Episode 21: Reclaiming Midwifery & Childbirth with Dr Rachel Reed Can We Talk About This?

    • Health & Fitness

Dr Rachel Reed is one of the leading researcher’s in childbirth who discusses physiological birth and how misunderstood women’s bodies are. She also talks about birth as a rite of passage, birth culture, interventions, herstory, policy vs evidence based practice, and midwifery practice, and the complications that arise juggling culture, policy, informed consent and evidenced based practice. Dr Reed talks about centering the woman in birth, individualising our births as there is no right way to birth and how birth is allowed to be different for everyone. Finally, we chat about reclaiming midwifery and childbirth and where that responsibility lies.   
Listen out for the cicada’s in the background (just so lovely and ironic chatting to Dr Reed and cicada’s are a part of our conversation 😝)
