006: A Home Birth Story
It’s my baby’s first birthday this week, and to celebrate I wanted to reflect back on his birth and give an idea of what it is a home birth might look like! I often get messages asking about whether I felt having a home birth was risky, or whether I would do it again given the added complication of being transferred to hospital – so I wanted to cover my birthing story to help cover off some of those questions. The role of hypnobirthing in having a confident birth still blows my mind, even now, so I’ve also asked the lovely Katy from “The Birth Thing” to chat all things hypnobirthing and preparing for a confident and calm birth for your baby.
In this episode we’re diving into:
- Examples of letting your body take the lead
- How to navigate the surprises that may come with your home birth
- An introduction to Hypnobirthing and where it can help with your delivery.
- How to reframe your expectations and understand the distinction between a positive birth vs. a perfect one.
- And much more!
