as a doula, i often remind partners that i am their doula too. as they navigate the birthing experience, they have support to process anything that comes up for them (anxiety, concerns or questions). they can lean on me for their own comfort and clarity. it is important that they too take care of themselves throughout the birth to be the best version of support for the birthing person.
this lady is a perfect example of fierce advocate and nervous new parent. she fought to have her wife fully supported by making sure their doula could be in the OR even at a hospital that has a strict policy against it. while, “arguing” her case, she ended with “I need her here! 😅”! they had hired additional support for the both of them!!

I just can’t help but sit and chat with every pregnant woman I meet if/when the opportunity arises 🙃 I met this mama here in Spain while we participated in a spiritual empowerment camp for children and youth where we were helping facilitate. While on a break and while we talked, I gently massaged her legs as we talked about her two previous birth experiences and the anticipation of this next one #doulalife#wejustmet#anywhere#everywhere#connect#motherhoodlife

This post is way to long overdue for me! Juniper Raine was born on a BEAUTIFUL July 4th morning and then my family and I went on vacation. AND for the first time in years I actually didn’t work on vacation. Hence the radio silence the last couple weeks. I LOVE what I do and typically miss a few days of vaca to be with clients during their birthing time or take a few phone calls, study for an exam or continuing Ed. This year! I vowed I wouldn’t do any studying or working. I did check in with this sweet family a couple of times. 😆 I can’t resist hearing of those sweet snuggles. Congrats L+J. I am honored to have been part of you amazing birth team! #birthyourway#homebirth#greenstorkmn#doulalife #doula#birthsupport#birthwhereyouwant#howyouwant#wesupportyou#waterbirth#birthphotography#oncalllife
"I am intoxicated by your magic and wonder." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was invited to join a couple friends in a powerful weekly mind meld...sharing goals, challenges, and inspiration while our kiddos run wild in the free grocery-store childcare area. We trade off sharing quotes with one another for the week and this is today's. I have no idea where it came from, so if you know who I can attribute it to, please share! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We were focused on connection this week, and when else is this idea so prevalent as in those moments after birth? If we can bring that magic and wonder of newborns into our daily interactions with others, how sweet would life be? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thanks to my support system and all the connections I'm making!
I know you want a smooth, uncomplicated and really positive birth experience for you & your family! The really big question is . . . ⠀
How does that happen?!?! ⠀
I'll let you in on a little secret 🤫Not by accident my friend 😉Birth is about 80% mental. Crazy to think I know! ⠀
Which means your mindset, your preparation, your education, your beliefs about birth, and the choices you make (or don't make for that matter) largely determine the outcome of your birth. ⠀
Don't worry my friend...I'm here for you! I've got you on this one. I've designed an online childbirth class for expectant parents to gain the knowledge and understanding they need to make the decisions that are best for them and their desired experience. ⠀
You'll develop confidence in yourself as we learn what to expect during labor and birth. And while no one can plan their birth, you absolutely CAN have a rewarding, satisfying birth experience! It starts now my sweet friend ❤️⠀
Send me a DM if you'd like to learn more or head to www.yourbestbirthcourse.com to check it out! I'd love to hear from you! ⠀

Cafes and coffee shops have always been home to the starts of revolutions ... so it seems a fitting place to start brewing our own big ideas. Keep an eye for some exciting things coming this fall!!

It's pretty amazing that our bodies shift into autopilot when we're pregnant and they morph into exactly what we need to make room for and nurture a baby inside us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We can also handle high amounts of excruciating pain, in the form of contractions, back pains, heartburn and foot swelling!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There's also the mental stress of worrying that the baby we're carrying is healthy, juggling work with pregnancy exhaustion, trying to plan out the nursery down to the last perfectly-matched detail and coming up with a baby name that's unique enough to stand out yet won't get him or her teased on the playground for years to come.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The universe only gives you as much as you can handle. Pregnant women are superheroes, because they can handle anything the universe has to throw at them!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

TELL US: What's your pregnant super-hero strength?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

