Good info to have if you're traveling for the holidays.
Self care is important, too ❤️

So impressive!!
"Authors suggest that if clinicians want to use weight loss as a gauge of milk intake, they calculate baby’s weight loss not from birth weight, but from their weight at 24 hours. According to their findings, this could neutralize the effect of the mother’s IV fluids on newborn weight loss."
One more reason to hire a postpartum doula. Overnight shifts - doulas do that 😀

What a perfect analogy.

boredpanda.com Grief sucks. Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences you'll have to endure in your life, there is simply no avoiding the heartache and intense feelings of emptiness.

Birthing From Within

What a great visual!

Being okay with discomfort is something we often explore in Birthing From Within classes.

It's likely that birth and parenting will bring many moments, if not hours, days and weeks of discomfort at different times.

Understanding your own responses and having more awareness of this, as well as finding ways to move through this can be very helpful.





Good to know!

Now THAT is determination!

DETERMINED MOM: This pregnant woman went into labor, but was still determined to cross the stage at college graduation. So, she fulfilled two dreams in one day. 🎓👶https://cbsn.ws/2AlevaB




So true ❤️

There are so many kinds of opening that happens to give birth to a baby. Opening the heart to the greatest love you may have ever known, opening the mind to all of the possibilities, opening to self compassion, opening to flexibility, deep trust and courage.
In what ways did you open to the experience of birth?

For Centuries, These Asian Recipes Have Helped New Moms Recover From Childbirth

"And perhaps there is another ingredient in these stews which helps new mothers to recuperate: community. 'The whole village would be there and people would be cooking and taking care of your baby,' says Wong of the postpartum practices in pre-industrial China. 'The mothers were really pampered.'"

I can't wait to read the book discussed in this article, Mothers to Mothers: A Collection of Traditional Asian Postpartum Recipes!

npr.org Postpartum soups and stews have traditionally been prepared for new moms by Asian grandmothers and aunts, the recipes passed down orally. A new cookbook seeks to preserve them before they're lost.

Doctors urged to increase depression screening for pregnant women and new moms

"Robles [a psychiatrist and faculty at the Long School of Medicine at UT Health San Antonio who was not involved in the AAP's new report] also suggests we check in frequently with new parents and offer to be helpful by dropping off meals, watching the baby while the new parents nap and, most importantly, listening to them without judging."

abcnews.go.com The American Academy of Pediatrics is urging doctors around the country to increase screening of women for perinatal depression.


So true 😂😂

Omg I’m dying😂
