👌The best thing I've read on Instagram today!! Tag someone who needs to see this today. ”Regardless of your path to parenthood, birth story, choice to breast- or bottle-feed, you are a MOTHER. You've got this. And we've got you.”
Thank you @wearerobyn#fabmumng

What is a Baby Friendly Hospital? 🏨👶🏻
Some people may think that’s a strange question since all hospitals should be baby friendly. Aren’t they all kind to babies? Of course they are! But there’s actually steps that need to be taken to receive this designation and not all hospitals are given the accreditation as “baby friendly.”
If you’re curious what in the world a Baby Friendly Hospital is and why you may want to give birth at one, go to baby-chick.com. Also, we’re sharing how you can go about finding one that may be local to you. ❤️
That moment when you get your VBAC after THREE C-sections (#VBA3C)!
Last weeks birth rocked my world! So many women are told VBAC is not an option after just one Cesarean, let alone 3. This mother was so intuitive, and educated, and completely in control of her pregnancy and the 41 hour long induction at 41 weeks and 5 days. I don’t want to share all the details but, I do want to highlight some of the things that she did to set herself up for the BEST birth experience.
She hired one of the BEST VBAC providers in the state and the most patient hospital for birth (@uofuhealthwomenservices)
She hired a doula skilled and educated in VBAC birth who knew how to work through some big emotional blocks for her (me 😉).
Throughout the pregnancy and birth she was given recommendations by her provider/staff, then thought about them and the SHE decided when and if she was going to follow that recommendation.
She followed her heart and chose to be induced even after her provider told her that with her unfavorable cervix she likely had just a 10-15% chance of having a vaginal birth.
She insisted on a slow induction process.
She trusted her body, her baby, her mind, and her heart to guide her through the whole journey.
I am truly impressed with the University of Utah hospital staff, especially Dr. Silver, Dr. Disney, Dr. Benson, Dr. Hopwood, and nurses Erica, Katarina, and Adrienne for their patience and providing TRUE informed consent. What an amazing team at an incredible hospital!!
I am SO proud of this mama for working so hard to get the birth she wanted and the faith she had in herself and her intuition to guide her through the whole process. It was such an honor to be by her side as she guided this baby safely into the world.

I’ve been really excited to share this podcast episode! My doula has this amazing podcast and asked if I wanted to be on it. I was happy to share my story in hopes to help others. We talk about months leading up to the birth and how I was managing with Justin in the hospital and me coming up on my due date. We went into detail about my birth story having a vaginal and csection with my twins. I also share my thoughts on a doula and why they are so amazing! It’s a great episode! .

Thanks for having me on your show!
Also love this pic! Perfectly shows how it’s all worth it!
This past year has been full of so much change. A few major changes include having a baby, quitting my job, and starting my own business. WOW. I am also really proud of the work that I’ve done emotionally. This past year has definitely been a year of working on myself, becoming more self aware, and focusing on making intentional choices. ⠀
Believe me when I tell you that I am SO excited for what this next year brings.⠀
🍦🍦 Eat some Ice Cream today to celebrate my birthday 😉 It’s my favorite! (And if you actually do this, send me a pic of it! I’d love to see it!)
This time 12 years ago I was feeling like my second baby might be thinking about making an appearance ...
Mum baked apple and cinnamon buns downstairs during my labour 👩🏻🍳 ...
My home was where I’d chosen to have my baby; I knew I’d feel safest there and so I knew I’d birth better there ... for me, that felt right ... 👌🏻
It was 2007, the dedicated homebirth teams didn’t exist in our area ... so you just had to call and hope they could send someone to support you at home or .. most likely .. go into the hospital if they couldn’t ...
I was made to feel (by one particular midwife throughout my pregnancy) that my choice was not a wise one ... she told me I must ‘consider myself very stoic’ to want a home birth ...
But, despite this, I trusted my instinct and at 11:09pm ... supported by the most wonderfully calm and skilled midwife ... Isla Rose Ozmen was born ... 💕
The future midwife in me was born at that birth ... it wouldn’t be for 10 more years that I began my training, but I knew then that supporting choice in birth was where I was going to be at ...
Happiest of birthdays to my beautiful home birth baby and lots of love to my midwifery student colleagues, all my mentors and the many midwives I know who are also about choice ... 💪🏻💕

⚠️TRIGGER WARNING ⚠️
Pictured: me moments after witnessing an OB break a birthing mom’s water without consent by coercing her into a vaginal exam.
Picture this: Client refuses the long stick with a hook at the end (commonly used to break the amniotic sac by inserting it up the vagina and through the cervix) but consents to a cervical exam after hours of being pressured by staff. During the cervical exam the OB reaches her fingers inside the cervix and WHOOPS look at that- water breaks. What a confidence?! 😤
This is abuse. Woman on woman abuse. The OB with her tortoise shell glasses, scrunchy in her hair. She’s not a big tall white man. She looks like me but she is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
It’s time for society especially birth workers !!! to stop normalizing this abuse sold as care. Let us be radically honest with the women we are claiming to support.

