134| Natural Hospital Births in Puerto Rico & Guam - Angelica Malone
< 1 day ago
Anjelica gave birth to her first daughter while living abroad on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. Though she originally wanted to deliver with a midwife, she had to make adjustments based on her location’s cultural norms and her Spanish language barrier. Anjelica’s story takes some crazy turns that involve driving two-hours to the hospital, her husband paying for a private labor room while she was in labor, and her doula almost delivering their baby. As she shares what birth is like for many women on the island we get an idea of what it takes for some women outside the continental U.S. to achieve a low-intervention vaginal birth. Anjelica gave birth to her second daughter on another lush island, Guam. This time around she was able to have a midwife provider like she’d hoped for the first time, but experienced other hurdles that came along with being a military spouse and mother of a busy toddler. Anjelica’s story quickly gets interesting as she realizes she’s in labor while her husband is in the middle of running a half-marathon.

Where do I even begin? I am 20 years old and no where near close to having children..BUT I FREAKING LOVE this podcast! People my age think I am such a weirdo or gross because I listen to Birth Stories, but I feel empowered because of how knowledgeable I am about birth at a relatively "young" age from listening to this podcast! My friends and I talk about everything under the sun and many of them have older siblings that have babies or are pregnant. We always talk about how our lives will be with children and we even sometimes talk about birth. I always feel so knowledgable talking about this because I have listened to almost all of these episodes. I also LOVE to show them pictures on The Birth Hour's Instagram and how their faces light up because they also agree how beautiful they are (although some girls think its gross, but I assure them that its what women were made to do!). I seriously feel like we Bryn and I are friends or something because I have listened so much and she is the sweetest! I am so interested in birth now and I think it is soo beautiful and so normal. In fact, anyone that I know is pregnant, I always recommend listening to this podcast because it is so amazing! And I keep asking them if they listened so I make sure that they do haha! Anyways, I just wanted to thank this podcast for allowing me to be so knowledgable about my future births so many years in advanced. I now know what kind of birth I want and why. Hopefully, when I have babies, I will be able to share my birth stories with Bryn and be featured on this podcast! A must-listen to show!
