Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement toward more healthy, affordable, and sustainable food. This is a national grassroots mobilization backed by some of the most prominent voices for energizing the food movement. Each year in October, people gather at events big and small and from coast to coast in homes, schools, colleges, churches, city halls, farmers’ markets, supermarkets, and elsewhere to raise awareness about food issues and advocate for change.

Thrive OB-GYN opens in PoolerCongratulations to the dynamo-sister team at Thrive Obstetrics & Gynecology on the opening of their SECOND office in our area. Thrive is now seeing patients at their new satellite office in Pooler, in addition to their Savannah practice in the Candler Professional Building.

The new Pooler practice is @ 114 Canal St. Suite 403 and is open Tuesdays & Thursdays.

Dr. Maryanna Barrett & Dr. Maria Paasch just opened their first practice in Savannah this past May. So we’re thrilled to see how well the community has responded to manner in which these two deliver health care with kindness, compassion and consideration.

Dr. Barrett and Dr. Paasch are identical twin sisters born and raised in Clarksville, TN. Growing up in a family of strong and nurturing women, both were drawn to the field of Women’s Health.

They attended medical school at The University of Tennessee in Memphis and completed their residencies at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. Dr. Barrett completed her training in 2009 and Dr. Paasch in 2010. Drs. Barrett and Paasch are board certified in Obstetrics & Gynecology.

While offering complete Women’s Health Care, they have a particular enthusiasm for obstetrics, including trial of labor after a caesarean section (TOLAC), minimally invasive surgery, and pediatric and adolescent gynecology. They, along with their husbands and children, have newly relocated from Hawaii to Savannah, to be close to family and to re-establish roots in their native South.

Their approach to care marries the science of modern medicine with the art of listening to each patient’s individual concerns. At Thrive Obstetrics & Gynecology, Dr. Barrett & Dr. Paasch believe healthcare is a collaboration between the patient and her provider.

Dr. Barrett & Dr. Paasch offer a healthcare alternative that provides you with options and encourages you to choose the approach that works best for your life. They want to help you to take charge of your own health and feel your best at every age. They want to help you thrive…

WHO: Coastal Health District/Chatham County Health Department Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program
WHAT: Mom and baby rally to celebrate Breastfeeding Month
WHEN/WHERE: 9 a.m., Monday, August 26, Chatham County Health Department
1395 Eisenhower Drive, Savannah (facing Sallie Mood)

WHY: In honor of Breastfeeding Month, the Coastal health District and Chatham County Health Department WIC programs and Breastfeeding Support Groups of Georgia are sponsoring a mom and baby rally from 9 to 11 a.m. on Monday, August 26 at the Chatham County Health Department.

The Chatham County Health Department and Coastal Health District are committed to helping mothers breastfeed their babies because breastfeeding is so important for good health. Breastmilk is easy to digest, with just the right amount of fat, sugar, water, and protein for a baby’s growth and development. Breastfed babies usually get sick less often, because breastmilk contains antibodies that can protect infants from bacterial and viral infections.

Free screening of documentary “The Business of Being Born,” Savannah

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

We are so jazzed to learn that Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah will host a FREE screening of the documentary film “The Business of Being Born”, 6 to 8 PM Wed. April 4, 2012.

The award-winning film will be followed by a discussion with local health professionals. (Fingers-crossed that among the childbirth issues discussed will be the lack of local OBs who will do VBACs)

The screening will be at University Hall, Room 156, Armstrong Campus, 11935 Abercorn St., Savannah.

“The Business of Being Born”  is about the implications of the medicalization of childbirth and the ways in which many women are turning away from invasive medical models of delivery. It examines modern models of child delivery in America and what some women are doing to take back their rights to birth.

This event, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Center for Public Health Media and Research , the Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health & the Armstrong Master of Public Health program. Contact Leigh Rich at leigh.rich@armstrong.edu  for more information.

Breast-feeding advocates will hold Savannah Nurse-In on March 5

Saturday, February 25th, 2012

Here’s a snippet from my column this week in the Savannah Morning News:

“We’ve all heard the sad-but-true accounts of nursing mothers in restaurants, shops, parks, even churches, being told — presumably by people not aware of the benefits of breast-feeding — that they cannot feed their babies there.

It’s beyond frustrating.

Which is why moms are organizing a Georgia Statewide Nurse-In. At courthouses and state buildings across the state, women will protest the stigma associated with public breast-feeding by nursing their babies. The Savannah Nurse In will be 10 a.m.-2 p.m. March 5 at City Hall.

Fueled by their personal stories of fielding rude remarks while nursing in public, moms organized this grassroots effort in support of a state bill in the works to better protect breast-feeding moms and their babies.”

Read the entire column here.
