    #6: Madison's Birth Story

    In this episode of the Built To Birth Podcast, Madison shares her quick change from a hospital birth to a home birth after realizing the changing protocols at her hospital due to COVID 19. Her journey toward motherhood includes pregnancy loss, staying positive and navigating through the season of infant loss, then facing pregnancy and COVID 19 at the same time, and then figuring out what giving birth during COVID 19 would look like for her and her husband. At first very hesitant to the idea of giving birth at home, especially giving birth at home first baby and all, Madison shares with us how she and her partner got on board together to agree on a home birth during COVID 19.
    Finding a midwife who would attend their home birth, changed their perspective on choosing a home birth. After learning to depth of knowledge and experience midwifery care entails, Madison was sold and she shares about the importance of every woman finding a care provider that they can trust.
    As you are figuring how to prepare for birth, don't miss out on the power of positive birth stories. Positive stories of women giving birth offer a sneak peak into a real, raw, empowered, and beautiful birth experience. So enjoy this episode, one of many positive labor and delivery stories, that Madison shares with us!

So Thankful

I’m so appreciative for you!! Your videos helped me through pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I wanted a natural birth and I was able to have that! I had such a positive experience and now I’m 8months pp and feeling so good! Now that I’ve birthed natural in a hospital, I’m hoping for a home birth for our next baby🥰🥰love you and thank you for empowering new mamas and mamas who have had traumatic birth experiences.

The podcast all 1st time mom’s need!

So happy I stumbled upon Bridget’s podcast. Just hit second trimester today and I already feel way more confident in the birth process and most importantly what I am capable of. This podcast is a must for all moms to help calm and educate themselves before birth. Thank you Bridget!

First time mom

I’m expecting my first baby in early July. I’ve been listening to these birth stories as I go for my daily walks and it has been uplifting and empowering to hear so many different birth stories. I can actually say I look forward to my own birth story, whatever it may be, whereas a few months ago I would have said I’m a bit fearful. Thanks for putting these together and gathering up stories that need to be shared!
