Gettin my rebel on.
Missing you!
Love this!
Hey y'all, Therese and I are currently struggling with my insurance company to get payment for our recent homebirth with midwife (CNM) and doula. Have any of you gone through this process recently, especially with BCBSTX? I requested and got an in network exemption prior to the birth, but now they're disallowing parts of the claim (midwives don't care for babies, and their supplies aren't covered, as everyone knows) and severely underpaying other parts of the claim. The kicker to me is that beween midwife and doula the total barely scratches 8k. So I plan to appeal based on 1. homebirth midwife care is safe and effective 2. same for doula care 3. cost of midwife and doula is reasonable compared to other homebirth providers in the area with comparable qualifications and 4. cost of an uncomplicated, vaginal delivery in an in-network hospital in the area would have been significantly (probably multiples) higher. Can anyone help with references to studies validating homebirth midwife and doula care, and also how to go about establishing cost comparisons? Especially for hospitals, my understanding is that getting cost estimates is a bit like pulling teeth. Thanks for your help!
We had such a wonderful time tonight, and it’s apparent the kids did too!!! Thank you so much for this opportunity to get out and have adult conversation Kathleen, Joli and PJ! The girls were so awesome with the kiddos too, I know it was a great time when they’re happy when I get there and pass out before we get to I-45!! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!! I needed this so much, we all did! Love this tribe!! 😘😘😘
Looking for a recommended full time Nanny. Only needed 4 to 6 weeks in Houston. Thanks!
Hey lovelies. Anyone you know in need of tiny baby clothes (preemie-3-6 month)? I'm going through stuff Olive has outgrown and am having all the feels. It would help knowing they're going to a good home... (Also have some misc bottles and a Medela pump that I could ship your way...)
Will anyone be in the office today for donations?
Have a friend asking where she can donate a breast pump for Harvey victim- any ideas?
Great 1 year anniversary party! Congrats Kathleen Wilson and Joli Ammons! We love you! Here's to many more!!

Child birth education for the woman in charge!

Unlike James Dean, we are Rebels WITH A CAUSE! We aren’t here to ruffle feathers or put on a show. We are here to remind you that you are in control of your healthcare. To improve the establishment by putting the reins back into your hands! You don’t have to choose between the red pill and the blue pill. You can choose the green pill, or even no pill! By showing up here today, you are saying that no one but you controls your body, your baby, or your birth. Not your Mom, not your Aunt Cindy, and not even your Doctor. Take back your body! Own your birth! Be your own advocate! Get in touch with who you are and what you want! Have your baby your way! After years of being doulas and teaching from all kinds of different philosophies, but never fully connecting with any one method, we knew…we had to find a new way. We love the idea of so many different techniques, but none seemed comprehensive enough. There always seemed to be some pivotal part that needed filling in. The biggest missing piece was that none of these programs acknowledged the other. Each one was peddling the next big cure to all of your labor woes. We have found, that finding real birth satisfaction and empowerment comes from having plenty of different tools at your disposal. When one thing doesn’t hold up under the pressure of the real deal, you shouldn’t be left floating down sh*t creek without a backup paddle! When women and their partners own their birth, they have the power to change the game when the situation calls for it! Pregnancy is not the experience. It is the beginning of the experience. Pregnancy is the beginning of a long journey into parenthood. Labor is a time of learning. As the birthing woman you are learning endurance, patience, tolerance, and acceptance. You are learning to put your baby before yourself and it is a hard lesson. As a partner you are learning to help someone who is struggling. You are learning to witness pain and you are learning what it feels like to be helpless. You are both learning surrender. This is what it means to become parents. These are the first steps into a lifetime of giving, grieving, and rejoicing. A positive birthing experience is different for everyone. For some people it means an un-medicated vaginal delivery in a field of daisies. For other women it means a planned surgical birth in a hospital. Neither of these choices is wrong or better than the other. They both have merits. Both of these women are mothers and their choices are valid and should be respected by her peers and family. The goal is to learn how to have the most empowering and positive version of your personal birth story. As Americans we are used to giving up our healthcare decisions to people who know better than us. People who have more education. People with power. Obstetrics is one of the few times a woman is admitted to the hospital, watched and treated as if a catastrophe may happen any moment, even though she is completely healthy. Here in the United States our national surgical birth rate is a staggering 32.8% according to the CDC. That means one in three women will not deliver vaginally in the United States. The World Health Organization recommends cesarean rates be less than 15%. One way to bring your personal risks down for unwanted intervention is to take back your birth. You have to empower yourself with knowledge, but not just book learning here, folks. You need to know yourself. You need to understand the hardship that is childbirth: the emotional, the physical and the abstract. You need to know and understand your fears and your strengths. You need to speak the language – which might as well be Latin to most families. You need to pack your tool bag with an arsenal – maybe you will use one tool, but have every tool: relaxation techniques, hypnosis, music, aromatherapy, acupressure, rebozo techniques, positioning techniques, how to use the hospital bed or squat bar, water therapy, a birthing stool, a birth ball, massage... We could go on. Lastly, and most importantly, you have to learn to say: No, thank you! Rebel Birth was created by Kathleen Wilson and Joli Ammons – Doulas!

Mission: To teach pregnant women and their support teams how to own their birth by making informed decisions about their care. Not only when it comes to the system, but also choosing the tools that will work for the woman and for her family.

Choosers: IVF to Adoption w/Joli (recorded 8/13/19)

Choosers, where we explore different pregnancy outcomes and birth choices.

Joli and I are buddies, in the same TLC Doula Group, and in general love each other. When she was going through her IVF journey I wasn't really hip to what all that entailed, so if you aren't either this might be to much deets.

She's got two little ones now, and she feels like they were always meant to be part of her family. So layers of emotions there! Thank you for listening!

Bereavement room opens at Texas Children’s The Woodlands hospital NICU as a place of peace

My daughter died in 2001 and I remember just needing a place to escape to and there was only this little tiny room with a box of kleenex on the table. We all sat where we could . My husband on the floor with his knees curled up. My mom in front of him and I stood with my back against the door so no one would come in. We could have used a room like this.
