(with Tina Cassidy, Author of “Birth: The Surprising History of How We Are Born”) How have communities of women been using birth support since the dawn of time? Does this type of birth support trigger a chemical response in your brain (important hormones) helping you through labor & birth? Do studies prove the benefits of birth support during labor & birth?

Things have changed a lot since the early 1900′s. Listen & learn where we’ve come from…

You’ll Also Learn:

  1. How to find the right person to support you in birth (hint: that may mean crossing your spouse off the list).
  2. Why counting on your labor & delivery nurse as “birth support” usually isn’t enough.
  3. The questions you should ask, and the info you should convey to your birth support before you go into labor. For example, ‘If I’ve communicated that I don’t want an epidural & in the 12th hour I am tired & ask for one…how will you handle it?’
