Freebirthing with Shoulder Dystocia, Regretting the NICU, and Flourishing

Season #4

On today’s show, Sarah shares a common and familiar story of women who trade in their pregnancy and birth desires in order to make other people comfortable. With her first child, Sarah had a homebirth, but many of the decisions she made were for her partner- and even for her midwife. Sarah shares how it wasn’t until she freebirthed her second baby, that she realized what went wrong with her first birth. In her third and most recent birth, Sarah shares the riveting and heartbreaking story of her baby spending his first hour of life between the fluid spaces of life and death, and his first weeks of life in the NICU. Sarah shares her ongoing processing of birth, mothering, and surrendering to the wild unknown.
