The first latch- the beginning of our breastfeeding journey. I am so grateful to be able to nurture Jameson with my body. It is amazing how seamlessly the transition from pregnancy to having this baby in our life has been. He is such a dream, and it honestly feels like he has always been here. While the newness of the birth and fourth trimester melts away, the bond and connection we all have with this little infant becomes stronger. With each day he grows, his personality is starting to form. He is such a special part of our family. ❤️ How absolutely blessed we are!

?We’re hitting the pavement tomorrow to spread the word about our October events featuring the film @thesearemyhours with @rheadempsey_birthingwisdom in Melbourne and @the_birth_house and @dashaclarke in Geelong. Where do you think we should put up posters? Tag a person or a business you think needs to know about this event, which will bring to light a powerful and intimate look at one woman’s journey of birth, and open up discussion on women’s rights, birth choices, working with pain, and how patriarchal culture influences our maternity system. #naturalbirth #birthdocumentary
Got to marry this gorgeous soul @katiepulsifer and her beautiful man @maine2vi last night. Waiting for photos to post, but for now, just wanna say what a gift of an experience this was... to get to write and facilitate the ceremony of marriage for my oldest friend, my cherished confidante and godsister, knowing w out question, through-and-through, that she’s marrying a man worthy of her greatness, a man who truly cherishes her and who knows how to show it, and does so, as a matter of course. Good love is such a sweet thing. #somuchlove #steveandkatiewedding #nodrama #officiant #danceforever #lucky #marrying #thesearemyhours
@thesearemyhours provides a profound opportunity to bare witness to one woman's physical, emotional and spiritual experience as she gives birth to her child gently and powerfully. We look forward to an open discussion with midwives from @the_birth_house in Geelong, and Doula @dashaclarke as part of our Q & A, where we will explore birth choices, trusting our bodies, understanding the hospital system and human rights and feminism in childbirth. Join us on Thursday 18th October @courthouseyoutharts, Geelong for this eye opening film event ?. ?Tickets in our profile link ?.
I recently had the great pleasure of meeting Scott, director of a new, life altering documentary about the miracle of birth. We met at the @westashevilletailgate market where he got to try jun for the first time! Naturally he fell in love ?and then invited me to see his film @themothlight that evening. At the time he didn’t know about my pre-jun history as a pre-conception, prenatal, perinatal Childbirth educator, Doula, maternity nurse, lactation consultant, home birther, water birther, lotus birther ...?!!! Scott and crew thank you for directing this amazing film and Emily and family thank you for your vulnerability. This film has the potential to change the world and my hope is that all people everywhere see this film!!! The way we birth our babies affects the health and well-being of the entire family. By sharing normal with the world through this film you have opened up the doors for others to see what is possible. Birthing in a place where you feel safe and supported allows you to connect with your inner guide, your higher self and that is where the magic happens!!! It was my birth background, both professional and personal, and the understanding of the importance that the human microbiome plays in maintaining health that led me to brewing my first batch of jun!!! Most people don’t realize that gut health begins in utero and giving birth vaginally, followed by immediate skin to skin and breastfeeding all play a huge role in long term health!!! The microbes that are passed from the mother to the newborn during the vaginal birth process inoculate the baby and protect the microbiome!

Episode 156 of the podcast is up! What if men were just as excited about birth as mothers were? Today is a very special episode. Matthew gets to chat with Scott Kirschenbaum, the director and producer of the new birth documentary film “These Are My Hours,” an intimate immersion into one woman’s experience of giving birth. @thesearemyhours is told and viewed completely through the perspective of the birthing mother Emily (whom we are interviewing in our next episode so stay tuned!). This is a really unique and powerful conversation to add to the birth world. First of all, it’s two dudes talking about birth in a loving and empowering way (you don’t see that everyday!). It also reveals the possibility for us as a culture when it relates to birth. That everything can shift in a positive way when we approach birth with the proper care, attention and reverence. Plus, we get to hear all about the process of creating this extraordinary film. To learn more about the movie, go to TheseAreMyHours.com.

Watched @thesearemyhours tonight at a @positivebirthmovement meeting!! Don't want to give too much away, you'll all have to watch it yourselves but I just love how everyone in Emily's birth team left her to it. They knew that she knew what she needed to do and only interfered when she asked them to. Specifically hit me when her husband tried to kiss her and she decided against it. It was clear that he wasn't offended and knew it was a tough time and to just let her do what she needed. I also loved that they showed the placenta being delivered. I feel like that is missing from a lot of birth videos and images and in turn makes it appear gross or something not to be talked about. Speaking of, stay tuned for a beautiful placenta photograph tomorrow.
It’s always hard leaving Machias at summer’s end: I love that land just as I love the people dear to me; I feel both soothed and seen, held and challenged, at home in the deepest possible ways there. Most myself in some real ways. But the leaving is cushioned every year by a stop at my parents’ house four hours south, my childhood home, where they’ve lived for 45 years. It is their sanctuary, the gathering spot, the hearth for us all. Dad put on Joshua Bell minutes before we arrived bc he knows jasper loves violin. This is what we walked into ❤️ #lastday #home #family #ilovemydad #summer2018
Feeling super grateful that Birth photographers and amazing images like this exist. Thank you @kindnessgirl for such a beautiful representation of the magic of birth.
