in the mirror most days.

I've struggled a lot with feeling like I'm "allowed" to talk about this because a lot of the movement feels anti-small.

But.... Billie helped me find my voice today.
Skinny does not mean healthy.
I didn't hate how I looked before.
She is pretty. I miss her. I'm still her.

Did you know that between all of us, we have ELEVEN kids?!

It's Jade here.... I knew when I started my business, I had two main missions: help families feed their babies AND make sure my employees are people first.

I know we aren't for everybody because you WILL see our kids at the office, you WILL hear our kids in the background of phone calls, we aren't available on nights and weekends, sometimes we will have to call you back, and you may also have to wait for a text response. I refuse to run my business the way big hospital systems or corporate structures do.... I will not buy into because it is toxic AF and leads to poorer outcomes and experiences for patients AND employees.

I deeply believe that making sure my employees and their families are taken care of means that they will take better care of you ❀️
works from home with a toddler and a nursing baby 24/7.milkandhoneylactation has three boys and never-ending soccer practice.ibclc has two girls and *just* last week finally got her husband home after 10 years of active duty.
And
is an amazing single mom with limited childcare help.
These girls are not numbers to me. Their kids are not faceless extensions of an employee on my payroll or just dependents on their tax forms. I adore each of them and their families.

To expand on that...
YOU are not just a number to us. YOU are not just a paid insurance claim. You mean the world to us as an individual and we care so much about each and every one of you. Our hearts break with you, we cry with you, we heal with you, we celebrate with you, and we will walk every step of this journey with you.

Which means that filling our own cups is a very necessary part of this job.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with expecting that the phone is always answered immediately, thinking it's unprofessional to see or hear our children, or wanting care during nights and weekends! However, we may not be the best fit for you, and that's okay ❀️

Life is not black and white.... That's even more true after you have a baby.

When you reframe the way you talk about your feelings, it can really help with the guilt and confusion that ALL of us feel when we are experiencing mixed emotions. Here's the thing.... It's okay to feel both. One doesn't make the other go away- at the more we fight it, the worse we feel.
Because...

πŸ’š The good feeling doesn't acknowledge how hard things are.

❀️ The bad feeling makes us feel ungrateful for the good things.

Using the word "AND" instead of "BUT" can help acknowledge the negative feelings while feeling grateful for positive feelings at the same time. You are ALLOWED to feel both at the same time! There's no "silver-lining" the bad stuff and no negating the good stuff- both are real and exist.

What ways are you feeling at the same time? Tell us in the comments πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌ

Thanks to the tireless work of and , SB1832 PASSED on the House Floor this morning!!! With a landslide of 78 votes in favor of the bill, these six men voted "no."

This bill will add community members in TN who actually *work* in the maternal health field to the maternal health advisory committee in an effort to decrease our states maternal death rates... Which has TRIPLED over the last several years, with Black women disproportionately holding the highest number of deaths. In nearly 80% of cases, the deaths were preventable; 71% of the women who have died were on Medicaid.

Interestingly, nearly all of these men voted "yes" to pass TN's "Human Life Protection Act" that went into effect August 25, 2022... This law prohibits accessibility to safe, legal medical procedures to end a pregnancy. Regardless of how anyone feels about this matter, it would only make sense to PROTECT women and reduce the rates that they are dying.

Remember these names and faces when you go to the polls in November.

April Fool's day is coming up and we want everyone to know that pregnancy announcements as an April Fool's joke are insensitive, hurtful, and frankly just not funny.

We all love a fun, playful April Fool's joke, but let's make it that way for everyone.

Let's do better.

Happy International Women's Day ❀️ oh! And happy late IBCLC Day!

What a week we have had.... International Women's Day means laying your differences aside and lifting up the woman next to you.

At M+H, we are so thankful to be working with and to bring change by adding amendments to SB1832.

On Wednesday, the TN Senate Committee of Health and Welfare approved the proposed amendments and the next stop is the House Floor!!!!!!

We are just getting started πŸ’ͺ🏼

Jade, here- not a M+H specific post but I would like to spend the word! If you have friends with teenagers, please share!!!

If you'd known all the things about your body that you know now.... Do you think you'd have made better decisions in high school and college? I know I would have 🫠

I'm very excited to be offering a class this summer created for girls and other adolescents ages 13 to 17... We will cover A LOT.

This will not be a sugar coated class. We will look at real anatomy, watch birth videos and discuss unplanned pregnancy, talk through the details of a speculum exam, learn to track changes in cervical fluid, understand ovulation, review all the pros and cons of hormonal birth control, look at non-hormonal birth control options, explore STIs, what healthy and unhealthy relationships look like, and how to really OWN their bodies.

This is the class I needed as a teen. Your daughters and kiddos will come out of this class understanding their bodies so much better, and will be equipped with the knowledge and the communication skills to make informed decisions about their bodies, relationships, and lives ❀️

PM me if you're interested so I can put you on the email list for updates!

Happy Thursday!
Have you spoken with when you've called or texted us?

Olivia experienced significant birth trauma with her first baby. She was far from her family, living in England, in 2020. COVID isolation was at an all time high and she didn't have access to good lactation support and struggled with oral ties that were not diagnosed or treated for a long time. Olivia is a survivor of and fought to continue providing her milk for her baby, even through .

Through her experience, she has found a passion for helping others facing similar struggles. We are so glad that she's a part of our team!!!

Somebody has to say it πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Did you know ALL 5 of us on the M+H team battled perinatal mood disorders?

And three of us are still on medications to help manage our mental health ❀️

Why do we share that with you? Well, because we want you to know that you are not alone... And that even as "experts" in babies and breastfeeding, we aren't immune to mental illness. When it happens, it does not define the type of parent you are, the person you are, the partner you are, or the professional you are... It has everything to do with the way our brains change in response to rapidly shifting hormones, adequate sleep, levels of stress, and even how the neurotrasmitters our bodies make are being used (or not used).

It's OKAY to not be okay. That's why we are here- to validate your struggles, to support you, to HEAR you, to SEE you, to care about you, and to help you find balance while supporting the goals you've set for yourself ❀️
