Prior to the hot weather I spoke on ABC radio about making sure you and baby stay safe and healthy during the heat. Have a listen if you are interested.

This is so true! If we take care of the basics - kindness, reciprocity, being genuine - we can make such a difference to each other’s lives! #mymidwivesfamily

When most people talk about birth they think about - and worry about - the pain or other medical aspects. If instead we focus on how much we can all use the experience to show the birthing mum how much she is loved imagine how different every birth will be. 📷 @migawki_z_narodzin

Tip #10 and my final tip for this run of 10 tips in 10 days......

this is YOUR pregnancy, birth, baby (& frankly ‘life’) so pick the info you want, the supporters you want, your village and tell everyone else ‘thanks for the advice but I am good’.

You can only listen to so much. Things people tell you are completely contradictory. Trends and evidence and what’s available changes. Everyone, every pregnancy birth baby is different!! Your village could start with close friends, a midwife, doula, mothers group, partner and a few others.....make one that is strong and tight enough to endure the rough patches.

To endure if a few villagers leave (😂) or if you need to have a holiday from the village for a while! I also believe in this techno age a few trusted sites are great.... on instagram we @australianbirthstories @thefirsthello @takebackpostpartum @rockstarbirthmag @birthwithoutfear and for her pictures @monetnicolebirths . This is not to say other sites are not awesome but these one seriously rock! We also love www.bellybelly.com.au on Facebook and as a website for Australian resources. Obviously if you have specific issues you may need some special people in your village like a psychologist or a Physio/Chiro/Osteopath or who knows what else..... its perfect to have whoever and whatever you need. But the focus is YOU and if you don’t feel that you are surrounded by people who support you find different people!

Don’t let any criticism rock you. Come talk to us! I can honestly say that I answer every DM and email and help with all that I can. This time is special - and so are you.

Tip #9 It is amazing how a cup of tea(coffee/herbal/chai) can resolve so many things.
The simple act of sitting and having a warm drink especially with a friend, family member or partner to talk to can really help. I always suggest adding your midwife to the list of people to have on the cuppa list. Having a regular mothers group is invaluable in just getting regular time out of the house #newmum #mumlife #cuppatime #brisbanemum #brisbanemums #melbournemum #melbournemums #perthmums #perthmum #toowoomba #cupoftea