New website loading! We can't wait to share our new #PeakeWomensWellness products and services like "Mommy Clean-Up!" We know that after you have your baby the struggle is real when it comes to keeping your house clean. Now we can help!
The love triangle right here gives me all the feels. Mum had just been wheeled in from recovery and Dad had been soaking in this little man for a while waiting. Bec and little Marcus locked sight as soon as she spoke. 😭
So did you notice what is missing in your insta feed? Can you believe it made the evening news last night? 🤦🏻♀️ How do you feel about it?⠀
I bloody LOVE it!! Instagram is not about the “likes” for me. It’s about the opportunities for engagement with my followers, to understand who they are & to be involved in real conversations. And I think this is really going to encourage more of it.⠀
I love hearing from you & now it’s even more important to take the time to leave comments or simply just say hello. If you like something I post, I would be so happy to hear from you.⠀
I would love to know your thoughts on this latest update from @instagram... what do you think - yay or nay?⠀
Yesterday, I had to remind an OB that mama gets to decide how she pushes even though he said, “I prefer she lay on her back.” 🤔😐😑<— my EXACT response.
As my client’s doula, I then turned to her to give her the space to decide what she knew was best for her, despite everyone else’s knowledge (**mine included**) and “preference.” And you know what, she chose to labor laying on her side while I supported her leg since that was working for her. Dad was able to hold her hand and calmly speak affirming words of encouragement as she worked so very hard for her baby!!
Mamas, when birthing 👉your baby out of 👉**YOUR** vagina👈, it is 100% 👉your decision in the way 👉you are positioned.
We know being upright is a great way to give your baby enough space to work through your pelvis and past your tailbone, which is hard work for the both of you. However, birthing in the position that is most comfortable and effective is a choice you get to make! Whether you lay on your back, stand beside the bed, squat upright, or on all fours, IT👏👏 IS👏👏YOUR👏👏CHOICE!👏👏
After baby was born my client thanked me for standing in the gap for her. Respectfully speaking up for my mamas is absolutely not easy, but it is my mission to make sure mamas are heard and given all their choices they so rightfully deserve.
Who is standing in your corner come laboring day? When labor lasts longer than anticipated and dad needs a break to rest, who will be by your side to remind you the importance of nourishment and movement during labor? Rest is key, too! I was able to encourage mom to take a break and allow her body to progress on its time. Have you considered hiring a doula to ensure your choices and preferences come before protocol and “by the books” practices? If not, you totally should, especially if you’re birthing in a hospital! 👌❣️

12 years ago, this is how I met my baby. She was 8 hours old. Early, bruised, unable to breathe well. I couldn’t hold her, I could only talk to her and hold her hand.
Short version - she was breech, I had an ECV to turn her, it worked but tore part of her placenta, and she was born by cesarean. At two days old she was lifeflighted an hour away to a level three NICU, and she came home at a week old.
I didn’t breastfeed her until she was 4 days old. I had an ample supply, so that wasn’t an issue, but our entire relationship was a struggle.
Her birth ripped me open, and I’m still healing and growing and relearning things 12 years later.
Her birth set me on the path I’m on now. She gave me insight and joy and heartache and pain, and I may wish things had been done differently, but this was her birth and my birth and I don’t think I would change it, even now. #midwifery #indiebirth#birth#pregnant#midwife#postpartum#newborn#hospitalbirth#cesarean#csection
'The midwife said it would be good'
This ISN'T a reason to consent to an intervention, procedure, drug etc, but we are all guilty of it at some point in our lives.
When I ask someone during a class if they have hard of X, Y or Z and they say, yes, I'll have that as the midwife said it would be good, my next question is always - do you know what that is?
I feel very sad to say that the majority of the time, they say they don't really know anything about it. They have just thought it would be good because the midwife says so.
It is wonderful that you trust your midwife enough to go ahead with their recommendations and I am not for one second saying that you shouldnt consider a healthcare professionals opinion, but you need to know what you are consenting to first!
This isn't your fault though. Your midwife should be giving you the information you need to make these choices, or if like in many places now, there isn't enough time to do so, atleast provide a leaflet or decent website which holds the information you need.
I always say to women that you shouldn't do something just because someone else told you to, or someone else did it before you. It should always be your informed decision, regardless of whether you end up doing said thing or not. I could not care less, as long as it is what you feel is right for you.
You wouldn't jump off a cliff just because I told you to 💖
This is a key part of all my classes, because I want to instill you with confidence and support you to be in control. Decision making is central to how you perceive your birth experience, so if you want to get a good insight into your choices, get in touch for more information on what I can offer you 🤰😘🌟

