VBAC⁣


we often take it for granted that people know the meaning of this one.⁣ ⁣

for those that don’t know and why would you, VBAC pronounced “Veeback” is a Vaginal Birth After a Caesarean.⁣

💖Remaking!!❤ In a few days, I will be 30, this might not mean much for many of us, but for me it mean
✔️I’ve finished my Saturn retrograde
✔I’m entering the decade I always pictured as my most empowering one
✔I’m super influenced by Saturn and actually love getting older

Many, many things happened during my last year, I’ve quit my job, starting teaching yoga part time, faced massive financial, self-confidence challenges, identity crisis, decrease in health and vitality, learned about entities attachments, discover the importance of connecting with our wombs, lead women circles, started a new full time job, depleted my nervous system, disconnected to myself and became materialist (for all the ones that know me, this is in itself a sign that I’m not myself 😅), over-exercised and, finally started enjoying yoga and physical activity in a new way, slowly reconnecting to a new Self 🙏

Thus, I’m rethinking the services I offer, making sure I stay authentic and motivated. I’m still in the middle of the storm 🌋 but I can see that some elements are coming back over and over again to me and clarity is slowly taking over the darkness.
The points I feel a need to focus on are:
🔸Astrology to know one self and particularly evolutionary astrology 🔸Removing blocks in the body so energy can flow freely
🔸Re-programming the subconscious to change your story, DNA
🔸Connection to nature, plant medicine and essential oils
🔸Importance of being part of a supportive and loving community

And, of course, still a strong calling to help women in all stages of their life and most specifically during pre-during-post pregnancy.🤰😊 I will be offering services based on these major points because they are all of equal importance to me, as I continue to learn and free myself from my own old programmings/traumas.❤️ For now, I continue to offer Angelic Reiki, kinesiology (as a way to communicate with your subconscious) and yoga for removing blockages and connecting to oneself.🙏❤️

Pregnancy is a magical time BUT it doesn’t always feel that way...the body goes through so many different changes and, as we know, this will present differently for each woman. Our goal is to make sure every woman knows her resources and that just because her sister/cousin/friend suffered with pain through pregnancy doesn’t mean she has to. We are here to help mamas feel empowered throughout their pregnancy to feel like they are doing the best thing for their body and for their baby.
Some things we ❤️ to help with during 🤰🏽:
❇️Pelvic girdle pain (Is it actually possible for me to literally break in half?)
❇️Low back pain (oh hey pain with getting through my work day)
❇️Sciatica (👋 I can’t focus on anything because my leg decided to freak out)
❇️Carpal Tunnel (well this is a fun added bonus)
❇️Incontinence (didn’t think I was “supposed” to be peeing my pants until after the baby)
❇️General Fitness (what the heck am I supposed to do?) The list goes on and if you think you are dealing with any of these issues or have questions about something you are experiencing please reach out to us!

Such a great day today spent with my lovely running chums and we all ran and finished happy- One friend pointed out although we may not always look forward to a run, “you never regret a run” and this is pretty spot on (assuming no natural disaster or similar, whilst out!) Also v happy with my time- Just snuck in under the two hours (the wind picked up and luckily blew me the right way 🤣) Given my lack of energy all week, I feel my time was largely due three factors (other than the wind) @mummys.star I ran this with you in my heart and you were a ray of sunshine to hug at mile 8 😍. My arms worked like crazy after mile 8, when my legs started to go on strike, and @eddieizzard - your inspiring words of wisdom at the #newtheatreoxford on Friday night.... yes my distance was barely comparable, but finishing is a lot of mind over matter.... 🏃‍♀️💪🏅
#thankyouforpearlsofwisdom 😍 #royalparkshalf for all the sustainable swag too (next photo) A lovely wooden medal, a bag made from a recycled plastic bottle, a bamboo tee and to top it all off seaweed water pouches! LOVE IT ROYAL PARKS HALF! What will you come up with next year 🤔

📖New post on my blog📖
“As a birth doula I support parents anticipating childbirth. Some folks have just got it together and some are absolutely terrified. It’s not uncommon for people to disconnect from what’s going on when they’re filled with anxiety. In these situations, the birth experience might be viewed as something that is going to “happen” to them. It can be difficult to vocalize these thoughts. Writing can help.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you or have you journaled through pregnancy? I’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

