    • They need more information before they can process your claim.
    • This is not a covered expense.
  5.   Do not be discouraged. Prepare a new packet to resubmit to your insurance company for a secondary review,   and copy everything in the packet to the insurance company’s CEO explaining why you feel services should   be covered. In this resubmission packet, you should include the following:
    • Another copy of the receipt
    • A letter from you to the CEO explaining why you think you should be covered as well as why you felt the need for a doula and how you believe the doula was beneficial to your health
    • DONA’s position paper
    • Ask your doula to send you the following and include in your packet:
      1. A copy of her certification (if she is certified)
      2. Other credentials or relevant training
      3. A letter detailing her training and experience and what she did for you
  1.   If they refuse it, write a letter to Health Services requesting that they review the claim, as you feel it was a    cost-cutting measure and they should cover the most.
  2.   Be persistent. Make phone calls if necessary. If your claim is ultimately denied, cal and ask for a specific  reason why. If they refer to your policy, ask them exactly what clause and what wording in your policy excludes  doula services. They may not pay your claim, but they will consider it for the future

“I hope you felt the comfort in my words of love so deep. I hope you knew my hopes and dreams and what you meant to meIt’s so much more than words can say or what the eyes can see. Tiny hands and tiny feet. The most beautiful baby I ever did meet. As small as you were, the biggest part of my heart you hold. And that’s where it will remain until I’m grey and old. For a long time my skies have been so grey, And it’s hard to find words to say, But I’ll try now, I hope that’s okay. To me you are the breeze that softly whispers by and gently dries my tears. You’re the sun that lights my heart and mind and takes away my fears. You’ve  never truly left my love, you’re wrapped within my heart. A lifetime love, forever close, I know we’ll never part. I miss you.” -Aimee Jones

Still Birth- In the United States, the stillbirth rate is 5.9/1,000 live births. This means one out of every 160 deliveries ends in stillbirth.

Neonatal Deaths, Infant Loss- Neonatal death happens in about 4 in 1,000 babies (less than 1 percent) each year in the United States. Non-Hispanic black women are more likely to have a baby die than women of other races or ethnicities.

SIDS- About 2,300 babies in the United States die of SIDS each year.

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. A tough topic many are healing from. You are not alone 💕

Understanding Ectopic Pregnancies.

What is an ectopic pregnancy. 

A tubal pregnancy — the most common type of ectopic pregnancy — happens when a fertilized egg gets stuck on its way to the uterus. 

What causes ectopic pregnancy. 

It can be hard to pinpoint specific factors, but things like infection, inflammation in the tubes (PID), toxins within the body, and hormonal imbalance can cause the fertilized egg not to move swiftly down the fallopian tube. 

Early signs of an ectopic pregnancy include:

Light vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain, upset stomach, vomiting, sharp abdominal cramps, pain on one side of your body, dizziness, weakness, or pain in your shoulder, neck, or rectum.

The fertilized egg can't survive outside the uterus. If left to grow, it may damage nearby organs and cause life-threatening loss of blood. It is important to be seek medical intention immediately when suspected of this occurrence.

What is the treatment?

Depending on the severity of the situation treatment may include a medicine called methotrexate that is used to stop the pregnancy growing. Surgery is only performed when needed to remove the pregnancy, usually along with the affected fallopian tube.

Always remember that there are some things you just can’t control, but being aware of the state of your womb and taking the necessary steps to take care of your womb could help get a fertilized egg where it needs to be.
