Amazing Doula Diana Figurski!

Murrieta Doula Diana Figurski
This is the sweetest picture!! This strong mama is anchored by her sweetheart and held up by Doula Diana. The piece of fabric Diana is using is called a rebozo.
Side by side a doula and a father work together to support the laboring mom-each in their own unique way.

Mommies, Daddies and Babies

The interesting thing about an arrival is that it is not an ending but a beginning of something new. The sweet arrival of a baby is no different. We can find joy and peace in the preparation and planning of each step.  With each arrival we create new memories that we can enjoy and revel in. Preparing for and giving birth are monumental steps on our path of parenthood. The early weeks with our little one can be blissful and daunting all at the same time.  It is a journey filled with Amazing Arrivals. What does yours look like?

Placenta Time in Temecula!!

Could you imagine you little one spending 40 weeks+ in this snuggly space?  
In this picture I have laid out the placenta to make prints. An archival safe paper is carefully placed over the placenta and will pick on the blood creating a print of the placenta. FYI- Not every family asks for prints. I understand that not everyone would like this and only make them on request at no extra charge. 
I apologize for blurriness of the pictures. My phone is in a ziplock bag of sanitary purposes. I am also taking the picture one handed, which doesn't help. :)
Every family is a little different in what placenta products they would like. In this picture there are the placenta pills, placenta tincture and the placenta prints. Something else this family enjoyed is that I processed the placenta in their home. This is a fun thing to do for families who want to enjoy and watch the process.
So many benefits from our placenta! 
Are you curious? 
Call today for a consultation!

Dads Are Awesome!

Birth of Sloane

You would think after 4 and half years of being a doula that I would be kinda tired of watching birth videos. Nope!  My poor kids still have to warn their friends to avert their eyes if they walk by the computer while I am on it. Today I add another favorite to my list. The Home Birth of Sloane is very modest- no private parts shown. My favorite part through the whole thing is the father.  He is so intent on his wife. A beautiful example of two becoming one.
This beautiful laboring mother is an amazing example of patience, perseverance and trust. Trust in her body and trust with her beautiful birth team. Love her!!
This video also has one of the few times that I have seen cord burning. Instead of clipping the cord with scissors it is separated by the flame of two candles. To learn more visit

Breastfeeding Pictures

I am working on my curriculum for the breastfeeding class that I will be teaching at Loma Linda Murrieta
starting in July. I am so through the roof excited!! I am super visual so I am pulling together a ton of pictures and activities to help the learning process. I just had to share some of my favorite pictures that I have come across.
I find it fascinating that this family felt it was important to have mom breastfeeding in their family portrait. How I wish I could them questions about their life.

Can you spot the mom breastfeeding in this picture of a church congregation? (Hint: She is actually on the front row)

We need more public ads and support like this awesome poster from the 1930's

Doulas and Midwives

This is a slide show that shares some beautiful moments in the birth process. It features some of my favorite people and birth photographers, Robin Baker with Birth Blessings and Catie Stephens of Vuefinder Photography. These ladies are true artists. They understand birth and know how to capture the vast beauty that few of us get to witness or remember.

Butterflies and Due Dates

As our dues dates get closer and then pass us by it is so tempting to seek ways to help encourage things along.  This might help give us some more thoughtful patience:

Caterpillars spend most of their days crawling around eating leaves. Somehow, and we
don't know why, they know when it's time to build their cocoon, and they know when it's
time to come out. As a child, we might have come upon a cocoon with a butterfly almost
ready to come out. We might have heard a loud noise from the beating of wings against
the side of the cocoon, and as children we didn't know any better, so we might have been
tempted to “help out” the butterfly. But we all know now that butterflies who are “helped
out” early have a much tougher time. They beat their wings against the side of the cocoon
to remove moisture from their wings. It's part of an important process for the butterfly.
Humans are similar to butterflies in this way. Unless there is a medical reason, it's best to
wait until the baby is ready to be born. It's tempting to “help out” butterflies and our birth
statistics show it's tempting to “help out” babies early, but babies and butterflies do best
when they do it without intervention/induction.

Singing to The Baby by Penny Simkin

Such a beautiful video about singing to baby while in utero. There is some birth nudity, breasts, but a sweet example of what it looks like after birth. My favorite part of this video is when the big sister, who is a toddler, sings to her sibling. Although the father singing Happy Birthday in Spanish is a close second!

Best Diaper Changing Technique for Newborns to Reduce Colic

How to diaper a baby 101. This is seriously brilliant. This is not your typical diaper change routine where you hold the baby's feet in the air and wipe. I wish I had know this when my kiddos were infants.
