  • Babies begin to absorb language when they are inside the womb during the last 10 weeks of pregnancy. Your voice is already shaping their understanding of the world.
Speaking gently to your baby can have an effect that you couldn’t imagine. So speak to them as if they are the wisest, kindest, most beautiful humans on earth starting now. For what they hear is what they believe and eventually what they will become. 🌸

  • Spicy Butternut Squash Soup - I made this over the weekend and planned to take a pretty picture of it in a bowl to finish the whole pictorial but instead got too excited each time and ate it without the photo. 🤣 Anyhow, it’s a great Dairy Free, Gluten Free and Vegan treat during a Whole30. Made for a crowd that loved it! Day 22! 
Butternut Squash Soup
by Johnann Johnson

2 T olive oil
1 onion, diced
2 celery ribs, thin-sliced
2 carrots, thin sliced
5 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 - 1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp cumin
1 Medium Butternut Squash, peeled and cubed
48 oz Veggie Broth (approx.)
2 cans tomatoes, diced with green chilis

Optional addition: Sour Cream, Greek Yogurt or coconut yogurt. 
In a large soup pot sweat onion, celery, and carrots in olive oil until onions are clear. 
Add spices and garlic, saute until spices are fragrant (2-3 minutes). Add squash and enough broth to cover. 
Bring just to a boil then cook at a simmer for about 45 minutes or until squash is easily pierced by a fork. 
Stir in canned tomatoes. Simmer for 10 minutes. 
Using an immersion blender (or put in a blender in batches) process until fairly smooth. 
Stir in additional broth to create soup consistency that you enjoy, heat through. (Options: Add a swirl of sour cream or yogurts to make richer and if too spicy.) #happyandwell

  • Voici des nouvelles du projet "Nous les Enfants du Monde" a une nouvelle collaboratrice, Sally Tshikuna, son rôle est d'optimiser les réseaux sociaux de l’asbl (Page Facebook, site internet, Instagram).
Elle boostera nos canaux de communication et nous permettra une visibilité plus accrue, mais cela ne s’arrête pas là ... Elle organisera également des évènements à thème, ou pas, en faveur de l’asbl.

Pour finir, ambassadrice de la marque Lyriange (produits bien-être, de phytothérapie donc à base de plantes qui aident à soigner certains maux), elle en organisera des ateliers et démos dont une partie des bénéfices sera pour l'asbl, les mardi & jeudi après-midi à 14h et le vendredi, samedi ou dimanche.

Trois extraordinaires nouvelles à venir également, je n'arrive pas à croire que je tiens ma langue, juste merci à la vie, à Dieu, à l’univers, énorme gratitude également à ma belle-mère et sa sœur pour la bonne nouvelle et l’opportunité extraordinaire qu’elles ont apportées dans le projet. 
Promis fin février nous vous dirons tout. 
Pour finir un jeu concours se met en place pour du matériel pédagogique Montessori, soyez vigilants. www.nouslesenfantsdumonde.be  #nouslesenfantsdumonde #crechebilingue #maternellebilingue #coachperinatal #doula #educationbienveillante #entreprendreautrement #partenariat

  • @birthingfromwithin: "Keeping the intensity of birth real. 'So often women have confessed to me after their births that they feel they have "done it wrong" because they became vocal or felt out of control during birth. It makes me so sad to hear when women feel this way! Almost every unmedicated birth I have attended, mom has used vocalizations and movement and all sorts of coping mechanisms to get her baby into her arms. There is nothing wrong with that!!!! But often there is a feeling in the natural birth community that if you just trust your body and relax that baby will just slip out easily. Sometimes this may be the case, but usually not'. Prepare yourself to do whatever you have to to bring your baby earthside. There is no right and wrong, and stressing about how you 'aren't coping well' just because you feel the need to roar while pushing or moan during contractions is counterproductive and will keep you from feeling like the powerful warrior you are.' @renatapennafotopoesia

Did making noise and moving help you during your labor and birth? What kinds of noise and movement helped you the most?

  • Muchas veces en los #acompañamientos que he realizado como #doula y en el compartir con mis #madresengestacion sale la duda sobre ¿cual es el rol de papa?👨‍👩‍👦 Partiendo de una realidad que muchas veces lo aleja, lo aparta y no le permiten vivir una #paternidadconsciente.🌅No es porque no lo desee sino porque no se lo permite. Todavia existen lugares de nacimiento donde a veces el #padre no puede estar presente en el #parto. Omitiendo su #rol que es crucial y extremadamente importante. 
Laura Gutman nos comenta que el padre es el #sosten que contiene y apoya a la madre. Y ¿que significa sostener?: ⭐Facilitar la fusion #mamaybebe y defenderla. 🌟Defender la fusion  del mundo exterior, apabullandos por consejos, las criticas, los sermones que circula  acerca de lo que "hay que hacer". Resguardar el nido. ⭐Apoyar activamente la introspeccion permitir que la madre explore la apertura de su sombra vivenciando con libertad e intimidad el florecimiento de su madre interior.
🌟Proteger. ⭐Aceptar y amar a su mujer. Lo esencial en este periodo es no cuestionar las decisiones de la madre que surgen como torbellidos incontrolables, ya que responde a un viaje interior en el cual esta embarcada y no tiene el control. Es tiempo de aceptacion y observacion. Es tiempo contemplacion sobre como suceden las cosas. Es el tao.  Extraido de unos de mis libros mas usado en mi camino por la maternidad y que me hizo entender/me. 🦋La maternidad y sus sombras. Ahora levante la mano si deseas mas informacion como esta y hacemos un #instagramlive 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️#miercolesdecrianzaconalma#paternidadsagrada#mamafeliz#papasosten#maternidadsagrada#lamaternidadylassombras#criaconapego

