Lola worked during most of her pregnancy and walked 6 km a day. She was quite scared about going into labor, so she chose a doctor who really made her feel confident about herself. The doctor had a reputation of standing back during most of the delivery and letting things follow their natural course, and would step in as needed. Another important factor that made things easier was that the hospital was only a 3 minute walk away from their apartment.

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
