Baby-Led Breastfeeding- The Mother-Baby Dance DVD by Christina Smillie, MD


This Baby-Led Breastfeeding DVD by Christina Smillie, MD displays the power of a newborn's instincts. In this DVD we see mothers leraning to breastfeed naturally- by letting their babies show them how.

This DVD shows mothers letting nature take its course at birth by allowing their babies to seek out the breast naturally.

Like kittens and puppies, human babies are already hardwired to seek out and find the breast. We see mothers learning to breastfeed naturally by letting their babies show them how.

In this DVD we see just how babies can do it when we get out of the babies' way. We also see Kittie Frantz, RN, CPNP-PC, who now uses this same approach in her own practice.

"We don't have to make our babies learn to feed;we just allow them to follow their instincts to learn."

16 min plus 1 hour of BONUS footage.

Biological Nurturing: Laid-Back BF for Mothers DVD


Biological Nurturing®:Laid-back Breastfeeding For Mothers by Suzanne Colson, PhD. Kittie Frantz, RN,CPNP-PC, Nancy Mohrbacher, IBCLC, FILCA

For mothers, lactation consultants, nurses, midwives, childbirth educators, WIC breastfeeding counselors, and others who work with breastfeeding mothers.

•This 28-minute DVD introduces laid-back positions that help mothers breastfeed in greater comfort and enjoy their babies more. In the past, postpartum mothers were instructed to breastfeed lying on their side or sitting up with baby supported by a pillow. This worked for some mothers but many found these positions uncomfortable and struggled with latching difficulties.

•You will see ethnically diverse mothers and babies in a variety of settings: a delivery room, a postpartum hospital room after a cesarean birth, at home in bed, on a couch, in different chairs, and in an outdoor café. Each environment illustrates a different aspect of how Biological Nurturing makes early mothering and breastfeeding easier and more satisfying.

•When baby is on his tummy snuggled up to mom’s breast, magic happens for both of them! Baby’s reflexes awaken when his whole body is touching hers and mom can more easily respond with loving gestures because she has one or both hands free.

•These positions work in harmony with gravity to reduce the "work" of breastfeeding, making it easier to let baby nurse as long as he needs to while mother achieves complete relaxation and greater oxytocin release.

•Bonus footage explains why one mother found breastfeeding challenging in a rocking chair, an excellent teaching tool on how body dynamics can affect breastfeeding.

This DVD is a perfect baby shower gift and ideal teaching for prenatal and breastfeeding classes, hospital closed-circuit television (with contractual permission), doctors’ offices, breastfeeding mother-support groups, and WIC clinics. Mothers watching it realize how easy and wonderful breastfeeding can be. It doesn’t have to be difficult anymore.

This DVD is divided into chapters for easy navigation.

Total time is 28 min plus bonus features. 2011

Birth Ambassadors: Doula & the Re-Emergence of Woman-Supported Birth in America by Christine Morton with Elayne Clift
Birth Ambassadors by Christine Morton with Elayne Clift documents the social history of the emergence of doula care in the United States. What are doulas and where did they come from? Why do women become doulas? What does it mean to be a doula?

Birth Ambassadors is the only book to fully answer these questions by connecting narrative accounts with critical sociological analysis of the dilemmas and issues embodied in doula history and practice.It interviews with currently practicing doulas and leaders in the field, Birth Ambassadors argues that the doula role is underpinned by ideological commitments to several overlapping and, at times, conflicting ideas around childbirth.

The book explores how this constellation of beliefs within doula practice represents an innovative yet problematic response within the maternity reform movement to empower women during and after childbirth.

Doulas are ambassadors to the world of birth, highlighting women’s emotional experience of birth in settings where beliefs and practices of the participants (the woman, her family, the nurses, midwives and obstetricians) are sometimes in conflict.

For doulas to fulfill their goal of entering mainstream maternity care, they and their organizations face critical challenges.
