Case Study 4#- Mental Illness in The African American Community

In our society, we tend to push things under the rug and one of the things that we try to hind is Mental Illness in the Black Community. This is one of the biggest well-kept secret because for 1# Black people don’t want to talk about it and 2# our parents don’t educate us on the symptoms/signs of mental illness. Some of us can’t handle the pains of dealing with depression and unstable thoughts so we either take our lives or destroy the lives of others. If you are going through this please don’t feel alone because you’re not.

Case Study 2#- Reality Television vs Getting an Education in 2018

As a young black woman, I look in disbelief as our brothers and sisters are being betrayed on national television in a distasteful way. For some of them, reality television is their only way out, whereas influencers like Cardi B used her platform on reality television to change her life and the narrative of reality television stars. However, not everybody is a Cardi B and not everyone will achieve her success. Here is the hidden secret to succeeding as a Reality TV Star or you could just go to school and achieve your success another route. Your choice….. Hope you enjoy!!

Top of the Line Nurturing: Healthy Baby Essentials

Breastfeeding is a very special moment that is shared between a mother and her baby. The bond that’s developed spreads light into many moments to come, but for some moms, breastfeeding is not always easy. Let’s be honest a lot happens when you just had a baby and you have high expectations on yourself to breastfeed. This is a normal reaction when you’re a new mom. This is why having the right tools and support is essential for having a stress-free experience especially when you’re coming home from the hospital.

I’m a childbirth educator and I am aware the not every woman will breastfeed, reasons maybe fear, thinking they may not be able to produce enough breast milk, they don’t know which is the best breast pump to use and convenience also plays a big role as well. All of these emotions are normal too!

Being a new mom your main focus should be to remain healthy calm and relaxed. Thankfully we have friends that understand our pain, worries and our desires to giving our baby the best. The company called Healthy Baby Essentials is our counselors, adviser, and our friends and helping us find the best breast pump. Plus, the breast pumps are free, all you have to do is use your major Insurance to pay for the breast pump. The company will only need your insurance information that’s it! All you have to do is keep growing that healthy baby!

Care for your Breast Pump :

The Spectra S2 is a powered, breast pump to be used by lactating women to express and collect milk from their breasts. This Spectra S2 is intended for a single user. Before using the Spectra-Series breast pump for the first time, sanitize the breast shield kit in boiling water for 5 minutes. (Parts may bend if boiled for more than 5 minutes.)

 

 

What is the Spectra S2 breast pump :

The Spectra S2 is hospital grade quality with home grade availability. The pump runs off a dual piston motor which provides strong, efficient, and comfortable suction to each breast independently. It has fully adjustable speed and suction as well as a stimulation phase to encourage milk let-down. The S2 also remembers your last settings and will return to them when you start your next pumping session. As a bonus, Spectra has included a nightlight with 2 brightness settings for less disruptive late-night pumping. Spectra is owned, operated, and staffed by IBCLCs and they offer an exceptional a 2 year warranty on the pump and 3 month warranty on all parts.

Includes

  • 2 storage bottles
  • 24 mm flanges (may be exchanged for 28mm or 32mm at no charge if returned unopened)
  • Digital Display with last setting memory
  • Stimulation Phase
  • 2 setting nightlight

 

The main differentiation is based on the specific plan a mom chooses that may or may not have a deductible
Healthy Baby Essentials  are contracted with all Massachusetts major health insurance providers including masshealth (Medicaid) along with United Healthcare, Tricare and Aetna as of 8/1. If they are not contracted with a particular insurance provider they will relay another dme providers name so the mom can receive a pump.

Below is a review video of me demonstrating how to properly assemble the  Spectra S2 breast pump:

 

The experience that I had with Healthy Baby Essentials is a lifelong journey of wonders, they will be partnering with me as I continue to teach in my classes about breastfeeding and pumping. I want to thank everybody at Healthy Baby Essentials for caring so much about moms and letting them have a stress-free experience when it comes to finding the best breast pump, including offering consulting services to moms who have questions. I am completely in love with my Spectra S2 breast pump, this state-of-the-art machine is very convenient noiseless and has LCD lights so while your babies sleeping you can be reading your favorite book without even disturbing the peaceful sleep of your little angel.
