We've been told that we "need" this for many reasons. And you might feel that you do. But, there are women who feel they should question this practice... And you should be one of them.

The Joy of Birthing offers Comfort Measures for Birth Workshops, Prenatal and Infant Massage, and Placenta Alchemy Services. The placenta contains your own natural hormones and is perfectly made for you, by you.

Experts agree that the placenta retains hormones. Reintroducing them to your system is believed to ease postpartum and menopausal hormonal fluctuations. The placenta is also a great blood builder and consumption can reduce the recovery period to a couple of days. Placenta consumption has been the final stage of birth for nearly all mammals and still takes place all over the world today. Your place

This lovely client decided to change the location of her birth so that I could encapsulate her placenta for her (she lives up state). ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑโค๏ธ

Today, she's going home with 205 capsules to help her through her postpartum and, if there's any left, menopause. ๐Ÿ’•

Unlike mammography, thermography is
painless, non-invasive, contact-free, and causes zero exposure to radiation!

Breast thermography has an average sensitivity & specificity of 90% while... "overall, the sensitivity of mammography is about 87 percent of women who truly have breast cancer...

The chance of having a false positive result after one mammogram ranges from 7-12 percent, depending on your age (younger women are more likely to have a false positive results). After 10 yearly mammograms, the chance of having a false positive is about 50-60 percent."

Protein is vital for your body and mind. It's also key to helping to regulate your blood sugar levels - so it's super helpful when going through that pregnancy nausea. Instead of the crackers, try to reach for something with higher protein.

Did you know that protein helps your body to do more than just "stay fuller longer?" True! It helps in regulating metabolism, hormones, building and maintaining muscle mass, regulating fat, healing wounds, and so much more!

Having trouble getting all of your protein in? Give us a shout! Amanda of Rooted Strength is a fantastic nutrition and movement coach who's got great ideas of how to help.

Estradiol is one of three hormones that have been found in encapsulated placenta in levels high enough to cause a physiological effect on a person. Studies have shown Estradiol to help people with Postpartum Depression. Studies also have shows that it does not affect breastmilk.

(Young SM, Gryder LK, Zava D, Kimball DW, Benyshek DC. Presence and concentration of 17 hormones in human placenta processed for encapsulation and consumption. Placenta. 2016 Jul;43:86-9. doi: 10.1016/j.placenta.2016.05.005. Epub 2016 May 10. PubMed PMID: 27324105)

(Pinheiro, E., Bogen, D. L., Hoxha, D., & Wisner, K. L. (2015). Transdermal estradiol treatment during breastfeeding: maternal and infant serum concentrations. Archives of women's mental health, 19(2), 409-13.)

For posting this! I had not previously seen this study.

You have rights. Know the facts.

You read that right.

Per the American College of OB/GYN's 2019 VBAC guidelines, the risk of maternal death during a planned vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) is 0.0019%.

Expressed another way, that is a risk of 1 in 52,600.

Did you have any idea the risk was that low?

Whereas the risk of maternal death with an elective repeat cesarean after one cesarean is 0.0096% or 1 in 10,000.

Again, both really small numbers but the risk of maternal death is five times higher in a repeat cesarean.

This is why when pregnant people are threatened with "you could die if you plan a VBAC," it falls flat.

But it is often really successful in coercing someone into a repeat cesarean... as well as eroding patient autonomy and any trust when the birthing person learns the facts.

As a L&D nurse told us, "There is no real informed consent anymore."

This is just yet another example.

ETA: Some people asked in the comments about the risk of fetal death. We discuss that here: https://vbacfacts.com/2012/04/03/confusing-fact-only-6-of-uterine-ruptures-are-catastrophic/

Others have asked about vaginal birth after classical cesarean: https://vbacfacts.com/2021/08/10/vbac-after-classical-t-j-incision/

Sheesh. FOURTY POUNDS of pressure AND RADIATION on your breasts. Sounds awful.

Did you know that a Mammogram puts an average of 40 ๐™ก๐™—๐™จ ๐™ค๐™› ๐™ฅ๐™ง๐™š๐™จ๐™จ๐™ช๐™ง๐™š on each breast? ๐‘ถ๐‘ผ๐‘ช๐‘ฏ!

Ever been told that you were "high risk" because your BMI was too high, so they didn't anticipate that you could have a baby on your own? Yeah. I have. And guess what, no complications.

BMI is a load of BS if you ask us. What do you think?

"Abdominal massage is a healing technique used by many ancient cultures, including the Mayans, Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and Thai Therapeutic Massage. However, when we get a massage in the United States, this part of our body is rarely touched. The abdomen is where the majority of our organs reside and giving this area of our bodies attention can have many benefits.

In the chakra system, the abdomen is home to the first three chakras. These include the root chakra, which is related to stability, safety, and our basic needs; the sacral chakra which is related to creativity, sexuality, pleasure, and self worth; and the solar plexus chakra, which is related to our personal power. The underlying organs in our abdomen include the bladder, reproductive organs, digestive organs, and more. Focusing massage over these area can help to release deep tension, increase blood flow, and reopen blocked or stagnant qi (energy).

The most obvious benefit of stomach massage is that it can aid digestion, but so much of our health can be improved by healing our abdomen. The gut holds a significant portion of our immune system and is also related to brain health, including memory and emotional health.

If our gut health is suffering, weโ€™ll feel the ramifications throughout our whole body. Self abdominal massage is simple and easy and can help stimulate the lymphatic and circulatory systems, improve digestive issues, decrease PMS symptoms and benefit fertility, release physical and emotional stress, and may even help reduce abdominal circumference. Maintain optimal abdominal health through a nutritious diet, movement, stress management, enough sleepโ€”and regular abdominal massage."

Stop doing cervical checks. They mean NOTHING unless you are having preterm labor and are needing to see what might be the next best course of action.