🌟 Instructor Spotlight 🌟
Or shall we say, co-founder spotlight! It is amazing to have the lovely Wendy of @themamaspace taking the limelight today 😍
Hi there I’m Wendy, originally from Manchester or MADchester as it was affectionately known back in the day. Growing up in Manchester is something I’ll never forget, incredible music, I was and always will be an indie/rock girl, but I also love Take That and of course the mighty Reds!
My claim to fame was being on The Captains Log video when United won the treble and we used to go to the same bowling alley as Take That and many a time would be bowling in the next lane!
I am married to Paul, the best husband of course, who supports be in everything I do, he’s a keeper! The greatest gift is being mummy to Charlie 9yrs and Alfie 6yrs, my boys, we live in Farnborough, Hampshire with our two cats and 1 fish. I love being at home, pottering in the garden, cooking and baking and singing my heart out to The Killers.
My first job as a Midwife brought be down South in 1997 after three years training in Liverpool, it was a dream come true for me after a childhood dream to become a Midwife.
22yrs later and after a long career in the NHS both in Midwifery and Sexual Health I now feel so lucky to be doing what I truly love.
I have been teaching Hypnobirthing and working as a Doula for 8 years and the support of Paul and an incredible Midwife (Tanya) that gave me the power and belief to birth my second son Alfie at home in the pool in 3 1/2hrs. The two most incredible moments of my life!
In 2018 myself and my lovely friend Melissa decided to go for it and take the huge step of developing our own Hypnobirthing Programme. The Little Birth Company was born and what a journey it’s been. I am so proud of everything we have achieved in such a short time, almost 80 incredible instructors sharing our vision that Hypnobirthing isn’t about achieving a ‘perfect birth’, together we are supporting one woman at a time, sharing that any type of birth can be a positive experience and that Hypnobirthing can play a huge part in preparing women for a positive birth.

One truly unique aspect of Hypnobabies is the fact that our Hypno-moms can walk, talk and move around in-between birthing waves, while remaining completely relaxed and comfortable, still deeply in hypnosis during their births.
Many women want to use upright positions and movement for birthing, so in Hypnobabies we have what is called, “Eyes-Open Childbirth Hypnosis”.
Our Hypno-moms are encouraged to become as mobile as they like, and often this technique allows for much better descent and positioning of the baby without sacrificing hypnotic focus or comfort. In Hypnobabies you also learn to use a birth ball, rocking chair, shower and positional changes to aid your baby’s progress, which will be greatly appreciated when the big day comes!
If you have listened to your Hypnobabies hypnosis tracks and practiced your Eyes-Open Childbirth Hypnosis on your own (as directed in your course), your inner mind has been trained and your body can experience Hypno-anesthesia from above your breasts to the middle part of your thighs, including your arms.

Priscilla is a Birthing From Within certified doula and childbirth educator. Her journey as a birth professional began shortly after the birth of her first child when her midwife suggested she become a doula. This resonated with her and one year later she began training. Since then, she has been passionate about supporting and mentoring couples throughout the childbirth process. Through her experience as both a mother of two and a doula, Priscilla has witnessed first hand the tremendous difference the support of a doula can make as a birth unfolds.
She has attended over 500 births since 2000 and offers support in hospitals, homes, and birth centers. She believes birth is a diverse and unique experience. Each deserves to be met and tended to with individual care based in knowledge, confidence, compassion, and without judgement as couples move through this rite of passage. Birth support is for the person giving birth and their partners as each will have their own birth experience and roll to play. Priscilla is there to support the whole birth and all those involved. She provides a variety of hands on physical support, pain coping techniques, guidance for partners, aromatherapy, informational support, postpartum and breastfeeding support.
Priscilla has mentored childbirth classes over the years, supporting couples as they prepare mentally, emotionally, and spiritually for their journey through childbirth and into parenthood. As an educator she provides couples with the opportunity to prepare holistically for their birth. You will develop practical pain coping skills, and an understanding of birth information, as well as delve into the emotional and spiritual exploration to uncover any fears that may impact your birthing experience. You will discover the courage to be vulnerable and show up fully in your own unique birth journey, find your own voice, and embrace your passage into parenthood.
