❔Who's in the room?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some things I advise laboring couples to think💡 about during birth planning📚 include:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❔Who will be in your laboring environment?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❔Will they add to your experience or take away from it?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❔Will they be helpful participants or agitating spectators?👀 YOUR labor is not 🚫 the time to place other's feelings and wishes over your own.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is an exciting🎉 time and it is understandable that many friends and family will want to witness their loved one's birth.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However✋🏾:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Labor is a delecate process that can start🚦, stop🛑, or stall🚧 in the presence of agitation, stress, or discomfort. .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📍When planning your birth environment, plan wisely.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📈Your doula can give you tips on assessing the value of labor attendees as well as tips for kindly refusing certain presences during your labor process. 💕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

ATTENTION ALL MOMMIES TO BE!!! I will be offering free Doula services here in Maryland!!

What’s a Doula?
The word doula is a Greek word meaning women’s servant. Women have been serving others in childbirth for many centuries and have proven that support from another woman has a positive impact on the labor process.
.
How can Doulas Help?
Studies have shown that having a doula as a member of the birth team decreases the overall cesarean rate by 50%, the length of labor by 25%, the use of oxytocin by 40%, and requests for an epidural by 60%
.
Why Free Services?
The CDC reported a baseline rate of 18.8 maternal deaths per 100,000 births in 2016, the vas majority being women of color. Our black and latin moms need to be protected, educated and supported in every community. I’m here to decrease these numbers one family at a time with little to no cost.

It’s your pregnancy, your birth, your baby and your body let me help you find the mother in you!

Isn't the body amazing!!?? 😃 I'll never look at fruit the same after this!! 😆 Did you know that every woman dilates differently? Women don't dilate evenly at '1cm every hour' but rather every woman dilates at a different rate and not necessarily evenly all the way round. (Sometimes the cervix can be thinner on one area and have a 'lip' remaining in another.) Subsequent births can be difderent too.
Under the right conditions some women can progress from something like 4cm to fully dilated within very short periods of time!! Similarly stress can cause the cervix to stop dilating or even become thicker and begin closing. Because of these natural variations between women, dilation is only one indication of how a woman's labour is progressing and care providers take a variety of information into regard in their recommendations to the birthing mother.
The best things that you can do to aid dilation is create a safe and comfortable environment, move around and use techniques to turn off the analytical brain that feeds emotions of fear and anxiety. 'Relax, let go with each breath and open up.'
I love the work that @duvet_days does - for me these images always inspire wonder in the human body. 😍

Gift bags ready for my Pushing Power workshop tomorrow at @loveisjuniper!

Down the Canal- the Game of Birth is for many different audiences. Perhaps you are pregnant, thinking about it, or you want to learn about options, and differences between the medical model and the midwifery model of care. Maybe you want to know about various comfort measures for labor, or in which month of pregnancy a baby's fingernails appear?

This book 😍

It literally fell off my shelf this morning, so I’ll take that as a sign. *

I’ve been reading more about the Hero’s Journey and mythic structure both for my writing projects and my presentation skills, and when I cracked this book open and looked at the contents, the chapters are structured according to the Hero’s Journey. 🤯

Ah the Universe and its cheeky, mind-blowing, beautiful way of bringing things into our lives in divine timing. ✨

Getting schooled by the ladies already 😂.

Being a midwife isn't just about being there when someone births their child. It's about building a relationship with women. A relationship where women feel comfortable to talk to you about their expectations, concerns and fears. I felt so vulnerable being pregnant, even as a midwife. I just wanted someone who could understand I was carrying the world inside me. Not to feel silly asking questions and someone I could call on anytime.
I looked after Kelly @tedinthecountry throughout both her pregnancies. It's messages like this that makes everything worthwhile. Thankyou 💕

Giving Birth Upright… Culterally a little weird, only because all the movies and most of the people we know have given birth laying on their backs.
Actually giving birth laying on your back is the most ineffective position for mom and baby, though it is the best position for the doctor delivering the baby.
As you are preparing for your labor, remember that upright birth is always an option.

Have you given birth in an upright position? .
