This little baby’s last day being 2yo 😢
Our journey had just begun 3 years ago when we made the decision to #homebirth Lavay unassisted. Looking back now it’s clear we were making the life long commitment to pursuing life on our terms, knowing that it would be through our own efforts alone, that would bring about the life we’ve dreamt for our family. Tonight Lavay and I had her favorite snack (corn🌽🤣) and watched a movie together.🍿❤️ #unassistedbirth #childbirth #childbirtheducation #birthdaygirl #birth #diy #3yearsold #daughters #daddyslittlegirl

I 💗 wearing my Bumi Sehat ‘Gentle Birth Heals Mother Earth’ shirt 🌏
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I wear it to support @bumisehatbali and to spread the amazing things that @iburobin does for the women of Bali and the world❣️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I also wear it because I too believe gentle birth heals Mother Earth and I want to spread the message far and wide. 🙌🏽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love the picture of the woman in a squat position, birthing her baby and about to embrace it. Very powerful and profound moment for us women. One that means so much to us and our baby. One we never forget. 🤰🏽👶🏽🌀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes when I’m wearing it people will have a look and a read then don’t know where to look next. Sometimes they open their mouth to say something but then nothing comes out. Or they just stare at me for ages 😂😂😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My husband joked ‘well your wearing a picture of a lady in a spready having a baby’ 😜
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m just spreading a message (Pardon the pun). I’m getting people out of their comfort zones and giving them food for thought. That’s where the change is. ✨✨✨
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Oh and I actually don’t like the attention I get personally for wearing it. I’m WAY out of my comfort zone. I just believe in what I do so much. I wear it for the birthing women in our community and the world 👯‍♀️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ps- I also have a hair clip and a necklace 👏🏽
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PPS- you can donate to Bumi Sehat via their website or via a visit in person. Buying a shirt is a donation in itself. They also love probiotics that don’t need to be refrigerated. 👌🏽

// b r e a s t f e e d i n g // It takes persistance and time, it's not going to happen overnight. You may experience frustration, when things seem like they aren't working. When you and baby finally get the hang of it, you will be beaming with confidence. All of the patience and tears have paid off. Not only are you giving your baby the best possible nutrition, but you are giving them comfort and bonding with them. Sure, there will be times when you will wonder if all the leaking and pain is worth it. But the hormones released when nursing will provide relaxation to you and your baby. It will take some trial and error to get it just right, and you may feel exhausted at times. But you are teaching your baby to trust. You are giving your baby love by breastfeeding.

Ok back to those #oxytocinvibes. ✨ THIS! This is #optionssupportrespect. Thank you @midwifeangelina for sharing. And thank you @instagram for stopping your censorship of #birth so we can share this. ❤️ Watch her remove the veil (amniotic sac) from baby’s head at the end. Incredible.

This couple was constantly told from others that mommy would beg for the epidural, that she wouldn’t be able to naturalbirth, that she would end up heading to the hospital, that she was crazy to do something like this. Don’t let others dictate your pregnancy, labor, birth, or parenting. Hmmmmm, I think now they’re believers. 😊 @midwifeangelina

Feeling all the feels this arvo as we approach the 6 week postpartum mark of our journey with Jed. This has to be one of my fav pics of his birth 💙Just a couple of hours prior to this, labour was in full swing and Jasper couldn’t tear himself away from the room. No matter how hard Mum and Chayne tried, he knew something was up and wasn’t gonna miss out ! I remember asking Grant what the time was ? It was an hour before Jasper was to go down for the night. At this point his wee visits were becoming extremely distracting, as labour became more intense and I remember my midwife saying quietly, “As soon as he’s asleep this baby will come.” She knew I couldn’t fully give myself over to birthing Jed, because my Mummas heart was still very much with Jasper and his needs. 6:30pm finally rolled around and Jasper went off to bed and by 7:20pm we had Jed in our arms. God graced me with 50mins of time to focus solely on birthing Jed, because as soon as he was here little toddler feet came pattering down the hallway and into our room again ! Not one to miss out on the action Jasper got to meet Jed at a few minutes old. Where he then proceeded to baptise him with an enormous sneeze !! What’s a bit of natural immunity between brothers I say ! 👶🏻👦🏼🤷🏼‍♀️😂

Ahhhh. Sweet relief. Love. Accomplished. Happiness. Empowered. This was the moment immediately after discovering our baby was a little girl. I think this photo captures exactly how I was feeling. 😊😍😭🦄🤩💓👊🏼👊🏼🤟🏼💞
Swipe to see this sweet girl being welcomed earthside 💗
We celebrated this sweet little lady’s fifth birthday the other day, and I thought what a great time to share her birth story! 💗
We had been blueberry picking that morning, and I was SOOO over being pregnant! My HUGE baby belly, the heat, and sheer exhaustion was getting the best of me, and I was so defeated. Didn’t know how the fuck I could possibly be pregnant another second/minute/hour, let alone day(s) !?!! 😫😥... We got home around 12 that day, and Tony had been up all night from working the night shift, so he decided to take a nap while Truly (she was 18 months at the time) took her nap, before he had to go in that night. Well, Lucy had other plans; and as soon as he closed his eyes, the contractions started.. I ignored them at first, knowing I had been having Braxton Hicks for weeks. I surfed Facebook, trying to distract my mind. They got stronger. Harder to pretend they weren’t indeed happening. I messaged my friend to get her birth ball ready, and wait for me to give her the thumbs up to come, in case this was it!! It was now around 2pm.
Not even five minutes later, I was in the bedroom, waking Tony up, telling him to start filling the pool and that THIS WAS IT!! He didn’t believe me.. 🤣🖕🏼 He also just wanted to sleep, so I don’t blame him! ... So I kept doing my thing, which was at this point to pace, and go back on fb to try to ignore the obvious. Damn, denial is a powerful thing!! 😂

💕👶Its time! Only 2 days left until my baby granddaughter is supposed to make her apperance!! #due #baby #pregnancy #granddaughter #babygirl #soon #anytime #birth #fullycooked #excited #firstgrandbaby #newparents #spoiled #readytopop #paitence

Gracias a Dios por siempre permitirnos trabajar con un excelente equipo de profesionales💕

Umbilical cords can tell you some cool stuff about your baby inutero.
The amount of wrappings of blood around the cord acts as an indicator of how mobile and active your baby was. Lots of coiling, such as the one pictured, shows a very active baby. This is good because an active baby is a healthy baby. When you're sick you don't move around as much, so the same goes with babies inutero. Super cool ey
