Neste momento acreditávamos que se iniciava outro parto natural tranqüilo, como o de nosso primeiro filho. Pela manhã descobrimos que nossa linda havia mudado de posição e tinha sentado. Ela estava encaixada até 3 dias antes do nascimento. Nossa médica, Mariana Simões, nos deu a opção de fazer a versão externa ou tentar o parto pélvico. Caso não fosse possível a versão, nossa opção havia sido a cesárea. Sim, nós tínhamos um receio bastante grande sobre o parto natural pélvico – até por ter sido uma surpresa para nós. Graças a Deus, quem escolheu a maneira como iria nascer foi ela, nossa linda filha Mariana!

      • Natural Childbirth Scenes - Part 2, Delivery


        from Genevieve MamaNatural Added 287K 48 3

        http://MamaNatural.com/ No pain medication. 27-hour labor. Doula and midwife assisted labor in a birthing center. Part 1 - Labor: http://mamanatural.com/natural-childbirth-scenes-part-1-labor/ Part 3 - Reflections: http://mamanatural.com/natural-childbirth-scenes-part-3-reflections-slideshow/ How to get a free breast pump: http://www.mamanatural.com/how-to-get-a-free-breast-pump/ After part one, I labored for another half hour and then filled the tub. My midwife talked about rupturing the water sac if I wanted to speed things up, but I declined. In the tub, I popped the sac naturally (YEAH!) and started to get the urge to push. My midwife checked me and said she could feel the baby's head. So I went for it. I was on all fours and pushing my guts out. I had intense 4-push-urge contractions and everyone thought this baby would be out by 9 p.m. Then things started to slow. Eventually, I got out of the tub. I was wiped out and my uterus was beyond exhausted. By 9 p.m. I was delirious with fatigue and dread. I honestly didn't know how I could get the strength to move forward and push the baby out. I asked if I could go to sleep and deliver in the morning. Ha! It didn't help that I hadn't eaten in 12 hours and I couldn't imagine trying. The baby was stuck in the same position for nearly 2 hours but thankfully he showed no signs of distress. The midwife and nurse wanted to kick start my uterus again, so began talking about pitocin and nipple stimulation. We tried nipple stimulation with wet rags and then breast pumps to activate stronger contractions. Cynthia was bombarded with pages that night and had to leave the room often. Once the pump's affect set in, I did have more intense contractions but, with the midwife gone, we didn't seize the opportunity. My midwife came back in and recommended pitocin. She also mentioned ideas like forceps and vacuum extraction. I was terrified of pitocin as I thought it would keep me contracting long after the labor was through. I was also concerned that it wasn't "natural." The nurse assured me she would only give me 2 drops (literally) which would give me the oomph to push this baby out and then I'd be done. The midwife, doula, Mike, and the nurse all felt like this was the right move so I went with it. Sure enough, once the two drops were in me I was squatting on a stool beside the bed with strong contractions again (although they weren't as strong as the breast pump contractions). I pushed like no one's business. After the first couple cycles, Mike and the midwife saw the baby's head beginning to crown! After a couple more push cycles, the midwife caught my baby and pressed him to my naked chest. Praise the Lord! The baby was very alert, with eyes open and scanning the room right from the start. He promptly began to cry for an hour straight while we all fumbled to get the breastfeeding latch right. I think the delivery was just as traumatic for him as it was for me.

            from Birth Story Added 89.4K 45 2

            WATCH THE FEATURE DOCUMENTARY NOW AT BIRTHSTORYMOVIE.COM Directed by Sara Lamm & Mary Wigmore Produced by Sara Lamm, Mary Wigmore, Kate Roughan & Zachary Mortensen A Reckon So & Ghost Robot Production The feature-length documentary BIRTH STORY: Ina May Gaskin and The Farm Midwives tells the story of counterculture heroine Ina May Gaskin and her spirited friends, who began delivering each other’s babies in 1970, on a caravan of hippie school buses, headed to a patch of rural Tennessee land. With Ina May as their leader, the women taught themselves midwifery from the ground up, and, with their families, founded an entirely communal, agricultural society called The Farm. They grew their own food, built their own houses, published their own books, and, as word of their social experiment spread, created a model of care for women and babies that changed a generation’s approach to childbirth. Forty years ago Ina May led the charge away from isolated hospital birthing rooms, where husbands were not allowed and mandatory forceps deliveries were the norm. Today, as nearly one third of all US babies are born via C-section, she fights to preserve her community’s hard-won knowledge. With incredible access to the midwives’ archival video collection, the film not only captures the unique sisterhood at The Farm Clinic–from its heyday into the present–but shows childbirth the way most people have never seen it–unadorned, unabashed, and awe-inspiring.

                Please check out: markmroz.com --- This is a short documentary that was made for a video contest for Birth Matters Virginia. The video consists of a synopsis of a typical birth by a registered nurse in a labor & delivery unit of at a local hospital, followed by individuals and couples sharing their birth experiences. The focus of this documentary is to show people that they have a choice in their birth, rather than just trusting "professionals" to take care of everything for them. You can educate yourself and have an amazing experience in your birth rather than just a "medical procedure." Many thanks to: Laura, Louis & Esther, David & Paula, Brian & Nicole, Dana & Mike, Jeff & Elizabeth, Jonathan, and all of their kids! I hope you enjoy.

Com cada contração a gente vai aprendendo.” ~ Ana Cristina Duarte, parteira - Você vai querer desistir em algum momento? É provável. Quando você entrar nesse lugar escuro, lodoso e achar que não vai conseguir é porque está muito perto! :o) Informe-se e escolha pessoas que realmente confiam no poder da mulher de parir para estar ao seu lado. Faz muita diferença! - Você tem medos e incertezas? Confie! Seu corpo foi feito para engravidar, parir e amamentar. "Parir foi a coisa mais difícil que eu já fiz na vida. Antes de parir eu tinha medo das sombras do puerpério, de não conseguir amamentar e de não conseguir ser uma boa mãe pra minha filha. Depois do parto eu tive certeza de tudo! Que qualquer dificuldade que aparecesse seria pequena perto do tamanho do nosso amor.
