The good news is that figuring out how to parent your newborn is something you can do while you discover what type of parent you want to be, and most of the time, your baby will lead the way. The even better news is that it will probably involve a skin-to-skin extravaganza. Dr. Bob Hamilton is here to tells us more.

April Teel has had two unmedicated vaginal births, one at a freestanding birth center in southern California and the other at a hospital in North Dakota. Independently of birth setting, the biggest difference in these experiences came down to the pushing stage, with one being actively managed, and the other being completely dictated by her body, allowing her to experience the Fetal Ejection Reflex.

Today we are going to go beyond the birth plan to talk about birth principles. Although a well crafted birth plan can be a powerful tool, more often than not their formulaic, and outcome-focused nature can give a false illusion of control, and elicit eye rolls from jaded caregivers. The truth is, your efforts may be better spent on first crafting your own set of birth principles. Jessie Harrold explains why. Check it out!

After giving birth twice before, Victoria thought she had life with a newborn pretty much figured out. But when her third daughter was born fussy crying and frustrated, the thought running through Victoria’s mind was that something was off with this baby. What followed were weeks searching for that elusive one thing that would make everything good for her child, and not necessarily wanting to hear that maybe this is just who she was… Check it out.

If you had or have a baby who is suspected to be big, your provider may have talked about the risk of the shoulders getting stuck, and maybe suggested an earlier induction or even a cesarean.

The ever amazing Rachel Reed has answers.

It’s extremely common for pushing stages to be managed, with laboring people reclining on their backs and being told to grab behind their knees and pull them open towards their ears, while tucking their chins, and holding their breath for a count of 10. Is this really the best way? Does it support physiology? And what effect does it have on the baby, and on the perineum that’s receiving the brunt of that exertion? The fabulous Whapio is here to tell us more. Check it out.
