Today.. November 16th is a very special day for me! ..
The beginning of my journey of being a traditional birth worker.. .
.
As It was through my own personal birth story.. that guided me to be who I am today.
.
Since birth.. We are here with a purpose.. & life takes us through many journeys to find what that purpose is. .
Traveling through many journeys.. Not understanding my real purpose in life.. until I was 15 years old.. when I started researching my own herstory! .
.
I remember always feeling like my spirit has been here before.. I remember looking at native books & seeing my reflection in those pictures! .
.
At age 20 I entered my first #sweatlodge #ceremony .
.
My real teacher.. my guider.. #tatehuari and #thesmokingmirror .
.
Yes even tough my first chapter of life was traumatic.. the rest of my life didn’t have to be. .
As I peeled the layers.. little by little.. the doors to Birth work & woman’s health open up more easily. . & now her I am as @doulajennysilva .
.
Life has many beginnings & many ends!!!!! .
πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹ .
Embracing this new solar cycle of Life.. as I shed the old me.. & #rebirth myself again. .

38 weeks pregnant and feeling super awesome!
Granted it’s taking me a bit more time to walk up a hill I used to be able to run up, but other than that, this has been the easiest most comfortable pregnancy I could have ever imagined! .
.
So excited to meet our Baby Leafar soon!!! πŸ–€ .
.
*before you comment, yes, I already know I look like I’m about to pop and no, I’m not having twins. Happy Sabbath, everyone! πŸ–€ - @thekatvond

Birth is so beautiful! .
.
To Birth new life is so powerful.. .
.
To birth with gentleness is even more powerful! .
.
Each Birth has its own unique ceremony.. but home births have this extra magic of love that can simply be felt.. just by the loving supportive words.. you hear in this video.. πŸ™ŒπŸ½ .
.
Love how supportive & yet hands off Midwife Marea @restore_midwifery supports & guides here new birthing parents. πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ’•πŸ™ŒπŸ½
.
.
Love how this little one had a nuchal hand presentation.. & how you can clearly see.. how much our babies also work with each surge to turn themselfs & push themselfs out of our birth canal naturally! .
.
This is something that comes naturally to both mother & baby.
so Intuitive! .
.
just keep breathing.. .
.
just keep in your ceremony.. .
.
trust the process.. .
.
our bodies & babies know exactly what to do... πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™πŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™πŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸ½

β€œMY SURGES CANNOT BE STRONGER THAN ME, BECAUSE THEY ARE ME”
.
This is a popular one for labour and birth! Remind yourself of this!
as your surges grow in strength.
.
Your body can’t do something that is greater than you can handle ! .
.
Trust your body is working hard and knows what to do.. focus on relaxing and getting in your birthing zone using all of your hypnobirthing toolkit!
.
And remember, you’ve got this πŸ™ŒπŸ½

MATRESCENE πŸŒ€βœ¨πŸ¦‹βœ¨πŸŒ€
.
.
The transformation into motherhood is not a 2D occurrence and does not occur simply at the scene of the birth.
.
.
Motherhood is intergenerational. πŸ™πŸΎβœŠπŸΎ
How our grandmothers and mothers were mothered sets a woman up while she herself is in utero! πŸŒ€to commence the journey and continue the matrilineage. .
.
Whether or not a woman has children - as a child she is exposed to all the subtle and not so subtle societal norms, expectations and pressures relating to being a woman and what it means to be a mother!
She continues to receive subconscious programming while she plans her family, conceives her child, carries her baby in her womb and brings new life into the world. πŸ¦‹
.
.
Through pregnancy and birth, she experiences massive biological changes to the very core of her physical being, via a shifting hormonal landscape, and a reorganisation of β€œinformation gathering” receptors (and also via mechanisms not yet discovered ) she begins her transformation. πŸ¦‹
.
.
All her ideas and subconscious programming about motherhood blend with her hopes and dreams about the future. .
These often collide with the reality of circumstance, creating an existential dissonance in the process.
.
The changes, the collision, the adjustment… is why she needs her village.
βœ¨πŸ™πŸΎβœ¨πŸ™πŸΎβœ¨πŸ™πŸΎβœ¨πŸ™πŸΎβœ¨βœ¨ A new mother can feel more than she has ever felt before.
To expand herself in a way to accommodate her new wisdom requires appropriate support and guidance, πŸ’•which over the years can give rise to a whole new integrated majestic being.
.
.
Motherhood is a time of turbulence and reintegration.
When it is not guided and not supported, it can lead to the deepest of despair and an uneasy confusion that can lead to a profoundly depleted state. βœ¨πŸ™πŸΎβœ¨
.
.
It takes a village to raise a child.
This is self evident.
It also takes a village to raise a mother!!! .
.
This should be self evident, but our society has lost it ways, corrupted its wisdom and downgraded the most important of roles!!! .
