Aside from being a mother, being a doula is the most rewarding job I’ve ever had. Every Mother’s Day, so many clients take a bit of time away from their family to wish me well and thank me for the small part I played in their journey to motherhood. So, thank you, mamas, for your trust, love, and strength. You’re all amazing. ❤️

Love this! Did you know that there are biological reasons that babies fall asleep at the breast? Nursing to sleep is normal, not a bad habit.

Aging of the placenta

It is widely believed that during the relatively short duration of a normal pregnancy the placenta progressively ages and is, at term, on the verge of a decline into morphological and physiological senescence.1-3 This belief is based on the apparent convergence of clinical, structural, and functiona...

Have you worried that your newborn fell asleep hungry after breastfeeding?
"When a baby is hungry, he tends to clench his fists tightly and bring them toward his face. If he falls asleep hungry, his fists usually stay clenched. But when he gets milk, he relaxes starting with his face. Then his shoulders relax, and finally those fists unclench. Eventually they're as limp as the rest of him. Think of his hands as a built-in fuel gauge." -- La Leche League's Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, 8th edition
#listentoyourbaby #listentoyourself #bfsupport #newbornnursing
This rule should be used for healthy, full-term newborns. If your newborn is listless and difficult to wake, consulting with your healthcare provider to rule out extenuating circumstances is recommended.

Who run the world?!?!

"Hats off to this #DrMom and member of Physician Moms Group #PMG, Dr. Amanda Hess! This picture was taken minutes after she delivered her second child, Ellen Joyce! Not only does she look like a stunning model but while she was getting into her patient gown to prepare for her induction and delivery she overheard the nurses preparing for a woman in active labor who needed to deliver immediately because the baby was in distress - that baby was coming and needed help! The patient's OBGYN was on their way but Dr. Hess (an OBGYN herself) knew that the baby needed attention now! So, in her own words, she 'put another gown on to cover my backside, put some splash boots on over my flip flops' and delivered that baby! She literally worked until the last second!!

Those mamas are bonded for life! And Baby Ellen (and her big sister Kate) will have fun hearing this story when they are older! Doctor moms consistently take care of their own families as well as their patients and their respective families all the time. Great job, Dr. Hess! Now enjoy your maternity leave!"

Some market research:

If you are expecting, which type of class would you prefer to take?

Newborn care and breastfeeding all in one?

Newborn care separate from breastfeeding?

So very true.

*EDITED TO ADD* Thank you everyone for your positive comments! With so many comments, we just cannot keep up with them. So please, use common decency and only make positive comments.

My last client of 2016 dancing her baby down through contractions at 6 cm dilated!

As these questions have been asked many times, we're going t address them here:

She's wearing the mesh underwear and pad because her water had broken and was leaking.

She did not have pain medication for her birth.

The woman dancing with her is her sister-in-law, not a nurse.

The monitor on her belly is the Novii wireless fetal monitor from Monica Healthcare. It is a waterproof and wireless contraction and heart rate monitor.

On Monday evening, I had the pleasure of supporting a fierce second time mother and her amazing husband during the labor and birth of their little girl. She progressed very quickly once I got there, and I was in in awe of how tender and supportive her husband was with her. Through each contraction, he whispered words of encouragement in her ear, held her hand, and gazed into her eyes when she looked to him for guidance. He never wavered, never doubted her ability. After her baby girl was born, the father went across the room with her while they weighed and measured her, and I sat on the bed with her mother, holding her hand while the midwife took care of business. She looked up at me, with that after-birth glow, and said "we did it." No, love, YOU did it. I was simply there to guide you.

Welcome to the world Baby Girl Maxine Elizabeth! You've got an amazing set of parents.

Although I don't consider myself an accessory, I'm very proud to be offering postpartum services to families in the area. The fourth trimester is such a delicate time for new families. Do you have a plan in place to help make a peaceful transition?

"'It’s the same logic as first putting the oxygen mask on the mother on the airplane,” says Ruth Callahan, founder and director of Manhattan’s Doula Care, which counts Griffin among its staff. “In America, there is this perception that the woman has to get on and do it all on her own, but, of course, in a place like New York City, help is at hand.'"http://nyp.st/2gDyae4
