Another year coming to and end - which means another beginning is soon to follow as well! So many cycles happening here with Esali Birth... the joy and amazement is never ending!
If you're looking for a great stocking stuffer - or a quick last minute gift for a childbearing family in your life - Esali Birth mentoring gift certificates (which can be used on the website or locally) are available in multiple increments to cover digital classes, web-based mentoring sessions, complete series, and local doula support. You can visit my mentoring page for more details on all the services gift certificates can cover and purchase certificates there or here:
Be sure to check out the Man's Guide to Birth... a digital pocket-style holistic guide just for dad (that moms can certainly benefit from as well) for the childbearing year.
Baby Basket Subscriptions are great for a stocking stuffer AND a gift that keeps on giving. The Esali Baby Basket subscription box is a holistic hands-on craft style prenatal prep plus birth education and knowledge for years to come! Single boxes available, too!
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this journey and looking forward to a beautiful holiday spent enjoying what matters most in this world! Wishing you an amazing Christmas... and amazing whatever holiday it is that you may be celebrating... and a wonderful New Year! No matter what it is you may be intentionally celebrating this time of year across the world - it is a time for so many to reflect on traditions and times long ago - and some still very prevalent - especially in the childbearing circles.
Tell me... what are you remembering this season?
Love and Blessings,
Labor is amazing. It is intrinsically female, and yet contains many male qualities. It is fluid and unyielding all at […]
That’s what Esali Birth believes in… that you are capable of handling the truth, the wide ranges of choices (from unassisted birth to elective cesareans), and how this affects the health and happiness of the family unit.

The birth team works best when everyone supports each other and negativity is thrown out of the mix. A doula is best used when physically and emotionally supporting the mother.

Babywearing provides an easy way to integrate baby into your life by offering options to keep the little one close to your heart where they’re comfortable, skin-to-skin to regulate temperature, easy nursing access, and flexibility so you can be hands free for cooking, cleaning, shopping, eating, and many other tasks new mothers may find difficult while adjusting to life with a new baby.

A few words regarding the recovery period from birth and those who want to visit the family and meet the new baby. This is what a mother and father may be feeling postpartum, so please, when a loved one has a baby – don’t expect to visit them soon after birth, and if you do – always call first (at a reasonable hour).

Family and friends often want to be a big part of the postpartum period to get to know the newest little one. In many other cultures, family and friends in the community are a large part of the postpartum period to allow mom to get to know her baby and rest after birth. In the American culture, a lot of friends and family have be accustomed to wanting to visit with the new baby, playing, holding, and feeding. This cultural difference can make a big difference in the postpartum period for families. It is very important that postpartum help is of a positive manner and mom is not spending her time entertaining guests or dealing with a fussy baby from overstimulation.
