(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:
- How to find the right person to support you in birth (hint: that may mean crossing your spouse off the list).
- Why counting on your labor & delivery nurse as “birth support” usually isn’t enough.
- 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?’
