Did you know that the amniotic sac is actually comprised of two layers? they’re called the amnion and the chorion and they come together seamlessly to form one strong, cozy little bubble for your baby. inside of that bubble is all of your amniotic fluid and the fetal side of the placenta (aka - the tree of life, as seen in this☝🏼amazing photo). download episode 95 tomorrow (aug 1) to hear lots more about this amazing o***n and how it works with your body to nourish and grow your baby! 📸: @danniellehale.thebirthlens

The standing release is done with a very light touch to release the fascia around the pelvis and the pelvic and respiratory diaphragms. when effective, this may improve fetal positioning, pelvic alignment, and even reduce heartburn and snoring.⁣

I've screamed this before and i'll do it again... you cannot fail at childbirth!!! your birth is incomparable to anyone elses, so just because one mum has done it one way it does not mean you can't opt for something very different and still have a positive birth.
trust in yourself you can do it, stay in your own lane and 🖕those who say otherwise to you. nobody elses birth story is yours and vice versa. 😘xxx

Open knee-chest⁣⁣
⁣⁣
would you like to help the labor start over and go smoother? the open-knee-chest helps back the baby out of the pelvic brim and start again in a better position.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
in pregnancy? open-knee-chest is only for breech babies.⁣⁣
in labor? open-knee-chest is for babies not coming into the pelvis flexed and in good position.⁣⁣
when a head-down baby is still floating (-4 or -3 station) doing this correctly risks turning baby to the breech position.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
when not to do an open-knee-chest:⁣⁣
1) don’t do this when the head down baby is not engaged and floating!⁣⁣
2) don’t do this or any other inversions for women at risk of stroke, who have high blood pressure which warrants medical supervision.⁣⁣

Birth balls⁣

in pregnancy, use a birth ball to sit on instead of a chair. trade the chair for a birth ball at the computer, at the table and even while watching tv.⁣

why? the birth ball comforts and strengthens your lower back. your pelvis is better supported and symmetrical. the pelvis opens a bit, maybe not as much as squatting, but certainly without the effort of squatting (squatting is good preparation, too). you are able to sit upright comfortably after only a few tries with the ball. sitting upright helps the abdomen be a hammock for the baby and encourages the baby to settle in an anterior position when the mother’s ligaments and fascia are balanced and she hasn’t waited too long. start before pregnancy, if you can, but start when you can.⁣

how? sit so that your feet are flat and apart so that your feet and the center of the ball make a tripod when you sit down on it. the ball should be firm and big enough so that your hips are equal or higher than your knees.⁣

use a birth ball to help you do a gentle backbend to open your upper chest and shoulders. you might get a gentle adjustment or spinal alignment.⁣⁣

If you’re a texan mom, there are certain things you just know. if you’re about to have a baby girl, you’re probably already picking out her homecoming mum. or, if you’re having a baby boy, you may already be calling the a&m scouts (or ut, we don’t judge!)⠀

texan moms know how to trust their bodies and their intuition. so, grab that pint of bluebell you’ve been craving and trust that your body knows what you and baby need.⠀

but just because you are a strong texas mother, that doesn’t mean you have to travel your motherhood journey alone. having a midwife by your side can be a wonderful way to have the supportive, holistic birth you deserve. at my radiant beginnings, we educate and empower women to make confident birth choices.⠀

we believe birth is a beautiful, natural process and that women have freedom and choices. our role as healthcare providers is to educate and encourage women along their journey towards a radiant beginning.⠀

​from the actual physical miracle of new life developing within to the more subtle but equally as miraculous birth of a new mother (whether this is her first child or her fifth!), our goal is to equip you for the upcoming adventure.⠀

why? inversions can help to create space in the body and encourage baby into a more ideal position for birth. inversions can also help ease the intensity of back labour and pressure. inversions during pregnancy or labour should always be done gently and with care.⁣⁣

Hopefully, we’ve already met at your first few visits, or i’ve already had the pleasure of delivering your baby. if not, nice to meet you! as your midwife, i will be with you for many months through a beautiful journey. it’s important we get to know each other!⠀

i would like to tell you my story and how i got started as a midwife.⠀

i was called to this path in 2008. i have always felt a call to work with pregnant women/babies but when my husband and i began our own family quite early i felt my dream was to become only that, a dream. in the meantime i completed my undergraduate business degree from houston baptist university and set on to work (without passion) in the corporate world. i had 3 children at this point, all induced (following due dates) and all with epidurals.⠀

my father was an md and i had never considered anything different…that is until a very dear friend of mine had a complication from an epidural. that was to be the small stone that would begin rolling toward the new path.⠀

i’m excited to share the rest of my journey with you in my next post. make sure to follow us, if you haven’t already, and turn on notifications so you never miss a post!⠀

