naturalbirth

Ancient Indian Birth depiction. When I was in southern India I saw a lot of uplifting birth imagery. The birthing mama here is positioned on an incline using the midwife to prop her top leg into a squat creating more space in her pelvis for the baby to move down and out. “Apana Vaiu” Sanskrit for downward outward energy flow is the energy that governs the second phase of birth. The birthing goddess is surrounded by women “doulas” a support network of women who are guiding her to cross the threshold into motherhood. Women traditionally delivered the young and women supported women during childbirth. #Doulas strive to keep the legacy of women supporting women alive and thriving. #India #art #birth #mamaglow #doula #midwives #blissfulbirth #naturalbirth #labor #yoga #women #glowpower #empowerment #motherhood (at Mama Glow Land )

As a Doula, I support birth. There is no perfect way to give birth, but there is a perfect way for YOU!

Find a doula that will support and empower you to make the best decisions for your body, your baby and your birth!

Vernix Caseosa is a white cheeselike protective material that covers the skin of a fetus. But, what is it, and why do babies have it
👶
Vernix is produced during the third trimester and it provides a temporary skin barrier for the watery environment babies live in while in utero. The prenatal functions of vernix include:” waterproofing, since due to the low surface energy, vernix caseosa is highly unwettable; the facilitation of the skin formation in utero; and protection of the fetus from acute or sub-acute chorioamnionitis (an inflammation of the outer (chorion) and inner (amnion) fetal membranes due to a bacterial infection). During delivery, vernix caseosa acts as a lubricant while postnatally, it exhibits antioxidant, skin cleansing, temperature-regulating and antibacterial properties
🚼
Since we have no control over vernix during pregnancy and delivery, it’s important to discuss its postnatal significance where we do have control. Proven to have such great benefits postnatally, it makes you wonder why we are in such a rush to give newborns their first bath removing vernix
👶
Modern science and Western Medicine recognizes the benefits of vernix. A study regarding the significance of vernix was published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, titled: Antimocrobial Properties of Amniotic Fluid and Vernix Caseosa are Similar to Those Found in Breast Milk. This study revealed that a number of immune substances were present in both amniotic fluid and vernix samples. Tests using antimicrobial growth inhibition essays showed these substances were effective at deterring the growth of common perinatal pathogens
🚼
Results from this study brought into question the practices commonly used when treating newborns. The study suggests that baby’s first bath should be delayed until at least twenty-four hours after birth. 👉 #Vegantakeover #ChildBirth #VernixCaseosa #NaturalBirth #HomeBirth #WaterBirth

Did you know that birth plans are rarely followed? The truth is, many expecting parents *know* what kind of care they want during their birth, but in the end, they don’t know how to get it!

The solution? You are invited to an exclusive Evidence Based Birth® workshop for expecting parents, taught by Heidi Duncan, Evidence Based Birth® Instructor & Birth Doula. In this workshop, you will learn the Six Essential Steps of HOW to get evidence-based care during your birth.

This Evidence Based Birth® Workshop DOESN’T replace childbirth education classes. Instead, the resources you will gain at this workshop are THE MISSING LINK for those of you who want evidence-based care but are worried about your wishes and decisions not being respected when you actually go into labor.

Saturday, February 27
4 PM - 7 PM
894 Highway 76, Suite 104, Clarksville, TN, 37043

More details and Tickets available at Www.expectingnewlife.com in the Special Events store

{pregnancy & baby series} these were important during my Labour. It’s a good thing I prepped my husband before because I was not thinking clearly at this point {natural birth craziness}
He put lavender in the bath water and rubbed it up my back. It helped calm me and it relaxed my muscles. He rubbed deep blue in my back to soothe my muscles. It felt really good because of the cooling effect too.

I highly recommend these 2 during Labour.
