Tellmeagoodbirthstory
On my way to a birth yesterday, I texted the dad suggesting he might want to run a bath for his wife who had started having strong contractions. ‘Not sure that’s going to happen, she’s in a corner, on all fours,’ he wrote back.

I smiled when I read it – it had been a stressful journey across London in rush hour and my adrenaline was high and the need to say something/ do something was a way to get rid of some of it. It was for MY benefit.

So how glad I was to be sent that great wake-up call before arrival; a salutary reminder not to gear, not to steer, to never meddle with a mother in labour who has – and FEELS that she has – what she needs.

Home brings out the best in a birthing body – women feel their own authority, and find their own way – and this was never clearer than yesterday. At every single joint and juncture, she knew what she wanted and knew what to do.

There were no assessments, and her body naturally segued from one phase to the next without the need for accouncement or conscious awareness. It required us attending to let go, to follow her flow…to trust that each blow-breath, each ululation was taking her somewhere, as for sure she herself never seemed to doubt it.

On the outside, the final phase seemed to take a while – and in a hospital setting under timed conditions, someone would have certainly created a deadline and said something was wrong. But thanks to a fabulous unobtrusive midwife, and the fact that we were in her own low-lit kitchen with a couple of onlooking cats and some great folk waltzes as accompaniment, nothing was said, and nothing was done.

Thanks to the quiet, it was obvious to all that the mother knew everything was as it should be – that she was unconsciously attuned to every little shift and felt full confidence that her body and baby were getting on with things just perfectly.

NEW POST! Many of you have seen the new headlines proclaiming that babies should sleep alone to improve their sleep. Well, let’s just call it what it is: BS. You can read the details here.

A mother’s age doesn’t matter, study suggests
A mother’s advanced age at childbirth is not the reason for the elevated risks of low birth weight or preterm birth — such risks may instead be related to individual circumstances and behavioral patterns of the mother, suggests new research.

My birth plan
It is great that you have such confidence with your birthing style and know your body’s tendencies. My first birth was an emergency C-section so I am not sure what my body would have done otherwise. In some ways my second pregnancy feels like my first because I have no idea what to expect as I go to…

“‘Birth, Breath, and Death’ is one extraordinary little book. I hope it will find its way into many, many hands: mothers-to-be, midwives, physicians, nurses, educators, doulas and healers of all kinds. Amy Wright Glenn writes about birth and birthing ourselves, as well as our babies. Five stars.”

I love sauces. But so many of them are pure sugar and completely unhealthy. But this one is healthy and full of good fats (like avocado!!)

Honestly… After my first birth it took about 8 months before I felt physically healed. Emotionally… That took much longer. With my second birth it was about 6 or 7 months. Emotionally I was in a gentler place then too.

“..At heart, Leboyer – who trained at the University of Paris School of Medicine and delivered thousands of babies before giving it up to become a childbirth educator and writer – is simply an old-fashioned exponent of doing things “the natural way”. He likens labour to a storm, through which a woman must sail her boat. “She has to remain the captain of her ship – it’s that straightforward,” he says. And he’s hopelessly romantic about it all: childbirth, he maintains, is “a woman’s secret garden … it’s the moment when a maiden dies and a mature woman is born”… <3 Frédérick Leboyer GentleBirth
