Waterbirth…So Gentle

In honor of my waterbirth teacher and mentor’s birthday, Barbara Harper, I share a recent waterbirth at Women’s Hospital of Greensboro,NC.

Waterbirth…so natural, so gentle, so safe!

Yes…a waterbirth is natural birth. It is so much more gentle for momma and baby. And it is safe…baby is not going to drown; there are no infections.

It can even be safe for VBACs, as is shown here.

Women’s Hospital of Greensboro, NC has the statistics that show the wonderful outcomes.

However, you must be a qualified candidate for a waterbirth and only your care provider can determine this for you. You must also have a midwife attend your birth.

RESPECT…IS IT REALLY THAT DIFFICULT?

ImprovingBirth.org has stated…

We believe that women should be treated with kindness and respect in childbirth !
We believe that bullying and coercion have no place in healthcare!
We believe that dignity and compassion are not too much to ask for pregnant women!

When I’m having a contraction…please do not ask me a question!

 

 

                                                              Dr. Michael Odent has said…..

“Silence is a basic need for a woman in labor. Privacy is another basic need.”

When I’m having a contraction…please do not tell me what I’m doing wrong!

When I’m having a contraction…please do not fuss at me!

                                                                                            ” The support a woman receives in labor and birth makes the difference between empowerment and trauma.” ~Mrs. BWF     http://birthwithoutfearblog.com<                                                                                             

When I’m in labor…please respect my choices!

It is just respect, something that every human being should extend to others. And imagine what if we all did respect each other. Imagine the possibilities, beginning with birth.

It really is not that difficult. The Midwives and Nurses in these pictures gave these women and men respect…right here at Women’s Hospital of Greensboro, NC.<

Why can’t this happen everywhere??? It just is not that difficult!!! Respect!!!

 

 

When I’m in labor…please enter quietly, peacefully, lovingly…and respectfully!

I’M NOT SAYING IT IS EASY…..

<<

BUT I AM SAYING IT IS WORTH IT!!!

                                                             WATERBIRTH!!!!!

Your Nurse’s Impact on You

imadfghgesYour nurses while you are at the hospital can make all the difference in the world as to how you perceive your birthing experience.They even impact your labor and your breast feeding experience.
And I can tell you, there are some outstanding nurses at Women’s Hospital in Greensboro, NC….in Maternity Admitting, Labor & Delivery, Mommy Baby rooms….well, just everywhere!imslages
But please remember, nurses are people, too. And not every person is a personality fit to every other person.
If you feel the least bit uncomfortable, all you need do isask to see the Charge Nurse and tell her, with kindness, you would like to have a different nurse, if at all possible.

imdfghjklages

In all likelihood, if you are feeling uncomfortable, your nurse is probably also feeling some tension. Changing nurses is therefore a win win for all. As we all know….tension is not good for anyone….. not for you, not for your little baby, not for your nurse!!!
    
                       As always…….Your birth experience is important! It matters!!! imagdes
