Episode Info:

I think it's really important for women to share their birth stories with one another. It gives us not only a chance to learn from other people's experiences, but the opportunity to connect over a life-changing, sometimes scary event. 

I've been looking back on the past year of the podcast, and I think the birth stories have been one of the most wonderful aspects of the show. December is a big month in my family - you'll hear why in this episode! - so I wanted to celebrate the end of 2019 by sharing my birth stories again. 

I talk about both of my births in this episode, as well as some of the regrets and trauma I have around them. I will also share some of the decisions I made about my care and why, and talk about how my births helped me become a better physician. 

In this Episode, You’ll Learn About:

  • Why I think it's important for women to share their birth stories with each other
  • What my first pregnancy was like and how I dealt with my anxiety
  • What my husband and I did when I started going into labor 8 weeks early
  • How my first C-section experience went (and why I was traumatized afterward)
  • Why I decided to schedule my C-section for my second baby
  • Some of the emotions that I had after my second birth
  • How my experiences have informed my practice as an OBGYN and birth coach
