Back to the game. 2 Boobs and a Lie is like 2 Truths and a Lie. Read the statement and decide whether it's truth or myth.
Breastfeeding is an important part of the postpartum stage but many women don't meet their breastfeeding goals due to inaccurate information and lack of support.
This game is bound to change that.

Presale ends on Tuesday so don't blink or the opportunity will be gone!
Difícil de describir en una palabra como nos retaba Lupe hacerlo al finalizar el Taller de hoy... pero creo que la que más podría acercarse es INSPIRADOR.
Un verdadero placer recibir tan solo una embarrada del recorrido a lo largo de tantos años de tradición en México del uso del rebozo en el cuidado Perinatal:
La sabiduría ancestral de la partera Maura Pérez, traspasada a lo largo de 6 generaciones.
Más de 43 años de conocimiento y experiencia de @guadalupe.trueba usando el rebozo en su labor como educadora Perinatal y Doula
El privilegio de tener de compañera de aula a @nuriavivesanatomia.
Y por si fuera poco... un grupo integrado por mujeres ávidas de aprender como esponjas lo máximo posible, para llevarlo a la práctica en su invaluable y preciosa labor: en maternidades y hospitales (en su mayoría públicos 😯) y en sus clases.
Qué más se podría pedir?
Posiblemente sólo una cosa: más y más horas ☺️☺️☺️.
Childbirth education has been shown to reduce fear and anxiety for birthing families and to improve outcomes. Sign up for one of our comprehensive Lamaze childbirth classes today! These are not lecture based classes where you’ll be falling asleep from boredom (but maybe a quick nap during our relaxation and breathing portion 😉). Our educators really know how to teach and engage with participants - using the best evidence available and drawing on their experience and insight as doulas in the DMV. We have classes throughout the month at four different locations in MD DC and VA #lamaze#dcbirthdoulas#birthclass#childbirtheducation
Fetal station refers to where the presenting part is in your pelvis.
The Presenting Part -
It is the part of the baby’s head that leads the way through the birth canal. Most often it’s the baby’s head, but it can be sometimes the buttocks or feet or shoulders too.
Ischial spines -
These are bony points on the mothers pelvis. Normally the ischial spines are the narrowest part of the pelvis.
0 station -
This is when the baby’s head is even with ischial spines. The baby is said to be “engaged” when the largest part of the baby’s head has entered the pelvis.
If the presenting part lies above the ischial spine, it is reported as -1 to -3.
If the presenting part is lower to the ischial spine, which usually is in labor in Indian Moms, it is reported as +1 to +3 during the birth.
Indian Moms usually experience labor signs after 38th week of Pregnancy, unless they are being induced or have their bag of waters broken before time due to certain reasons. Engagement of Baby’s head can even happen in labor if not happened before.
Depending on the internal examinations that happen with the doctor, station is reported and further course of action is expected.
In the winter months, these #Lamaze organic cotton Sleep 'N Plays will keep #baby cozy and comfy all through the day. Shop for them on Amazon, Target or Buy Buy Baby. @LamazeOrganicBaby
Towards the end of pregnancy with my first son, Kobe, I was feeling quite defeated. Idk why people think it’s a good idea to share their horrific birth stories and experiences of failed breastfeeding attempts to emotional, scared pregnant women.
Like please just smile and say congratulations. It’s so unhelpful and frankly inappropriate. Just not the right time. (Let me stop. Can you tell I get worked up about it? lol)
Anyway… I was feeling defeated and then I met a woman who asked me about my birth plans. I told her I was planning a water birth at a birth center. To my surprise she smiled and said, “Yes! You can do it. I had a natural birth and it was great.” Even among the 10s of traumatic stories, it only took a few positive ones to encourage me. That along with a clear understanding of the natural process (I took 12 weeks of birth classes too) empowered me to make different choices than most and advocate for myself. (Hospital classes will not give you a clear understanding of the NATURAL PROCESS. It’ll give you a clear understanding of the PATIENT PROCESS.) That’s why we do this work, right?
To give women back their voices and empower them to decide what’s best for them and their babies. To help them work with their providers,not take orders from their providers.
If you are passionate about helping women have safe, calm and trauma-free births, you need to get your own Birth Class in a Box. You can gift it to a client or use it as a teaching tool and lead a class with it.

Your clients will thank you for saving them money and 12 weeks!

The power in our hands to help, support, love, heal is amazing. Does it even make you wonder how many people are now using their hands to assist others in the world?
So many times we hear the bad, the scary, the ugly, the HURT hands can cause, but I don't believe that is the MAJORITY.
We have hands, each of us, how do you use yours? Aren't they wonderful? The soothing power that the gentle hand grasp and the hip press in this picture is just beautiful! 📸: @crystaljessup
