S3 EP94: Monika Rad - Homebirth transfer/Surprise footling breech birth Positive Birth Australia

    • Kids & Family

Today’s episode features Monika sharing the surprise footling breech birth of her son, Luka. Living a holistic lifestyle, Monika mindfully nourished herself for six months prior to conception, using podcasts and books to slowly absorb information about birth. When she discovered she was pregnant, she knew the only place she could sink safely into the hormonal flow of labour, was at home.

After her waters gently broke on NYE she felt confident to stick with her dinner plans, having surges throughout the night as she celebrated with friends.
Once home she began flowing with the waves of labour, transcending into the next season of life while simultaneously saying goodbye to the year that was as fireworks burst in the distance. Only a short time later, she would feel the urge to push.

Monika shares with us the moment her husband discovered their son was breech, and how valuable techniques she learned through hypnobirthing helped her regain awareness of her energy and surrender completely to the journey ahead of her as her son made his powerful entrance earthside.
