February Meeting

Thursday, February 26th at 7pm

In the United States alone, each year 26,000 babies are born still, and 18,000 families experience neonatal loss (within the first 28 days). Behind this startling statistic are the faces and hearts of families affected by the tragic loss.

Guest speaker Cindy Haggerton will share with us how she has persevered through the loss of their son, Evans at 33 weeks due to Potter’s Syndrome and will be joined by Trina Lozano, who specializes in infant loss. As a birth worker herself, Cindy has helped other families walk through their loss journey, before and after her son’s short life.

Meeting will be held at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in the Medical Education & Training Building.
1000 Montgomery St.
Fort Worth, Texas

Parking and main entrance are on Bunting Street.

Please remember that regular meetings are only for babies who are content to stay quietly in your lap or in a carrier for the duration of the meeting.

Thanks so much for your cooperation!

January Meeting

 

Join us on January 22, 2015 at 7pm as we welcome Dr. Heather Bartos, from Be. Women’s Health & Wellness, to speak about Vaginal Birth After Cesarean in North Texas. Dr. Bartos has been board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology since 2008. She is also certified by the International Board of Lactation Consultants.

“Per the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) is a reasonable and appropriate choice for most women with one prior cesarean and for “some women” with two prior cesareans. Being pregnant with twins, going over 40 weeks, having an unknown or low vertical scar, or suspecting a “big baby” should not prevent a woman from planning a VBAC.”

“45% of American women are interested in the option of VBAC, yet 92% have a Repeat Cesarean Section (RCS). Some women chose their RCS or it was medically necessary. Others felt like they didn’t have much of a choice for numerous reasons including hospital VBAC bans; immense social pressure; or the misrepresentation of VBAC risks.” ~www.vbacfacts.com

The January meeting will also be the official release of the 2015 Texas Birth Networks Resource Guide.

Meeting will be held at the University of North Texas Health Science Center,
1000 Montgomery St.,
Ft Worth, Texas
in the Medical Education & Training Building, Room 111.
Parking and main entrance are on Bunting Street.
