doulawisdom Part 2: Somewhat to my surprise, all of the nurses at Newton Wellesley Hospital were immensely supportive of our plan. We made the choice after seeing what looked like an extended deceleration in baby鈥檚 heart rate, to jump start labor with a cervical ripening process. Not a part of my plan at all. But that nudge was all we needed to get my body going. It鈥檚 amazing what our bodies are capable of. I was hooked up to monitors the entire day. Not part of my plan. But laboring with as little intervention as medically necessary meant I could eat pancakes and I was able to labor in the tub. Totally part of my plan. 馃槈

When I pulled him out and into this new world, Otto was surrounded by six women, not including his mama and his proud dad. And instantly the struggle to get him here disappeared. They tell you that鈥檚 how it happens and in this case they were right. 
As a reminder to us all, birth plans hardly ever go as planned, so take this in stride, mama. 
And to the mamas thinking about approaching your birth experience naturally: Yes! Our doula told me at the peak of my exhaustion and doubt: YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED!
But know this for yourself, there鈥檚 a difference between laboring and suffering. Relieving pain from suffering during labor, or choosing to relieve the pain of labor from the start - however you approach this process, should not be shameful or any less than any other path to getting your baby in your arms. You know what your body needs, and that healthy baby and a healthy you on the other end is all the matters because recovery is a whole different ballgame. Prioritize physiology over force (Shari鈥檚 words) where you can and trust yourself. You鈥檙e doing great.

doulawisdom I had the honor to attend my very first birth as an assisting Doula this week to a dear and close friend of mine, and it was the most magical and spiritual experience. It was so grounding and primal in one way, but the presence of higher energy and consciousness was huge in the room and within me. Our higher and lower selves are all participating in the process of merging the soul and the body together, growing it within the Mother's womb, and reconstructing the canal to release this life into this dimension. Everything was once birthed through the Cosmic Womb of the Universe, and everything we see in this world has a seed that has been birthed from within us or from Mother Earth itself. That is the constant process of creation, the beginning, the life, the end and this reoccurs. 
I am so looked forward to attend at a birth again as Doula, a support to the mother in this magical process. I would love to hear your birth story and if you have had an experience with a Doula馃尭 #doula #birthdoula #doulawisdom #doulasupport #birth #mother #lawofpositivism #meditation  #dailyaffirmations #astrology #numerology #111 #1111 #444 #222 #mindful #mindfulness #positiveenergy #lawofattraction #positiveaffirmations #yoga #meditation #buddha #buddhism #healingenergy #reiki #kundalini #sohum #moonchild #hippiespirits #highlysensitiveperson

doulawisdom 鈥淏irthing parents don鈥檛 always instantaneous connect with their baby. Most images capture the moment of thrilled meeting between parent and child. But oftentimes, parents who have just gone through the intensity of labor and birth are not on the planet. In many ways they are so deeply in their bodies that they need a moment or two to return to the world around them. During labor, it鈥檚 common to become profoundly internal and coming out of that state takes time or at least a few heartbeats.

Parents who don鈥檛 know that this highly internal experience can happen, even after their baby has been born and placed on their chest, may judge themselves as a bad parent from the moment of birth if the thrilled bonding they expected doesn鈥檛 immediately happen. This moment of deep internal relief, of 鈥渙h my God I survived,鈥 is a normal response that has nothing to do with the quality of parenting.

I鈥檇 say this response to birth happens at least about a third of the time. We need to normalize and talk about it before birth so if a parent responds to birthing in this way they too know it鈥檚 normal and not some kind of broken parental instinct.

Give parents time to connect and celebrate the birth of their baby. If you witness a birth where the birthing parent doesn鈥檛 instantly celebrate and coo over their baby, know that that鈥檚 ok. They don鈥檛 have to be told to come out of the deep internal zone prematurely. Give them space to find their way out. They will return to the planet and be able to oh and ah about their baby when they do.鈥 Repost @brittabushnellphd @transformedbybirth

doulawisdom If you know a woman who has recently given birth, whether she formally works or not, know that she does the hardest work that exists on the Earth.

