Hola Mi Gente!

Qué sabes de Discovery Familia? Nada? Well…It’s an organization that has launched a new initiative called “Camino al Bienestar” which provides Hispanic women with important health and wellness information throughout the year. I truly believe it is so important to educate ourselves about our health as Latina women. There is nothing more important than our health and the health of our babies. Camino al Bienestar is designed to target a specific health topic each month.  Prenatal care, skin care, breast cancer, men’s health, fertility and mental health are just some of the subjects that will be covered this year.  Each topic will be showcased in Discovery Familia programming and in informative capsules presented by Dr. Selene Velasco, as well as on the site Dr. Selene Velasco is Discovery Familia’s health expert. She brings to Discovery Familia years of experience in the field of general medicine with specialties in Nutrition and Chronic Diseases (diabetes and hypertension). She completed her degree in Family Medicine, with a special interest in women’s health, at UCLA. She has also practiced international medicine and was at the epicenter of the H1N1 influenza outbreak in Mexico City, where she has traveled frequently to provide primary care to underserved communities. The initiative also includes a special collaboration with the March of Dimes foundation and songstress Thalía to spread the message.

Despite the rapid increase of the Hispanic population in the United States, it is estimated that 25% of Hispanic women don’t receive prenatal care during the first trimester of pregnancy. During the month of March, Discovery Familia’s ‘Camino al bienestar’ campaign is dedicated to informing on the importance of prenatal care.

Embarazadas sin control 1

The series premiere of EMBARAZADAS SIN CONTROL is on March 15th at 10PM EST/PST. The show follows a team of women embarking on a tough goal—to convince a group of pregnant women with bad habits (such as over-eating, drinking and smoking) to change their lifestyles before giving birth. It’s incredible that in this day and age that we have to have programs like this to explain to someone that they should not be smoking or drinking when they are having a baby. It’s the most important thing you will ever do in this world to bring a life into this world and you want them to be a healthy baby. It’s so important to practice impeccable prenatal care when you are pregnant! It shocks me to see women who are pregnant smoking as who doesn’t want a healthy baby? You would think everyone would want their baby to grow up happy and healthy, so they can run around playgrounds and jungle gyms and live a healthy life when they are older. I strongly believe the health of your kids begins in in the womb. It’s a message that truly needs to be shared!


The web site, which will have a section devoted specifically to prenatal care with advice, videos, and infographics with interesting data and information about risk factors.

Here are some of the infographics below. They Are In Spanish por mis Latinas:
