Growing Up In 2015!

TIME TO SHIFT

Have you just simply outgrown your belief systems, but you’d rather stay in an uncomfortable place? It is okay to learn new ways to think. Most of us have been taught that we can only access 10% of our brain, but what if we began to expand outside of what we have known? Most of us only believe what we have been taught to think, feel, be… etc…

I was told that I had small hips and would not be able to give birth to my oldest son vaginally. Many women are fed that same story line… But my belief was different. I believed the Creator put baby inside me via my husband, whatever the size, baby would figure how to get itself out.

I lived with the thoughts of my own mothers birth horror story for so long, that once I became pregnant, I refused to relive her experience, through my own birth. I wanted to own my experience. So I worked on my vision of birth and I created the exact experience I wanted, and my husband, sacredly held that space for me. With each birth the power became more and more evident. Now together, my husband and I help other families, hold the creative space for the birth experience they want to have.

That is why TIM launched the #HAPPY2015 New Year campaign. We are so much more than a team of hyper focused childbirth consultants. We are professional game changers. And because we know righ now, there is a mental attact on the way childbirth is viewed — We believe NOW is the best time get intune, and to forgive yourself for letting others think for you. This kind of thinking doesn’t even require 10% of the proposed brain power that we are taught we to have access to.

It’s really simple…

Remember when you were a baby, traveling down the birth canal? There was padding an bumpers along the way, so you couldn’t just fall out of the vagina? Remember how safe you were? You were closest with God than any other time in your life. You could not read, nor write, nor were you speaking words —

But now with all the flimsy, plastic, radicalized, sterile, notions of coming into life, and what and how we should believe — Somehow we lost the connection to intute from our true mental environment.

Reality is false.

Time is draining.

And Matter…

Matter is… a fragile, yet tangible system, that many of us have to grow into, yet afraid to put on a size bigger for fear of looking or feeling the awkwardness of falling down.

But one thing is clear as the day that you were born…

One day you will shift. One day you will grow.

–And this growth will either come through wisdom or through woe. Its totally up to what your belief is around who you are that determines how you will birth.

Get The Facts About Successful Breastfeeding

You Can’t Listen To Everybody

While cruising the web and checking my email, I came across a crazy article, which I was #279 to give it a thumbs down, and I am happy I did for several reasons.

One, as a successful breastfeeding mom, advocate, and self-directed educator, it is quite disturbing to see information floating around regarding breastfeeding that is negatively displayed. The second reason is because, my favorite numbers are 2, 7, and 9 and when they are in sequence like that, they are symbolic to me.

The number (9) is symbolic to woman and childbirth. I have seen breastfeeding from every angle, but it makes me wonder if more women are unsuccessful because they are listening to misinformation or don’t have a positive visual. This is  that is totally bias and creating a wider gap in the push for more women to jump on Mother Nature’s lactating bandwagon. I don’t ever want mothers to feel discouraged from providing her baby… and herself with the best possible outcomes that come exclusively from breastfeeding.

So I want you to go to the article and check it out for yourself. No matter what, yeah we can identify with some of the information, but this should not be the focus. As a blogger, this is a bad look for those who are considering breastfeeding for the first time. I don’t want moms to take this information and use it as supported facts because, even though these are some of the experiences “breastfeeding moms” encounter. It is in no way “hateful.” Challenging yes, but there are plenty of things to discuss more openly about breastfeeding that should bear much more concern.

The art of breastfeeding is just that. I see it as Mother Nature’s way of helping women understand the alchemy of coming into motherhood.  There are so many angles that we could address breastfeeding from a positive perspective. Yet it is still revered as this painful, arduous, and even embarrassing for some, in the event of motherhood.

Why is that I ask? People are more comfortable watching a love scene on television, rather than seeing a woman nurse her baby. Mind you they associate the act with sexual behaviors because, they do not have the right information. So they confuse mothering a baby, with jaded and perverse lenses.

And I have heard all kinds of stories while on my own journey. Some were nice, others not so nice 😦 . The saddest part is when it comes from your loved ones. Often their lack of understanding or education about the benefits of breastfeeding leads them to make indifferent comments. This is when you have to know that you can’t listen to everybody. If I would have listened to the naysayers, then I would not have continued nursing my children until they were just about 2-years. I would have stopped at 6-weeks.

Now ask me was it an adjustment? Yes! Was it painful in the beginning? Yes. But what is pain? Weakness leaving the body. It is really all about perspective. When we identify with something in a way that only we understand it, then we cancel out the opportunity to become more open and receptive to new discoveries about ourselves. And breastfeeding is the next best way to self discovery other than marriage and childbirth.

So here are (9) ways to be encouraged by breastfeeding that most will not tell you.

  • Breastfeeding your baby takes commitment and determination. Breastfeeding women need to maintain a nutritious, well-balanced diet. Moms must remember she is still eating for two. Just be mindful. No fancy diet regimens needed.
  • If applicable incorporate father/partner time with the baby. This is a sure way to give yourself breaks in between feedings, especially new moms. Fathers can lay and cuddle during feedings to maintain active bonding time with mother and baby.
  • Many mothers who choose to nurse their babies also work or go to school, and they do this successfully. The benefit of breastfeeding also builds up a babies immunity so mom does not have to take off as much because, formula-fed babies catch colds, earaches, intestinal upsets, and other illnesses more easily. Exclusive breastfeeding has also been noted to aid in the reduction of the infant mortality rate.
  • For the woman who has to breastfeed in public, there are many techniques that one can learn to be modest during feeding times. Some of these are even fashion forward.
  • Most new moms fear that they are not producing enough milk right after the baby is born. And she is right. Because she is not producing milk, she is producing colostrum. Colostrum contains the most valuable nutrients and immunizing agents, and it is all a baby needs until mature milk begins to be produced. This is roughly about 72 hours after the baby is born. So KEEP Nursing! The longer the better… At least 18-24 months.
  • Don’t worry about losing the baby weight so quickly. On an average a woman burns 300-500 calories a day breastfeeding. This is just enough to gradually lose weight in a healthy way that still supports your baby’s nutritional needs.
  • Women who have cesarean births can breastfeed just like women who birth vaginally. It is important to know the ideal breastfeeding positions to keep pressure off the incision site. This can also be soothing to women who had to have an emergency or unplanned C-section to reconnect with the bonding element of childbirth.
  • The baby will let you know if he/she/they are not getting enough milk. Look for signs of hunger, growth activity, how alert baby is, and how many diapers you go through. (This is where the value of cloth diapering comes in, but that’s a whole different post).
  • Breastfeeding is just as good for the mom as it is for the baby. Like, breastfeeding reduces postpartum bleeding and may also reduce the risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer.

Well here it is… I hope that this helps someone to be encouraged and keep up the good work of nursing your baby. Don’t listen to negative information and stay focused on the goal. You are part of the solution.

Our Moment Of Truth

The InTune Mother Project Wants Normal, Healthy Childbirth for Women & Families

 

According to research from the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM), many women are not having important conversations with their healthcare providers about how to maintain their health during pregnancy (62%) or about preparing for motherhood (80%). In fact, ACNM’s survey shows a major gap in what women say they want from their healthcare and what women are getting across a spectrum of health needs.

 

To improve the dialogue, The InTune Mother Project is excited to support Our Moment of Truth™: A New Understanding of Midwifery Care. Through this national campaign, ACNM aims to raise the bar for women’s health and re-introduce midwives and midwifery care as important options that should be the norm for women’s health care services in the United States.

 

Midwives are critically important in providing care to women from adolescence to beyond menopause, but their expert knowledge of women’s health is often overlooked. Even though the general public often associates midwives exclusively with maternity care, many women visit a midwife for a range of services before and after pregnancy. This is just one of the many facts that Our Moment of Truth™ aims to share.

 

The InTune Mother Project has already begun to spread the word by: sharing our story; posting information on our social media channels; and taking the Your Health Promise pledge at www.ourmomentoftruth.com. We hope that you too will consider getting involved in this important initiative to inspire women across the country to become active decision makers in their health care.

 

Visit the Our Moment of Truth™ Web site for more information and an overview of survey findings. Or leave a comment to share your moment of truth related to women’s health care and/or midwifery.