If you have friends who just had a baby and you think they nailed it, don鈥檛 assume anything. Ask them if you can visit them. Keep your visit short. Clean their dishes, vacuum their floors, bring food for the new parents, ask what else you can do to help. 
As a mother and a postpartum doula, I know how challenging the first few months of motherhood can be. I wish everyone could have a doula, or a huge family in town who are available to take kcer the house chores and may be even to pick up some nighttime shifthe soothing the baby while the mother sleeps. But that鈥檚 not reality for many new parents. Not everyone has a family who can leave their daily duties and spend time helping new parents. Not everyone can afford a doula. At least for now. We are working on it. 
So don鈥檛 be shy, go ahead and offer a hand to your friends. It wil add on some good poilife to your karma. Imagine, one day you might become a new parent and your nice gesture might be returned to you. 
Being a new mother, a new parent is a double full-time job. Honor them.

We help you bend and flow. Pregnancy and Birth is always one thing; UNPREDICTABLE.

What we can do for that is give you evidence based information, a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, and a supporter who has your back through it all.

We hear you. We have been there, we know how incredibly hard this journey is, and our #1 goal is your soul feeling seen, heard and validated.

We help your partner shine, and we remove fear. It鈥檚 likely your partner has never experienced a birth process. We are there for you during early labour to encourage you to rest, that all is normal, and love to let partners sleep (if it鈥檚 night time). We come to your home and help you decide when to head to the hospital, or when to call the midwife. Our years of birth experience help make this decision a little less intimidating.

We ensure YOU are in charge of YOUR birth. An important part of avoiding traumatic birth is feeling like you are in control. We want you to feel like you are in the drivers seat as much as possible. When things veer off course we protect what we can, and are your biggest cheerleaders for the moment your child finally enters the world.

Do you have more questions? We are always here for a phone call, email, DM or text. Please reach out if you鈥檙e thinking about having extra support for your birth. We are here for you.

鈦
Artificial Rupture of Membranes 鈦
鈦
The amniotic sac has been protecting your baby throughout your pregnancy. But when your little one is finally ready to make an appearance into the world, the bag of waters' time has come to an end. Often the contractions of active labour will provide enough pressure to rupture the membranes on their own. And some women, about 10 to 15 percent, break their water before having any contractions at all. Other times and for a variety of reasons, however, your obstetrician or midwife may suggest to rupture them artificially.鈦
鈦
During our antenatal visits we can discuss the pros and cons of allowing your waters to break naturally and sign post you to evidence based research to help you better understand. 鈦

doulawisdom Recharging your energy 鈽锔
鉅鉅
As an introvert I get overstimulated really easily - social interactions with more than one person, loud music, constant chatter, a toddler saying 鈥渕um鈥 for the 100th time before we鈥檝e made breakfast = a recipe for feeling drained.
鉅鉅
Energy is also quite limited as birthing date creeps closer so super low expectations and big boundaries are necessary for me right now.
鉅鉅
When we try to pretend we鈥檙e fine, it鈥檚 really our thoughts telling us that who we are and what we need is not okay. But it is okay. You don鈥檛 need to prove anything to anyone. Accept who you are and ask for what you need.
鉅鉅
Ask someone to mind the kids for a few hours, go for a swim in the ocean, take a nap, have a coffee by yourself. Do whatever you need to do to make yourself feel whole again.
鉅鉅
Life asks relentlessly from us, sometimes we just have to stop everything and heal, it will all be there after you recharge your energy and emerge again.

doulawisdom This is Naima鈥檚 doula bag, restocked for fall births! Most things inside are to sustain me through what are often marathon labors. My ultimate must have is lots of @harneyteas chocolate mint black tea and a thermos that stays hot 8+ hours. I also pack a peanut ball and pump, change of clothes, face wipes, essential oils, straws, a fan, rice sock, hot water bottle, massagers, tennis ball, new chapsticks, all my overnight toiletries, a ton of food for me, just in case drinkable things (ginger ale, miso soup packs, honey sticks) for the client, and my favorite #rebozo made from African wax print (that technically isn鈥檛 a rebozo. I know the difference 馃拋馃徑鈥嶁檧锔) but I think is way better because I can throw it in the wash after each use and it travels super well.

