MOST RECENT

I had not one, not two, but FOUR uninvited people show up at my birth at a birthing center. And honestly, I had never taken a 💩 in front of my partner Either! My labor was wayyy too long and painful as a result - I wasn’t comfortable enough to surrender to the waves of energy, and instead I was resisting, which is the last thing a mother in labor should do. A doula can help!💕

HUMBLE BRAG- Almost one year ago I attended my birth doula training... since then I’ve completed a postpartum training, a handful of workshops, and held space as 7 babies entered this world... I have two more births by the end of this month that’ll complete my certification process and I just signed up for a Certified Breastfeeding Counselor course ✨💓 feeling honored to be called to this work and trusted in these spaces and grateful for all my family and friends who support me on this journey🙏🏼

At this time last year I was finishing up my final day of training to be a #birthdoula! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again- there is something so special about being in a room with 20+ other women who are passionate about the same things you are, and are ready to support and empower others. I love the relationships I built, the knowledge I gained, and the joy that came with knowing I was ready to support women during #birth!

@broadly @vice has written an article that exposes the OBSTETRICAL VIOLENCE that mothers in labor face. This can range from "disrespectful attitudes, coercion, bullying, and discrimination from care providers, lack of consent for examinations or treatment, forced procedures like C-section by court order, and also physical abuse". I will be posting key points from the article. Pregnant or not, YOU must be informed. This can happen to you or someone you know. We MUST fight this injustice. If you are pregnant or know someone who is, please HIRE A DOULA! Not sure if a Doula is right for you? I urge you to please contact me via DM or my website www.lenesbirthservices.com.

Malaysian Bengkung-This traditional form of postpartum belly binding is done in the initial few days following a vaginal birth and 4-6 weeks after a cesarean birth (consult your physician before beginning the wrap). The wrap is usually tighter, with the knots stacked one on top of another, this one was adjusted somewhat loosely for comfort to begin.

Belly binding can help repair diastasis recti, strengthening the connective tissue during recovery, while supporting the low back and pelvic area. This practice is also a way of honoring the tenderness of the postpartum body, and is practiced as a personal ritual for the postpartum person. This form of belly binding can be adjusted to meet the needs of any body and all shapes/sizes-the fabric can be purchased at your local fabric store and stitched to make one long strip. You can pick your own beautiful fabric and have the wrapping be something sweet to look forward to as you move into your first forty days.

In our world, it's really hard not to allow self-doubt to dictate our relationships with our bodies. It's so hard to believe in ourselves and trust our bodies, especially when things don't go according to plan.
A former client wanted to go full term and ended up having her baby at 32 weeks. She was scared. She was angry. She dug deep and found the power to give birth to that baby, be a NICU mom, and make it through a life flight and several hospital stays. She is powerful.
Another client had prodromal labor for a full week, starting on her due date. She was exhausted, frustrated, and desperate to have her baby. She made the very hard choice to wait, not induce labor, and had an amazing and beautiful birth at 41 weeks. She is powerful.
My water broke at 39 weeks gestation. My body did not start labor on its own. I felt betrayed because everything I had read to prepare for birth had asked me to trust my body. I felt broken. I worried that I would never labor on my own. But it took just a whiff of pitocen to put my body into labor, and I gave birth to a sunny-side-up baby. I was not broken. I was incredible.
There are so many stories, stories of necessary interventions and cesarean births that left mothers feeling less-than. I'm here to say that you are so much more. Your body is not broken. YOU are not broken. You are amazing.

Spontaneous vaginal birth, induced birth, cesarean birth, medicated birth - whatever you and your baby need - you are doing great! Mothers are the strongest women in the world! This absolutely relates to the postpartum period as well!
