In case you are unfamiliar with this fundraiser, No Child Wet Behind began as a small local event started by Northeast Doulas three years ago. When we realized how many families just in our surrounding area alone struggled with providing diapers for their small children, we knew we had to do something to change this.
No Child Wet Behind brings support to families in diaper need that otherwise goes unfunded by any government backed programs.
We set a goal to collect diapers to help our local diaper bank, now we have evolved into a nationwide foundation that assists hundreds of families and facilities all over the country.
It is so important to spread the word to further our reach so we need your support too! Here is how you can get involved.......Read more
Group B Streptococcus (GBS) is bacteria that can be present in the intestines, vagina and/or rectum. About 25% of all healthy adult women carry this bacteria. During pregnancy, GBS can cause urinary tract infections which can sometimes lead to preterm labor. Because it is possible to pass this infection to the baby during delivery, routine prenatal care includes testing for GBS. Most pregnant women who test positive for this bacteria (colonized) present no symptoms.
How can you get Group B Strep?
Group B Strep is not a sexually transmitted disease, you cannot get it from contact with food, water or touching a surface. It is not something you can catch from another person. Group B Strep is bacteria that normally lives in our intestines, vagina and rectum.
Morning sickness is one of the first pregnancy symptoms women notice as it most commonly begins around the 6 week mark. Morning sickness for most women stops around the 12th week of pregnancy. You might be thinking "6 weeks of morning sickness isn't that bad..." and although morning sickness does not negatively effect the baby, it can leave you feeling very, ill, stressed and uncomfortable.
