Pregnancy-Related Accounts to Follow on Instagram

The days and weeks leading to the delivery can be such a long wait. Because waiting could take its toll on our mind and body, we can turn it instead to a productive learning and exploring phase! To be honest, when I learned that I was pregnant, I’ve never really thought about exploring birthing options. Now that I’m almost about to pop, knowing what to expect helps ease my anxiety. It’s a good thing that social media platforms like Instagram is no longer just a place for posting aesthetic photos! It has already established communities of individuals who selflessly share their journeys to educate moms to be like me. So today, let us share with you pregnancy-related Instagram accounts you can also learn from!

@birthwithoutfear

True to its encouraging Instagram handle, Birth Without Fear is a collection of mothers’ real birth stories, with forceful reiterations that mothers have birth options. January Harshe’s routing message is, “I do not care what kind of birth you have… a home birth, scheduled cesarean, epidural hospital birth, or if you birth alone in the woods next to a baby deer. I care that you have options, that you are supported in your choices, and that you are respected.”

@vbacfacts

I first heard about VBAC just a few weeks ago, when a friend who’s giving birth to her second child mentioned it to me. This reader-friendly account is packed with information on Vaginal Birth After Cesarean or VBAC, allowing the readers to know as much about this procedure, its risks and realities included.

If you’re looking for tips across all birthing options, this should be one of your go-to pages! With the use of relatable reels, mommy and nurse Liesel Teen shares useful information such as myths, epidurals, dilation, and postpartum newborn care, among others. Her posts are very endearing, I personally didn’t notice time passing while watching!

@spinningbabies

This account feels like a fusion of books on meditation, inspiration, and birthing reference, while doing its job as a community page too! I love how it enlightens mothers on the relationship between her body and her child’s, and the wealth of tips and techniques mothers can follow to help improve the position of their child in the womb.
