Birthings Issue 130 Winter 2016 – The Baby Bubble




The Baby Bubble

“The Baby Bubble, it is a crucial and sacred time to connect, settle and heal. The first hug, the first feed, initiating family connection, healing and adjustments after birth, and so on.

How have you prepared for your time after birth?

It is the nature of our choice of birth and our community, that we have a lot of support to be well prepared for birth.

This issue is packed with great articles about preparing and supporting for that safe, comfortable and a healing ‘baby bubble’ that new mothers and new babies should enjoy. There is an interesting article about different styles of postpartum care in various cultures.

We also have a special interview with the amazing, recently retired, independent homebirth midwife Betty Vella who has been there to support homebirthing women for many years. She shares her wisdom, passion and experience with many birthing mothers as well as many birth professionals. And of course there is a handful of beautiful birth stories you will love. So I hope you will enjoy this issue of Birthings as much as I have! Stay empowered and inspired! – BITNA CASTILLO Birthings Editor
