~Lotus Flower~ Visualising the opening of flowers during birth helps open the body for birth. This magnificent flower emerges from the dirty and unclean bottom of a pond, but still remains untouched and unstained by the dirt and mud surrounding it in the pond. This unique quality of the flower is believed to represent pure spirit, rebirth, beauty, fertility, transcendence, and resurrection. What a magesty of a flower to gain inspiration from. #bigheartedbirth #cindyfenn #inspiredbynature #lotusvisualisation #birthtools #lotusflower #hypnobirthingaustralia ™️ #physiologicalbirth #bigheartedbeginning #pregnantinmelbourne #positivebirth #homebirth #hypnobirth #pregnantinmelbourne #hypnobirthingaustralia#physiologicalbirth

Why do birth work? “I do it, because nothing else… nothing else, compares to watching a woman move mountains with her own self, to watching her rise to a challenge and meet the moment with all she has, and that experience is only enhanced when she is supported by those who care for her, respect her, and want her to be empowered by the journey.” The Yarn Harlot . #Doula #BirthDoula #Postpartumdoula #Birth #pregnancy #homebirth #DONA #thirdtrimester #pregnancyworkout #breastfeeding #normalizebreastfeeding #naturalbirth #virginiadoula #dcdoula #BreastfeedingToddler #cutebaby #ExtendedBreastfeeding #parenthood #washingtondc #Northernvirginiadoula #Parenthood #Newborns #ittakesavillage #BirthWithoutfear #Motherhood #2019 #FreeBirth #Breastmilk #TheVillageDoulaVA #momsofinstagram

#Repost @fitmrsfats with @get_repost ・・・ Which Pain Relief option did you go for or would you like to go for during Child Birth? That entenox is like WEED tho 😂🤣🤣 Will you be using pain relief or going natural? Here are a list of options commonly used during birth. TAG A Pregnant Mom 🤰 Water- you don't have to give birth in water to benefit from in. Just spending your labor in the warm pool can help make you feel more relaxed. Some women opt for a water birth but many will use water simply to ease the contractions and then get out for the birth. . Opiates come in the form of pethidine, meptid and diamorphine. This is an injection usually given in your buttocks and makes you feel drowsy. It works by making you feel relaxed and even a bit sleepy. It crosses the placenta though so shouldn't be given too close to the birth of the baby as it may affect their breathing. . Entenox or gas & air is also known as laughing gas. You breath it through a mouthpiece throughout each contraction and similar to opiates it relaxes you , taking the edge off the pain. It only stays in your system for a short period of time and doesn't cross the placenta. It can make you feel a little nauseous if you puff on it too much! . Epidurals are more invasive and have many more risks for mum but they offer a full pain block when effective. They can be helpful for women who are having extremely long labors due to babies being in difficult positions. An anesthetist will discuss an epidural with you thoroughly if you ask for one and they are only given in hospitals, not in birth centers or during home births.

I’m proud of my stripey stretch marks now and I’m also sharing this to show others that we shouldn’t be ashamed of our marks but embrace them because they are part of us and help to remind us of our life journey. Its been ages since my last check up ... that’s the thing when it’s not your first baby you don’t get seen as often so it was soooo lovely to hear my tiny growing pickles little heartbeat just now 🥰 It was my last general midwife appointment too with the lovely Jackie and a student midwife .... now I get transferred to the amazing Sash Nhs HomeBirth Team for the last weeks and stages of my pregnancy 🙌😍 to hopefully continue on my journey to having another experience of welcoming a bubba to the world within the comforts of home with my family around me and the fabulous support of the Homebirth midwifes 🙏🤞 #heartbeat #pregnancy #inlovealready #babybump #stretchmarks #proudofmybody #boyorgirl #homebirth #29weeks #motherhood #excited #mummaofpickles #bumpnumber5 #babyno5 #baby #cantwaittomeetyou #mumsmums #comingsoon #babyontheway #pregnancylife #babybumplove #bump #babyheartbeat #parenting #babiesofinstagram

