Today’s “Birth Story for the Summer” comes from Danielle Major. Danielle was a little thrown off by the fact that her second baby apparently didn't get the memo that second babies tend to come quicker, but the reward of finding out whether she had a boy or a girl was worth the wait. Find out how it all unfolds.
We continue with our special “Birth Stories for the Summer” series. Today’s story comes from Adriana Aleman-Crane, who has two adorable girls. Her first birth involved several days of prodromal labor, and if you don't know what that is, you really want to listen to this episode.
We continue with our special “Birth Stories for the Summer” series. Today’s story comes from Alison Spath and it has a bit of everything, as it was a planned homebirth after two cesareans (HBA2C). I won’t tell you just yet how it turned out, so you are going to have to listen until the end. But there was castor oil involved.
For the next 8 weeks, I’m switching the spotlight from the pros to the amazing mamas, who share their birth stories in order to bust down TV and movie myths, and tell about what real-life birth looks like. Today we’ll hear from Hinda Mandell and husband Matthew White, who’s fabulous birth involves a cheese tasting.
What would it look like if instead of trying to “bounce back” to our pre-pregnancy frames, we embraced the new changes: stretch marks, jiggly bellies and all? I talk with Ashlee Wells Jackson, about how she’s helping hundreds of women do just that, through the 4th trimester body project.
