    E18 Mikayla Quartermaine | Publicly Funded Home birth, Hospital Transfer, Hypnobirth

    In todays episode I am chatting to Mikayla about the birth of her daughter Nyra. Mikayla planned a home birth through the Publicly Funded Midwifery program at her local hospital in Perth. Unfortunately at a late ultrasound it was picked up that Nyra was measuring on the smaller side and she was no longer cleared to home birth through that program. Mikayla laboured at home with her husband and doula but delivered in hospital under the care of her MGP midwife. Mikayla shares how although Nyra’s birth was straightforward and there was minimal intervention, she still left feeling disappointed with the experience and struggled for a long time to accept that she didn’t get the home birth she had envisaged. You some beautiful photos of Mikayla and Nyra on my instagram page @keepbirthwild.podcast. If you’re listening in every week, don’t forget to click subscribe so you get notified when a new episode is published, and leave a star rating or review. I would love to know your thoughts on the show, what you’re enjoying and anything you would like to hear more of.

    E17 Kellie Andrews | Two Births, Private Midwifery Care, PPH, SVT, Pleasurable Birth

    In todays episode I am chatting to Kellie Andrews about her two home births. Kellie has just started a project called The Furry Turtle, where she creates upcycled garments. All profits go to Sisters Inside, an independent community organisation advocating for the human rights of First Nations women and girls in the prison system, and providing services to meet their individual needs. If you would like to support Kelly and Sisters Inside, you can find the The Furry Turtle on instagram @the_furry_turtle. Visit Sisters Inside at https://sistersinside.com.au/ to find out more about their services and for more ways to get involved.  Kellie birthed both her two daughters at home and had very different but beautiful and empowering births. With Banjo Kellie had a long labour and birth which ended in a hospital transfer after birth due to excessive bleeding and retained membranes. During Wilke’s pregnancy Kellie experienced a condition where her heart rate suddenly increased and changed in rhythm. She was lucky to get treated and discharged from hospital quickly and went on to have a fast powerful birth at home. This time around Kellie opted for a managed third stage and although she did still experience heavy bleeding it was able to be managed at home. Kellie takes us right through both of those births, and along the way we discuss consent in the context of the hospital system, experiencing pleasurable feelings during birth, and the importance of prioritising a woman experience of her birth as well as a healthy baby. Kellie had a birth photographer at both of her births and the images are absolutely amazing so make sure you check those out at keepbirthwild.podcast

She was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and went on to have an induced vaginal birth.When she fell pregnant with Teddy she decided to have a home birth. It was identified at Teddy’s 20 week scan that there was an irregularity with his digestive system, however she was still able to go ahead with her home birth as planned. Teddy had surgery on his intestines at 3 days old so Laura describes what it was like to realise that there was something not right with him and her experience of having a baby in the NICU.You can see photos from Laura's homebirth with Teddy on my instagram @keepbirthwild.podcast and you can also find Laura on Instagram @this.wild.mama !

    In today's episode I chat with Tori about the births of her two children Badger and Scout.Tori’s first birth was in hospital where she was induced due to reduced amniotic fluid. Being a first time mum Tori put her all her trust in the hospital system but ended up not feeling prepared for the birth, or like the reasons for induction were fully explained to her.The second time around she knew she wanted the opposite experience to her first birth. She chose to birth at home with her husband and a doula, however her plans changed due the bushfires and coronavirus pandemic. Tori went on to have a beautiful healing unassisted birth at home with her husband, mum and sister.I just wanted to say a quick thank you to those of you who have taken the time to scroll down on your podcast app and leave a rating or a review there.
