H E L L O !
I’m Amy from Maternal Bloom and I’m a postnatal doula. I thought I’d do an introduction to me and also to explain a bit about postnatal doulas.
This was me as a new mum in May 2017. I found myself in a brand new and scary world. We lived far away from family and friends, and I felt isolated and lonely, especially when my husband went back to work. I struggled so much with breastfeeding - something I hadn’t previously questioned my ability to do. I was besotted with this wonderful new life we had created, but I struggled with the simple things that I used to do with absolute ease - cooking, making a cup of tea, having a bath or shower etc.! Here’s where postnatal doulas come in. We unfortunately live in an age where women are pretty unsupported. Traditionally throughout many cultures, new Mums were cared for by the women of their village or family. They would, essentially, mother the new mother. Help her with bathing, pass on advice and support with feeding the baby. They would feed her and get her drinks, they’d clean up around her so she didn’t have to do anything other than bond with her new baby. This is what our culture has lost. This is what we, as women and families, so desperately need. That’s what we, as postnatal doulas, do for our clients! We’re here to be your friend, your mother, your sister, your aunt, your confidant.
I am so passionate about women, babies, birth, children and families. I’m here to support my clients through all of the new changes they encounter with the arrival of their new baby.

📽Фильм «Свет в океане»✨
⠀ Как же он божественно снят: берега Австралии, невероятная природа, красивые актеры.
Прекрасный остров, на котором живет молодая супружеская пара: смотритель маяка Том и его жена Изабель. Совсем одни на целом острове, представляете?
⠀ Фильм о том, как преображает любовь. Фильм о том, сколько испытаний может выпасть на судьбу двух любящих людей. Каждая неудачная попытка выносить ребёнка сводит с ума Изабель. Ее душа настолько изранена, что когда к берегам острова подплывает лодка с младенцем, она уговаривает мужа совершить приступление: оставить ребёнка себе и не сообщать об этом властям.
⠀ Фильм смотрится на одном дыхании. Сюжет для меня был абсолютно непредсказуемый и тронул до глубины души. 📝Цитаты:
▪️Жизнь — коварная штука, от которой никогда не знаешь, чего ожидать. Она часто протягивает дары одной рукой, а другой их тут же отнимает.
▪️Когда жена теряет мужа, она становится вдовой. А для родителей, потерявших детей, даже особого слова нет.
⠀ ❌Ограничения: не стоит смотреть беременным женщинам 😘

Good morning everyone this is my second day at Château Anand starting my Yoga Doula training with Gurujagat; it’s a lesson to find my own serenity within so I can be at my best to help future Mamas.
This morning was my first Sadhana at 5am - a pretty spectacular experience.

I could not be any more in love with this! My cup is full today! 💕💕💕
Have you booked your placenta Encapsulation package?! It is THE best gift you can give yourself mama! DM me x
A super great visual for some active birth labour positions! Did you know keeping active and moving during labour can actually reduce the length of it? It can also lead to fewer interventions and higher satisfaction for new mums!
Mama looks super supported in this pics too which is awesome! Keep moving ladies! It’ll help that Bub move down and out! I always like to use the analogy ‘you don’t get sauce out of a bottle by lying it on its back’ ... gravity!! Lying on your back in bed is the Worst thing you can do for strong, consistent labour ❤️
Yes! This! I am so excited to be taking 2019 Doula clients! Beautiful pregnant mamas, let’s chat! 💕

I’m opening up my 2019 availability, and I can’t wait to support all the incredible moms and their partners with their birthing journey! 🤰
I limit my intakes as I like to really give my moms the quality care that they need, so if you haven’t made a decision yet, let’s chat before bookings close! 😊
You can learn more 👉 about Stages by clicking the link in BIO, or DM me for more information.
Oh and did I mention we also have an incredible Post- Partum Doula for all your aftercare needs? You’re going to love 😍 @stephani.ono
, she’s incredible.
This is what my client said today while feeding her baby, Baby N.E.W., for the first time.
She looked me in my eye and nodded as she said "This is dope." That was the word I had in mind, too!
Today was an amazing experience as I assisted my first Doula client in her first birth. I really hope I did well, because I promise I didn't have time to think, just do. Like Nicole @sistamidwife
said: "If you weren't a Doula before you walked into this class, you won't be one when you leave." I am a Doula! Among other things. And I'm honored to serve in all the ways!
Karibu, Baby N.E.W. And thank you for joining us 🌟

