It’s another birth story episode today and this one is a completely unmedicated hospital birth in a military hospital.
Emilie is a registered nurse and military spouse currently living in Guam. She and her husband Chris have been married for 5 years and have two precious babies, Liam who is 2 and baby Adeleine whose birth story we are going to hear today. She is taking a break from full time nursing to stay home with her kids and soak up the sunny Pacific. She and her family enjoy hiking, traveling (before the pandemic), and splashing at the beach.
In this episode Emilie shares how different her two births have been, her experience with postpartum preeclampsia, and the excellent care she received in a military hospital.
In this Episode, You’ll Learn About:
- What makes prenatal care and giving birth in a military system unique
- How Emilie’s husband served as her “dude-la” when she couldn’t have a doula present due to Covid
- How Emilie’s background as a nurse informed her pregnancy and birth
- Why you can’t predict how a birth is going to go
- What her experience of postpartum preeclampsia was like and how it was treated
- Why it’s important to listen to your body and advocate for the care you need
