Always make sure someone on your birth team has good upper body strength. You never know when you'll need a good hip squeeze! 😉 •

When @carrapatterson called to tell me that @michelleobama and @obama.malia came to see Jitney at @mtc_nyc, we basically screamed, nearly cried and screamed some more in reliving the magic of it all. And to be documented in @people really makes it so special. #Jitney #broadway #obamas #hipsqueeze 🙌🏻🙏❤👆🏻😭What an incredible experience. #foreverfirstlady

We see alot of images sharing the highs of #birth, those sweet baby rolls, tender embraces of new babies and tiny toes. But without the crashing waves of #contractions , raw trying moments and the hard work moms and dads (& the birth team) we wouldn't arrive at those sweet moments. The path of a new one entering the world is paved with hard, trying times of labor. This not something to run from, but something to embrace and know it's part of the journey.

What the heck does a hip squeeze do?
A laboring mother’s pelvis is stretched by the pressure of the baby’s head bearing down. The baby can also put uncomfortable pressure on the sacrum. “The hip squeeze pushes the pelvis back into a relaxed position,” which both “relieves the pressure of the stretch” and causes the “pelvis to flare out slightly, allowing the baby room to move around and down.

Why use a hip squeeze during labor?
-Relieve lower back pain.
-Reposition a baby who is posterior.
-Reposition a baby who is slow to descend.
-Reposition a baby whose head is not in an ideal position.

How do you do a hip squeeze?
1) Have the mother lean forward. She can be standing, kneeling on hands and knees, or supporting herself on something like a couch or birth ball.
2) Place your hands along her hips, fingertips on the top of her hipbones.” Keeping your hands parallel to the floor and your palms stationary, “rotate your hands inward to apply pressure. Using your palms, apply pressure up and in. Your palms should be in the fleshy circle of muscle, not on any bone.
3) Experiment and communicate! The mother will let you know what feels good!

Or 4) hire a doula 😉

Right now,
two weeks ago, today.
Breathing through contractions with support from the love of my life and my first VBAC baby.

The Double hip squeeze 🙌
One of the many amazing comfort measures your doula can provide.
A laboring mother’s pelvis is stretched by the pressure of the baby’s head bearing down. The baby can also put uncomfortable pressure on the sacrum. The hip squeeze pushes the pelvis back into a relaxed position which both relieves the pressure of the stretch and causes the pelvis to flare out slightly, allowing the baby room to move around and decend 💕

🌠Hip Squeeze🌠 *Comfort Measures*
The double hip squeeze pushes the pelvis back into a relaxed position. Which both relieves the pressure and opens up slightly, allowing the baby room to move around and down.

Yesterday was National Dog Day! I can't go without recognizing all the sweet pups who love on their Moms during labor! 🐶 On a side note, those are some pretty amazing hip squeezes going on!!

Mi Amor Birth+Lifestyle Photography will soon be adding Labor Doula services. Make sure and follow me to keep up on the latest details. #labordoula #birthdoula #donadoulaintraining #mothertreedoulatraining #donaintl #hipsqueeze

You may have heard of the hip squeeze, one of the staples of physical comfort doulas provide. And you may easily imagine how (& why) you might want it done by two people at some point (e.g., your doula + your birth partner together).💡But did you know you can give yourself a very similar pressure? This might be helpful if you want it while you are walking or if you just don't want to be touched during labor.
I love providing my clients with options so we can discover together how I can best support their changing needs throughout their labor. 💜

✨ Double Hip Squeeze ✨ This little maneuver is a classic tool to use during labor. By changing the shape of the pelvis, the double hip squeeze can relieve lower back pain and encourage baby to rotate into a good position for birth. Did you use this technique in labor? 📷: @queen___justine .

Witnessing the connection, strength and raw love between these two was the highlight of supporting their homebirth! Dad was right beside Mom, powering through hip squeezes, holding her up through sensations and reminding her to slow her breathing and ride the waves 🌊

Dad/partners are the most important support in his partner's birth!

wishing my love a Happy Father's Day. this is forever a favorite moment of mine of him as a dad. clearly it was an intense moment for me! logan's birth was so swift we didn't have the chance to work together like i dreamt. as for irene's birth, labor was not as spontaneous, so we were able to experience putting in conscious effort to embrace each other, before arriving at this moment. (it made the contractions stronger and longer, opening me up faster...) we worked so hard together toward the end to bring the baby earthside. it was crazy and intense work. but it was a dream come true! 💛 ・

Practicing the good ol' hip squeeze to cope with surges. Resting over a birth ball reduced the strain on the upper body. It's a beautiful way to engage a birth partner in then labor process.

Hip squeezes are an amazing way to support women through labor! Most women report significant relief through contractions when firm pressure is applied to the hips in an inward motion. This is a technique your doula and partner or other support system can provide both at home and at your birth location.

After an all night birth... even doulas can use a hip squeeze.

Oh the magic of the hip squeeze! Counter pressure can be a laboring mama's best friend as she rides the waves of each contraction. #doula

Inspired by my doula friend @michelinewalkey_birthdoula - I wanted to share a recent video of me lifting. For most of 2016, I found myself getting tired at births much earlier then I used to and I knew I needed to change something so I could handle the long hours that birth work requires. Back in November I started working out at @naccfitness where I do a combination of weight lifting and cardio. When I started I couldn't do one regular squat, a few months later I can back squat 145lbs (in this video) and more. So often my journey in fitness reminds me of birth. Surround yourself with good people who believe in you, have a guide to give you one on one support and help you every step of the way, your mind will be either your biggest friend or your biggest enemy, and know that you can do things you once thought impossible. Now, my stamina for births is so high and I can hip squeeze for days 😜 -Samantha

This couple right here are so special to me. They were my 5th birth and then invited me back to become my 50th birth attended. My role in births looks different for every family. For some I am hip squeezing for hours on end and doing everything my rebozo can do, for others I am only using my words to provide her that reassurance and help keep her focused, and for other births I sit and be present for them, being witness and being present. -samantha #doula #worlddoulaweek #worlddoulaweek2017 #repeatclient #holdingspace #hipsqueeze #rebozo #pittmeadows #mapleridge #portcoquitlam #coquitlam #portmoody
