Our last prenatal class. C-section role play. If it comes to this at least we'll have some good associations with it! Lol. #tminstas #pregnant #pregnancy #delivery #csection #prenatalclass
And that's okay! Your doctor should (hopefully) know what is safe for you when you are pregnant or breastfeeding and there's actually very few medications where you actually need to pump and dump (even fewer where you can't use them as a milk bath). If you have questions on what medications are safe for you to take for both over the counter or prescriptions, visit infantrisk.com to see if you're in the clear and to give yourself a peace of mind! Happy pumping! (Also it doesn't hurt to talk to your doctor ♡) 📸 @right2pump

#corestrength does not come from a million sit ups. Six pack abs also don’t come from sit ups - they generally come from being a certain body fat percentage and some people don’t even have the muscle tone to have six pack abs. Six pack abs don’t necessarily mean you are healthy or strong. True core strength comes from activities that work the whole body. Planks are one of my favorite things to improve functional core strength - which means you will have an easier time with movement and less likely to experience pain. Some tips for planks: 1. Press the ground away from you with your hands so it engages your shoulder muscles without you sinking into your joint. 2. Draw the front of your pelvis up towards your belly button to engage your lower abdominal muscles. This makes sure your low back doesn’t start to sag. 3. Squeeze your legs towards each other to maintain lighten the load on your arms. Start with trying to hold for 30 seconds, and then working to a minute. Remember you don’t need six packs to be strong or happy 😁
Despite the fact that I’m now •ONE• day away from leaving the country and I don’t have a single thing packed 🙈😆 This week and the next feel like a ★·.·´¯`·.·★ 𝓣𝓸𝓽𝓪𝓵 𝓓𝓻𝓮𝓪𝓶 ★·.·´¯`·.·★ Besides Getting to spend freedom Friday 🤸🏼‍♀️ chaperoning this cutie and her friend 👧🏻👧🏻💕 Makes these past midnight... I just started to get my “ish” together moments... So worth it🙌✨ Because I don’t want to miss a blink♥️
Sweet smiles!! 😍
It’s been a tough day for us both, but I’m loving the snuggles now. Maybe #babywearing isn’t so bad. 💙
A little buckling • Cherokee made it through surgery and was carrying FOUR kids! The vet said they weren’t tiny, so that could explain her pregnancy toxemia. Unfortunately three of them were too premature to survive and passed away. 💔 This guy is not out of the woods yet, and neither is mama, but for right now they are stable. Hopefully we can bring them both home tomorrow. 🖤🖤🖤

We’re so lucky to have at least one set of grandparents that live by us so that I can receive cute pics like this on the days that we both work. 🙏🏻 . Today I got to see a c-section and let me tell you...I have a whole new respect for those moms who have them. Liam was delivered using forceps and while I didn’t get to fully see the process, I can imagine it would look as painful as it felt. However, the amount of pulling and tugging that the doctors do to get baby out as fast and safely as they can is amazing. It’s amazing what our bodies can withstand and what our bodies and minds can do to create human life. . I would be lying if I said I didn’t tear up watching it but it was also the only delivery I’ve ever been in the room for other than my own. . At the end of a long day, I’m happy to be home snuggling our not-so-little bundle of joy. 💙 . . . . #csection #emergency #emergencycsection #premie #7weeksearly #rupture #laboranddelivery #pospartum #cna #mom #workingmom #workingmomlife #toddler #forceps #toddlerlife #tiredboy #operatingroom #grandparents #grandmaworehimout #grandpa #pops #bornonhisduedate #respect #loveyourself #wonderwoman
You may have noticed that I've been a bit absent from social media lately... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And the reason for that is simple: I've been working on me. I've been trying to put myself and my family first. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So although I may not be fully sharing about it, I've been eating on-point with the help of the new nutrition program I started; I've been crushing my workouts that I love; I've been drinking tons of water and cutting back on caffeine; I've been drinking my superfoods smoothie; I've been getting more sleep; and I've been reading and listening more. In addition, I've been spending more intentional time with my husband and kids. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I may not be checking off all the boxes in life, but in this season, I'm okay with that. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Seasons #WorkOnMe #PutYourselfFirst #CrushingGoals #MomLife #MomsOfInstagram #MomsOfLittles #MomCommunity #MomBod #MomminAintEasy #GirlMom #BoyMom #ToddlerLife #ToddlerMom #PreschoolMom  #Postpartum #PostpartumFitness #PostCSection #YEG #YEGMoms #CSectionMama #CSection #WifeLife #WivesOfInstagram #WomenInspiringWomen
Posting Day 2 a few hours early but didn’t want to forget to talk about the history of doulas. I’ve included some photos I got from a simple google search “labor support throughout history”. Doulas have been used since ancient Greece although the term was never used until 1969 when Dana Raphael derived the word from modern greek δούλα (DOO- luh), meaning ‘servant- woman’ when conducting a study on birth outcomes. Doulas have always served the purpose of support, never being involved in medical decisions or diagnosis. A doula’s job consists of constant ‘mothering’ towards the mother throughout labor, birth, and postpartum. This can include empowering the mother to advocate for herself, physical support in the form of massage, acupressure, and touch and also emotional support with affirmations and positive coaching. As birth has become increasingly medicalized, more women than ever need this support. Many studies have shown that women who receive continuous support are more likely to have positive birth outcomes.

