Loved this post that we saw on @the.birth.space!
Repost from @the.birth.space using @RepostRegramApp - I talk about this a lot in my @hypnobirthingaustralia classes. See all that work the cervix is doing before dilation begins? Labour is a process. In most cases, it can take a while, particularly if it’s your first time. Your cervix has to soften then shorten/thin/efface before dilation can begin. So when a care provider says ‘you’re only 2cm’, cheer! Your body has done so much work to efface that big thick cervix and start dilation.

Preparing for birth, insights from an NHS midwife. I met a friend and former colleague. Lara was a doula for many years before becoming a midwife. In the video she discusses a few important elements to consider in preparation for birth. Lara also discloses how to best liaise with midwives and doctors in the NHS so you have individualised care.

Would love to hear your favourite take away from this video, comment below :) #NHSmidwife #birthpreparation #childbirth #birthinsights #knowledgeispower #birthdoula #pregnancy #expecting

Botulinum Toxin is a neurotoxin made by a bacteria called Clostridum Botulium. Botulinum Toxin is purified for cosmetic and clinical use. 🔸
Once injected into a muscle it causes temporary immobility of the muscle and creates desired cosmetic effects. With muscle receptors reforming, after a period of time, the muscle begins to contract. This is the “wearing off effect” of the Botulinum Toxin. It is used commonly in non surgical anti-aging treatments.

Common Non -surgical Cosmetic Treatments Botulinum Toxin is used for are: 🔸 Forehead lines
▫️ Frown Lines
🔸 Crows feet lines
▫️Brow lift
🔸Hyperhidrosis(excessive sweating)
▫️Massater (wise set jaw)
🔸 Nasalis (bunny lines)
▫️ Perioral lines (smokers lines) 🔸 Downturned Corners of the mouth
▫️ Dimpled chin 
Generally treatment effects are visible within 2 weeks and can last up to 3-6 months. Many clients feel minimal pain or have little side effects during and after treatments. 🔸 📲 DM for information 📧 aesthetics.byshikha@gmail.com

10 Years since Jade Goody passed away; she raised awareness about cervical cancer and saw the cervical screening rates increase however the number of women having their smear tests has decreased dramatically in the past few years. 
Have no fear have your smear!

What has become apparent to me when working with #families who I have got to know over their #pregnancy is how much this supports them in making truly #informedchoice. When you have built a relationship of trust over many months there is so much more opportunity to explore the guidelines and look at the statistics together, with women able to then decide if they wish to accept or decline the recommendations being made, based on their individual circumstances rather than the population in general.

I had an experience recently where a very lovely #midwife asked me ‘how do you get women to have a #physiological 3rd stage’ in front of the woman, I was surprised she didn’t ask the #woman, but I think that is an indicator of the imbalance of power within #maternity services. I could understand why the midwife was asking, as actually its often not given as a #choice in #hospital, women are (as I have seen and experienced on a regular basis) simply told this is recommended but there isn’t really a chance for an indpeth discussion so its just become common practice and women ‘comply’. This means no one questions it, professionals become fearful of not doing it and so it means the information they share is perhaps more bias. I was very quick to correct her and say I have absolutely no bearing on a womans #decisionmaking, I share the evidence and resources to be looked through way before the #birth and then the decision is entirely up to them. All too often due to the busy nature of our jobs as #midwives working in the #NHS we can become swept away with the idea that #guidelines are the gold standard in terms of #evidencebasedcare provision (which is not a criticism, but an observation based on my own experience of this oversight), but actually when you dig deeper it uncovers that so much of what we recommend is not evidence based at all, because there simply isn’t research for everything and the bottom line is that it is the woman who decides these things!! #independentmidwife #womanschoice #informedchoice #nhsmidwife #informedchoice #informedrefusal

Photo taken and posted with consent. 
This woman among others in Tanzania showed me how strong and courageous they are when they give birth in some horrific conditions, that you couldn’t imagine. 
The midwives have minimal resources where birthing packs are bought by the women depending on what they can afford depends on what equipment you have to assist and facilitate their births. 
Working in Tanzania was the most amazing and eye opening experience and my Mum and I both hope to go there next year 💕

The Better Births Report (2016) concluded that there needs to be more perinatal mental health support through additional funding and a smoother transition between healthcare professionals. 
Many women suffer with birth related mental health problems such as PTSD, Postnatal Depression, Postnatal Anxiety. Not all mental health problems arise following birth but can in fact develop through the antenatal period, such as antenatal depression or anxiety. 
Remember to speak out and discuss how you are feeling with your midwife, where they can support you through this. 
There is also a great organisation called mind where you can seek information regarding mental health.

