S3 EP95: Amanda Freeman - Hospital birth/PPH + Birth Centre + Twin Freebirth/Footling breech Positive Birth Australia

    • Kids & Family

On today’s show, holistic nutrition coach and mother-of-four, Amanda, takes us on the journey that led her to freebirth her twin girls at home. Amanda experienced obstetric abuse during her first birth that caused a severe postpartum haemorrhage. Her second birth, although not as traumatic, solidified in her mind that any future babies would be born at home.

When the urning for a third child started to arise, Amanda and her husband were given a 2% chance to conceive naturally due to his vasectomy reversal. Declining the IVF route, they instead chose to surrendered to what was meant for them; conceiving their twin girls only a short time later. Amanda threw herself into all research available around physiological twin birth. She innately knew her body was capable of birthing her babies but her options were limited when it came to support. With her extensive knowledge and understanding around twin birth, she knew the only place she could give her babies the time and presence they needed to come earthside, was undisturbed at home.

Amanda shares the awe inspiring moments she bear witness to the power of her body's physiological dance to bring her transverse babies down to be born, and how she intwined her knowledge and instincts to navigate a pivotal point in her birth.
