I am thrilled to be able to officially announce that Rhondda Evans Hartman, a pioneer of the natural birth movement in the US and award-winning author, is paying us a special visit in Phoenix, Arizona this weekend!

You may have seen THIS mantra on here a few months ago (artwork by our very talented student, Jon Garza)


Rhondda's philosophy on birth is exactly what we teach in The Bradley Method.  Her exercises that she designed for Dr. Bradley's patients are the ones that we are still teaching in classes today.  Here are the details on her event. Please feel free to "pin", tweet or share so we can give her a warm AZ welcome!

Monday Mantra: Sharing Calmness

A sweet reminder that your state of mind is your baby's state of mind:

©2014 Sweet Pea Births - Image by Cassandra Okamoto

All through pregnancy and labor, your baby is working with you, your body, and nature's timeless process that culminates with birth.

By learning about pregnancy and birth, you can break the Fear-Tension-Pain cycle, and replace Fear of the Unknown with Knowledge and Empowerment. 

This can lend you the peace of mind to be calm. It can empower your decisions and offer a calm confidence in your choices, and your ability to birth in healthy, low-risk situations. Even if you have some high-risk factors, educating yourself about your options can still lead to an empowered, satisfying birth experience.

If you need help with ways to create and find calm for your birth, an evidence-based Bradley Method® class or Bradley™-inspired book are great places to start!

I would use these words when I started to feel things move out of control in our labor.  Being a very list-oriented, can-do type of person, it takes me a long time to surrender to the power and unpredictability of birth. 

When I finally do, I have to convince myself that I am not broken because it takes me much longer than other women to birth (it’s a vicious cycle!).  Instead of holding back the intensity, I tell myself that in order to birth, I have to welcome the power of the contractions and allow them to take over my body.  I see it as a release of the conscious (head: this is labor and I can do it) to the acceptance of the primal (heart: this is much bigger than I am and it is infinite).

I do not like relinquishing control.  Reminding myself that I can control my calmness in face of the power, and I can control how well I relax, helps me to finally give in and completely surrender to the labor so I can finally meet our Sweet Pea.  Instead of focusing on the intensity, I focus instead of how I manage that intensity.  I remember to breathe in calm and exhale the building tension.  I hear Coach Bruss telling me that I am doing well, and he reminds me to stay loose, limp and relaxed.

So that is how maintain clarity through the increasing intensity.  I have confidence in my coach, our baby, our birth team, and myself.  I feel that I am calm and relaxed.  I can do this.

Do the words calm & relaxed reassure you? Which words help you?

You Are Important And Able

We have one family in our Fall 2013 series left to hear from...so far nine Bradley babies have arrived safely earthside!
I saw this thought today and thought of them, and all the other mamas out there that read our blog.  It is so crucial that you remember that your labor is going to lead to your child's Birth-Day.  You have every right to expect to be treated with dignity throughout your pregnancy, labor and birth.
You Are Important
  • You have been chosen to carry life - two souls, two hearts, two brains...in one body.
  • You alone can carry this person safely to term (for them).
  • You are the only woman who can speak on behalf for your child.  And you will...you are willing to face down lions for them before, during and after their Birth-Day.
  • You alone can decide to labor for them, and how you will labor for your Sweet Pea's best birth.

You Are Able
  • You are not alone - you are embarking on the work that countless, amazing women have done before you.
  • You are a legacy - you have the strength of generations of women before you in your family line that birthed before medicine got involved - otherwise your family line would have ended long ago.
  • You are willing - you chose to see the pregnancy through to this date - you can see it through to the Birth-Day.
  • You are not alone - you have a loving Coach and/or a Doula who are ready to be your voice when your voice is turned inward towards your child.

You have every right to informed consent, and you have every right to dignity in birth because You Are Important and You Are Able to give your Sweet Pea every opportunity for their best possible birth.


Own it - Think it - Be it - you can totally rock your birth!!

Was there a mantra or principle that helped you rock your birth?

Going Above and Beyond Fear

Posted on January 13, 2014 at 7:05 PM Comments comments (1)

This is one of my favorite birth mantras.  It is so easy to go to the “what ifs” and the “I don’t know” and “I’m afraid of”.  We could literally drive ourselves into a frozen panic if we go down those paths. 
 
With each of my births, my fears were different.  I focused on these words to remind myself of all the positives we did have as we approached our due date, and all the proactive things we had done to set ourselves up for our best possible birth.
 
