Be Aggressive, B-E-Aggresive!

Before this article had come out, I had been pondering the idea that we as a society are becoming less independent and more dependent. We go to work for others (more common) so they can tell us what to do and give us insurance and pay, we go to the news to see whats happening even thought most important events are excluded, we go to the doctor when we are sick to be given a quick fix instead of being aware of what we do and how we got sick to avoid for next time. What happened to us taken our actions into our own hands? What happened to being in control of what we do? I know its not like this all over but I feel its starting to lean more towards us becoming an obedient society and it scares me. How will the newest inventors invent things, or scientist discover new cures? We need independent thought to be the superior being that supposively us as humans are.
This article somewhat goes with the pondering thoughts. It states that women who are more passive will be in a hospital with an OB…

Help writing a birth plan?

I found this and thought it was a good guide to remind you to stay focused when planning your natural birth. It really just skims the surface on how to start writing your birth plan. A lot of people ask me what they need to bring to birth center or hospital, or what to have at their homebirth. I also get asked what should I write in my birth plan....
I will add to these helpful hints but I have to say I do plan on writing a very detailed list on these 2 topics (birth items to bring or have, and birth plans). They are different though, items to bring are, obviously, items to bring for you and new baby or items to have at home for you and new baby.
Birth plan is your idea of how your birth should go down, interventions, mood, atmosphere, people allowed in the room, care to baby following birth, and the transition of all of this. Both of these things should be respected by your provider and your family.
So keep a look out for things to come but the above is a place to start.... Happy bi…

Vaginal twins birth is safe

A new Canadian study shows that planning a c/section for twins does NOT give us a better outcome. It's so important that we remember how extremely imperative it is to keep the confidence in our bodies. When we lose trust in ourselves and what we are capable of, it has a negative domino effect that is beyond comprehension.

Yes you CAN go over 40 weeks with a healthy pregnancy, yes you CAN deliver vaginal breech with a trained professional, yes you CAN breastfeed your newborn, yes you CAN have a safe homebirth with a Licensed Midwife, yes you CAN deliver twins safely through your vagina the way nature intended.

Remind yourselves that your instincts are correct and you must follow them. We sense its wrong when someone tells us we can't do something because instinctively we know we are meant for certain things, and birth is one of them.
