This is today's finished capsules. You'll notice variation within the colour, consistency and texture of the capsule contents. Some parts are pale and stringy, although the bulk is usually reddish brown.

You can see various textures too; dehydrated, ground placenta may look powdery, sandy, coarse and/or flaky - these variations are all normalπŸ‘ŒπŸ»

'Active birth' involves labouring and indeed birthing in positions that are beneficial for both mother and baby πŸ’• Being upright uses gravity to help the baby stay in an optimal position to encourage dilation and the baby's descent. It also allows the pelvic joints to move freely and open to their capacity to allow baby through. It also allows a woman to use her legs and hips to move, rock, sway, roll her baby down and out. Having her upper body weight supported like this, creates a sense of relaxation and focus into her lower body πŸ’«πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’« .

This rainbow baby came just 9 minutes after her Mama and Papa arrived at the birth center. It was truly amazing to watch. Luckily the midwives and I beat Mama to the center and the midwives were able to fill the pool before she arrived. She climbed right in and began working her baby Earthside, all on her own. In a few very short minutes, baby's head was born...and then with another push baby went for her first swim. This photo shows the moment Mama reached out and pulled her baby to the surface...finally welcoming her rainbow baby Earthside.

Swooning over this deliciously pink baby enjoying skin to skin with mumma shortly after birth πŸ˜πŸ’™πŸ’–
SKIN TO SKIN || "There is good evidence that normal, term newborns who are placed skin to skin with their mothers immediately after birth make the transition from fetal to newborn life with greater respiratory, temperature, and glucose stability and significantly less crying indicating decreased stress. Mothers who hold their newborns skin to skin after birth have increased maternal behaviors, show more confidence in caring for their babies and breastfeed for longer durations..."

A brief break in the stormy skies to light up today's cord keepsake 😍 The dark areas on the left show blood trapped in the cord vessels as a result of clamping of the cord. On the right, you can easily make out the 3 vessels (2 arteries and 1 vein) on the empty cord side πŸ’« πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’™πŸ’«

My Placenta Transport Kits are taking over my office! Yay!! πŸ™ŒπŸ»
.

Every confirmed placenta encapsulation booking receives one of these flat packed in the mail. They come with labelled placenta bags and full instructions πŸ’«
.
Warning ⚠️ I'm about to toot my own horn here. But I don't often do so and my clients are so lovely and complimentary and they give me the confidence to do so, so here goes 🎺🎺🎺......
.
I am the only placenta encapsulation (PE) specialist in Perth, Western Australia that has purpose built Placenta Transport Kits 🎺🎺
.
I am also one of very few PE specialist in AUSTRALIA with such Kits πŸ˜²πŸ˜ƒβ˜ΊοΈπŸŽΊπŸŽΊπŸŽΊ
.
Am I proud of this? Oh YES πŸ’«
.
Am I continually working, striving, adapting, ensuring the best possible practices in PE for my clients? YESπŸ’«
.
Am I committed to the safest methods around PE, for my clients, myself, the community? Oh YES πŸ’«
.
Am I concerned about untrained, uncertified, uninsured, rogue practices? Hell YES 😳
.
Have I heard, seen, read completely unacceptable practices, claims and assumptions from so called 'PE specialists'? Sadly, YES πŸ˜’
.
Am I aware that placentas must be packaged and transported according to the Australian Government Department of Health Requirements for the Packaging and Transport of Pathology Specimens and Associated Materials? YES πŸ’«
.
Does this Placenta Transport Kit meet all these requirements? YESSSS! πŸ’«πŸŽΊπŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸŽΊπŸ’«

I think I was one of the lucky ones that didn't need to "fight" for a Vbac. I was almost pushed to have one by my GP, although when I was convinced it was the best decision, I took full ownership of it, preparing myself with knowledge, my birth plan and saying no to a couple of things I knew could affect my chances of achieving it.

But it breaks my heart that so many women around the world are in a completely opposite circumstance. They have to fight for every single thing to have a Vbac. From finding a care provider that doesn't believe "once a cesarean, always a cesarean", to saying no to unneeded inductions, and the worst part, to navigate the horrible false comments that just want to inspire fear and coerce the mum into a particular decision.

If you are fighting for you Vbac, or if you had to, my thoughts are with you today. With your determination to get what is best for you and your baby, with your brave heart willing to use your rights, with the thought that one of the most rewarding experiences of your life is worth the fight.

Tell me about you... did you have to fight for your VBAC?

Gosh it's good to see blue skies after a dreary few Perth winter days! 🌧☁️πŸŒ₯β›…οΈπŸŒ€ Just in time to provide the perfect backdrop and lighting for today's cute little cord keepsake πŸ’.

Doula's orders!! Stealing myself 30 minutes of quiet me time. Away from the house, the builder's noise and a tired Miss 4!

To celebrate World Breastfeeding Week and as it is my intention to educate and empower new Mums and pregnant women I am going to do a series of posts with some awesome facts about Breastfeeding.

Milk glands grow in the second trimester of pregnancy due to an increase of estrogen, lactogen and other hormones.
Cup size has nothing to do with your milk storage capacity. Hormones are what trigger your mammary glands to produce milk.
Producing breast milk consumes 25% of the body’s energy...the brain uses 20%!!! Almost 75% of all mamas produce more milk in their right breast, whether they are right- or left- handed. πŸ“· The Young Heir” by Adrien Emmanuel Marie #thebrightermama #worldbreastfeedingweek #worldbreastfeedingweek2017 #breastfeeding #perthdoula #perthmama #educate #empower

This mama wanted her cord keepsake shaped and dried into the shape of her baby's initial πŸ’™ This and her magical 143 placenta capsules all being returned to her todayπŸ’«πŸ’™πŸ’«
