A Good Healthy Beginning For Your Baby
MicroBirth is a 60 minute award-winning documentary, exploring the origins of the microbiome, the trillions of bacteria that live on and in us that could be critical for human health. This documentary was introduce by my new friend, Ms Kong Choon Yen whom we met in a workshop that both of us attended. Little did I know that Ms Kong a.k.a. Yen is a Certified Birth Doula, a Certified Infant Massage Instructor & a Certified HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator affiliated with the HypnoBirthing® Institute.
We started introducing each other and shared what business or services we are currently providing. She shared with me that she does speaking on topics like HypnoBirthing and this attracted me because I was looking for speakers for my upcoming Mother Industrialist Workshops.
We fixed our next appointment after our first short meetup and that was when Yen shared a lot about Hypnobirthing in the appointment. I was intrigued and wanted to find out more. So Yen invited me to her next event which is called ‘MicroBirth — Good Beginnings’. There was a segment during the event where we will watch a featured length documentary of 60 minutes and have a discussion about it. I registered for the event immediately because I am so curious what is this documentary all about.
On the day of the event, there were Birth Doulas, Holistic Practitioners, Nurses, Medical Professionals & Expectant Parents. It make me realise that even medical professionals are curious and want to learn more about this ‘MircoBirth’. After watching the documentary and the discussion together with the attendees, I began to understand the importance of this information and why it is called Good Beginnings. The documentary had changed the way I view Birthing. It gave me a deeper understanding of birth in a more scientific perspective as ‘MicroBirth’ shows the latest science which indicate that these interventions are affecting the development of a baby’s immune system. This will also affect the kids when they grew up. It explains the reasons why children are having all the childbirth illnesses such as asthma, Type-1 diabetes, obesity and other childhood health conditions.
These interventions are: used of synthetic oxytocin (Pitocin / Syntocinon) to induce or speed up labour, use of antibiotics, c-section, separation of mothers and babies preventing breastfeeding.

After the whole session, I realized the importance of sharing this knowledge and to raise this awareness with parents especially the new parents. So I invited Yen to be one of the speakers for my upcoming Mother Industrialist Workshops.
The purpose of this session is to raise awareness of how a birth procedure has a direct impact on the health of the child life long and the possibility of avoiding a caesarean section.
I believe that all new expectant parents want to create a good healthy beginning for their babies’ and at the same time they can be a part of reducing the chances of their children having all the childbirth illnesses such as asthma, Type-1 diabetes, obesity and other childhood health conditions.
This session is not just for parents, it is also suitable for families, Birth Professionals, Holistic Practitioners and anyone who is interested to learn more.
The next workshop on ‘MicroBirth’ will be on the 4th February 2018 from 3pm to 6pm and I have invited Yen to speak and share. It will be held at Beauty.Mums & Babies’s Yoga Room. Seats are limited so register now!
Yen will be covering another topic in this Mothering workshop on ‘Hypnobirthing — Is C-section the only birthing way?’
She will guide new parents and share with them what they need to know about giving birth in Singapore. She will be addressing the common myths of Pregnancy and ‘Is giving birth painful-where does this pain come from?’ What is the husband’s role? How can the husband support his wife? What types of Birth are there and what are your options in Singapore hospitals? Yen will shares how you can get support from holistic practitioners.
Dear Mommies, there is always a better way to give birth in Singapore and C-section is not the only way. Come and join us this Sunday, 4th February 2018 from 3pm to 6pm to discover the Art of Birthing.
