From C-Section, to Medwives, to Freebirth: The Journey of Pam Choosing Herself

Season #3

Today we are joined by Pam, who shares the powerful discovery of her own maternal power. After a forced c section because she and her baby were both surely too big, she knew what had happened was wrong and it could never happen again. So then she tried medical midwifery, and shares the complicated terrain of achieving a VBAC at home but still being left knowing she had been sabotaged and pathologized in so many ways.

And then, Pam gets pregnant with her daughter, and she knew she could not afford anything less than total autonomy. Pam tell us how she learned to trust herself, through her wild pregnancy and freebirth, which taught her to go on to advocate for her children for the rest of their lives.