In this series, i wanted to reach through the screen and say hello! i am melissa bates, cpm. as your midwife, i will be with you for many months through a beautiful journey. it’s important we get to know each other! if you haven’t read my last post, make sure to do so now!⠀

i’m excited to share my story with you.⠀

so, after my first birth i knew i had been lucky and that i did not want an epidural in the future. i also knew i did not want to be induced again! i had spoken with so many people who had labor start on its own and did not endure the magnitude of labor that those who are induced typically experience.⠀

i found myself asking “how can i avoid being induced and the allure of an epidural?” the answer, for me, was not to be in a hospital for my next delivery! along the way i was led to research midwifery and i found so much more than an answer for the present question; i also found a calling.⠀

the individualized care throughout the prenatal, birth and postpartum cycle were exactly what i saw myself doing!⠀

how did i get to where i am today? stay tuned for my next post! make sure to follow us, if you haven’t already, and turn on notifications so you never miss a post!⠀

{ free masterclass }

last week, i shared about why it’s so important to eat and drink during labor to keep your body fueled and able to sustain enough energy to last throughout labor.

that’s a very common place i see women lose control in their birth experiences. unfortunately, up to 80% of people don’t understand that they have the right to eat and drink during labor even if hospital policy isn’t representative of the latest research.

i’m going live on december 18 to share the other places in labor that i often witness birthing people lose control. ‘losing control’ doesn’t necessarily look like a screaming, crying mess. actually, i’m not talking about that at all.

i’m talking about staying in control of the choices that are made meaning you’re making choices for you not someone else forcing choices upon you. this is called medical autonomy.

medical autonomy is defined as: the right of patients to make decisions about their medical care without their health care provider trying to influence the decision.

i absolutely adore many of the providers i’ve been able to work with and i realized that it’s because they understand shared decision making so well. they literally present choices and are happy to support their patient in whatever they choose. they constantly share what their doing and ask consent. it’s so refreshing and truly highlights why doctors are so incredibly influential on your birth experience.

join me on december 18th at 2pm est to learn how you can use medical autonomy and shared decision making to stay in control of your labor experience from start to finish. link in bio to reserve your seat!

This week i’ve been experiencing something that has never happened to me before...loss of my voice due to colds that have been affecting just about everyone around. it’s an odd feeling, not speaking what i’m thinking or joining in conversations, or even trying to avoid talking to people! .
it’s odd because not saying anything often means others assume you don’t have an opinion, or anything to contribute, and therefore assume your indifference. .
it made me think about how we often feel in the hospitals while in labor, and the options that we have, but maybe don’t have the will in the moment to interject our personal stance on things. .
when we don’t deliberately speak up on what’s important to us, the decision gets made for us. .
the last couple births i’ve attended have made it abundantly clear to me that just simply reminding clients to decide on what’s important to them is not enough. when it’s a choice that exceeds the standard practices, making sure clients are equipped with evidence-based information, and the words to communicate to their caregivers is essential. .
they can inform me ahead of time so i can remind them in the moment, have a list of preferences to bring to the hospital, and remember there are always alternatives, and consent is always required. .

14th december 2019 birth empowered advent ❤️❄️ we are a bit late with our advent post today as we have been busy busy bringing birth empowered to a lovely local christmas fayre all day.
but here it is, and it needs very little explanation really.
communication is key! appropriate, understandable information in a format that you can process.
sometimes we don’t get that right, but that is not an good enough excuse, so if you don’t get that then please please say so (communication is a 2 way thing after all) the onus is not on you to understand but on the health care professional to communicate information in a way that you can understand.

Baby massage!

this is the amazing practice of gentle massage over babies body and is a beautiful ritual before bed with a lovely carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil and a gentle and soothing 100% pure essential oil like the doterra lavender or frankincense.

every night since our babies were born and still today with our toddlers we have practiced massage with the idea that consistent touch will support relationship, bond, trust, self assurance, wellness and sleep of our children.

i know that this consistent approach has definitely helped.

all our kids are affectionate because we have taken the time to show them how important it is to be nurtured.

my eldest often says to me and my husband “when can we give you a massage?” which is so cute because she just wants to show us her love and this is such a beautiful quality.

baby massage is such a powerful way to connect with your children and to take the time to spend with them. they are more relaxed and calmer before bed and often fall asleep.

the addition of a drop of doterra essential oils helps to calm my kids ready for sleep as well as support their skin.

we love the lavender, frankincense, myrrh, roman camomile, ylang ylang, balance blend, cedarwood, and copaiba for massage.

it’s something very special you can do with your children and everyone benefits.

who else loves baby massage and thinks it’s a beautiful practice and ritual between you and your baby/children? ✨✨✨

Inversions 🙌🏻 how can something that seems so counterintuitive be so incredibly helpful?! forward leaning inversions during labour can help with allowing space for baby to rotate into an optimal position, ease back pain, and release tension of the uterine ligaments that can sometimes inhibit baby's journey through the birth path.
personally, i found inversions a great source of comfort during my pregnancy and posterior labour. the release of pressure as baby worked to rotate was so welcome during surges.

