Pregnant Moms". This post was sent from my phone and meant for my other
blog http://theoliveparent.blogspot.com . Instead of deleting the post,
I thought it would be a good time to share the (drastic) cosmetic
changes I made to it. If you have seen it prior to its changes then
you'll understand what I mean by drastic!
While these two blogs may seem composed of two entirely different
subjects. The OliveParent reflects my 2nd passion in life and goes hand
in hand with how I worship and live my life by faith alone. Like I do in
this blog, I encourage parents, mainly women to know and understand for
themselves, what takes place in their bodies and raise their
babies/children with confidence. This sentiment is aimed at women who
have healthy, normal pregnancies and want more options in birth as
opposed to the over-medicalized process that reflects society fear
and/or disdain for what the Lord had created to be normal and natural.
As you all know, I have six beautiful children. I have had a home birth
with four of them. I also promote breastfeeding on this blog as I am
somewhat of a lactivist.
Did you know that the cesarean rate has rose for the 11th straight year
and is over 30 percent? Did you know the rate of pre-term babies is also
rising. Did you know our infant mortality ranking is bad for a country
as advanced as ours? Did you know that the cesarean rate for home births
are significantly lower than hospitals? You can find these subjects
discussed on the OliveParent. You may not find the OliveParent to your
interest, but please feel to refer it to someone who may be.
Stay warm and safe in this weather!
