My amazing Mama, ignored being 'overdue,' and knew her baby would come when he was ready. This morning, she birthed her beautiful boy, like the true warrior she is. One super proud Doula.💜 #doulaoffcall #doulasupport #birthingwarriors #duedatesareoverrated #mamaknowsbest #allthelove
This one was a right monkey, for his Pops, while I was out on an early morning soup run, for a Mama! Look at the butter wouldn't melt face. 😍🙈 #windup #butterwouldntmelt #fourmonthsold #tinymonster #strongopinions #poorpops #doulaoncall #doulalife
Birthing outcomes are more positive with continuous support. 🌟34% decrease in negative birth experiences
🌟28% decrease in cesarean 🌟31% decrease in the use of Pitocin (Evidence Based Birth)
... the research speaks volumes.
HIRE A DOULA! 💜

Uterine rupture isn't exclusive to VBAC and is actually very rare. Also, all research provided by the RCOG, which shows a 0.5% chance on rupture after 1 cesarean(2015), has been concluded from hospital births, only, and doesn't detail any interventions (inductions increase rupture 2-3 fold for a VBAC-RCOG) which could have impacted on the chance of rupture. This figure was countered by the Oxford University Literature Review, who found the figure to be 0.2%, but the headline was kept at 0.5.
The research we have, also doesn't differentiate between scar separation and true rupture. Obviously, very different. 
Your birth, is your choice, but be informed! 💜

#Repost @thevbacbook(@repost_via_instant)One of the most common reasons that it is recommended for women to avoid a VBAC is the risk of uterine rupture. This is a RARE complication.  If you have had a cesarean with a low transverse incision, the risk for a uterine rupture during a VBAC attempt is approximately 1%. This risk is even less when labor induction is avoided.  Women need to be EMPOWERED, not scared. .

Procrastination at its best. VBAC researched out.

I'm back! Well nearly. My tiny man has got to three months (WTF?!) and I'm looking at what's happening in the World again.  Any Mamas expecting from March onwards, or looking for any other support, get in touch. Looking forward to being back amongst you beauties again. 
Remember, confident about birth, worried about birth, done it before, never even thought about it, evidence shows, doulas have  well and truly got your birthing back! I friggin' love a good study- check it out https://evidencebasedbirth.com/the-evidence-for-doulas/ 💜

Windy, annoyed baby remedied by the Oscha. Thankful to the sling magic. ...
Research shows, carrying babies can make them less fussy. Also, you get free hands for more cake! 💙🍰

The beauty of this @duvet_days illustration works towards making me proud of my C-sec scar, which was as a a result of an emergency situation caused by disempowerment and coercion. 
Under a tree, by a river or in theatre with all the tech, your birth is your choice. Big love to all the c-sec birthing warriors- those who chose and those who didn't. 💜
