Prenatal Care to create a positive birth, the Midwives’ role – Gail Hart

Written by FairyDoula. Posted in Midwifery notes

  • Humans believe what they see, they also see what they believe
  • Whatever you do the baby will grow and progress
  • Get women to log the baby’s movements, time, duration, then they will begin to know their own normal and will be able to gauge when things change. ” call me if things change”
  • keep your ego in check! The woman, the hospital, the midwife, the doula all work together as a team to create a positive birth
  •  Let women know that routine ultrasounds have not been proven beneficial to birth outcomes
  • Prevention is better than cure, DIET, EXERCISE, HEALTHFUL LIVING all create positive birth experiences
  • Bacterial Vaginosis ( BV) and Group B Strep (GBS) are both considered causes of preterm birth
  • BV overgrowth is allowed by lack of lactobacilli
  • BV and GBS prefer an alkaline environment
  • Nurture the good guys to reduce the bad guys- a good cup of lactobaccili can protect against BV and GBS, yeast, e.coli, and anaerobes
  • Prepare the soil- raise acidity- vinegar rinse- 2tbsp to 1 pint water
  • Plant the seeds- probiotic yogurt- use directly as a cream
  • Slow down the weeds- practice good hygiene- wash your partner! sex can spread BV and GBS
BE ACTIVELY AWARE SUPPORT CONSCIOUS PREGNANCY!
