YASSSSSSSS!!!!๐Ÿ‘‡

Each Hypnobabies mom knows what she needs and wants and we respect that. For many families, that will be an unmedicated birth. For others, that will be a medicated or surgical birth. They are ALL Hypnobabies births.

As an instructor, it is my job to fully prepare you- with the information, skills, confidence, and support- for any birthing journey your baby may need. To fully commit to Hypnobabies, you are only asked to open yourself up to accept whatever path your birthing takes, knowing it is the right one for you and your baby, and to recognize that your words, thoughts and mind(set) can be powerful assets in pregnancy and birth.

My next class starts January 14, 2021 and spaces are filling up fast. If you're interested in enrolling or learning more about Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis, reach out and let's chat! You can find me (Tara) at Three Rivers Hypnobabies or www.threerivershypnobabies.com

She also discusses the unique "eyes wide open" hypnosis experience that allows you to move and get in more comforting positions during delivery.

๐ŸŒŸThis is truly a fantastic program, and Kerry has excellent information in this episode for all women considering pregnancy, childbirth techniques, and delivery methods.

โ€œWhy the Need For Awareness
โ€ข Researchers estimate that almost half of the cesareans performed could be safely prevented.
โ€ข If families donโ€™t know these options exist they canโ€™t advocate for them.
โ€ข Cesareans can be more or less โ€œfamily friendlyโ€ depending on the practices and protocols at a facility and provider support.
โ€ข Preventable Cesareans may be responsible for up to 20,000 major surgical complications a year, including sepsis, hemorrhage, and organ injury.โ€

How to Deal With Houseguests As A New Mom

11/14/2021

A healthy baby is NOT the ONLY thing that matters. You are NOT one feeling or one emotion. You are a complex human being who is allowed to have more needs than just staying alive, and more desires than having a healthy baby. The systematic dismissal of the importance of birth experiences and disregard for comprehensive maternal health is, perhaps, the ultimate driving force behind my purpose as a doula and educator. The โ€œA healthy baby is all that mattersโ€ platitude is damaging and further perpetuates this disregard and dismissal of women and parents.
โ €โ €
First of all, I have *never* met a parent who wouldnโ€™t do anything necessary for the health of their baby, if recommended by a provider they *trust*. The healthiest parent and baby possible is the bottom line. But. OTHER THINGS MATTER TOO. Acknowledging that trust, autonomy, respect, being heard, and even hopes and dreams MATTER does NOT detract from oneโ€™s gratitude for their baby. It is normal and healthy to have an opinion about your body and birth!

Second, these needs can be met *regardless* of mode of delivery or birth preferences obtained/not obtained. When these comprehensive needs are met, many kinds of birth experiences can be positive.

Third. Some babies are not born healthy. How a mother or parent is treated its *always* important. Following the logic of โ€œa healthy baby is all that mattersโ€, then what matters when a baby is not healthy?
โ €โ €
Regardless of preferences, circumstances, controllables, and uncontrollablesโ€ฆHow one feels during and about their birth experience affects mental health, physical health, and bonding with their baby. That matters.

Sexism and racism are baked into our maternity care systems and our cultural attitudes about birth and those who give birth. LISTENING is one of the essential parts of deconstructing and dismantling these patriarchal attitudes.

This hierarchy of birth needs is based on Maslowโ€™s Hierarchy of Needs. I regard this hierarchy as imperfect and a work in progress!

Pre-Birth Waves: Braxton Hicks ๐ŸŒŠ

It is common to experience warm-up pressure waves during the last half of pregnancy known as โ€œBraxton Hicks contractionsโ€. These are sporadic uterine waves that tone and increase coordination of the uterine muscles in preparation for birth. Though not everyone can feel them, many of those who do say they experience a tightening feeling or โ€œlike a balloon being inflated in my bellyโ€. These warm-up waves may be very slight and other times very powerful, and they can vary with your activity. Some may not even notice them at all. These periods of warm-up pressure waves before birth are often referred to as โ€œfalse laborโ€, but thereโ€™s nothing false about them! We tend to think of them as warm-up exercises for your uterus, so they're definitely a good thing.

Pressure waves that continue for a few hours without leading directly into the birthing time are called pre-birth waves. These waves prepare the body and position the baby for childbirth. Towards the end of pregnancy, pre-birth waves tend to occur more frequently. Until the last few weeks of pregnancy, these waves will probably remain infrequent, mild, and irregular. Some people find they get more pressure waves when they're dehydrated, so be sure to drink plenty of water, especially as your guess date approaches.

Today is National Rainbow Baby Day, a day to acknowledge the child or children born after a baby that has died during pregnancy, birth, or early life. It is a day to honor the baby that brings such joy after the deep grief of loss; and to acknowledge the beauty that we see ever more clearly after enduring such heartbreak.

While we understand that not everyone connects with this term, or has the opportunity to carry a child after a loss, for those who do grow their family after losing a baby, it can be a powerful term and image. For those of you holding your rainbow babies in your arms, we are thinking of you and your tremendous journey. For those of you dreaming of having another child, or dreaming of being ready to try again, we are thinking of you with hope in our hearts.

It is truly a wonderful, beautiful mystery how much love the heart can hold.

Childbirth Hypnosis at its best!

Welcome to Three Rivers Hypnobabies!

I am Tara, a 2x hypno-mom, and Certified Hypnobabies Childbirth Instructor serving the Pittsburgh area. After having 2 calm, comfortable, and confident births using Hypnobabies Childbirth Hypnosis, I decided it was too good not to share! I am happy to offer group classes, private classes, and home study advantage classes to expecting families in the Pittsburgh area.

Hypnobabies is a 6-week, 18-hour complete childbirth education course that covers not only the basics of pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum but also teaches you self-hypnosis tools for an easier, more comfortable birth experience. Whether you are a first-time or experienced mom, there are many unique benefits to the program that can help you- regardless of your birth plan, background, faith or belief system- to have a safer, more comfortable, and empowering birth experience. Hypnobabies recognizes and embraces the fact that no two women, nor pregnancies, are the same AND that different, personalized birth experiences are desired. While many expectant women discover Hypnobabies on their pursuit for an unmedicated or natural birth, others, like myself, find it by way of searching for something to alleviate (completely normal) fears or anxiety about giving birth. Still others have found it helpful in gaining confidence throughout their pregnancy or to help heal from a previous traumatic birth experience.

Here you will find empowering, encouraging, and evidence-based pregnancy and childbirth information and inspiration. Please feel free to contact me for a complementary call or in-person meeting. I look forward to supporting you throughout your peaceful pregnancy and easy, empowering birth experience!
