October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.
There will be a wave of light ceremony in Eganville at Centennial Park.
All are welcome
And when we truly believe that,
we have then learned to trust ourselves.
Sometimes the only thing stopping us, is us.
You have FULL permission to forgive yourself for being so critical to your newly shaped body.
FULL permission to drop the thoughts that are making you feel so worthless.
FULL permission to turn away from social media and turn towards a life where you start acknowledging yourself as a learning and loving mother,
just as you are.🧡
Happy International Women’s Day from the crew at RCD.
Don’t let the world, dull that smile.
Don’t let those boys intimidate you.
You have the power of women who came before you, and the power to change your own path anytime you want.
Getting information about your pregnancy from a reliable source can be tricky…
The internet is full of information however, sometimes, opinions end up mashed into facts and the result can be far from the truth.
Know your body, trust your body, and have a knowledgeable person or source you can trust too.
We can help with all three of these!
It’s not fair.
You remember when your best friend had her baby and how she bragged about the other awesome moms she met a weekly drop in group.
There have been some changes in the way we offer support at this time in an effort to keep our team, families, and clients safe. Our hearts and ears are still open. Virtual coffee dates are always complimentary.
Peanut balls, squatting knees together and knees apart, walking and using gravity, knowing positions and tricks is great.
Knowing when to use them is the key!
This is where a doula shines.
FREE and Informed consent, what does it mean during pregnancy?
When a woman becomes pregnant she can often be flooded with “advice” and feel like she has to do things even when they don’t make sense to her.
From the top of buildings, we say “ASK QUESTIONS“.
Now we’re not talking about just asking friends and family. Ask your doctor or midwife; understand what a procedure involves. This is your birth, asking questions and weighing out options about your care are ways we can feel more comfortable in our decisions.
* Please note, this is not the same as a childbirth education class. This will be a free event however registration will be required. Please be aware this event date is assuming we are not at a birth! In such case we will reschedule the event and let registrants know as soon as possible.
Virtual Birth Prep
Given the recent changes at local area hospitals, we felt driven to find a way to get helpful information and tools for expecting mothers in preparation for their upcoming births.
We are inviting expecting families to join us for a mini prenatal meeting with one of our doulas! We will go over comfort measures that you can do on your own, provide links to various visual aids and videos, grounding techniques, as well as provide activities that can be done prenatally to prepare for life during and after birth.
