    BabyBeat… helping reduce the stress of pregnancy

    We all know that stress is a fact of life – and definitely more so when you are pregnant. Now you are not only stressing about yourself, the rest of your family and of course the rest of the world – you are also stressing (sometimes greatly) about this little unborn baby inside you.  Just being pregnant can cause a fair amount of stress, even when everything is going great with the pregnancy. Worry during pregnancy is not a huge problem – more, the problem is long term stress during pregnancy.

    Researchers have concluded that the stress hormone cortisol is found as early as the seventeenth week of pregnancy. They also measured the amounts of cortisol in the mother’s blood. When levels of cortisol were found to be higher in the mother, they were also higher in the amniotic fluid levels. Normally, cortisol helps the body deal with stress appropriately. However, long term exposure for a fetus is unknown. We know that long term exposure in adults can lead to depression, illness and exhaustion. This then can lead to poor health including high blood pressure, ulcers and heart disease.

    Studies have shown that cognitive functioning of the baby can be affected, even later in life. They have shown that babies with higher cortisol exposure levels in utero had lower IQs at 18 months. Others have indicated that this stress may also lead to an increased risk of developing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

    This certainly does not prove that every little amount of stress you have during pregnancy is going to harm your baby. It is recommended to do things that lower your stress level. Try to stay relaxed as much as possible during your pregnancy. This is where BabyBeat can help. The BabyBeat Fetal Dopplers all allow you to listen in to your growing baby while in utero. The peace of mind that is given from hearing your baby’s heartbeat is unmeasureable. The feeling of joy at hearing the thumping of that little heart beat can not be compared. Of course, hearing your baby’s heartbeat is not the only indicator of fetal well-being. You need to continue to make note of fetal movement and other indicators your doctor has you noting. So, if you need a little “stress relief” during your pregnancy, just give BabyBeat a try!

    Mother’s Day – What does it mean to us mothers?

    Mother’s Day  is an annual holiday that recognizes all mother’s – living and dead, motherhood and maternal bonds in general. It also celebrates all the positive contributions that women have made to society. It is celebrated in different months around the world – usually in March, April or May (but does spread throughout the year in different countries). In the United States it is celebrated on the second Sunday in May.

    Mother’s day in the US was created by a woman named Anna Jarvis in 1908 as a day to honor one’s mother.  Jarvis wanted to accomplish her mother’s (Ann Jarvis’) dream of making a celebration for all mothers. Anna kept promoting the holiday until President Woodrow Wilson made it an official national holiday in 1914. At first, people observed Mother’s Day by attending church, writing letters to their mothers, and eventually, by sending cards, presents, and flowers. With the increasing gift-giving activity associated with Mother’s Day, Anna Jarvis became enraged. She believed that the day’s sentiment was being sacrificed at the expense of greed and profit. In 1923 she filed a lawsuit to stop a Mother’s Day festival, and was even arrested for disturbing the peace at a convention selling carnations for a war mother’s group. Before her death in 1948, Jarvis is said to have confessed that she regretted ever starting the mother’s day tradition.

    Mother’s Day has continued to grow in its commercialism. It is now the most popular holiday to dine out in the United States. And telephone lines record the highest volume on this day.

    So maybe this mother’s day is a good time to look beyond the commercial aspect of the holiday – and look again at the roots. To celebrate all mother’s. To thank mother’s for their giving and nurturing. To look at our own mothers and mother-figures in our lives and what ways they have changed and added to our lives. And to give them thanks!
