Free Lecture on Vaccination Choices and Controversies (Media, PA)

Please join the Delaware County chapter of Holistic moms Network for our monthly meeting on Wednesday, September 17, 2008 at 7pm at Ohm Chiropractic Center, 327 N Middletown Road in Media. This month we will have Dr. Jeanne Ohm from Ohm Chiropractic Center present her lecture Vaccinations - Choices and Controversies.

We had such a great turn out and follow up requests for information on this topic when we presented it back in June that we decided to offer the presentation again for those of you who may have missed it before. Dr. Ohm specializes in prenatal chiropractic care for expectant mothers and their infants. In addition to her time in the office, Dr. Ohm travels internationally and speaks about Vaccinations - Choices and Controversies. She is on post-graduate faculty for numerous chiropractic colleges and is the Executive Coordinator of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. (As always, children are welcome at our meetings, but as an FYI, this presentation will run longer than our typical HMN meetings and will include a PowerPoint presentation shown in the downstairs lecture room at Ohm Chiropractic.)

Postpartum Support - Chat with an Expert

Postpartum Support International, or PSI, is offering free, anonymous chat sessions with licensed mental health professionals.
This is a safe place where you can feel free to ask questions you would like to have answered. Having a baby is a major emotional and physical adjustment. It’s normal to wonder:

“Is It Just the Blues?

“Am I the only one who feels this way?”

“What can I do to help my daughter, friend, niece, wife?”

This is a place where Moms, family members, support people for moms, or professionals can find some answers.

For more information and the chat schedule, click here.

Babies most in need are not being breastfed

While the CDC recently reported that more moms than ever give breastfeeding a try, a new national study shows most moms do not stick with it as long as they should.

Although 77 percent of moms nationally start to breastfeed, the new Brigham Young University study found that only 36 percent of babies are breastfed through six months, well short of the federal government’s goal to hit 50 percent by 2010. The American Association of Pediatricians recommends continued breastfeeding through the first year.