Some babies can learn simple signs as young as 6 months. But your baby may not have the hand control to be able to sign back to you until she's 8 or 9 months old. You can start teaching signs to your baby when you think she's ready – even if she can't sign back yet. Here are a few simple signs to start with!

Day 12 of 80 is done!! 🤪🥵 Sweaty selfies for days!
7 months difference! 🙌 The one thing I have noticed this time around is I'm finding it much much HARDER to lose the weight. It's coming off, just slowly 💪 I'm seeing more results in my measurements than the scales. I have gone from a size 20 after Ashton to a size 16. Slow and steady wins the race! 🍑💪 #Weightloss #WeightlossCommunity #WeightlossMotivation #LowCarb #Keto #KetoFamily #LowCarbFamily #KetoSupport #LowCarbSupport #FatToFit #Fitness #PlusSizeFitness #Motivation #Goals #PostPartrumJourney #CSection #Exercise #Love #PostCSection #PostCSectionJourney #PostCSectionBody #PostCSectionFitness #CSectionMama #Walk #Jogging #PostPartrumBody
RSV is a virus that infects the respiratory tract of most children before their second birthday. RSV may not be severe when it first starts. However, it can become more severe a few days into the illness. Early symptoms of RSV may include: Runny nose, decrease in appetite, cough-which may progress to wheezing. In very young infants (less than 6 months old), the only symptoms of RSV infection may be: Irritability, decreased activity, decreased appetite, apnea (pauses while breathing). Fever may not always occur with RSV infections. • • • What to do to avoid RSV? * Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, and help young children do the same. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Washing your hands will help protect you from germs. * Keep your hands off your face * Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Germs spread this way. * Avoid close contact with sick people * Avoid close contact, such as kissing, and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who have cold-like symptoms. * Cover your coughs and sneezes * Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your upper shirt sleeve when coughing or sneezing. Throw the tissue in the trash afterward. * Clean and disinfect surfaces * Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that people frequently touch, such as toys and doorknobs. When people infected with RSV touch surfaces and objects, they can leave behind germs. Also, when they cough or sneeze, droplets containing germs can land on surfaces and objects. * Stay home when you are sick * If possible, stay home from work, school, and public areas when you are sick. This will help protect others from catching your illness. Credit: CDC.gov