Here are some of the things that are in your control that can help you get to what you want:
 
  1. Exercise to build up your strength (especially the muscle groups used in labor) and stamina.
  2. Whole food nutrition to serve as optimal building blocks for a Healthy Mom and Healthy Baby.
  3. A repertoire of labor positions to manage different sensations and stages of labor.
  4. A “toolbox” of comfort measures to manage different sensations and stages of labor.
  5. Positive communication skills to ensure an open line of communication with your partner, your care team, and in your birth space.
 
So while yes, anyone who cares about the birth of their baby is going to have some fears, it is important to look above and beyond them to all the things you can and will do to achieve what you want: a Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby outcome.
 
A good childbirth preparation course will cover at least the five basics outlined above.  Of course, Bradley Method® classes are our favorite, and you will learn those things and more over our twelve-week series.
 
Do you have a favorite mantra that helped you during pregnancy and labor?

5 Step Plan for Labor

Posted on December 10, 2013 at 4:28 PM Comments comments (58)
Here are Dr. Bradley’s "Keys to Labor", as per his book, Husband-Coached Childbirth.  I love these simple steps – they could almost be considered a “recipe” for labor.  

If you follow these steps, you can figure out if you are in “real” labor.  If you are not, somewhere along these steps, your contractions will fizzle out.  And if they do, mama has eaten well, slept, and hopefully had a good nap so that you are rested for the next round of contractions when they begin again.  If you are in labor, you will go through these five steps and discover that despite the change in activity and positions, your contractions are progressing.  Now you can get excited because you will be meeting your baby sooner than later.  And then, settle down to "work", because labor is definitely an athletic event, albeit one of the most rewarding ones ever!
 
Eat
  • Mom should eat the kind of food she is hungry for: a meal, a snack, or a nibble, depending on where she has progressed in labor. 

A laboring mother should eat to her appetite.  Early in labor, she may be ready for a full meal.  We have students who go out to breakfast after they know they are in labor just to pass the time away.  If she is hungry, feed her accordingly.  As labor progresses and the body starts to divert bodily functions exclusively to labor and birth, you will see her appetite wane.  Later in labor, maybe she will want a bite of something – and definitely not the full meal she was requesting before.  If labor has been on the longer side and she is refusing food, or if she is being denied food and she is still hungry, you may consider clear broths for the dual purpose of an energy boost and hydration.

Drink
  • Mom needs to be drinking every hour.  Whether she wants a full glass, a few sips, or ice chips – keep her hydrated.
 
Dr. Bradley wrote in his book that a mother should “drink to thirst”.  We now know that thirst is a late sign of dehydration.  It is best to keep mom hydrated by offering her a glass of water every hour in the early stages of labor.  Again, as labor progresses, she may not want that full glass of water.  You can offer her a sip of water after every contraction, or maybe ice chips will be better.  Some mothers may even prefer sucking on a damp cloth.

Walk
  • At a good pace to rock baby down and encourage labor to progress.
 
Walking is a great way to speed up labor.  It is always a great way to work yourself into exhaustion.  You need to gauge how it’s working for your particular labor.  When you walk, are the contractions getting harder, longer and stronger?  If walking is not having that effect on your labor, then maybe you should just go for a 20-30 minute walk to labor baby down into the pelvis and exert some pressure on the cervix to encourage it to dialate, and then move on to the next step.  If walking is clearly making your labor progress, go for it.  You could walk until mom needs more help with relaxation besides reassuring words and counter-pressure.

Shower
  • Water has been called the “midwife’s epidural”. A warm shower or bath can do wonders to ease the intensity of labor.
 
Water has an incredibly relaxing effect.  It can literally wash the tension away.  Some mothers may like the full submersion and weightlessness in a birth tub.  Other mothers may prefer the soothing sound and the sensation of water flowing down her body.  If your birth place has the equipment, try both and see what works for her.  You may want to consider limiting your use of water to an hour at a time if mom is in the tub.  See THIS article from Penny Simkin for more information about how to use water in labor.

Nap
  • Now that Mom has fueled, hydrated, moved baby, and eased tension, do a relaxation exercise to ease her into a rest period.  An unmedicated mother *will not* sleep through the birth of her baby.
 
Mom has done everything she can to ensure a healthy, low-risk labor. She has nourished and hydrated her body as it prepares for the athletic event of birth.  She has walked to move baby and help dilate the cervix.  She has used water to dissipate any tension she may have been holding onto.  Now it’s time to encourage her into a side relaxation position, or which ever other position is comfortable enough for her to enter a state of deep relaxation.  Optimally, you want the mother to get a good sleep.  If it’s nighttime, then maybe she can sleep through the night, or until her contractions wake her up again.  If it’s during the day, hopefully she can get a decent nap.

