We have another birth story on today's episode of the podcast, and I'm so excited to share this one with you.
Lynn Turcotte-Schuh was a marine mammal trainer before she gave birth to her daughter, which inspired her to become a Certified Childbirth Educator, Toddler Trainer, and coach of other moms through her practice Happy Mama Wellness.
Lynn originally wanted to have a home birth, but after discussing it with her wife, they decided that giving birth in the hospital while creating a relaxing, supportive, home-birth-like environment was right for them. Lynn had a 53-hour labor, during which she, her wife, and her midwife were able to advocate for Lynn's ideal birth.
Lynn and I chat about her birth story on this episode, including why she didn't want to be hooked up to any machines or use any medication during her birth. We also talk about how she and her wife educated and prepared themselves for the birth, what she might have done differently, and why she now loves helping other moms create a holistic pregnancy and birth experience.
