Acetaminophen Research

Acetaminophen Research

There is new research regarding the usage of acetaminophen (Tylenol) in infants/children by a team of scientists from Harvard University and Duke University.

Please print this out, share it with friends and discuss with your Doctor, nurses, etc, especially if they are recommending it for infant/child pain. It is important that everyone know that pediatric Tylenol, according to this research, is not safe for the developing brain and may be implicated in the autism epidemic.

New Mom’s Group at BirthWays

New Mom’s Group at BirthWays

Starting Tuesday May 2nd, it is a 6 week facilitated group for moms and their babies (0-4 months old) from 2:00-3:30 that runs Tuesdays from May 2nd to June 6th.
 
Each group starts with a check in and then go with the topics that arise from the group. Everything from green poop (is that normal??) to the shifting relationships we have with ourselves, our parents, our partners, our friends and our careers gets discussed.
For many moms it is one of the first places they feel safe venturing out on their own.
From Brooke C on Yelp: “The new mothers group hosted by Stacia has been such a wonderful experience for me. Stacia was such a support in creating a warm sharing space and helping build a real community of parents. I would absolutely recommend this experience to any and all new mothers!”
