  1. As a doula and a mother with an often-constipated five-year-old, I frequently bring my birthing skills in, referring to Ina May Gaskin’s “sphincter law,” in which you open one sphincter by opening another (i.e. mouth-cervix). I often say, “Just relax your mouth, think open, it will come,” much like I do at a birth. Works like a charm!


  2. That’s a new one for me…I’ll have to try it out!
