OMG! Princess Charlotte Is the New Harper Beckham/Suri Cruise

Yesterday, the fact the Queen of England wore a brooch The Obamas gave her while meeting US President Trump was trending as people in social media referred to her as the “Queen of Shade”. It looks like her great granddaughter, Princess Charlotte, has some snarky non-verbal shading skills of her own.

While attending her baby brother Prince Louis‘ Christening at St. Jame’s Palace in London on July 9,Prince George and Princess Charlotte entered holding their father Prince William’s hands, while mom, Kate Middleton followed behind holding Prince Louis in her arms.

Charlotte shot the snapping press one fierce look that was reminiscent to Suri Cruise and Harper Beckham back when those two were the “it” celebrity baby darlings.

Dressed in a blue floral frock with her hair parted in the middle, the princess wore a blue headband that had a bow attached at the to with matching blue shoes and white socks.

Big bro donned navy knickers and a crisp white short sleeve shirt paired with navy socks and shoes.

Duchess Catherine stuck with her fave Alexander McQueen. Kate wore similar ensembles for George and Charlotte’s christening’s marking Louis’ as the third time wearing the beloved designer. Kate nailed her look and as the saying goes if it isn’t broke don’t fix it.

This Telemedicine App Promises Free Birth Control amidst Obamacare Abolishing Threat

birth-control-app-1-home-page

Telemedicine startup Nurx has committed to keep the free birth control flowing after the Republicans in Congress and Donald Trump nix Obamacare, as they’ve been proposing for a while now.

“Donald Trump’s first executive order reaffirmed that he is intent on repealing the Affordable Care Act. We hope that in doing so he ensures that women would retain access to free birth control and other preventative services. Anything less would be reckless.” says co-founder and CEO of Nurx, Hans Gangeskar.

He also believes that repealing the Affordable Care Act would cause 24 million people to lose health coverage by 2021 and would have devastating consequences on women’s health.

To do its part to counter those effects, Nurx is offering free birth control to new users who use the promo code ‘AlternativeFacts.’

The  San Francisco, California-based company focuses on making birth control as well as Truvada for PrEP (Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) more accessible to everyone through their app. With the app, users can get a prescription from a doctor and have their medication delivered right to their door.

According to the National Women’s Law Center, roughly 55 million women now receive contraception and other preventive services with no out-of-pocket costs because of the Affordable Care Act.

In 2015, researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania found that the ACA is saving oral contraceptive users an average of $255 a year and $248 for women with an IUD.

 

Its mission is to be a low cost option for woman and since December 2016, it has offered free pills to new users.

The Free Birth Control Promotion requires users to use the promo code ‘AlternativeFacts’ in order to get $45 of credit toward birth control through Nurx. To get the deal, users must visit Nurx.com, create a Nurx account, pick their brand of choice, and enter promo code ‘AlternativeFacts’ at checkout. The promotion ends February 28, 2017.

According to Nurx’s Medical Director, Dr. Jessica Knox, “Women should not have to jump through unnecessary hoops just to access birth control. The pill remains available by prescription only throughout the United States today, but with our app, we’re making birth control more accessible than ever.”

How the App Works for Birth Control:

● User Chooses Brand – The user selects their brand, answers a few questions, enters their insurance and shipping info.

● Doctor Reviews Submission – a Nurx partner physician reviews the request and writes a prescription.

● Delivered to Customer – The prescribed medication is delivered right to the user’s door.

“Women should be able to access health care on their own terms,” explains Dr. Edvard Engesaeth, a medical doctor and cofounder of Nurx. The app works for both new and existing birth control users and the service and shipping are often free to anyone with health care coverage. For uninsured patients, Nurx waives the consultation fee.

Kim Kardashian West’s Return to Social Media Just Turned Political

slider_1_-_kim_kardashian

Kim Kardashian West returned to social media in time to get political. Her husband Kanye West may be a friend of Donald Trump, but she still took the time to passive aggressively slam a recent policy imposed by the 45th US President.

In a Friday executive order, President Trump banned Syrian refugees and other citizens from several Muslim countries. Kim responded by posting statistics about annual deaths in America.

