Thank you for making me laugh even in my darkest days ❤️ ~ nog even en mijn lieve hubby is thuis en dan mag de geboortereis beginnen! Samen op naar papa en mama zijn! De laatste week was best wel intens qua emoties en het voelen indalen van de baby. Het alleen zijn, omdat mijn lief op zee zit helpt ook niet echt mee dan. Er is zoooo veel wat ik nog zou willen delen over zwanger zijn en mijn reis en waar ik allemaal mee heb moeten dealen en zooooo veel ideeen dingen die ik geboren wil laten worden. Voor nu voelt het gewoon goed om lekker casual te blijven in wat ik deel. eerst focussen op onze geboortereis🌙⭐️❤️

“I feel like such a failure.”⠀
😭⠀
My heart sank when I heard these words from a young woman sharing her birth story.  Baby was sunny side up (face forward) and the hardest part of his tiny head was pushing hard on mom’s pelvis and her back labor made her doubt her strength.  She was devastated and discouraged because she didn’t think she’d be able to push and that fear and doubt was the strongest memory in her birth story...so it began to define the whole experience.⠀
🙏🏼⠀
I listened to the sadness in her voice and I tried to think of a way to be present with her pain, with her truth, and to invite her to expand it into more...to see the bigger picture and to find meaning.  I asked her one of my all time favorite questions inspired by my own personal patron saint of motherhood @glennondoyle “What is the truest, most beautiful story of your birth?”⠀
✨⠀
She was quiet and there were tears in her eyes.  Suddenly the story opened up and shed shame, blame, guilt, and self-doubt and it shape shifted into a tale about perseverance, overcoming adversity, and loving something so much you’re willing to walk straight into the pain to get it.⠀
🔥⠀
The key here is that the story was both true AND beautiful. The truest, most beautiful retelling of a warrior mama birthing a baby with everything she had. We have the opportunity to offer this kind of healing to our new parents. We can lean in and not try to clean up or deny or ignore or look on the bright side...we can stay in their truth AND we can encourage them to find beauty and meaning.  This story is for all of us. The listeners and the storytellers.⠀
🖐🏼⠀
What do you think new mamas need to hear most after birth?  I’ll say: you’re powerful, you’re doing great, and I’m proud of you.  Share your words in the comments in case they’re reading. ⠀

It literally fell off my shelf this morning, so I’ll take that as a sign. *

I’ve been reading more about the Hero’s Journey and mythic structure both for my writing projects and my presentation skills, and when I cracked this book open and looked at the contents, the chapters are structured according to the Hero’s Journey. 🤯

Ah the Universe and its cheeky, mind-blowing, beautiful way of bringing things into our lives in divine timing. ✨

Today we honour World Prematurity Day. We celebrate all of the ounce by ounce weight gain updates. The first time your baby finally took the bottle or breast. The first time you finally got to hold your tiny infant. And we remember all of those sweet angels that couldn't stay with us. To these families we say: you're all warriors and we honour your strength.

Soaking up this 66*F day on the front porch, reading a book and sipping on some hot tea. 🍵🌞
.
The book (Birthing From Within) was recommended by my midwife and a dear friend, to help me prepare for my plan of a natural childbirth. I’m finding it has many parallels with a non-diet, intuitive eating approach. The authors talk about “emptying the mind” of expectations and judgements of conditioned learning. They state: “true understanding springs from an open, curious mind, and can be achieved only after the cultural blinders of conditioned learning have been removed.” YES! 💕 .
I think the same can be said for rejecting the diet mentality. Diet culture conditions us to think we need external rules, that our bodies are not to be trusted, and that our natural desires with food are flawed.
.
Diet culture blinds us to the fact that our weight is only one component to health, that BMI and weight-centric approaches are outdated and harmful, and that we have so much more to offer the world than our body’s appearance.
.
Unlearning diet culture takes time, patience, compassion, curiosity, and lots of tuning out the “noise” to rediscover a joyful relationship with food and body. It is not a linear or an easy journey, but the outcomes are worth fighting for.
.
.
P.S: I am NOT trying to say that natural birth is “better” than intervention based birth. Or that I’m somehow superior for attempting a natural birth. This is simply an option I’m trying for (key word: trying!) for me and Virginia, for many reasons I chose not to go into on here as they are private and personal.

