Milk and Motherhood

This is an awesome video that breaks down the water to fat content in a feeding. Your baby does NOT need water during those extra hot days as long as you are feeding on demand!

Heatwave! This is why you don't need to give your breastfed baby extra water (or tea?!) -- trust them! They know what they are doing! Here, you'll see how their feeds and your milk adjusts to what they need, as they need it.

(Edit: You can offer water when you begin to offer solids -- I neglected to mention that!)

Newborn Care workshops are not just for expectant parents. What a great way to prepare your older children for a new little one. Grandparents, even though they have raised little ones, can benefit from learning new techniques and how to use swaddles and other gear.
Newborn Care covers lots of topics, from supporting you new little ones head to feeding to safe sleep.

Of all of the concerns that I had when it comes to breastfeeding my daughter — her latch, my supply, etc. — someone seeing my boob was the least of them. But not everyone has that opinion. Just recently, Idaho and Utah legalized breastfeeding in…

Special Report: Don't Suffer in Silence

Postpartum Depression is Real and it isn’t talked about very much and people don’t really understand how it can take over so quickly if it’s not being taken care of. As a birth worker, this is a conversation I have with my clients often and explain what it looks like, what it can develop into if not treated and what that can mean for families. PPD knows no boundaries when it comes to economic status, ethnicity, religion or other. Please reach out for help, talk to someone!
This is great resource: http://www.postpartumva.org/get-help/
Also, you can talk to your doctor.

Ditch the checklist and have deeper, more fulfilling consults with potential doulas by focusing on organic conversation that builds relational support.

Wait for white!  Delayed cord clamping!

Wait for white! Delayed cord clamping!

THE PLACENTA HOLDS ONE THIRD

The baby and her placenta is called the Feto-Placental Unit, and blood circulates within that unit while she is growing in the womb. In the middle of your pregnancy, because the placenta is almost as big as the baby, blood is equally distributed between the two. Gradually, the baby gets bigger than the placenta, so that by the end of the pregnancy, the baby's body holds two thirds of her blood, and the placenta holds one third.

On the onset of birth, a powerful surge of placental transfusion to the baby begins. If you have seen birth photos, you can tell from an engorged cord that the birth has just occurred. Most of the natural transfusion happens within five minutes but not all transfusions are the same. By twenty minutes, most cords are limp and drained.

What happens with practice of immediate cord cutting is that body's oxygen carrying capacity would have significantly diminished.

In a grown-up body, we have a name for this kind of condition. A loss of thirty to forty percent of your total blood volume is a called a Class 3 Hemorrhagic Shock. It is an emergency, with the risk of damaging tissues, organs and brain cells for the lack of this vital oxygen. The treatment for this is a blood transfusion.
