We are so excited that @babygotshack will be a vendor at the @labor_of_love_fair in August! You can read below to learn a bit about Tonya and her passion for her business 😊❤️I became passionate about what goes in our bodies a few years ago when I was always sick and my future reeked of “forever medicine”. I started researching and realized all my health issues were caused by toxins ingested and topically used.

I begin my hike by “detoxing” from sugars, processed foods, shampoo and deodorant (and so much more). My life changed from that first step! Not only did I lose weight but my overall health improved and I require no medications for my “illnesses” anymore.

My experience made me want to help others.

I believe in starting at birth (and before) to keep our babies healthy so I cater to women and babies/children. The world revolves around our children and our future depends upon their health and wellbeing.

By making clean-living choices available for mothers and their babies, I am encouraging a healthier tomorrow.

If you are interested in changing your lifestyle, I will be more than happy to talk & help you.

Did you know, even if you have an epidural, you don't necessarily have to labor and give birth laying flat on your back? While this is a common position, it actually puts weight on the sacrum (large tailbone at the base of the spine) and it is therefore unable to move out of the way during delivery.

By moving in to different positions, you can take some weight off of the sacrum and allow your pelvis to expand, making it easier for the baby to move through the birth canal.

Posted @withrepost • @courtneymorganphotography You may have seen me post about the Labor of Love Fair, but didn't quit know what it was all about.  It's about amazingness.  Amazing resources, information, and products for expecting and growing families.  And the best part?  All right here in our community.  Over the next couple of months, I will be sharing a series about the vendors participating in the @labor_of_love_fair.  But first, I sat down with founders Chelsea and Elizabeth, to learn more.  Here's the link (copy and paste in your browser): https://www.courtneymorganphotography.com/single-post/2019/06/06/A-True-Labor-of-Love

Today we are featuring vendor @wholefoodworks Meet Lyndsay and Leann and learn how they can help with nutrition during pregnancy, after, or anytime for anyone ❤️My name is Lyndsay Harris, I am a stay at home mama with my beautiful 1 year old daughter Lyla Ann. I am married to Leanne’s son, John. I am certified to teach but chose to stay home with my daughter. 
I am passionate about educating other moms and friends about the importance of whole food nutrition during pregnancy, postpartum while nursing, and giving our little ones plant based food as they grow. 
Sometimes it is difficult to get broccoli, beets and kale into your families mouths, that is why we eat and share whole food concentrates with everyone we love, especially picky eaters. 
Juice Plus+ is the product line we love for many reasons. This is produce that has been juiced for us with the nutritious skins and peels still on. It's easy, delicious, safe and clean and is the most researched nutritional product of it’s kind in the world.
We cannot wait to meet you and share a smoothie with you. Lyndsay Harris. https://lyndsaywray.juiceplus.com/us/en
I have always thought of pregnancy as the first lesson in motherhood. Babies have a mind of their own and they tend to decide on their own debut!

Today the @labor_of_love_fair is featuring vendor @sarahsbeautysidebar Self-care is so important for parents! Come to the fair and  let Sarah show you products to help you at least look at little less sleep deprived 😉My name is Sarah Kil and I am an independent distributor for SeneGence International. 
We offer makeup and skincare for all ages! I never wore makeup before SeneGence but found LipSense (a long lasting lip color - smudge proof, mug proof, and kiss proof) and fell in love! 
As a momma of 2 kids under the age of 5, I don't have a ton of time in the morning to do all the makeup and y'all look at my tired face in the before pic! My tired is tired. 😂 
I have 3 products that I use to brighten things up a bit and look less tired. These 3 products can be applied all under 5 minutes! And I can't wait to show you!
This time is so important for a mum and baby and is highly recommended where possible. #goldenhour #skintoskin #mummylife #daddylife #babylife #postnatal #labour #benefits #homebirh #birth #allbirths #allbabies
We are strong and it’s a disservice that we don’t teach this to women. What a different world we would have if all women knew their strength.

