Posted @withregram • @mmhalliance This #InternationalFathersMentalHealthDay, we’re highlighting the importance of recognising and supporting new and soon-to-be dads’ mental wellbeing.

Being able to identify early signs of mental ill health like difficulty focusing, low mood, irritability, and disinterest in daily activities is crucial. These signs might be subtle at first, but acknowledging them and providing a safe space to talk can make a big difference.

Prioritising self-care is essential for any new parent. It doesn’t have to be extravagant — simple activities like exercise, hobbies, or connecting with friends and family can greatly improve wellbeing. Joining local groups, clubs, or teams can also provide much-needed social interaction and support.

If you know a new dad who might be struggling, please encourage them to reach out to their GP or a peer support service. More groups are popping up for dads across the UK, so see what’s available near you. Let them know that focusing on their mental wellbeing isn’t selfish. If anything, it will help them be the best dad they can be.

Help us ensure every dad feels supported and valued this #InternationalFathersMentalHealthDay!

Visit new @MMHAlliance member organisation, @dadpaduk, for more information and resources for new and soon-to-be dads.

Posted @withregram • @lindseymeehleis ❤️The Breast Crawl ❤️

No matter how many times you see it… it is still one of the most miraculous things to witness on this planet ❤️🥰

Please know that in a normal physiological birth this is part of a baby’s reflex. Note a couple amazing things:

This baby is free to move as intuitively needed. There is no hat, her vernix is fresh on her body. There are towels but only because they had just gotten out of the tub.

The cord is still attached. 🪢 each step reflex the baby makes she gently presses on mama’s belly to help her placenta release. Tell me that isn’t part of the perfect design of this. ⭐️

Mom’s nipples are making colostrum which smells like amniotic fluid. A familiar smell for baby to seek and find. ❤️

There is also a couple other things the help in this process… the darkening of mom’s nipples, the pheromone smell of moms body odor, maybe even possible the línea negra on mom’s belly. It’s all part of this incredible system.

I always encourage parents to be intuitive, you can see how dad reaches out his arm so she didn’t fall. There is no right or wrong way to do this. ❤️

All you need is the patience and trust to allow this to all unfold ❤️

Great video from @bambinoclubantenatal demonstrating how to use a TENS machine! Check out our Linktree for our latest post all about TENs machines including the evidence!

Posted @withregram • @bambinoclubantenatal Save this video for an easy guide on how to apply your TENS machine. TENS (transelectronic nervous system) machines can be a great ease of aches and pains in labour, particularly in early labour! You can even apply the machine at home with your birth partner. There are no side effects to your baby, they will be completely none the wiser to you using your TENS!

Did you know that Bambino Club offer discount on Baby Care TENS products to all our attendees?

🌟 NEW Exploring Pain Relief in Labor: Is a TENS Machine Right for You? 🌟

🤰 Labour is a powerful experience, and managing discomfort is a key concern for many. For those looking for non-medicinal options, TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) offers a promising solution!

💡 What’s a TENS Machine? It’s a small device that sends mild electrical impulses to the skin to block pain signals and boost endorphin levels - your body’s natural painkillers.

📊 Research shows mixed results, but many women report a significant reduction in pain and appreciate the control they maintain over their pain management.

🚫 Remember, TENS is not for everyone:
Don’t use in water or with heat
Please do not use TENS if you have a cardiac pacemaker

🔍 Want more control and less pain during labour? Consider discussing TENS with your midwife as part of your birth plan. It’s easy to use, and many find it an effective complement to other pain management strategies!

🔗 Check out the link in our story or Linktree in our bio for more on how TENS works and where you can get one. Embrace your labor with confidence and empowerment!
