Consumers arespending more and get lower-quality healthcareresults.
If your that person that feels like when you go to your doctor’s appointment it’s rush like you’re cattle and they are moving the herd out as fast as possible. Well great news! That’s what’s great about concierge healthcare advocacy, you’re made a priority and your doctor has to give you what you pay for. Time. This is a excerpt of a article I read talking about concierge healthcare.
Consumers are no match for a healthcare system that can seem complex, inefficient, and expensive, and the employers offering their health insurance often are the ones who pay the price in higher premiums and medical expenses. Some are seeing the benefit in health plans that offer more handholding to guide consumers through the experience.
Concierge-type services have been offered for years, but they often were seen as a perk for top-tier clients, a way to help the lucky few avoid the hassle that the typical consumer experiences in the healthcare system. The outlook is changing now that employers are seeing the potential for better care and reduced costs by offering personalized assistance to the rank and file worker. (Healthcaremedia)

I enjoy helping women bring happy and healthy babies into this world, I’m a little more extensive than your average doula. But I’ve included a excerpt from a article in Health magazine about the benefits of hiring a doula.
What are the benefits of having a doula?
For starters, they can help improve the birth experience for any spouses or support persons present at the birth of your baby. “One of the unexpected benefits of having a doula support your birth is getting your partner involved to the extent that you’re both comfortable. I’ve had clients whose spouses were a little standoffish—they want to be helpful, but it’s really hard to see someone you love in pain,” shares Vanessa Hawke, certified doula at Bebo Mia, a training and mentorship organization for birth workers. “Their first instinct at birth may be to suggest pain meds—which, sometimes, is totally fine. But if the client has already said they don’t want any pain meds, having someone bringing it up a lot can feel discouraging and frustrating.”
Everyone’s talking about saving America’s middle class. But just who exactly falls into this group?
That’s actually a much more difficult question to answer than it seems. While some experts define the middle class by income, others define it by lifestyle. Still others say it’s a state of mind.
Let’s Take A Look
I’ve spoken to some who’ve considered themselves middle class and they are a bit angry right now because their income has declined but they make to much right now to receive government services and not quite enough to provide adequate resources for their family. So yes, what happens to those in the middle.

Most people assume when a woman has a baby it over and she comes home with her baby and life moves on. Well that’s not exactly how it happens, yes she does come home with her baby but she also starts having different emotional issues that are sometimes called baby blues but could also be symptoms of postpartum depression.

However, in regard to maternal outcomes, we typically rank last when compared to other wealthy nations. Please take a look at how the United States rank compared to other countries.
An obstetrician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), Audra Meadows, MD, MPH spends much of her time advising women on how to optimize their health before, during, and after pregnancy to prevent low birth weight and other problems. Here are 12 tips from Dr. Meadows to help you ensure a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
#1 – Eat right
Eating a healthy diet is especially important for pregnant women. Your baby needs healthy food, not sugar and fat. Eat plenty of colorful fruits and vegetables, whole grains, calcium-rich foods, and foods low in saturated fat.
#2 – Get your vitamins
Make sure to get plenty of folic acid and calcium. You can get these and other necessary vitamins and minerals from food and a standard multivitamin. Spinach, oranges, broccoli, and kidney beans are rich in folic acid. Milk, yogurt, and spinach are packed with calcium. A daily prenatal multivitamin, however, can help ensure you get the right amount. Ask your doctor about taking a daily prenatal vitamin.
#3 – Stay hydrated
A pregnant woman’s body needs more water than normal. Aim for eight or more cups each day.
#4 – Proper prenatal care
Women should get regular prenatal care from a healthcare professional. Mothers who don’t get regular prenatal care are much more likely to have a child with low birth weight. If available, consider group prenatal care. For more information visit Brigham Health Hub
What to do when you feel something isn’t right?
If you are at your prenatal appointment are even after and something just doesn’t feel right with yourself and/are your unborn child, either tell the doctor immediately or call the doctors office and explain what’s going on. If you don’t feel that sense of urgency from your doctor, go to the emergency room and explain to the doctor what’s going on. Advocacy is the key. If that doesn’t work contact us we will fight for you and your unborn child, Advocacy is key to a healthy delivery. The Milford Group http://www.themilfordgroup.org
