I had such an amazing weekend at my doula retreat! Getting a professional massage was definitely my favorite part! I loved spending the weekend with positive women.

May I just say that I am a firm believer that as women we have absolutely everything we need to give birth within us. Medical complications aside, there is no magical formula to learn.

BUT... I think it would be foolish of us to shy away from the fact that times have changed.

Firstly, the amount of false media portrayals of birth and scare mongering around birth has been igniting levels of fear and dread for years. With pressure and focus being placed on ‘snapping back’ and getting back to ‘the old you’, women are seeing birth as something they need to endure, rather than being a transformative, enriching and beautiful experience it can be.

Birth hasn’t changed. Physiologically we give birth the same way, BUT to break through these inherited layers of fear is a learning.

To allow yourself to be physically, emotionally and mentally calm is a learning. It’s not learning a new way to birth, it’s learning how to be able to strip back all the negative connotations and allow your body to do what it was made to do.

And then there’s the postnatal period. Gone are the days of your village coming together... a community supporting you, watching you, listening to you, feeding you, holding you and raising you up and essentially learning from you. The fabric of our community is completely different.

So yes, without this awareness this is a stage we as mothers need to learn. We need to learn realistic expectations. We need to learn what breastfeeding looks like, feels like and what it takes to support a nurturing mother 💕

All hail the rebozo! 🌟
.
A rebozo can be used during pregnancy, to support a growing bump and take strain off a pregnant mother’s back.
.
During labour, they can be used for different holds to offer support and keep mother active and mobile.
.
After birth they make wonderful shawls, pram blankets, or a floor coverings for some brightly-coloured play time with baby 🌈👶🏻
.
Just think of all those memories woven into one very special piece of fabric!
.
Have you used a rebozo - and if so could you bear to be parted with it?

The average US couple spends $25,000 on their wedding. 🥂
I am in no way condemning spending money on your wedding. BUT...I am saying that as a society, it is normal and often expected, that you spend a lot of money on that one day. 🤔
My real issue is that, it is NOT nearly as normal or expected to invest in your CHILDBIRTH experience.
Couples are more likely to cringe at the idea of paying for a childbirth class or a midwife or a birth doula or a postpartum doula or a lactation consultant, than they’d be at spending 3x as much on their wedding. 😣
Your wedding should be a fabulous and magical day. But your experience of birth will be THE most transformative event of your life. Empowering or traumatic or somehow both?! IT👏IS👏A👏BIG👏DEAL👏
Baby showers are nice, don’t get me wrong... But what if we were more okay with second hand baby gear, instead of the latest and greatest...and what if our friends and family helped us pay for that doula or that powerful childbirth education class? Or what if they had a “postpartum party” and took turns cleaning our house and bringing us food? 💗
I wish that more people knew the importance and significance of their birth experience. I want everyone to have a positive birth. I want people to know that it is worth the investment. And their enjoyment of postpartum is worth an investment.
Birth workers don’t do what they do for the money. They do it because they love helping women and babies during this transformational time. 🤱
There is a movement in the birth world!!! The word is spreading that there are ways to have a better birth and postpartum experience! So let’s keep spreading the word! 🗣
What ways did you invest in your birth or postpartum experience??? Please share below to encourage others to invest in their experience! 👇 . . .

The Lunge opens the midpelvis. It is a good technique to be used in labor during a contraction, for:⁣⁣
⁣⁣
▪️ Helping an occiput posterior baby rotate or descend⁣⁣

▪️ Overcoming a stall in active labor⁣⁣

What is a lunge?⁣⁣
The lunge is a technique to rock open the midpelvis between the ischial spines. This makes the most narrow part of the pelvis plus the outlet open as the laboring woman leans towards her foot.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This simple technique can be used by a laboring woman if she can stand up and put one foot on a stool or a chair.⁣⁣

“It wasn’t just the visits before we got to the hospital, where Julianne educated us, helped us set realistic expectations and allowed for us to get comfortable with her before the big day. It was not just the solace she offered us when we finally got to the hospital and things very quickly started to get scary, as our birth plan was derailed due to an induction and eventual c-section. It was not just the after care, the text messages and phone calls and the attention to detail that she offered to my wife weeks after the birth. It was as simple as her spirit, her aura, her humor and energy. She would joke with us constantly, and bring not only a level of professionalism to the table but a light heartedness that was absolutely necessary as my wife and I sailed through the uncharted territory of first time childbirth. I can’t imagine my experience as a first time dad without Julianne’s support” ❤️❤️❤️

✨Att fylla på med energi✨

Asså, på riktigt! Hur kan en vara så glad, upprymd och energifylld efter ett församtal? Jag blir det varje gång. Det är så häftigt (i brist på bättre sätta-ord-på-känslan-ord) att det sker och att det sker varje gång. Det är som att äta den mest fantastiska rätten där alla smaker faller på sin rätta plats med det bästa sällskapet. Ja’ bara älskar’t❣️ Tack, ni uppdragsgivare som vill ha mig som doula (det finns de, tro det eller ej, vilka väljer annan😉 och det visar också på hur viktig personkemin är mellan sig själv och doulan). På bilden ser ni Din Doula, energifylld till tänderna, i ett trapphus nära dig😄🙌🏽🤩✨🥰 ✨✨Hur har du fyllt på med energi idag?✨✨ #doulamöte #doulalife #församtal #bfoktober2019 #bfseptember2019 #bfnovember2019 #bfdecember2019 #energi #energiboost

