    Birth of a mother: Rosie & Mac

    In todays episode, midwives Sophie and Ashlee are joined by Rosie - who shares her incredible waterbirth with her first son, Mac. With Ashlee as Rosie’s midwife the theme of this episode is truly how impactful woman centred care can be.
    Rosie explores how the support of her doula helped change her perception of birth and taught her to let go of expectation. How she changed models of care guided by intuition & the importance of reminding your partner to check if theres petrol in the car!
    As usual there’s lots of laughs and a big emphasis on her transition to motherhood - we hope you love this episode as much as we do!

Excellent

Highly recommend to anyone who wants the most up to date information about pregnancy and birth. All delivered (ha!) in a friendly, chatty way by two fully qualified midwives who know what they are talking about.

Informative! Engaging! And covers all things I didn’t know I needed to know that!

An informative podcast that is easy listening. I’ve learnt so much about the female body and just how amazing women are! They need to teach this in school! 10/10! 🌟

Funny and Informative at the same time

I was lucky to have the care of Ash and Sophie during my first pregnancy and birth. Both are outstanding in their field.

I’m a nerd for all things birth and babies and taking this podcast for a walk is my ‘me’ time for the week 🙏
