Amazing ❤️❤️❤️
Due dates in pregnancy often cause concern for parents if they feel like labor isn't close.
.
But you have to remember that it's a guess, and not exact. No one can accurately predict when a human baby will be born, they can simply give you a baseline as to an expected time of when the baby MIGHT arrive.
.
Don't focus on it to much, just know that babies come when they are ready.
.
Relax, breathe, practice self care, and wait for baby's arrival 🥰🥰🥰

Good information 🥰

"I’m now working on an article about how providers approach parental requests (often demands) for virginity exams. Which aren’t real, but many providers will still do a version of a routine external or internal exam based on such a request. Virginity is a harmful, androcentric, heteronormative, and misogynistic construct. I can’t even count how many times I’d been asked by parents to evaluate their child based on harmful beliefs. I’ve written before (link below) about all of the variations in hymenal rings and hymenal tags, and now it’s time to revisit the topic from the perspective of parental vs adolescent patient consent.

Providers: make sure you know your state’s laws surrounding privacy for s*xual and reproductive health visits for young patients. Know to whom lab tests and billing will be sent. Know where the free and sliding scale clinics are. Know that s*x is far more than pe*******on, and real concerns around s*xual safety involve much more than any exam could demonstrate."

This is an awesome photo showing one of the BEST ways to get the baby out.
.
DILATION STATION! 💯

Aka the "Get it done position."
.
It's the best way to release a pelvic floor and help a baby descend into the pelvis.
.
🚽you are naturally prone to relaxing your pelvic floor and perineum while sitting on the toilet.

🚽the bathroom is a place of privacy and solitude and you are used to relaxing in this room.

🚽you are using gravity.

🚽you are opening your pelvis.

🚽you are allowing your baby lots of room to rotate and navigate the birth canal.

🚽you can also turn around and straddle the toilet with a pillow in front of you for comfort.

It's called the “dilation station” for a reason. Doulas often encourage moms to spend some time laboring on the toilet. It’s not uncommon for a baby to come out rather quickly after that.

Heyyy Doulas!

Let's be honest-
We have been in a spot where we want to begin but don't know what to do first.

1. Asking folks for their training org on Facebook-
But we don't do our own search or know what research to do.

2. Not Connecting With A Coach Or Mentor
But what got us to the point to sign up for a training- what won't get us to the point of completed certification.

3. Forgetting To Do Research On The Training + Certification Process
Listen, the workshop is the first step....In a line of steps you will be required to take.

4. Training As A Birth Doula Even Though There Is No Room In Your Lifestyle For Birthwork 😬
Chillllllllle- birthwork is s*xy until we realize we work a 9-5, have small children, have a partner, volunteer, and so on and so on. There is no room for traditional birth doula support- but we can't admit it.

5. Refusing To Get To Know The Local Birthwork Community Before Taking A Training 💔
So many people say I have to create a resource list- but I don't know anyone locally. 😬
I can't get into the hospitals- and I don't know any of the local homebirth midwives. 😞
I can't get any clients 😯
Community will assist with a lot of these things.

This mom just had a vaginal birth after 2 cesareans 🥰🥰🥰

VBAC is possible for many with the right support.

Photo shared from @birthbecomesyou

This photo not only shows a mom standing while delivering her baby, but joy of seeing her rainbow 🌈 baby for the first time 🥰🥰🥰
.
Did you know that you don't have to lay down to deliver a baby?
.
Do you know how much standing creates room in your pelvis for the baby to come down and out?
.
Did you know that standing uses gravity to it's advantage?
.
Did you know that Midwives & Dr's can still catch your baby if you're standing up, and your baby won't just fall on the floor.

This photo shows so much rawness, power, strength, joy, emotion and more ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Don't shoot the messenger 🔫 👩🏿‍🦱

⭐ Telling you that you're having a big baby is a scam.

⭐ Late pregnancy/third trimester ultrasounds are notoriously off.

⭐ Induction/Cesarean for a "suspected big baby" is NOT evidence based care.

⭐ Your body would NOT grow a human to big for your body to push out 🎤.

⭐ STOP LISTENING TO THESE LYING DR'S WHO HAVE THEIR OWN AGENDAS AND AREN'T REALLY LOOKING OUT FOR THE BEST INTEREST OF YOU AND YOUR BABY 🗣️🗣️🗣️

04/22/2022

Between 15-32% of expectant folx will experience "Back Labor" at the onset of labor, with this number decreasing to 5-8% at the time of delivery.
.
This is usually caused by baby being in an Occiput Posterior position causing one to feel more pain in their back than they do in their lower abdomen, which is where most expect to experience contractions.
.
As a Doula, we recognize these things going on and work with the birthing person to help baby rotate into a better position, while also providing comfort measures to help with the sensations.
.
This mom gave birth in 3 hours (from start to finish) with the help of her trained, skilled, and qualified Doula.
.
No Epidural
.
No Pain Meds
.
If you are pregnant, consider hiring a Doula. Frfr. We are here to help and support you during your birth.

Great post from Ocean Hypnobirthing @oceanhypnobirthing

This is something that comes up often for people, so here's some info to help you better understand.

👉 Nuchal cords are a variation of normal and rarely cause a problem.

🤔 What if i told you that nuchal cords are as common as 1/3 of all pregnancies.

👉 It looks pretty scary to see something wrapped around a babies neck but we have to remember they don't breathe through their lungs, they get oxygen and blood through the cord.

👉 Ok, but what about the cord being compressed and stopping that?

👊 Well, natures got you covered.
The cord is covered in a jelly substance called Wharton's Jelly.

👉 This is there to protect the veins and arteries in the cord. To stop them from being compressed and it does a fantastic job and means that the cord can squish into all sorts of amazing things including knots without causing a problem.

👉 In fact, the cord being around the babies neck is a good thing. If it were around the babies head it would get squashed coming out from under the pubic bone as this is a tight squeeze.
So it being tucked under the chin around the neck is actually a great way of stopping this from happening.

👉 Once born you (or your midwife) can easily slip the cord over your babies head, sometimes doing a somersault flip on the way out.

✨I keep saying it, natures unbelievably clever and thinks of everything.

Thanks @badassmotherbirther for sharing these photos. 💕💕💕

Breech is a variation of normal 💗

It is not an emergency (in most cases) 💗
.
Vaginal birth is still an option with a trained/skilled care provider 💗
.
Breech doesn't have to = C-section

Amazing ❤️❤️❤️

Wow! Check out this amazing photo taken by @littlerosephotography_

"This is where your baby lives, and grows for 9 (or so) months.
You can see the placenta at the top with the umbilical cord attached, which supply's a constant supply of oxygen and nutrients, and taking away waste. You also can see the amniotic sac which is what encapsulates your baby keeping them safe and at a regulated temperature.

It is just incredible to think that not only do you create a human from just two cells but also you grow an entire organ that sustains and enables life in 9 short months."
