I鈥檝e been hearing this song in my head lately when expecting folks tell me about the limitations they have been experiencing. Do you know it? Money City Maniacs by Sloan
馃挭
I鈥檓 going to guess that when you went to your family physician to confirm your pregnancy, they didn鈥檛 tell you that you could only sleep on your left side, or to stop eating California Rolls.
馃槾
They probably didn鈥檛 tell you to stop having hot showers or baths or to stop having s*x.
馃泚
But somehow, these old wives tales have a strange way of dictating our pregnancy. Should you be careful? Sure. But for the love of god, get some sleep! (spoiler alert-you don鈥檛 need to sleep on your left side and you certainly don鈥檛 need to spend money on a contraption that will 鈥渙ptimize blood flow to your baby鈥!) get yourself some big pillows, you鈥檒l be fine.
馃泴
But bring that idea to labour. What FEELS good? It can take some advocating with your provider, but no-you don鈥檛 have to birth on your back. Movement is so, so important for labour I can鈥檛 figure out how being in one position for severe hours pushing makes any sense.
馃ぐ馃徑
If it feels good, do it. If you are concerned-reach out to your care provider, never Google and probably not your Aunt Sally.

Babies, The Delta Variant And COVID: What Parents Need To Know

This is an American article, but it shares some good tips about keeping your newborn safe from Covid-19.
If you have any hesitations about receiving the Covid vaccine, or lease reach out to your care provider (GP, Midwife or OB)

The rate of new cases of COVID-19 among babies and children under 4-years-old in the U.S. recently surpassed the rate of new cases among adults older than 65. Here's how to protect a newborn.

鈥淚鈥檓 just going to go with the flow鈥
馃寠
I鈥檝e been hearing this a lot lately, when it comes to birth and birth preparation. Folks making the assumption that when they arrive at the hospital things will go 鈥渓ickety-split鈥 and their baby will be born.
馃寠
Going with the flow is actually pretty important. Not having a specific idea of what birth will look like or having solid expectations.
馃寠
But you are 100% ALLOWED to have preferences. And I 100% guarantee that you want to know about every single possibility before it comes to you and you鈥檝e never heard of it.
馃寠
Taking a childbirth education class means that you have conversations with care providers before your birth so you fully understand possibilities ahead of time.
馃寠
It means that you and your partner have had conversations knowing what you are and are not comfortable with (extra staff in the room, perhaps)
馃寠
A healthy mom and healthy baby is the expecting and hope for everyone, but that鈥檚 the most basic care they can give. Being prepared will help you feel empowered with your birth, no matter the outcome.

What is the narrative you were taught about birth? What is it that you鈥檝e been taught as you鈥檝e listened to birth stories over the years?

Is it,

馃専The worst pain in the world
馃専The most empowering experience
馃専A woman screaming at her partner 鈥測ou did this to me!鈥
馃専The images you see in film & TV
馃専A terrifying thought
馃専Something that people accomplish every day

It鈥檚 easy, to form an opinion or idea about an experience when we hear from others. Sometimes, their experiences can even dictate the trajectory of our own experience if we aren鈥檛 careful.

Sharing stories is how we learn, but when it comes to birth we must be careful allowing someone else鈥檚 birth to influence our own experience.

It鈥檚 normal to be alarmed when you hear of a birth that didn鈥檛 go well, but your birth is your own.

Learn about your options. Talk with your care provider about your expectations. And never allow someone else鈥檚 story become your own.

For at least five years, I鈥檝e thought about the people who see me. I鈥檝e thought about the things you鈥檝e shared about the challenges in finding support you need. I鈥檝e carried it all, hoping to find a better way.
馃挏
How is it, with a city the size of Lethbridge, with its young population no one has created this space yet?
馃挏
A space to support families in true stages of family planning support they need?
馃挏
A space for both parents to feel welcome and supported in a judgement free space.
馃挏
Somewhere they could find treatments to support the discomforts that come with the stress of trying to conceive, pregnancy, postpartum and just life?
馃挏
I鈥檓 here for this. But I鈥檝e always just been one. One person with two hands. One RMT. One Birth doula. One Childbirth Educator.
馃挏
I鈥檓 happy to share that I have found some really beautiful humans to support you. I can鈥檛 wait to tell you about them.
馃挏
What support could you use in these stages of life? What about your partner? How could they be better supported?
