Sleeping on your right side? Don’t freak out!!

I am always amazed at where people go to find their information and how many wives tales are still believed to this day. You know like for instance, “don’t raise your hands above your head or your baby will strangle?” Not possible! And here’s my favorite, sleeping on your right side will kill your baby. Here’s the scoop: Sleeping on your left side will increase the amount of blood and nutrients that reach the placenta and your baby HOWEVER sleeping on your right side will not decrease the blood flow to your baby. The only position you should avoid and can cause problems is sleeping on your back. It can cause issues with your back, breathing, the digestive system, hemorrhoids, low blood pressure and cause a decrease in circulation to your heart and your baby. This is caused by our abdomen resting on your intestines and major blood vessels (the aorta and vena cava). It’s always best to get your information from reliable, evidence based resources!

Natural, Epidural, c-section…it just doesn’t matter!!

I wrote this 2 years ago and so worth putting it out there again!
As a Doula who has seen birth in a variety of ways, please be careful of the words you choose when describing the birth of a baby…an epidural does not make you a failure, pitocin does not make you a failure, hospital births do not make you a failure, c-sections do not make you a failure!! Giving birth any way you desire with whatever outcome makes you the best mom ever because in the end you chose life!!!
