I'm excited to share another lovely birth story episode with you this week! This time we're joined by Brooke, a clinical social worker and doula who lives in Hawai'i with her husband and two sons. She had such a good experience during her first pregnancy and birth that she decided to become a doula and a perinatal mental health counselor so she can help other women have wonderful experiences as well.
We talked about how her pregnancy felt, why she asked her OB for a referral to a pelvic floor physical therapist and why that was such a good decision for her care. Brooke also shares how she prepared herself mentally, physically and spiritually for her birth, especially during such a strange and stressful time to be pregnant.
Brooke and I also discuss her birth wishes and how she shared these with her medical provider, including her flexible mindset about the pregnancy and how she responded to changes in what she needed from moment to moment.
