Episode 83: When Birth Does Not Go as Planned
3 days ago
You spend 9 months dreaming about the day you get to meet your baby, you meticulously design your birth, you draft up the perfect birth plan, you over prepare, then you go into labor and nothing goes like it is supposed to. When things do not go as planned, it can be a huge disappointment. There are so many factors that impact your labor and birth, and when the big birth day comes it is possible that some of those things are out of our control and can send your birth experience in a different direction than you planned. You often hear, ‘all that matters is that you have a healthy baby’. That is important, but how you feel about your birth experience is also important, and it also matters. Everyone copes with emotions differently and this episode has some tips and strategies you can apply in the event your birth does not go as planned, and some ways to be more prepared for those unplanned outcomes.

Balanced, educational and fun
I love Vanessa's focus on both evidence based medicine and practical real-world-mom tips. I like knowing what to discuss with my doctor and husband. She's the friend we all need, who's helpful but not pushy! Thank you!
