Discovery Familia launches Camino Al Bienestar {$25 Amazon Giveaway}

{This is part of a compensated campaign with Latina Mom Bloggers and Discovery Familia. However, all opinions expressed are my own.}


Discovery Familia launches CAMINO AL BIENESTAR, a year-round initiative offering resources and advice about a variety of health and well-being topics, including prevention, alternative medicine, nutrition and physical activities. 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.



Born in Tijuana, Mexico, Dr. Selene is now a professor at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine as well as the Family Medicine Residency program, with a permanent position at the Los Angeles Department of Health Services.

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. That is why, during the month of March, Discovery Familia’s ‘Camino al bienestar’ campaign is dedicated to informing on the importance of prenatal care.


As someone who has type 2 diabetes, both of my pregnancies were considered to be "High Risk" pregnancies. I know the importance of prenatal care and how vital it is for every woman despite health history. Since most Hispanics are at risk for diabetes, it wouldn't surprise me to learn that Hispanic pregnant women would be at an increased risk for Gestational diabetes. Below is a sonogram photo of my son at 5 weeks, the first of many sonograms during my pregnancy to insure that baby is healthy.


Educational segments hosted by Discovery Familia health expert Dr. Selene Velasco on topics such as nutrition, foods to avoid during pregnancy, safe food handling and healthful recipes.


Special programming, which includes the series premiere of EMBARAZADAS SIN CONTROL 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.
