So what do you think of this? 🐬 Read the story below and tag a friend...⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Igor Charkovsky, a Russian male mid-wife has assisted in over 20,000 underwater births, but in 1979 he began experiments with dolphins and children.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ His daughter, one of the first modern water-birthers, was in her late twenties when the following incident happened. Charkovsky and his team had taken a woman to the Black Sea for an underwater birth.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ In two feet of water, preparing for the birth, suddenly three dolphins approached, pushed everyone out of the way and took over. They scanned the length of her body (with sonar? ), which somehow relaxed the mother and child and gave birth with no pain or fear.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Apparently all the human midwives were pretty shocked. This opened up the new practice of ‘Dolphin mid-wivery’ which may sound strange, but fits in with the new breed of super-children that are currently coming in to existence.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ For some reason, dolphins are attracted to pregnant women and young children and as most people are aware, the dolphins can also help heal people with mental and psychological problems. But the children, who are being born with the aid of dolphins, at least with the cases documented in Russia, are extraordinary children.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Most of the have IQ’s of over 150 (genius range again ), plus extremely stable emotional bodies and strong physical bodies. They are superior in one way or another.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Humans are meant to give birth in water. Some three decades of research and the experience of thousands of births has shown that underwater birth is better for the mother and for the baby. The mother is supported by the water which permits her relaxation and easy movement and during delivery of the baby from the womb to water, the buoyancy of the water supports the baby’s brain and protects it at its most vulnerable time.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Thanks to @connecting_consciousness ⁣ ⁣ #thewaveandtheocean #newmom #love #homebirth #pregnancy #birthwithoutfear #breastfeeding #waterbirth #doula #newborn #mom #pregnant #repost #maternity #babies #birth #midwife #family #birthisbeautiful #birthphotographer #mother #babygirl #motherhood #naturalbirth #postpartum

See that smile?! It’s because September health coaching slots are filling up QUICK! I’m only taking two more women’s health or fertility clients to work with starting September. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I really thrive getting to help women regulate, understand and empower their bodies. Plus... it’s SO FUN! I remember feeling helpless and confused years ago, really ticked at my body for doing all these weird things and I wasn’t able to understand why. Now, I’m able to honor her and the work she does for me. But, it’s been a really long road and there are still days I question why. Right now, I’m helping six women reclaim their bodies from sleep issues, digestion troubles, decreased energy, wonky cycles and PMS issues. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If this is you, let’s chat! You can book a free initial consult to see if it might be a good fit in my bio. 🧡

EXTRA EXTRA READ ALL ABOUT IT: *LINK IN BIO* . The debate of Home vs. Hospital for birth has been a "hot topic" to say the least. A recent study from McMaster University (here in Canada ) has now confirmed what many birth workers have known to be true for a very long time: HAVING A BABY AT HOME IS SAFE! Is it for everyone? There is NO one-size-fits-all for birth, but having evidence to support the knowledge that birth at home is safe is fantastic. . This will be a good resource when working with clients - this is an INTERNATIONAL STUDY which makes it more comprehensive. . Supporting people in birth is important work, honouring choices and providing solid information is a Doula's Gig - we hope this link helps you out!

Acostada en la cama durante el proceso de parto: 🛌 Las contracciones se sienten más dolorosas. 🛌 El parto puede ser más largo pues las contracciones no son tan efectivas como cuando la mujer se encuentra en posiciones verticales. 🛌 Mayores probabilidades de tener una cesárea. 🛌 Mayor necesidad de intervenciones o partos con instrumentos. Si la parturienta desea estar acostada, no es una mala posición. Siempre se debe escuchar lo que el cuerpo pide y necesita. Lo incorrecto es querer forzar a las parturientas a permanecer acostadas en la cama cuando ellas no desean permanecer ahí y cuando estar acostadas hace que sientan más dolor y que no encuentren la manera de manejarlo. Si por alguna razón debes permanecer acostada en la cama, intenta acostarte de lado. Acostada del lado izquierdo puede fluir mayor oxígeno hacia bebé. La espalda queda libre para que te den masajes o para realizar contrapresión para aliviar la sensación de la contracción. Acostada de lado con un pierna apoyada por alguien o en algo las probabilidades de laceraciones vaginales disminuyen en comparación a cuando se está acostada sobre la espalda. #partoencasapuertorico #parterapr #partera #comadrona #midwife #partonatural #parirenlibertad #naturalbirth #posicionesdeparto #homebirth #partoencasa #birtheducation #educaciónsobreelparto Imagenes de Spiritysol.