Heart b r e a k 💔 One of our pregnant does developed pregnancy toxemia, an often fatal condition. Basically her babies are sucking her dry, taking all of her nutrition and energy and she’s unable to replenish herself causing a toxic acid state. When I called my vet this morning with my concerns regarding her behavior, she immediately said “get her to UC Davis right now.” So I loaded her up, called the ER on my way to let them know I was coming in with an emergency, and we made the hour drive. UC Davis was amazing! They were waiting for me with a cart ready to roll Cherokee inside, they were so caring, they explained each step and didn’t roll their eyes when I cried over bad news followed by bad news. . To make a long story short, she was so toxic they were surprised she was still alive. My options were to euthanize her {and the babies} or have them do a c-section, but we will likely still lose all of the babies since they may be too premature...as we don’t know her actual breeding date. The only way to save Cherokee is to get the babies out. . They gave her IV fluids and medications to buffer the high blood acid over the course of a few hours, but no change. Time is of the essence, and she is currently having a c-section as I type this. . Is it completely crazy to have a goat c-section? I asked myself this hundreds of times today, it feels crazy, but she has a purpose here. She’s my best milker, we drink the milk, I make soaps from her milk to help pay farm expenses, and she produces babies that we sell to add to the farm budget. Even though it’s emotional, there is a business side to it. . Before I decided which choice to make I confirmed with the vet that she could be bred again with success...after she is fully recovered of course, for next year. It is likely she will go on to have normal pregnancies and deliveries in the future. . {continued in comments⬇️}
It’s been a whole month since Eliza’s womb service expired! On February 22, at 38 weeks and 4 days, I began the induction process to kick start labour because I had high blood pressure and baby was measuring small. That weekend would end up being the scariest, happiest, most rewarding weekend of my life! I was nervous most of the weekend, but I found strength in my body and in my mind that I didn’t know I had. It’s amazing what women go through when we become mothers! I was able to deliver a happy, healthy baby via Caesarean section and have been healing well from surgery. This month has been a whirlwind and I’ve been in survival mode most of the time. It truly takes a village to raise a child (and a mother!) and I’m so thankful for the support I’ve received from @instafanjoy , our parents, and my friends! Motherhood is a total life adjustment but I wouldn’t trade it for anything! (Except for maybe a little bit more sleep! 😴) • #elizaannef #babyfanjoy #babygirl #motherhood #flashbackfriday #birthstory #csection #labouranddelivery
Mmm shoutout to the husband for getting a decent shot.. for once 😂😜 no really he is my biggest fan and will always get on the ground stand on a chair or try to capture candid for me. You are the best 😘Yesterday was my rest day because on the weekend I have no time limits since it’s the weekend and we are both home 🙌🏼 so my rest days will be during the week! I ran about 2.5 miles today and every time running is feeling better and better 🏃🏻‍♀️I can’t wait to see where these legs will take me 💪🏼 happy Friday friends ✨
Less than 48 hours until I’m back on a boat with some of these babes (and a few more!) ....except the boat might be a litttttleeeee bit bigger 🛳 ....and i might be a littleeeee bit smaller. 😜

This face! 💗 not as beautiful a face when it's splitting at me because apparently that's hilarious... 😑 buuutttt the good definitely outweighs the bad 💕
Sometimes birth mimics real life. You can’t always plan for it. Despite your preparing, longing, practicing...it just is. Just like life, we get curve balls. The unexpected. Regardless, the space and the experience is yours and belongs to and you and your family - all of its glory (and messiness) is beautiful and heavenly. Protect it. . #worlddoulaweek2019
Alright y'all, I am officially postpartum... & wearing a diaper! 😅 I hesitated sharing this part of my journey, but I have documented my entire pregnancy and want to continue through this next chapter. 📖 I honestly love having a "journal" of my where my body has been. 📸 So here I am 24 hours after my third csection. I gained a total of 24lbs during my pregnancy. I'm not focusing on this number, I want to focus on how my old clothes fit and gaining my strength back! Due to my csection I will obviously need to take things a lot slower than anticipated, but I'll start by regaining core strength and working on my pelvic floor within the next couple weeks! - #postpartumbody #postpartum #mom #csection #fitmom #momof3 #pregnant #pregnancy #dueinmarch

Mistake # 1 Expecting motivation to make my workouts easy. Motivation does not just come. You have to take action and then motivation will follow. If you are just beginning know that it will be hard at first, but trust that if you keep going it will get so much better!

