This episode is not to be missed if you are planning on having a natural, vaginal birth or undisturbed birth!!
We talked about:
- What an instinctive birth is & the benefits to mother and baby
- How instinctive birth supports a woman to birth vaginally
- The hormones that support our natural birthing process
- How many health care professionals see women’s bodies as pathological (meaning they have a problem that needs fixing) rather than seeing pregnancy and birth as a natural and normal part of a human’s journey.
- The differences between a VBAC labour and a non-VBAC from a care provider/support perspective
And much much more!