Toda herramienta durante el trabajo de parto es válido, mientras la mamá en proceso lo disfrute. Te acercas sutilmente, la tocas, le hablas con suavidad, le ofreces tu hombro, le pones música y aromas, siempre abiert @ al rechazo y la negación. . . . La mujer que está de parto, debe tener tranquilidad y respeto a su intimidad, la mujer de parto no puede servir de referí entre las personas que están en su cuarto, no puede pensar en quien comió o no, no puede dirigir. . . . La mamá que está a punto de estrenarse, necesita paz y confianza, necesita amor y respeto, necesita entregarse con todos sus sentidos. . . . Quienes acompañan en el parto, tienen que preparar sus emociones, afinar su confianza y sacar su fuerza interna, para brindar esa seguridad y tranquilidad, que la mamá en labor de parto necesita. . . . #doula #teamnacerjuntos #nacerjuntos #partoencasa #homebirth #naturalbirth #womanstrong 📸 @wendyrangel

One week ago this gorgeous family welcomed a baby daughter into their lives. Thanks to Ana and Jesús for sharing this photo, taken just an hour or so after what was a beautiful waterbirth. Big brother Pedro was there to witness his sister’s arrival - just as his mother had planned - before happily getting on with riding his scooter up and down the hallway while Ana and the baby snuggled in bed with tea and toast. Frances and Jen were the midwives at the birth. Ana said she found seeing all the positive images on our page helped make her feel more confident about her own decision to have a homebirth. We hope her picture helps other families too. . . . . . #homebirth #waterbirth #midwives #safebirth #oxytocin #positivebirth

A wonderful testimonial from a client and her partner in preparing for the birth of their daughter. “Siân gently helped me to address any worries and overcome them, instilling a sense of calm and positivity surrounding my pregnancy and birth. My husband also benefitted from the sessions, allowing him to connect with the upcoming birth in a way he had not yet experienced. Siân’s knowledgable and calming nature meant sessions with her were a pleasure to attend and we both came away reassured and excited about using the strategies Siân had shared. I enjoyed using the recordings regularly in preparation for my birth and felt they brought me an inner strength and peace. This was the also case when I played them during the birth. I would highly recommend Siân to anyone considering hypnobirthing.” Victoria There are limited places left on the next course starting 28th August. 4 evenings at my office on Deansgate. £195.

Ask yourself why you want that “natural” no pain relief,no intervention birth? For any regular readers on my page, you know that I’m all for those births too and think that if that’s how you’d like to birth you should do everything you can to stack the odds for this. But.. I’m more for safe births, safe mothers and safe babies and some things you just can’t control or predict. For example, if your body develops pre eclampsia or Obstetric choleostasis or if your placenta remains low in the uterus. All these reasons may mean that your advised an induction or the latter an elective cesarean. To keep you and your baby SAFE. And then what.. You know that intervention is an option that you should take but you feel RUBBISH about it that your dream birth has been taken away from you. You start your induction and aren’t looking forward to what this journey means as you don’t know. You don’t know what you now do as it wasn’t part of your no drug plan. If the reason you want no drugs because you’re scared of what this means then find out more about them. If you’re scared of intervention then practise some techniques to keep yourself calm in that situation. Learn what it will imvolve so that nothing shocks you at the time. So that if you develop one of these conditions later on in pregnancy, you’re not left feeling scared about what this involves. Feeling panicked and shocked is going to make your birth experience a traumatic one so much more so than the actual forceps /cesarean birth. As how you FEEL about the birth counts for much more than what HAPPENS. It is a real possibility that an instrumental birth may happen for you with 9% of first time mothers on Gloucester birth unit having one and 29% having an instrumental birth on delivery suite. (Stats taken from 1st time mothers on Which? for Gloucester ) Ask yourself why does one birth mean the best and everything else sub-optimal? Where does this belief come from? And what are you going to do to make sure that regardless of how your baby comes into this world. It was the most AMAZING day of your life!!! Find out more about this at antenatal class and/or hypnobirthing.... 📷 @bradleybunch_

