I’m getting involved again with the Arizona birth network and excited for the West Valley birth Expo on March 5! Come on out and see me! 87th Ave. and Kelton Lane￼￼…just west of Cracker Barrel
It’s all fun and games
And sexy breathing exercises for birth
And romantic plans about how he’ll take the baby while you do yoga every day
Until you’re 10 days postpartum
Still bleeding and soaked in breastmilk
Riding a roller coaster of hormones and sleep deprivation
And your lovely partner forgets to pick up a smoothie on his way home from the grocery store
And you lose your sh✨t
Like sobbing into the bathroom sink
Like cursing his mother
Like wondering why you ever procreated with someone capable of such unimaginable selfishness
And then, when the storm has passed, and you’ve had a snack- you realize
Two shaky, raw, sleep deprived humans
Trying to be life rafts for one another
While sinking into the depths of exhaustion and stress
Keeping the tiniest, most fragile, precious being afloat
Is hard AF
We weren’t meant to do this alone
We were not meant to be sent out to sea on a tiny little life boat with no map
Even the most loving, stable partnership can sink under the weight of operating in survival mode while finding your footing as parents
So, if you’re out there, treading water
Buried in laundry and breastmilk
Surviving on freezer pizza and three hours of sleep
Thinking mildly unkind thoughts about the person you chose to parent with
Because he can’t seem to calm the baby or remember your smoothies or grasp the depths of the earth shaking transition you’re navigating
You’re not alone
And it will get easier
One sleepy, shaky day at a time

Another study. Try to show all info as it unfold.
Covid vaccinations are not linked to pre-term births, researchers report. Women who were vaccinated while pregnant were at no greater risk of delivering prematurely, nor of having small babies.
Mother's Searing Post Begs Exhausted Moms to Stop Making Excuses for 'Sh*tty' Husbands This mother didn't candy-coat anything in her empowered message to tired working moms.
Stop spreading untrue, scary stories! Natural birth is actually easier! Beautiful!!
Baby's weight 5.46 kg (12 pounds)
Gestation: 42 weeks
Labour: a quick 3 hours
Birth place: home - birth pool in the play room
This is her 3rd baby.
And - intact perineum.
Midwife Jo Hunter says it all:
Stop telling women they can’t birth big babies out of their vagina!
Reposted from @blissful.herbs
Probably one of the things my clients are most anxious about is tearing during birth. I mean. It's understandable. No one exactly wants to think on that too hard.
These illustrations show the pelvic floor muscles, how they wrap and overlap, and ultimately how they move aside to allow baby to be born.
The biggest contributors to preserving your perineum (space between vagina and anus) during birth are:
🌀Wait for the uncontrollable urge to push - This can mean baby is in the best position for birth and that it will happen more quickly/easily
🌀Easy does it - As baby is crowning, give little pushes between contractions and nudge baby down and under that pubic bone. Listen to your care provider to help with cues on how to slow down or push harder.
🌀Position - Upright positions can be much more productive speed-wise, but might put additional pressure on those tissues. Find a nice balance between gravity and side lying positions, etc.
🌀Compresses - Ask your provider if they have warm compresses to ease your tissues and help them relax around your baby's head.
🌀Good 'ole genes - Some people just have tissues that are better at stretching!

Direct quote of photographer (S.Maguire) "This image was one of the hardest for me to take, because I am hand holding a 600mm Canon lens, and I am laughing so hard, as were the other 2 people standing next to me. This poor mother black bear, had 5 cubs. Yes, 5. She sent them up the tree and sat down and began to look at her poor, battle-stretched stomach. The man next to me said, “every woman that has had children understands this”…she kept moving the folds of her skin around and looking at her belly."