E essas contrações? Como ocorrem? Para que servem? Quando acontecem? 🤔
Não precisa esperar sexta-feira pelo Globo Repórter, nãooo! 😂 Vamos lá desvendar tudo isso!🤰🏼 .
No primeiro vídeo, temos as contrações uterinas de Braxton Hicks, mais conhecidas como CONTRAÇÕES DE TREINAMENTO. São contrações de preparo para o parto, provocam um endurecimento da barriga e começam, normalmente, lá pelas 30 semanas, mas podem aparecer a partir das 20, tá? Relax! 🧘🏻♀️ Caracterizam-se pela IRREGULARIDADE: 3 ou 4x por dia (variando a cada gestante), onde começam e terminam sem causar dor e sem provocar mudanças no colo do útero (vejam no vídeo que ele está representado pela porção final do balão - permanecendo da mesma forma a cada contração, certo?). 🎈
Agora, vamos para o segundo vídeo: as CONTRAÇÕES EFETIVAS são aquelas que ocorrem no trabalho de parto REAL-OFICIAL. São caracterizadas pela REGULARIDADE, se tornam previsíveis e acontecem numa progressão de tempo, frequência e intensidade, ou seja, cada vez duram por mais segundos, ocorrem num intervalo de tempo menor e ficam mais dolorosas. Essas contrações vem lá do fundo do útero e causam o afinamento do seu colo. A cada contração o colo vai ficando mais fino e mais dilatado... Até que: VAMOS LÁ, controla a respiração, relaxa o assoalho pélvico, olha esse puxo maravilhoso e... NASCEU a nossa bolinha de pingpong, OPS, bebê!!! 😂 👶🏻 .
Percebam que nas contrações efetivas o útero TODO trabalha, uma parte contrai para “expulsar” o bebê e a outra parte relaxa para dilatar e afinar o colo, permitindo a passagem do bebê. NOSSO CORPO NÃO É MARAVILHOSO? SOS, eu amo tudo isso!!! 😍❤️
Quem aí teve contrações de treinamento? Me conta nos comentários 👇🏻 .

Desde sempre eu acreditei! Desde a primeira mensagem contando tua história, falando do nascimento do Miguel, dos teus medos e do teu sonho!
Fui olhar aqui nossas conversas e vi q te respondi na mesma hora: serei a doula de vcs, eu estou contigo! 💪🏻👊🏻❤️ Foi amor à “primeira conversa” 🥰
E aquela menina mulher/ que me dizia que precisaria de mim pq era “fraca” pra dor se tornou uma leoa e em nenhum momento deixou que a sensação de dor fosse maior que sua fé no seu corpo e no processo ❤️
Todos temos coragem e medo, a diferença está em qual deles alimentamos durante a busca de nossos sonhos! .
Obrigada amada por ter me escolhido pra viver com vcs esse sonho!
O cantarolar do expulsivo jamais será esquecido 😭
Resposta a mensagem linda que recebi ontem com essa foto dessa família maravilhosa que acompanhei de um VBAC poderoso 💪🏻❤️😍 #partonatural#partonormal#partocomrespeito#partocomamor#doula#doulatubarao #doulasc #doulalife
Today we celebrated 15years of this wonderful being.

I went for a walk last night with my "baby" as I decompressed after an incredible birth. The baby came into the world in a fast and furious way, into the arms of the most loving parents. The mom was so strong that I felt empowered just being in her presence.
As my little boy looked for airplanes in the sky and sang Baby Bumble Bee, I thought of how birth is unpredictable. But that knowledge and preparation leads to empowerment. I reflected on the love and support this mom recieved from her birth team.
And I was hopeful for our future.

⏳Cuando llega el tiempo de volver al trabajo... .
🌼Combinar los cuidados de nuestros hijos, la lactancia materna y el trabajo fuera de casa algunas veces es muy difícil. .
🌼Se puede tener el intenso deseo de volver a nuestra antigua vida laboral o la necesidad económica que nos obligue. En ambos casos, separarse del bebé puede generar angustia. Ambos, bebé y mamá se necesitan de manera contínua y amorosa. .
🌼Es muy probable que al volver al hogar tus niños requieran de un poco de atención extra, dependiendo de sus edades..
🌼Es MUY IMPORTANTE contar con apoyo para este momento, familia, amigos, puericultoras, compartir experiencias con otras madres que estén pasando por lo mismo, puede ser de mucha ayuda. .
🌼 Buscá tribu, compartí, preguntá, recordá que la información es poder.💚

Happy Hump Day you lovely souls 🌿✨ How do you unwind after a rough day? A favorite of mine is tea that promotes calmness and clarity. Something I can sip on before I start the day or before bed. Such a simple “go to”.... and we could all use a little calm + serenity ✌🏼☺️ #healthymamahealthybaby#teafortwo#amiright
What's one piece of advice that I consistently give to my doula clients? "Try all the positions." You can't pre-judge all the positions prior to labor. It's part of keeping an open mind. .⠀

