Exceptional podcast!

This podcast is brilliant! A wonderful resource for parents considering birth outside of the hospital or anyone who just wants to know more about home birth. After listening to other birth related podcasts, I found DIAH and was instantly hooked. I’ve listened to every episode more than once. This podcast and all the stories shared on this platform gave me the confidence to give birth where I felt most comfortable, AT HOME. Sarah and Matthew are open, honest, funny, and easy to listen to. Check out their other podcasts as well, if you haven’t already. They are fantastic at what they do! Keep educating and inspiring others! Thank you!

Thank you Sarah & Matthew

Love this Podcast! This was the first resource I came across when planning for my second baby’s birth. The information, education, and birth stories are so inspiring! The content is helpful no matter where you plan to give birth. It also led me to my other favorite birth resources which played a huge part in my birth and birthing choices (Hypnobabies, Gentle Birth Gentle Mothering, and Evidence Based Birth).Although I wanted to have a Home Birth, we planned a free standing birth center birth due to spouses and insurance preference. As it turned out, I did get my Home Birth (before the Midwives arrived!) due to a much faster labor than my first. Home birth is just the best! Thank you Sarah & Matthew for providing a great resource, normalizing home birth, and entertaining us with your Podcast!

Thank you for NORMALIZING home birth.

For me, home birth is normal. But most people think that it's dangerous and scary. Most people also want to feel good about their birth experience. I wish for people to discover how safe, satisfying and healing birth can be when you are supported in the comfort of your home. Thank you for the work you do!

Favorite pregnancy/birth podcast!

I am not a momma quite yet but we will be trying to conceive soon and this podcast has been my favorite to listen to lately! Home birth has always been a topic that I LOVE to explore. I’ve spent so much time reading birth stories and watching birth videos and this podcast was exactly what I was looking for! It’s inspiring, informative, and open to all pregnancy journeys and experiences! I am so happy I found the DIAH podcast and I look forward to listening to this podcast with my husband, as well as when I am entering the pregnancy experience! Grateful for you both!!

Sarah and Matthew speak so much love and truth!

I have been listening to your podcast for nearly 2 years and have listened to every episode. I love how passionate you all about life, each other and especially home birth, but specifically about inspiring families to make the informed choices that best suit their families. My partner and I are hoping to conceive our first bio babe this fall and listening to your podcast has helped to influence our dedication to a free birth at home. My partner loves the podcast too and we both think you guys are awesome and hilarious! Thanks for the magic!

Love the “impossible stories”

I’m new to this show and have one baby already who I have given birth at a hospital to. I was aiming to have a birth center birth, but was told I was too “high risk.” Come this pregnancy, I have the same complications, but planning a home birth. This podcast gives me hope, and helping build trust in my body’s ablility! I love hearing the other “impossible” stories! Keep up the good work!!

Exactly what I needed

I am fairly new to the show and have gone WAYYYYY back to the beginning to start. I'm finding the episodes SO relevant and helpful! It's funny because earlier this week I posted in an online mommy group that we were planning our home birth for our 4th baby. I've had one "give me all the drugs" birth, two natural hospital births, and if/when we are blessed to get pregnant again are DIAH. Some specific pointsSo after posting in the mommy group it actually spiraled into a secondary thread with hundreds of comments people calling me "selfish, negligent, stupid, etc". I was listening to your post about what NOT to say to a home birth mom and omg...it was like you read the thread 😂I also listened to the interview with your midwife and wow, so relatable. My first natural hospital birth was fabulous. It really was as close to a home birth as I feel like you can get. My most recent son though was fast and furious. I actually delivered him in triage but it was a mess. They were so adamant on monitors, and keeping me on the bed, etc. They even questioned if I was actually in labor (my water already broke), and when I went from 7-10 in two contractions they tried to convince me that he wasn't there even though I was feeling the pressure of my body pushing him out... They gave me the most uncomfortable check of my life! Word for word how your midwife spoke on hospital births. Especially after having my wonderful experience i was like wow, I want THAT birth back! So we decided home is the way to go. Anyways I had to share since those episodes REALLY spoke to me. I can't wait to catch up with you guys and hear about it all :)

TRUST YOUR BODY!!!

And release control!!! Hi Sarah and Matthew! I am so in love with this most recent episode with Laura Jean. I got teary-eyed a couple of times. I’m definitely in the camp of those for whom a birth experience led me to more body-listening, body-trusting, and body-respecting - especially with regard to food and sexuality. I’m so excited about this path and where my body will lead me, and listening helped me realize that I’ve already done a lot of healing. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone interested in birth, although there’s something here for everyone!