The @labor_of_love_fair Is pleased to welcome @haleylynnephotography as vendor! Read below to learn a bit more about Haley ❤️😊My name is Haley Russell. This last year, I graduated from TWU with a degree in Family Studies and Sociology. My passion truly is serving women and children. I’m a local photographer dedicated to storytelling and capturing authentic moments. I offer maternity, family, birth, Fresh48, and lifestyle newborn sessions. This last year, I recently teamed up with Inanna Birth and Women’s Care here in Denton and have absolutely loved getting to learn and build a relationship with them and their community. When I’m not serving families and mommas, I’m likely working a wedding or spending time with my sweet pups. I am so excited to be attending as a vendor this year and can’t wait to meet your sweet faces!
The @labor_of_love_fair is pleased to Welcome Earth Mama Doula Services as a vendor! Read below to learn more about Jamie and her services ❤️My name is Jamie aka Earth Mama Doula Services! I’ve always known that helping people was my purpose on this earth. I’ve also always known that supporting and empowering women is something I’m meant to do. 
Birth is sacred, beautiful, and I plan to treat it as such.  I offer mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional support for both the mother and the partner. 
I want both the mother and partner to be educated about pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. I will be there every step of the way offering my support and education. I will be on call for any concerns and questions. 
I want every family to walk away from their birth experience happy and in love, and it will be my honor to share that with you! 
Not only do I offer labor support, I offer support at home to make sure the transition with a new baby is smooth. Also so parents can get some sleep. 
I’m a recently certified birth and postpartum doula through International Doula Institute.
Today the @labor_of_love_fair is featuring our wonderful vendor Birth Boot Camp. You can read more about how they can empower you with knowledge before your birth ❤️Birth Boot Camp is a comprehensive childbirth education curriculum geared toward providing the knowledge for truly informed consent. Rebecca Grochowski offers six different classes, ranging from one day to ten weeks, so you can select which one works for your birth journey! The goal of Birth Boot Camp is to help you have an amazing birth experience! Birth Boot Camp also provides trained and professional doulas, such as Lavondria Williams, to complete your birth team. Find an instructor or doula near you at www.birthbootcamp.com.
What exactly does a doula do?

A doula is someone who empowers a woman in her transition into motherhood.  She provides information, support, and reassurance to expecting families, helps the mother explore her options for the birth experience, and encourages partners to be involved. 
A doula explains and demonstrates various comfort measures during labor and advocates for the mother to follow her body in birth's natural, physiological process.  Did you know, according to the Cochrane Library, in a study of over 15,000 women, that birthing people with doulas are less likely to be dissatisfied with their birth experience?

As I am going through the DONA Certification process, my birth doula rates are discounted for a limited time. If you or anyone you know is looking for an informed and positive birth experience, I would be happy to meet with you to explore your options!

The @labor_of_love_fair is so pleased to have @friscomidwife attending the fair! You can read below to learn more about Margie and the Frisco Birth Center ❤️Pregnancy, birth and parenthood can be an intense and overwhelming time!  I have been helping parents create a safe, satisfying, memorable birth that reflects both their preferences and best evidence since 1997 — first as a doula, then Lamaze faculty, and now, since 2015 a midwife!  Frisco Birth Center, in the heart of Old Town Frisco is Frisco’s first and only full-service birth center.  It’s a quaint, affordable, comfortable birth space for people who prefer community birth but not in their own home.  We specialize in community-based birth — in your home or ours.  Your birth.  Your way.  Our services include all of your care from the week you find out you are pregnant through the first 6 weeks after you become a parent!  We’ll help you every step of the way.
Swing by our website, ‪FriscoMidwife.com‬, to learn more about us and contact us for a free consult and tour. Or give us a ring at ‪469-643-9433‬ (which spells 469-MID-WIFE). We’d love to meet you!

@cwbirthdoula and I are so excited to be partnering with Denton County Friends of the Family and collecting donations of diapers, wipes, formula, and other needed baby items from guests attending the fair in exchange for raffle tickets. All extra monies raised by the @labor_of_love_fair after operating costs are covered will also be donated to them. We are so happy to be able to help this wonderful organization. Below you can read more about the organization and the services they provide ❤️Denton County Friends of the Family (DCFOF) provides compassionate, comprehensive services to those impacted by rape, sexual abuse, and domestic violence, while partnering with our community to promote safety, hope, healing, justice, and prevention. In 1980, when DCFOF first started, they had two employees assisted by 32 volunteers and a small shelter that could only house eight women and one child. Today, DCFOF has grown into an agency with over 70 staff employees, over 600 volunteers yearly, a shelter that can house up to 32 people in addition to an Outreach Office, and two satellite offices with a third opening in June 2019. DCFOF’s growth has created the opportunity for them to provide the following free services to their clients:
·  Emergency Shelter
·  Transitional Housing
·  24-Hour Crisis Line
·  Advocacy & Case Management Services
·  Survivor Advocacy Team
·  Legal Services
·  Play Therapy for Children
·  Activity Therapy for Teens
·  Individual and Group Adult Counseling
·  Prevention, Education, and Awareness Program
·  Food Pantry
·  Childcare
·  Thrift Store 
To learn more about DCFOF’s services, or how you can get involved to support victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, please visit www.dcfof.org.
So looking forward to attending the MVP meeting @royalsurreymaternityvoices on Friday 24th 10-12.30pm.
I will be talking all things Hypnobirthing and how it can support you to prepare for a positive birth 💗

