When Bad Weather Moves In On Your Home Birth
What would you do if you lost power during immobilizing weather? More than that… What would you do if you are planning to have a home birth and severe weather approaches? Well let’s discuss how to Birth Like A Boss and beat the bad weather blues…
First off, take a deep breath. Get focused and realize that the baby is going to be born when he or she is ready. The baby is not prejudice to when and where… but, sometimes we are. So when we identify with the power of childbirth, we can take control over the uncontrollable, and focus on the goal to have a successful birth outcome that is clothed with the confidence of momma magic.
Where Is My Midwife?
When the weather has caused roads to close and the baby calls to your attention that he/she is ready to arrive, you need to call on your inner midwife. First, know that plenty of women have given birth in more organic environments. Second, be mindful that electrical power has nothing on the power of a birthing mother and the coming of her baby. Third, trust that the spirit of motherhood is with you and your approaching baby.
Moms should have their birth kits ordered no later than 28 weeks when planning a homebirth, this way you can be assured that you have the basics covered. Along with making sure that you have access to your midwife even if it is over the phone. Always have your cell phone battery charged and accessible. Also have your emergency plan together. This is a plus. Especially if you have to freestyle the birth. Meaning that you are not assisted by the midwife or birth companion you chose. Having these few simple things in order can alleviate common fears and empower any mom through the magical journey into motherhood.

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.
