THE BIRTH (other parts #livingnotesbirthstory)
MONDAY, NOON:
"...Ok, just double checking that we are on track with the following for the week...", - J's email breaks every project down to a day and time, and a smile stretches over my lips before my eyes finish running through the text.
Gosh, I am lucky to have J to work with! If there is one thing that can be at peace with, it is that on the other side of the country there is, in some ways, a second "me" that ensures LN is always on track.
My fingers type a reply and a quick thought , followed by a humorous smirk, runs through my mind: "wouldn't it be THE MOST perfect week to have a baby? Everything is set and ready for work, baby and even the weather is nice for once". The realistic conscious though moves in to make a statement : "the original due date is next Monday. The adjusted is this Thursday. There are NO baby thoughts allowed until then".
My fingers push a "send" button on the email and close the computer: "Anyone is up to some park, and maybe even beach and ice-cream? The sun is out again!" An excited jibber and shuffling of the feet tell me that my idea is absolutely supported...
... A strong strong kick from the inside lets me know that the little nudger also got woken up by an equally strong, hugging wave of pressure.
"Another one of those liars. It's only Tuesday morning",- my rational conscious firmly holds it's grounds. The bedside nearby is empty and muffled sounds of Justin's voice, that appear louder then typical in an early-morning and sleepy apartment, let me know that he is on the work call with a different time zone.
My eyes quickly glance at the phone. There are still a few minutes I could rest for. After all, in a week or so my days and nights will fuse together again for a year or two. The eye lids shut by themselves before there is another moment to get distracted, but a few second later a new, and now stronger, pressure wave pulls me out of my unsuccessful attempts to rest.
Ok, then. It's probably better anyway. Too many things to do before the baby as is. My feet hit the cool morning floor and head towards the restroom...
... "How in the world did I 👇🏻

"Darllan me perguntou hoje: e aí amor, tá gostando de ser mãe? Eu fiquei sem palavras na hora! Daí disse: acho que a pergunta não é essa, e sim: é fácil ser mãe? Porque é um sentimento tão GRANDE, que não se trata de gostar (pensei comigo: oxe! não existe não gostar, como ele me pergunta isso!) TRANSCENDE o gostar. Olho pra o Lucas e Lucas olha pra mim e me emociono". E enfim ele chegou para mudar a vida dessa família, no aconchego do seu lar, amparado por esse sentimento que envolve, encanta e emociona. Ao Pais Juliana e Darllan, nosso obrigada por nos permitir acender mais uma luz no mundo da humanização.

If baby is born in the amniotic sac, all the attendant needs to do is remove it after birth - while baby is breathing through the umbilical cord that is still attached @tailoredmommy. "Did you know 1/80,000 babies are born in caul?! Penelope was one of these special births and it was such an awesome thing to experience." #Midwifery

I've been debating posting these for a long time, I loved Emma's birth and I'm so thankful that @jessicaleexox was able to capture these moments for me.
I couldn't have made it through without my amazing husband and my beyond amazing midwife 💕

Water birth is definitely my preferred way of birthing my little humans.I have always loved swimming and water and baths are still a non-negotiable for me in any living arrangment, although I must admit years having had to settle for a shower or even zinc or plastic bucket( kumusha in rural Zimbabwe). The truth is that there is nothing special in the water but the buoyancy it gives you to writhe around your birth pool when you have no clue where to put your pain has definitely served me well..Water has always been dignifying for me..both times hubbie ( rather reluctantly on both occasion s😉 jumped into the water with me and was my support.I have used both a metal pool and a inflateable one and really can't tell you which I preferred...I definitely think having a sizeable pool with warm to hot water is a must! For the birth of my son I was going to give birth in a victorian bath and I must say as avand garde as it all sounded then I think it would have been a total disaster and very restricting. Birthing is a very primal experience and requires all the leg room you need...Not every facility or hopistal offers this option of water birth, so if you do have the opportunity why not try it? Would love to hear your experiences.I must say I have HUGE respect to all the mamas who gave birth on beds with nothing to aid them along..while I have never used any gas or air or meds during labour, water I still believe cushioned some of the pain??Cheering you on WHICH EVER way you labour and bring your babies into the world..Birth is birth..Let's not get judgemental and sweat the small stuff...focus on the life

She's here 💗 Den 25 Juli kl 20:40 föddes vår älskade Maja Elise Valentinsdotter på BB i Ystad 🙏🏻 Jag fick möjlighet att föda henne i vatten och det var en fantastiskt häftig upplevelse. Dem bedriver just nu en studie om vattenförlossningar och är enda stället i Sverige som erbjuder kvinnor denna möjlighet. 🌸✨🙏🏻 #birth #newborn #ystadbb #vattenförlossning #waterbirth #babygirl #tacksamhet #familj #littlesister

When I was growing up I always said to my Mum I wanted four boys one day. I was a tomboy and i've never really had any desire to have a daughter in particular. As life will have it now I have three. And as much as I'll probably keep dressing them like boys for as long as they let me, I wouldn't change what is meant to be for anything. Give me all the pink and fluffy things. 💕🌸🌈🍬🦄 #arloandottilie

Talking to your child about the birth of your next baby is SO important. Our dolls are fantastic educational tools to help you start the conversation, and they are also gorgeous!

Notice baby's head turning as it navigates its shoulders through mums pelvis. There is no rush, the baby is still receiving oxygen and nutrients through the intact umbilical cord. #repost @bodywise_birthwise @tribemidwifery
