Mother To Mother Midwifery

Repost from @instinctualbirthing

How true this is. When I began to view birth differently, I began to view everything differently. ⠀

I realized that all what I thought I had known about birth was wrong. I’m learning every day. I’m learning that statistics and scientific studies do not accurately reflect much. Not just with birth. They are often biased and heavily incentivized. Information used to manipulate thoughts and ideas. ⠀

One of my favorite quotes from Birthing From Within:⠀

“We have to prepare in our hearts so that birth can happen in our bodies. ⠀
I finally understood that women have to prepare for birth in their heart and soul not in their head. That giving birth is something a woman does in her body not in her head.” -Birthing From Within by Pam England and Rob Horowitz ⠀

You already know how to birth. The key is unlearning and then relearning.

In labor, we may intuitively crave solitude... finding time alone in the shower or sitting on the toilet or retreating to the bedroom.⁣

Many times it is when we are alone with our magnificent bodies, connecting to our babies, doing the beautiful dance of labor that our power can really blossom. Surges get closer and longer and stronger- bringing our babies to us.⁣

Sometimes, a little privacy is just what we need for our journey in labor land...⁣

Birth is innately hormonal and in labor it’s important not to disturb the environment or person. ⁣

There are 5 elements that help to guard and protect both the process and the laboring person and as midwives we do our very best to honor these. ⁣

Privacy: when you feel watched or observed it can hinder oxytocin production and slow or stop labor. ⁣

Safety: when you feel comfortable and safe your body releases and regulates the hormones of birth more effectively. ⁣

Silence: those in the birthing space need to be very conscious that their presence does not interfere: limit conversation and questions. In labor, you need the freedom to make noise and act intuitively. ⁣

Darkness: keeping the space dark signals the parasympathetic nervous system to take over. The neocortex (thinking brain) is at rest and the intuitive and involuntary nature of birth takes over. ⁣

Warmth: like darkness, warmth helps to avoid adrenaline production and boost oxytocin. ⁣

Remember. We are mammals and our physiology craves these elements to birth.⁣
