Waves..⠀
-⠀
Is this a word you used through your birthing journey?⠀
-⠀
As human beings we connect to water so naturally in many different levels.⠀
Either by the sound of it, the touch or just looking at it...⠀
So when we’re in labor, it is an instinctual thing that drives us to it. And for some, the best medicine.⠀
-⠀
So, using the word wave instead of contraction can have a huge impact in how we connect to our bodies as we travel through Birth.⠀
-⠀
Waves come and go.⠀
Sometimes the tide is higher, but the moon always draws it back.⠀
-⠀
-⠀
May your time be blessed by the ocean and all his spirits 🌕⠀

Uh oh... guilty question here making me examine the workaholic theme that is my life!! I am a single mother with post-traumatic stress disorder and my life is busy busy busy.

I love to work. I love to help others. It's a rare day I will just sit in front of the TV or go out with friends. I like to use my childcare options to see clients.

What people don't seem to understand is that for some people, this is the way they can live their life as happily as possible when they have experienced trauma.

So I feel guilty and also not guilty, because I know this is what is right for me.

In my spare time when I'm not looking after the children or working, I love to read. I'm getting into psychology at the moment and doing a lot of work on healthy boundaries and self-care. I have kind of come to hate the term self-care but when I use it in this context it means, working on your issues and making yourself emotionally strong.

I love to learn. I have just finished my first breastfeeding module and I'm on to the breastfeeding counsellor training now. I'm also doing a qualification in EFT, emotional freedom technique, which is a really fascinating way of releasing trauma in the body that I'm hoping to go on and help clients with.

I love love love spending time with my mama friends and letting the kids run wild. That is my happy place!
I love nature and spirituality and howling at the moon by the crashing waves. I know I will get back to that one day.

Sneak peek från mina egna förberedelser från nattens ofrivilliga vakentid! Hur förberedde ni er inför födseln? När kände ni er färdiga? Har ni några sista veckorna - tips? 😘
.
V.35. Kommit in i fasen "gravidinsomnia" och nyttjar det till vad jag är bäst på: att projektleda och planera 💪🏽
Med tanke på att jag planerade vårt bröllop i två år och jobbat som både wedding planner och projektledare i många år + nu är doula med sikte på barnmorska är det inte så otippat att jag visar mig vara #birthzilla eller hur 😅

Berättade för min man att min enda oro kring att föda hemma är att det ska gå så snabbt att vi inte hinner få upp alla props 😂🎊 🍾 #BirthParty

Today we wanted to share the beautiful ✨POSITIVE BIRTH STORY✨ with you from @themrsproject . Mirlah is a first time mum who gave birth to baby Ellis at her local birth centre 3 weeks ago. She used the⚡️DIGITAL PACK⚡️to help her prepare for her positive birth experience 🙌🏻.
.
We absolutely love this quote from her birth story: 'Dazed, amazed, overjoyed, overwhelmed, so immensely loved up and on the biggest high of my entire life.' We think she sums up that feeling after giving birth pretty nicely!
.

Head over to @themrsproject page and click the link in her bio to read her birth story now or use the swipe up on our stories to go straight there!

And if you'd like to give @thepositivebirthcompany ⚡️DIGITAL PACK⚡️a try too and make your birth better then hit the link in our bio now🔝🔝.

Wise words from @the_angela_gallo & @tynanrhea #swoon 😍
・・・
Let’s talk vaginal integrity and the complete bullshit that is the myth of pregnancy/birth ruining your kitty cat 🤦🏻‍♀️re: the topic of pussy/cunt/yoni/vulva in or around the realms of women + people and their relationship with sex, sensuality and their bodies.
.
First of all super SPECIAL shout out to my lady bits for birthing babies and being an 💯 A+ freak in the sheets ecstasy provider - your ability to be wet, warm, inviting and exceptional in all fields to which you apply yourself makes me so proud to be your gatekeeper 🙏🏻 Thank you.
.
Secondly, do y’all even understand how resilient and remarkable your reproductive system is? PLEASE do the research and prepare to be blown away by the intricacies of what happens within your womb. It feels like half the world is walking around like a zombie, completely unaware and disconnected from their own bodies. If you KNEW what your body could do, I guarantee your respect for it as a power making machine would improve drastically.
.
My concern is the narrative I consistently hear around ‘the integrity of your vagina’ after birth, as if your baby is a hurricane of destruction that leaves a gaping hole of destructions in its wrath. .
NO. NO. NO.
.
Does birth change your vagina? YES. And in instances of trauma, intensity and impact, these temporary and permanent changes can feel world rattling BUT the truth is this...
.
Birth doesn’t ruin your body. And it doesn’t ruin you. And it doesn’t rob you a life full of passion and pleasure. Your cervix, your vagina, your uterus are unreal. The ways they stretch and bounce back would blow you away. Please avoid partaking in conversation that demeans the value / worth / integrity of the vagina and vulva after birth. Rebel against what the media and society tell you to believe - this is YOUR pussy - you make the rules. And your relationship with your body is yours to command and enjoy - the language you use, the story you subscribe to, the lovers and opinions you let into your life WILL affect that.

Muito amor e gratidão em uma foto só...

“{Postpartum}⠀
#fourthtrimester 💕 living in the newborn haze of sleep deprivation, unmade beds, pjs all day, too much tv, millions of nappies and breastfeeding.all.day 🤱⠀

I’ve been so honest with you all through my pregnancy journey, and I wanted to continue to be honest after. I don’t want people to think I’ve just bounced back (😂lol) or suddenly to hide myself away - why should I share photos of my big bump and be proud of it, then suddenly become ashamed as soon as the baby is out? 🤷‍♀️⠀

As a society, we are so conditioned to hide our postpartum bodies, to be ashamed of loose skin and stretch marks and saggy bellies and breasts. Theres so much pressure to bounce back, suck it in, cover it up... But the stupidest part is that most of us have it, to some degree or another!! 🤷‍♀️⠀
So why the hell are we all hiding away - fear of judgement? We should be proud of our bodies that grew, nourished and birthed our precious babies, and continue to feed them once they’re out. ⠀

I would be lying if I said I loved the way my body looks now, but I’m ok with it. Carrying two very large babies, gaining and losing 33kg then gaining another 25kg and having 2 c cections (which by the way - I had no idea about the C-section tum until I got it 😬) has left me with lots of loose skin, more stretch marks than I’d ever imagined and a bellybutton that is unrecognizable. ⠀
But I’m not out to try and “get my body back”... why? because it never bloody went anywhere!! It was here the whole time, growing humans - I’m pretty sure I should be giving it a damn break not punishing it when it’s done so much for me 💕⠀

Plus, right now I just want to eat when I’m hungry (which is ALL the time) take it slow and enjoy this precious time, because it will be over in the blink of an eye! 💙💜”

Love this post by @douladna 🤗
A postpartum doula can be such a lifesaver! Cooking nutritious meals, dishes, laundry, and rocking a baby-who-refuses-to-sleep, so YOU can start to feel like yourself again. Don't bring baby home without one! 😁 #birthmatters #dallasdoula #birthworker #dfwdoula #postpartummatterstoo
