The Challenge of Raising Healthy Babies

I always imagined myself having children. I imagined the beautiful family I would one day have, and how magical it would be when I had a baby. And though I feel so fortunate to have all that, I never really knew all the hardship and worry that comes along with becoming a mother. I had a very easy and healthy pregnancy. It’s crazy; I never imagined how much really goes into taking care of your child to make sure they are healthy from the moment you find out you are pregnant. Hector and I did so much research on so many topics to make sure I was being as healthy as possible and in preparation for the arrival of our baby.

You may not realize it, but most of us are lucky to have the resources to educate ourselves before, during and after pregnancy. Regardless of my healthy pregnancy, Enzo was born with complications and spent 3 weeks in the NICU. As you can imagine, it was a painful and horrific experience. What I can say is that everything we have been through forced us to educate ourselves and truly put our child’s health first. We do everything in our power to make sure Enzo is growing strong and staying healthy, both physically and emotionally. I have come to appreciate what we went through and most importantly, I know how lucky we are that we had support from friends, family incredible doctors and nurses. We had so many resources at our disposal to get our baby back on track but many are not as fortunate. They do not have any resources available to prepare for a pregnancy, or the complications and potential disease that can come after.

That is why I am so proud to partner with Johnson & Johnson. You may know them for their famous baby products, but you probably have no idea about all the amazing work they do in communities around the world. Did you know they partner with MomConnect in South Africa to send vital healthcare messages via mobile phone to expectant and new moms living in areas without ready access to neonatal services? That can be life-saving for a lot of pregnant women in underserved areas. They also recently partnered with UNICEF to train over 3,000 midwives and medical workers in underserved regions of Vietnam.

Last year, Johnson & Johnson launched the GenH Challenge. It is a global social venture competition dedicated to finding solutions for some of the world’s toughest health problems—such as infectious diseases that affect babies and preterm birth—in order to produce the healthiest generation ever. As a mother who has already been through a lot health-wise with her child, I am happy that there are companies and organizations like Johnson & Johnson that are supporting expectant mothers and their babies and contributing to a healthier future for our children.

    Cheers to healthy, happy babies! I’m a mom of three myself and discovering the importance of breathing through the nose to promote positive facial development. Unfortunately, at age 12 we have discovered it later than I would have liked to. Please look into mouth breathing and how to train children to breath through their noses, instead of their mouths. I dove into the research and studies myself since a lot of doctors like to wait and see and then suggest surgery in my son’s case. Fortunately, I found a dentist who can help us promote positive facial growth and our first step was to find an oro-myo facial therapist. The therapist will be able to direct you to other doctors who are in line with nasal breathing and open air ways in cases before 5 years of age braces can be avoided. Happy, healthy breathing!