PREGNANCY HYDRATION | WORDS FROM THE WISE| [REPOST] 💦🍋 pregnancy hydration 💦🍋 . . . Consuming enough water (2.5-3L ) per day is always very important but it’s especially important when you have another life inside of you 🤰🏻 . . . I usually chug about 350ml of water in one go at a time. I love drinking water and I find it very easy usually. With the addition to my uterus, water can only really be consumed in sips. When I drink a lot of water all at once I tend to feel quite queasy. I also haven’t felt thirsty as I usually do. So it’s something I really have to focus on now✨ . . . I have been making sure I have clean water, usually I’m happy to consume the tap water in SA, but now I am filtering my water using @kurobocharcoal which is so easy and gives me peace of mind! Adding fresh organic lemon to my water also makes it easier to enjoy slow sipping 🍋🍊 . . . Water is your friend, it cleanses your body, refreshes the body, mind and soul 💕 Clean fresh water can give you energy, boost your mood and clear your mind ☀️ it’s so wonderful!!

These are the feet of a 3 year old who has spent roughly 99.9% of his life NOT being restricted by foot casts (shoes ). • The natural foot is wider than what we typically see today in domesticated feet. • It is also much stronger and more stable. Not to mention the many significances being bare footed has for the rest of the skeleton. • The deterioration begins early. Already at 3 years, most commercially made shoes in his size are already too narrow for his feet (what a shame 🙄 ) • The other day he wanted to wear socks (unusual, as the rest of him was fully naked 😂 ) and even the socks were a challenge to stretch over his foot girth. • • • #rewildthechild #wildchild #rewilding #wildchildren #wildandfreechildren #wildandfree #letthembewild #letthembefree #ancestralknowledge #primitiveskills #naturalmovement #alternativeeducation #unschooling #ratherhuntandgather #primalchild #primalliving #offgrid #offgridliving #selfsufficient #homebirth #naturalliving #attachmentparenting #permaculture #climatechange #anarchist #untamingpodcast #love #barefoot #barefeet #freethefeet

I love seeing my children happy but sometimes eczema can get in the way of smiles and laughter! Finn has suffered with childhood eczema over the past year and its so important to me to have a cream that helps sooth his irritated skin! @hopesrelief eczema cream feels so smooth and beautiful on Finns skin and has a really nice subtle scent which we love! I also have been using it to treat my dry skin that always occurs during the colder months and it's been working so well @hopesrelief #ad

Plasenta ve Göbek Kordonuna Elveda🕯 Eskiden bebek doğar doğmaz göbek kordonu kesilir, bebek rutin işlemler için sağlık görevlilerince alınır, kontrolleri bitince anneye verilirdi . Şimdilerde ise hastanelerde geç kordon klempleme denilen 1-5 dakika beklenerek, kordon kan akımı bebeğe iyice geçmesi beklenerek kesilme gerçekleşmektedir. Bu sırada bebek ile anne #tentenetemas halindedir. . Bazı inanışlarda ise göbek kordonu ve plasenta doğum sonrası nabzı attığı sürece , kan akımı devam ettiğinden göbek kordonu kesilmemeli şeklindedir. Her doğum için göbek kordonu kesme/yakma işleminin ayrı sürede olacağından bahsedilmektedir. Bu videoda doğumdan sonra 2 saat beklenip, ritüel şeklinde kordonun mum ile yakılarak bebekten ayrılmasını izliyoruz. Daha sonrasında aileler kendi inanışlarına göre göbek bağı ve plasentayı gömebiliyor, kurutup saklayabiliyor, bazende yiyebiliyorlar. Her bebek için doğru olan sürede, bir bebek için değil insanlık için bunu yaptıklarını #waitforwhite sloganıyla söylüyorlar. . Sizlerin bebeğinizin eşi ile ayrılması nasıl oldu? . 📹alıntı #emzirmedanismani #doula #pregnancyyoga #hamileyogasicesme #cesmeemzirmedanismani #hamileyogasialacati #doulaalacati #cesmedogumahazirlik #alacatidogumahazirlik #doulaçeşme #çeşmehamileyoga #çeşmeemzirmedanışmanı #çeşmedoğumahazırlık #emzirmedanışmanıizmir #hamileyogasıizmir #breastfeedingcounselling #doğum #birth #alaçatı #pregnant #pregnancy #annebebek #homebirth #hamileanneler #çeşmenindoulası #placenta #göbekkordonu

