Mum and son in perfect bliss, skin to skin 😍

Most people i teach, before i even meet them, have already decided they would like a water birth. water births have many benefits, but for many the top one is that it can be a very powerful pain relief. .
if you’re planning a hospital water birth remember to check how many pools are available. if the rooms are full you will be taken to a room without a pool. .
if a pool is not available for you there are other ways that you can still get the benefits of water: 🌟bath - although not as big as a birthing pool, so you don’t have the benefit of moving easily, all the other benefits of a pool are available in the bath. some hospital rooms will have a bath available to you, and most people have baths in their house. if you’ve read my birth story, you’ll also know it’s possible to give birth in the bath! 🌟shower - you won’t have the benefit of bouyancy like in a pool, but the hot water will still act as an effective pain relief 🌟 hot water bottle - most women are aware of the benefits of hot water bottles as pain relief from period cramps. i used one post birth for the after birth pains (so consider packing one in your bag). they’re also mobile meaning you can use them everywhere, including the car journey to the hospital. 📷 : @cibelepiovesanfotografia

“i reach down to receive you with gentle loving hands .... a moment of stillness and awe ✨✨✨this was the moment i birthed my baby ✨✨✨💛
there is no strength so powerful, no beauty so expansive as a birthing woman. in this moment i was all woman, a goddess, welcoming this life force, opening to my power. far out i love to relive this moment. impossible to put into words the feeling...breathing deep and opening to the immense energy making love to me. smiling through it, as i say to myself ‘i am getting huge’ ~ visualising my yoni opening like a flower. intense pressure as the love sweeps through every cell of my body, opening to my fullest, my whole being expanding. staying centred, trusting fully, all is well. squeezing...relaxing....a long pause, releasing the yoni as my baby’s head crowns and the widest expanse of head is exposed. a few moments later, his big round head appears into the light of the world with a tiny face underneath, still underwater. squeeze...relaxing...release. soon without any help, at the next rush his shoulders and arms are born, “he’s half in and half out!” i announce dreamily! 😍 another long pause, fully present, savouring this feeling, then in the next instant my b**e slips into the world into soothing water. i gently receive him into my soft loving hands. a moment of stillness and awe, we all look and fill our hearts. i keep you there underwater for 10 seconds or so as you gently uncurl. there you are my sweet sweet baby! i scoop you up to my heart. i am consumed by love, in that one second of endless time, i know the miracle of what this child and i have done is the most beautiful, effortless harmony of spirit. he has birthed himself, my son.” ❤️

He was here. he was, despite the dramatic events, fine. i was fine. we made it.
my thoughts afterwards were mere affirmations, on repeat. the overwhelming bliss i had expected didn’t show itself directly. i was just happy we both were alive and the gratitude towards peder shook my core. without him, i would’ve lost my mind. now all we three needed was time to heal and rest. together. and suddenly i just knew it was time to start something new and trust the magic of new beginnings.

Omg this is so precious 😍
"i’m obsessed with this beautiful moment of baby reaching for her mama" @empoweredbirthproject
@shedoesnteveneatcarbs 😭😍 mama morgan shares:
__
“i had a scheduled c-section with my second child after an emergency c-section with my first. everyone in the room helped me have the birth i was hoping for. i was able to watch my daughter be born. it was such a magical and beautiful experience.”
__
this is a wonderful example of “gentle cesarean” aka “family centered cesarean” aka respecting the birthing persons wishes for what makes them feel safe and supported and empowered, which should be standard practice at every birth.

Did you know that the brain literally changes during pregnancy? so, it’s true when they say how much motherhood changes you.
i like to think the difference isn’t only a change in the brain, but a change in the heart as well.
@albuquerque_birth_photographer captured this photo of me in labor, meditating with my labyrinth. i was in the thick of it here, yet this may have been the most peaceful time in my birth.
i’m not sure if pre-labor jaelan would have been able to deal if she knew she’d have a placental abruption, followed by 46 hours of labor after a hospital transfer. but, labor-jaelan knew what to do. the body and mind are so intertwined, and there’s never a time that this is more evident than during the transformation of birth. .

The battle continued. i remember only fractions of his birth, but i remember wishing for more power, more strength. i know i’d wanted to face my contractions with energy, now i faced them with fear and self doubt. instead of helping the process along, i shrieked “no” and did exactly the opposite. i was so tired, going on for more than 50 hours, i thought i’d die. but when they told me that “he has to come out now, he’s not doing well!” with that tone it their voices, it was like everything ceased to matter. i grasped that last strain of power within me. and there was life. ruben entered this world after 54 hours. making me a mother, and us parents.
but i was stuck in work-mode, worriedly commenting that he didn’t have satisfactory activity on the apgar scale.
the midwives handled that absolutely brilliantly i remember, by allowing me to make a smooth transition from nicu-nurse to mother, talking to me like they would’ve if i’d assisted in my profession. every answer sank in, landed and built a bridge between past and present. from profession to motherhood. to be continued.. #birthisbeautiful #birthfemmes #birth #radiantruben #midwifery #förlossning #förlossningsfotografi #förlossningsfotografering #förstföderska #mothertobe #inlabour #förlossningsarbete #barnmorskeri #förlossningsberättelse #förlossningen #förlossningsstöd #förlossningsfoto #givingbirth