The graphic on Twitter showed the number of Americans killed annually by various circumstances. The fatal injury report deemed that two people are killed by Islamic jihadist immigrants each year, which was compared to 11,737 individuals killed by being shot by another American.

The biz mogul and reality TV show captioned her post, “Statistics.”

Chelsea Clinton Baited to Criticize her Friend Ivanka Trump’s Dad; She Snatched it

chelsea and ivanka

Remember when we posted about how our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump were still good friends despite the fact that their respective parents were going against each other head to head for the job of US President?

Well, it looks like things may start to get personal.

During a Facebook Live event on Tuesday, July 25, Glamour Editor in Chief Cindi Leiv pinned Chelsea down on her friendship with Ivanka and tested it a bit, egging her on to criticize Ivanka’s dad Donald Trump, CBS News reports.

“So you and Ivanka are friendly, I know,” Leiv asked. “if you got to ask her a question about how her father would do that, what would it be?”

Chelsea had a quick answer! “It would be that question: ‘How would your father do that?'”

“Given it’s not something that he has spoken about, there are no policies on any of those fronts that you just mentioned on his website — not last week, not this week,” she said. “So I think the ‘how’ question is super important. In politics as it is in life.”

“So it really matters to me that my mom in this election consistently has told you how she is going to do everything,” Clinton continued. “Whether that’s on gun control or protecting a woman’s right to choose or any of the things we’ve talked about. She also tells you how she’s going to pay for it.”

“It’s something I hope would matter to that traditional Republican voter,” the former first daughter said, before adding that Trump’s plans could add trillions of dollars to the national debt. “Social progress should also come with social responsibility and fiscal responsibility.”

Game on!

Last week, Ivanka gave an amazing speech that trumpeted the importance of women’s rights and options. She didn’t announce that she was a Republican and a lot of Democrats and Independents actually resonated and agreed with Ivanka. Some asked why she wasn’t the one running for President instead of her dad.

Watch Ivanka’s powerful and impassioned speech, the best of the convention, in our opinion, here.

Actually, couldn’t you see an Ivanka Trump v. Chelsea Clinton run in the future?

Donald Trump calls Lawyer ‘Disgusting’ after asking for Breastfeeding Break

trump2

US 2016 Presidential hopeful Donald Trump is catching some heat today for once calling a lawyer disgusting after she asked to excuse herself temporarily from a legal proceeding so she could pump breast milk for a baby at home.

A New York times report today discusses the recently  uncovered transcript from a 2011 Trump deposition over a failed Florida real estate project. When Elizabeth Beck, then a brand new mom who was also the attorney for the opposing side of the case, asked for a break to pump, she raised her breast bump bag to signal the genuineness and urgency of her request.

“You’re disgusting,” Trump told the woman before getting up himself to scurry from the room, the reports states.

Trump tweeted in response to the incident today claiming that Beck was attempting to nurse in front of him. He said he she lost and he loved beating her.

Also, without denying the allegations, Trump’s lawyer, Alan Garter, told the Times in a statement that Trump’s statement “was in no way a statement about her decision to breastfeed or pump. It was solely the fact that she was appearing to do it in the middle of a deposition,” and make an attempt to get extra time.

Um…this guy probably never in his life had super engorged breasts! News flash: It is uber painful and uncomfortable! The consequence of her not pumping would be for her milk to leak through her breastpads and clothing. How insensitive, aloof and unsympathetic can these guys be! Garter is one thing, but the Donald wants to be president! ugh!

As expected, Beck calls Trump’s camp response ridiculous saying she was only requesting a private place to pump, she told CNN this morning.

““[Trump] got up, his face got red, he shook his finger at me and he screamed, ‘You’re disgusting, you’re disgusting,’ and he ran out of there,” Beck said, referrign to this his behavior as “an absolute meltdown.”

Outside of this incident, the only other indication Trump has given on his feelings of mothers and children since announcing his candidacy came during a speech in Iowa earlier this year.

After the event,  he proudly boasted that a crying baby was driving him “crazy” but he kept his cool because he “didn’t want to insult the parents for not taking the kid out of the room!”

Yay! You get a gold Star!

Trump, a real estate developer and reality TV star of The Apprentice is the dad to our Bellyitch Bumpwatch Alum, Ivanka Trump.
