👍 or 👎? Did this position help you in labor?
You either love it or you hate it: laboring on toilet. Birth pros call it “dilation station” because of how much cervical change happens sitting here. You are able to naturally release your pelvic floor, open your hips wide for more space and anything that slips out in the process, lands in a good place 😜 You can even turn off the lights, bring your partner in and bathe in natural oxytocin creating your very own labor cave. One contraction here is as effective as two off the toilet. Also, emptying your bladder every 30 minutes creates more space for your baby and decreases pain during contractions. Trust us when we say meet us at ✨DILATION STATION✨

What's Love got to do with it?
WE SEE YOU.
GIVING WHATEVER IT TAKES.
Going long into the night.
Pouring out with your mind, body + soul.
Being love in action to your entire world.
This is an invitation to take a breath & open your heart and mind
to the possibility of committing,
to not just giving, but receiving,
to committing to letting go of the story that you don’t have enough time
for just a little SELF care.
SELF care doesn’t mean me first or me only.
It means me too.
It means a moment to refill and receive.
It means connecting with your SELF, deep withIN and saying thank you, I love you, you deserve a minute.
Love IS what flows from us and through you when there is no INTERFERENCE, mind, body + soul.
As we like to say here at the Café,
ENTER-FEAR-ance happens when the survival vibration enters
and takes up residency in your life.
What was designed to be a biological pit stop to keep you safe,
becomes a cage locked from the inside out.
SELF love and SELF care looks like releasing the interference of your flow and coming out of the cage and cave, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
And guess what y’all, helping release that flow is our A game.
We are HERE to Love you.
And we mean that with our whole hearts.
We can hold your baby while you receive,
hold your hand when it’s hard,
hold you high when it’s easy.
You can come here and laugh or cry or just quietly receive.
We’ve got all the hair ties, tampons, bandaids and tissues you need.
And most importantly we’ve got Love; for you and for what we do.
So when you’re ready, come on over and just take a moment
and refill your cup, your heart and your water bottle.
Love is what you came here for;
to give AND to receive.
We love you.
Peace IN, Peace OUT y’all.
Happy Valentine's Day

Do you know the because of the baby putting his hand on our mouth while we breastfeed him??
According to Zeljko Loparic (professor of philosophy at Unicamp and Winnicott scholar), in his mother's lap, when everything goes well (there is foster care and exchange of looks), the child learns the notion of ′′ mutuality ". The baby realizes that mom does something for him. Give him something (milk, snuggle, affection, safety, relief,...).
And over time, the baby has the desire to give something to the mother too.
One of the first signs of mutuality is very interesting. Winnicott when he watches the babies that suck, realizes that too soon they start putting their finger inside their mother's mouth.
The baby is getting something from the mother and wants to spontaneously give something to her. Winnicott calls this ′′ cross identification ". The baby identifies with the mother in this ′′ give and receive ". And this, according to Winnicott, is fundamental to the beginning of a healthy social life.
