What is Conscious Birth? By Guest Blogger Elena Tonetti

Conscious Birth Movement is a very intelligent approach to our species' procreation, where people-making practice is approached responsibly, with full awareness of the implications of how the quality of conception, gestation, birth and postpartum period is affecting the quality of health and emotional well being of a new person and ultimately, of our next generation as a whole.

The main ingredient in Conscious Birth is the loving, deeply aligned, energetic Field created by the future parents, into which they welcome their new baby. Their emotional presence with each other is what allows the baby feel safe and welcomed. In case of the absence of the male partner, a woman can generate that field on her own, even though it would require a different way of sovereign alignment with her higher Self and her Creative Force.

In this context, the actual form of delivery is quite secondary to the importance of the Birthing Field being saturated with Love and mother's ability to surrender and trust the unfolding of the process, as it has it's own underlying multidimensional logic.
Ideally, Conscious Birth starts with conscious conception, when the future parents are on the same page wanting to bring a new human being into this world, researching and practicing nutritional literacy and emotional healing. It also includes birth preparation during gestation, first of all, addressing the issues originated in their own birth trauma, which allows them to gain confidence and strength for the delivery and eliminate possible reasons of complications at birth. It culminates with the empowering, dignified experience of baby's arrival, in a way that both parents feel initiated into becoming a Mother and a Father and the baby feels safe and loved.  Conscious Parenting during the postpartum period completes the picture: breastfeeding, keeping the baby in close proximity as much as possible, avoiding unnecessary painful medical procedures, like immediate cutting of the umbilical cord, circumcision, vaccination, etc, etc...

Of course, we can not always count on the ideal version of this practice and have the necessary resources, support and access to the information. In that case, it's important to remember, that it's never too late to start, even after the child is born. There are uncountable ways of healing and 'harvesting' of the experience that did happen.

It needs to become common knowledge, starting in health ed classes in 7th grade! Better yet, even earlier, when children are asking questions at age of 3 to 6. They need to be explained about the fact that some day they might choose to become parents and have children of their own. It's never too early to embrace conscious way of living and pro-creating.

Why Parenting is the most important job on this planet? By Guest Blogger Elena Tonetti

Our future on this planet is in the hands of those who are now PARENTS or about to become parents.  My plan for thriving, happy, compassionate humankind is very simple: all we need is a critical mass of CHILDREN that are not 'programmed' on pain and suffering during their formative period. In 20 years, the world will belong to them. Babies who were gently and lovingly welcomed into this world are not just ‘wired’ differently, they are wireless!

It is time for us to understand that the huge mess we, the people, have created on this planet is a direct result of parenting practices that were normal for thousands of years. Those who were in charge of human history so far, were severely deprived of mother’s milk, warmth, tenderness, intimate connection, father’s respect, skillful nutrition. We are witnessing where that got us: 250 wars  around the globe, pollution, unsustainable lifestyle…
This mess is so huge that I don’t believe there is anyone, among those who are adults now, who knows what to do with it. The way we are - is what created this mess in the first place…  
In the same manner if the brightness of the TV is set on 'dim', no matter what beautiful colors are in the movie, the picture on the screen would be bleak.  The human nervous system non-cognitively remembers the emotions of pain, fear, loneliness, hunger, anxiety, which we experienced from conception, through pregnancy, birth and the first few years of life; and recognizes them as ‘norm’ for the rest of our life, due to the mechanism called ‘limbic imprinting’.

The new, upgraded, version of humans is on their way. Have you heard of 'the 100th monkey effect'? - In 20 years these kids will take over. The way they think, relate to each other, lack of aggression, anxiety, they have no need to create chaos, etc., they have a deep understanding of emotional dynamics – all of it makes them able to see the big picture and find the solutions that we can’t see right now. But of course for this to happen, we need to rise to the occasion and provide the safe landing for these angels to embody.  We are here to help them grow and mature into who they already are.

The best part is: we actually already have the critical mass of them :)  But the more the merrier! The war is over.

And how do I know that? Well, prophecies are nice and old, but I got it from a more reliable source – newborns. Toddlers. Anyone who looked into their eyes lately, with the intent to get it, can receive this message. Just look at them! They would not be coming here if it’s all over! They did not come here to die. They came to this planet to enjoy being alive, - to clean up this mess and have fun. This new generation is amazing – brilliant and strong, equipped in a way we could only dream of! All we need to do is to give them a proper welcome!

I’ve been doing this work for nearly 30 years on all 5 continents, and what I see leaves me deeply satisfied. WE  DID  IT!!!  The End of the World is canceled!!!

Belly Bandit Review on Babble

There is a great Belly Bandit review on Babble's blog: "Baby's First Year". The blogger is a mom who breezed into her pre-pregnancy clothes right after her first pregnancy. However after her second pregnancy she didn't find it so easy to get back in shape and she tried the Belly Bandit to expedite things. She posts that after three weeks of wearing it, she was back in her pre-pregnancy jeans and her waistline was smaller.   

We like this Babble review because babble's bloggers are not compensated for their posts and are free to give their honest opinions about the products they are given to try.
