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! ❤️ •~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•~•

  • During Fourth Trimester Prep Sessions we do a lot of talking about transitioning into your new family and what that might look like, what you might need, & how you might feel. ⁣
⁣
I always tailor the individual sessions to your needs, because not everyone has the same needs and concerns. ⁣
⁣
For those of you waiting on your first babies, what part of postpartum are you most concerned about? ⁣
⁣
For those of you who have already welcomed your babies into your lives, what did you find to be the most helpful thing anyone said or did for you? ⁣

Sometimes, you don't feel like you right away. That's ok. Having a new baby changes you - as a person and as a parent. Whether it's your first baby or your firth, life is different after. ⁠
#mentalhealthmonday #giveyourselfsomegrace⁠
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~⁠
⁠
⁠
"Someday I’ll be all me again.⁠
⁠
Someday I’ll start to read grown up books that interest and challenge me instead of books about finding little monsters and counting apples.⁠
⁠
Someday I’ll dye my hair regularly and take care of my nails.⁠
⁠
Someday I’ll choose my clothing as more of a fashion statement instead of knotting my shirt over a stain and wearing a skirt because all my pants are at the bottom of the hamper.⁠
⁠
Someday I’ll quit using so much dry shampoo because I’ll have time to shower every night.⁠
⁠
Someday I’ll spend hours in my craft room filling my soul while creating new things.⁠
⁠
Someday the size in my pants may be a smaller number.⁠
⁠
Someday I’ll drive a car that I like instead of a van that’s practical.⁠
⁠
But right now isn’t that someday, because today my littles pull me in every direction,⁠
⁠
“Mommy change my diaper”⁠
“Mommy I need a snack”⁠
“Mommy my legs hurt!”⁠
“Mommy he hit me!”⁠
⁠
I give bits of myself to them all day. I give them what they need.⁠
⁠
I still know who I am, and I still feel whole. I’m just a little bit more mommy than I am anything else right now.⁠
⁠
As time passes and my littles gradually turn into bigs they’ll inevitably start to give me back the little bits of myself that I’ve given to them. And as parenthood goes accepting them back will be more painful than giving them ever was.⁠
⁠
Someday I’ll be all me again, but right now I’m ok with being mostly mommy."⁠

  • FACT: Nobody owns your body! FACT: You get to make decisions that are best suited to your health and wellness which are two things YOU know best! FACT: You have the final say about what treatments you choose and refuse from medical professionals. (Do all these “facts” make me sound like Dwight Schrute yet? Because that’s what I was going for.) 👋🏼 My husband took this cheesy picture of me for my new website which is UP and running today! I’m so excited! It’s still a work in progress like all things are. But... check it out if you have the time! 💋

💡 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

  • We think of birth as a marathon and it’s true, but I often remind my clients that the marathon only begins after 9 long months of supporting the life of two bodies. Keeping your heart beating while supporting another beating heart. Building a new organ to support tiny bones and forming the sweet face of a new being. Creating new tissue to produce milk to sustain this life when it is ready to join the world outside.
This time is important too. It’s okay not to love it, but if we treat our pregnancy as a part of the process and not a means to an end we set ourselves up for a better birth and postpartum.

How can we physically support this body as it does this sacred work? 
How can we appreciate this body when it feels unfamiliar to us? 
How would you speak to this body if it belonged to someone you love? •Beautiful art by @miaohki

“On almost any given morning during the winter I would rather sleep until after the sun has been up for at least a few minutes. I would prefer to stay under the covers snuggling and drinking hot tea. The winter makes me want to let things grind to a halt, to hibernate, and say, “wake me up when the world starts turning green again.” ⁣
⁣
These aren’t how my mornings go though. Most days I’m up before the sun having been awoken by some less than gentle action of the formerly sleeping toddler beside me. Today the sound of a footie pajama zipper going up and down  and gentle repeated elbowing to my back were my alarm”⁣

  • 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

  • “My partner says that we don’t need to hire a doula because they will be there. They want to be the one supporting me in my labor”⁣
⁣
Worry over partner replacement is such a common concern. The truth is, this photo is a great example of what doula support looks like a lot of the time. ⁣
⁣
We are not your main support person. Don’t get me wrong, we 100% can be, but if you have a birth partner in the room with you, it’s our goal to make them your main support person (as much as they want to be). ⁣
⁣
The fact is that doulas are support for partners too. This starts from our first meeting. I love when birth partners come to our initial consultation. This enables everyone to be on the same page and comfortable with each other. After all, we will be spending a lot of time together. ⁣
⁣
During our prenatal visits I’m making sure that I’m educating partners about options and interventions just as much. Partners have wishes and concerns too! When it’s time to learn comfort techniques for managing the sensations and intensity of labor, it’s the partner I’m showing a lot of the things to since they will be the first line of support on birth day.⁣
⁣
When we are focusing on prepping for the fourth trimester during that prep session, I’m making sure that you are talking about all of yours and their needs and concerns. After all, the partner is going to have a different experience as the one supporting both (or all) of you through postpartum. ⁣
⁣
During labor, we are there to remind partners of comfort techniques, to eat, to rest, to tell you how amazing you’re doing, to help you stay nourished, and to help remind you of your goals. Sometimes we are there to give them space to be nervous, to be scared, to process the enormity of the work that you’re doing. Sometimes we anchor them as they anchor you. ⁣

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • A card of affirmation for a new soon-to-be mother heading into labor in just a few short weeks. This was something I had never done before, or really even thought of. Not being a mother I didn’t know anything about affirmation cards, but y’all these are such a wonderful idea! No they aren’t going to help her physically giving birth but the mental and emotional aspect of birth will hopefully be smoother because of these. Each card in the set is different and each has its own painting. One day this little girl will be able to look back and see these affirmation cards that her strong and capable mother used to welcome her into the world and y’all that makes my heart melt 💕 .
.
If you or anyone you know would like a set of affirmation cards for the hospital or for when labor begins at hone, I would love to make more! Either shoot me a message on here or head to our website and fill out a custom order request 💌 .

  • Usually at about 9 or 10 the light shines into this sun-catcher and rainbows are cast throughout my bedroom.
Today it’s overcast, but if I look close, can still see the rainbows inside bouncing around waiting for the sun to strike.
.
When we become a mother, sometimes it feels like the sun-catcher on a cloudy day. The identity of “mom” seems to overshadow all the other facets of who we are.
.
But those parts of us are still in there, bouncing around, waiting for their time in the sun. .
Eventually, the clouds of new motherhood will pass and you’ll find those familiar facets of yourself again, you may discover entirely new ones. As time goes on you start bringing those other pieces of you back into your life: career, hobbies, connections, interests... Motherhood becomes just one of your many, brilliant facets.
.
So, if you’re in the new motherhood fog, don’t worry, the fog will lift, the parts of you that shined before are still there, still important, and they’ll still shine when the time is right.
.
If you’re about to embark on motherhood, remind yourself you won’t loose these pieces of you, when you’re ready for them, they’ll be there.
.
Sometimes it just takes a little time for the sun to break through. ☀️💎🌈

  • ✨Everyone's birth plan is different and different scenarios can require different outcomes. Let's shoot for the stars, but I would never gauge your birth by checking off a list. I consider your birth a success if you went in well educated and knowing your options, can look back at it with joy and peace, know that your voice was heard, and feel that you and your partner were supported unconditionally.✨-@themindfulbirth