I had the honour and privilege of supporting an incredible woman in labour on Wednesday night. 
She arrived at the hospital alone as her husband was away with his work in the armed forces. We spent the next few hours together in the dark, just the 2 of us swaying together, holding hands and whispering of the thousands of other women all birthing their babies around the world at the same time as her. 
She told me at one point ‘I feel the force so strong now’ and about half an hour later she had her beautiful baby girl in her arms. 
Magic ✨

Obesity is a key public health issue in the UK, with 58% of women being classified as overweight or obese in 2015. 
Exercise is a great way to reduce body fat, improve cardiovascular health and mental health. 
As midwives we discuss the importance of diet and exercise with the women in our care. This can sometimes be seen as hypocritical as we don’t always reflect on the outside what we preach. 
But we do maintain a healthy balanced diet, run regularly and go to the gym! 
Today we have completed a run and being to the gym and very much looking forward to a healthy meal! Over the past couple of years we have made changes to our lives to ensure we improve our own health! Swipe across for the World Health Organisation Exercise in Pregnancy Infographic!

It’s so important to remember to check your breasts and see your GP if you have any worries or concerns!

Here is the guidance on breast self examination from Breast Cancer Care, it is important to try and check your breasts regularly so if any changes occur they can be detected early.

Following on from International Women's day yesterday I thought I would make my next post about 'decision making for mothers during pregnancy, birth and beyond'. The high and increasing demand seen throughout the NHS (which is amplified in maternity when for most the emotions and responsibilities involve not only the women but also soon to be fully dependent and incredibly valuable baby humans), leads to readily and heavy application of the 'hopefully one size fits all approach' to healthcare provisions. The idea being that if the approach or recommendation is safe and effective then actually it is definitely appropriate to endorse across the board. In each situation this approach; is often a lot more 'logical' and efficient to apply, is evidence based, and has become the norm throughout all areas of health care. 
But not surprisingly, our needs and priorities are not all one shape or size fits all! Whilst many are happy with the 'safest' option and pleased to know that with this a positive outcome is most guaranteed, even still the positive outcome is never a guarantee and sometimes not more than with the other options. 
Due to high demands within the NHS, what is also heavily considered when deciding on a best approach to recommend, is costs and how easily and efficiently something can be provided to the many service users and this gets placed above personal needs or preferences, as this is pretty much impossible to achieve with the same approach. 
Yet, what constantly comes out of patient experience and satisfaction surveys is the great value found in individualised care. Most midwives I know strive to provide individualised care to their very best ability, however this can only go so far, when most of the care we provide is dictated by guidelines and recommendations in the workplace. 
So really the point of this post is to remind all women that a lot of the responsibility and power behind informed decision making and achieving individualised care, within maternity services, lies with 'YOU'! (Cont.below 👇)

Shout out to @auntiecath17 & @glouiseatkinson for staying active and continuing to work out during their pregnancies! 👏🏻 keeping fit and active during pregnancy allows you to adapt to your changing shape and weight gain as well as building up your stamina to cope with labour. It’s perfectly ok to keep up with and continue with your daily physical activity in a low risk pregnancy for as long as you feel comfortable and able to do so. However it is not advisable to suddenly take up any strenuous exercise if you weren’t active prior to becoming pregnant. Yoga when pregnant is the perfect exercise for you to continue with or begin in pregnancy and allows you to increase your physical strength and stamina, improve sleep, control and improve your breathing whilst also encouraging an emotional and mental connection with yourself and your baby. Always check with your midwife or health professional before commencing any new activity when you are pregnant 🤰🏼🤱🏽 #pregamummas #exerciseinpregnancy #pregnancyyoga #midwifeadvice #bondingtime #stayingfit #fitandpregnant #start4life #nhsmidwife #yogateacherandmidwife

Happy International Women’s Day! 
With the theme of today it’s a good time to talk Female Genital Mutilation or Cutting (FGM/C). In February this year was the first ever prosecution in the UK for carrying out FGM, a practice that is illegal in the UK. A lot of people still don’t know or understand what FGM is, there are different gradings of FGM but it involves partial or complete removal of the external female genitalia, usually carried out on girls as children or teenagers. 
There are over 137,000 women and girls living with FGM in the UK and over 200 million worldwide. “Todays verdict is very significant. It also justifies the RCM and its partners' relentless campaign to end FGM and to protect women and girls from this human rights abuse, despite the many challenges and push back from some groups” RCM, 2019.

It also justifies the RCM and its partners' relentless campaign to end FGM and to protect women and girls from this human rights abuse, despite the many challenges and push back from some groups” RCM, 2019. https://www.rcm.org.uk/news-views-and-analysis/news/%C2%A0rcm-responds-to-first-ever-guilty-verdict-for-fgm-in-uk #midwife #midwives #callthemidwife #midwivesofinstagram #studentmidwives #midwivesmakeadifference #mother #daughter #pregnancy #labour #birth #midwifery #maternity #babies #pregnant #pregnantwoman #nhs #nhsmidwife #midwifemayhem #FGM

Mr Dreamy 😴
.
Oh my dreamy boy. His eye is getting better by the day. It’s healing lovely so I’m praying he doesn’t have scar. .
I’m a bit nervous & very emotional at the moment - the maternity unit I have worked in since I qualified as a midwife closes on Sunday. I’ve dreaded this moment as it means relocating to another hospital 50 mins away. All the midwives & other staff I’ve worked with from there have been lovely but I’m still in mourning for my hospital - the hospital I had my Albie in, my local hospital & the hospital I thought I would work in forever. It’s so sad. I think I have been in denial up until now & the realisation that it’s actually happening after 6 years of discussions is heartbreaking for us all. So tonight I’m doing my shift there. I hope the night is kind to me. I’m going to be like a newbie who doesn’t know where a thing is. I hate that feeling. At least I know how to look after a woman & help deliver her baby. Phew. I have had a tour of the new unit so think I remember where the toilet is too. Winning.