Сегодня опубликую текст, который мне отзывается. Это Ежедневник Мелоди Битти, который часто дает мне пищу для размышлений.
⠀
"«Нести за себя ответственность» означает - нести ответственность за свои желания и нужды, осознавая, что они являются нормальными. Учиться прислушиваться к себе, учиться слушать себя - это искусство.
⠀
Нужна практика. Мы можем использовать нашу способность угадывать, чего хотят другие и в чём они нуждаются, применив это умение к себе.
⠀
Что внутри нас указывает нам на то, что мы хотим, и что нам нужно? Что могло бы нам помочь почувствовать себя лучше? Что нам говорят наши чувства? Наше тело? Наш интеллект? Наша интуиция? Зададим себе вопрос, затем внимательно прислушаемся - мы услышим ответ. Мы мудрее, чем думаем, и можно доверять себе.
⠀
То, что мы хотим, и то, что нам нужно, имеет значение. Это важно и это обосновано. Мы можем учиться определять, что мы хотим, в чем нуждаемся, и быть терпеливыми по отношению к себе, пока мы учимся.
⠀
Сегодня я подумаю о том, что я хочу и что мне нужно. Я буду считаться с собой."

  • Hace tiempo que está idea me ronda en la cabeza. Me encantaría saber tu opinión 🤔
.
¿El parto es un producto médico?
¿Por qué algo tan humano, animal y natural como dar a luz se ha estandarizado? 🤔🤔
.
Abramos el debate 😉

  • •LA VOZ Y EL PARTO•
👉🏻Este recurso puede ser utilizado como acompañamiento para aliviar y suavizar dolores llevando la atención y pensamientos hacia el plano físico y emocional.
👉🏻El sonido emitido actúa por vibración sobre el cuerpo físico y se distribuye promoviendo descarga de tensiones, flexibilizando rigideces y favoreciendo la conexión con el espacio interno. 👉🏻De este modo, es posible que el cuerpo transite mejor cada contracción y que esta actúe favorablemente sobre el cuello del útero.
❗La duración del sonido emitido debe responder a cada mujer. Acompañando el ritmo cardíaco y la posibilidad de respiración completa (intercostal)
✓Te dejo una breve práctica para hacer en casa:
🌟Primero que nada te invito a que te dediques unos minutos para vos:
🙏🏻Elegí un breve momento del día que puedas dedicarte a vos.
🙏🏻Prepará tu espacio: puede ser con un aroma relajante que te agrade, usá una playlist que te ayude a relajar, desconectar y llevar la atención a vos misma.
🙏🏻Suavizá las luces o abrí tu ventana al sol y al aire fresco.
🌟Ahora sí: sentada con la espalda apoyada, si lo necesitas. Conectá con el aire que entra y sale de tu nariz soltando el peso del cuerpo a la tierra con cada exhalación. Dejá que tus pensamientos aparezcan y se vayan sin juzgar ni analizar. Cuando sientas que tu respiración se armoniza y estés lista comenzá con la visualización.
🌟Dirigí tu atención desde la boca con la intención de recorrer el espacio interno de la garganta, del cuello, del tórax, del diafragma, del abdomen, de la pelvis hasta el piso pélvico.
Por ese espacio interno se emitirá la O y podés visualizar esa O como pequeños anillos que progresan por ese espacio hasta salir por el canal de nacimiento en el piso pélvico.
🌟Visualizando con dirección y precisión hacia la salida:
🖐🏻Decí cinco O en silencio.
🖐🏻Luego cinco O con sonido suaves.
🖐🏻Por último cinco O con sonido fuertes.

  • Today is the 47th Anniversary of #RoeVWade. This powerful offering from @wetestify & @plannedparenthood demonstrates the necessity of centering the stories of folks who have had abortions, and why abortion access matters. This is why I’m a full-spectrum #doula. Everyone deserves love and care during their abortion experience. 
#Repost: 
Everyone loves someone who had an abortion. Our new film with @plannedparenthood interviews four people who had abortions about their experiences and lives. Watch the trailer of Ours to Tell by Academy Award-winning director Rayka Zehtabchi, narrated by actress @NatashaRothwell, with a call for compassion and protection. Every single person deserves to be in charge of their own bodies and tell their own stories. Everyone who has abortions deserves to be loved.⠀

Why cloth diapers?
🌸 💰 💴 💵 💰 (get your first set by contacting Kristen to see how TCO can help)

  • In a culture that is overly obsessed with “doing” and productivity, to slow down and do less is an act of self care.