doulawisdom This weekend at the doula training we discussed the intensity of labor and how helpful it is to stay in the present moment and focus on each contraction (~wave, as we call it in Hypnobirthing), instead of worrying about the next moment and waves. .
.
And as I sat in class I realized that no one can define pain for you. What if how you think about pain is how you will experience it? What is pain, really? .
.
Birth is not only something physical, your mental well-being and mindset play a huge role in the birthing room. Are you focused on fear or relaxation? Do you surrender to the moment or do you resist the sensations? Are you worrying about the next ~wave or do you decide to ride them one by one, entirely focused in the present moment? .
.
Thoughts? please share 馃挏

doulawisdom The Kind Motherhood group course is closing...鈦
鉁ㄢ仯
And as it鈥檚 the last day to book on, you will get 拢10 off the original price.鈦
This course was dreamed up in the days after training to be a doula. There is nothing like the space that exists within a group of kind individuals in which to be authentic. A space where you can be supported, where tears and laughter are welcomed; it鈥檚 something I believe everyone should experience.鈦
The course is six weeks of guided calls with you, myself and four other mothers, four weeks of gentle content, and a private (not-on-Facebook!) group that belongs to just you and the other course members. 鈦
I hope to facilitate a warm and encouraging space to share your thoughts, to be supported, and to find the best path for you towards the parent that you wish to be.鈦
You can find out more through the link in my bio.鈦
Booking will close tonight at 10pm GMT 鉁ㄢ仯

doulawisdom Spicy food will NOT induce labor at any gestation. 
The thought process is that it could give you bowel distress and therefore cause your uterus to react in the same way castor oil would for instance, but the chances of all those stars aligning is an impossibility.

馃尶It is very soft, fine, usually unpigmented and covers the bodies of almost all babies except for his palms, the soles of his feet, lips, genitals, nails and sides of fingers and toes.
馃尶This hair usually starts to form on a fetus around 5 months gestation.
馃尶This unpigmented hair generally falls off or is consumed by your baby between the 36th and 40th week of pregnancy.
馃尶Babies born prematurely tend to have more lanugo present than those born full term, although many full term babies are born with lots of lanugo and is not a reason for concern.
馃尶Any leftover Lanugo disappears on its own within a few days or weeks after birth. You do not need to do anything except wait for it to fall off on its own.
馃尶It does not mean your baby will tend to have more body hair as an adult.

鉃杦hen it starts to fall off in the womb, your baby swallows it and it is stored in his intestines and helps form meconium, which is the first bowel movement your little one will have.
鉃杋t helps vernix adhere to your baby鈥檚 skin. Vernix is a waxy white substance which helps your baby stay nice and warm in utero plus MANY other benefits(please read my article on benefits of vernix at badassmotherbirther.com/vernix-caseosa)

doulawisdom I used to think that being a doula meant giving massages and teaching breathing exercises, until I went through some of the hardest things I never thought I'd go through. Now I understand that holding space is about understanding what it's like to feel defeated while at the same time, becoming the strongest you've ever been, and that's what it's like to birth.

doulawisdom Sometimes you have to stop doing market prep so you can make a uterus!!! I鈥檓 obsessed with all things birth related and soooo amazed at what our bodies can do! When I was asked if I could make a uterus, I got so excited and dropped everything I was doing so i could make this amazing uterus!

