Diana Tulumba shares valuable insight from when she prepared for
the natural birth of her son. Her concerns, fears, challenges,
research and mindset, that all played a part throughout each stage
of her pregnancy and beyond, as she navigates motherhood in this
new chapter of life.
I am a Long Island girl living in Austin Texas with my husband
Pete and our sons Jack and Charlie (the furry one). My life
consists of writing, coaching, mom and wife-ing. My intention daily
is to stay present and open to life and my inner guidance. I don't
know where I will be five years from now, but I know it'll be
better than I can think of today. There is a lot of useless anxiety
pervading us women and so I always end my bio with my
favorite quote from A Course in Miracles... “There
is a way of living in the world that is not here, although it seems
to be. You do not change appearance, though you smile more
frequently. Your forehead is serene; your eyes are quiet.”

I would read from MamaNatural’s Book to see what was going on with
my baby and what I could do or expect. It was so helpful because it
allowed me to just focus in on certain things without being
overwhelmed by the plethora of information out there. I trusted I
would get to everything I needed to know in the right timing so I
didn’t stress that I didn’t know everything off the bat.
mentioned this book Mystical Motherhood which grew my relationship
and love for my son before he ever arrived.
morning I listened to Gabby Bernstein’s birthing affirmations
Leaf Tea. Here is an article with more info.
Here is an article from Evidence Based Birth (they also have a
podcast) which explains the dates and cites the studies.
Shefali’s book really helped me to love the season I’m in with my
baby and not try so hard to be the “old” me but embrace it all for
the beauty of the new now. Life is all change anyway right?
Sit on an
exercise ball to get the baby in the right position. I don’t know
if it worked but my baby was in the right position for birth and I
sat on it often. Here’s an article.