Capturing the life of newborns is such a thrill! Those tiny hands, little bodies, their little moans, and best of all, the moms who rocked at bringing them into the world!
I think we can all relate!! There’s love and then there’s chocolate, what’s your favourite kind? 😍
I’ll tell you mine if your SHARE below 👇.
I give this day to You.
May my mind stay centered on the things of spirit.
May I not be tempted to stray from love.
As I begin this day, I open to receive You.
Please enter where You already abide.
May my mind and heart be pure and true, and may I not deviate from the things of goodness.
May I see the love and innocence in all mankind, behind the masks we all wear and the
illusions of this worldly plane.
I surrender to You my doings this day.
I ask only that they serve You and the healing of the world.
May I bring Your love and goodness with me, to give unto others wherever I go.
Make me the person You would have me be.
Direct my footsteps, and show me what You would have me do.
Make the world a safer, more beautiful place.
Bless all Your creatures.
Heal us all, and use me, dear Lord, that I might know the joy of being used by You.

Throwback to a little over 2 years ago... Enzo was just 8 days old and I remember feeling so nervous to leave the comfort of my own home to get these professional photos done. Mostly because breastfeeding didn't come easy for me in the beginning. I would attempt getting him to latch for close to an hour, while this tiny hangry baby screamed bloody murder at my nipples... And this was at each feeding (which was every 2-3 hours at this point). I was exhausted, overwhelmed, sore and in a postpartum haze.
It's kind of ironic to think that when most people look at this photo they see a blissful mom, so in love with her new little bundle.
Did you know that Craniosacral Therapy works wonders for breastfeeding issues, colicky babies, acid reflux, birth trauma the list goes on and on. I highly recommend seeing a knowledgeable therapist BEFORE you schedule that lip and/or tongue tie procedure. I feel blessed to have trained under Dr Alison Hazelbaker. Her original research on tongue-tie, done in 1993, has changed clinical practice both in the USA and abroad. She authored the Assessment Tool for Lingual Frenulum Function (ATLFF) . It remains the only research-based tongue-tie screening process in infants under 6 months. I can help assess the situation at hand with my knowledge, certifications, trainings in Lactation, Craniosacral Therapy (specializing in mom and babies) and as a Innate Postpartum Care Provider. It's important for someone to be able to take a step back and be able to see the big picture at hand and not be hyper focused on just one possibility.... Please message me if you'd like to schedule an appointment ☎️💛 🌸"All I can say is Luka works magic. Our 2 week old was showing signs of reflux so my midwife suggested we see Luka. He started showing signs of improvement after just our first appt! By our 2nd appt, the nights of me staying up late googling acid reflux cures while rocking an inconsolable baby seemed like a distant memory. By 6 weeks, he was sleeping through the night. He is the happiest, sweetest, non-fussy baby I’ve ever met ... I just wish I had seen Luka with our first now. She truly is a miracle worker and I recommend her to anyone and everyone I talk to. I can't thank you enough for all your help!"🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸
Muchas veces pasa, que junto con la llegada de un hijo/a llegan tambié los temores. Nos llenamos de miedos, de inseguridades, pero hay un tipo de miedo del que uno pocas veces habla y es el miedo de llegar a perder a un hijo/a.
La muerte no es un tema sencillo de abordar, ni menos cuando se trata de alguien a quien amamos.
Recuerdo que en algún momento de mi pre adolescencia le decía a mis papas "que no importaba si yo moría antes que ellos, ellos tenían que seguir siendo felices por que así es la vida, es lo que a todos les tocará algún dia". Que ingenua y egoísta pensar que ellos debían sentir como yo creía en ese momento, claro, no era mamá aun para sentirlo, pero ahora que tengo un hijo, el tema de pensar en llegar a perderlo, de sólo pensar en que algún día ya no estará en este plano, les juro que se me apretar la guata de miedo y digo lo que siempre me decían mis papás: Ojalá yo haya partido antes. Por que el dolor que debe cargar una mamá y un papá que han perdido un hijo/a debe ser descomunal y eterno.
Es que uno ama tanto a los hijos que jamás llega a pensar en que algo así pueda pasarle, no existe esa posibilidad en nuestros corazones, pero pasa, la muerte es parte de la vida y de todo lo que nos rodea.
No somos seres eternos, no conocemos el destino de nuestras vidas, ojalá tengamos la dicha de ver crecer a nuestros hijos y que sean personas de bien, seres llenos de amor, respeto y compasión por el resto.
Pero mientras la vida pasa y el futuro sea incierto, sólo queda aprovechar los minutos, los momentos, aprovecharlos a ellos nuestros hijos, aprovechar a los padres, aprovechar a los hermanos y a los amigos, pero por sobre todo aprovecharse a si mismo.
Ojala hijo/a que el día en que tú no estes, yo ya me haya ido. 🌠✨
Un abrazo y feliz fin de semana!

