For All Moms

We are sitting at lunch when my daughter casually mentions that she and her husband are thinking of “starting a family.” “We’re taking a survey,” she says, half-joking. “Do you think I should have a baby?” “It will change your life,” I say, carefully keeping my tone neutral. “I know,” she says, “no more sleeping […].....»»

Jewel Mische reveals she’s feeding baby Aislah from one breast only due to mastitis

Unlike most moms who say that breastfeeding their baby is a breeze, Jewel Mische's experience is different---but she is confident she will not give up. The Starstruck season 4 Ultimate Sweetheart revealed that she is exclusively feeding her baby daughter Aislah on one breast after contracting mastitis, which she necessitatedbreast surgery. Mische made the revelation in an Instagram post Friday. "It's an interesting concept, I was hesitant and honestly, the thought of it sounded kinda weird at first," Mische wrote. "Ultimately my concern was, will my baby get enough milk??" She also wondered why breastfeeding, which she considers as "natural," could be challenging too. The ac...Keep on reading: Jewel Mische reveals she’s feeding baby Aislah from one breast only due to mastitis.....»»

How nursing mothers can help protect their babies from food allergies—expert tips

August 1 to 7 marksWorld Breastfeeding Week 2018, celebrated every year to encourage and support breastfeeding to help improve the health of babies around the world. One way breastfeeding can boost a baby's health is by warding off food allergies. Catherine Field, a nutrition professor at the University of Alberta, says there are ways to make a mother's milk even better. "We know it's the perfect food, but it could be made more perfect by some of the things moms eat and do," said Field.

Mini-me dressing: The mother-baby pieces for matchy days

The saying, "Like mother, like child" doesn't just apply to the latter's physical appearance and attitude. Sometimes it pertains to their similarity in style---and many moms take it very literally. You've probably seen mothers and kids who are wearing matching or complementary clothing. Personally, I find myself fawning over how these ensembles come in miniature sizes. If you're a new mom or a mom-to-be who wants to do the same with their children, we found celebrity inspiration and items you can cop too. Happy shopping for you and your little one!

Yoga and cheesecake for new moms in plush Chinese ‘sitting centers’

Yoga class starts shortly, the pristine massage center is open for business and cheesecake is served on a platter of pastries and fruit. And then the muffled cry of a baby emerges down the hallway. The setting may resemble a five-star hotel, but this is a "sitting center" on Shanghai's outskirts where mothers pay up to 70,000 yuan ($11,000) a month to stay with their newborns. Chinese culture dictates that mothers confine themselves after giving birth, also known as a "sitting month". Such confinement was once widely practiced in many areas of the world and continues to be popular in other parts of Asia. But as incomes rise in China, the sitting month no longer ...Keep on reading: Yoga and cheesecake for new moms in plush Chinese ‘sitting centers’.....»»

From snipers to moms: World War II exhibit focuses on women

NATICK, Massachusetts --- The terrors of World War II impacted most of the world's women, both on the home and battlefronts. A new exhibition opening Friday at the International Museum of World War II in Natick, Massachusetts, highlights just that --- the important and sometimes unconventional roles women took on during the war. "It's about the human story," founder Kenneth Rendell explains. "We're thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase and honor women's service to the war effort." "Women in WWII: On the Home Fronts and the Battlefronts" is composed of more than 100 artifacts from the U.S., Soviet Union, Germany, Japan, France and Great Britain.

The five Super Moms behind your favorite athletes

The saying goes “For every great man, there is a great woman.” This holds true in the world of sports, where athletes lean on their moms during their development, through their success, and beyond. Remember when NBA superstar Kevin Durant of the Golden State Warriors received the MVP award for the 2013-2014 season? He offered his award to his mom for her dedication in bringing him up the right way. In the Philippines, our local athletes also cherish their mom as much as they cherish their wins and accolades. Let’s take a look at five super moms who have been caught by S+A’s cameras supporting their children game in and game out.   1.) Mozzy Ravena   But the plan is to show you that i understand. You are appreciated. . . . . . . Happy mother’s day @ravenamozzy ! A post shared by Kiefer Ravena (@kieferravena15) on May 12, 2018 at 4:39pm PDT Mozzy Ravena is always there for her kids. Mozzy Ravena is probably the most prominent sporting mom S+A has caught. Not only is she a former star for the UST Golden Tigresses, she is also the mom of the Ravena siblings who have made a mark in their respective UAAP sports. Kiefer, Thirdy, and Dani Ravena surely have one heck of a super mom that never tire from cheering them on and lecturing them about what it takes to be an ultimate athlete. When Ateneo plays, everyone is sure that Tita Mozzy will be there for her kids.   2.) Lydia De Vega-Mercado Former Filipina super sprinter and national track team mainstay Lydia De Vega-Mercado made sure to support daughter Stephanie's volleyball dream. The former national sprinter, who was considered the fastest woman in Asia during her heydays in the ‘80s, is also the mother of former star DLSU Lady Spiker and current Petro Gazz Angel Stephanie Mercado. While her daughter did not follow in her footsteps and pursued volleyball instead of athletics, it did not stop her from showing up in her Paneng’s games and celebrated her championships as if she just won in a World Championship for the 100m dash.   3.) Susan Teng     Congrats @jeronalvinteng for winning your second championship and being the finals mvp! Great way to end your college career! 👍 A post shared by jeric teng (@tengjeric) on Dec 7, 2016 at 4:21am PST Susan Teng is all out when it comes to supporting her sons during their collegiate careers, never mind that they went to different schools.  When it comes to former UAAP stars and brothers, Jeron and Jeric Teng, their father Alvin is mentioned more being a former professional basketball player. However, as much as the Teng brothers credit their dad for their love and development in the sport, they also heap as much love to their mother Susan, who has been with them every step of the way, starting to when they were still small basketeers.   4.) Pablita Valdez Pablita Valdez made a big decision in letting her precious Alyssa travel to Manila and embark on a journey towards volleyball stardom. Before her daughter even became a national sensation, Pablita, who was a teacher in Batangas, believed that Alyssa was in store for great things when she started playing volleyball. It is that belief that made her decide to bring the younger Valdez to Manila where she can hone her talent and play in tougher situations and competition. That decision has paid off in spades as the volleyball phenom was born and her star’s ascent was meteoric. Every step of the way, Mama Pablita was there for her and we couldn’t thank her enough for giving us an excellent and much-loved star.   5.) Marilyn Mollena It took them 13 years to be together, but for every spike and score, Marilyn Mollena was on the mind of the Lady Beast, Grethcel Soltones.  Mommy Marilyn was the reason why Grethcel Soltones became the “Lady Beast.” Young Grethcel decided to play volleyball during her formative years as she searched for her mom. She thought that it was the easiest avenue to meet her mother after 13 years if she played and got broadcast on TV. She soon got her wish for on her last year with the San Sebastian Lady Stags when Marilyn surprised the Lady Beast during the individual awarding ceremonies and the whole nation even got to witness the touching reunion on TV.    Catch more super moms and also super dads on ABS-CBN S+A as it continues to champion Filipino athletes and sports development through the coverage of sports events and the airing of inspiring features on teams and athletes.
