So, does anyone know about public assistance in either Wisconsin or New Mexico? She is looking into what she might qualify for in either place, but if anyone has any leads or ideas that would be really helpful. Is there a subsidized insurance plan in New Mexico for low income people, and if so do they penalize you if you're already pregnany when you enroll? Any programs in either state that help single moms with child care, post partum support, breastfeeding... or anything else that would come in handy for a low income single mom?
Also, for this group specifically; she is totally clueless about breastfeeding vs. formula, natural birth, and natural minded parenting. She is open to learning about it, but won't spend a lot of time doing research or reading long articles that I might pass on (she has learning disorder and is not very good with reading). So any info that you know of that keeps things short and simple and compares all the options would be really helpful. And natural birthing pain management techniques, she wants to try for an unmedicated birth but is really, really bad with pain.
Thanks in advance everyone!
