Choosing a Drama-Free Birth with Nya

Watch this episode HERE 

In this episode Nya and I cover navigating a journey of spontaneity, vulnerability, and primal strength, Nya's path to motherhood reveals the profound challenges and beauty of embracing one's instincts in the face of societal pressures.

Here’s what you’ll hear: 

  • Nya’s spontaneous choice to get pregnant the first time (& the absurd thing the doctor said to her when she confirmed her pregnancy).
  • The deep shadow work she and her partner did to prepare for baby and motherhood. 
  • How vulnerable women are during birth and how easy it is to say ‘yes’ when we really want to say ‘no.’
  • An intervention from her midwife that she was totally unaware of during her birth and how she handled it after.
  • How she had ‘enough’ interventions to know she didn’t want to hire a midwife again.
  • How the Radical Birth Keeper School was the turning point for completely changing the way she lives her life.
  • How she went from asking her midwife what to do in her first pregnancy to totally embracing a wild pregnancy during her second pregnancy. 
  • How she had a nine-moon pregnancy and the witchy way she found she was pregnant in the first place.
