From Fear to Confidence: Overcoming Anxieties in Pregnancy and Childbirth
This podcast episode kicks off our series called Tips from a Birth Educator. I met our guest Latoya Murray Johnson, founder of The Birth Impact, online a few years ago and she is one of my favorite people! I hope you stay around until the end to hear the best birth story a childbirth educator can hope for!
Latoya is a Lamaze childbirth educator in Georgia and is also a doula and doula trainer for the Birth Impact – and international, collaborative birth worker movement.
We discuss the state of birth work in Georgia, the importance of choosing the right hospital, and the need for respect and autonomy in the medical arena. She instills confidence and advocacy in her parents and believes that no one can take away your destiny to birth how you wish. LaToya discusses the challenges and rewards of being a birth worker and how she wants parents in class earlier. This show highlights the transformative impact of childbirth education and the value of community in the birth worker field.
Here’s the “OMG! I’m Pregnant Course,” to get you started EARLY with all things birth! Let us help you chill out and get things in order to keep the fears down and the excitement up!
