The “fourth trimester” refers to the first three months of baby’s life. During this time babies can be very fussy because they miss your womb. They want that comfort back and this big world just isn’t as comfy as the dark, warm, quiet womb of yours. The best way to help baby is to mimic the womb. Lots of warm snuggles, being close, skin to skin, comfort nursing (is you breastfeed), and the mindset that you will be the only thing your baby wants for awhile. When you think about this you think about how hard it is for a mom to do anything else. The first three months of both my children’s lives I was just a stationary milk factory. I didn’t move from my spot on the couch much and once my husband went back to work I became a master at doing everything one handed. It was tough. This is why mamas need help!

Some ideas to help a new mom:
• Cook meals for her • Come to the house just so she can talk and feel a little human again • Help to dishes/laundry/etc. I heard one mama talk about how her best friend would come over and just sit on the couch and fold the laundry while mama nurses and help her sleeping baby.
• If mom is comfortable, come and watch baby for a few hours so she can get some peaceful sleep • Bring a care/breastfeeding basket over. 
Please add your ideas or things others did for you that helped you so much! ❤️ •~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•

  • "As her belly grew with her second child, streaks crept upwards across her taut skin.  Lamenting the change to her midwife, the wise woman interjected, confidently announcing that the streaks were simply “fire,” fire representing the fierce soul growing inside. Such foreshadowing was this proclamation, as the tiny being who left her blazing mark on her mama’s body remains a free-willed, fiery, unstoppable young girl.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love the flames that adorn this gorgeous mother’s belly. A badge of motherhood, a reminder of the incredible small being that she created. May her daughter never lose the fire that lives inside. May this mother feel proud of her amazing body and the children it grew."

  • Reposting this incredible visual and information from @breastfeeding.dietitian because  people need to know!
......................................
FEEDING ON DEMAND. Yep. I used cereal and blueberries to see the difference between expectations and reality of many breastfeeding moms. . . 
Were you told your baby should breastfeed every 2-3 hours? I was. Did you know that only came from figuring out how often feeding was needed for a baby to feed 8-12 times in a 24 hour period... So yes we APPROXIMATELY would like babies to feed AT LEAST 8-12 times, but the way it all plays out in a 24 hour period is very different for each baby. 
Reality: babies feed like the blueberries. Lots of feedings. Some small. Some big. Some close together. Some far apart. 
Babies do not feed like clockwork where every cereal (ahem.. feed) is spaced equally apart and the same size. You can relax if your otherwise healthy baby goes longer than 3 hours between a feed. You don’t need to think “you can’t still be hungry” and delay a feed if they are showing signs they want to feed earlier than 2 hours. 
Listen to your baby. Trust your instincts. Let go of the cookie cutter “ideal” and develop your own relationship that works for you and your baby.

  • It is always an incredible honor to be invited into a family's birthing space. It is always a heart-expanding experience. Earlier this week I had the honor of witnessing as a little girl was born right into her family's arms as they were just bursting at the seams with love, and I know that this particular morning will stay with me forever. Happy birthday little one!

  • Quality childbirth education is of vital importance... knowing what to expect can eliminate fear & anxiety. Access to up-to-date, unbiased information allows expecting parents to take charge of their birth experience and make the decisions that are best for themselves. 
Today marks the beginning of International Childbirth Education Week, January 25-31. I am honored to support expecting parents on their journey by offering childbirth classes. Knowledge, preparation and support can make all the difference. 
The next series of Evidence Based Birth® childbirth classes begins 2/23. Link to register in my bio or on the Events Page. ...................................................... Photo credit @childbirthed

  • Today we joined the Living Free Project for Painting with Friends @decipherbrewing .
.
This awesome #charlottesville group joins with veterans and their families to provide support and programs with the aim of “living free together.”
.
It was nice to be with this great group of people and enjoy some good local brews. We learned how to paint with acrylics and left with some beautifully decorated canvases our family will be sure to treasure!
.
Having been a military family ourselves, we recognize the unique circumstances and challenges military families often face. We offer discounts on doula services and childbirth education to honor those who are serving and have served.

  • I can’t believe January is halfway over!
.
If you’ve been thinking about joining a #BirthLanguages class, it’s not too late to sign up. We will be starting Sunday, February 2. Classes will meet at Black Belt Success Academy (the squishy mat is a welcome relief for pregnant bodies!)
.
It’s always a great time to connect with your partner, get to know other couples, and make sure you feel prepared for labor. Check out our Facebook page for more info!

