    Save Money on Homeownership in TAZEWELL

    Watch on YouTube

    President Obama and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro visited Phoenix, Arizona this afternoon to put a spotlight on the recovering housing sector.

    Restoring security to homeownership has always been one of the President's top economic priorities, and the results are clear -- the housing market has greatly improved since President Obama took office.

    The President’s push for new consumer protections and tough enforcement on abuses have given Americans more confidence in investing in homeownership:

    • Home sales are up.
    • Home building has more than doubled since 2009.
    • Home values have risen for the past three years.

    But there's more work to do. Mortgages need to be more accessible and affordable for creditworthy families.

    That's why today, at Central High School in Phoenix, the President announced a responsible reduction in the Federal Housing Administration’s (FHA) Mortgage Insurance Premium program. The Federal Housing Administration will reduce annual mortgage insurance premiums by 0.5 percentage points, from 1.35 percent to 0.85 percent.

    The President’s new proposal to reduce the fees associated with buying a home would help first-time homebuyers save an average of $900 on their annual mortgage payment. More people buying homes would also strengthen the market, helping everyone who already owns a home.

    In Phoenix today, President Obama explained that homeownership was a dream that should be open to all Americans. Not only will the President’s actions help numerous families realize the American Dream and get a place they can finally call home, but millions of families will save billions of dollars in mortgage payments in the coming years, helping to support and stabilize the housing market recovery.

    How can I prepare for breastfeeding before I give birth?

    baby-breastfeedingTo prepare for breastfeeding, the most important thing you can do is have confidence in yourself and to plan ahead. Committing to breastfeeding starts with the conviction that you can do it! Other steps you can take to prepare for breastfeeding are:
    • Get good prenatal care, which can help you avoid early delivery. Babies born too early have more problems with breastfeeding.
    • Tell your doctor about your plans to breastfeed, and ask if the place where you plan to deliver your baby has the staff and setup to support successful breastfeeding. Some hospitals and birth centers have taken special steps to create the best possible environment for successful breastfeeding. These places are called Baby-Friendly Hospitals and Birth Centers.
    • Take a breastfeeding class. Pregnant women who comprehend about how to breastfeed are more likely to be successful at breastfeeding than those who do not. Breastfeeding classes offer pregnant women and their partners the chance to prepare and ask questions before the baby´s arrival.
    • Ask your doctor to recommend a lactation consultant. You can establish a contact with a lactation consultant before the baby comes so that you will have support ready after the baby is born.
    • Talk to your doctor about your health. Discuss any breast surgery or injury you may have had. If you have depression, or are taking supplements or medicines, talk with your doctor about treatments that can work with breastfeeding.
    • Tell your doctor that you would like to breastfeed as soon as possible after delivery. The sucking instinct is very strong within the baby´s first hour of life.
    • Talk to friends who have breastfed, or consider joining a breastfeeding support group.
    • Talk to fathers, partners, and other family members about how they can help you successfully breastfeed. Partners and family members can:
      • Support your breastfeeding by being kind and encouraging
      • Show their love and appreciation for all of the work that goes into breastfeeding
      • Be good listeners if you need to talk about any breastfeeding concerns you might have
      • Help make sure you have enough to drink and get enough rest
      • Help around the house
      • Take care of any other children who are at home
      • Give the baby love through playing and cuddling
    • Get the items you will need for breastfeeding, such as nursing bras, covers, and nursing pillows.
