“If a father spends 30 minutes skin to skin with his baby on the first day of life, it rewires his brain for parenting." Nils Bergman Birth is brought about by a series of hormonal changes in mothers culminating (hopefully) in a massive surge of oxytocin (the hormone of bonding and love - amongst other things) when our babies are placed on our bodies immediately after they're born. Skin to skin alters the hormonal state of our partners too. Oxytocin hopefully causes both parents to fall, truly, madly, deeply in love with our babies helping us to enjoy parenting...including the challenging (but lovely) monotony of early parenthood and 24/7 needs of a newborn. Partners usually get their first skin to skin time with their babies after mother and baby have had an undisturbed first hour. Did your partner get early skin to skin with your baby and do you feel that it has helped them to feel more connected and confident in their parenting?
This makes me so sad , more and more woman are led to believe induction and intervention like epidurals are OK, and just "routine" when that is not the case at all. Yes, labor is hard work and Yes you have the right to make the best decisions for YOUR birth, and YES you and your baby deserve to have the most positive and empowered birth experience. Be prepared with childbirth classes, hire a doula, choose a birthplace you know will be honoring of birth. ... See MoreSee Less

When my water broke at 36 weeks my doc yelled at me that we had to get the baby out NOW. Of course, I was then given pitocin. Later I found out that in the state of Texas, legally, I can wait 24 hours after my water breaks.

"Women, delve deep into your primal power, beyond the appearances, customs, and religions of this day. Delve into the knowing that you have always had and always will—a knowing that no religion can ever encompass and that no culture can ever define. Delve deep into your belly and the brain that lies there: the primal brain, your original voice, the voice that will never betray you and will always lead you to the truth of love in action, the being of joy, and peace: The Voice of Life itself."

Today I read a post from Gabrielle Bernstein AKA the "Spirit Junkie". I really like her work. She is the new generation of a law of attraction speaker and writer. To me she is like a daughter to Esther Hicks (Abraham Hicks) which has been my inspiration. Anyhow, in her latest blog she talks about the birth of her baby so you know right there she got my attention! She wrote she used hypnobirthing,meditation and affirmations to experience a positive birth experience. This excites me. I truly believe in the magic of childbirth and with knowledge and preparation so many of you can and will experience this most joyful life giving experience. My classes are designed with many techniques such as deep relaxation/meditation,simple breathing techniques and positions to work with your labor... and so much more. I love how my classes have evolved from the lessons I have learned from attending births. I can do more than educate I can give you the wisdom I have acquired Join me for live classes in Trinidad Co . Or purchase my video DVD or download and the Labor Deck Affirmations. Nothing makes me happier than to give you these gifts. With love and joy dee* #spiritjunkie #gabbybernstien #abrahamhicks #birth #pregnancy #smallwonderschildbirth ... See MoreSee Less