  • Ever wonder if one photographer may be better for you than another?  Today, I lay it all out in a blog post about why I think there's one particular photographer for each person and what makes me unique as a newborn photographer.  So hop on over to my blog #linkinbio and find out what it's like to work with me!  Hint:  that's me in the photographer, completely in my element, loving on a new mama on her baby. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

💡 Is your placenta in your birth plan?💡 As most women do not consider their placenta apart of their birth plan, maybe it’s time you do. Have you ever wondered why the hospital wants to keep your placenta or is so adamant about you not taking your placenta home🤔🤔 They know exactly what I know and what I will teach you. 
There are multiple things you can do with your placenta:
✨plant
✨ placenta art
✨ ingest (placenta encapsulation, smoothies, or tinctures)

Let us know if you have any questions about these options in Central Virginia! We to talk about placentas! ♡ •~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~• #birth #baby  #doula #postpartumdoula

  • Have you heard of the Five Love Languages?
.
Just as different people express and receive love in different ways, women and couples experience birth differently.
.
We use Birth Languages as a framework to help couples understand what good coping in labor looks like. Partners learn to recognize which Birth Language is being spoken, and are given tools to support the mother as she uses it. This takes some of the guesswork out of labor support, and allows both parents to feel more confident and engaged in their baby’s birth.
.
What’s your Birth Language? Take the quiz to find out! (Link in bio)

  • Hey, look!  It's MEEEE!  After several freeeeezing hours outdoors and maaaany blurry shots later, my husband took this new headshot for me.  It's a bit comical how hard it was to get an image of me in focus, but, then again, photography feels pretty natural to me whereas, if I were to take up my husband's skill set of woodworking, I'd be doomed...and probably a bit injured.  Anyway, round of applause for the always supportive spouse!  And since I have this fancy new headshot, I thought it'd be a good time to share a bit about myself!

I'm Maggie, short for Margaret Anne.  I actually love endearing nicknames and, while I had a plethora of them growing up, nicknaming seems to have died out since making all my adult friends.  I was most commonly called Mags, which I adore, so don't be shy to try it out!  I'm an enneagram 2w1 and love all associated memes, but Meyers Briggs personalities never caught my attention (too many letters to remember--seriously, I have a screenshot of what I am on my phone because I can never remember). My current favorite food is Cabot's Seriously Sharp cheddar cheese and am almost always up for some late night nachos (and by late, I mean 8PM because I'm asleep by 9). I invest wholeheartedly into people and feel happiest when I'm plugged into my community and am connecting with people on a daily basis.  My need for connection has made being a stay-at-home, homeschooling parent challenging, because the adult-connection need doesn't always get met.  However, life has gotten a bit easier as my children have grown and, while I love everything about birth, I don't miss the baby stage in my own life.  Starting my own business breathed life back into me and I adore working with each one of my clients.  Photography fulfills my creative heart in ways I didn't know existed until a few years ago.  I bring my genuine joy of creating relationships into my craft and am honored to work with people during such tender times in their lives. 
I would LOVE to learn more about each of my followers.  I encourage you to leave a line or two about yourself--It can be goofy, serious, random...I love it all!

  • Placenta love happening here tonight ♡♡ The placenta is an amazing organ that the body creates, helps grow and sustain life in the womb, and provides bio available nutrients and hormones that can be consumed after birth!

Properties including:
♡ Prolactin and Human Placental Lactogen (stimulates milk production)
♡ Oxytocin (bonding, feel good, contracts uterus, heals wounds)
♡ Corticotropin Releasing Hormone (relieves stress, supports adrenals, fights depression)
♡ Progesterone (prepares mammories for lactation) ♡ Hemoglobin (transports oxygen throughout the body, increases iron stores) ♡ Placental Growth Hormone (promotes break down of stored fats, sending them to baby) ♡ Estrogen (increases uterine strength and prepares mammories for lactation)
♡ Phosphorus (aids digestion, hormone balance, cell repair, and nutrient utilization)
♡ Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (regulates metabolism) ♡ Cortisone (relieves inflammation, pain, and swelling) ♡ Urokinase Inhibiting Factor and Factor XIII (lessons bleeding, and promotes faster healing) ♡ Interferon (enhances immunity and inhibits virus reproduction)

I process placentas into capsules and tinctures following food safety guidelines. Ask me if it can help you. ~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~• #birth #baby  #doula #postpartumdoula

  • Y'all I can't stop laugh at this morning's post from @iheartguts 😂🤣 It's no secret that I (Carlie - @wellroundedwomancare @the_lady_lazarus_ ) love placentas. ♡♡ On this #thankfulthursday , I'm grateful to ba able to process placentas for mamas for a variety of reasons. What did you do with your placenta?

