Hi everyone :) I am due to have my first child this September! While extremely excited, I am also very nervous! I was wondering what you would to special for labor and delivery, as well as once the newborn is here? I am open to any suggestions, advice, etc. This is in regards to witchcraft workings , as well as any other advice you may have.

 

I have been having serious lack of energy and brain fog lately. So far I plan on working on a protection/safe delivery amulet which I will wear when I go to the hospital. I am also very big in to herbalism/incense/aromatherapy etc, so will be directly energy into that as well.

 

Thank you for reading.

No advice but I just wanted to say congratulations.  Hoping everything goes well.

^This. I'd visualize the birth you want to have, too--every day if possible, right down to the last detail. There's a great book called Birthing from Within by Pam England &also Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year by Susun Weed. Magically, you could paint a bindrune in henna on yourself for an easy birth. After the birth, you can bury the placenta under a tree or encapsulate it (if you're at a u.s. hospital they'll throw it away, but if you have a doula she'll do it for you right away if she offers that). I can't recommend getting a doula highly enough if you're birthing at a hospital. (Not that they aren't helpful at birth centers or home, but having someone to advocate is great if you're scared). The Birthing From Within book is really helpful to not be scared anymore. Feel free to PM me if you need to talk.

After:
Tie a red string loosely around baby's wrist for protection. Or on the cradle/crib/cosleeper.

many congratulations! :)

Congratulations Kalinia! The brain fog and lack of energy are of course perfectly normal. Do the simple and non draining things that you can, but please try not to stress to much! By the way, if all of the sudden the brain fog lifts and you feel a surge of energy, it could be a sign that your baby has decided to make a surprise early appearance! Best wishes to you and you little one!

I second Susun Weed's books.  Any of them.  I'm not a groupy,,,  er,,, follower... but she knows her shit and she's a green witch so that's the perspective she offers advice and instruction from.

 

Of course you're tired and drawn into yourself.  You're pregnant.  If you need to use your mojo there is near unlimited strength in Motherhood.  Protection of our Children.  Etc,

 

Sometimes, I wonder if that strength that's found is truly from within ourselves or if we reach through ourselves into something bigger to access that.  When I've worked magic to protect my child - it's different.

Huh. I think your post just hit me over the head with something. That was neat.

Well incase you haven't had your baby yet, I would say get a massage oil for whoever is with you to rub your lower back with; and if you have made a birth plan don't worry too much about sticking to it - just go with the flow.
I've had 3 babies (rather a long time ago now) but only with the last one did I try delivering in a squatting position and it was much, much better with gravity helping!
Good luck :D

Congratulations!
I don't have much to add because I have not yet experienced pregnancy/giving birth.

Congrats! When my wife had our son it was the most beautiful thing I ever experienced. I saw how strong and powerful a woman can be! She brought the most important thing in our lives into this world! Our son. I learned as a man that a woman's strength  and power is unmatchable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :cool_witch:

I had a wonderful experience! My husband and I did a protection/safe labor and delivery spell and created a talisman that I kept with me the entire time. I labored for about 9 hours only, and my daughter was born in 10 minutes once I started pushing. She was born at 11:11 , on Sept 11th, in room 11 !

Congratulations on your little girl :smile:

 

Wow. 11:11. Something special happening there!

 

In some cultures a mother and child are kept indoors, away from too many visitors, for the first few months. This is to avoid the evil eye being cast by an envious person. I believe it also gives the mother and child time to recover and build immunity after the birth. I guess the modern equivalent would be keeping visitors to close friends and family only,  keeping baby photos off facebook :tongue:

Thank you! I am definitely keeping her in for a few months, with only close family/friends visiting sparingly :)
