One hospital birth. Two home births. Two birthing center deliveries. Three scheduled cesarean sections.
Meagan and Sarah have had eight pregnancies between them (now eight kids ages 3-18!) and about as wide a cross-section of birth experiences as you can get. In Episode 38, at the request of several pregnant listeners, we travel back in time and share our pregnancy and birth stories with the benefit of hindsight. Join us as we talk about medical decision-making, finding your trusted pregnancy and birth cheerleaders, and what we might have done differently.
Links we mentioned (or should have!) in Episode 38:
- Are you “done” having babies? (The Mom Hour, Episode 7)
- Call the Midwife (BBC series we both adore)
- PregTASTIC Online Radio (fantastic pregnancy podcast that has not published new episodes since 2012 but is still an incredible resource)
- The Birth Hour and Postpartum Podcast (two more pregnancy- and childbirth-themed podcasts)