Preconception care focuses on things you can do before pregnancy to increase the chances of a healthy mother and healthy baby. visit ratan hospital for women and children before trying for a baby for best preconception counseling and care.

admittedly a little late in the day, but here it is! i think there is little more to say concerning this statement really...

following on from today's election results i can't help but feel worried/fearful/frustrated/angry about what maternity care will hold for birthing people over the next few years.
.

this as well as the release of the latest mbbrace report shows us that now more than ever we need to stand together for what is right in maternity care...

The forward leaning inversion can also be highly beneficial to incorporate into your third trimester routines to prepare for birth. contact me for more information or to schedule a third trimester consultation. #repost @spinningbabies

Do you know your b**e will help you bring him earthside. you do it together, each working alongside the other, following those primal instincts deep inside, guiding each step in your birth. such good info here so we had to repost from @dr.alyssa.shepherd “recently i saw a cartoon posted that was humorous, but also not - about how hard other animals work to be born, and how lazy human babies are in making mom do all the hard work and push. ⠀

after an initial smile, i started to reflect on how comics like this espouse what we believe about babies and how we view them - that we don't think of them as active participants in the birth process, having an all-encompassing (physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual experience). and this view allows us to diminish the effect of birth, both short and long-term, with relation to babies. ⠀

when nature is allowed to proceed without interference, human babies complete a series of maneuvers - twists, and turns, and actively kick to help themselves be born! ⠀

how much would our birthing practices change if we recognized the wisdom, sentience and intelligence of babies? ⠀

what birthing practices would we keep, and what would we relegate to history textbooks?” #charlestonsc #educateyourself #womeninspiringwomen #holisticpregnancy #birtheducation #informeddecisions #reclaimbirth #reclaimlabor #reclaimourbodies #maternitycare #maternalhealth #maternalmortality #intentionalbirth #birthinpower #thexchangecharleston

E dá pra fazer inversão inclinada pra frente em trabalho de parto? ô se dá! a iif trabalha com o ligamento útero-sacro, que desempenha papel importante no expulsivo e no espaço disponível no segmento inferior e região do colo do útero. há inclusive adaptações possíveis para quem nunca fez ou tem restrição de mobilidade ou uma peridural, usando a cama ppp, que facilitam a posição durante o trabalho de parto.
.
na última oficina, em salvador, tivemos um relato de sucesso com iif da @danny.doula. quando tudo parecia perdido, foi feita uma iif e o bebê estava nos braços doze minutos depois.
.
acredite, é possível e pode mudar a história de alguns partos!

If all is quiet and well (doula on call), i will be attending the spinning babies workshop tomorrow. 💖
here’s some of the exercises they train you to do:
posted @withrepost@spinningbabies psoas muscle release⁣⁣
⁣⁣
what: two great psoas muscles come down from the spine from beneath the level of the ribs and respiratory diaphragm to the lower lumbar spine and each one angles forward over the pelvis, draping over the leg socket and attaching to the lesser trochanter.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
why: a short psoas is associated with tightness in breath, stomach upsets. and constipation, fetal engagement and descent.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
contraindications: gentle stretch seems widely ok. liz koch of core awareness™ recommends no massage of the psoas directly. fascia therapy and self-care are preferred⁣⁣
⁣⁣
when: throughout pregnancy and appropriate when in labor.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
how long: at least 3 minutes and longer if the helper’s arms remain comfortable supporting you.⁣

I've been told lately that i'm an inspiration for working out while pregnant. ⠀
and while i'm so incredibly happy to inspire others, i truly hope that the inspiration goes beyond just watching. ⠀
that i'm inspiring you to actually do something good for yourself too. ⠀
that even if you're not pregnant, that you see this as your opportunity to say yes to yourself. ⠀
to put the excuses and self-doubt away and just give it a try. ⠀
what have you really got to lose?⠀

Changes to your body during pregnancy... at 10 weeks pregnant you may find your clothes are getting tighter around your waist and breasts.

your abdomen ( tummy )may look bigger, but at this stage it’s often due to changes in your b***l ( rather than your u****s getting bigger ). it is nothing to worry about. your b***l habits do change during pregnancy.

your u****s is now about the size of an orange and is still hidden within your pelvis for now.

I feel like i have woken up to a bomb going off in my tele. there's so much worry ahead for the future of education and healthcare, to name just a couple of things falling to it's knees in times to come. 💔
so who do you turn to at these times?
each other.
there are so many good people out there. @mrdanwalker is my new hero after he surprised an @age_uk volunteer with a christmas tree and choir after experiencing loneliness for so long. google it if you haven't seen it; i can guarantee it will restore your faith in humanity as we face a bleak state of affairs this morning!

