Best resource and preparation for ALL kinds of birth!
I am currently pregnant with my second baby. I listened to this podcast throughout my first pregnancy while planning a minimal intervention hospital birth and this podcast gave me and my husband so much knowledge of how to go about that and how other women advocated for themselves. Well, when my birth plan went completely opposite of what I hoped, this podcast still helped me! There were so many stories of adoptive birth, surrogacy, birth with LGBTQ parents, birth with single mothers, birth with loss( don’t worry, she prepares you before the episode if you want to skip it), an accidental car birth!, home birth, birth center, hospital birth, with interventions, with epidurals, and stories of c-sections both planned and unplanned! And stories of vaginal birth after cesarean, that gave me so much hope for future births. Even though my birth ended in an emergency c-section, I still felt very prepared for what was happening to me.I absolutely adore how each woman tells her story(ies) with so much truth and empowerment. It has helped me plan even more for the birth of my second baby, and encouraged me seek out better care for me and my baby. I recommend this podcast to all new ana expectant moms!!! Thank you, Bryn for creating this space.
