A Message from your Evidence Based Birth® Instructor:
My first baby is now a high schooler, but the memories of that first pregnancy and birth are still so strong. We were thrilled to be becoming parents, and I dove into learning about this amazing time. When my labor started, I was so confident – I thought I was well prepared. Not long after arriving at the hospital I learned otherwise.
When my labor didn’t proceed as expected, the pressure for interventions steadily increased. One by one, I accepted them. And my body rejected them, with one complication after another. My son was born in the operating room, with a first APGAR of 4. Instead of cuddling him, I watched the backs of the staff working on him, no one telling me anything. When he was stable, a nurse briefly touched his cheek to mine, then whisked him off to the nursery. This was not even close to what I had imagined for my birth, and all these years later I still remember how that felt.
Like so many parents, we didn’t know what questions to ask or how to decide when to say yes and when to ask for time to consider our options. As my now 97-year-old grandmother will tell you, memories from your birth experiences stay with us, forever.
In the past decade and a half, I’ve worked to positively impact birth, one family at a time. I am so excited to be able to broaden that impact through the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class!
