Birth Story, Andrea: “How Trusting Your Intuition Impacts Your Birth Experience.”

By: Care Messer | Birth Story, Hypnobirthing, Podcast | October 26, 2023

In this episode of the Birth Education Center podcast, I welcome Andrea, a former Hypnobirthing student to share her birth story. Having a baby towards the end of the pandemic had its challenges, one of them being her doula could not physically attend her birth. Andrea discusses her preparation for labor, including practicing mindfulness and Hypnobirthing techniques. She recounts going into labor and not feeling fearful. Andrea also shares a frank discussion she had with her nurse at the end of her hospital stay and it shines a big light on where our birthing system is lacking. The conversation then shifts to postpartum experiences and the importance of staying connected and seeking support. The episode concludes with encouragement and reflection on the power of trust and connection.
