Support for Pregnancy | Mother Rising

Hello and welcome! Thank you for clicking over to learn more about how Mother Rising can help you have a healthy pregnancy.

My name is Lindsey and I am the creator and founder of Mother Rising, a holistic pregnancy blog.

Locally, I teach childbirth classes, am a doula and I even encapsulate placentas (it’s secretly quite popular!). I have three kids and live with them in North Florida.

I have quite the varied birth experiences – I gave birth at a birth center, then at home and for my third birth I was transferred to a hospital! By the grace of God they were all unmedicated.

Mother Rising’s Mission

I hope that through Mother Rising you will have a healthy pregnancy, a natural birth and a happy postpartum. 

Don’t worry though, even if your experiences don’t match your expectations (does life ever really do that??), I teach compassionately and with wisdom so that you’ll rock whatever comes your way.

About My Pregnancies

During my first pregnancy I felt ridiculously excited, nervous and hungry for information. I really wanted to get this whole “pregnancy and childbirth thing” right.

Pregnancy was not what I thought it would be. I honestly thought it would be more romantic! Morning sickness was my first wake up call that I was in for the ride of my life.

I don’t have it all figured out and honestly, I never will. Sometimes mothering is scary, and an emotional roller-coaster.

Sometimes it’s euphoric, and fun!

And many times it’s a lot of mundane work.

I’ve been pregnant six times and birthed three babies. After personally struggling with infertility, finding my voice during pregnancy, giving birth and adjusting through an intense postpartum…

I’m on a mission to help other mamas have a more informative, empowering and compassionate transformation.

Hi Lindsey!

I am writing for my sister (Heather Williams), due June 29th, first birth. We have heard you are AMAZING! And hope you would be interested in helping support her during this time! I went through one birthing myself, but wished I had someone like you at the time, looking back. Can you let me know if you are available and interested? We can get payment to you asap. Best regards, Hilarie Geraldi

I was wondering what your thoughts were on eating during labor? My midwife said if I wanted a light and healthy snack I was allowed to but the hospitals don't even want you to drink water. They only give you ice chips when I was allowed juice or water the whole time.

Here's what I think: https://www.motherrisingbirth.com/2015/12/snacksforlabor.html (Basically, in an unmedicated labor the research doesn't backup your hospital's policies.)