| P A R T 3 | 💕 . . At 3:45 I was helped out of the pool and up the stairs where I would be examined and deliver my placenta! - this walk up the stairs Definately helped me , I was offered the injection to kick start a surge to release the placenta but I just sat on the loo with a bowl underneath and it was delivered within minutes! How amazing are our bodies! 😍 I was examined and I had a few stitches to a minor tear and I was passed nelly to have her first feed and it was amazing!! It felt so natural 💕 . . By 630pm I was sat downstairs with my family having a Chinese and a cup of tea! 🙌🏻💕🤷🏼‍♀️ it was just what I wanted! . . A homebirth was my dream birth and I got it! I didn’t really listen to other people about it not being ideal for your first! I just listened to my midwife who ensured me as long as I was low risk I was ok for it! Research research research and join groups and ask other mums there experience! It isn’t for everyone I appreciate that but don’t rule it out!! 🛀🏻🤰🏼🙌🏻💕🎀 . . #homebirth #birthstory #instamums #mummytobe #homebirthbaby #homebirthmama #birth #instabirth #babygirl #blogger #bloggerlife #instablog #mumbloggers #mumbloggersuk #positivebirthstoryproject #positivebirth #positivebirthcompany

| P A R T 2 | 💕 . . 1030pm I went to sleep downstairs! 430pm I was waking up every 10 minutes with a strong pain in my lower abdomen - when you have never had a baby I had no idea if it was labour or just braxton hicks but I used the amazing app FREYA by @thepositivebirthcompany which helped me breath through them and also keep a track of how often they were- strangely enough as I was so tired I dozed off inbetween each one! Until 630am when they were now every 6/7 minutes lasting 30 seconds a time so I thought I best wake lee up 🤷🏼‍♀️ it was happening! . . 730am! I called the labour ward who would then contact the community midwife who would come out to my home- at this point lee was ready and waiting to start filling the birthing pool- my surges weren’t quite 3 in 10 at this point and were varying from every 5- 7 minutes , I was still using my affirmations and Freya app by @thepositivebirthcompany 🙌🏻 . . We had to call the labour ward again at 1030am as we had still no contact from any midwives and we were stating to panic as my surges were every 3-4 minutes lasting 40-60seconds a time! After this phone call I was at the bottom of the stairs on my knees breathing through them lee was showering and then my waters broke! What a story to tell nelly! ☺️🙈 . 11:45 and the midwife arrived and I allowed her to examine me - I was 5cm already! 😳 wow i was half way all on my own! She told me then that nelly had lots of hair 😍😍 . . 1:30pm I wanted to get in the pool 🛀🏻 and breathe through them there as they were so intense and poor lee was back and forth ensuring the temperature remained at 37 degrees 🌡 I always thought I would remain calm and collective and I did but I did make noise although it was controlled but I always had a vision that I would be quiet and peaceful! I was wrong 🤣🙈 . . After 3 big pushes my baby girl was born at 3:26pm that Saturday afternoon 6/7/19! It was magical and I was overcome with emotion as I lifted her out of the water and on to my chest! We had delayed cord clamping for 20 minutes and we even FaceTimed our parents before this picture was taken to show her brand new!

