La leche materna es el mejor alimento que una madre puede ofrecer a su hijo recién nacido. No sólo por su composición, sino también por el vínculo afectivo que se establece entre la madre y su bebé durante el acto de amamantar. La leche materna contiene todo lo que el niño necesita durante sus primeros meses de vida, protege al bebé frente a muchas enfermedades. Las mujeres que amamantan a sus hijos pierden el peso ganado durante el embarazo más rápidamente, y difícilmente padecerán anemia, hipertensión y depresión posparto.
La lactancia materna es la forma ideal de aportar a los niños pequeños los nutrientes que necesitan para un crecimiento y desarrollo saludables. Prácticamente todas las mujeres pueden amamantar, siempre que dispongan de buena información.
Karla Lara y Patricia Zedillo te compartirán todos los detalles para establecer la lactancia además, de los increíbles benéficos que está etapa tiene para ti.

When it was suggested to me that I become a doula initially, I said no. I never really wanted to be a doula. I thought doulas were great, don't get me wrong, I really wanted to work with people prenatally, at birth and postpartum. I thought about midwifery, but back then, midwives weren't common and certainly weren’t being used in my community.
I started out as a reflexologist and was excited to learn that reflexologists in the UK often worked side by side with midwives. I started to focus my practice on fertility, pregnancy, birth and postpartum. When my maternity reflexology Instructor encouraged me to take doula training, I finally decided I would, although I was still convinced doula work wouldn't be a major part of my work. I took it to enrich my maternity reflexology practice. The thought of holding cups with bendy straws and applying cold cloths didn't excite me. I wanted to do more.
I was wrong about two things.. Doula work became a major part of my work. I started attending multiple births per month right away. I also underestimated the significance of a well timed cold cloth and it's ability to keep someone's head in the game during the hardest parts of labour. I love being a doula. I love being a maternity reflexologist who works independently, with midwives and doctors. I love being an energy healing practitioner, rebirthing the old ways of honouring the emotional, mental, spiritual and esoteric aspects of my clients into their care. I found my way to exactly what I wanted to be and I love sharing it with others.

I love this guy to pieces but he's put some seriously large babies in me. And don't let this curvy-girl's bod fool you: I have a small pelvis.
How do you know when you have a small pelvis? When you give birth to TWO babies and they both have to have their collarbones broken to come out. My ex-husband gave me those babies, and he was a lot smaller (in stature and integrity-BOOM!)
So when this big hunka love (he's 6'5") gave me big babies, I had to have c-sections. Man, I felt so bad about my body: disappointed, frustrated, angry that my pelvis sucked.
Fast-forward 16 years and I still feel disappointed in those births. .
Even though I'm a labour and delivery nurse, a doula and a childbirth educator.
So I created an online course called "Fearless Caesarean" to help moms who are having scheduled c-sections to feel prepared and empowered for their births. It's available online now!
But I'm a giver- so I decided to create a FREE, online minicourse just for moms who are having a hard time accepting their upcoming caesarean. Because I WAS that mom and I wish there was something out there like this for me. .

So blessed with the support system I have😊 breaks my heart to know there are people who don't have a support system. God's mission to heal the world through connection and community - is now a mission of mine. What's your life's mission?

Dando apoio à minha parceira em sua palestra sobre o papel da doula e violência obstétrica na Escola Marcílio Dias essa manhã.
9 ay boyunca dinlediği ve en baskın ses olarak duyduğu annesinin kalp sesi dinletildiğinde ağlamaları duruyor, susuyorlar. Aslında yeni doğan bebekte de durum farksız, ilk nefesle ağlayabiliyor anne göğsüne geçince susuyor, sakinliyor. Bebekler 3 yaşına kadar doğum ve öncesi kayıtlarını zihinlerinde saklı tutarlar, hatırlarlar. Sonra bir şekilde unuturuz... Bebek olsanız, doğduğunuzda (acil müdahale gerektiren bir durum da yoksa), 9 ay boyunca dinlediğiniz annenizin kalp atışını mı duymak isterdiniz? Yoksa doğar doğmaz hiç tanımadığınız kişiler tarafından, hiç bilmediğiniz bir yere götürülmek mi isterdiniz?
Ten tene temas anne ve bebeğin en doğal haklarındandır. Acil müdahale gerektiren durumlar haricinde, ilk bir saat ten tene temas çok kıymetlidir🍀

