If you’ve had very heavy periods and seen an OB-GYN for it you may have been offered the Pill. Did you know that low functioning thyroid can cause very heavy periods? It’s true! So can high estrogen. Your period sends messages about what’s happening in your body, maybe we could explore what your period is saying before shutting it up with birth control! 😃🙊

When I remember, I try to tell clients that a land birth may be better for the baby’s microbiome than a water birth. I think someone (maybe me? 🤔) needs to swab a few babies after water birth and land births and see if water babies’ bacteria are as diverse and numerous as land babes! It makes sense that water would immediately wash some of those bacteria away, right? Photo by @austinbirthphotos

At birth, many midwives use a Chinese herb for hemorrhage called Yunnan Bai Yao. It's dissolved in water and taken orally. I use this if a mom is bleeding more than I'd like to see but its happening slowly, over time. If someone has a torrential bleed I go straight for the drugs but I love being able to manage it with herbs when possible! photo by @monetnicolebirths

Tomorrow the @birthkweens 👸🏻👸🏻are hosting a birth story. Everyone loves a good birth story right?

A kind reminder to anyone who is giving birth soon: it's a mostly involuntary process so if labor seems daunting just remember its not like a test you have to study for, your body will do it for you. You just have to let it!! Photo by @southwales_birthphotographer

I really like the idea that a baby's birth or at least something about it filled a need for the baby or gave the parents an opportunity to face fears or address old patterns because sometimes there's just no other explanation for why they come when and how they do! What has your experience been?? Photo by @emumpiscardeolhos
IT WON’T HAPPEN TO ME (•)(•) Let’s level for a minute. Breast cancer is so common, it seems it has touched most people’s lives directly and yet many of us still think “that won’t happen to me”. This week and the next the @birthkweens episodes are dedicated to breast cancer: early detection, prevention and treatment options. I know many women under 40 who have battled breast cancer (all whom found it themselves). Thinking this is an older woman’s disease is a fallacy and I’d love everyone to hear one woman’s story this week (and start doing your self breast exams!) The Most shocking thing I learned in this series is how many women who have breast fed get breast cancer. Nursing/breastfeeding/chest feeding has been long touted to reduce the risk of breast cancer but it clearly doesn’t eliminate it. Tune into these next two weeks of episodes 💕💕Love this photo by @juliejohnsonphoto

I heard about this whilst pregnant about a year ago and am glad I have found this to share, in case you didn't know how physically connected to your grandmother you are too..👵
Even though I never knew my biological grandmother, I appreciate the connection through which she carried us into life..💗
The grandmother I did know, was my best friend for many of those crucial years of becoming an adult and facing all of its challenges..😌
Those still fortunate enough to have grannies around.. send them a message, tell them you love them, hug them big time..🤗
And so, I only look forward to being proud of my daughter being able to have such privileges too..💝
Last week was chock full of births and this bright eyed babe was part of it all. What a good communicator she was! She told mom she wasn’t going to move and come out vaginally despite all the hard work she and dad were putting in and @katiherridge heard her loud and clear. We had a great reception at the hospital and a very sweet birth in the OR. Welcome to baby Atlas! And congrats to Kati, Leo and Ocean 💕💕 I’m so impressed by your hard work and flexibility and so happy you got your girl! 😘🌹
We had a movie night in the living room and after the movie was over I found them like this... Guess they are sleeping on the couch tonight because they are just too darn precious to wake up💕 #OhMyOvaries