| My Birth Story | 🤰🏼P A R T 1 | . . This picture shows my emotions and I’ve been wanting to share with you my birth story since nelly was born, but they are always so long and it’s finding the time to sit and tell you! Firstly I want to say a huge thank you to the #warringtonmidwives who helped me achieve my dream #homebirth they were amazing and so attentive and caring! So thank you Jo, Jude & Emma 👩🏼‍⚕️ . . So from finding out I was expecting to even before I was pregnant I always knew I wanted a homebirth or to at least for that to be in my birth plan! This was a shock to everyone including lee and it took a lot of convincing with the help of classes and just being knowledgable about the situation , especially as it was my first baby they don’t recommend it but as long as I was to have a healthy pregnancy and remain low risk I was ok! . . So 5th July was the day it all really started I had lost a small amount of my plug in the morning on 2 occasions before my scheduled Midwife appointment I was 39 + 5 days - I had very limited movement that morning which I told Bernie my amazing midwife and also about the plug loss , she advised I go up to the hospital just to be monitored for half an hour to ensure little miss was ok and she did warn me they would probably offer me induction but to remain strong and stand my ground on my homebirth if all was ok! So long story short we spent the best part of 6 hours at the hospital - and all day I had the worst back ache I was so uncomfortable but no sign of her arriving - that evening I attempted to sleep but I had back ache and the occasionally twinge but nothing to say I was in labour I thought! . . #homebirth #birthstory #instamums #mummytobe #homebirthbaby #homebirthmama #birth #instabirth #babygirl #blogger #bloggerlife #instablog #mumbloggers #mumbloggersuk #positivebirthstoryproject #positivebirth #positivebirthcompany

𝐂𝐚𝐫𝐝𝐬 & 𝐀𝐩𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 ♥️⁣ ⁣ I think it’s safe to say, none of us want to be midwives for the money. There’s no bonuses, all expenses paid trips abroad, or even a Xmas gift each.⁣ ⁣ But what there is, makes up for all of this. ⁣ ⁣ The women & families that we meet, the experiences we are part of & how we make the women feel is the most important part.⁣ ⁣ I’m taking a huge guess here, but I’m thinking we’re probably the types of people who get more pleasure from buying for people than receiving gifts?! I know I am that type of person.⁣ ⁣ To know that I made a difference for this woman when she birthed her son makes my day.⁣ ⁣ 𝘛𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘪𝘴 𝘸𝘩𝘺 𝘐 𝘸𝘢𝘯𝘵 𝘵𝘰 𝘥𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘫𝘰𝘣. 𝘛𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘪𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘫𝘰𝘣 𝘴𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘴𝘧𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯.

I'm so excited to repost this cool story about my doula client and the ZENband from @blooming_wellness : A lot of pregnant people wear the ZENBand during pregnancy & labor to listen to birth affirmations or hypnosis scripts. It's a safe, simple and comfty tool for this. This is a picture of one of @birthsimply (Ashley's ) clients using the ZENBand for #hypnobirthing Ashley is a #doula in Australia and is also my West Point classmate & Army soccer teammate. Follow her Insta, because she's an Amazing doula with glowing reviews. Anyhow, I get a lot of requests from Australia for ZENBands, but the shipping is cray cray. So, after all these years, Ashley and I are connecting on another venture, though not an Army one this time, and everyone in Australia who wants a #ZENBand can now order it straight from her website for a much faster and better shipping rate. It's so great to work with people you trust. 🙏 Since hypnobirthing is super popular in the UK & Ireland, ( & picking up a lot of interest in the US ) ...for those in the UK, you'll be able to order it from Chemist Direct very soon & in Ireland, you'll be able to get it from Stratus Healthcare. So Australia... @birthsimply Follow, follow, follow. 💜😊- Thanks, Dr. E. . So there you have it🤗...I'm selling ZENbands in Australia!

