This podcast is for a specific group of people, although anyone is invited to listen and share! This podcast is for women planning a home birth for the first time! To be clear; that is not someone that is planning their first birth, but rather for women that have experienced one or more medicalized births and are now dreaming of or planning a home birth.
This is possibly my favorite group of people to serve, educate and support because they are usually so open and ready for change. I was one of these women almost 14 years ago. After a hospital birth with my first, I jumped in with my 2nd to planning a home birth and so I am well acquainted with many of the topics and issues that seem to come up for most people.
I hope this podcast helps bring awareness to some things to consider, and mostly I hope it helps encourage those that are in this boat! So many of the issues and feelings are normal as we begin to claim our own power. Processing our last birth, processing our fears and patterns are just an expected part of taking the home birth journey. And of course there are just obvious differences between midwifery care and mainstream medical care, so come along on this podcast journey with me!
