You can never hold a baby too much. There is NO such thing as spoiling your baby by holding them. This is an ignorant, non scientific theory passed on. We now have science that tells us the nervous systems of infants is immature and they need to be held in order for optimal brain health. Holding your baby as they wish, not only makes them happier but it makes their brains happier and smarter. Touch wires your babyโ€™s brain for love and good emotional regulation. Connection is the foundation of mental health so take every chance to connect physically with your baby. @blossomandberrybabymassage

Come and join our group class and learn everything you'll need to know, to have a healthy, safe and empowering birth. I want parents to feel confident asking questions and making informed decisions, giving you the ability to comfortably take control of your birth journey.

Lamaze is a guide, a resource parents can use to empower themselves throughout their pregnancy, to help them ease stresses and fears and understand the choices they have. 
Birthability Lamaze classes will guide you through pregnancy, birth, labour and early parenting. Classes will help you advocate for the birth you want and assist in your communicating with your care provider, giving you confidence and knowledge to make informed decisions.

Classes are kept small, intimate, fun and interactive.

This will be our first class at our new venue The Vibe Wellness Collective Terrigal

Over the last few weeks we have seen birth plans torn apart by care providers, we have seen women torn down, ridiculed and belittled for wanting to express their preferences and how they want to birth and be supported. We have watched time and time again images of birth be removed, birth workers be banned - mothers and birth being censored.โ €
โ €
Over many years birth has been hidden, all its glory, all its beauty and strength removed. Birth has been covered, blinded, reported and shamed. Mothers have been blinded, misguided, misinformed, judged, bullied and coerced.โ €
โ €
When we think of birth we never think of it being, taboo or censored, we never think of a mother being bullied or walking into birth blindfolded - however this is whats happening.โ €
โ €
Some women are giving birth unsupported and misinformed from some care providers, birth plans are being ignored and tossed aside and images of birth are being removed and censored.โ €
โ €
So why am I posting this - because I want the world to see birth for what it truely is! beautiful, inspiring, raw, empowering, emotional and darn frickin amazing!! I want birthing women to know that they have a voice, they can take back their birth and be educated, informed of their options and choices and rock their birth full of power and strength.โ €
โ €
Its time to remove the blindfold, its time to remove the censorship. Its time for birthing women to be heard, listened and supported!โ €
โ €
Birth is beautiful.โ €

This picture might not look like anything too special but it is. This is me cuddling my sleeping 9 month old who about 15 minutes earlier was miserable and in pain from teething and being over tired. I am thankful I was home and able to comfort him and nurse him to sleep. A majority of my job is working from home which allows me to be able to have moments like these. โ™ก

*** SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT *** A couple of weeks ago I did Doula training with Anna Watts from Celebration of Birth. 
I am pleased to announce that I will now be offering Doula support to birthing women on the central coast.

A Doula can provide such amazing support in birth and Doulas help make birth better! There is incredible evidence that shows how birth doulas improve outcomes: โ€ข
โ€ข
โ€ข
Research shows that women who use a birth doula are:
> less likely to need Syntocinon
> less likely to have a cesarean birth
> less likely to use any pain medication
> more likely to rate their childbirth experience positively
โ€ข
โ€ข
They nurture ๐Ÿ’œ, support ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปand offer expert guidance๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป for families during their pregnancy, birth and the early postpartum time. 
If you know anyone who is pregnant or you if you're interested in having a doula support you in your birth, contact me today or email me at education@birthability.com.au for more information

Never underestimate the power of support.

Support can come in a variety of forms, from listening, speaking, to encouragement, to a simple touch, look or embrace.

Support is acknowledging, helping and showing someone you believie in them and what they want to achieve and not trying to change their mind - support is knowing what they are capable of and being in awe and amazed of what they have done.

Support can change an outcome.
Support can change feelings.
Support can change a view.
Support can change emotions.
Support can change a mother.
Support can change labour.
Support can change birth.

Support is powerful.
Support CAN make a difference.

Never underestimate the power of support.  #birthabilityeducation #partnersupportlearntosupportinbirth #supportmakesadifference #supportispowerfull #birthispowerfull #birthisraw #embraceyourbirthability #embracebirth

Movement in labor serves two important purposes. It keeps labor progressing as well as helping Mom to cope. Evidence shows that women find movement helpful and can increase comfort and confidence. Actively responding to pain can help you find activities and positions that feel best for you. When you move around, the pelvis stays open and allows your uterus to work more efficiently. Freedom of movement in labor also allows the baby to descend and rotate into the optimal position for birth. Also gravity.

So not my usual birthy scene, but what a fabulous night! Went to the launch of the brand spanking new #watermanchadstone business hub - the largest business hub in Australia. And what an event they put on! Absolutely amazing space (over 5,000 sq. ft. of beautifully designed private and shared work spaces) ideal for the budding entrepreneur (like moi lol!). This has got to be the coolest co-working space I've ever seen. They've thought of literally EVERYTHING. Highlight for me was no doubt hearing from the incredibly inspiring co-founder of #thankyou - Daniel Flynn and having him sign a copy of his book #chapterone "You have the power to change stuff."

AMEN! #watermanbiz  #coworking  #coworkinglife  #coworkingspaces  #femaleentrepreneur  #birthpassioneer  #birthpreneur  #chadstone  #melbournebirthprofessionals  #lamazeeducator  #lamazeaustralia  #birthrevolution 
Last night was week 5 in Late Night Lamaze at @thespot326 class and we talked "cascade of interventions". During this class every couple receives a numbered box.  As we go 1 through 12 they read a piece of a birth story.  Box 1 includes a small seemingly insignificant intervention.  As the birth story goes on the interventions mount and the stack of boxes become harder to handle.

As you can see by the photographic evidence this dad had zero problems handling this "birth". ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜Š. But it's not so easy to handle the snowball effect that can happen with interventions.  In Lamaze we are preparing our Moms and Dads to  choose interventions wisely!

When you've got a nasty viral infection and laryngitis there can be no better medicine than homemade chicken soup #jewishpenicillin #chickensoup #chickensoupforthesoul #matzahballsoup #channellingmyinnerbubba #melbournewinter Got to be fit and healthy for next week's #lamazeeducator training in Brisbane!
Visual learners, this is for you! 
Remaining upright (not reclining on your back) + leaning forward helps to reduce pressure and allows your baby's head to bear down on your cervix. That may sound intimidating, but it decreases pain from contractions and can result in quicker dilation! ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿฝ #childbirth #childbirthclasses #doulaviewllc #pregnant #pregnancyannouncement #laboranddelivery #birth #birthpositions #doula #lamazeeducator
Welcome to the world sweet Nora June. It was a pleasure being your doula! ๐Ÿ˜

One of my greatest achievements  #lamazeeducator
I think it's safe to say that our super early bird discount was a runaway success! Nine new registrations in the last few days for our #lamazeeducator  training programs in #melbourne #sydney and #brisbane in 2017!
There's only 1 spot left for Melbourne and about 5 places each for Sydney and Brisbane. If you didn't register in time for the super early bird rate - FEAR NOT! You can still take advantage of our regular early bird discount of 10% if you register more than 30 days out from the start of a training. But hurry - places are filling FAST! Now off to the post office to mail these copies of #theofficiallamazeguide to their new owners! #lamazeaustralia #lamazechildbirtheducator
