@monetnicolebirths shares: "One of my favorite waterbirth images I’ve ever taken. This little babe was born encaul (amniotic sac still intact as she emerged). You can still see it covering her face as she comes out of the water here 💗🙌🏼" As a #midwife who has worked in both hospital and then homebirth settings, I get asked a lot of questions. Some of them are more personal and unique to each mama or birth professional, which I answer in online consultation. But some I have heard many, many times. Because these same questions get asked often, I decided it would be helpful to compile a monthly newsletter to answer those common ones for FREE at http://homesweethomebirth.com/askthemidwife #BirthWithoutFear#NormalizeBirth
I’ve had many transformations but my favorite was after giving birth to Elijah. -60lbs down 😭❤️ So many people told me that I was not going to get my body back after having my son. That I should eat whatever because I’m pregnant.. that now I’m eating for 2 people.. 🙄 that I shouldn’t workout and enjoy pregnancy...as much as I’ve been told all of this I didn’t listen to any of it because my goals were stronger than the voices around me 💁🏻I laugh because I was able to prove not only to myself but also to others that it is possible. Yes, you may have loose skin and stretch marks, but you can still get in the best shape of your life as long as you’re committed! 💪🏼It just all comes down to how bad do you really want it. 💯Guys I’ve never felt so confident and alive in my entire life than I do now. I sometimes look at myself and I forget that I’m a mom that I was able to create a human being. & because I take care of myself you wouldn’t think that I have a baby because of course of how I look. Lol but just goes to show that you can set your mind to anything so never settle! 🙌🏻👍🏼

That’s it! Open until Monday at midnight PST (11/19). Winner will be randomly selected and tagged in this post on Tuesday (11/20) 10am PST. Open to US residents only (I do plan on having more giveaways in the future open for international friends). Giveaway not endorsed or sponsored by Instagram.
Everything was ready at the beginning of the week to take this picture 'cause I wanted to document my 20 weeks baby bump and the fact that I now know I'm having another baby girl, but I wasn't ready or in the mood 'cause #momlife ... Hubby was away for 5 days while I was taking care of our sick kids.
So, let me just say a few words. Have I told you how excited I am to love and raise one more girl? So blessed to be a #girlmom and so happy to have my very own besties for life ☺️
