Breastfeeding is revolutionary ~ especially if your mother didn’t…your sisters or friends aren’t…or your work and other life circumstances make it difficult to support. All these scenarios are likely here in Kuwait where the exclusive breastfeeding rate at 3 months is only 12%. So the decision to breastfeed is counter culture, with large marketing industries and social pressures trying to convince you to do otherwise. For those of us who were raised by hippies…or at least mothers who believed everything that was natural was better (garlic paste under the feet or in drinks for illnesses, comfrey tea for congestion, homemade home-ground wheat bread)…it was a decision that was second nature. But if you are new to to breastfeeding, your decision could be revolutionary for you, your children, your sisters and friends, and everyone you influence. Read the rest of the article on Birth Kuwait.
Food Revolution Kuwait will be held on Saturday May 19th from 11am-7pm
Location: The Women’s Culture and Social Society.
Get the chance to meet local farmers and chefs, taste free organic nibbles and find out how to get the best food for you and your family!
By, Sarah Paksima Co-Founder BirthKuwait, Doula, Childbirth Educator and Prenatal Yoga Teacher

How are you going to participate?
These 26 ingredient burger patties are everywhere—in your fridge, at schools and at the supermarket. Always remember nothing beats fresh, home cooked meals.
A friend of mine who is a dietitian decided one day to buy a meal from McDonalds and leave it to see what happens to it after a couple of weeks. He posts pictures every once in a while to show us the progress and how the meal changes throughout time. After looking at the pictures you truly wonder what do they put in our food??! I’m going to share with you a few of his pictures. This is the meal after 2 months. He says that the meal still looks edible, it has hardened but no mold has appeared.
Is this what we want to feed our kids? Remember this the next time your decide to treat your kids to junk food!

I saw this post on one of my favorite blogs Play.Teach.Love today and thought It was well worth re-posting. I used to get a lot of emails asking about programs specialized for mommies to be in Kuwait and finally someone has went a head and started one.
Mellow Bumps is a 6 weeks program designed to provide support, information, and care to expecting Mum’s. The group is for women between 20 and 30 weeks gestation and is designed to reduce stress and anxiety whilst preparing for your new arrival! It is not only for first time Mum’s, but for all expectant Mum’s.
Research shows that stress in pregnancy can have adverse long-term effects on the well-being of the child. Additionally, stress, anxiety, and depression during pregnancy are strong indicators of post-natal mental health which can also have an impact on the child as it grows and develops
Through the group you will be given information about what your unborn child is able to do now and at birth, as well as information on their development through infancy. You will be given techniques and support which will allow you to continue your pregnancy in a positive manner and to be ready to develop a strong, secure relationship with your child in the future. We have also made links to other specialists here in Kuwait who we can hook you up with to provide nutritional, breastfeeding, and birthing advice.
The groups will be starting in January 2012 and will be run one morning a week at Soor Center for Professional Therapy and Assessment.
Please feel free to contact the Soor Center on 2290 1677. You can also contact the facilitator Dr. Rose Logan, directly on the following email address: email@example.com