doulawisdom Let me elaborate. Childbirth hasn鈥檛 always been a medical procedure. Medicine has its time & place in the childbirth process [emergency scenarios, obviously], but the reliance & sometimes unearned trust we give medical professionals, can lead to fear, pain, trauma, & unnecessary chaos during childbirth. 
If you want interventions like epidural, IV pain meds, or induction, KNOW you what comes with these options. KNOW the side effects. KNOW the potential risks. KNOW the occurrence of C-sections for your particular provider/hospital. KNOW that you can 鈥渇ire鈥 your provider if you鈥檙e uncomfortable with them, or don鈥檛 agree with their birth philosophy. If you want an unmedicated birth experience, KNOW the options to help you cope. KNOW the potential risks that come with childbirth in general. Prepare & educate yourself, so childbirth doesn鈥檛 just 鈥渉appen鈥 to you. Ask your doctors, midwives, and nurses questions. Ask for legitimate research. 
The only way our culture will shift, is if more of us know our options surrounding childbirth and challenge the status quo. Even if you do follow the status quo, make sure it鈥檚 YOUR decision. 
Doulas can help educate you, support you, and add to your confidence in childbirth. Keep in mind, only in recent history [since Victorian Era-ish] is there widespread fear surrounding birth, leading to a hospitalized birth experience. Thankfully, in most states midwives are no longer criminalized [yes, they were criminalized at one point midcentury - CRAZY!] and neither are home births. 
Just know your options, and, as your doula, I will encourage & support you in whatever YOU envision for YOUR childbirth experience.

KNOW the occurrence of C-sections for your particular provider/hospital. KNOW that you can 鈥渇ire鈥 your provider if you鈥檙e uncomfortable with them, or don鈥檛 agree with their birth philosophy. If you want an unmedicated birth experience, KNOW the options to help you cope. KNOW the potential risks that come with childbirth in general. Prepare & educate yourself, so childbirth doesn鈥檛 just 鈥渉appen鈥 to you. Ask your doctors, midwives, and nurses questions. Ask for legitimate research. The only way our culture will shift, is if more of us know our options surrounding childbirth and challenge the status quo. Even if you do follow the status quo, make sure it鈥檚 YOUR decision. Doulas can help educate you, support you, and add to your confidence in childbirth. Keep in mind, only in recent history [since Victorian Era-ish] is there widespread fear surrounding birth, leading to a hospitalized birth experience. Thankfully, in most states midwives are no longer criminalized [yes, they were criminalized at one point midcentury - CRAZY!] and neither are home births. Just know your options, and, as your doula, I will encourage & support you in whatever YOU envision for YOUR childbirth experience. #doula #birthdoula #labordoula #knowyouroptions #childbirth #doulawisdom #birth #naturalbirth #unmedicatedbirth #medicatedbirth #csection

doulawisdom This birth!!!!! Now that my oxytocin and adrenaline levels are down and I鈥檝e replenished my energy, I can reflect! Lol 
This birth was everything I needed and more! 
Words can not simply express the explosiveness of emotions, thoughts, and feelings that I have but I will try my best!

On this day I learned so much about support from my interactions with the family, the nurses, and my client herself. I鈥檝e seen enough to know that support during this special time is different on so many levels and at this point there is not a soul on this earth, and I don鈥檛 care how much you know that can tell me doulas do not matter! 
I learned that my support is PIVOTAL! I already new this of course but this birth allowed me to 鈥渇eel it!鈥 That might sound weird but if you think about it, a lot of people can do their jobs with no sort of emotional attachment because it鈥檚 just a job. But with emotion and care you know that there was love, effort, and commitment put into it

But as a doula, I discovered that there is this beautiful exchange of energy and emotion that happens between you and your client. So much so, that in the moments when their pain increases that is what fuels you as a doula to be that extra source of will power to get them right over that mountain when they need it. 
This birth without a doubt helped water my purpose a little more just by reveling in mamas strength and seeing how she rocked this birth I am forever grateful to be apart of this epic moment! Thank you @iamqueenisis 
After entering the hospital on 8/1/2019 at 6:30am for an induction mama had a beautiful birth by cesarean on 8/2/2019 at 11:00pm. Welcome to the world Zion Isaiah Beard!

