Backpack Pain: What’s All the Flap About?

Aching backs and shoulders? Tingling arms? Weakened muscles? Stooped posture?

d64f50bfAs course loads get bigger, the emotional and physical stress placed on our kids grows. Carrying too much weight in a pack or wearing it the wrong way can lead to pain and strain, but parents can take steps to help children load and wear backpacks the correct way to avoid health problems.

Today is National School Backpack Awareness Day, an annual event held on the third Wednesday of every September to raise awareness about the serious health effects that backpacks that are too heavy or worn improperly have on children. Backpack Day is also a time to promote the full range of occupational therapy benefits and services, which are available at Woman’s Center for Wellness.

Dad’s Role in Pregnancy and Birth

Posted by: Mommy-Go-Round Guest Blogger on Sep 10, 2014 in Babies, Parenting, Pregnancy

“It was inspiring. It made me realize that there is nothing that I could do that could trump that ever. You can run 10 marathons, but once you see your wife go through birth, that’s it, you know. She’s got you beat.”

That’s a quote from one dad who witnessed his wife give natural birth to their baby girl. Labor can be a difficult, sometimes lengthy and most often painful experience for women, but what can dads do to help the process?

Getting a “Hold” on Breastfeeding

The following post was written by the Lactation Service Department at Woman’s Hospital.

Ask anyone who has ever done yoga. Holding one position for a lengthy period of time can be so taxing that it’s a complete exercise program.

Similarly, you could probably ask any breastfeeding mom about the aches and pains of holding one breastfeeding position for multiple daily feedings without ever changing it up.

If your breastfeeding hold is uncomfortable or ineffective, consider trying some of the different options below; you never know what will work until you try!

Happy First Birthday, Audrey

birthday1Saturday came and went like every other normal day for most. But it was so much bigger than that at our little house on the corner. It was Audrey’s first birthday! My little one is now 1 and as much of a toddler as ever. I worried that the day would bring bittersweet, sappy memories, but instead it brought fun, laughter and a lot of sugar. The long days of this short year have added up to so many memories, things I had already forgotten, and remembered again while perusing old photos.

After trying for years to get pregnant with no success, Randy and Nicole thought their dreams of starting a family were close to the end.

As a last-ditch effort, the couple sought out fertility treatment at Woman’s Hospital. They admittedly didn’t know much about the treatment process before stepping foot in the fertility doctor’s office. But those steps changed their lives forever.
