They Get It…Why Can’t We?

 

As some of you may know, I have just returned from an awesome vacation in Belize.S6304091 While visiting a friend in Corozal Town, we passed a park at the water edge called Mother’s Park.
In the center of this park, for all to see, every single day, S6304087in color no less, is a statue of a mother breastfeeding her baby.
PERFECT! JUST PERFECT!

S6304089
As my picture was being taken, this little girl wanted to stand with me. With her mother’s permission, we posed.
In the second picture, she S6304090wanted us to say “cheese”. Who am I to deny such an adorable child?
Our country is so advanced compared S6304088to this small country. How can we be so delinquent in something that is so very natural?

 

Happy Holidays!

May you and your family

have a most wonderful

holiday season!!!

Hypnobabies®

Hypnobabies® says…
“Enjoy your baby’s birth in comfort, joy and love…”

And that is exactly what I witnessed!

But this type of birth is only going to work for you if you believe and if you invest yourself…also known as practice and prepare.

Hypnobabies® was not the only thing going on with this birth.

There was just so much love in this room…between mom and dad and son and parents. It was perfect the way dad read the script while son performed the touching. And, of course, when there is this much love you know that the oxytocin levels are unbelievable. Then add the soothing effect of the warm waters of a birth pool…well, no wonder this labor did not go on for hours on end.

And just to make this birth even more special…a well known doctor, Dr. Stringer of Central Carolina OB/GYN in Greensboro, NC, was the one who had the privilege of guiding this baby to her momma’s waiting arms.

A week or so later and it was finally my turn…

     I love my work!!! Thank you, Mom & Dad!!!

Whenever…However

“Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body and your spirit for the rest of your life.”  ~ Ina May Gaskin

                                              

Waterbirth…so natural, so gentle, so safe!

Yes…a waterbirth is natural birth. It is so much more gentle for momma and baby. And it is safe…baby is not going to drown; there are no infections.

It can even be safe for VBACs, as is shown here.

Women’s Hospital of Greensboro, NC has the statistics that show the wonderful outcomes.

However, you must be a qualified candidate for a waterbirth and only your care provider can determine this for you. You must also have a midwife attend your birth.

For more information about waterbirths at Women’s Hospital of Greensboro, please feel free to contact me:
