The last days of pregnancy — sometimes stretching to agonizing weeks — are a distinct place, time, event, stage. It is a time of in between. Neither here nor there. Your old self and your new self, balanced on the edge of a pregnancy. One foot in your old world, one foot in a new world. Shouldn’t there be a word for this state of being, describing the time and place where mothers linger, waiting to be called forward?
true and lovely description of the last days of pregnancy

Bengkung belly binding. Make with cut muslin (7-8 inches wide by 15 yards long), and do not sew (seams will make it uncomfortable and possibly less effective). Wear beginning 3-4 days postpartum for 6+ hours/day, for at least 6 weeks for diastasis healing. For a less conspicuous wrap for going out of the house, switch to a tummy team wrap: http://www.thetummyteam.com/on-line-education/programs/?ap_id=LeavesForMedicine

40 ways to naturally induce labor! I will be skipping the castor oil!
40 ways to help induce labor naturally. Some are hilarious, some may help move things along if you are already close.... good to have on hand for the future. Wish I could share this with my friends and patients for future babies! Would probably help reduce the c-sections!
Red raspberry leaf tea- makes for an efficient uterus and quicker, easier labor. Evening Primrose- a strong prostaglandin (only to be taken after 36 weeks) that softens your cervix. Long walks- make you more limber for labor, if anything. Castor oil- Don't do it. Let's just say... you'll be pushing more than a baby out at your dr.'s face.

rest for new mother and baby. Gloria Lemay is wise and wonderful :)

LYING-IN or CONFINEMENT. The postpartum traditions of 30-45 days OF almost complete rest. The mother's ONLY task is to cuddle baby, sleep, feed baby, (AND eat her own meals brought fully-prepared to her in bed), sleep, drink, sleep, feed baby. And of course change baby's diapers. After 24-48 hours of complete bed-rest, she can start doing some small tiny activities. One extra per day. By 40 weeks she can have a balanced half-time schedule of work and rest.
