Informational, Emotional and Physical Support from Baby Bump through to Birth and Breastfeeding.
Birth is a beautiful, empowering, emotional time for new moms and their families. The memory of a women's birth experience stays with her for the rest of her life. A positive birth experience can help women to feel connected to their bodies and amazed at its capabilities. B Doula services works with moms and families to create a positive birth experience. Partners who are excited to play a very ac
tive role during the labour are shown ways to assist and comfort the mother during this time. Support is available postpartum for families who have questions on breastfeeding and other aspects of newborn care.

FRom - The new campaign 😍🤱🏼
Interesting! Here in Canada, I have seen many famished moms eat Tim Hortons as the first meal after giving birth (as well as in labour), because it’s the middle of the night and everything else is closed. Like at least 50% of the time lol. In the birth centre they offer toast and peanut butter which I have heard also hits the spot.
And this is why some people call them “guess dates” instead of “due dates”. 🙃
Super helpful guide for when your wee one may be ready to be born...
There are tons of health benefits to breastfeeding but that does not mean it is always the right decision for parent and baby. The best thing is making an informed choice based on your own circumstances. Happy International Breastfeeding Week! 💕

“A mom’s love is universal.”
“The Journey Matters.” Tonight’s birth journey was so lovely. Thanks to Teresa Maskery of MyBabyBump.ca for the cup to keep me hydrated while doing the double hip squeeze. 😊🧡
“That’s one takeaway from a study released last week that found that when an empathetic partner holds the hand of a woman in pain, their heart and respiratory rates sync and her pain dissipates.
“The more empathic the partner and the stronger the analgesic effect, the higher the synchronization between the two when they are touching,” said lead author Pavel Goldstein, a postdoctoral pain researcher in the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Lab at CU Boulder.”
Study explores how interpersonal synchronization could help to decrease pain.
I am excited to be heading to Atlanta, Georgia from Toronto, Canada for a childbirth educator and doula conference. See you soon CAPPA!
It’s not just mother’s who have some major changes in the brain (seen through MRIs) and body after a child enters a family. This is a relatively new research topic so it will be interesting to see what else comes out about fatherhood, along with families that aren’t necessarily the nuclear model.
Hint: They don’t just get ‘dad bods.’
Very interesting study on the impact of playing music to premature babies. Music may also be used during labour. I have been in hospital rooms where families are playing music throughout the labour and even the labour and delivery staff talked about the difference they felt walking into the room 💕
Research shows that music therapy in neonatal intensive care units helps infants get released from the hospital early. Experts in Florida helped pioneer

Wow! This little sweet pea was born in her amniotic sac and continues napping there for several minutes.

New research confirms the importance of mothers feeling involved in the decision-making process with medical staff during their labour.
The World Health Organization now recommends not to bath babies for at least 24 hours after birth because of the protective properties of vernix.
A wait of at least 24 hours is recommended — for a very good reason.

As a doctor, it was tough to admit I was struggling with new motherhood
When my mother returned home, I was suddenly so profoundly overwhelmed that I questioned if I had made an enormous mistake by having a child, JudyHagshi writes
B Doula Services was a sponsor for Starlight Children Foundation's charity fundraising event Tea and Tiaras. Starlight unveiled a new line of hospital gowns called Ward + Robes which are being designed specifically for kids living with long-term illnesses. These hospital gowns are true works of art. What a stellar event!
