[Birth Stories] How This Doula Exercised Informed Consent Throughout a Long Birth
How Your Baby Helps During the Birthing Process
How to Stand Up for Your Birth Rights
Great birth podcast especially for those interested in natural birth!
Very biased and one sided episodes, specifically the circumcision and infant sleep basic episodes. The host and guest just provided one sided opinion and belief without any evidence, fact.
Disappointing New Format
This podcast used to be much better but the new format is half commercials and half just a few minutes of the most basic birth info you can find via a quick web search. Add in the new anti-feminist clunky PC language that’s so offensive to women that’s been obnoxiously inserted everywhere and it’s become disappointing. Oh, and an ad promoting abortion, the most unnecessary and riskiest of pregnancy interventions...so if you believe human rights begin in utero and birth should involve live babies, you might be even more disappointed.
