When You Teach A Woman You Teach A Nation Prebirth Parenting, Prenatal Care, Vision Parenting Group  designed for pregnant mothers.


I attended "Bringin' In Da Spirit meeting, and as I sat quietly in the back, I was very pleased with the information shared regarding the granny midwives and how they were the ones who took better care of our families. It was such a pleasure to see Mama Sarahn Henderson & Mama Nasrah Oshun, Senior Midwives that I've partnered with over the years in Atlanta, to teach some of their clients childbirth education. Mama Ummat Salama shared how the midwifery model of care differs from the medical model. In midwifery having a baby is considered a natural process of womanhood and a rites of passage. In the medical model it's considered a pathology. So the medical team is looking for and treating the mother as if it was a problem or that she has an illness.

It was shocking to learn that Georgia has the highest mother mortality rate in the country. Number 1 on the list of causes of mortality was hemorrhage. The time of mortality includes the period that covers pregnancy through postpartum up to a year after given birth. Mothers in this group, who knew that Iron deficiency causes henorrhaging? In my childbirth and positive parenting classes I've always focused on healthy nutritional awareness. With emphasis on Calcium, Iron and Protein. When I see cups of ice on the table or boxes of starch I remind mommies to please eat healthier foods to bring their Iron levels up.

On the basis of information that is documented with regular assessments throughout pregnancy, the mother, her support, & her birthing team can realistically be prepared for a short or long labor. Suggestions will be made to mother regarding nutrition, exercise, & reading assignments that influence an easier birth thus reducing the risk of complications.

A childbirth educator, midwife & doula will offer mother nutritional counseling, & educational information on traditional remedies. Mind - body integration techniques for relaxation & stress management are also key for discussion regarding an empowered birthing experience. After the initial information, the midwife will ask questions about: · the mother's state of health, · the status of her relationship to the father· the status of her support system (friends, family) · previous pregnancies · family medical history, etc. · parental maturity& responsibility regarding the health of the pregnant mother & baby· reasons for her choices & places of birth. · During the visit fees for services & payment options are also discussed.
