Exclusive Interview: Dr. Shahin Ghadir Talks About Fertility

This week Celebrity Baby Scoop got the chance to talk to Dr. Shahin Ghadir all about fertility. He has worked with various celebrities including Mercedes “MJ” Javid from Shahs of Sunset. Dr. Ghadir feels like he was lead to work in this field. During his residency, he got the chance to do a fertility rotation. He realized how working in this field could be life-changing and decided to go that way with his career. So many people can’t have children and a fertility doctor is the only way that being a parent can become a reality for them.

When it comes to his clients, Dr. Shanin Ghadir has seen several celebrities, but he has clients of all types. People from around the world come to see him due to recommendations they have received.

Dr. Ghadir explained how there used to be a bit of a stigma around using a fertility doctor. It isn’t like that at all now, though. Instead, it is more accepted and in some areas even considered “hip.” People aren’t afraid to admit that they have seen a fertility doctor to get assistance with getting pregnant.

He explained that there have been a lot of advancements in the field of fertility over the years. One big thing is that they can now do genetic testing on an embryo. There have also been advances where they can find out when the best time is to place the embryo in the uterus. As Dr. Shanin Ghadir explained, this can really increase the chances of a pregnancy happening after fertility treatments.

If you want to get fertility treatments but can’t afford them, Dr. Shanin Ghadir can help you out with it. His office has financial counselors available to help clients figure out how to make it work for them. He is even working on a charity called “Fertility for All.” It is a very new charity, so they have lists of other charities that help people get grants or loans for fertility treatments.

They also offer a lot of information on their website to help people with financial options and to get more information on fertility treatments. Dr. Shanin Ghadir has made it clear that he wants to help his patients to become parents.

Dr. Shahin Ghadir has an Instagram page where you can keep up with the latest updates on what he is doing in the fertility world.

Tis the Season to Conceive

We are in full swing for the holiday season. With Thanksgiving under our belt next up is getting out that Christmas tree, sending out those holiday cards, checking off our gift giving list and conceiving. Yup, you heard right, the holiday season is statistically the most popular time to conceive.

Data journalist Matt Stiles compiled stats from the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics and the U.S Social Security Administration from the years 1994 and 2014. What Stiles concluded from his investigation is the most common American birthdays fall on September 9, 19 and 12. He also concluded that 9 out of the 10 most popular birthdays fall in the month of September.

So if mid-September is the most popular time to give birth in the United States and we count backward and do our math right that means the child was conceived during the holiday season. So why is that? More Americans take time off from their jobs and spend it at home with their loved ones between Thanksgiving and Christmas. While it’s notorious for being a bustling time that can be stressful for most a large part of Americans find it to be the perfect time to reconnect with their mate.

On the flip side, the holiday season isn’t a popular time to give birth. According to Stiles research Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day are the least popular days to welcome your newborn. That’s due to the likelihood that  OB-GYN’s aren’t going to schedule a C-section on the major holidays unless medically necessary of course.

Who says the holidays are a stressful time filled with family dynamics, long distance travels and deadlines to meet? So remember to take some time out for your partner and enjoy a cup of eggnog together. Because according to hard fact data, that kiss under the mistletoe really does work.  ‘Tis the season to conceive as it were.

How To Take the Perfect Family Holiday Card

‘Tis the season for getting your family together for that perfect holiday shot for that holiday card. For mother’s out there this can be anything but fun. A lot of mamas put so much pressure on themselves and their kiddos to get that perfect holiday shot that will end up in your 100 plus closest friends mailbox’s. So how do you nail this year’s holiday pic and have some fun with it? Here are a few tips that can make this year’s family photo shoot a little more relaxed

Make Sure Your Timing is Spot On

As a mother, you know when your kids are at their best. If they aren’t a morning person don’t schedule your holiday shoot first thing in the morning on a Saturday. If they get hungry easily, bring snacks for them to munch on so when you arrive at your location they are well fueled and ready to vogue.

Theme

To make things flow easier pick out what all of your family members are going to wear ahead of time. Have everything laid out the night before so there isn’t any last minute freak out session of where is my sweater? Coordinating outfits can be a fun added touch to your holiday shoot and adding some props into the mix can help keep your kiddos preoccupied during the photo session.

Reward

Bribe your kiddos if you need to, don’t worry we won’t tell Santa. But seriously, tell your munchkins that if they behave and cooperate during the shoot they can get a treat afterward like that favorite ice cream flavor or candy. Also, keep ammunition on deck if your children start to have a meltdown in the middle of your shoot. Your kiddos favorite candy or stickers in your back pocket may come in handy.

Take a Deep Breath

Just remember that this is a fun activity for you and your family and to not take it too seriously. Let your kids let loose a bit during your shoot. And remember, like life, your holiday shoot is probably not going to go exactly as you planned. So take a cue from your little ones and have fun with them, usually, the best shots are the candid ones.

Trend Alert: Umbilical Jewelry is the Latest Trend Among New Mothers

Are you wondering what to do with your newborn’s umbilical cord? Well instead of putting it in a safe place or in your newborn’s keepsake box why not make it into a piece of jewelry that you can wear every day? That’s right, you heard right. The latest trend among new mamas is sending your child’s umbilical cord away and having it made into a piece of jewelry.

It may sound crazy and hard to believe that there’s a market for such of thing but we found out there is multiple jewelers that will do such a thing. Why not right? Women today are saving their placenta from birth and making it into capsules for postpartum recovery.

Ruth Avra, 39, a trained metalsmith and jeweler is one of the many skilled jewelers out there making umbilical jewelry. After the birth of her son in 2012, Avra thought of the idea and started designing the latest trendy keepsake jewelry.

Ava’s friend gave the jeweler the stump of her baby’s umbilical cord in 2011. At the time, Avra didn’t know what to do with it so she held onto it. “She asked me to make something out of it, but I had no idea what to do,” Avra recalled. But it wasn’t until her son was born a year later that she had that ‘Aha’ moment.

Avra was mesmerized at the vast difference between her son’s umbilical cord and her friend’s. “These are really organic pieces—no two are anywhere alike,” she says. Avra got to work making a necklace for herself and her friend. She loved the challenge of the unique differences between the two that forced her creativity flow to go beyond her bounds. Before she knew it, “suddenly I was making them for all my friends,” she says.

Avra now sells them online and has even expanded her line and now does jewelry with your child’s baby teeth, baby’s first hair clippings, hospital bracelets, and cremated ashes.
