[ARTICLE] Do you google your child’s illness? Courier Mail March 2015

GOOGLE is stripping the quackery out of search results.

It has called in doctors to check results before they hit the top of the rankings.

Australian Medical Association Queensland president Shaun Rudd said most of his patients had visited “Dr Google” before seeing him.

Gold Coast midwife Amanda Bude has seen a big spike in parents turning to the internet over their babies’ health issues.

“I do get concerned,” she said.

“One of the main things I hear that came from the internet is the idea that if you put a glass jar on a rash and it disappears it is just virus-related, but if the rash doesn’t disappear then you need to seek medical help.

“Or parents take photos of rashes and post on Facebook asking other parents to diagnose.”

Amanda Bude featured Midwife expert March 2015.

Amanda Bude- Member of The Australian HypnoBirthing Steering Committee.

The Mongan Method of HypnoBirthing® is the longest running community dedicated to using hypnosis in childbirth. It was founded in the United States in early 1989 by Marie “Mickey” Mongan, who is a licensed counselor and former dean of a small women’s college. The Mongan Method of HypnoBirthing® is the pioneer and leader in birth education with hypnosis.

Several decades and thousands of classes later, HypnoBirthing® is the most widely used childbirth hypnosis program in the world. Today, there are HypnoBirthing® practitioners in 46 countries around the world who are helping women become aware of the benefits of calm, instinctive birthing for themselves and their babies.

Australian families have been supported in their birth choice for over 14 years. HypnoBirthing® has spread nationwide catching the interest of other professionals all impressed by the birth experiences they were hearing and witnessing with HypnoBirthing® – the Mongan Method.

HypnoBirthing is now recognised throughout Australia as the Gold Standard of Childbirth Education, and has been implemented into public and private hospital antenatal education programmes due to its credibility and ongoing research success. Often as the only eduHBSealcation program offered.

The HypnoBirthing® Institute has appointed an experienced and professional team to lead Australia and to ensure that families and practitioners have the most relevant education and support. This team is called the Australian Steering Committee. I am so very proud to be a part of the Australian Steering Committee and to continue teaching this childbirth education to families, Australia wide.

Melatonin has been the latest “natural” sleep medication trending among sleep-deprived parents. But new research has just emerged warning against its use on babies.

What are some risk-free alternatives to using melatonin?

Earlier this year Rebel Wylie spoke to Gold Coast sleep expert Amanda Bude who recommended five things parents can implement every day to help switch their children’s brains from alert to snooze, without the use of drugs;
