Come meet the Embrace doulas! I'm so excited to be a part of this new birthing option in RVA!
So honored and excited to work with all these women and the Embrace Team to support growing families in Richmond! #embracebirthRVA #birthcenter #doulas
I know Mothers Day has past but this rings so true. Had to share!
"Many women say that they understand why women choose drugs, because labor gets really hard, but that they are glad they went med free. Several studies have supported this too. Women who use no pain medication reported the most satisfaction with their birth."
Save the date!
Did you know Richmond is about to have a Midwife owned/run stand alone birth center!!! Questioning if hospital birth is right for you? Not sure if your ready for a home birth? A birth center may be your answer. Check them out! They have an Open House May 15th! https://m.facebook.com/embracemidwiferyandbirthcare/
I love how accessible and realistic this article is. Great points, especially this.... "hastening the birth of an otherwise healthy baby—even by a couple of days—is never a good idea."
Free class! https://www.facebook.com/events/191587767877367/
Benefits of Skin to skin after birth...the science. http://www.nbci.ca/index.php?option=com_content&id=82:the-importance-of-skin-to-skin-contact-&Itemid=17
"The side-lying position is especially useful in promoting rest and relaxation between pushing contractions. Some research suggests that this is the most effective birthing position for preventing tears."
“We found that a protein within lung surfactant serves as a hormone of labor that signals to the mother’s uterus when the fetal lungs are sufficiently mature to withstand the critical transition to air breathing.”
Happy World Doula Week!
If your baby is in a breech position and you are not offered this option. ASK! If your OB does not perform this technique someone else may be able to. Then, after you have discussed and understand all the risks and benefits make an informed decision as to if this procedure is right for you!
This Wednesday under Hip to Be Round.
Did you have continuous or intermittent monitoring during your birth? Did you know you had a choice? "The evidence against continuous electronic fetal monitoring is so clear that the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force issued a recommendation saying that continuous electronic fetal monitoring should NOT be used in low risk women. Even ACOG has endorsed intermittent auscultation as an “appropriate and safe alternative” to electronic fetal monitoring (ACOG, 2009)." http://evidencebasedbirth.com/evidence-based-fetal-monitoring/
For all you new Mamas out there!
