"Desejo que você tenha a quem amar. E quando estiver bem cansada, ainda exista amor pra recomeçar... Pra recomeçar!" @Regranned from @birth_unscripted - We were honored to get to document a THIRD birth with this family this weekend as they welcomed their 2nd son in a surprisingly FAST (less than 2 hours from nothing to baby) birth. We are SO happy we all made it time, including them, as she delivered maybe 20 min after arriving at the hospital!
Welcome baby BOY! Amos Cannon Langston 💙Born 9.16.17 at 11:30am. 18 inches long, weighing 7lbs 6oz. Born in the water! Coolest and most priceless experience for me and @mebeknob . Modest labor pictures to follow. Thank you to my doula Jenny Larson, my midwives Janna and Diane, and their assistant Crystal over at @willowbirthcenteraz So much love was given to me during labor ❤️. It was exactly how I wanted it to be. Third time's a charm I guess. 💙😉 Thank you, Amos, for treating my body with kindness. So content that you are with us! 💙 #babyboy#birthcenter#waterbirth#amoscannon

The immune proteins found in the vernix and amniotic fluid are very similar to the ones found in breastmilk. During the end of pregnancy, vernix thins and some of it sheds into the amniotic fluid that baby is now breathing. This antimicrobial, peptide-rich mixture enters the baby’s lungs and digestive tract, and helps prepare the digestive tract for the similar peptides found in breastmilk. This helps prepare the baby’s body for the transition to the outside world by prepping, and nourishing their digestive systems. What a perfect design! . . . . .
For those of you who know me personally, you know how happy I am to provide a family centered approach to birth. That is why I was thrilled to have big sister Isabelle watching over as I performed a newborn exam on little brother Samuel at just one hour old. What an amazing and supportive big sister!
#Repost@blessedqueensdoula ・・・ Womb massage, fertility massage, closing of the hips and belly binding! These are all necessities for any woman postpartum, whether you are 40 days or even 15 years postpartum or more!! Knowing the history and art behind the sacred renewal of your connectivity to your femininity allows you to truly care for and love on your Womb! Thank you @maytethewombdoula and @doulababy1974 for the wisdom, knowledge and understanding!
If birth could only be THIS luxurious! Endured 2hrs of Braxton hicks contractions the other night. Hubby thought better be safe then sorry and got the pool at least set up. They subsided after laying down for a while. I'm loving the seat inside of it this time. And the elephant straw my kiddos hooked me up with (stylish)😂 I'm ready for full on labor and to hold this baby in my arms! #homebirth#homebirthbaby#waterbirth#homebirthmama#bornathome