doulawisdom Antibiotics before or during labor
鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅
Antibiotics are not a contraindication for placenta consumption. It is safe and normally not a concern. 鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅
It is believed that the liver processes the antibiotics. But also there just is not enough information to say anything definitively. There are no studies at this time.
鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅
But logically the antibiotic gets distributed in the mother's whole blood supply. It doesn't get concentrated in her placenta and then her body metabolizes it. If some were still left in her blood it would be diluted. 鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅
Then during the process of encapsulation, we rinse off the maternal blood. And we try to drain a lot of the fetal blood. So that's even less antibiotic that would be left.
And finally, that placenta gets divided into about 130 pills so taking a few every day would be a very minimal amount. And that is assuming that the antibiotic crosses the placenta into the fetal blood.
鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅鉅
So if you are given antibiotics during or before labor, you can still consume your placenta. 馃挏

doulawisdom How do you thank someone who helped and supported you through the most vulnerable, miraculous, scary, exciting, raw, and  soul-exposing event of your life? Every time I sit to write this post tears fill my eyes. Tears of gratitude for my precious Magnolia Jane and a positive birth story. Tears of sadness for women who haven鈥檛 had a knowledgeable advocate as they birth new life into this world. My sister was there for Me, Samuel and Magnolia. And that is something I will always cherish. Our story would鈥檝e been a lot different without her knowledge and peaceful heart there with us. She informed us of different options, gave us natural tools during labor that aided in working with contractions and helped calm our minds in the midst of a not so relaxed situation. Thank you, Lauren. The Lord has given you such a wonderful gift. You helped make our story one of hard work and joy. 
I had such an incredible team of loved ones who were there ready to take a role in aiding my precious daughter into this world. Thank you.
And to all of you expectant mothers out there. If you can find a doula you trust, I recommend having one, 100%. Take classes from her and have the knowledge and tools before entering the birth room. It made such a difference for me. 
Thank you, @bluffcitydoula

doulawisdom After having the privilege of helping several women welcome their babies into this world over the past couple months I sit here reflecting. Every one  of those women showed a sense of strength that I don鈥檛 regularly see as a bedside nurse. They all welcomed their babies in a different way, it truly is amazing how different birth can look from woman to woman. 
To all the women out there I want you all to know that in your moments of lowest of lows you have the capacity to break through, you have the strength for I have seen it. Even if it鈥檚 not through labor we as women have the capacity to over come life鈥檚 greatest obstacles. I believe in you! 
To all my doula clients who I was blessed to be part of your birth story, thank you. I am always so humbled and honored to be chosen to be part of such an intimate moment in time. 
There鈥檚 a secret in our culture and it鈥檚 not that birth is painful, it鈥檚 that women are strong鈥 馃挭馃徑

doulawisdom Tonight is my last class with this group of #bradleymethod students. Thankfully, out of the nine couples, I get to be a #doula for five of them and I will continue to be apart of the #naturalbirth journey. I鈥檝e toyed with teaching more than one day a week, but this is the first time it will be a necessity to manage personalities. Sure, people google Bradley for the title, but it has taken years to develop my own 鈥減roduct 鈥 per say. But I鈥檝e just seen so much joy through this amazing course. Dr. Bradley had a dream to have woman centered birth with a supportive partner standing with her. What he witnessed when he entered the OBGYN world was catastrophic. Women in twilight sleep, tied down to beds with lamb skin ropes because it wouldn鈥檛 leave marks for families to see. Babies with blunt trauma to their precious heads because forceps was needed to drag them out of their unconscious mother. Perhaps he will never know his battles were worth every ounce of energy he gave, but to continue to see his efforts flourish has been an honor. We take so much for granted and it鈥檚 my hope to continue making the same difference. #doulawhatyoulove .

