Breastfeeding as a First Time Mother – Sheena Schwartz

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in babies, Lifestyle, Parents, Uncategorized

When my son was 1 week old I started going to a support group called La Leche League (LLL) and talked to other women who were in the same position as me – struggling with breastfeeding. Any issue you can think of, someone there was going through it – inverted nipples, cracked sore nipples, painful latch, low supply.  Just going back to the group each week and discussing my pain and struggles gave me the strength I needed to make it through to the next week.  I had developed a bleb on my right nipple. It basically looks like a pimple on your nipple. (Talk about painful!) Our LLL leader suggested pumping on that nipple and nursing on the other while […]

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Family, Kids, Parents

How many times have you looked into your child’s eyes and said “I love you”? How many times have you watched your child disappear behind those big school doors and thought to yourself, ‘I hope they will survive the challenges that life has in store for them’? How many times have you cuddled your child to sleep, hoping he or she will have a happy and purposeful life lived to their full potential? I am convinced the answer is an infinite number of times! But what gives us permission to make those choices that allow us to live life passionately or indifferently, purposefully or without direction, actively or inactively? What gives us permission to make the choices that allow us […]

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Parents

Postpartum depression What does it feel like to have postpartum depression or postpartum anxiety?  What are the signs or symptoms? How do you know when you have it? And if you do have it, what should you do? POSTPARTUM   DEPRESSION Postpartum depression is a serious issue for many mothers. The birth of a baby can trigger a jumble of powerful emotions, from excitement and joy to fear and anxiety. However, it can also result in something you might not expect — depression.  Postpartum depression may be mistaken for baby blues at first, but the signs and symptoms are more intense and last longer, eventually interfering with your ability to care for your baby and handle other daily tasks. Symptoms usually […]

Boost Your Child’s Confidence in the F Word – These 10 Ways

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Family, Kids, Parents

Veronica Owusu-Byczkowska I had my share of struggles with the F word. Fortunately, time and experience open your eyes. I have come to understand the hidden beauty and necessity of this very little understood expression. But what if your child too is struggling with talk of the F word? F for FAILURE. As a parent, that raises my concern. “Argh! Mummy! I can’t tie my shoelaces! I can’t!” “Mum, I hate Maths!. I couldn’t answer the questions the teacher asked me!” “My project wasn’t accepted, I can’t do anything right!” “I didn’t make it into the football team.” “Mum, somebody stole my bike from the playground!!!” Are these few examples of our children’s misfortunes and frustrations signs of being a […]

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” ― Nelson Mandela I’ve been interning at Multikids Foundation for the past three months.

What makes Multikids unique is that it is Ghana’s first and only fully inclusive school, offering mainstream education as well as special education. Multikids combines specialist creative, academic and vocational teaching […]

My First Birthing Experience: Recollections of an Outwardly Composed but Secretly Traumatized Father – Martin Beeko

Posted on 10 CommentsPosted in Parents, Pregnancy Experience

The Surprise Sleepover The day started harmlessly enough. With about 4 days to go before our baby was 40 weeks, we went in for a regular check up only to be told by the doctor that my wife’s amniotic fluid was a little low and could be leaking. He wanted to play it safe and induce labor so we had to go home, prep and return to the hospital. The first induction process was not bad, but the second one got real, really fast. My wife went from pacing up and down with slight moans to screaming, crouching and generally not knowing what to do with herself. Meanwhile, all I could do was hold her while she looked into my […]
