I’m dead 💀🤣! I had to repost @kaarenstyles So true! #nationalbreastfeedingmonth #sotrue #thestruggleisreal #ijs #iveretiredfrombreastfeeding 😅
Get used to it.  It's the most natural form of food there is, and you either had it or had a synthetic version of it.  Don't feel uncomfortable because the source is my body, not a factory.  Don't hate on the fact that it's free, healthy, and available on demand.  Recognize this is what my breasts are truly made for, not just for attraction.  I'll never look at my body the same way again.  And I'm sure anyone following me doesn't have a problem with this, but I still feel compelled to FINALLY share my own picture.  Big veins and swelling, lots of late nights and wardrobe issues, I fed both of my children strictly breast for the first 6 months of their lives.  And I'm finally weaning my 2 year old.  It's been an incredible journey, really really hard a lot of the time, yet such a bonding experience and pretty incredible when you think about how a women's body can sustain life through her breasts. *My boobs will never be that big again, and I'm totally owning it!

There is power in a good, deep latch. Ever wonder how baby gets the most of #mothersmilk ? Check out this video graphic!

This is GREAT graphic showing the importance of a deep latch.  Notice how the nipple is at the back of the  palate.  Often damaged nipples are associated with a shallow latch and the baby compressing the nipple instead of the areola. Proper latch helps babies pull milk from the breast more effectively.  Our bodies are so amazing.

Ladies who attended our #nutrition series had an awesome time last night! It’s so important for mom to eat right for herself, and baby. Healthy food doesn’t always have to be boring food. Our Director of Health and Wellness gave us the recipe for a delicious fall smoothie!

***IRISH MAMMIES!***
We are celebrating National Breastfeeding Week 🤰🏻🤱🏻in Ireland (1st October - 8th of October) with a trip to DUBLIN this weekend! 
We will have a stand at the Wellness of Women event @wellness_of_women_day WOW Day Out which is all about supporting post-partum Mothers, with a particular focus on mental health. 🤦🏻‍♀️
•
•
BellaMoon🌙 is all about providing support for breastfeeding Mothers. We help by creating a special place for Mother and baby to lie together and bond, whilst Mother re-charges her batteries with some much needed rest.  BellaMoon helps tired Mothers feel secure, supported and comfortable as they embark on their breastfeeding journey with their baby.🌙🤱🏻
•
•
Come along and talk to us - tell us about your breastfeeding journey, worries, achievements - we want to hear it all! Ask us questions about breastfeeding with BellaMoon, about the side-lying postion and all the other positions you can feed in.  We will have BellaMoon🌙 samples there that you can see, touch, feel.... and cuddle! 🤗 
We will also have a special 'EVENT DISCOUNT' 💸 available for anyone who purchases a BellaMoon at the event.
We are also donating a BellaMoon HALF MOON as a RAFFLE PRIZE! 🤩 So come along to be in with a great chance of winning! 
More than anything I have to say I am very excited about meeting all the Mums who I have met through Instagram and Facebook - I cant wait to have a great day out and chat to everyone! 💃🏻 Nothing like a good face-to-face chat to lift your spirits! 😄 
You can buy tickets to the event on the Wellness of Women insta page, and if you use the code BELLAMOON20 you will get 20% off the ticket price. 
SEE YOU THERE! 🤗

We will have a stand at the Wellness of Women event @wellness_of_women_day WOW Day Out which is all about supporting post-partum Mothers, with a particular focus on mental health. 🤦🏻‍♀️ • • BellaMoon🌙 is all about providing support for breastfeeding Mothers. We help by creating a special place for Mother and baby to lie together and bond, whilst Mother re-charges her batteries with some much needed rest. BellaMoon helps tired Mothers feel secure, supported and comfortable as they embark on their breastfeeding journey with their baby.🌙🤱🏻 • • Come along and talk to us - tell us about your breastfeeding journey, worries, achievements - we want to hear it all! Ask us questions about breastfeeding with BellaMoon, about the side-lying postion and all the other positions you can feed in. We will have BellaMoon🌙 samples there that you can see, touch, feel.... and cuddle! 🤗 We will also have a special 'EVENT DISCOUNT' 💸 available for anyone who purchases a BellaMoon at the event. We are also donating a BellaMoon HALF MOON as a RAFFLE PRIZE! 🤩 So come along to be in with a great chance of winning! More than anything I have to say I am very excited about meeting all the Mums who I have met through Instagram and Facebook - I cant wait to have a great day out and chat to everyone! 💃🏻 Nothing like a good face-to-face chat to lift your spirits! 😄 You can buy tickets to the event on the Wellness of Women insta page, and if you use the code BELLAMOON20 you will get 20% off the ticket price. SEE YOU THERE! 🤗 Irene xx #nationalbreastfeedingweek  #nurtureandrest  #bellamoon 
Breastfeeding should be a right for all mamas and not just a privilege for the few. Which means all mamas need: 🌟🌟
✅Information and resources.
✅Paid maternity leave.
✅A supportive partner, family and friends.
✅A workplace that celebrates mama employees.
✅A dignified comfortable place to pump at work.