Home and tucked up in bed reflecting on a couple of wonderful days spending time with fab colleagues and celebrating the good work all my fellow Midwives do daily as we help Women to become Mothers. We were nominated for maternity service of the year award, and though we didn't win, being in the top 5 shortlisted was an honour. Proud of all the nominees and winners I saw today, and all the unsung Midwifery heroes too 💓  #reallifemidwife #midwiferyawards #proudtobeamidwife #nhsmidwife #outfitoftheday

Effective communication is paramount in midwifery. However we can sometimes become complacent with the words we use without explaining their meaning fully to the women we care for. We use a lot of abbreviations and jargon within midwifery as a means of effective communication with our colleagues however is this really effective communication with the woman. It’s always excellent practice to discuss these words and abbreviations we use with the women to ensure they understand the full clinical picture and this also allows them to take ownership of their care.

I’m Emily and I’m a newly qualified midwife. I finished my training in August 2018. I decided to follow in my mums footsteps in 2014 where I enrolled onto an Access Course at my local college and started at University of Greenwich in 2015. Three years through my degree program, 2300 hours placement completed, 54 babies delivered, over 100 antenatal and postnatal assessments completed, 3 weeks working in Tanzania and I graduated with a First Class Degree! It’s truly one of the most rewarding jobs but also one of the hardest jobs, it’s such a privilege to be able to support women through their pregnancy, to be able to empower women to make informed choices and to be able to facilitate women becoming mothers.

Attended my chosen university applicant day today ✨ wasn’t sure what to expect at all, it turned out to be similar to open day but allowed for more in-depth discussions on your chosen course *midwifery of course for me*, and for some it was a chance to be able to ask any questions they needed to ensure they make the correct firm choice ✅ We also had ample opportunity to meet some second year midwives, including @melissasmidwifery who were all so lovely an honest about what to expect in September! •
as my offer is conditional, one thing that I am worried about meetings those conditions. Even though, I am already half way through my course and have achieved all Distinctions so far. I just can’t help but put an insane amount of doubt and pressure on myself. However, seeing those student midwives today and going around the Uni I know that I will attend has only put more fire under me to ensure that my grades stay exactly where they are and come the summer, I’ll have nothing to worry about! 😫🙋🏼‍♀️🤰🏼📚👶🏼💓 •

Day one of holiday and first book down. My god this book has made me laugh like no other and reminds me of the humour of some of the amazing obstetricians I have and have had the pleasure to work with. I cried at the end so powerful and to those who think working within the NHS is plain sailing please read it!!!! @amateuradam has literally not held back and as a midwife it’s clear the NHS has lost an amazing doctor 😢 would love to see paragraphs read out in parliament! .

🍒 Nothing beats that moment you climb into bed after a night shift and get all snuggled up listening to the wind and rain, and fall asleep! 🍒 However 2 hours later get woken up to the blooming postman banging the door knocker what seams like a thousand times, BUT, it’s made slightly more bearable when it’s an Emma Bridgewater delivery of a new cherry mug to add to the collection 🍒 -

Wishing for Summer 🥰
.
I’m sat here this evening totally procrastinating, looking at old photos of Albie & Flo instead of revising for my Newborn Life Support (NLS) course at the weekend. Of all the training and CPD involved in Midwifery I dread this course the most every time I have to do it. It’s the whole atmosphere I think, it’s like being back in school doing exams; but in this exam you have to get 100% or it’s a fail. Aargh. It’s so important & beneficial to my role in the care of newborns though & I’m always relieved once it’s done so here’s to Sunday when it’ll be over for another year or two.

After another week of minor wobbles in work, this makes me reflect and realise how special my role is. I discharged 2 women I’ve seen the whole way through their pregnancies this week and found it really emotional. This model of care is great for the women and for me so amazing seeing a woman and her family grow over the last year. Adding to that having another first year student midwife work with me for the past few weeks who has been a pleasure. Seeing her witness her first birth her eyes just lighting up with how amazing women truly are and the role she is training for 💕

With natural ageing, reabsorption and changes around the orbital area leads to increased prominence of fat pads and a deeper hollow below the eye. Therefore resulting in a sunken eye appearance. As ageing skin around the eyes looses laxity the skin is thinned out and it results in the circles around our eyes becoming darker.
Tear trough filler can make tired eyes look refreshed and awake. Micro-droplets of filler is gently administered under the eyes.
The aim of under eye filler is to give a smooth transition of the skin from the cheeks to the under eye.
Other treatments can be considered in combination with tear trough fillers if darkness under the eyes is primarily due to pigmentation.

Generally treatment effects are visible immediately but can take up to 2 weeks to see full effects. Results can last up to 6-12 months depending various factors. ▫️