Placenta consumption is a common part of postpartum  healing in many cultures. Benefits include more stable moods, increased milk supply, and decreased healing time. I process placentas into capsules and tinctures following food safety guidelines. Ask me if it can help you.

It can allow us space to care for ourselves without overwhelming our time or headspace.

⁣⁣
The "letting go" is big. I talk about this concept a lot with my clients, both mothers and other people going through life transitions.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It's a lot like the monkey bars if you think about it. In order to keep moving forward we have to let go of one bar and reach forward to what comes next. And for that moment when we're just holding on with one hand, it's scary. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The motherhood transition is like this. We know a baby is coming to live with us. We know what we've seen of other mothers. But what will our personal experience actually be like? How will we “succeed” and learn?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Feelings around this transition are normal. Sometimes it shows up during pregnancy as fear. Sometimes it shows up during the early days after birth as regret and grief. Whatever feelings you experience, just know that transitions are hard even if they are wished for a wanted. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
How was your experience of transitioning from your known life before kids to the unknown life as a new mom? How did you handle this transition mentally and emotionally?⁣⁣

  • On this #selfcaresunday , we remind you to take care of you. We're probably the worst people for doing too much and we both have multiple kids so finding time for self care is hard. Even if all you can mange today is a few minutes of stillness, we hope you find it ♡ ~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~• #birth #baby  #doula #postpartumdoula

  • Reposting this incredible visual and information from @breastfeeding.dietitian because  people need to know!
......................................
FEEDING ON DEMAND. Yep. I used cereal and blueberries to see the difference between expectations and reality of many breastfeeding moms. . . 
Were you told your baby should breastfeed every 2-3 hours? I was. Did you know that only came from figuring out how often feeding was needed for a baby to feed 8-12 times in a 24 hour period... So yes we APPROXIMATELY would like babies to feed AT LEAST 8-12 times, but the way it all plays out in a 24 hour period is very different for each baby. 
Reality: babies feed like the blueberries. Lots of feedings. Some small. Some big. Some close together. Some far apart. 
Babies do not feed like clockwork where every cereal (ahem.. feed) is spaced equally apart and the same size. You can relax if your otherwise healthy baby goes longer than 3 hours between a feed. You don’t need to think “you can’t still be hungry” and delay a feed if they are showing signs they want to feed earlier than 2 hours. 
Listen to your baby. Trust your instincts. Let go of the cookie cutter “ideal” and develop your own relationship that works for you and your baby.

  • It is always an incredible honor to be invited into a family's birthing space. It is always a heart-expanding experience. Earlier this week I had the honor of witnessing as a little girl was born right into her family's arms as they were just bursting at the seams with love, and I know that this particular morning will stay with me forever. Happy birthday little one!

  • Doulas know that a childbirth class can help you prepare for birth and postpartum in many ways, including helping you decrease your fear and anxiety and increase your chances of having a vaginal birth. 
I'm thrilled to be able to offer the Evidence Based Birth® childbirth class to expecting parents in the Charlottesville area! The next session starts 2/23!

  • Posted @withrepost • @cvadoulas We're in LOVE with this cordkeepsake 😍. Look at those vessels that carried nutrients to baby in utero! The rest of this placenta is off to nourish mom postpartum. Have questions about #placentaconsumption? Let us know!

The placenta is an amazing organ that the body creates, helps grow and sustain life in the womb, and provides bio available nutrients and hormones that can be consumed after birth!

Properties including:
♡ Prolactin and Human Placental Lactogen (stimulates milk production)
♡ Oxytocin (bonding, feel good, contracts uterus, heals wounds)
♡ Corticotropin Releasing Hormone (relieves stress, supports adrenals, fights depression)
♡ Progesterone (prepares mammories for lactation) ♡ Hemoglobin (transports oxygen throughout the body, increases iron stores) ♡ Placental Growth Hormone (promotes break down of stored fats, sending them to baby) ♡ Estrogen (increases uterine strength and prepares mammories for lactation)
♡ Phosphorus (aids digestion, hormone balance, cell repair, and nutrient utilization)
♡ Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (regulates metabolism) ♡ Cortisone (relieves inflammation, pain, and swelling) ♡ Urokinase Inhibiting Factor and Factor XIII (lessons bleeding, and promotes faster healing) ♡ Interferon (enhances immunity and inhibits virus reproduction ~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~• #birth #baby  #doula #postpartumdoula