Our co-coordinator @cwbirthdoula is running a special on her services! Check out her profile for details 💕
An introduction to what we cover in #Blissborn Class 1. 
Identify your VAK so that you can support yourself in going deeper to that place of peace and comfort.  Easily and enjoyably explore mind-body exercises so that you can better understand the relationship. And acquaint yourself with an understanding of hypnosis and the subconscious and conscious mind in a comfortable, unintimidating setting. Next, imagine closing the class with a profoundly relaxing and deeply meaningful hypnosis session... This class was designed for #naturalbirth , but it can be an important support for #allbirths .

Mamas, breastfeeding can be really difficult at first. It might seem overwhelming and difficult, but it DOES get better! Keep in mind that this relationship between you and baby is new and that while you’re both made for this, it does take an adjustment period and it is a journey.  Just like anything new, in the beginning it takes practice, patience, time, and effort. 
If you’re really struggling, please seek out help from an IBCLC who can dramatically assist in your breastfeeding journey. The relationship and health benefits (for both mom and baby) are worth it in the end. Before long, you’ll be a breastfeeding pro!

Women should be proud of their bodies! 
Fun Fact: Before pregnancy, the uterus is about the size of a pear and expands throughout pregnancy to accommodate the baby. Around 18-20 weeks the uterus has expended enough to reach the navel area and around 36 weeks it has grown enough to reach the bottom of the rib cage. After birth, the uterus then goes through a process called involution, where in approximately 6 weeks, it goes back to its pre-pregnancy size. 
Women’s bodies are amazing! We should give them the credit and respect they deserve.

There is so much information about birth out there; it is really hard to sift through all the data. This is a great site that provides a lot of knowledge and statistics on subjects about birth. You can even use the search bar to look for specific articles. Birth practices should be evidence-based!

How do doulas help dads? Quite often, dads and significant others want to be part of the birth and they’re afraid the doula will take away from that. It’s quite the opposite! 
Doulas and dads are great at working together. Labor is hard. It’s often long,  strenuous, and tiring. It’s also really difficult to watch someone you love moaning in pain. The sounds of labor are raw, primal, and loud, which is often surprising and difficult for dads to watch. It’s hard for them to grasp that this is productive pain!

While doulas, of course, help the laboring mom, they also help the dad be the best, supportive partner that he can be. All those things you may have learned in childbirth class? It’s hard to remember when you’re put on the spot! Especially for first time dads, the whole experience can feel overwhelming.  A doula helps bring confidence to the birth partner. She is trained in birth and can be a helpful reminder for positions, massage techniques, birth plan wishes, and so forth. She is not there to take over, but instead help guide the dad in supporting his partner. 
Doulas also provide the chance for a break! It’s difficult to care for someone when your stomach rumbles in hunger or your eyes are burning from lack of sleep. We allow partners to rest, help them eat (something that doesn’t smell!) in between contractions, and use the restroom without feeling like they’re abandoning the birthing mom. 
Some of the best birth teams are when dads and doulas have the chance to work together. While a doula knows how to support a laboring mom, she also knows how to support the dad and help him be a rock star birth partner!

Some people think doulas can only help during a natural birth. This is a #myth! Doulas are for all types of birth. When a laboring mom has an epidural, we can help keep her comfortable with massage and other techniques, assist in pain management if the epidural doesn’t fully work, and help the mom get into optimal positions, especially when pushing. Let’s get that baby out!

Doulas can also assist in cesarian births! These are major surgeries and when allowed in the operating room we can assist in keeping the mother calm, helping her know which sensations are normal, let her know what is happening when the baby is away from the mother in the room, and promote skin to skin contact and breastfeeding in the O.R.

Doulas provide continuous physical and emotional support during labor! It doesn’t matter if your labor is over the course of a few hours or a few days. These support mechanisms are to help moms in this formative event. Women remember their births clearly, specifically if they feel supported and listened to or ignored and like this was an event that simply “happened” to them. We are out to make #allbirthsbetter!