O Chá de Bençãos não é uma cerimônia religiosa , mas é realizado no respeito à crença de todos, afinal:
"Onde estiverem dois ou três reunidos em meu nome, ali estou no meio deles. "
E O Mestre Jesus é sempre muito Bem Vindo em todas as horas e a todo momento 🙏

A grávida precisa se sentir amparada e fortalecida para esse momento tão especial que é dar à luz. E nada melhor do que estar cercada por pessoas que a amam e que desejam o melhor para ela e para o bebê.

BABY PELVISES |
Did you know that diapers give babies way less movement in their tiny pelvises???
.
.
Recently I was talking to a new mom who said she always takes off her baby's diaper at home. I was curious why she did that and asked her. She said her baby becomes a totally different person without a diaper on. I asked her what she meant by that and she said "I'll show you".
.
.
She put the baby on a blanket on the floor and asked me to observe how the baby (4 months old) was moving. She moved her arms and her legs but did not make any turning movements. I would say it was pretty static, the way she moved.
.
.
Then her mom took off the diaper. And she completely changed indeed! She put her feet towards her little face, grabbed her feet with her hands and started rolling towards the left and back to the middle😳A full switch to dynamic movement in seconds!
.
.
.
This reminded me of the babies I saw during my field work in India. They all moved like that bc they were wearing just a piece of cloth. .
.
.
This all made me realize that SO MANY practices and habits in our Western society are pelvis-restricting; unconsciously blocking freedom of natural movement. From such a young age on! In my work I focus a lot on posture starting from the pelvis and how this can influence our cycles but I had never thought about how pelvic awareness can potentially start or be unconsciously stopped at such a young age. This baby seemed so aware of what felt better in her tiny body regarding movement. I was so amazed! Baby pelvises are my new topic of research to dive in to 🤓
.
.
.
If you have a little bub, perhaps you are curious to try to keep their diapers off at home and see what new things they do and learn when that happens (: .
.
I am curious what you think about this! Let me know in the comments below ↓

New little baby teeth are every breastfeeding parent’s fear.⁣

Biting happens. And it hurts. But what should you do about it? And what does it mean? Rest assured that it does not mean the beginning of the end of your breastfeeding journey, and there are great lessons to learn from this pivotal stage in your baby’s development. ⁣

In this week’s blog, learn how to win the battle of the bite. Not only do I give tips about stopping the biting habit, but also you’ll learn how to work through it emotionally, mentally, and physically so that you can embrace this milestone with confidence. It might be the first real test of boundaries that you begin to establish with your baby and breastfeeding. Click the link in my bio to read more!

Well, third time's the charm on this tiny hat. Sheesh.

I got too used to DPNs, and using a circular needle is apparently a learning curve. Haha.

Such sweet yarn from @apple_yarns. Thank you for steering me in the right direction! [:

This is what I look like! My name is Ali (short for Alison) and I am a Birth & Postpartum doula serving families in South Florida - Broward County 🌞🌴
.
Doulas can provide support for vaginal births AND c-sections. Evidence shows that continuous birth support can lead to lower rates of unnecessary medical interventions, less pain and anxiety during labor, and more satisfaction with the birth experience. I believe EVERYONE deserves support before, during, and after birth! ✨

Posted @withrepost@snuggle_me_organic We are our children's first home. Our bodies comfort and nurture these babes. They do not need or desire more.

Let them be fully attached, dependent and connected. Do not worry that they may never sleep or eat or play alone. They will. And all too soon.

Let them gain their independence at their own internal pace. This way, they will always look back on their first home satisfied and content.

Tag a new mama ❤️

1st or 6th baby, every birth is different and every birth is unexpected!! Some people think that having a doula for the 1st birth is all you need but having that emotional & physical support can make a difference in the labor/delivery. HIRE A DOULA!! @birthovations @toni_loveee @piercejaymes • •

Sad. But true.
I stopped drinking a year ago. The only times I do drink is on special occasions. There is a stigma when you don’t drink. People are quick to judge and think alcoholism is the culprit.
.
.

I stopped drinking because:
endometriosis is growing on my liver & alcohol is complete shit for #endometriosis & your body. After I drank and was sobering up it increased my anxiety to a point where it was unbearable. It was a way to cope with ovarian cysts and pain without insurance. My anxiety told me to drink.
.
.
I would feel better. I would feel more confident and like myself without the pain which has overtaken my life for ten years.
@januaryharshe - a beautiful soul that overflows with #realness & #selflove has taught me anxiety is a liar.
Once I stopped falling for the lies my anxiety fed me and stopped using alcohol as a crutch - I have been healthier, my liver levels are great and I have been panic attack free since December.
It’s ok not to drink and you do not owe anyone an explanation
