This is something that is discussed in Hypnobabies class.  What are the pros and cons?  Why should we do this?  But my care provider says they won’t do it?  These are common questions I hear from my students and from the Hypnobabies Yahoo Group.

I usually suggest they do their own research and share with their care provider.  What often happens is they are so used to their routines that even if they agree to it, if it isn’t their standard of care they forget in the moment. 

SO, if this is important to you find a care provider that does it all the time or REMIND your care provider while you are pushing!  (make that dad’s job) 

Here is a great post by a L&D nurse about Delayed Cord Clamping, with great resources to check out.  

Another great place to go is Sarah Buckley has written a great article about Third Stage.

Congrats to Chrissy

She won the give away!  Sorry it took me so long.   I had the names printed out and cut up and in a box ready for one of my boys to pick a winner.  I had 2 back to back births  I was a doula for.  That always messes up my plans.  But they were both fun, wonderful Hypnobabies births. 

So I finally had MY hypnobaby pick out a name last night. 

Chrissy, I have e-mailed you.  I just need your snail mail address and I will get your gifts out to you!

Been at 2 births

Hence, I haven’t had a chance to pick the winner.  I have the names printed out, but need to cut them up and have one of my boys pick the winner!  I hope to do this on Sunday and post the winner on Monday!

Kathy is doing a give away of this book.  Go check it out here.   I love Kathy’s blog, because it has such great childbirth information. 

She is giving away a new Breastfeeding Book called   Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy.   It really fits right in with the idea of Enjoy Your Baby’s Birth with Comfort, Joy and Love.  Why not enjoy breastfeeding too?  The book looks really great and all the reviews I have read have been really positive.

Consumer Reports has written about some of the problems in America’s maternity care.  Then they made this quiz so you can see how much you know!

Despite growing evidence of harm, many obstetricians and maternity hospitals still overuse high-tech procedures that can mean poorer outcomes for baby and Mom.

When will America start providing the BEST care for moms and their babies?

A 2002 Taiwan study investigating the association between demographic-obstetric factors and perceived labor pain in 90 primiparas having normal births found that their perceived level of pain was related to their expected level of pain. The researchers found no significant association between the pain and newborn birth weight, maternal age, body mass index, confidence in labor or duration of labor. They concluded that the “findings suggest that primiparas’ perceived labor pain is correlated with psychogenic rather than physical factors.”

This totally supports the idea behind Hypnosis for Childbirth.  Add the powerful tools of Hypnobabies and you have a comfortable birth!  :)
