Baby is here...now what?!?!😳 Planning for the #4thtrimester is one of the most overlooked processes for expectant mothers. 🙋🏾‍♀️ guilty! ____ I liken planning for Labor and Birth to planning for a wedding, whereas planning for the postpartum period and beyond is like getting prepared for a marriage. You might say the real or most challenging part comes after ‘THE BIG EVENT’.😉 ____ Know this…you will never be FULLY prepared, but below are some examples of practical things that will help make the transition smoother for everyone. At the top of your priority list should be bonding, staying healthy (mom and baby), getting as much rest as possible, and managing your emotions…not the laundry, dishes, dusting, or being worried about your snapback.🙅🏾‍♀️ ____ ✔️Attend a newborn care and breastfeeding class (if that is your preferred feeding method). ✔️Set boundaries and agree on responsibilities with family and friends before baby comes. ✔️Consider investing in a postpartum doula to lighten your load and assist the entire family with the transition. #motheringthemother ✔️Make sure to stay properly hydrated and eat nutritious food. Cook and freeze meals ahead of time and set-up a meal train. ✔️Have a plan to get out of the house, even if it is only 15 minutes. You NEED sunshine and fresh air. ✔️Have a list of important resources ready for any challenges that may arise during this period such as lactation consultants, postpartum depression therapist, pediatrician, etc. Your #birthdoula or #postpartumdoula would be happy to provide referrals. What is 1️⃣ thing you wish you were better prepared for in regard to the 4th trimester? 📸: personal archive...please tag if shared #radiantmotherandchild #radiantlife #momtobe #momonamission #findyourtribe #newmamas #prenatalhealth #postpartumjourney #realmom #honestmom #doula #doulalife #blackdoulas #doulasmatter #birthmatters #itsaseriousmatter #importantwork #postpartumhealth #postpartumdepression
Let’s talk about some tips and tools on planning as it relates to birth. For Doulas, one of the most requested services is to help clients write their Birth Plan. I like to coach my clients to call it a ‘Birth Preferences Guide’ instead to set the correct expectations. As any experienced doula will tell you, the only certainty in birth is that it is uncertain. . . . Don’t get stressed about following the “plan” to the letter. The real benefit isn’t the actual document itself, but rather the process. By exploring your options you know what to expect and this will help to reduce fear and stress which in turn lowers pain, you can confidently communicate with your birth team so they can support you in the best way possible, and you are empowered to make better decisions rather than being rushed into making a decision during a time of extreme hormonal surges and vulnerability. . . . Here are some topics to consider when making your labor and birth preferences outline. Yes, I said OUTLINE because tip #1 is for your document to look more like an outline than a novel.😉 ✔️Overall Goal: What type of birth are you hoping for? Think not only of the physical aspect, but emotional and spiritual as well. ✔️Labor: What do you want the environment to be like (including who is present)? Plans for coping with pain? ✔️Birth: What do you want the environment to be like (including who is present)? What does the pushing stage look like? What are your requests regarding cord clamping and immediate skin to skin? What is done with your placenta? What newborn procedures will be performed and when/where are they to be done? ✔️Wild Card: How will you handle the unexpected should complications arise? . . .

Introducing our little Coretta Scott King! Let me tell you...we've come along way with this project. Two 天前發佈 she said MLK was CSK's son. Lol! (Sorry her head is a bit cut off towards the end) Several things I learned: 1. She knows which fact means the most to her mother (#ShewasanAKA )! 2. If you can't get the word right (she was "boring" in Alabama), just switch it up! 3. You better clap for yourself before anyone else does! 4. All ladies keep their legs crossed when presenting! #TheyoungestMayette #OurVanillaCupcake #Sherunsthishouse
Memories 😂I am still crazy..🤷🏾‍♀️don’t be chuckling on the phone with the customer service chic. I said hang up and we’ll call back and get a new person 😂😂
We did not plan our matching outfits but saw each other tonight at the board meeting where our schools were recognized for PBIS. #principalsofinstagram #alphakappaalpha #principalsorors #twinning #itsaseriousmatter #pbis #mcsd @latonyahamilton12

Earlier this morning @daoaka08 showed how "Pink Goes Red" for heart health. We had a morning of fun that included a workout, dancing, free blood pressure screenings, information about leading a healthy lifestyle, and healthy snacks! Big thank you to Paula Cross for leading our workout today and also a huge thank you to @dorismillerymca for housing our event! 😊💖 And congratulations to our raffle winners! 🤑 #AKA1908 💗💚 #SensationalSouthCentral #AKAPinkGoesRed 💖 #PinkGoesRed #HeartHealth#ItsASeriousMatter #HealthIsWealth 🏃🏾‍♀️🏋🏾‍♀️🤸🏾‍♀️🚴🏾‍♀️ #NowIHaveTwoRedShirts 😜 #IvyBox #EastWaco #Waco
#OOTD ✊🏾 I said this in a talk I did on Monday, and I'll share it here. Social media is a great platform for sharing facts and information about influential people to be celebrated this month. As you scroll through the various posts highlighting black icons, inventors, and intellectuals, I challenge each of you to pick at least three people you may not be as familiar with and develop more than a surface-level appreciation for them. Really dive into who they were and what led them to make and/or do what they did. Furthermore, what would our lives be like today without the contributions and sacrifices they made? (And if you even dare tell this librarian you don't like to read or don't want to do the research, the second photo is for you.) #DontLetTheSmileFoolYou 👀 #ItsASeriousMatter #BlackHistoryMonth 🖤 #BHM #ItsACelebration #1926 #1970 #BlackGirlTryingToEducateTheWorld

#TBT . I believe this was taken in Belgium at a Music Festival when I sang BVs for an International Singer. Peep my covered shoes. I had on some fresh pink green and black Adidas and I was NOT about to get them messed up in the muddy rain to and from the stage. Lmao. #ItsASeriousMatter damn my stomach was Flat. This was pre babies. Sigh. 🤦🏽‍♀️