doulawisdom So every Thursday I want to share a recipe idea whether it鈥檚 sweet or savoury. Just to encourage some really cool healthy choices and promote good health and well-being. Diet is so important, eating correctly is a challenge with all life鈥檚 hurdles and especially with little ones in tow. These raw nut bars are extremely easy to make and are no bake bars. There鈥檚 no sugar and the nutrition is phenomenal, for something to have on the go, for a quick fix, a sweet craving etc. These are a must have for mummy鈥檚! I may post another version of this recipe on a different day as I change it up so much.
鈥
My yummy mummy raw chocolate nut bars 馃ゥ馃尠馃崼馃挜
I use this amazing silicone brownie tray from amazon find it here-
amzn.to/2kdOaGFamzn.to/2kdOaGF
鈥
Ingredients 馃ゥ 4 heaped tablespoons of good coconut oil melted
馃ゥ 10-12 large pitted medjool dates 馃ゥ 2 handfuls of cashew nuts 馃ゥ 2 handfuls of walnuts 馃ゥ 2 heaped tablespoons of cacao powder 馃ゥ a heaped tablespoon of goji berries 馃ゥ one heaped tablespoon of peanut butter 馃ゥ one heaped tablespoon of pip & nut cashew and almond butter 馃ゥ pinch of sea salt or pink salt 馃ゥ a bar of decent dark chocolate I used Lindt 85% 馃ゥ chia seeds and desiccated coconut for the topping 鈥
馃尠Using a food processor or blender start by pouring the melted coconut oil to the base. Add all dry ingredients except for the dark Chocolate and topping. Blitz slowly until nuts are fully coated and texture is thick and grainy. Some people like lots of nutty texture where others will prefer smooth- play about and see what you like best. Add the mix to the moulds and start melting your dark chocolate ready to pour on top of the mix. Add topping and once cooled pop in the freezer and voila! 馃檶
Tip- if it鈥檚 too nutty and not chocolaty enough then add a little more oil and cacao. If mixture looks too wet add more nuts! 
Tag me in any posts if you recreate this recipe 鉁

doulawisdom The summer holidays were spent kissing and cuddling my loved ones. My oldest friend has a beautiful little boy called Jude. I鈥檓 putting lots of energy in to bonding with little J to ensure our future is secure. ~
After a long exhausting labour Jude just was not ready to come; much to his mothers dismay! After being so brave and strong for many hours it was advised my lovely friend needed to swiftly go for an emergency C section. As Jude was born, Hey Jude by the Beatles was played by the drs/surgeons in theatre and a little nhs team in their blue scrubs were clapping happily with the music playing as a baby was taking his first breaths. ~
Moral of the story? Just because something doesn鈥檛 work out the way you wanted it to doesn鈥檛 mean it isn鈥檛 still just as beautiful. Embrace change and you will always succeed. 馃挋 Hey Jude 馃挋
鈥
On that note can anybody share their happy C section stories? I am so excited to meet somebody who experienced the natural kind where the baby is encouraged to crawl out of mummy鈥檚 incision! And where they wipe the vaginal fluids on to the baby鈥檚 face, this is something that I adore to hear as the microorganisms that are helping a baby鈥檚 gut in the early days are from the vaginal fluid that covers the baby on the way out, entering the world full of goodness! 馃 馃挌 #csection #csectionbirth #birth #childbirthstory #birthdoula #doulawisdom #naturalcsection #happybaby #postpartumrecovery #birthisbeautiful 馃挏

doulawisdom Do you know 
the power of holding space?
.
How significance it is in that moment.
How the struggled is processed & remembered.
The potential it holds.
The power it gives.
.
Holding space for someone is to support them as they preserve, grow, and transform during an emotional experience. To take on another鈥檚 experience with an understanding that this is entirely someone else鈥檚, you to only witness. .
You to simply offer an open, safe, and trust-filled space for them as they work through their experience.
.
More often than not, presence is looked for more than action or advice. We all have the skills to hold space for others but we must be willing to open up for the sole purpose of showing up.
.
No ego
No fixes
No expectations
.
Holding space can feel like nothing.
Holding space can feel wrong or odd.
Holding space can feel ordinary.
But giving yourself to someone in a way you might deem insufficient or dull is everything but.
.
Holding space is everything in that moment for someone else.
.
You are providing sincere presence.
You are showing compassion.
You are listening with no destination.
You are igniting & encouraging their intuition & wisdom.
.
.