You see that umbilical cord! That’s how it looks when your baby comes out. It’s filled with stem cells and the main vein that carries blood to your baby.  By delay cord clamping It increase baby hemoglobin levels and iron. Baby gets stem cells and oxygenated blood which is great while baby learns how to breathe for the first time. It also helps maintain bonding time between mother and baby, which is one of the best things. Skin to skin helps comfort baby and has a better out come in vitals. Less stress it also allows mothers hormones to start working. Our body really is made to do this and during each stage wombmy need to be able to follow natural instincts to be able to allow the body to produce hormones for detaching of the placenta and breastfeeding. -The Womb Sister

What’s your Monday Motivation?
.
.
Ours is Babies 👶🏽 ! We know that Black and Brown women Women of color are affected 2 times more than the national average. In Cleveland, Ohio, the most affected neighborhoods are Central, Buckeye-Woodhill, Ohio City, Lee-Harvard, and Hough. On average, 30 babies die out of 1,000 born in the Central neighborhood. That's Too Many!

These #facts are what keep us going. It’s what drives #birthingbeautifulcommunities to do that work that we do, in the way that we do it. Our group strives to eliminate this problem through health and wealth equity. This is #ourvillage

Facts are facts. Yes this is a job, a passion, and of course I would like to hear everyone has hired a doula. I would love for insurance to fully cover it. But facts are facts. I rather inform everyone and you do your best knowing your options. You get ready to speak up for yourself. You have support teams whose ready to have on combat boots. 
I don’t want to hear about another Nadine Renee, Kira Johnson, Crystal Galloway, Amy Lam, Calista Johnson, Ayesha Riaz, Latisha Nicholson, Lisa Swinton McLaughin, Shawnnise Baten, Shalon Irving, Marquette Johnson, Lynn Walker, Larissa Icemen, Audrey Lockett  Labranche.......... Wake up. One is too many. 
Just because you don’t hear about don’t mean it’s not happening. -The Womb Sister .

Being a #doula is lit 🔥
.

Are you expecting? There are so many benefits of having a doula. Studies have shown that having a doula as a member of the birth team decreases the overall cesarean rate by 50%, the length of labor by 25%, the use of oxytocin by 40%, and requests for an epidural by 60%. You can’t deny #facts. We are, in fact, lit.

Repost from @manda.milan First off, normalize this. The beauty in knowing I am able to nurture my baby is E V E R Y T H I N G. We are 6 months in and going strong. I am enjoying these moments because one day my baby won’t be a baby anymore. #breastfeeding #normalizebreastfeeding #breastfedbaby #teambreastfeeding #breastfeedingmama #momlife #momblogger #blackbreastfeedingweek #nationalbreastfeedingmonth

Are you “Self-Full”?
.
.
.
“Self-care is not selfish; it’s one of the best things you can do for your kids. Taking a break from family can cause guilt and anxiety in mothers and fathers alike. But a few hours away can re-energize you so you can get back to playing with Legos, making dinner and taking care of everyone else.” - The Washington Post

Getting ready for a special photoshoot with @hayleeguiverphotography in Tom Price this afternoon in honour of #nationalbreastfeedingmonth
Austin is tagging along for the ride, I finished #breastfeeding him earlier than I would have liked which makes me sad but I'm grateful things have been going so well with Will the last 3 months!! #staytuned . PS.  Why does my left eyebrow always want to party but my right one is like, "Nah, I'm a stay down here" ?!

I watched the days and weeks of #nationalbreastfeedingmonth (August) pass by, read lots of sweet posts and fully intended and desired to share something. But every time I tried I realized it’s a pretty heavy thing for me to weigh in on at the moment. It’s a lot to process: working on weaning my almost two year old while growing a new person with whom I hopefully will begin another beautiful journey of nourishing next spring. Before I got pregnant with #ourtinyrubyround2, nursing Ella was one of my favorite parts of life. I was constantly brought to tears of thankfulness by the comfort she received and the bond we shared during those moments. And it breaks my heart a little bit (read...actually a lot) that the amazing privilege of carrying life again has taken a little of the untarnished sweetness away. Frankly, it’s no easy feat to have someone draining you from the outside AND the inside at the same time. 😣 But recently I was humbled by the thought that I’ve given my body as a constant and increasing sacrifice to my babies for almost 3 years now and even though it’s just a tiny picture,  I’m reminded of how Christ laid down His body for me. It took Him suffering in flesh to bring healing to my soul. And those are the little lights in my tunnel that remind me there’s a purpose to the weakness of this season. The giving of myself until it seems there’s literally nothing else to give...and then waking up to give more another day. I know times of looking into Ella’s big blue eyes locked on mine, while my body does its mysterious and yet common work and her belly fills are ending. I know there will be tears from us both when it’s over. Hopefully she won’t be too hurt to see her beloved “Mmmellk” given to someone else soon. I guess there’s no perfect way to wrap this up other than, I just wanted to document some of the jumbled up, (probably mostly hormonally driven 😆) emotions and feelings swimming around in my heart. Motherhood really is is a tough battle...a wild ride...but also a very tremendous indescribable gift...and I’m feeling the weight of how much I love it and don’t deserve it a little extra today. 🤱🏼🤰🏼😭❤️ #darlingellajane 📷: @rachelclarkephoto😍✨
