Birth Story, Matt & Janet “We Knew We Could Do It.”

By: Care Messer | Birth Story, Hypnobirthing, Podcast | September 7, 2023

In this podcast episode, I interview former students Matt and Janet about their birth story. Matt and Janet share their fears and how they prepared for birth, including taking a Hypnobirthing class. They also talk about their experience with hiring a doula and giving birth during the COVID-19 pandemic. Janet shares her determination to have a natural birth without an epidural, inspired by her mother’s experience. Matt also opens up with a vulnerable topic that all partners should hear about before having a baby. They open up about the importance of communication and therapy in maintaining a strong relationship after having a baby.
