We could all learn something from this. ❤️

Watch this powerful video of a dad staying calm and patient during his toddler's tantrum.

In a follow-up video, dad Joel Mitchell provides some backstory about the video he captured: "That's not a normal fit for her. You could see it had been kind of building for about two weeks and she just hadn't had the right moment, either she wasn't ready to go for it or we just weren't available to hold space for it. I'm not that patient all of the time but when I saw that she was going to need me to be, I switched into that mode."

💉💉Water Injections??💉💉
.
Have you heard of sterile water injections?
💦
They’re a quick, side effect free, and painless (well, at least after the first few seconds) form of pain relief during labor.
💦
They are easy for one person to administer, though having two people do the injections simultaneously as shown is faster. Sterile water injections provide a powerful effect lasting from 45-90 minutes, and may be repeated during labor.

💦
As you can see here, the sterile water injections are applied around the Rhombus of Michaelis, as that tends to be where many birthing people feel their labor. Sterile water, rather than saline, is used because it is perceived by the body as an irritant.

💦
The injections work in a similar way to a TENS unit or applying a hot pack — by irritating the skin, our body shuts down pain receptors in the area (gate control theory). 💁🏽‍♀️ Did you use sterile water injections in labor? Would you?

What do stay-at-home moms do all day?

So my boys are grown now and I clearly remember what life was like back in the day of being a stay a home mom. Sure it wasn't easy and I did my share of complaining but looking back I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.

Laundry. We are literally always doing laundry.

Stages of Baby Development From Conception to Birth

Amazing, fascinating, and beautiful. Just call me a birth junkie.

After an egg is released from an ovary and is fertilized, it travels slowly through the fallopian tube to the uterus. During this time it begins to divide until it has grown to about 100 cells.

General information

My name is Rosemarie DiMare and I am a DONA Certified Birth Doula and Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator. I have been educating and assisting birthing families in Monmouth, Middlesex and surrounding counties in NJ since 1997. I support couples in hospitals as well as those who choose to birth their baby at home with a midwife. When I got pregnant with my second child, my husband and I decide to hire a doula to assist us during my labor. The experience was so amazing. After seeing first hand the benefits of continuous emotional and physical support throughout my long and beautiful labor, I knew I was being called into this profession. Over the years, Mother to Mother has expanded its service to not only specialize in supporting families during birth, but to educate them about healthy safe birth practices and to help them to develop confidence in themselves and the birth process. I am involved with (I-CAN), International Cesarean Awareness Network. My specialty is counseling, educating, and supporting women who desire a vaginal birth after prior cesarean. I am also trained as a Hypnobirthing Doula and have had many years experince working with Hypnobirthing couples. Mother to Mother has been known for its “Personalized Professional Care.” Time spent prenatally with my birthing couples has enabled me to develop a special bond with them prior to labor. This has helped the birthing mother feel a sense of peace and safety which allows her to be more relaxed both physically and mentally. My families are pleased knowing they have a “Special Woman” trained to be with them throughout labor. My job is not to take the place of the partner, but to make the partner feel less pressured so he can tend to the birthing mother without feeling like he has to perform. When I am not teaching or assisting at births, I enjoy vacationing, taking walks along the beach with my husband John and spending time with my sons John and Nicholas. When I find time alone, I enjoy nothing more than curling up on the couch with a good book and a delicious cup of coffee. In the fall of 2015 I received a recognition award from the American College of Nurse Midwives for my work and dedication to birthing mothers. As I sit and reflect back over my years as a doula and childbirth educator, I feel totally blessed to be in this profession and look forward to many more years preparing and guiding families through the amazing journey of childbirth. Rosemarie

A beautiful baby girl has graced our world. Mama worked so hard and did an amazing job bringing her daughter in the world. Dad wasn’t so bad himself I must say. Thanks to the wonderful nurses and doctors at RWJ who made it all possible.
Almost 14 years ago you helped me bring this beautiful boy into the world.