Nada mais gostoso do que ter encontros pré-parto pra encher o dia de amor. Estar com as gestantes auxiliando no preparo para o parto me transborda. Eu sempre saio com a sensação que estou cumprindo minha missão na Terra. Acolher, escutar, oferecer caminhos para uma gestação tranquila e cheia de confiança para o parto é uma das coisas as quais mais me dedico. TODAS as mulheres merecem uma assistência de qualidade, todas as mulheres merecem ser ouvidas, compreendidas e abraçadas, principalmente nesse momento tão novo, sensível e intenso. Agradeço a todas as mulheres que permitiram e permitem que eu as acompanhe, é uma honra estar com vocês.💖

I’m delighted to be presenting a workshop on heart-centred marketing for spiritual women at the 2019 Doula conference and retreat.
Conference is a national conference event that takes place during International Doula Week, (22-28th March), for doulas and workers in birth. Doula Conference was founded by a committee of women who were passionate about birth and healthy families. They were united by their vision to support a sustainable community of practice for doulas and birth workers in Australia; linking ancient wisdom and tradition with evidence based practice in the modern birth environment.
This conference is an event that aims to connect Australian doulas and birth workers; to share information and meet the real-life person who we have chatted with so many times in the online forums; and, importantly to recognise and reward our wide spread community for the unique work that we do. Connectedness and support are essential for the ongoing sustainability of the practice.
“Giving energy is at the heart of the work so it can be as demanding as it can be rewarding, in isolation." “Connecting doulas with other doulas is important for sharing experience, new and old ways of doing things, discussing innovation, and information about different hospitals and birth places that will ultimately benefit the birthing mothers and families. It is essential for raising the profile of a movement that has been proven to support better birth outcomes and healthier families.”
Doula Conference is working to raise public awareness and demystify the work of doulas in Australia; to diversify the conversation about birth and promote mutual understanding between doulas and the medical/allied health community. But, most importantly, Doula Conference exists to affect better birth outcomes and healthier families in Australia. Come join us at the beautiful #lakeainsworth #lennoxhead

