Edikasyon ak sipò apre akouchman 

Putting Parents First

Atravè distribisyon pake swen apre akouchman nou an, anpil manm kominote a te eksprime bezwen pou plis edikasyon ak sipò pou moun ki gen gwosès ak apre akouchman. Nan yon efò pou kontinye sipòte bezwen byennèt repwodiktif fanm yo, Love Your Menses kontan pou l ofri yon edikasyon vityèl 8 semèn apre akouchman ak gwoup sipò pou moun Black and Brown ansent ak apre akouchman k ap viv nan Boston, MA.


Peryòd rekiperasyon apre akouchman an se tan kote yon moun retabli de chanjman enpòtan ki te fèt nan kò yo pandan peryòd prenatal la rive nan peryòd akouchman an. Fwa sa a trè kritik ak nesesè. Rechèch yo montre ke sipò sosyal yo pwouve efikas nan ede moun ki akouchman fè fas ak estrès sikolojik ak fizik nan peryòd apre akouchman an.  

Ane sa a, nou te sipòte 200 moun Nwa ak Brown ak yon pakèt swen apre akouchman. Se espwa nou pou elaji distribisyon nan lòt vil/vil atravè peyi Etazini ak globalman. 

Nan gwoup edikasyon ak sipò sa a pral genyen:

Sesyon edikasyon chak de semèn
Sèk sèk
Gwoup chat ak doulas apre akouchman ak OB/GYNs
Pake swen apre akouchman ak lòt kado


Pwogram nan ap fèt janvye 2022-me 2022.

1. Was postpartum education helpful?

Yes, the postpartum education I received was incredibly helpful. It provided valuable information and support that I needed as a mother, especially considering that this was my first time having a baby in the USA. The classes covered a wide range of topics, including breastfeeding, nutrition for infants, and the importance of self-advocacy in the healthcare system. These topics were not only informative but also practical, helping me feel more confident and prepared as a parent.

2. How has it contributed to your parenting, even though this is not your first baby?

Even though this was not my first child, the postpartum education classes were still highly beneficial. They gave me the opportunity to refresh my knowledge and learn about any new practices or guidelines specific to the USA. Additionally, it provided a supportive community of mothers from diverse backgrounds, which allowed me to exchange experiences and gain new perspectives on parenting.
The classes also emphasized the importance of self-care and mental well-being, which is crucial for parents regardless of whether it's their first or subsequent child. This focus on self-care has had a positive impact on my parenting by reminding me to prioritize my mental and emotional health, ultimately benefiting both me and my children.

3. What were the key takeaways from the postpartum education classes?

Some of the key takeaways from the postpartum education classes included:

*The importance of breastfeeding and normalizing nursing in public spaces.

The significance of nutrition and healthy food preparation for infants.

The value of advocating for oneself and one's child in healthcare settings.

*Building a supportive community of mothers from various backgrounds.

Creating a safe space for self-expression and vulnerability as mothers.

Understanding what to expect when having a baby in the USA, especially in terms of healthcare and cultural differences.

4. Would you recommend childbirth education to other moms?

Absolutely, I would wholeheartedly recommend childbirth education classes to other moms. These classes not only provide essential knowledge but also create a supportive and inclusive environment for mothers to connect and share their experiences. It's a valuable resource for both first-time parents and those, like me, who have had children before but are navigating new circumstances. Childbirth education helps build confidence and promotes positive parenting experiences.
