Some dads want to be right there, receiving their #birthing baby, and it is either planned between the couple and requested in advance, or it just feels right for them at the time. This #NewDad is rocking it as a #BabyCatcher
Ahhhhmazing picture @cradledcreations!

This side-lying position is a great alternative to the classic semi reclined or flat on back birthing. It's also known as 'left lateral'. It allows the sacrum and coccyx to move as baby descends through the birth canal, creating more space and utilising more of the range of movement the pelvis has to offer for birthing. As a doula I may encourage this position especially if the woman is exhausted and happy to stay on the bed. It can be used with (or without) an epidural and a stirrup leg can be raised to support her upper leg or a partner or midwife could also help here too. It is far more beneficial to both mother and baby than the classic semi-reclined position often routinely used - which it far more beneficial to the caregivers than mother and baby.

I don't exactly remember at what stage this was taken. I remember walking around all day. My contractions started at 6 am. I debated telling my husband to stay home but sent him anyway and told him not to leave the depot for an hour. After and hour I asked him to just come home. With that Melbourne traffic I was afraid he'd miss it since you know 45 minute last birth. He got home about 7 am. This was taken that afternoon. All day I had been saying, "im sorry this is taking so long, once my contractions regulate out, shit is going to get intense quick!!!" That never happened. I walked and walked and walked. In the shower. Out the shower. In the pool. Out the pool. Squat. Birth ball. All fours. Walk more. Repeat. As I was walking past my gorgeous friend @sugarimages_photography I started having a contraction. I closed my eyes and blindly groped for a wall. A chair. The side of the pool. Something. I kept grasping until my hand found Katie's shoulder. She said "here, lean on me babe, it's ok" and so I did. I leaned hard on her as she kissed the baby I witnessed born into this world. This image brings so much emotion to me. My friend. My birth photographer. My working colleague. A client (I photographed her birth). She is everything to me. Literally ❤️ image taken by the luscious @angelawombwarrior

No matter how intense labour gets, your body will give you a rest in between contractions. This baby was born about 20 mins after this photo was taken. #waterbirth #ruralmidwife #korumidwifery #birthsupport

8 years later, reunion with this little guy! #doula #birthsupport

Our next Positive Birth Movement meetup is coming up on June 10th @ 1pm. This is a special Positive Birth scheduled especially on the weekend so Dads can attend. It would be great if mums can attend with Dads to listen to other dads share their birth stories from their point of view and be able to ask questions in a comfortable and relaxed space. #positivebirthmovement #positivebirthmovementgoldcoast #positivebirthbook #pregnancy #education #dads #moms #hypnobirthing #goldcoastdoula #goldcoast #placentaencapsulation #birth #childbirth #childbirtheducation #empoweredbirth #birthsupport #birthpartners

Support.
Whether it's a doula, significant other, friend, family member, midwife, or a doctor... everyone needs support during this emotional and physically exhausting time.
Who was your support when you gave birth??

I quite often hear things like 'a doula is someone you hire for a water birth isn't it?' Absolutely not! A Doula is there to support YOUR birth no matter what that looks like. I have supported women through natural drug free births, planned caesarean and everything in between.
No matter your choices I will be there to help you to be informed supported and respected in your birth.

On the eve before my 38th birthday (really??!) I feel happy. Whilst enjoying the fabulous views today, sunshine and some surprise early birthday celebrations thanks to my beautiful friend I found a moment to reflect on my past year. I've deepened my roots here on the Coast, feel fully settled and at home with no desire to move elsewhere...I've arrived. That alone is something to be grateful for as it's taken a good 25 years of my life to get to this point! My passion and love to support families through pregnancy and birth has continued to give me great learnings over the past year and fills me with excitement when I look ahead, I feel there is still so much to give, learn and experience. My friendships have deepened, I am so happy to have some incredible women in my life who inspire me, hold me and make me feel at home...thank you. What also came to my mind was that there is one aspect of my life that's new, which has developed over the past year and that is my relationship with exercise. I don't want to make a fuss out of it but for me it is huge that for the first time in my life I'm fit, feel strong and am actually enjoying to RUN. It's something I never imagined possible but it's happened and when I step on a treadmill these days I am excited to feel my body. Ha! Another piece in the puzzle towards feeling connected, with both my feet on the ground and strong enough to hold others. Life's good! 😃🌸🙏🏻

This is my definition of a midwife. In my personal journey I haven't had the pleasure of having a midwife who fits this definition.

But I do know a few and I have had the privilege of seeing a couple of clients supported by this type of midwife.
Do you know an amazing midwife who fits this definition? Tag her or share with her. Let's shout out to those strong, supportive, caring (mostly) women who are helping improve maternity care for women.

💜 Nada me emociona más, que ver profesionales adaptándose a la mujer de parto. Y no mujeres de parto, adaptándose a protocolos e intervenciones innecesarias 😻😻😻

Did you know that weaning, from the breast or the bottle, isn’t a single event, it’s an ongoing process. The start is the introduction of solid food, and the process of weaning can last weeks, months, or even years, depending on what you feel is best for you, your baby, and your family!

I love this line from @waitressmusical- babies are not the only ones born in the delivery room! Moms, dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters, BRAND NEW FAMILIES are created with every birth. So Beautiful.

I am always honored to serve diverse families in my doula practice, including LGBTQI people, single parents, surrogates, adopting parents, and more!

My two births this week have been mid afternoon babies. That's a little unusual but I sure love walking out feeling amazing and excited for a tiny new life just starting in the glorious sunshiny day and a new mom who was empowered and will remember this day. #utahmoms #loganutah #logan #cachevalleyutah #lovewhatido #birthdoula #birthsupport #afternoonsun #birthday

🚌Ummmmm Nixon... put some clothes on dude, your parts are showing 😏
-
Nope, Nixon isn't my son's name - it's the name of our van! Our boy (with wheels) is a 1974 Volkswagen Westfalia that was preserved in a barn for over 20 years, coming to us with only 53k miles on him... unheard of for a 40+ year old van!
-
Since he was sitting unused for a while, it took us almost 2 months just to clean him out and reupholster the benches, mattress pieces, etc. In fact, I still have to redo the step stool (used to come down from the pop top) and the captains box that sits between the 2 front seats. And that's honestly still just the beginning of our list! 😟
-
But so far, he has offered our family a sense of freedom we had not previously experienced and has already imposed numerous lessons about patience, trust, focus, and presence. He has helped my family come closer and is my newest business partner as well!

So excited to have completed the DONA Birth Doula Training this weekend!!! I cannot wait to begin this new adventure of being a voice for moms, babies, and families.

You've given birth. You hold your baby in your arms. The experience of your birth, depending on how things unfolded feels raw, big, overwhelming, full on...you're just not quite sure how to feel about it. That's ok. For now, the biggest priority is to fall in love and focus your emotional energy on the gorgeous baby you've grown and brought into the world. And to establish breastfeeding if that's what you choose to do. Knowing how you feel about your birth takes time, it's like the dust needs to settle a bit until you can make sense of your emotions. Give yourself that space and consciously notice how your feelings might change or what stands out to you over time. One thing's for sure, you've done amazing, mama! 💖