This Affirmation Wednesday, I wanted to bring awareness around the birth experience from the perspective of the baby! Sometimes when we are deep into labor, it is possible to disconnect from the MotherBaby unit and focus the room on the birthing person. Of course, the mother is amazing and deserving of attention. As attendants of this birth (doula, father, care provider, mother), we must also take care to welcome the baby into his first moments earthside with warmth and peace.
What can this look like? Some ideas:
Keeping lighting dim, lowering our voices despite the excitement, bringing attention to our breath, and slowing the pace to allow baby to transition and acclimate. Limiting cell phone and camera use (maybe designating just one person to document) can also help us be the most present.
I just talked about this with my therapist today. It’s a season of growth, change and evolving for me. It feels weird and overwhelming but a new norm is on the horizon. 💜
It’s ok to reflect on your life and determine what is using up so much of your energy and not serving you in a positive way and letting it go, dear mama. Friendships which are no longer meaningful can be avoided and boundaries can be put in place. Spaces where you feel unsupported or disempowered can be avoided and new spaces where you feel comfortable and like you can be yourself in them should stay. A job which no longer makes sense with your life as a mother can be replaced with one that does (easier said than done I know, but not impossible). And core beliefs about the way life should be and unrealistic expectations of yourself sometimes need to go.
Protect your mind and energy dear mama. It’s ok to avoid the people and things that cause you pain- you have the power to carve out a life that suits your emotional and physical needs. This isn’t to say that we run at the first sign of discomfort or stress. But I think we all have those elements in our lives where we’ve stuck out with something for so long and it simply isn’t worth the energy and time it consumes and could be replaced with something much better and much more deserving of our time and energy.
You may find that once you’ve cleared out the things that aren’t working, that you’ve made space for the things that actually matter and bring more meaning and positivity to your life. And that is precisely the type of transformation we need in these busy seasons of our life.

Les presento a Eliel, nació el viernes a las 23:01 después de una labor de parto que empezó justo en la semana 40 con contracciones desde las 7 am, logré la dilatación completa y después de intentar de todo (hasta pararme de cabeza literal) sólo me faltó pujar pero el bebé no logró acomodarse por lo que se convirtió en cesárea necesaria y fue justo a tiempo y ambos estamos bien, gracias a haber tenido trabajo de parto el apego se logró de inmediato, gracias Güera y Mariana por apoyarnos en todo.

Since the move and all the changes have been happening I’ve got a lot around my ears! (Yes this is a funny German saying implying my busyness level being high 😂) So let’s play a game called “Instruction time”! This is me, Denise. I am the person behind Mother’s Companion Doula Services.
I grew up in Hamburg, Germany and moved to Whitehorse, Canada when I was 19years old.
I was supposed to come to Whitehorse after I graduated school to visit family and work for the summer... except I loved the mountains 🏔
And wilderness too much that I stayed 🥰
It took years to find my husband but when I did it took us only 6 months to get engaged and another year to get married 👰
We then had our daughter just another year after and that’s when I decided to become a doula!
My personal experience in childbirth wasn’t the most pleasant one which lead me to becoming a doula.
A lot of times my husband and I felt lost in the hospital rooms and very much lonely even though we tried to comfort each other.
Both of us have seen the struggles of becoming parents and it has tested our marriage in more than one way - but it has been truly making us stronger together 😍
Is what I want to help parents with.
Create a birth experience and parenting journey you can look at and feel proud you did it together and grew as a couple while bringing your precious baby into the world ❤️ Now, who are you?!
Are you a local entrepreneur or business? I’d love to hear from you 😘