The Mama Space is so excited to be sharing The Positive Caesarean Workshop with you now ... This workshop is here to support a woman and her birth partner in planning for a positive Caesarean Birth.

Whether you are electing to have a caesarean birth for personal choice or a medical reason this workshop is for you.

The workshop is aimed at anyone having an Elective Caesarean Birth. 
It may feel like you no longer have any options for your birth if you are planning an elective caesarean birth. We are here to tell you this just isn’t the case. 
There are still many things for you to consider and many steps that you can take to prepare for a positive caesarean birth experience.

During this workshop we will look at exactly what you can expect during the caesarean birth, how to prepare and how to support  recovery afterwards.

If you would like to know more about this 3hr Workshop just ping me a message now or email hello@themamaspace.co.uk

I'm just prepping for the session this weekend and every couple get some brilliant extras to take home that are so helpful in pregnancy and in labour too. Including a pack of my #positiveaffirmation cards (as seen in the picture) two organic aromatherapy roll ons, plus some other little surprises. 😊 In total all the unique brilliant extras I give you on my Hypnobirthing courses are worth a whopping £120! Making my course incredible value for money (which is really important to me), we cover so, so much. 
Let me know if you want to know more, and find out how hypnobirthing can help YOU and your amazing birth partner have a positive and confident birth birth (whereever you birth your baby whatever type of birth you have, whether this is your first or firth birth. 😊)

We can all play a part in changing the narrative of birth in our society. Speak positively and encouragingly to pregnant women who are preparing for birth. Share your positive birth stories generously. Support women in their choices. Teach your daughter to trust in her body’s innate ability to give birth. Choose your language carefully, making the birthing woman active rather than passive, placing her at the centre of birth. Obviously there is a vast variation of ‘normal’ in birth. But there are plenty of negative, scaremongering, fear-filled, dramatic representations of birth out there - you don’t have to be one! 🙌🏾
.
A BIG part of hypnobirthing is the work you do in advance - creating a positive perception of birth will completely transform the way you experience it. It sounds simple and it is - but it’s also hard work, highly effective, and powerful stuff 💥
.
Cultivating a positive mindset is like tending a garden. Sure, plants grow all by themselves - but if you water, feed and nurture them they’ll produce the most beautiful blooms. Imagine what we could achieve if we all worked together 💦🌻💚

Today’s featured vendor who will be at the @labor_of_love_fair in August is @tarahcraigchamberlin  We are so excited that she will be joining us!

Gentle caesarean birth, also known as family-centred or woman-centred caesarean birth, is something I hear more and more people talking about. And that’s great! 🌟
.
Whether you’re having a planned or elective caesarean, or you’re just thinking about your wishes in the event that your birth takes this direction on the day, it’s great to record your caesarean birth preferences as part of your birth plan ✍🏻
.
To celebrate Caesarean Birth Awareness Month here are a few suggestions you may like to consider in your caesarean birth preferences:
.
🐢Request that the surgeon allows your baby to be born as slowly as possible through the incision - this will create a more gentle birth for your little one (hence the term ‘gentle caesarean’)
🤩 ask for the drapes to be lowered so you can see as your baby is born (if you want to!)
💕 suggestions to facilitate immediate skin to skin: wear your gown back to front (with the opening at the front), ask for any ECG dots to be placed on your back, have your IV placed in your non-dominant hand, ask for your baby to be placed straight onto your body rather than being cleaned/wrapped/examined
🕰 opt for delayed cord clamping
🎵 create a relaxing environment by requesting that your own music is played and that the lights are dimmed in theatre
💆🏽‍♀️ use your hypnobirthing breathing and relaxation techniques to help you stay calm and have a wonderful positive birth experience!
.
As with any birth, it may not always be possible to have everything exactly as you choose. But by communicating your wishes you are giving those looking after you the chance of supporting you in achieving them!

The @labor_of_love_fair vendor we are spotlighting today is Allesanda Griffitt. We are so happy that she will be joining us! Read below to learn a bit more about her and her work 😊  Allesanda Griffitt of On Your Journey is a wife and mother to three - a 2.5 year old boy and 6 months old boy/girl twins. It was after the birth of her first that she decided to become a doula. Her passion lies with csection and vbac moms, particularly moms of Multiples.