The placenta - like Wow! Sometimes seeing your placenta can be too much for women after birth, I know first time around I wasn’t interested at all... but this was your baby’s first home. This blob kept your baby alive all those months in the womb. Isn’t it crazy that we create an whole organ for our baby, which we then birth and dispose of (unless you choose to use it however you wish ) ⠀ ⠀ We often don’t focus on the third stage of labour, but remember you birth isn’t over until the placenta is born too and if you choose to do this naturally it also needs exactly the same environment as your baby did. Dark, quite and oxytocin filled. ⠀ ⠀ The choice between medicalised delivery of your placenta with the ergometrine injection or Physiological management is one of the many options many women don’t always realise they have and there are pros and cons to both options.⠀ ⠀ Educate yourself and take control of your birth. ⠀ ⠀ Either visit my classes link in bio or get in touch to book your birth preparation and hypnobirthing course this summer. ⠀

After 2 previous #homebirths (both very different ) I’m hoping today I get the OK for another attempt with #pittsbabynumber5 After all the complications in early pregnancy, which are now resolved I’m hoping the midwives will be happy for me to birth at home. Having 4 other children to consider during the labour, birthing at home probably doesn’t sound like a good option to most, but needing childcare for 4 children for an unknown amount of time is extremely tricky and not something I want to be stressing about once I’m in labour. Both girls were present when Levison was born so they are keen to be at this birth, as is Lunan. I can’t think Levison will be much bothered BUT he does give great hugs which mumma may need!! It’s all very dependent on when my labour starts and how quickly things progress (usually slowly!! ) I can’t believe how quickly the pregnancy has gone and I’m very much looking forward to meeting this new little person now, whenever the time arrives #homebirth #pittsbabynumber5

O Cuidado ao Parto na História O cuidado prestado à mulher durante o processo de parir sofreu muitas modificações através dos tempos, decorrentes da medicalização e institucionalização do parto, dos avanços tecnológicos e do desenvolvimento da medicina. Apesar desses avanços terem correspondido às expectativas de queda da mortalidade materna e principalmente infantil, elas contribuíram para que hoje a parturiente seja a paciente, sem direito sobre o próprio corpo, violada e muitas vezes desrespeitada como ser humano de direitos. Ao refletirmos criticamente sobre a dominação do corpo da mulher, percebemos a demarcação do corpo da gestante com nomes médicos, característicos do gênero masculino, sendo eles usados como alguns dos dispositivos simbólicos de dominação. No passado, o parto era acompanhado por mulheres em ambiente domiciliar, por parteiras ou comadres, que eram pessoas de confiança da gestante ou de experiência reconhecida na comunidade, que tinham algum saber acerca dos mecanismos de reprodução. A participação masculina até o século XII era muito pequena, contrária aos padrões culturais dominantes na época, levando a um atraso no desenvolvimento de uma atividade médica ligada à mulher. A assistência à parturiente era considerada assunto de mulheres, em que as parteiras criavam um clima emocional favorável, com suas crenças, talismãs, orações e receitas mágicas para aliviar a dor das contrações, e os homens apenas realizavam assistência a partos de animais.

Throwback Thursday! ⠀ ⠀ Earlier this month we all saw that beautiful image of The Queen meeting her 8th great-grandchild Archie, for the first time.⠀ ⠀ The pure joy on both her and The Duke’s face was lovely. They’re just like us! ⠀ ⠀ It made me scroll back to those moment when Lex met his great-grandmother, Mamie. Unfortunately he didn’t get to meet mine, but we got Lex a passport straightaway and whisked him off to France to meet Fé’s grandmother.⠀ ⠀ Lex was a heavy lump for her. But it was a special moment for Fé, to see Mamie cradling his son in her arms. And my favourite moment was when she said (in French ): his feet are like an accordion.⠀ ⠀ And here they are, his little accordion feet, in Mamie’s hands.⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #birtheasy #wisehippo #pregnant #bump #birth #hypnobirthingmadeeasy #hypnobirthing #hypnobirth #positivebirth #calmbirth #gentlebirth #naturabirth #birthstory #homebirth #waterbirth #birthwithconfidence #birthwithoutfear #informedbirth #empoweredbirth #birthbecomesher #hypnobirthingworks #rockyourbirth #birthisbeautiful #womenaremagic

