Re share : 📷 by @kchete77 and @natgeo .
Beautiful tradition in Latin America, the cuarentena, or quarantine, requires new mothers to rest while being cared for by relatives for some 40 days after childbirth. This ends with a mother-child herbal bath and massage, this photo by Karla Gachet is so touching, and shows a beautiful relationship not only between mother and child, but with this woman’s family - her village ♥️🌿
. .
What after childbirth care were you provided with? What self care strategies made your postpartum easier?

Bir Latin Amerika geleneği der ki;
Doğumdan sonra 40 gün boyunca sen dinlen, akrabaların sana hizmet etsin. Sen bebeğinle ilgilen.. 40 gün sonra bir arınma banyosu yaparsınız bebeğinle birlikte sonra arkasından bir de masaj.. Sonra artık kendi başınıza hayatınıza devam... Bildiğin bizdeki 40 çıkarma.. tek farkı bizde 40 gün boyunca “sormadan, yargılamadan hizmet edecek akraba bulmak” biraz sıkıntılı.. Bulanlara önerim; “dilinizi ısırın” 😂

How beautiful is this ceremony. ❤️ I love the Latin American tradition where the mother and baby are cared for by family for 40 days after birth. We could learn a thing or two from how other cultures respond to birth. Western culture has forgotten to let mother and baby rest and bond and expect so much of us so soon after a huge change for our bodies, minds, lives and souls. #Repost @natgeo (@get_repost)

The tradition, common throughout Latin America, requires new mothers to rest under the care of their relatives for some 40 days after childbirth.

As per the photographer, “this ceremony was prepared and guided by @doulajennysilva.” This photo was shot #onassignment for @natgeo with @ivankphoto.

Postpartum care is foreign to the American culture! Lille Landsby, along with many other amazing people, are trying to change that! It shows more strength to care for yourself after birth, then powering through. If we take this step in accepting postpartum care it will be better for our bodies, our minds, and our babies!

40 days of being cared for? One week and two days after having baby #3, I was home alone with three kids, age three and under. I’m thinking this practice is something we should adopt. Who’s with me?? 🙋🏼‍♀️ #Repost @natgeo with @get_repost

**SPIRITUAL MIDWIFERY by Ena May Gaskin ♡ This is & will always be my most treasured book. I read it during my first trimester, where I did not at all plan to become a Mother. Age 27 - in a brand new relationship, living in a crazy houseshare in London, working nights at a bar, zero roots in the ground where I was. Overwhelming fear. All the ideas I had about growing a baby in my womb, those somewhat unnatural apps I would read week to week, the unrealistic childbirth scenes in movies I took to be true...it all got turned on it's head reading this. I took the modern/western opinions and threw them all out ~ here I found ancient wisdom and feminine power in all it's glory. A method of simple, intuitive nurturing & growing. A deep knowing that we are born to birth and it can be done without ALL that fear. Connecting to that strong core & waving goodbye to the shadows of both mine and my ancesteral trauma. Breaking the cycle of suffering, starting a new cycle of pure love and connection. I learned early on to complain little & feel the over flowing gratitude for every single day of Pregnancy... consciously aware that my baby could feel every emotion tied to her presence. Equally aware that my experience would most likely be a reflection of myself and my inner dialogue. And so, what a magical 9 months it was. From that moment on I knew what kind of mother I wanted to be & I'd make damn sure I'd get there. I'm still journeying on, but so forever blessed that this was placed into my hands ♡

I can’t wait to give our baby the traditional gift of natural infant pottying AKA #eliminationcommunication. Our ancestors knew that babies desire to be clean, dry, and hygienic through the use of our sacred mossbags! In addition to our baby’s mossbag, we also intend to use the tophat potty made specially for babies. Plus tiny baby underwear are soooo cute. This is a huge adventure for us since we were raised in the world of diapers and never knew another way of life could be possible. Tlazocamati to my teacher @indigemama for helping to revitalize this way of life for our precious babies! #homebirth #traditionalbirth #indigenousbirth #infantpotty

✨Honor BIRTH
✨Honor BIRTHING MOTHERS
What is so special about this and the way I support birthing families, you might wonder?
I’ve had the pleasure of birthing all of my 5 children on my own and from it, have gained a conviction-filled, heart-led approach to my privileges as a birth worker.
Having attended @whapio_and_thematrona physiological doula course earlier this year enabled me to put my deeply embedded knowledge into “medical speak”.•
I know that homebirth isn’t for everyone but you know what?
We aren’t here as a species because hospitals were managing/processing births since the beginning of time. •
We are here because birthing women and the few men who truly honor and respect the sacred space and physiology of birth.
And I am here in this lifetime to IGNITE THAT WARRIOR MAMA in birthing mamas.
Ps ** check out my birth assistant #artemisfox on my back @mj_baby_carriers Fox print carrier 🤣😍😍😍😍

✨The sacred birthing space: In my comfort zone ✨
This mama-focused birth @steffi_joy that I had the honor of guiding was 3 months ago already and I’m really cherishing these awesome photos by @photostoriesbym
Too often women fear labor because they’ve been told and retold by countless people in white coats that the “normal” and “responsible” thing to do is have the baby in a hospital.
There is a place for hospitals but not for physiological events such as labor.
If the mother is healthy and having a pretty “regular” pregnancy, it is ABSOLUTELY safe to birth at home, with or without birthworkers, midwives or doulas.
With that said, THE BIRTHING MOTHER SHOULD DECIDE how they want to birth and educate themselves to the teeth about physiological birth.


I’m a birth worker who sees TREMENDOUS VALUE in supporting the birthing mother and father first and foremost.
As an unassisted/freebirth/primal mama, what I value THE MOST is respect for the mama.
It is my duty and privilege to assess the situation in the birth and stay attuned to the needs of mama and her support.
I honor this sacred work I do and call forth LOVING FIERCE FREQUENCIES to all pregnant mothers/folks in the WOMBIVERSE ❤️🔥🔥🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 @mj_baby_carriers check out my baby girl #artemisfox assisting me (jk sleeping) in your fox print carrier ❤️❤️#traditionalbirth #traditionalbirthworker #doula #sacredbirth #mamaledbirth #primalbirth #longbeach #homebirth #informedbirth #홈벌쓰 #교포 #교포둘라 #둘라 #집에서낳기

The way women should be treated after birth. How much time did you take to rest?
