WE’RE NOT JUST MAKING BABIES. WE’RE MAKING WAVES.
Hold on – not all births happen in a hospital? Some women choose to give birth at home? And use cloth diapers? Co-sleeping; that just doesn’t sound safe. Breastfeeding is natural, so it must come naturally. But, for real, people don’t actually ingest their placenta… right? And what the heck is a doula? Isn’t that the same as a midwife?
If you have had these thoughts, hear me out, mama. These are not things of myth. Let me take the mystery out of it and walk you through these less popular choices in pregnancy, birth, postpartum and beyond. Because, the thing is, every mother deserves choice in the where and how she births (and in what happens leading up to and after that). In order to exercise choice, you need to know what your options are!
There’s no shame in choosing the mainstream – just don’t choose it by default. My aim is to normalize the unpopular practices in maternity, present them as viable alternatives and remove the fear from the unfamiliar so you can identify what actually works for you as a new mother. Get Ready to Unpop… and don’t be afraid to rock the boat while you’re at it.
