EVERY DROP COUNTS

💕💓

Kyla asks, “A kind family member has offered to put some money towards a grocery delivery service for us OR for some hours with a postpartum doula after the birth of our first baby. What would others find more helpful?”
What did you find helpful in the days and weeks postpartum?

💙💕🌈🖤🤰

With recent events posted virtually over the last few days and me being in a FACEBOOK LEAVE for personal trying to having a baby reasons, I felt the need to get on my business page and share my story.

I am a white woman. I have lived a privileged life, I’ve also educated myself on systematic racism and ways to challenge myself to be a better advocate and ally for my brothers and sisters of color.

I am married to an amazing, strong, kind, and irreplaceable Haitian man. Our children are beautiful and we have been blessed with good health for the most part!

In our home and in my business we believe:

#BlackLivesMatter
#scienceIsReal
#LoveIsLove
#FeminismIsForEveryone
#NoHumanBeingisillegal
#BeKindToAll
#JesusLovesUnconditionally

Also if you need any breastfeeding support I HIGHLY suggest contacting Lactation Counseling Services #supportlocalbusiness #SupportFamiliesOfColor #RiseUp

evidencebasedbirth.com What is an estimated due date, and how is it determined? What are the risks of going past your due date? Does induction increase the risk of Cesarean? At which point do the benefits of being electively induced outweigh the risks? Does a person’s goals and preferences for their births

I love this!

👋🏼Hey there, I’m Bryce @mombrain.therapist I post about motherhood and everyday mental health. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
In case you needed a reminder...⁣

We get to decide what our motherhood looks like. We don’t have to re-create someone else’s version, or live up to another ideal. Ours will look different, because we are all unique humans having unique motherhood experiences. And that’s ok! ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Do you ever feel pressure to live up to someone else’s mothering? How do you explore and experiment with the type of mom you want to be? ⁣⁣⁣⁣

The Gentle Cesarean: More Like A Birth Than An Operation

❤ I’d love to help guide you through learning more about #gentleCesarean

npr.org The goal is simple, the techniques easy. Let the mother see her baby being born, if she wants to, and give her the baby immediately following the birth, so they can bond before the baby is taken away.

THANKFUL providers are FINALLY seeing the importance of the support we provided for our clients as essential!

I have gotten word from a friend birthing with Coastal that NHRMC is allowing doula support again in the hospitals!!!

This is HUGE and AMAZING news and I can’t wait to support families in the hospital setting again!

Separating mothers with COVID-19 from their newborns does more harm than good

theconversation.com The WHO recommends women should be encouraged to breastfeed straight after birth, for both the mothers's and baby’s health, including increasing baby’s immunity.

Seek IBCLC SUPPORT!

IBCLC FRIENDS!
Please tag your businesses below 💕💓

Did you know?

An IBCLC is the perfect person to reach out to for support! They can help you come up with a plan to seriously ditch the shield for the remainder of your nursing relationship 💕
PM Me and I’d be happy to point you towards many local breastfeeding resources!

You got this; every drop counts! 💕

***MYTH-BUSTING MONDAY***
#mythbustingmonday

MYTH: Nipple shields are an effective solution to most nipple soreness during the first days after birth.

FALSE.

“Often, nipple shields are recommended within the first few days of birth. Frequently in these cases, the shields are not needed and are handed out without proper instructions for using and weaning from them – a shield should generally not be used during the first week after birth unless there is an obvious problem such as prematurity or difficulty latching which is attributable to some physical
characteristic of the baby.

Nipple shields should in general be considered a short-term solution and should be used under the guidance of a lactation consultant.”

Let's talk about informed consent...

If you do not understand something, you are allowed to ask as many questions as you need to understand. BEFORE you make a decision. It is your RIGHT to understand everything happening to your body, the procedures being done, the medication offered, tests conducted, and EVERYTHING in between.

Hiring a postpartum doula can help with this situation! #DoulaSupport #birthworker

This is spot on.

This campaign needs you now

I’ll wear a mask, I’ll take a test for covid every time, I can carry my certificates to prove I’ve studied and trained to support women, I’ll comply to have my temp check upon arrival, & I will even wear a c-section gown if that means you will let us back in.