In addition to birth support, she also offers EcoBaby consultations and workshops where parents learn common household toxins and how to get rid of them before or for baby. She assists with setting up a green registry and nursery and teaches parents which chemicals to avoid around littles. 
She also offers infant sleep education and consultations that focus on a holistic approach and what is best for the whole family without breaking Attachment. No quick fixes here! She helps build healthy sleep habits that pay off big in the long run. 
On Your Journey loves guiding parents to succeed in birth and beyond!
‭ 🤔So, what exactly is Hypnobirthing?🤔 Don’t worry, I do NOT know the secrets of mind control, and will NOT have you running around the maternity unit clucking like a chicken🐓

It’s actually a lot simpler than that. Dare I say, some of it may even be considered common sense stuff. It’s a logical, straightforward approach that changes the way we perceive labour and birth. ✨By ditching the fear, you can grab control of your birth experience, and empower yourself to have the best possible birth for both you and your baby👶🏻✨ What’s not to love? 😍

Book yourself onto a course today- you will not regret it!

Chelsea and I have a vision for the @labor_of_love_fair Our goal is to create a space for families that is full of options. Options that they may not have known were even available to them when it comes to birthing their babies. Even if they’ve already decided on support for the birth of their baby, we hope to provide many options as to how they might document and celebrate that birth. And finally it’s not only about the birth itself, but all the things that come after. Support for that special, sometimes overwhelming time, is just as important. And providing something cute to wear for it all is important too 😊 It is our vision to bring all of the people who can provide these things to the people who need them. Please join us on August 25, 2019 to help our vision become reality. Visit our profile and/or Facebook event for more details- Elizabeth

I've just created a blog post on my website and a live video over on FB (links in bio) all about TENS as a comfort measure and pain reliever in labour and birth. Head over to find out all about what it is, how it works and the pro and cons too. Knowing ALL of your options and choices in pregnancy, labour and birth is so, so very important. That's why my Hypnobirthing and Birth Preparation courses give you all the information, all the knowledge - to make the right choices for you and your baby on the day. 👌 👌 👌
And you can hire a TENS machine for FREE from me when you come along to my courses too (saving yourself £25) because babies and pregnancy can be expensive right. 😊

Meet @everyonefelthappy!
Elizabeth is a wife and mother to three of the coolest kids I’ve ever met. My favorite nieces and nephews, for sure!
Beth loves to craft, and her party decorations are known for being extravagant in the best way! When you step into a party she’s done you’ll feel transported to the world she’s created - it’s magical. She also makes the sweetest little onesies, nursery decor - like mobiles, and unique jewelry - even some for anxiety relief. My son is obsessed with his Doctor Who mobile! 
I’m grateful to have this driven, organized woman by my side to make this fair happen. It wouldn’t be as special with anyone else ♥️-Chelsea

The Mama Space is so excited to be sharing The Positive Caesarean Workshop with you now ... This workshop is here to support a woman and her birth partner in planning for a positive Caesarean Birth.

Whether you are electing to have a caesarean birth for personal choice or a medical reason this workshop is for you.

The workshop is aimed at anyone having an Elective Caesarean Birth. 
It may feel like you no longer have any options for your birth if you are planning an elective caesarean birth. We are here to tell you this just isn’t the case. 
There are still many things for you to consider and many steps that you can take to prepare for a positive caesarean birth experience.

During this workshop we will look at exactly what you can expect during the caesarean birth, how to prepare and how to support  recovery afterwards.

If you would like to know more about this 3hr Workshop just ping me a message now or email hello@themamaspace.co.uk

Today we are featuring vendor @wholefoodworks Meet Lyndsay and Leann and learn how they can help with nutrition during pregnancy, after, or anytime for anyone ❤️My name is Lyndsay Harris, I am a stay at home mama with my beautiful 1 year old daughter Lyla Ann. I am married to Leanne’s son, John. I am certified to teach but chose to stay home with my daughter. 
I am passionate about educating other moms and friends about the importance of whole food nutrition during pregnancy, postpartum while nursing, and giving our little ones plant based food as they grow. 
Sometimes it is difficult to get broccoli, beets and kale into your families mouths, that is why we eat and share whole food concentrates with everyone we love, especially picky eaters. 
Juice Plus+ is the product line we love for many reasons. This is produce that has been juiced for us with the nutritious skins and peels still on. It's easy, delicious, safe and clean and is the most researched nutritional product of it’s kind in the world.
We cannot wait to meet you and share a smoothie with you. Lyndsay Harris. https://lyndsaywray.juiceplus.com/us/en
