A Fantastic Website For Expectant Mothers

Rixa at Stand and Deliver just posted a link to a FANTASTIC website for expectant mothers.

They cover Lamaze's 6 Healthy Birth Practices with videos and print materials:

1. Let labor begin on its own.
2. Walk, move around, and change positions throughout labor.
3. Bring a loved one, friend, or doula for continuous support.
4. Avoid interventions that are not medically necessary.
5. Avoid giving birth on your back, and follow your body’s urges to push.
6. Keep your baby with you—it’s best for you, your baby, and breastfeeding.

The website is Mother's Advocate. Definitely worth a visit if you're expecting a baby, will be soon or are just interested in learning more.

And I'm about ready to get started on my pregnancy and birth series, as promised, with a list of some of the very best birth and pregnancy books. Stay tuned!