Менархе, как священный процесс в жизни девушек.
При разговоре о женском цикле, как правило, на ум приходит один – месячный цикл. И это то, о чем принято молчать не только в обществе, но и в семье. И к моему большому сожалению, юные и неопытные девочки о менструации узнают скорее из видеорекламы или интернета, а не от своих мам. Почему так сложилось в нашей культуре? Разве это грязная тема? Неправильная?
Ведь месячный цикл важнейший этап в жизни каждой девочки. Необходимо понимать, что он оказывает огромное влияние на нее. Поэтому рядом должна быть мудрая женщина, которая готова оказать поддержку и приоткрыть завесу таинства процесса перехода девочки в девушку. Это должен быть праздник. Праздник менархе.
Менархе – это первое менструальное кровотечение, вызванное выработкой определенных гормонов. Но ученые до сих пор не могут объяснить, от чего начинается этот физиологический процесс в организме каждой девочки.
Анхелина Мартинес Миранда рассказывала, что в Мексике менархе – это священный процесс. Девочкам задолго до наступления 13-летия (примерного времени первой менструации) выдается платье, которое они вышивают специально для вступления во взрослую жизнь.
И не только юные создания ждут это таинство. Взрослые женщины готовят белые тряпочки, которые символизируют прокладки, вышивая на них цветы. А после 13-летия, когда наступает менархе, девочке устраивают ритуал: ее «пеленают» и женщины кладут на нее свои руки, в таком положении все сидят какое-то время. Потом виновнице торжества делают массаж ребозо и обнимают, ведь ОНА НЕ ОДНА и важно донести до нее эту информацию. Сам ритуал завершается танцами и какао с корицей, которое в Мексике имеет особый почет.
Конечно, мы далеки от мексиканских традиций, но в наших силах говорить на эту тему, поддерживать своих дочерей и рассказывать о естественных процессах, о зрелости, о переходах в их жизни. Ведь для того, чтобы женщина стала счастливой, здоровой, красивой, ей важно жить в гармонии с природной цикличностью.

Eu estava assim hoje, sentada na calçada de um restaurante alternando entre dar colo para duas recém-nascidas enquanto observava e ouvia os pais que necessitavam de ar puro e contato c o mundo apreciar com as mãos livres um simples almoço.
Eu sentia compaixão e sorria. Eles me pediram p tirar esta foto para guardar de recordação e explicar p as meninas quem eu era. Eu pedi permissão p postar. ( meu coração explodiu de emoção)
O apoio ao pôs parto torna-se cada vez mais parte essencial do meu trabalho como doula. .

Comment below with your pregnancy cravings! ⠀⠀
I wish I could say I ate super healthy food while I was pregnant. Buuuuut, truth is I craved all the sweets! Waffles were a pretty consistent craving for me all three pregnancies. Cap’n Crunch was a close second. Ohhhhh, and apple juice!
We have a weird/fun episode about 🔴ANCIENT PERIOD STUFF🔴 coming up for ya this week, kweens! Our favorite guest host @monica2mbs joined us again and the result was a lot of bizarre factoids and giggles (as usual). Can’t wait for you to hear all about period management through the ages! Download ep 93 when it’s released tomorrow (Thurs July 18) to listen.
What does a doula do? So, up until a few months ago (when I started my doula journey), I didn't really know that much about doulas. I think I first heard the term on a Gilmore Girls episode (ok, Gilmore Girls ♥️) when Sookie is about to have her baby and hires a woman to be her doula. She comes across as being this strong, mama and baby protector, but kind of in an intimidating way! I felt like a doula was a birthing "extra," a luxury for the wealthy, and a way for the husband to take a backseat role in labor and delivery. Some people have even asked me what the difference is between a doula and a midwife (such a big difference!). So I wanted to take a minute to define doula. .
A doula is a trained nonmedical professional who offers informational, physical, and emotional support. She provides continuous one-on-one support to a woman during pregnancy and delivery. She works with and supports the mother's birth partner and/or other support personnel. She supports and advocates for the mother in her birth preferences. She helps initiate breastfeeding.
I will share more about the benefits of continuous support and doula care in the future, but I hope this definition adds to your current understanding of doula work and labor support! .
⭐(Posted with permission) This photo was taken just before the mom entered transition. I did a light touch (effleurage) massage on the mom's contracting uterus, while Dad was down by mom's swollen feet giving her a foot massage. A moment later, we were trying a new position and new techniques because this was no longer helpful.

Hello, again 🌞
Life has been busy and I haven't had time to give this space but I wanted to introduce myself. Hi, I'm Jennifer. I am a:
•Mother of F O U R
•Pediatric emergency nurse
•Passionate advocate for birth education & empowerment
•Doula (working toward DONA certification)
I love to quilt, good tex-mex, chubby baby cheeks, real conversations, and coffee. I am taking a very limited number of clients right now until I am able to transition out of nursing into birth work full time. If you're wondering how a doula could help you I'd be happy to chat!
