MOST RECENT

“People say that what we are all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we are really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost being and reality. So that we can actually feel the rapture of being alive.” Joseph Campbell
The experience of birth is that most holy of experiences; touching the ache to live in her bloodiest, rawest, most chaotic resonance and miracle.

April is Caesarean Awareness Month. After my C-section with my 1st born I felt broken. They called it failure to progress that label got to me. Through that experience however It pushed me to know more about childbirth and I decided to become a Doula to advocate & remind birthing women that their body’s are made to give birth. That they are powerful. Three-teen years later I was able to have a healing and victorious HBAC with my 2nd son. Repost from @thelanguageofbirth using @RepostRegramApp - BIRTH IS NOT A LANGUAGE OF PASS OR FAIL "My body did not fail me." I first photographed this mother in 2015. I visited her the other night and photographed her again, after her third C-section and the birth of her third child. These were taken the night before her staples were removed. Her body didn't fail. Your body didn't fail. I hope these images touch the hearts of those who struggle after giving birth via C-section.
.
From the Mama:
"I hear a lot of talk from other moms about wishing our bodies didn’t fail. How a “traditional” birth would have been better, and wondering how we wound up here. I can tell you I didn’t plan on a C-section. I didn’t want a C-section…but my body didn’t fail. This body that has seen surgeries, tumors, three C-sections and incredible loss didn’t fail me one bit. My baby is alive, I’m alive, and no scar or procedure will take that away from me." Words from @thehonestbodyproject via @doulatrainingsint

In contrast to yesterday’s vaginal birth clip. Sometimes the universe has another plan. This happened to me. My body didn’t fail me either. Or YOU if this is you. BUT I still believe 💯 % that natural birth is the better way. For soooo many reasons. Health, babies, humanity, women. Unless the shit hits the fan of course. Or medically you can’t go in for the natural way. So I’m going in for the vaginal birth again this time. It’s my birth right, to give birth in this way , a rite of passage. I’ll be following all the ‘things’ in my birth education programme that I offer to other women to get there. Empowering myself first and I’ve got myself one to one midwife care - coz this is really really IMPORTANT to increase the chances of what I want! AND I’m focusing on what I want! Not anything else. I’m not shying away from fear I’m walking full on into it, dealing with it and giving it the heave ho. Once I’ve thrown everything at it then universe let’s go❤️👊🏼 #Repost @thelanguageofbirth with @get_repost

BIRTH IS A BREATHING LANGUAGE
Often the narrative regarding medicalized birth speaks to 'it's good it’s there when needed.' However the 'when needed' is where this conversation finds muddy waters. Because everyone's personal interpretation of need is diverse in of itself this dialogue unfortunately becomes a battle between apparently opposing forces.

Because the nature of 'when needed', like necessary & unnecessary is a language of power--who determined a particular need/necessity & made a decision AND then who was subjected to that decision--it therefore becomes a language that actively AND retroactively divides care. It pits people against one another; who was right & who was wrong. Who made the best decision & who made a worse one. What was done with a true need/necessity, & what was done with a need that can be questioned, minimized & discredited.
For such language as necessary & unnecessary & when needed does not allow for breath. Does not give space nor acknowledgment of how we all have the same universal needs and we all approach giving & getting those needs met. Such language does not give love to the reality that we all will analyze & balance the risk-benefit set of a particular birth differently. What one provider & Mama sees/feels as a risk will be different from another. What one person considers necessary will be viewed as unnecessary by someone else. With our general collective goal being survival of both Mama & babe, we then see a wide range of how individual medical professionals will handle risk; a dance with unknown & ambiguous information. Risky choices are those where the outcome isn’t known but the odds of success are. Some of the facts & data are very solid & clean, but how they’ll combine to create a future scenario is tricky to predict. Birth falls into that complex & miraculous middle--between the known & unknown, predictable & unpredictable, odds for & odds against. Time is incredibly precious.
All birth carries risk. Bottom line. So when we speak so vehemently & absolutely that most cesareans are unnecessary, what are we saying? What does unnecessary even mean? And then what is a real need then?

.... Because cesarean births can be gentle ❤️
If you plan to have a cesarean section, talk to your doctor about having a gentle (family centered) one. A baby will lovingly make its entrance into the world only with the help of a mother’s breathing rhythms and medical team being on standby. You can also choose to have dimmed lighting, music, delayed cord clamping, skin to skin... everything you would have with a vaginal birth, if you choose to and if you find a doctor supportive of your choices. We have seen this start to happen in Dubai, looking forward for more to come! 💕

Birth is birth. Ever transformational and always natural. .

I am a cesarean baby. So thankful for my own mother's labor. And how her's continued even after I was born while she waited in recovery for me to be brought to her. .

Repost from @thelanguageofbirth who writes:
The idea cesarean sections are the ‘easy way out’ is due to an ugly term coined in Britain in the early 2000’s known as ‘too posh to push’. Too Posh-To-Push Moms, who made the choice to have an cesarean birth either electively or by emergency circumstances, were targeted & stereotyped as being weak, arrogant women of higher socio-economic class. Mainly white celebrity women. For c-sections were portrayed to be more convenient, less painful and distasteful, and not to mention the supremacist hegemonic ideology of keeping a tight pussy. So these Moms, not only pressured to maintain an unrealistic body image & social status were then also demonized & ridiculed horrendously by the media and the community, for choosing to birth the very way they were pressured to birth in the first place.

And we are still caught up in the dangerous & gross aftermath, of believing cesarean births are lesser-than. That cesarean Moms are lesser-than, weaker and damaged and just gave-up, gave-in. Fight this!

"Oh holy holy belly breech birth! This phenomenal birth facilitated & filmed by @fertilugo a OBGYN from Venezuela writes, (translated from Spanish to English), “One of the most common reasons to perform a c-section is the ‘podalica position’ (sitting or breech) which is when the baby is placed with the foot down. It is a position which, no doubt, poses serious problems for vaginal birth, but, however makes it impossible for the baby. We can see in this video a birth, respectful and careful with obstetric maneuvers, and with a vigilance that ensures the safety of the baby and the mother. With patience, listening to the music that the parents choose for this moment, and with the support of the father and their doula, the mother can be held throughout the whole process. After birth the baby can immediately be with his mother. Delayed cord clamping. Early attachment; in union doctor and patient can achieve a birth that is respectful.” #partorespetado #birthrespect #cesarea #cesarean #cesarearespetada #cesareanrespect #respectfulbreechbirth #respect #respectfulcesarean #parto #birth #cesareanbirthismagical #bellybirth | Found through the magical @doulascienceandsoul ❤ Words by @doulascienceandsoul video and description by @fertilugo
