One Born Every Minute
What's New About Delivery? Moms, Say "One Born Every Minute" Staff
One Born Every Minute is back for it's second season! Don't miss the season premiere tonight 10/9C on Lifetime.
With nearly forty years of combined experience, Dr Stu Jones, chief of women’s health and labor and delivery nurse manager, Mary Engleheart, of the Lifetime show, One Born Every Minute, have seen more than their fair share of births. So is there anything new under the sun when it comes to labor and delivery?
Turns out, there is. And the biggest difference, Dr. Stu and Nurse Mary say, is the moms.
Moms-to-be are much more educated and informed about the process and their options, they both said in a recent interview. Every week on the show, you can see a host of moms-to-be with all sorts of ideas and birth plans for their delivery. They have info and they are not afraid to share it. As a result, Dr. Stu and Nurse Mary say, that birth has become more of a collaborative process, and as long as the baby is safe, then it is all good!
Are they talking about you?
To make sure you're a modern, informed mama consider these six key areas that every mom should brush up on during pregnancy:
Diet and Nutrition: You are eating for two now, so make it good! Learn foods to eat and why? What foods can best support my health and my baby’s development?
Fetal Development: Get to know what's going on with your baby in each stage.
Childbirth Education: From Lamaze to The Bradley Method, get to know the childbirth method that works best for you.
Labor & Delivery: Learn about your options from preparing for natural delivery to understanding your pain management options.
Think Outside the Box: Investigate midwives and doulas, homebirths, waterbirths and hypnobirthing—it’s all a great way to learn how women around the world are having babies.
After Delivery: Prepare for breastfeeding, your own aftercare should you happen to have a C-section and life strategies for when baby comes home.
Of course, nothing can fully prepare you for your labor and delivery experience--check out the show and you'll see exactly what I mean. Every mom's delivery is different, and you'll see all sorts on One Born Every Minute airing Tuesdays at 10pm et/pt on Lifetime.
