“Birthing Experience Impacts Settling and Sleep in Babies”- Courier Mail 10th October 2019.

WOMEN who are referred to a residential centre for help with sleep and settling in baby’s first year are more likely to have had a distressing birthing experience.

New Australian research shows that 44 per cent of babies in attendance at the parenting centres had been resuscitated at birth and 20 per cent had been admitted to special care nurseries – close to five per cent more than the overall population.

Giving birth is a defining and transformative experience,” Queensland infant sleep specialist and midwife Amanda Bude told The Courier-Mail.

[ARTICLE] “Infant Sleep Myth Put To Bed At Last”- Courier Mail November 17th 2018

THE “gold standard” target that a baby should sleep through the night before the age of one has been smashed by experts.

The researchers examined whether infants who didn’t sleep for six or eight consecutive hours were more likely to have problems with physical skills, such as movement and dexterity, or mental development. They found no correlation.

The researchers also found no link between infants waking at night and mothers’ post-natal mood.

Queensland midwife and baby sleep consultant Amanda Bude said understanding the normal sleep needs and variations for babies after six months was important for reassuring parents.

[ARTICLE] “Pregnancy Weight Guidelines Spark Fatshame Fears”- The Courier Mail 5th November 2018

NEW clinical guidelines for pregnant Australians will put more focus on weight, a move slammed by maternity consumer advocates who fear women will feel fat-shamed.

A summary of the updated recommendations, published today in the Medical Journal of Australia highlights that health practitioners should offer pregnant women advice on weight, diet and physical activity and the chance to be weighed at each antenatal visit.

Gold Coast midwife Amanda Bude, who teaches private childbirth classes, said guidelines should focus on body mass index rather than weight.

“A high BMI of 30-35 at the first antenatal visit can alert pregnancy carers that a woman maybe at risk for complications in pregnancy, such as DVT, gestational diabetes and high blood pressure,” Ms Bude said.

[ARTICLE] “Grandparents Should Have Rules For Minding Your Kids”- The Courier Mail, August 5th 2018

 

MUMS and dads who use grandparents as babysitters are being advised to strike formal childcare agreements to avoid family meltdowns caused by lax discipline and standards.

Child experts say parenting techniques have changed so much over the decades that drawing up an official list of instructions and routines is necessary to ease parents’ fears and remove conflict.

 

Gold Coast midwife and baby sleep expert Amanda Bude says she comes across parents who worry that grandma will not adhere to sleep guidelines or that the child will be overheated.

“Instructions can bring peace of mind,” she said.

[ARTICLE] “Ask a GP: After birth: What Your First Period is Like” Body and Soul 11th April 2018

Among all these changes, you may wonder what happens to your periods after giving birth. Do they differ too?

Firstly, it can take ages for your first period to come back after giving birth.

In fact, if you’re breastfeeding exclusively, it could take six months or more before your period comes back, says midwife Amanda Bude from Groovy Babies. If you’re breastfeeding exclusively and drop down to two or three feeds every 24 hours, she says your periods may start again.