Brewing up something exciting with a collaboration between Milk and Thistle and @pdxpestle
! I am so grateful for the deepest connections I make in this work. Alyssa is the purest sweet soul. We share a passion for people’s medicine, herbal healing, and wholistic reproductive health. Plus her house smells like actual magic and tea cups are mysteriously never empty...
Can’t wait to share more soon! Blessed Equinox loves! Time to reap what we sow! 🧡🍂
The sky was on fleeeeek last night. My 4 yo and I enjoyed it together up in her room at bedtime for a little while. This change of season where the daytime and nighttime hours become equal (hence, equinox) is the perfect time for change in your life. The things that are serving us, it’s time to let them wither away. Time to plant new seeds in your life. I am letting go of: 1️⃣ The desire for a perfect body 2️⃣ The idea that my children need me around all the time in order to feel loved (time to get to work) 3️⃣ The expectations I put on my husband without communicating them to him. I can’t expect something of someone without asking for it. What are looking to let go of for a fresh start? Then what seeds will you plant? #roadofmamahood #fallequinox #happyfall #happyautumn #bodylove #consciousparenting #marriage #mama #postartumdoula #doula
Can we talk about how amazing the placenta is?!? I don’t think I fully appreciated the magnitude of it until I saw mine (would it be considered mine or Maya’s? I mean I know it was in my body, but she was the primary user lol 🤷🏻♀️) lying on our bed after I birthed it. That thing was huge! It sustained a life. And then continued to give through the gift of capsules that helped greatly during postpartum. Such a beautiful and natural thing to be celebrated and honored! 📷: @michellelynnphotographicartist
Learning to breastfeed can be really challenging. It takes perseverance, determination and dedication. And a lot of trust. .
At some point, most women doubt themselves and their ability to adequately nourish their babies. .
Especially early on when they’re nursing for up to 10-12 hours a day (!), it’s natural for us to worry they’re not getting enough as opposed to recognizing their natural and oh-so-normal role in helping us build up a great milk supply for the days and months ahead.
It’s always wise to seek support along our breastfeeding journey, but women must also learn to trust a bit more in the awesomeness of our own bodies and the beautiful bond between us and our babies. .
This quote came from an interview with IBCLC Cindy Leclerc on the Fear Free Chilbirth Podcast.
my darlings. It’s a welcome change of season, especially given how hard a summer I had. #Fall
has always been my #favorite
, the crisp weather, floppy sweaters, beautiful leaves, & the smell of wood burning fires in the air. I’ve been running around all day, pricing out #custom #placentaencapsulation
packages & going to #client
meetings, but now I’m ready to #slowdown
, make some #pizza
for dinner, do a little NRP #studying
, get the little to sleep, & treat myself to a #sheetmask
. After all, #equinoxes
are all about #balance
The littlest Navarro is here! ✨
Meet Mateo Nicholas Navarro ✨ “baby Teo” as the boys have been affectionately calling him for months. ✨
7 lbs 4 ounces and 19 1/2 inches of sweetness that we just can’t get enough of. Born on September 20th. ✨
It’s my lot in life to be surrounded by these handsome men and to top it all off, we had the perfect birth. Mateo, Jorge, and I were so loved and supported through it all by our amazing doulas @magnolia_birth_services
and a wonderfully caring OB.
Other’s doubt doesn’t stop this one! Just because her brother and I told her she wasn’t tall enough yet did@t stop her from trying again and again and again. Are you going to let others doubt your ability? Who’s business is it anyone if you want to have your baby with an epidural? Without an epidural? At home? For the fifth time? In a hospital on your terms? Their doubt is Their problem. Your self doubt is Your problem. How are you going to win over doubt today? Let me know below! Keep reaching! 🙌🏽🙌🏽👶🏻🤙🏽
Why is Black Breastfeeding Week Necessary??? 1. The high black infant mortality rate: Black babies are dying at twice the rate (in some places, nearly triple) of other babies. According to the CDC, increased breastfeeding among black women could decrease infant mortality rates by as much as 50%.
2. High rates of diet-related disease.
3. Lack of diversity in lactation field: Not only are there blatant racial disparities in breastfeeding rates, there is a blatant disparity in breastfeeding leadership as well.
4. Unique cultural barriers among black women: While many of the “booby traps” to breastfeeding are universal, Black women also have unique cultural barriers and a complex history connected to breastfeeding. From our role as wet nurses in slavery being forced to breastfeed and nurture our slave owners children often to the detriment of our children, to the lack of mainstream role models and multi-generational support , to our own stereotyping within our community—we have a different dialogue around breastfeeding and it needs special attention.
5. Desert-Like Conditions in Our Communities. In many urban areas women cannot access support for the best first food-breast milk.