SUNDAY SELF CARE 💤✨
Sundays are all about resting and recharging yourself - especially if you’re pregnant. One thing you really learn during pregnancy is how much you have to listen to your body - your energy levels are totally different as you build and grow a little human inside of you.
.
The more you rest and slow down, the happier both you and the baby will be. I’m lucky because I’m freelance so I can plan my time during the week (to include naps) but if you’re pregnant and still at work it’s much harder to find that time, so the weekends are invaluable for nurturing your wellbeing - hello Sunday Self Care time!
.
Staying connected to your body and breathe is vital throughout your pregnancy so why not try a lovely soothing body scan to help calm your mind and soothe your nervous system. Sit upright in a chair with feet flat on the floor and begin with a few deep breaths (in through nose, out through mouth). Then imagine a ball of calming coloured light is glowing bright above your head. Visualise that colour slowly entering your body and imagine the light calming, soothing and protecting every single cell inside if your body. Do this as slowly as you can, really tuning in to how every part of your body feels.
.
Then when you reach your beautiful bump, breathe deep into your belly and imagine the ball of light glowing even brighter, completely surrounding and protecting your baby. Keep your awareness on the rise and fall of your breathe in your belly. This will engage you parasympathetic nervous system (rest and relaxation) amazing for pregnancy and during labour. Then gently imagine the coloured light, flowing down your legs, to your feet and then go back up again.
.
The brain loves it when we focus on the present moment and your body is an incredible tool for doing so, which is why a simple body scan is so wonderful for mind, body and bump 🤰🏼
.

making time for ourselves and slowing down is actually important for everyone and we often don’t practice what we preach.⁣ ⁣

I have a client who asked me about an epidural and if a catheter would be required.
I have been looking more in to catheters.
I saw that a sensor is placed on the baby's head when they are used a lot of times. (If there's a medical need I understand those circumstances)

Wow! I didn't know that!

The nausea of trimester 1 can be exhausting all on it's own. In addition to putting your feet up, resting and eating regularly throughout the day (protein and complex carbohydrates are your friend!), ginger tea can be wonderful. I found with my first pregnancy having some sliced fresh ginger in my water bottle and teacup made all the difference to how I felt right across the day. If this isn't enough for your please contact me for an appointment and more personalised advice to help you feel better during this time. Link in bio⁠

Good morning and happy Sunday!🌞🌞 Who here is excited for summer?? I AM! I am 100% summer over winter person. Everyone keeps telling me that I’ll change my mind whilst I'm pregnant but I don't believe it. I have noticed I struggle to cool down when I get a little too warm, but better than freezing and not being able to warm up!!!! I've put together a circuit of 7 different exercises to tone and strengthen your upper body just in time for summer!

All of these exercises are safe for where ever you are in your pregnancy journey, pre and post! Pick up heavier dumbbells, or swap for lighter or none! Change it to suit your abilities 🤗

Please hit me up in the comments if you have any fitness relation questions.

Lauren 😊

Dr. Allison Feldt, PT, DPT is passionate about helping you prepare your body for pregnancy and birth! Many issues people face in later life can be traced back to not being prepared for delivery and ending up with birth injuries. ⠀

Not healing correctly postpartum whether you have a vaginal or c-section birth can affect your health in later life. We are a new generation of parents and can support and empower each other to create a healthier maternal outcome by spreading the word about pelvic floor rehab and teaching people how to give birth. ⠀

You wouldn't run marathon without proper training!!! ⠀

This is the most testing physical experience on earth. With the excitement of the baby coming and the fear of the unknown it's easy to let your part in the birth process "come naturally" or depend on your medical team while you're planning the shower and googling how many minutes is too long in between kicks. But there are so many things that you can do, change and incorporate in your daily life that WILL IMPROVE the outcome of your birth. ⠀

Whether it's physically or mentally you cannot be too prepared to bring a life earth side... So join us for a fun, free, educational workshop. LINK IN BIO TO RSVP! ⠀

For Cherish Doulaship, this looks like NO LONGER TAKING BIRTH CLIENTS until further notice. 😭 If you know me at all, you understand how extremely hard this is for me. I don't say "no" often. 💥However, I am still doing consultations, prenatal visits and postpartum visits. Doulas do so much more than attend births!

