To be fair, this is how I react to Christmas lights every time!

As we wrap up our last week of classes for the year, we would like to thank all the amazing families that we had the opportunity to meet and know throughout 2018. Thank you for letting us be a small part of one of the most life-changing times you'll ever experience. We are truly blessed to be able to offer this program in our community, and hope to do so for a very long time.

Our staff will be out of the office until Thursday, December 27th, but please feel free to contact Meghan at (785) 577-9187 with any concerns or questions that might arise before then. Have a wonderful holiday!!

Becoming a Mom - Salina, Kansas

FEELING TOUCHED OUT IS NORMAL It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by touch when you’ve got a cluster-feeding newborn and a jealous toddler and you never get to pee or shower or eat by yourself. It is NORMAL to feel touched out and it does NOT mean you aren’t bonding or that you don’t love your babies enough. Postpartum is hard enough as it is without you judging yourself for your feelings. Talk to your partner, talk to a postpartum doula, talk to ANYONE about your feelings. Be honest with yourself and with your support team. Most importantly, ask for HELP. They weren’t kidding when they said it takes a village. So ask for help and take a shower, pee with the bathroom door shut, and eat a full, nourishing meal. Take a moment for yourself and reset your touch threshold. Your babies need you happy, healthy, and ready to fill their needs. If your cup is empty, you can’t fill theirs. Ask for help ✨ #postpartum #touchedout #postpartumdoula EDIT: Y’all!!! I’m blown away by how widespread this card has reached. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all of the love. Just by reading the comments, I’ve seen people get suggestions and help based on what they need and that was the whole point of this post!! There is a community out there for you. You are NOT alone in your feelings or emotions as a parent ♥️ I’ve been working SO hard on this affirmation deck so that it is inclusive of all families.

Today is Mental Health Day, which is near and dear to our hearts! Around 15-20% of new and expectant parents are affected by perinatal mood disorders, including (but not limited to) depression, anxiety, and OCD. Some people, including myself, experience all three! Thankfully, there are many resources available to help in Salina and surrounding communities. If you think you may be experiencing a pregnancy related mood disorder, help is available! We provide free and confidential screens, and can help you navigate the next step. You're not alone, and you don't need to suffer in silence. ❤❤ Please contact Meghan for more information if you're not sure where to turn. I'm more than happy to share my experience and help you in any way I can. You can message me though this page or text me at (785) 577-9187 for more information. ... See MoreSee Less

For all our ovary-owning friends, it's Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month!First up in our Awareness Month Mini-Series is Ovarian Cancer. Ovarian cancer starts in the ovaries/ends of the Fallopian tubes. Ovarian cancer often goes unnoticed because of how minor the symptoms seem: bloated stomach, belly pain, an urgent/frequent feeling of urination, and the sense of feeling full after only a couple of bites. While researchers cannot pinpoint a single cause of Ovarian Cancer, they suggest that there may be some factors that put an individual at a higher risk: getting older, being overweight/obese, having children later in life, a family history of ovarian cancer, and more. Catching it early is the best thing to do: get regular health exams, go to a doctor if you feel symptoms. For more information on Ovarian Cancer: http://ow.ly/ZiVD30lCW1n or see your doctor. ...

Things are changing again... Read the Guidelines/Recommendations here!

*Children should ride in a rear-facing car safety seat AS LONG AS POSSIBLE, up to the limits of their car safety seat. This will include virtually all children under 2 years of age and most children up to age 4.

*Once they have been turned around, children should remain in a forward-facing car safety seatup to that seat’s weight and length limits. Most seats can accommodate children up to 60 pounds or more.

*When they exceed these limits, child passengers should ride in a belt-positioning booster seat until they can use a seat belt that fits correctly.
Once they exceed the booster limits and are large enough to use the vehicle seat belt alone, they should always use a lap and shoulder belt.

*All children younger than 13 years should be restrained in the rear seats of vehicles for optimal protection.The American Academy of Pediatrics is publishing updated recommendations on car safety seats. Children should remain in a rear-facing car safety seat as long as possible, until they reach the highest weight or height allowed by their seat. The new recommendation removes the specific age milestone. Learn more here: https://www.aap.org/en-us/about-the-aap/aap-press-room/Pages/AAP-Updates-Recommendations-on-Car-Seats-for-Children.aspx