In today's modern fast paced society we need to be incorporating restorative practices into our lives somehow. Especially mothers, who are so tuned in to responding to the needs of others, but less so the needs of themselves. Committing to a restorative practice is being open and committed to receiving self-love and filling up your own cup too.
This itty bitty placenta is perfection. You see, it nurtured a beautiful lil baby boy for 9 months in his mothers womb. Later when it was birthed, it was encapsulated AND now, it is supporting its parent. Some of my clients say that placenta encapsulation has helped them through the baby blues, has helped with milk production, has helped their bodies feel better sooner. Sure, it's not FDA approved. It is a whole-listic practice, that gives YOU another option. When processed right, it is a safe addition to your care and support. I teach others about this and provide this services to any person interested in it. I have a few openings for the remainder of this year. If your looking for excellent doula care and support, and placenta encapsulation send me an email to email@example.com
I am your doula. #iamyourdoula #thebronxdoula
Introduction. It’s been a while since I said a little something about myself for anyone new here. My name is Sarah Parente and I own Sacred Work Doula Services. I have been a birth Doula for 10 years now and I still love it so much. I am a native Texan who studied classical singing and opera theater. I now have 4 children with my husband of 13 years. It is such an honor to become part of a family’s birth team and I strive to honor the sacred in every birth. ❤️. #austindoula #doula #sacredworkdoula
Sobre vc, eu e todo mundo: " Existe uma vitalidade, uma força de vida, uma energia, um despertar, que é traduzido em ação através de você, e porque só existe um de você em todos os tempos, essa expressão é única." Martha Grahan
Aí fica ressoando em mim a frase debochada que ouvi da Alexandra na palestra no Aracuan @espaco_aracuan
sobre leitura de aura: "A rosa não vez curso com o cacto para ser tulipa. A rosa é só a rosa." Isso com Rs de quem tem um sotaque russo massa!
E aí só faz sentindo a gente se amar muito e honrar nossa alma sendo nós mesmos em toda a totalidade e amor!
Fica presente e ame-se!

It has been 3 whole months with our dear babe! Around one year ago we were struggling with a loss while desperately trying for a baby after secondary infertility. But a few short weeks later we would get the news of the happiest rainbow baby. As hard as it was at the time, experiencing a loss durning Pregnancy & Infant loss month helped a lot knowing I was not alone in the journey. Two of our sons came directly after a loss, and though we will never know who those other babies would have been, we are so thankful for the ones we have now! Happy 1/4 of a year, our sweet Max. We are so lucky to have your smiles and nights full of sleep (ya'll, a baby who sleeps is a game changer! His 3 year old brother sleeps worse than him 🤦♀️)
Quer me ver agoniada é eu ver profissional prescrevendo medicamentos ainda na maternidade "pro leite descer mais rápido". Gente, vamos pensar na fisiologia?
Tal conduta é comum uma vez que algumas medicações tem como efeito colateral um aumento nos níveis séricos de prolactina, um hormônio importante no início do período de lactação.
CONTUDO, ENTRETANTO, TODAVIA a prolactina só vai agir SE e somente SE os níveis de estrogênio e progesterona baixarem, pois estes hormônios impedem a ação da prolactina. Portanto, caros colegas, esses medicamentos não servem para absolutamente NADA. N-A-D-A. Ou melhor, servem sim. Servem pra encher o bolso da indústria farmacêutica de dinheiro.
O corpo da mulher precisa de tempo pra que essa "dança hormonal" aconteça. A propósito, durante a gestação os níveis de prolactina sobem gradualmente, mas ela só vai entrar em ação no tempo certo.
Vamos ajudar as mulheres a amamentar, auxiliando na pega, no posicionamento e orientando sobre os benefícios do contato pele a pele e livre demanda. Vamos ajudar essas mulheres acolhendo suas dúvidas e inseguranças, porque ninguém nasce sabendo amamentar, apesar deste ser um processo que caracterize a nossa espécie animal.
Eu garanto que isso vai ser infinitamente mais útil.

Let’s talk about brain changes during the postpartum period- did you know that your brain restructures in order to prioritize your baby’s survival? Your midbrain region and prefrontal cortex (which is involved in decision making, regulating emotions, and learning) actually grows in order to develop maternal instinct. This is also why some moms experience “mom brain” and are more forgetful as our brains energy is prioritized in different ways 3-4 months after birth!
This is feeling quite relevant to me as I’m 3 weeks postpartum today. This photo was taken the day we got home from the hospital. 🤗

Apa sih manfaatnya babyspa?
Atau hanya sekedar ngikutin trend aja??
Ini nih bunda, saya kasih tau banyak banget manfaat dr babyspa, seperti menstimulasi pertumbuhan dan perkembangan syaraf dan motorik bayi, mendorong keseimbangan kerja otak kanan dan kiri, membuat bayi lebih tenang dan nyaman, serta saat berenang hampir seluruh otot yg ada dalam tubuh bekerja..
Makanya berenang menjadi setelah satu olahraga yg dianjurkan Rasulullah selain memanah & berkuda.
Jd, ga da alesan lagi dong buat GA mencoba babyspa.