This is not a flattering photo. This is also not how I ever pictured pregnancy looking. What this is though is REAL life. This is facing the fact that my body cannot keep my baby or myself alive without intensive intervention. .
.
Baby E, I am fighting with every ounce of strength I have left to keep you safe. I am spent, exhausted, and broken. Thankfully, you have a Heavenly Father who loves you more than I do. He is using the least of these (me) to show His glory. You’re already a light, baby girl💗 Let’s finish this race. .

Pregnancy sucks.
.
Okay, not all the time....okay, okay, it’s actually pretty cool, but it is damn hard work. There’s no possible way to know how your body is going to react to the surge in hormones (I feel crazy emotional most days 😜😂🤗😩), how much your body will stretch, how sick you’ll be or how much cellulite you’ll pack onto your ass.
.
I had visions of being the most active pregnant mama ever, but that’s not my reality anymore. In fact, I’ve become what most would consider borderline sedentary due to the pain in my crotch from PSD - yeah, that’s another thing no one tells you about pregnancy. 😐.
.
I waddle. I still have sickness that lasts throughout the day (and I’m well beyond my first trimester - in fact, today I entered the third!). And I’d be lying if I told you I love the process of pregnancy.
.
But I feel incredibly fortunate to have the ability to bring a child into this world with the person I love beyond measure (lookin at you @jamie.farrington 😘). I realize there are so many women out there who would give anything to carry a child and they are who I think of when I’m reveling in all of my pregnancy blahs and discomfort. I am so blown away by the unwavering determination and strength of those women who struggle with infertility, or those who have lost a child before ever having the chance to meet them. I’m moved by the mamas who, even though they may not be able to give birth to a biological child for one reason or another, don’t give up on the love in their hearts that they know was meant to share with a child and so they foster or adopt. I’m blown away by mamas who provide others with the gift of parenthood through surrogacy.
.
So thank you for each and every mama out there, for your journey, for your story, for your strength, for your love. I am grounded and inspired by you.
.
Becoming a mother was something I never thought I wanted, but it is the greatest gift I have ever been given. I feel so blessed to be preparing to welcome my 2nd baby into the world and could not be more excited to meet this magical little human being 🙏🏻.

I have seen so many posts for #csectionawarenessmonth I thought I would let you know my experiences with my two sections.
After days of labour with Phoebe at 41 weeks I was failing to dilate so I was rushed in for an emergency section.. it was so rushed and scared they life out of me, as they did the first cut I could feel it, the epidural had failed so I was put to sleep, then with the girls it was a planned section as non of them went head down, waters broke and sections was so calm, I really enjoyed it, until they were rushed the away after being born at 33weeks!
I've had three children and never held them once born, Phoebe was an hr old before I met her and the twins were 2hrs old before they took me to nicu and this picture was the day after before we got to hold them, obviously I'm so lucky to even experience having children and what a blessing that is but sometimes I feel so sad that I've never had those special moments, now here we are again about 14/15 weeks time another section pending... .

After days of labour with Phoebe at 41 weeks I was failing to dilate so I was rushed in for an emergency section.. it was so rushed and scared they life out of me, as they did the first cut I could feel it, the epidural had failed so I was put to sleep, then with the girls it was a planned section as non of them went head down, waters broke and sections was so calm, I really enjoyed it, until they were rushed the away after being born at 33weeks!
I've had three children and never held them once born, Phoebe was an hr old before I met her and the twins were 2hrs old before they took me to nicu and this picture was the day after before we got to hold them, obviously I'm so lucky to even experience having children and what a blessing that is but sometimes I feel so sad that I've never had those special moments, now here we are again about 14/15 weeks time another section pending... .

~ here I am almost 23 weeks postpartum still wearing my favorite postpartum products from @bellybandit. They just recently released their Luxe! sponsored | “When a Belly Wrap meets a Corset, you’re in Luxe.” I seriously love how thin and lightweight it is! It’s very easy to put on and wear under clothing which makes it a big win for me. I am also wearing their new Nursing Sports Bra which is so lightweight, I can barely feel that it’s on. .
this week of motherhood has been the hardest, by far. john wants to be held constantly and will immediately cry if you place him down for a minute. then I walked into michael’s room this morning and found him without a diaper on. I’m sure you could imagine what I found all over. .
