Changing the Birth Narrative

What happens in birth? Why are we so afraid of it? Do we need to be that afraid of it? Can you really have a calm, empowered experience? Does it hurt? Will I tear? What are my choices? This episode looks at the FAQ’s and the current conversation around birth, breaking down the culture of fear and dread and questioning the current dynamics through the lens of #metoo and whether birth can be a feminist issue. From the widely differing stats of different birth choices and their respective outcomes to hypnobirthing, tearing, birth plans and doulas, this episode looks to guide all women through their thinking and create a positive outlook for all of us.
