🚨 Sound the alarm on this one, mamas! For the very first #TDMCtipsandtricks post, I knew exactly what I wanted share. You’re gonna want to write this one down... Those first couple days with your precious newborn are nothing short of magical. Unfortunately the short-lived meconium that infiltrates that same sweet newborn’s diaper is a monster that takes all the prisoners. It’s sticky. It multiplies. It’s everywhere and takes half a package of wipes to clean off you (yes, you) and your newborn. Not anymore! 🙌🏼 Place a light coat of organic coconut oil [can use organic olive oil too] on your newborn baby’s bottom and watch as the next meconium episode slides right off. Voila! Think of it as spraying your cookie sheet so they don’t stick to the pan 🍪😉 No more scrubbing your baby’s sensitive skin for 20min to get it all off. Meconium diapers, you don’t scare us anymore!! *

Every birth IS beautiful, every mother is beautiful and THIS mother, in this moment - really is.
.
.
I speak with so many mothers who say, "Nup. Not me. I looked like I'd been dragged through a bush backwards. I'd had no sleep for 3 nights. I had no make up on. I was in my daggy PJs. I was "ugly crying". My hair looked like a haystack. My birth wasn't "beautiful", it was Armageddon, and I didn't look "beautiful", I looked like the feckin Antichrist."
.
.
Birth is raw, often hard, messy, intense, real. I don't know about you, but I don't much think about how I look during the hardest work of my life, I'm just focussed on getting it done.

But you know what? You just brought a whole new human into the world. There was blood, sweat, tears, snot, vomit, poo, wee, mucous, meconium, mess, yelling, and possibly a smattering of profanity! Amidst all this, emerges a tiny, perfect, soft, sweet new person.
.
.
And YOU, the mother who CARRIED this person, who birthed this person, as you cast your eye at the floaters in the pool, as you lie legs splayed on the obstetric bed with a BP cuff adorning your arm, as you lie behind the screen in a theatre cap thinking, this isn't how I wanted it to be - when can I hold my baby?
.
.
YOU. Are the most beautiful thing in the whole world. .
.
YOU are a MOTHER. .
.
I see you. I see your beauty. 😍💕💖💕💗💕 .

Throwback from a Birth Centre Birth. It’s about time we have Birth Centres all across Canada. Vancouver is definitely working on one. Birth Centres are safe and wonderful option for normal and healthy pregnancies. As a birthing person would be interested in having an option to birth at a birth Centre?

El meconio es la primera evacuación intestinal de su bebé. Su bebé definitivamente pasará el meconio después de que nazca, lo cual es completamente normal y puede ser bastante espeso y pegajoso. Pero a veces su bebé puede pasar meconio mientras está en el útero, causando una gran preocupación con su proveedor de cuidados que a su vez lo hace preocuparse también. Puede llevar a muchas intervenciones que quizás no desee. • ¿Qué hay en el meconio? ¿Qué tan común es pasar el meconio en el útero? ¿Es absolutamente peligroso?
📌Meconium se compone de materiales ingeridos durante el tiempo que el bebé pasa en el útero, como las células epiteliales intestinales, lanugo, moco, líquido amniótico, bilis y agua.
📌 Alrededor del 10-20% de los bebés pasarán meconio mientras están en el útero.
📌Si se descubre el meconio después de que se rompe la fuente de agua, es muy probable que su proveedor de atención comience la cascada de intervenciones.
📌 Las intervenciones incluirán monitoreo fetal continuo, restringir su movimiento, no consumir alimentos / agua, restringir la cantidad de tiempo para el parto e inducir contracciones con pitocina para acelerar el trabajo de parto. Lo cual aumenta indefinidamente tus posibilidades de terminar con una cesárea y un bebé no saludable. A medida que sale la cabeza del bebé, se le succionará y luego se le administrará, el cordón se cortará prematuramente y luego se lo entregará a un pediatra para que realice una nueva aspiración y evaluación.
📌Su proveedor de atención puede ver meconio como señal segura de sufrimiento fetal y su mayor preocupación es que el feto aspire el meconio y termine con MAS (síndrome de aspiración de meconio) que puede causar problemas respiratorios e infecciones. La probabilidad de que esto le suceda a un bebé que ha pasado el meconio en el útero es de 2-5%. ESE 2-5% DEL 10-20%, ESTO ES UNA OCURRENCIA RARA. LA OPORTUNIDAD DE SU BEBE MURIENDO DE MAS ES EXTREMADAMENTE RARO Y MENOS DE 1%.

🚫STOP! MECONIUM IS USUALLY HARMLESS🚫
.
Meconium is your baby’s first bowel movement💩 What is in meconium🤔 How common is passing meconium in utero🤔 Is it absolutely dangerous🤔
.
📌Meconium is made of materials ingested during the time the infant spends in the uterus, like intestinal epithelial cells, lanugo, mucus, amniotic fluid, bile, & water.
📌About 10-20% of babies will pass meconium while in utero.
📌If meconium is present, the cascade of intervention may begin to speed up delivery, which increases your chances of having a cesarean. As the baby’s head emerges, he will be suctioned, delivered, cord will be cut prematurely then handed over to a pediatrician to do further suctioning & assessment.
📌Your care provider can see meconium as a for sure sign of fetal distress & his biggest worry is that the fetus will aspirate the meconium & end up with MAS(meconium aspiration syndrome)which can cause breathing problems & infections. The chance of this happening to a baby that has passed meconium in utero is 2-5%. THATS 2-5% OF THE 10-20%. THE CHANCE OF YOUR BABY DYING FROM MAS IS EXTREMELY RARE & LESS THAN 1%.
📌Interventions taken to prevent MAS are more harmful to the fetus than the meconium itself & there is no evidence proving that babies who pass meconium in utero are actually in distress.
✅HOW CAN WE BETTER HANDLE THE POSSIBILITY OF MAS✅
➖Meconium without any other risk factors is not a need to act as if baby is in immediate danger. ➖Keeping the waters intact will keep meconium diluted in the amniotic fluid.
➖Stay up and moving around during labor. ➖Inducing labor & directed pushing increases the chance of MAS instead of helping it.
➖If we are so worried about fetus inhaling meconium, why are we suctioning the baby right away? Suctioning causes the fetus to take deep breaths, further inhaling the meconium.
➖Cutting the cord right away also forces the fetus to take deep breaths, inhaling the meconium even further.
➖Allowing the fetus time to birth itself allows good chest compression to expel fluid & meconium from lungs
