A Mighty Girl
A great reminder for anyone planning New Year's resolutions this year! As observed by Mayo Clinic experts, "moms are probably the most important influence on a daughter's body image," surpassing the impact of other significant influencers such as media and peers. Given the importance of mothers as body image role models, Dr. Leslie Sim, clinical director of Mayo Clinic's eating disorders program, recommends that they avoid talk about weight, diets, and outer appearances around their daughters.
"Zero comments not only about your daughter's weight, obviously, but zero talk about your weight and even other people's weight," says Sim. Rather than focus on weight, parents can model healthy behaviors for their children such as eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly. It's also important to talk with young girls about natural changes in their bodies, especially as girls approach puberty and may experience normal weight gain during this development period.
To help instill the importance of loving yourself in your Mighty Girl, regardless of your size or shape, we've shared two dozen empowering books for children and teens in our blog post, "Celebrating Every Body: 25 Body Image Positive Books for Mighty Girls," at https://www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=10912
For two great books focused on building a positive body image in children, we highly recommend "I Like Myself" for ages 3 to 8 (https://www.amightygirl.com/i-like-myself) and "A Smart Girl's Guide to Liking Herself, Even on the Bad Days" for ages 9 to 12 (https://www.amightygirl.com/a-smart-girl-s-guide-to-liking-herself).
For an excellent guide focused on body image issues for teens 13 and up, check out "The Body Image Workbook for Teens: Activities to Help Girls Develop a Healthy Body Image in an Image-Obsessed World" for ages 13 and up at https://www.amightygirl.com/body-image-workbook
If you have an older Mighty Girl, we recommend books to help girls navigate issues related to puberty, including normal changes in weight and body shape, in our post on "Talking with Tweens and Teens about their Bodies" at https://www.amightygirl.com/blog?p=11090
And, for resources for parents on encouraging a healthy self-esteem and positive body image in their daughters, visit our "Body Image" parenting section at http://amgrl.co/1mf3td8

Hearts Get 'Younger,' Even At Middle Age, With Exercise
As early as your mid-40s, especially if you're sedentary, your heart muscle can show signs of aging, losing its youthful elasticity and power. But moderately strenuous exercise can change that.

Midwives do more than deliver babies!
Midwives do a lot more than just the assumed ‘baby catching.” Even if you don’t want or have a baby, midwives can provide comprehensive reproductive healthcare in the United States. Here’s what you should know.
Physicians at Johns Hopkins Medicine and the American Heart Association have released updated guidelines on managing cholesterol to minimize the risk of heart attack, stroke, and death.

The shape of a mother’s birth canal is a tug-of-war between two opposing evolutionary forces: It needs to be wide enough to allow our big-brained babies to pass through, yet narrow enough to allow women to walk efficiently. At least that’s been the common thinking. But a new study reveals birth canals come in a variety of shapes in women around the world.
The idea that women’s pelvises have been shaped by an evolutionary compromise—also known as the “obstetrical dilemma”—has been influential in anthropology, says Jonathan Wells, an expert in human evolution at University College London who was not involved with the work. But recent studies have challenged it, and the new findings add to that research, he says. If the obstetric dilemma held true, one would expect birth canals around the world to be relatively standardized, Wells says. But that’s not what researchers found.
‘To the nurse who held my stillborn baby, unfazed by the appearance of a tiny child born 20 weeks too soon. You stroked those itty-bitty fingers and toes. You talked about those eyes.’
"You told me my baby was beautiful, although the rest of the world would likely have disagreed. As you placed my breathless baby into the palms of my hands, I too became breathless."

They are a caring presence and an empathetic listener at the bedside and offer assistance with specific religious needs during a hospitalization.

One of the greatest gifts you can give a child is the "love of reading". In partnership with The Official Loudoun County Public Schools and Books-A-Million, our team celebrated the Books for Babies program today. This is an 18 year partnership that we are proud to be a part of.
Approximately 3,000 babies a year are born in
The Birthing Inn at Inova Loudoun Hospital and Natural Birth Center. Each newborn receives a package of books in both English and Spanish before going home, lovingly assembled by our very own volunteer project table.
Studies have shown that reading to children at a young age helps to foster lifelong learning and we love being part of that!
Every week she watches the bin men at the window, so they decided to surprise her 😊❤️️