You can definitely follow this labor pattern over and over, until the mother is unable to sleep anymore because she is going through transition, and/or having the urge to push.  It is definitely a way to manage labor without additional pain relief.  The love and support of an invested coach, replenishing energy, and rest can go a long way for a family to have a natural birth.

If you liked the way you labored, what was your recipe for success?

It Is Possible

Posted on November 25, 2013 at 5:17 PM Comments comments (0)
Here is today's thought to share with you:


I have had the pleasure of connecting with Rhondda Evans Hartman, RN over the last few months, thanks to her new book Natural Childbirth Exercises for Your Best Birth Possible.

She was a participant in The Childbirth Summit in October of 2013.  Many of those videos are still available for free on Vimeo.  HERE is a link to Rhondda's conversation with Dr. Rob Coombs.

This quote comes from that talk, and I think it beautifully encompasses the goal of The Bradley Method®.  Our bodies are beautifully designed to give birth.  Especially if you are healthy and low-risk, You Can Do This.  I hope you will take the time to reflect on these words and embrace them through your birth journey.

Another idea to piggyback on this is to Trust Your Instinct.  If you are going through your labor and your gut instinct tells you that it's time to make choices outside of what is on your Wish List, listen.  There is a time and a place to use interventions appropriately, should they be the ones that you need for a Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby outcome.

A little background about Rhondda:  She was in charge of running the hospital classes for Dr. Bradley, and her focus was on getting mothers physically ready for the act of natural birth, as well as encouraging them on their journey.  The exercises she designed for her classes are timeless; they are still the ones that we teach to our students today.
See Rhondda's book HERE

Do you have a mantra that helped to center you for your birth journey?

P.S.  Do you love today's image as much as I do?  It was designed by one of our alumni dads - thank you, Jon, for bringing Rhondda's words and my visions to life!

Commit to the Birth

Posted on November 18, 2013 at 5:10 PM Comments comments (0)
I have this poster pinned to my Pinterest Natural Pregnancy/Birth Board.  As we draw to the close of another Bradley Method® class series, I thought today was a great day to share this "pledge".  Do you love the way it takes the pressure off of the outcome, and focuses more on the journey??  That's what makes it a great mantra for me.

It is so important to remember that your birth is Your Birth.  The decisions you make are yours to live with.  Are you at a decision point?  Then make the choices that serve you, and don't pre-judge your choices with the filter of, "what will people say", or, "this means I am a failure".  Your care provider, your nurse, your "others I want to impress", they are not going to live with your choices.

You and your partner will live with this experience for the rest of your life.  Even if you don't get everything on your Wish List, you can approach your birth as a team.  You can decide to give your baby the birth that they need, whatever that means for your family.  Some families will have a textbook Bradley™  birth, some couples may choose to use an epidural appropriately and at the right time, others may welcome their baby via a cesarean birth.  In the end, how they arrive is just part of the story.

How you feel about that birth journey is going to depend on you.  Did you feel like you were listened to?  Did you feel like your dignity as a human being was honored?  Do you look back and see how you and your partner used your education about birth to ask the right questions, evaluate your options, and make the choices that were right for your family *in that moment*?  Is their someone on your birth team that will be your voice when you can't talk anymore...and do they know that is their role?

No matter how your baby arrives, YES answers to those questions can make many different birth scenarios empowering and fulfilling.  Knowing that you trusted your instincts and made the best possible choices for your birth, allowing yourself to adjust your expectations, be present, and let your labor be a labor filled with love...at the end of the day, those are the things that will matter as you look back at your experience.

Wishing you a Happy Birth-Day, Fall Class of 2013!!  (And to anyone else who finds this message encouraging and timely!)

What was important to you during your labor?
Was there anything that made you feel honored as a birthing mother?

Birth Mantras

Posted on July 9, 2013 at 9:56 AM Comments comments (0)
We have been teaching Bradley Method® classes long enough to have the privilege of having alumni students come back and take another series as they are expecting their next child.  We have one of those couples in our current class, and something came up in class that made me reflect on our births.

The class topic last week was stages of labor.  We talked about the markers of the different stages of labor, how to identify “transition” that typically happens between first stage (cervical dilation and positioning baby) and second stage (pushing to birth), and how to manage the different stages of labor.

