We have another special birth story episode this week, but this time you're getting three birth stories in one!
Jennifer is an international board certified lactation consultant, wife and mom of three. She had all three of her babies at the same hospital and had a C-section with each of them - but as you'll hear, her birth experiences were different every single time.
Jennifer and I talk about all three of her births so you can understand how her hospital experiences and self-advocacy developed over time. We discuss pre-eclampsia, why she really wanted a VBAC with her second and third babies, and how her prenatal care & birth wishes were shaped by her religion. Jennifer also highlights why her childbirth education was so important and why one great nurse played a key role in giving her the birth experience she really wanted.
We also touch on how hospitals and providers can change their practices to become more baby-friendly and why it's never too late to change providers if yours isn't supporting your wishes.