• The importance of touch•
The reason why mama cats lick their baby cats is to activate their urinary, gastrointestinal, and respiratory systems. Labor does that for humans, labor is a massage for baby's systems, squeezing out the amniotic fluid and preparing the lungs for breathing.
Touch continues after birth and becomes reciprocal when baby's sucking helps expel the placenta.
Touch goes together with feeling. "The word "feeling" has an interesting double meaning (and) is no accident - feeling and emotion are interrelated and stem from our earliest relationship to touch." Paraphrased from "Attached at the heart" - Barbara Nicholson, Lysa Parker

Every woman is like a flower 🌸...
She’s unique in her shape, color, smell, height, and she brightens up people just for being in her own special beauty and POWER!
I really saw this this past weekend in my Doula training, when we did an eye gazing practice where we had to eye gaze into three different women’s eyes for one minute at a time without speaking any words. Can you imagine? LOL it was quite challenging, because it was a practice and just holding space without trying to fix anything, without trying to speak or analyze, but just BEING. #holdingspace
After doing this eye gazing with three different women that day, I realized and saw the beautiful flowers that each one of them reminded me of. And I realize that women are like flowers in a beautiful flower garden. When working together they make the most beautiful diverse group of flower 🌹 garden to be adored, loved, and honored.
So what kind of flower are YOU? Comment below ☺️

I always tell my birth education students laughter can be a great tool to bring to your birth. I love this picture of my doula @monarchbabies
and my hubby @colinkelleyproductions
giggling in the kitchen. I can’t remember them laughing but I can remember the sound of the blender 😂 I didn’t laugh much during my birth but I cracked a couple jokes here and there...one about my baby missing being born on 4/20 by just a couple hours and one when I was pushing thinking how has my sister done this four times? 😳 Did you crack any jokes during labor? I would love to hear! #labor #birth #doula
I knew I would be headed to a birth the night of the @tinyfootprintsyyc
gala, because that’s the trend.
I did my hair and make up thinking maybe I’d make a little bit of the gala, but birth doesn’t wait.
So I attended a dear friends birth with a full face of makeup 💄 📷credit to @danhharp

Theres nothing quite as amazing as placentas. Yes the baby too. But the placenta is inspiration made into reality. Thanks to the sperm, the placenta is made. I always like to remind folk, the pregnancy is not only and all about babe but rather the parents journey and transformation as they gestate and later birth. More focus on parents is needed, for they do the hard work and are later rewarded with an amazing little person- no matter the outcome love. I am your doula.
Placenta Encpasulation is a God send. I have held and processed over 100 placentas in my 7 yrs of service. I stopped counting. But I never stop going all out for my clients. Nothing like getting your capsules and tinctures, wrapped in love and a bow. I am your doula. #iamyourdoula #thebronxdoula
In case you didnt know. Maybe your having a hard time accepting it. Women are not the only ones that can carry a baby to term and birth.
I am your doula.
- I remember being a young person and reading about a #transman
getting pregnant for the first time. While I struggled with my own genderidentity I still had no foundation for it. I had no point of reference. Now, as an openly #nonbinary
doula and birthworker I can look back on that with a lot of gratitude. I support all birthing people, regardless of age, race, gender, or orientation. 📷: @voteprochoice
Another round of MAPA is coming this October.
My training is NOT like other placenta classes. I teach from an inclusive, multi cultural perspective. It is both a lecture and hands on. No other PE training offers you Cultural competency, Inclusive person centered info, as well as perinatal and infant loss, bereavement. Your getting so much more than just touching placentas.
If your looking for that, then my class is not for you.
If you are working with or planning to work and provide care to a multi cultural community which is inclusive of the LGBTQI community- then common over and learn with me.
I am your doula.