Know when to slow down, listen to your body, heart and mind and DON’T FEEL GUILTY ABOUT DOING LESS! .

  • I thought I'd @instagram my way into introducing myself as a doula. Storytime friends, let's go. 
____
Here's my first entry into the doula world, watching my niece, Collins, be born. It was a transformative experience. I was beside my sister as she struggled through physical and mental roadblocks to push out this healthy, wide-eyed wonder of a baby. I peered, in awe, as Collins' head crowned, her dark black hair greeting the world first. I was there when Maria touched her daughter’s head for the first time as a mom. They looked like they had known each other, they looked like old friends. I observed her midwife's calm, commanding presence (she'd later help deliver my son) as she encouraged her in the final moments of birth to listen to her body. I watched the first seconds of my brother-in-law's new life as a dad. How do you walk away from this experience and not become a different person? I knew that something shifted in my world that day. It would take a few years, a couple miscarriages, a lifetime of tears and a whole lot of love before I figured out what to do with the new person I became on this day. More soon.

  • Debo acostar a mi bebé  boca abajo?  Pues no se recomienda ya que aumenta la probabilidad del síndrome de muerte súbita del lactante (muerte de cuna). Esto no significa que lo tengas en tu pecho durmiendo. Va más enfocado a cuando lo dejas en su cuna durmiendo aquí es donde aumenta la probabilidad de la muerte de cuna. ¿Me desvelo por que mi bebé se vira boca abajo?

Cuando los infantes ya se voltean solo, tienen la madures suficiente para que ya no aya muerte súbita.

  • So far this year has felt really busy in all the right ways. I’ve assisted two births, started running again and survived my first two step lesson. Most importantly, I’m learning that there is always time for the things that you love, you just have to make it.

  • Endometriosis affects approximately 176 million people with a uterus worldwide and affects 1 in 10 during the reproductive years. The tissue that lines the uterus called endometrium ends up grows outside of the uterus. It behaves in the same way the endometrium tissue works that lines the uterus by thickening and bleeding just like it does during a menstrual cycle. ⠀⁣⠀
⠀⁣⠀
I was never diagnosed endometriosis, but I struggled a great deal with abnormal amounts of pain and bleeding from age 11-28. I ended up going under surgery seven years ago and they discovered that my fallopian tubes were crisscrossed and attached to my uterus. They had to remove all the scar tissue to free my fallopian tubes and uterus.⠀⁣⠀
⠀⁣⠀
It is so important for us to educate ourselves and understand our bodies and not just try and push past things. Being able to know the difference of what is normal/healthy and what is abnormal/unhealthy. Many of us try and be tough and minimize things. I did that for years, but if I hadn’t finally listened to my body and went and saw a specialist I probably would have never got pregnant and had my beautiful daughter. ⁣⠀

  • 🌿 Je n'ai pas réussi 🌿
Si vous saviez comme elle fait mal à mon cœur de doula et de femme cette petite phrase que j'entends et que je lis si souvent. Je n'ai pas réussi à accoucher naturellement. Je voulais une naissance physiologique mais je n'ai pas réussi. Je voulais faire sans péridurale mais je n'ai pas réussi. Tant de choses qui me submergent quand une femme prononce ces mots. Faites défiler le texte pour le savoir.

  • This is Queen Elizabeth I, aka the Virgin Queen. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
In her late 20's she developed smallpox, leaving her otherwise unmarred face scarred. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Queen Elizabeth was revered for her beauty, glamour, and flawless skin, so she began to cover her pockmarks with venetian ceruse - a 16th-century cosmetic and skin whitener made with water, vinegar, and lead. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Yes, lead. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
During the Renaissance period, fair, pale skin was considered aristocratic and upper class, a reflection that you did not have to labor in the fields. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It's likely that this near-constant exposure to lead contributed to her death at 69. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
For centuries - since the dawn of time -  we have been putting our health at risk in the name of beauty. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The global cosmetics industry, which both caters to and dictates cultural beauty trends generated $507 billion dollars in 2018 and is estimated to reach $758 billion by 2025.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
According to the FDA, the current law (last updated in 1938) "does not require cosmetic products and ingredients, other than color additives, to have FDA approval before they go on the market...⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Neither the law nor FDA regulations require specific tests to demonstrate the safety of individual products or ingredients. The law also does not require cosmetic companies to share their safety information with FDA." (FDA website)⁠⠀
⁠⠀
When folks say that the ingredients in cosmetics have been "rigorously" tested, this is false. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Many ingredients have been tested to assure there is no acute, immediate harm (ie, blistering, rash, etc), but these still happen - and when they do, companies are not even required to report this to the FDA. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Currently, personal care products contain thousands of ingredients - 10,000 to be more precise. Certainly, not all of them are harmful, but sadly, many of them are linked to serious health issues. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The beauty industry is the wild-west. The Cosmetic Ingredient Review Panel or the CIR is an industry organization that self-regulates (and not very well). ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
This week I'll be sharing some important info on this industry, along with my absolute favorite line of skincare & make-up! ⁠