The most amazing placenta 😍

After a long two day induction, this mama and her medical team decided a cesarean was the safest way to meet her baby. Her surgery was delayed THREE times by other emergency c-sections, which gave mama more time to relax and cope with the change in her birth plan. By the time they wheeled her back to the OR, her nerves had settled and she was more than ready to meet her baby!

My daughter was born as my husband supported me in this "slow dance" position. It's one of my favorite positions to recommend to clients. Slow dancing is a simple way for partners to be active and supportive in the birth process. The gentle swaying assists baby in positioning and being upright allows gravity to help bring baby down.

Look at that power. That strength. That courage. Look at her calm and steady partner holding her close and never doubting her for a second - right until the end. 
Nobody will tell you this is easy - It's hard. Really really hard. But when she steps into her Birth Warrior, as you're witnessing in this photo, watch out! She'll move mountains.... *shared with permission

With my superfood based shake that tastes identical to a pumpkin pie 🥧 but has my body feeling like it just ate 7 salads 🙌🏽

 #throwbacktuesday That time @spencermicka captured my essence in full living color. I’m feeling like a shapeshifter these days, leaning into new ways of being and new ideas and new roles in my community. The good news is each step feels more true and more open, creatively unfolding like a messy painting. The strokes don’t always seem right but we tweak and we build and we layer until things come together and we can really see the big picture. I’m almost there, the point of clarity. I can feel it. Shout out to the ones in the messy layers and unfinished moments...we’ve got this. Keep moving and watch for the beauty as it unfolds.

Repost from #birthingfromwithin We all need a parent pep talk from time to time. Parenting is a practice like yoga. We show up and keep trying. Every day is different. They both affect us mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually. We continue to learn about our strengths, weaknesses, joys, grievienves. Apply compassion and acceptance. And, don't take yourself too seriously 😎

With a few weeks to go, Angel and I finished our #YesToBirth classes in San Francisco yesterday. Today, we are filled with gratitude, confidence, and even more passion around our choice to pursue the midwifery model of care. ☝️Did you know that a midwife spends more time and care with you than any other professional birthing model? They can even go with you to the hospital and become the Doula and advocate for you if you choose a hospital birth. The rates of interventions, postpartum depression, and breastfeeding issues go insanely down when you work with a Doula and/or midwives. 🌺 We feel empowered, excited, listened to, loved, and safe knowing we are in the driver’s seat of our birth and parenting experience ✨💕🙏🏻 // If you have any questions about midwifery care in the Bay Area, are looking for a holistic all-inclusive birth class, or just want to hear more about our ongoing experience, feel free to DM me or write questions below🤗

“Just as a woman’s heart knows how and when to pump her lungs to inhale, her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows when and how to give birth” Virginia D’Orio 🌸 I’ve made it to #35weekspregnant and I’ve been feeling very excited, kinda puffy, and externally overwhelmed with love. I didn’t know I could love this much 💗 Each little kick gives me joy just knowing baby boy is thriving and enjoying his time inside my body. What an experience! Being woman is a blessing beyond any blessing.

I was hoping for an early Halloween 🎃 baby, but it looks like I'm getting a turkey 🦃 instead! Swipe for #40weekspregnant bump photo ➡️ So far this baby has been teaching me about patience and letting go 🙏

Understanding birth technology shouldn't lull you into thinking you understand birth.
The profound mystery and spirituality of birth can never be understood with the mind, they are known through the heart. 
A good place to begin preparing is with your hearts burning questions❤❤ #birthingfromwithin #doulalove #simplyb