Our alumni mom mentioned that she was never able to let go of the discomfort of feeling like she had to have a bowel movement.  She wasn’t able to dilate any further until they got to the hospital and she got an epidural.  The epidural relieved that feeling for her, and she dilated from 5cm to 10cm in one hour.  When she was able to let go of that sensation and the fear of losing control, her body got busy.  She is retaking our class because although she liked her epidural, she knows that the less drug exposure to baby, the better.

It made me reflect back on our birth experiences.  Although I never asked for drugs, I look back and wonder what would have happened if I had given up control of our births a lot sooner.  I imagine they would have been more in line with our 18-hour birth of our biggest baby.  All 11 pounds and 1 ounce of Night Owl, arrived in the early morning after being left alone to labor with the support of Coach Bruss and our doula.  We had eaten, slept, stayed hydrated, and his was our easiest birth.

After that, we had our two longest births, ironically, at the time when we were training to become a Bradley™ instructors, and after we were certified as instructors.  

It seems that the more I “knew”, the less able I was to let go.  I was so busy analyzing, worrying about taking pictures that we could use in class, wondering how I would be perceived by my peers and our students, that I added untold layers of emotional baggage that Bruss would have to work me through.  I had to surrender to the fact that natural birth is all about relinquishing judgment and control, and accepting that we were going to allow my body and our baby the birth that they needed.  Once I hit that point of complete release, both of those children were born within about 5 hours of that turning point.

I want to share what I now know to be my birth mantra, just in case it can help another mama have an easier birth.  As much as I would love another go at putting this into practice (and have a labor sprint instead of marathons!), it feels like our family is complete, so I hope you will benefit from it for a better birth for you and your baby. 

Side note.1:  If you have any past birth or sexual trauma, it is so important to work through those feelings during pregnancy. Come to your current birth experience with a clean of a slate as possible.  The path to surrender is more easily paved if you aren’t trying to do it all in your present labor.

Bradley Method® natural childbirth classes offered in Arizona: Chandler, Tempe, Ahwatukee, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale, Payson Accept:  There is no one right way to birth.  There is no one right way to feel.  The most important thing to evaluate is am I (Mom) okay?  Is our Baby okay?  If so, then accept that this is your birth and carry on.

Surrender:  Surrender to your thoughts.  Surrender to the sensations.  Surrender to the feelings.  Birth is much bigger than we are.  It is timeless.  It is the way our bodies were designed to work for childbirth.  Be okay with losing control over the process.

Give In:  Give into your thoughts.  Give into your sensations.  Give into your feelings.  Do you want to cry?  Cry.  Does moaning feel good?  Moan!  Do you want to rock, roll, walk, move, gyrate, sway, just lay still?  What are your body and your baby telling you to do?  Release all worry about judgment from outsiders, release yourself from your own judgment of what you can and can’t do.  Allow yourself to give into your birth and see where it takes you.

Let Go:  Let it all go.  Any preconceived notions of your birth.  Your timeline.  The clock.  Your plan A, plan B, and the other plans you had – let them go.  Focus on being in the moment with your partner.  Focus on being in the moment with your baby – you cannot relive or redo these sensations later.  Let everything go, and *go* for the ride. 

Let God:  Being a spiritual person, there was always an emotional component for me that involved prayer, and appealing to a higher power.  Once I gave up my control and turned it over to God, labor seemed to flow smoothly and resolutely to a birth.  The birth of another of His miracles, of which Bruss and I got to play a small part.  It is so humbling to realize that I am not in control, and I don’t have to be, in order for birth to happen.  

Bradley Method® natural childbirth classes offered in Arizona: Chandler, Tempe, Ahwatukee, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale, Payson

When I gave into my body, our baby and our God, all things fell into place and we ended up having beautiful birth experiences, albeit long ones.  In the midst of those long labors, the idea that got me through the time with patience and without resorting to drugs to ease the sensations of labor was “We are allowing my body and our baby the birth that they need.” 

Side note.2:  Knowing what I know now about Pitocin, I wish we hadn’t asked for it with Charger’s birth.  I know the point when I didn’t need it anymore, and I wish I had insisted as the consumer that they take the line out.  I know where that emotional release happened and there was no turning back labor with or without “the Pit”.

While there in nothing wrong with having a long labor, and we usually “win” the long labor comparison conversations (there is that judgment again!), I really do not wish long waiting times to meet your baby on anyone.  Think about these mantras if you need them, and I wish you all the best for a beautiful birth experience!!

Did you have any mantras when you were in labor?  What were they?
