Only about 18 years too late for this gem from @anthropologie . Luckily my friends and family are more tolerant than my GI tract and most of them have hung around. And now they’re stuck listening to me banging on about placentas and whatnot around the dinner table, the poor things can’t win 🤣 . #freefromgluten #notfreefromfriends #glutenfree #gfree #friends #longsufferingfriends #birthobsessed #birthgeek #hypnobirthing #hypnobirthingteacher #hypnobirthingclass #childbirth #birth #antenatal #babies #birthmind
Do things seem a little off down there – in your pelvis? You feel like you are sitting funny? Well adding a newborn can throw anyone off but this is an “in my body offness”. (I’m creating new words here; do you like it?)

Had a great time at the Baby Fair this weekend at Kettering Hospital. They had a DJ, food and prizes for prospective and soon to be parents. Loved getting the chance to talk to so many families about how a doula can help and setting aside many myths (its not always expensive and its not just for families looking for natural births, waterbirths, home births or first time moms). #lovewhatyoudoula #doula #babyfair #ketteringhealthnetwork #kettering #naturalbirth #medicatedbirth #waterbirth #homebirth #hospital #doulasareforall #support #laborsupport #pregnancy #pregnant #delivery #labor #birth #allbirths

There is nothing else on earth that brings me quite as much joy as helping welcome new life to the earth. I have been a birth doula for 12 years now. Each birth is special and each birthing room like standing on sacred ground. Today I get to help welcome another little one earth side. It is such a special privilege. ❤ #doulalife #oncalllife #birth #birthaffirmations #blessings #itsbabyday
I am super excited to join the Evidence Based Birth community and to begin working toward becoming an Evidence Based Birth Instructor. Ensuring that families have access to quality, evidence-based care is one of my greatest passions, and I can't wait to start sharing this within my community! Stay tuned.... @ebbirth #doula #supportingfamilies
A few times a month, a mama in the LYL community will post that her doctor said her baby's way too big for its gestational age, and recommends an early induction 🙄⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Many times, mamas who wanted to labour naturally will follow their doctors' orders because doc knows best, BUT when they induce early, their body's not primed & prepped & READY to labour, so progress is slow/stalled and then mom ends up with a c-section. AND too many times, the baby is significantly smaller than they predicted 😒⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ This is one of THE most common obstacles I see women trip over in those final weeks of pregnancy so I wanted to post about it just incase it helps you avoid an unnecessary cesarean with your baby🤞⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ The national average for c-section has increased a whopping 540% within the last generation! (AKA since the creation of the labour funnel) Is anyone else completely BUGGING OUT about that stat?! 😳🤯⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ In Canada and the US, over 30% of women are getting cesareans, and although sometimes it's completely necessary & lifesaving...the vast majority of them are easily preventable if you can learn to advocate for yourself, get your body aligned for labour, and keep the unnecessary medical interventions to a minimum 👊⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ These c/s stats cannot keep going this way, we've got to turn the tide. Yes we, you and me. This is why I do what I do. Empowering each and every one of you to enter the labour room understanding your body, the labour funnel, and how to hopefully avoid it 🙅‍♀️⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I want to show you how to remove any/all obstacles and pave the way for your b.e.s.t possible labour & birth experience. Because remember, your body was designed to give birth and it *still* knows how to do that when given the time, space, and environment it needs to do so 🙌 #labour #birth #obstacles #cesarean #csection #naturallabourprep #labourfunnel 🎨: @spiritysol
@theambitionstudio Two years ago, when we first found out that we were 1 of 8 couples challenged with infertility, I was devastated. . . If I'm being 100% honest, as a high achieving, ambitious woman, it was a blow to my ego and the shame I felt could have turned into a blow to our marriage. . . But I thank God for the transformation becoming a Professional Certified Coach has given me. . . I knew I had a choice between shame and sharing - I chose to share. . . I shared every attempt, every failure and every heartbreak knowing that our support system would keep us strong. . . We are happy to share that we finally got our miracle baby!! Coming to the world in December 2019 (Yay! Capricorns) . . Thank each and every one of you for the continued prayers, support, encouragement and love. I consider this a victory for us all!! . . . 👶🏽😘 🦋Follow our other pages @smootiepieorganics @smootiepiebaby @smootiepiefertility to share your birthing stories and fertility journey......also don’t forget to visit www.lovesmootiepie.com to shop our products #lovesmootiepie #smootiepieorganics #cutiepie #Berrycurly #beautifulbaby #cutie #Berrycurly #Birth #smootiepiebaby #babybump #mommylife #momlife #Pregnant #Mommy #Kids #Babyfever #Babiesofinstagram #Babies #Afrobabies #Love #cuteness #cutenessoverload #Newborn #Outfit #newmom #Cutie #melanin #newbaby
Are you up for the challenge?
This can help soothe stitches and burning in the area after birth. You can even add a dash of epsom salt. #betterbirth #postpartum #birth #growingmoms #doulacare #natural births #postpartumhealing
“Failed Epidural: After being induced at 41 weeks I was in labor for 22 hours and my epidural only worked for 5 of those hours . . . Now that I look at this video I laugh at myself because of how silly I was acting but that pain was unbearable, but after pushing for 3 hours I delivered a healthy baby boy named Jaxon Davis. I thank my mother and husband for being my biggest supporters during the hardest time in my entire life.” Congratulations mama 💕💕 [ @pregnancybeyond ] . . . . .
