Next Positive Birth Group Meeting is Feb 27 at 7pm

childbirth courses, maternity classes, positive birth

Our last Positive Birth Group meeting went well. January’s theme was images of birth. Our discussion centred around how media has created our visual images of birth and how we can change that images we hold in our mind by watching videos of good births.  We also shared some of our favorite birth videos including my life birth footage and some of my inspirations.

The next Positive Birth Movement Meeting is coming up Wednesday, February 27 at 7pm.

The theme for this month is ‘Language of Birth’.

childbirth courses, maternity classesDo the words we use around birth and do they matter? What are the words? How do they make you feel?  Is it a ‘contraction’, a ‘surge’, or a ‘rush’? Is a baby ‘delivered’ ‘caught’ or something else? Is labour ‘painful’, or ‘powerful’? What words do people associate with birth and are these helpful or unhelpful?

We will start with our theme and will also discuss anything that comes up for those pregnant mamas and papas who attend. Continue reading

What’s Your Problem?

Many people think that their problem is the pain they feel. In fact many of us will go on ignoring our pain until that pain finally interferes with something we need or love and we finally take action on it.

But pain itself is not the problem. Pain is not a condition to be treated, although I just had a patient start in the office “diagnosed” with chronic neck pain. Chronic neck pain is not a condition, no pain is a condition, it is merely a symptom. It is a signal.

Just like the sound of your smoke detector is not a problem, it is a signal. If you turn off the smoke detector you have not solved anything all you did was turn off the signal.

Symptoms are not the first thing to show up when something is malfunctioning. Pain shows up when we exceed our are ability to adapt to the malfunction.

So when someone presents to our office in pain, we understand that you have hit your limit and it is impacting your ability to live your best life but we don’t want to focus on it.

Our goal is not to get rid of your pain. We don’t want to turn off your signal, numb your body, or say to your feedback system that we don’t care what you are telling us. What we want to do is respect that pain for what it is. Your body’s alarm system that something is malfunctioning.

From there we want to move forward and restore normal function to the body and help you understand the basic fundamentals you need to live your best life.

Positive Birth Movement

There is a movement starting and you can be a part of it.

WHAT IS ‘POSITIVE BIRTH’?

The Positive Birth Movement believes that every woman deserves a positive birth. But what does this mean?

A positive birth means a birth in which a woman feels she has freedom of choice, access to accurate information, and that she is in control, powerful and respected. A birth that she approaches, perhaps with some trepidation, but without fear or dread, and that she then goes on to enjoy, and later remember with warmth and pride.

A positive birth does not have to be ‘natural’ or ‘drug free’ – it simply has to be informed from a place of positivity as opposed to fear. The Positive Birth Movement is woman-centred and as such respects a woman’s human right to choose where and how she has her baby.

You can birth with positivity in hospital or at home, with or without medical intervention. You can have a positive caesarian, or a positive home water birth. Positive Birth is about approaching birth realistically, having genuine choice, and feeling empowered by your experience.

The Positive Birth Movement believes that communication is the key to shaking up birth. By coming together, in real life and online, and sharing experiences, feelings, knowledge and wisdom, women can take back childbirth.

What is a Positive Birth Group?

Positive Birth Groups listed on this site are all FREE to access, and POSITIVE about birth.

They are a place for ALL pregnant women – regardless of their background, experience or choices – to come together and share experiences, thoughts, feelings and insight about childbirth. There is often also tea and cake!

Some are run by birth professionals such as Doula’s, Midwives, or Childbirth teachers. Others are facilitated by women who are simply passionate about birth as a positive experience.

Positive Birth Groups aim to be a helpful part of your pregnancy; a warm and welcoming place to hear stories and ideas, to consider what you really want from your childbirth experience, and to challenge any fears or negative expectations you might have.

To find out more specific details about our group, please contact Dr. Nancy.

Ottawa – Ontario – Positive Birth Ottawa

Picture This group is open to moms and dads looking for positive information about birth and an opportunity to connect with and gain support from other like-minded parents.

We meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 7pm at Marketplace Family Chiropractic Centre, 80 Marketplace Avenue, Unit J2 Barrhaven.

2013 Meeting dates: January 23; February 27; March 27; April 24; May 22; June 26; July 24; August 28; September 25; October 23;November 27.

Facilitator: Nancy Salgueiro

“Women have been successfully birthing babies since the beginning of time and I believe YOU can do it to. I have had three incredibly wonderful natural home birth experiences in 2006, 2009, and 2011. I have supported many women through pregnancy and birth. I have seen how information, support, and belief in yourself, your baby, and birth can transform women, families, and lives forever.”

“For me an empowered birth is one where I am the one who makes the decisions for me and my baby. Where I am in an environment of love, support, and respect for the power within my body to successfully birth my baby. Where I can be free to express anything I need to express; sound, movement, fear, love, ecstasy in a place that my expression will not lead to interference from the outside. I believe women have the ability to create an empowering birth experience regardless of if the birth outcome is natural, medicated, or surgical. When women are making the decisions for their bodies and their babies out of education, faith, belief and confidence in themselves and not out of fear or manipulation they will be empowered. I believe in the human body, in it’s power, and in birth’s ability to transform a person, woman, wife, and mother.”

Is the Flu Shot Safe for Kids?

This article comes from Australia, who have banned Fluvax due to adverse reactions and questions of safety.

“Unprecedented decision to ban nationally all the seasonal flu vaccines for the under-5s.”

“Fluvax, the predominant vaccine, was triggering febrile fits in one in every 100 children – 10 times the expected rate. The side-effects, in some cases, were severe, and no-one could explain what had caused them.”

“By the time Fluvax was suspended, health departments across the country had notified the TGA of 410 adverse reactions among children younger than five.”

“To stop two or three children going to intensive care we had to immunise 600,000 people,” he says. “We need to be very careful before we recommend universal vaccination against influenza every year until we have better data. Otherwise we’re talking about faith-based medicine, instead of evidence-based medicine.”

“What is telling, however, is how lackadaisical health professionals – those in the front-line of any pandemic – have been about vaccinating themselves. The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare has discovered that barely one in four health and community workers bothered to get the free pandemic flu shot in 2009 – compared to 19 per cent of the adult population generally. Last year, just 6 per cent of children and 18 per cent of adults had been vaccinated against the flu. Asked why they shunned the flu shot, one in every six people cited “problems”, saying they thought the vaccine was “rushed and unsafe”.”

“The 2009 version of Fluvax was not tested in children, Greenberg explains, because “it is not routine to do clinical trials in children, it’s not required”.”
