New Generation Birth & Oils. Have you ever wondered where the name came from? If you have then you're in luck because here's the explanation!
We all have ancesestors that in some way made us into who we are today. My great grandparents on my mother's side were born in Sicily and immigrated to the United States in the early 1900s. Childbirth and medicine in those days looked extremely different than what it does now. Obstetricians were gaining popularity, and consequently, birth moved out of the home and into the hospital. When my grandmother was having babies in the mid 1900s, she had to labor without her husband in the room to support her. That's just the way it was done. The 1950s brought the dawn of formula companies and the idea that it was somehow better than mother's milk, which is perfectly desgined to fuel our babies. The 1960s and beyond has changed the way we view childbirth even more from dads now being allowed (and even now encouraged!) to be present in the delivery room, the rise in cesarean, and now the rise in out of hospital births.
The more we know, the better we do.
As a mom, my hearts desire is for the New Generation to be better than the last. Better spiritually, physically, emotionally, and mentally. We learn as we go along and pass down what we know to our children so they can make wise decisions and have success in every area of their life. My parents did this for me, and I am doing it for my children.
Last night my 6 year old woke me up to ask me for the "stuff to help her sleep (aka Lavender essential oil) Rule #1 children: Don't ever wake me up to help you sleep. That's just weird. But because I'm such an awesome loving mom (haha) I helped the little dear out and applied Lavender to the bottoms of both feet and kissed her little head off to bed. At breakfast this morning she told me that whatever the magic potion was that I gave her REALLY worked! My 9 year old chimed in and agreed that she thinks "natural" methods really work a lot better than "regular" ones. These kids are catching on early.
Be confident in your decisions. Take childbirth classes and start giving your baby the best with a positive mindset while they are your womb. Set the example for your kids. Let them see you exercising, eating healthy, cooking at home, drinking water throughout the day, reading your Bible, giving, spreading love.... all those things that help them grow important areas of their life.
Your grandchildren and great grandchildren will thank you for it as they rise up and take their place in the world.
