What if YOU Were in Charge of Pregnancy & Birth?

What if You Were in Charge of Your Birth

What if we as mothers were to stand up – to stand in charge of pregnancy, of birth, of mothering? What if we were to start a quiet, confident rumble that grows into a roar too big to ignore – that shakes the very foundations of “becoming mama” – and gives it back to women, where it belongs? What if YOU were in charge of your pregnancy and birth?

Topics I Cover in This Podcast:

  • What would happen if we turned around all the “standard” questions about birth choices?
  • How can we get people to stop and consider different beliefs about birth
  • Why standard “shut up and get in the stirrups” rhetoric is harmful to women (and babies)
  • How to talk to someone hostile towards natural birth
  • What to say to someone who says you’ll need pain relief medications
  • How we can create change without being obnoxious
  • How we can stand up for babies and birthing women without being subordinate
  • Why EVERY pregnant woman needs to stand up and be in charge