🌊 Affirmations are simply positive statements. Some of my favourite ones for pregnancy and birth are • 🌊 I practice profound relaxation and I deepen my confidence and trust • 🌊 With each surge I breathe deeply, focus upwards and work with my body • 🌊The more I relax the easier things feel • 🌊 This too shall pass • 🌊 My body is beautiful and amazing • 🌊 I learn from my challenges . • 🌊 I remember to trust my inner wisdom . • 🌊 I am strong, I can do this • 🌊 Birth is powerful and so am I • Positive statements or ‘self talk’ and visualisations have been used for decades in sports and birth is a mental and physical process, right? When they are repeated on a regular basis, they become a belief and we all know that influences reality 💙 . . 🌊 What’s your favourite affirmation? . . . #affirmations #positivevibes #positivethinking #selftalk #relax 📷 @sweetpeaartworks

I visited this beautiful family today and @ripsnorter and @nickwpotts spent time reflecting on the amazing healing and transformative power of birth and a protected and honoured postpartum experience. How privileged I feel to have witnessed the beautiful growth of their baby Zeven and how they are thriving since his birth. It’s fair to say we are all better having met each other. @ripsnorter embodies the bliss of her birth here, placenta still attached to her fresh babe and a cuppa beside her. Such magic #homebirth #homebirthmidwife #melaniethemidwife #transformativebirth

The Iceberg Analogy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My last post was about the conscious and subconscious mind, and how they can play tug of war and impact on labour. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With the Iceberg Analogy, the conscious brain is the smaller part above the water. Powerful, stunning and majestic. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The subconscious mind is the hidden, mysterious and lesser known larger part underneath the water. Even more powerful and supporting the conscious brain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This analogy is used because our cognitive activity (decision making, emotions, actions, and behaviour ) is only up to 5% conscious thought (the tip of the iceberg ). The majority (95-99% ) of our cognitive processes come from the subconscious mind (the huge powerful iceberg below the waterline ). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The subconscious mind is over a million times more powerful than the conscious brain. This is why we learn about the power of the mind and its relationship with the body's nervous system in the Barefoot Birthing Hypnobirthing Course.

The myth that doulas and OBs clash has had a good run. We're lucky enough to have photo evidence that just because a misconception has been around for a while doesn't mean it's true.

This article helps me better understand the biological benefits active labor has on baby. Of course, full-term labor is not always feasible, nor is unmedicated birth, but there are still ways our bodies are built that set the stage for baby’s first moments.

#Repost @farmercourtney The child that I am unaware I’m carrying in this picture turns 12 tomorrow. I am so grateful for all the times I thought I was ready to do something, and then motherhood humbled me. My educator often told me “Truth out of season, will never be successful.” Some of you may know I have 6 children, but only one son. He, like all his sisters before him, was born at home. The night he was born he came through quickly, the midwife had yet to arrive. Though her assistant at the time, a determined young woman had reached. The midwife and our friend (a doula in training ) were in route to the farm in separate vehicles, but only the assistant was on site, and I was in far along in my labor. Knowing how fast my last child was born, she wisely made me come out of the bathroom as soon as she got upstairs. The bedroom was a larger space, which she might need if she were to catch her first baby ever. I had complete faith and trust that this situation was exactly as it was supposed to be and told her so. She received that, and began mentally prepare to do something weighty that she had never done and alone to boot! Very shortly after that exchange our son came through. She did a stellar job, everything was blessed and the midwife arrived minutes later to find me and a healthy baby boy. Seems like yesterday, but those seasons of physical birth have long since passed. Transitioning from the physical to the intellectual. Working on birthing some new, helpful content for y’all. Moving into birthing things on a next level, hopeful that this is the season for truth! I appreciate you following what I post, peace!!🕊🌎🕊 #motherhood #babies #humbled #peace #wearefarrakhan #homebirth #creation #content #farmlife #farmwife #smallfarm #growfood #farming

i’ve been busy with commissions so i haven’t had time to create any super new pieces. instead, i just revamped an old piece of mine to add a touch of color! while i love creating birth art that includes visible support systems, i have a deep love for illustrating lone birthing people. i hold deep reverence for those that turn deeply inward during their birthing times. you can almost see them astral travel to find their babes and bring them earthside. pure magic ✨💕

