Care’s Birth Story with the Birth Kweens

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

In this podcast episode, I travel back in time to join Karly and Ali, hosts of the Birth Kweens podcast. We discussed a range of topics, including my birth story with my daughter Finnley, my journey into being a doula and a childbirth educator. We also delve into the importance of sex in relation to birth and pregnancy. I share my personal experiences with childbirth, including my decision to give birth at a birthing center and the differences I noticed between the midwifery and medical models of care. We also discuss the transformative power of birth and the importance of processing and learning from previous birth experiences. The episode concludes with a discussion on the significance of sharing birth stories and experiences, the need for community and support within the birth community, and the importance of human connection and touch. Huge shout out to Karly and Ali for allowing us to republish this episode – –