“I believe that my worth is not measured by what I do, by the honors that are bestowed upon me, or by material wealth that I might obtain. Instead, I am measured by the courage I show while standing for my beliefs, by the dedication I exhibit to ensure my word is good, and the resolve I undertake to establish my actions and deeds as honorable.” ~ Burgess Owens • Photo was taken while performing c-section surgery at @rskia_bdg#dedication #job #surgery #obgynlyfe #SpOG #bandung #obstetrician #gynecolog #rskia #ilovemyjob #csection #caesar #babyborn #respect #surgicapid #teamwork #doctor #likeforlikes #photography #pictures #photo #delivery
I'm very late posting this. Willow Alice Joy was born on Australia day via emergency c section. #newborn #baby #babygirl #csection #australiaday2019 #australiadaybaby
This was the first time my little boy Eric latched onto me to feed after he was born. I had worried throughout my pregnancy we wouldn't be able to breastfeed and I knew I desperately wanted to. After the revelation I couldn't give birth to him naturally and the shock of being sent for an emergency c-section - this moment helped me through and all the feeds after. I think had I not been able to, I would have struggled. I couldn't get up easily or even stand straight. Picking Eric up was hard work, but he happily stayed in my arms and would feed from me like a trooper!! I feel like our breastfeeding bond was what helped me through it all and I'm so happy we are still able to share that now. Do you have a breastfeeding story? Or even just a story about your pregnancy or birth you'd like to share? . . . . . #breastfriends #breastfedbaby #breastfeed #yourjourney #normalisebreastfeeding #breastfeeding #breastcancer #breastcancerawareness #breastmilk #pregnancy #pregnancystories #breastsarelife #momlife #mommasmilk #breastfeedingmom #csection #boobybar #csectionmum #mummy #littleboy #firstfeed #birth #liquidgold #mothersmilk
I got this bundle of joy last week 3/14/19. Luke Jabez King welcome to life outside the womb. I prepared for him in many ways, wrote a Birth Plan, kept the vag waxed, legs shaved, nails polished. But he didn't come that way. My vag had little to do with it. He's team Csection even though I fought hard for him not to be. I mean I stayed pregnant 40 weeks 4 days. But after some medical concerns, and a blood pressure drop to 53/37 I'm glad to be alive. Not that I thought I wouldn't be. God has a plan and purpose for me and I knew Luke entering the world wouldn't mean me exiting. I say all this to say that pregnancies and births are: fragile, intimate, intense, and grave at times. So support mothers having babies, they have more to worry about than our opinions, and all they really seek to hear is everything is going good and good job Mom. Lastly, it is common for black women in childbirthing to be neglected by healthcare professionals and die as a result. That isn't my story I received a lot of attention and quality care. But we must advocate to get the best care for ourselves and our families. #csection #momoftwo #motherhood #newmom #postpartum #blackmoms #blackgirlmagic #chaplainlife
You can increase the frequency that you empty your breasts to start signaling your body to produce more milk. Some moms have seen a great response to adding an evening or early morning nursing or pumping session. Make sure you’re nursing or pumping at least 8 times a day. Another way to boost your supply is to breastfeed and then pump. Sometimes your breasts may not feel completely “empty” after nursing, so add a pumping session right after your baby finishes eating. This will stimulate your body to produce more and start increasing milk supply – even if it’s just a little bit. Every drop counts! (Medela)