M is for managed third stage ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
it is very important to keep the mood in the room the same even after your baby is born. it’s not over until your placenta is born, this is the third stage of labour.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
it’s a good idea to have your preferences around this added to your birth plan. natural third stage is when you simply wait for your body to release the placenta. managed third stage is done by injecting an artificial hormone to contract the u****s and release the placenta. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
in certain circumstances a managed third stage may be necessary but if not then its best to let nature take its course. the body knows what to do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
with a managed third stage, the cord is often clamped within 30 seconds of the birth. again, sometimes this is necessary but if it is not then delaying cord clamping has huge benefits to your baby. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✂️ baby receives full quota of stem cells and we are becoming more aware of the amazing properties of stem cells in the cord blood⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✂️ it is estimated that almost half of the full amount of blood passes through the cord to the baby before the cord stops pulsating ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
a few moments after your baby is born your body produces its highest peak of oxytocin. if you interfere with this process by introducing a synthetic hormone (managed third stage), your body’s own production of oxytocin will be reduced which can impact breastfeeding. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
after your placenta is born, make sure it is checked and get confirmation that it is fully intact and there is no retained placenta. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
speak to your midwife. explain that you would like a natural third stage unless of course there is a clinical reason for not being able to. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
hot tip....lying on a bed doesn’t help the placenta being born so sit over a bed pan on the toilet and gravity will help. .

La contención, el apoyo y vínculo entre la matrona y la mujer gestante es una sutil mirada, una caricia, la empatía de acompañar el dolor, las técnicas del rebozo no vienen a generar más intervenciones de las cuales la obstetricia está llena, satisfacer las necesidades maternas basado en cuidados.
libre movimiento, pujo espontáneo, bañera o ducha como medidas analgésicas naturales, donde la cascada de intervenciones se debe dejar de realizar de forma rutinaria, el fundamento de todo es brindar mejor calidad asistencial y satisfacción materna, así como el empoderamiento de su transición a la maternidad.

Food humour by @andytherd 🤪😉it takes two to tango as they say, calcium and vitamin d are no exception 🤣
.
.
given the few dietary sources, lack of sun exposure in some parts of the world, and/or covering up due to skin cancer concerns or religious/cultural practices, vitamin d deficiency is surprisingly very common among people. supplementation is required in almost all cases in order to meet the body’s need.
.
.
during pregnancy and breastfeeding, the mothers vitamin d stores are being used during huge growth periods for laying down bone structures for the infant. it is also needed to work with other nutrients such as vitamin a, vitamin k2, calcium, zinc and boron. as a result, being vitamin d deficient during pregnancy and breastfeeding, will dramatically affect not only yours, but also your child’s health in the long term. check out the blog (link in bio) for some reasons why you need to take enough vitamin d during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

One year ago today i witnessed a miracle💫. i was part of a multidisciplinary team that saved a baby and mommy who had a very dangerous condition. it has been the most memorable delivery of my career. through many months of inpatient care, that patient became a friend, her family became part of my life, and i was blessed to have that little tiny baby named after me. happy birthday natalia hope- you and your mommy @lilysellsparkland will forever hold a very special place in my heart💞. #jacksonresidnet #miraclesmadedaily @jacksonhealth #patientswhobecomefriends #dre #miamiobgyn #obgyn #obstetricsandgynecology #gynecology #obstetrics #womenshealth #miamiwomen #womenswellness #maternitycare #pregnancy #papsmear #contraception #mammogram #ultrasound #laboranddelivery #mamadoctor #specialdelivery #lovemypatients #lovewhatido

You may not be able to recall every detail of your birth story as the years go on, but you will always remember how you felt and how you were cared for 🖤 .

birth rights are human rights.
.
.
here is another quote from birthrights.org.uk "human rights require public bodies to treat you with dignity and respect, consult you about decisions and respect your choices.
human rights law gives pregnant women the right to receive maternity care, to make their own choices about their care and to be given standards of care that respect their dignity and autonomy as human beings."
.
.
the birthrights website contains a plethora of information about your rights in relation to maternity care. if you want to find out more, visit their website www.birthrights.org.uk

"i’m still on a high from all the information i learned yesterday at the spinning babies® workshop. it was incredible, and i’m so thankful to add this knowledge to my toolkit.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
what was really incredible about the workshop was the interdisciplinary training that took place. there were midwives, doulas, labor and delivery nurses, chiropractors, a pelvic floor physical therapist, childbirth educators. how amazing to see all these different areas of birth work come together in a shared space to learn skills to better serve our clients.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣
we can be the change together."⁣⁣⁣
