Today, we want to shine a light on the incredible people who bring love, strength, and hope into the world every single day - our beloved midwives. 💖

To all the midwives out there, your dedication, compassion, and expertise make such a profound difference in the lives of countless families. Through the journey of birth, guiding with wisdom and tenderness, empowering families in moments of uncertainty, and enveloping them in support and understanding.

You stand by, nurturing not just bodies, but spirits. Your selflessness knows no bounds; you are there, unwavering, in moments of joy and in moments of sorrow, offering comfort and reassurance with a gentle touch and a comforting word.

Today, I invite you all to join us in celebrating these unsung heroes.

Tag your midwife in the comments below and share the sentiments of your experience with them.

Let's flood this space with gratitude and love, honoring the extraordinary individuals who dedicate their lives to welcoming new life into the world.

To every midwife who has touched our lives with your grace and expertise, thank you. You are the quiet guardians of the miracle of birth, and your impact resonates far beyond the birthing space. You are cherished, you are appreciated, and we see the sacrifices and dedication you hold, everyday in all you do for families and our community. Thank you 💕

The Groaning Cake.
Have you ever had a groaning cake before?
We recommend it, it is a great early birthing time project and super tasty or have made for a special birth blessing gathering. Either way it is one of our favourites.

The tradition of the groaning cake, or kimbly at (or following) a birth is an ancient one. Wives’ tales say that the scent of a groaning cake being baked in the birth house helps to ease the mother’s pain. Some say if a mother breaks the eggs while she’s aching, her labour won’t last as long. Others say that if a family wants prosperity and fertility, the father must pass pieces of the cake to friends and family the first time the mother and baby are “churched” (or the first time they go to a public gathering) after a birth. Many cultures share similar traditions…a special dish, bread, or drink, spiced with cinnamon, all spice, and/or ginger. At one time there was even a “groaning ale” made to go with it…

I have made groaning cake for many birth blessing gatherings. This recipe similar to a spiced apple cake and perfect combo with a caramel icing. It has apple, molasses, orange juice and spices and can really help to see a person through a long labour, or give them strength after the birth!

If you tried it, what did you think?

The recipe:
2 ½ Cups Flour
3 eggs
2 tsp. Baking powder
½ Cup oil
1 tsp. Baking soda
½ Cup orange juice
2 tsp. Cinnamon
¼ Cup molasses
½ tsp. Ground cloves
1 1/3 Cups sugar
1 ½ cups apple (grated, no skin)
1 tsp. Almond extract

Sift dry ingredients together. Add apple. Beat eggs. Add oil, orange juice, molasses and sugar. Add to dry ingredients. Mix well. Add almond extract. Bake at 350 F. for 35-40 minutes. Makes two 9 X 5 loaves or about 18 muffins.

Additions: raisins, dates, dried fruits, or nuts.

This recipe is found in Ami McKay's novel, The Birth House.

Support and strength from those around you is essential in making things more manageable. Sometimes there are no words, not even a specific task or many times what one thought would help does not have the effect of our intention, we sometimes feel the need to help or intervene, it’s hard feeling helpless. Sometimes help means to some just being of witness to the journey and the process of unfoldment. What did you find helped you the most in your birthing time from your team? Comment below ⬇️

Often life transitions unfold, while little time is taken to reflect upon the importance of these defining moments.

Our hope is to acknowledge their presence & give recognition to the journey we make as women, mothers and parents.

We can assist you in creating a nurturing ceremony for whichever phase of life you find yourself traveling through.

This may be controversial. There are some flaws in birth affirmations that don't always work for parents in their birthing time.

As someone who really appreciates the effectiveness of affirming and changing one's mindset through positive affirmation, I have seen it work against them in some individuals, especially when things unfold differently than envisioned over desired.

No matter what unfolds, be compassionate and gentle on yourself in these times and know deeply that you are doing the best you can with what you have and you are good enough just as you are.

Our team created a special gift to all the incredible and DIVINE doulas out there: 🌿💕 Link here: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/6peRrSyilfYgryyncYBZ1i?si=b8377dc276ee4d4a

Doulas, we know you carry the weight of the world on your shoulders as you nurture, support, and guide with unwavering care.

We see you juggle your own families needs with that of your clients, working long hours and functioning on little sleep.
Your dedication to others is awe-inspiring, but we also recognize the importance of self-care and moments of tranquility- just for you.

So, we've curated a collection of soothing melodies, soulful tunes, and just some great rhythms to help you release, unwind, and replenish your spirit after a long day of giving your all.

This playlist is crafted with love and gratitude, just for you.

Take a moment to sink into a cozy corner, close your eyes, and let the music wash over you! Embrace this time for yourself, knowing that you are cherished and appreciated for all that you do.

From one caregiver to another, may this playlist bring you solace, serenity, and a well-deserved moment of peace.

You deserve it. 💫 🌟🎶
