I just had an amazing, and much needed, weekend. I saw an amazing film, ate delicious food, danced, climbed a tree, fell asleep to an ocean documentary, and cleaned my entire house. Now, I have a lavender bath bomb awaiting me. .

I finish up teaching a Childbirth Education class tomorrow and it's going to involved 🍩 and some of my favorite juicy topics. I hope you all have a great week. .

Nothing warms my heart more than involved dads. Papas who step up and come to the child birth classes and actively engage and learn and support their lady. I love seeing dads baby wear and carrying diaper bags and owning fatherhood. They aren't "babysitting", they aren't "giving their wife a break"... No, they're fathers- and they're caring for their children. And real fathers see that as just as much their responsibility as it is the woman's and THAT is a beautiful thing. Some men even step up and do this for kids that aren't biologically theirs, but they love, and learn , and give all they have. Way to go Papas. I see you. I appreciate you. .

How perfect is this quote for birth?? 🙌🏻🔥💃🏼 #strongwoman #dontdoubtme #trustyourbody #birthwithoutfear #birthplan #birthworkersofIG

I had the privilege of snuggling a newborn of a birth client today. To help guide a mama through pregnancy and birth and then hold the sweet life in my arms is always a surreal experience. .
.

It reignites my passion for my work deeper and deeper each time. To know that I played a part in not only the birth of a baby but the just-as-profound birth of a mother is such an honor. .

Women deserve dignity and advocacy during birth. Women deserve to begin motherhood feeling empowered and strong. Women deserve doula support. .

W H O L I S T I C  h e a l i n g || Honouring the mind-body-spirit connection is an integral part of living consciously. Approaching healing wholistically requires that we observe the uncomfortable emotions that often accompany dis-ease in the physical body [not simply focusing on symptoms + disease].

I love this post [words + photo credit to: @gypsynspice]. Jenny shares her experience with mastitis; the vulnerability + discomfort (but also the sisterhood, self-care, herbs, mindfulness, [+ makeshift cabbage-leaf bra] that are helping her heal).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
:::Reposted via @gypsynspice::: “I got mastitis this weekend and I forgot where mind goes when I get really sick. How sickness makes me feel so intensely vulnerable.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Helpless.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Uncomfortable.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, as I was dealing with the actual pain and side effects of mastitis: massaging what feels like rocks out of my breast, the fevers, aching, chills, the vomiting and the diarrhea, I also had to sit through that nonstop darkness running through my head.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
‘You’re fine Jenny, get up.’
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
‘Clean something.’
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
‘Make dinner.’
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
‘Check on Lilly.’
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
‘Draw your own bath.’
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My friend @janessamichellesmith who had also gotten mastitis and was able to heal naturally, loaded me up with potent herbs that she sourced and created by hand— tinctures of Elderberries, Reshi, Chaga and probiotics. She even ran me a bath, lit a candle and turned off the lights. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A combination of all of that and nonstop cold cabbage compresses (I even made cellophane cabbage bra (thanks @princess_diana333 for the idea). I’m now doing much better.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And while I am not out of the woods yet, I think there is a testament to natural medicine, nourishing foods and just letting myself be okay with that fucking scary, raw vulnerability, that makes me nervous and uncomfortable.”

Wild woman are an unexplainable spark of life. They ooze freedom and seek awareness, they belong to nobody but themselves yet give a piece of who they are to everyone they meet.
If you have met one, hold on to her, she'll allow you into her chaos but she'll also show you her magic.
-Nikki Rowe

Our little towel icon can mean two things for your birth plan! 1) Do not wipe vernix off baby — check out the last IG post to see those benefits! 2) Please wipe off baby before skin-to-skin — some parents would really rather cuddle their baby without worrying about the vernix, and that is totally your choice! ... either way, you deserve a say in the matter. Hop on over to The Birth Plan Co. on Etsy to choose your perfect birth plan. Link in bio! #vernix #birthdayfrosting #birthoptions #birthpreparation #visualbirthplan #birthworkersofIG

“The World Health Organization recommends waiting at least 24 hours to bathe newborn babies. And many wait even longer. Babies, especially those born around or before estimated due date, are covered in a protective creamy, pasty coating called #vernix, which some birth professionals nickname 'birth frosting’ ... Vernix not only prevents pruning of baby's skin while swimming in amniotic fluid during the long bath of pregnancy, it also keeps baby's skin soft and most importantly protects baby from infection earth side. The modern routine practice of bathing it off also can make baby cold while trying to adjust to the cooler temperature outside of mama, by taking baby away from mama's warm skin, and interrupts the ideal continuous bonding especially helpful for learning to breastfeed in those initial and crucial hours.” .
✨The birth preference “Do not wipe off vernix” is available with The Birth Plan Co.’s custom, visual birth plans—for both vaginal births AND cesarean births! Link in bio.✨

Loved my tattoo session today. It was actually the first one that I went to completely alone. I also totally forgot music or a stone to hold. Just me and the buzzing and the pain. But it was great and I love it, and I wasn't at all afraid. .

Check out this beautifully bloomed Lily from my husband. So many things went into the naming of my company. Not only are Lilies my favorite flower but they are also believed to be the flower of birth and motherhood. I love the way a lily blooms. It takes it’s time before it’s ready to show you it true beauty just like the birth journey.

b o o k 📚o r d e r || The last book I ordered took nearly a month to arrive, so imagine my delight when I found this one in my mailbox on Monday morning after only ordering it on Friday eve. I [passionately] believe that the resurgence of natural birth is critical in the evolution of human consciousness… so I’m looking forward to sinking my teeth into this one.
