In spite of being a Large Animal Veterinarian (Board Certified in Animal ObGyn) and a Reproductive Physiologist studying human fertility, Dr. Joanna Ellington was surprised when the flu threw off her ovulation cycle and an unplanned pregnancy occurred. Using excellent classic references like Active Birth and Spiritual Midwifery, Joanna used perineal massage to prepare for childbirth, and was maybe a little too active with a 2 mile hike that turned into 5 miles the day before her membranes began leaking. An induction resulted in a normal birth where Joanna used her knowledge of birth and lactation in animals to enjoy the process as much as possible, even telling her midwife “That was kind of fun!” Joanna's second son was born within 10 minutes after she arrived at the hospital. In the chaos and discomfort of having two male doctors she had never met working on her son and her private parts, Joanna coped by switching into “medical professional mode" and talking to them about her research. But, she lost her focus on her baby and the moment. Sadly, she forgot to invite her waiting son and mother in to see the birth, as she had planned. This was a valuable lesson of not “taking care of others” or outwardly focusing during birth, but staying centered and baby focused.

In this rebroadcast, Megan shares that after an especially tough pregnancy, she was more than ready to welcome her third daughter into the world. Being that this was her third child, she went into this sure of two things: this child will be born on or before her due date (like her older sisters) and this mama definitely wanted an epidural. It wasn't until she found herself 4 days past her due date without a sign of labor that she started to suspect that this birth might not go as planned. Little did she know that was only the beginning. Links: Go to shopify.com/birthhour for a FREE fourteen-day trial and get full access to Shopify’s entire suite of features.

In this rebroadcast, Diana shares the story of her first baby who was an unexpectedly large, 12 lbs, 3 oz. He was born via c-section after a very long labor. It was a deeply traumatic experience for her, but when she became pregnant again 2 years later she knew she'd have this second baby at home. Diana had a completely different labor and birth experience the second time - a beautiful, fast home birth that was also incredibly healing for her. She wants anyone who's had a traumatic birth or a c-section to know it's completely possible to not only heal from it, but to have a better, empowering subsequent birth.

The first story of her son's birth was drastically different from her daughter's birth. Her son was born at a birth center after being in labor for over 26 hours (and pushing for two hours). Her daughter was born in the backseat of her car, after 15 hours of mild contractions and 5 hours of more intense contractions. She appreciates both of her experiences and is grateful to her husband, her main birthing partner in both births. She is also grateful for the Hypnobabies training that she and her husband completed in preparation for childbirth.  Links: Get Motif's Luna breast pump covered through insurance at motifmedical.com/birthhour.

In this rebroadcast, Lindsey shares that long before even trying to conceive, Lindsey knew she wanted an intervention-free birth. Despite her intentions, research, planning, and extensive preparation, Lindsey and her husband learned their first parenting lesson (you are no longer in control!) at seemingly every turn, from pregnancy through delivery and postpartum.  An induction lead to a 28 hour labor which ultimately ended in a cesarean section. Lindsey spent much of the fourth trimester trying to understand her birth experience and heal physically and emotionally.

Joelle believes in astrology and tarot, but Joelle does not believe in the power of breastmilk. 🤡

Who would imagine that induction, plus lack of freedom of movement, plus epidural would result in a surgery? Everybody I like the podcast but it bothers me that because she is trying to be supportive she doesn’t discuss the problems in the birth stories. There are lessons to be learn here about how the system is design in a awful way that leads to so many unecessary interventions and surgeries.

This doctor can not see how she opted in for every procedure available?! You touch the physiology of birth in every single possible way. Result a 33 weeker and complementation. And then you repeat a csection? Have you heard of microbiome? I will definitely read your content.

She starts the episode saying she thinks people over research. So she doesn't inform herself at all. Chooses an elective surgery. Has a miscarriage and placenta previa and only then starts to think about how her uninformed decision had consequences. Just don't commit this mistake. Inform yourselves! There's no such thing as over informed.

this similar to my story (traumatic csection but successful vbac). just had my baby July 22! I actually changed my health provider at 36 weeks because she became a bait n switch. I used a midwife practice the last month of my pregnancy. congrats momma

the last half hour was so uncomfortable to listen to, it was like she was having her own one sided therapy session