Motherhood; literally imprinting our bodies
.
.
It鈥檚 often been said that becoming a Mother means you鈥檒l carry a bit of your child in your heart forever. As it turns out that鈥檚 kind of true; biologically speaking
.
.
The link between a mother and child is profound, a physical connection provided by the placenta, which is built of cells from both Mother and fetus. And, yet the connection with our children is even deeper than I had ever thought!
.
.
Researchers have found that cells from our babies migrate through the placenta into the mother, taking up residence in many organs of our bodies, including the lung, heart, and brain
.
.
Further research suggests that this transfer of cells happens during every single pregnancy, even those that end in miscarriage. Perhaps, comforting to know that we鈥檒l always carry a bit of our children with us. This type of stuff blows my mind. Tell me, did you know this??
.

This gorgeous babe had the longest cord i think I鈥檝e ever seen!!

doulawisdom So I haven鈥檛 really talked about my birth of  Grayson much, but I feel it is soo important to be outspoken about it. My birth was powerful, I was powerful. I wanted a non-medicated water birth. My midwife knew my plans, my husband knew my plans, and I was certain based on research that I wanted a doula. I had a 40 hour labor. I had went through 38 hours completely pain med free, but I stalled out at 4cm and nothing I did would help me get further. I finally opted for an epidural. I was mentally exhausted, my body was physically exhausted, and I knew I would need rest in order to push my 10lber out. When I received my epidural I went from a 4 to a 10 in 2 hours. I pushed for exactly 2 hours and 13 minutes and my Angel emerged. The very downside to my birth, the only thing I truly regret.... my doula. I hired this woman to be my support. I paid an insane amount of money to make sure I had someone who was well-versed in natural pain management to be there for me emotionally and physically.  She wasn鈥檛. She showed up late, played on her phone, and even belittled my decisions to the point she made my midwife upset. Here is my honest review. I waited 2 months to post this to ensure it was truthful and honest without anger. If I can prevent one woman from feeling the way I did with her, than it is worth every moment I spent on this review. #doula #birthdoula #yeahthatgreenville #greenvillesc #southcarolina #upstatesc #pickenscounty #easleysc #greenvillesc #naturalbirth #epiduralbirth #empoweredbirth #empoweredbirthproject #waterbirth #midwife #midwifery #ihadababy #mydoulafailedme #thesystemdidntfailme #hospitalbirth #doulasupport #doulaservices #disappointment #doulatraining #doulalife #doulawisdom #midwife #midwifery #sc #greenville #midwives #birthdoula #relaxandrelease #relaxandreleasehypnobirthing

doulawisdom Piggy-backing off yesterday鈥檚 post on informed consent, it only comes naturally to touch on advocating. 
Another misconception about doulas is that they will consent for you; as in 鈥渋nstead of鈥 you. This is outside our scope of practice.  Hear me out. We will never speak for/instead of our client. We always help them advocate for themselves. My aim is to always help my client鈥檚 voice be heard. To help them decline or give consent, to ask for more time, etc. This is not my birth, it is my client鈥檚, and the more empowered the mama feels to make choices, the more powerful her birth story will be. 
A helpful tool is to remember the acronym B.R.A.I.N. Ask what are the: +benefits +risks +alternatives +intuition (what is your own intuition saying) +now (or later/can we have more time)

In case of emergency, we are so blessed with skilled care providers who act quickly to protect both Mama and baby. But if it is not a life threatening situation, use this tool to help you think through options. 
Whether or not your birth plan is followed to a 鈥淭鈥 is not the goal, birth can be unpredictable. The goal is for mamas to be heard, to be listened to, for them to be granted time rather than rushing the amazing birth process, to be involved. If she is respected, heard, and brought into the decision making process, her birth story will be filled with positivity. This is the goal.