It's #FeatureHerFriday ! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 Today we are featuring a Jewish doula, Na'amah Wendy Keninon, from the West Coast! Check out #herstory below: When a pregnant client is preparing for labor and is interested in inspiration from the Jewish tradition, I sometimes review with her the original story of Adam and Chavah from the Torah: ~ When Chavah ate the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Bad, we learn that she became aware of duality. Before, all was whole and cyclical. Now, she could see there was clothed and naked, working and resting, spiritual and physical, life and death. ~ The pressure we feel in our body during childbirth, when our body is serving as a vessel to bring a spirit into the physical world, this is the tension of the duality between the spiritual and the physical. Our divine role as women is to bring together the spiritual and physical. ~ This is why the Jewish tradition teaches that it is the women who will bring the Age of Redemption. There are many more stories in the Jewish bible in which the elevated spiritual position of the women is revealed. We learn that the Redemption will come in the merit of the women. ~ Giving birth, being a bridge for the spiritual and physical, is one way women embody our service. Every birth is another opportunity for a mother to engage in this sacred mission and to develop our inner strength. The way she experiences and navigates her childbirth is unique each time. Every surge, every birth brings us closer to our Creator. Follow her @greendoula !
This is a question that’s been on my mind since I was pregnant - seriously - what is there to judge about the way I choose to have my baby enter the world 🤷🏽‍♀️? When I was pregnant, people would ask me why I was going to have a c section, a question I didn’t mind answering at all, unless someone ended the question with “not judging” and this was how 8/10 ended their sentence. Just to clear this up once and for all - there is nothing to judge about the way a mother chooses to welcome her baby into the world - as long as everyone is happy and feel safe that’s always the best way ☺️ simple as that. . . If you have a question just ask it - no one is assuming you’re judging - until you say you’re not 😉 *kidding* . . (I don’t think these people were or are judging mine or any other moms decisions - but that phrase makes our decisions look shameful, like other people would’ve judged us for it - so let’s just stop using it - we shouldn’t judge each others choices at all just empower them) .

Post csection #18dayspostpartum #csection I am 4kg of prepregnancy weight. Which for me was underweight, so I’m quite happy if I stay at this weight, though I just want to be able to look in the mirror and not cry at my new wrinkly belly and ripped skin 😭 #stretchmarks #twinmum

All I gotta say is thank the lord this program allows for a cheat day!! I’m only on week one but I’m loving the flexibility of this program! I get 3 days off which is allowing me to fit in the couch to 5k and I’m adjusting my days off to align with my husbands. Not to mention.... CAKE! I’ve got big goals so im trying not to have a full cheat day. But I love knowing I can have one or two cheat items without having to feel guilty for not eating as planned.
Oh how I love this village. Anyone pregnant and near SW London you are surrounded by so many amazing therapists and birth workers. This is a group of us at a brilliant CPD evening run by the wonderful @lauratilsonosteopathy. I got to talk about the anatomy and physiology of birth in relation to Hypnobirthing techniques. @wandsworthdoula spoke about supporting women so that they can have a positive attitude to their births. @lauratilsonosteopathy talked about treating the pelvis, lumbar spine and pelvic floor to assist with delivery. @susieastbury talked about a heart centred approach to relaxation, coaching women to give them autonomy over their births so they don't feel like there is something wrong with them. Hannah Brown explained how she uses pilates to stabilise joints, improve functional mobility and not just pelvic floor strengthening but release work with the breath. @lavenderpractice talked about the importance of a woman connecting to her baby using Shiatsu techqniues. @reflexjill talked about how helping a woman achieve a deep sense of relaxation is useful at all stages of pregnancy, whether to provide a restful hour to appease first trimester sickness or to help ease the pain of oedematous feet and ankles in late stage pregnancy. @continuity_matters gave a case study which showed that even if you are an informed woman with a clear and researched birth plan sometimes we need an advocate at our births who knows what we really want. And that continuity of care through pregnancy can make a real difference to birth outcomes for mum. All in it was an amazing evening and a great reminder of what a wonderful village of support we have in London.

I wrote a guest article for @youmeandthekidz on my experience with c-sections.

#moveoftheday This bridge is fabulous for so many reasons. As you can see I’m struggling with the move a little because it’s meant to strengthen your pelvic floor along with glutes and abs. After 2 c-sections y’all this is challenging BUT it’s getting easier every day. To all my c-section mamas out there try these out!
