Vernix Caseosa. Did you know that this incredible substance serves so many purposes?! ???? It is a white, creamy biofilm that appears in the last trimester produced in part by fetal sebaceous glands. It is unique to humans! ???? It acts as protection for the baby’s skin. It’s akin to Shea butter in texture. (Could you imagine soaking in water for 9 months? This stuff creates a barrier between the water and the skin. Genius!) ???? It acts as an insulator, keeping in warmth. ???? When left on the skin to be absorbed, helps the skin transition to a land environment by providing moisture and reducing the rate of skin dehydration. ????Often seen in babies born before 40 weeks but that is just the average, some babies have little to none before 40 weeks and some babies are frosted at 42 weeks. ???? It has its own microbiome! It contains oils and antibiotic peptides. An anti-microbial barrier of sorts! Plus, it is seeded by beneficial bacteria from the birth canal. ???? The vernix within amniotic fluid when swallowed by the fetus has potential effects on the developing gut! _ I’m not even kidding. I had to stop adding brilliant facts about vernix because Instagram said no more room. There are loads more magical facts all about vernix! I’ll add the link to an amazing NCBI article that surmises them all in the link in my profile! Happy reading! _ ????: this image stopped me in my tracks! That little face, vernix covered, hugging mama!! Incredible capture @h2o_sonya!!! ????????????????Post words by @laughing.moon. ✨ #birthwithoutfear #optionssupportrespect

Birthday frosting! ???? “The amazing Vernix Caseosa offers so many benefits to baby while in the womb, during birth and even after delivery! _ It is moisturizer- this layer of lipid, proteins and amino acids (and lots of other good stuff) shields the baby’s skin from the effects of the amniotic fluid. Without vernix baby would be delivered looking like a prune! _ It protects the skin from temperature changes, meconium exposure, bacteria, & the acidic amniotic fluid. _ Prevents loss of electrolytes & fluids, and it’s protective layer helps skin cells to grow and reproduce underneath. _ It’s a lubricant, that helps baby slide though the birth canal during delivery. _ The smell of vernix helps with mom and baby bonding and breastfeeding. ???? So, don’t wash it off! Rub it in!” @coastal_life_photos @roundhousemidwives @bcmidwives _ #birth #baby #homebirth #midwife #vernix #oxytocin #birthwithoutfear #thisisbirth

Options. Support. Respect. One birth at a time. Keep on keeping on friends! _ @jesjacksonbirthphotographer: “Just casually letting you all know… I was allowed in to the OR this month to photograph another C- Section birth!!! Eep. It was a loooooong 9 months of hard work, determination, letter writing, fighting, a never giving up attitude for Mum, Her OB and myself to get in there but we did it, together as a team we did it!! It is always a huge honour to be allowed into such a sacred space, The OR included. _ C-Section is birth and deserves to be documented too by a professional. _ Huge thank you to the amazing OB, Midwife and Theatre staff who allowed this to happen for this amazing mama. Old wounds were healed here, and it was amazing to be apart of! _ Also if you signed my petition, You played a part in making this happen too!!!! So THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.” ???? _ #birth #birthphotography #birthphotographer #baby #newborn #babygirl #csection #hospitalbirth #birthwithoutfear #cesareanbirth #love #joy #happy #childbirth #childbirthrights #optionssupportrespect

    I’d love Another baby but will stop at the two I have, I just feel like I missed out on all the precious moments when they were newborns due to stupid health/ medical issues.

  • Even covered in all their gunk, these pics make me smile. I wish I had gotten pics of my bubs so soon after, even during, birth. My first was 2 hours old and my second……we had a wind on film camera. The film sometime didn’t wind on, so I totally lost the first 4 months of my second bubs pics. Devastating

  • Nope, my birth experience was traumatic and terrible. Only when I watch videos of my boy as a bub (not photos like these) do I wish I could go back there.