Turn back time... to when my bestie laboured like a goddess to birth her babe (and my fairy godson ) Lenny. Some women make birth look easy, Ash was one of them. But that’s what an empowered woman with awesome support does 💪💜 @ashtreeomlz

If you want a low intervention birth your best plan according to the stats is a planned Home Birth with a Midwife. However just having Midwifery Care increases your chance of a lower intervention birth. #pleaseshare @midwiveseasterie @midwifehaldimand @midwifenorfolk @homebirth #beinformed #wesupportyou #homebirth #hospitalbirth #MidwivesHaldimand #MidwivesNorfolk #MidwivesofEastErie @AOM @Associationofontariomidwives @AOM

Perth skies make the early wakes well and truly worth it 😍 I love to catch both sunrise and sunset to maintain my circadian rhythm, it’s so easy to do, it’s free, its beautiful, and so good for your health! Blue light from our devices and home lighting can disrupt our melatonin production, so if you’re having trouble sleeping try catching the sunset red light and reducing your screen time before bed. #circadianrhythm #morningsky

Who can relate? 🤚🏼 I know that before I had my kids, I had SO many ideals and theories about what parenting should look like and then I had two separate little humans, with their own needs and emotions. Every time we’d think we mastered a stage or a developmental challenge, a new one would pop up (and still does )! Try to be gentle on yourself (and others ) as you figure out this parenting gig. The journey itself is the best teacher.

I love postpartum visits, but it's always bitter sweet when it's our last visit. I got to spend some sweet time with this baby and mama today. I'm gonna miss them! It's been 9 months of continuity of care with this family, and they've become part of my heart. When you hire a midwife, you secure one care provider (not a random healthcare provider at each appointment ) who will see you through to the end. You build a relationship built on trust and time spent together, preparing you for your birth through education and consultation. Your midwife learns your goals and desires for birth and beyond, and works to help you prepare and obtain those goals. She's there for you, a phone call or text away, when you can't remember if it's safe to take benadryl or when you think your water may have broken. Studies show that women who had continuity of care by a midwife (or team of midwives ) were more likely to discuss prenatal and postpartum concerns, attend prenatal classes, give birth without painkillers, feel well prepared and supported during labor, and feel prepared for child care. Resuscitation was also less frequently required for their babies, and overall they were more likely to be pleased with their prenatal, labor and postpartum care. This is the midwive's model of care. ♡ #highdesert #highdesertbirthservices #applevalleyca #hesperia #victorville #homebirth #waterbirth #midwife #naturalbirth #midwivesmodelofcare

on connection.⠀⠀ ________///⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ there's beauty in the unseen connection between a parent and child. when baby is in the womb, they know of nothing and no one. all that is present outside the womb is foreign, and still when a baby is born, they naturally gravitate to the parents who've energetically sent love and care to them during the gestation period.⠀⠀ *⠀⠀ *⠀⠀ i'm sure there's some scientific evidence that explains this connection but without all the formalities I think marveling at the beauty of natural and intuitive connectedness is worth so much more attention then we give. ⠀⠀ *⠀⠀ *⠀⠀ while in the womb,⠀⠀ love the babies⠀⠀ kiss the babies⠀⠀ talk to the babies⠀⠀ read to the babies⠀⠀ rub the babies⠀⠀ sing to the babies⠀⠀ honor the babies⠀⠀ connect with the babies.

If you are a Mama located on Whidbey Island and due within the next 6 months, please reach out to me. I need to encapsulate 3 placentas as part of my training. 🤰🏻 📸 @ Safe Birth Project
