BBL 067: Taking Prenatal Care Into My Own Hands

I really enjoyed handling routine “prenatal care” during my pregnancy with Sadie. In today's episode I talk about what I did to care for myself and Sadie, why I still appreciated my midwife, and how directing my own care helped me bond with Sadie.

Topics I Cover in This Podcast:

  • Why it's so important to direct your own care during pregnancy
  • Why I wanted to handle my own prenatal care
  • The tools I used for my care
  • What “clinical” signs I chose to monitor
  • How I journaled my pregnancy
  • Why I still wanted to have my midwife appointments
  • How I listened to Sadie's heartbeat and felt her position