When I read this quote by @spiritdaughter , I immediately think of the beautifully expansive and transformative process of birth. Many of us make our way towards birth fearful of discomfort, fearful of unknown territory and subconsciously resistant to opening and surrendering to the monumental energy moving through us. Birth is meant to be uncomfortable. And I don’t mean the “pain” of surges. That’s a whole different feeling altogether and I’ll go into it another time. I’m talking about the otherworldly internal space we oscillate between when in the throes of birth. Expansion only comes after discomfort. And we must expand and grow to become mothers. We must access a part of ourselves we’ve never before even realised existed. Like the caterpillar who transforms into a butterfly. She must fully break herself down, in order to recalibrate into a beautiful butterfly. If you could adjust and prepare yourself for this process can you imagine how much easier birth would feel? If you can be aware of discomfort and understand it’s role? If you could see birth as the magical experience it is? We fear transformation. We fear stripping ourselves to our bare bones and seeing ourselves in our entirety. Society has always forbidden us to see soul searching as advantageous, instead forcing us to favour turning a blind eye to our true emotions. But in birth, there is no hiding from our transformation. She will emerge whether we surrender to the process or not. She will force herself out to be seen and heard. That’s how I see the difficulties we face postpartum when we haven’t given our inner mother space to be heard in pregnancy and birth. A crying out of our inner selves screaming “Here I am. Accept me!” Wouldn’t it be better to not resist? To facilitate change? To allow ourselves to flow into a new way of being? If you want to learn more about the ways you can prepare for the expansion of birth DM me and we can have a free coaching call where we can explore your personal desires and fears for an empowered birth and I’ll also give you more details about my private 1-2-1 Conscious Birth Coaching Course. A new and expansive way to prepare for birth. 🧡

♡ MONDAY MORNING ♡ Morning my lovely followers, I’m not sure if anyone else is feel under the weather and little bit poorly today, or pretty much just feeling just like this picture because it’s Monday morning, but I sure am. Over the last couple days I have been become a little unwell, stressed and very overwhelmed about starting university In 4 WEEKS TIME!! I AM OVER THE MOON that I have gotten in and have a place to be a STUDENT MIDWIFE, and me and Paige are the luckiest girlies in the world!! But moving away from home, starting a whole new life, starting a very intense course is really making me super nervous. I know that all the lovely followers that follow us and student midwifes in my cohort are super lovely and mostly feeling the same, so to know that we can all support one another is fab and be there for one another when we all truly need it. If anyone can give me or Paige any top tips on making these kind of situations easier (such as moving away and starting the midwifery course ) please pop up, or even if you would like to talk to one of us if you are feeling this way too and need a friend to talk to. It can be normal to feel this way.

This... 💪 What a way to wake up in the morning to read this clients review. This is what it's all about, making women feel confident and empowered in their choices 💛 After a difficult first labour, this client has now opted for a homebirth the second time around after completing her hypnobirthing classes last week! Hypnobirthing is for EVERY type of birth and its important to be prepared for every eventually, yet, making a decision that works best for you like this.. it couldn't make me any happier 💛

We made it to 35 weeks! (Last Friday. 🤷🏻‍♀️no updated bump pic. ) I cannot believe how fast this babe of ours is coming. 😍 My body is certainly preparing for labor, as just walking around the house a little bit starts mild contractions. 🤦🏻‍♀️ 1st trimester fatigue has come back with a vengence, so the bedrest isn't really as hard most days. Praying for birthday to be September 7th! 🙏🏻😁 It's so crazy to think by the end of next month, our life is going to be completely different in the best way possible! 🥰😍👶🏼 This mama is definitely ready for the next stage of motherhood. 😅

♥︎ This is what home birth looks like ♥︎ My previously used Swiss ball for those early contractions. My back up midwife taking all the notes while my midwife was snapping this photo. Our birth bag in the Moses basket full of everything we needed during and after labour. All the midwife gear for baby and Mumma checks. A supportive husband holding me during the throws of contractions. And a strong birthing Mumma just doing her thang in the comfort of her own home ♥︎

Amber🌼 I've been drinking Flourish Mums and Bubs "Pregnancy Wellbeing" tea throughout my pregnancy. I had tried a few pregnancy teas before I tasted Jodi's tea at a friends house. Wow my taste buds were so excited, such a delicious tea. I was so excited that I could finally drink Red Raspberry and Nettle Leaf without wishing it was over. The delicate twist of Sweet Orange Peel, Spearmint and Ginger is divine. The addition of the ayurvedic herb Shatavari is awesome, as I understand it's a great herb for balancing my hormones, I have felt very balanced throughout my pregnancy. My favourite part of the blend is the beautiful Roses, they make me feel like a pregnant goddess🌹 😊 You can find my organic herbal teas on my online store or if your blessed to live here on the Sunny Coast you can find them at the following stores. @cafenurcha @livelifepharmacynoosaheads @silowholefoods @hamperstogo @newearthcafe @bfreshcafe
