    Meg's Homebirth Experiences Without her Husband

    Meg's Homebirth Experiences Without her Husband

    Megan's husband is in the Navy and he missed two of the births that Megan describes to us today. Her birth stories are equally empowering and humbling as we come to the realization that many other women do this on a daily basis. We want to take a moment to honor those in active duty and our Veterans. Thank you for your sacrifice. Because of you and your families, the rest of us are able to live our lives. Thank you.

    Erin's Unplanned Roadside Birth

    Erin is mama to two beautiful girls and currently pregnant with her third child. Today she is sharing her story of how she unexpectedly gave birth on the side of the road. 
    Having been induced with her first daughter, Erin wasn't sure how far she was into labor until it was too late. On the way to the hospital, Erin had her husband pull over so she could push out her daughter in one single push! All while her 2 year old was in the back seat.

    Kirsten's Redeeming Homebirth after 2 Hospital Transfers

    Kirsten's Redeeming Homebirth after 2 Hospital Transfers

    Kirsten planned homebirths for all three of her daughters. Her first birth ended up transferring to a hospital immediately postpartum due to breathing complications with her brand new daughter. Her second birth also resulted in a hospital transfer due to baby's heartrate falling during the pushing stage. Upset and hurt by her two birth outcomes, Kirsten and her husband waited to get pregnant again for a while. Upon getting pregnant, they sadly miscarried at 12 weeks. Taking all of this with her, Kirsten found out she was pregnant again and was determined to have the homebirth of her dreams. Kirsten talks about how she prepared mentally and emotionally for this birth and how empowered she felt afterwards.

    Finally! 
    After years of dreaming, months of planning, and weeks of hard hard work, the pilot epise is here! Now don't get too excited, this is just an introduction to me and my why behind starting this podcast.
    The Birth Nest officially launches December 7, 2021 with several episodes recorded and ready to be released. 
    Today's episode will let you know a little bit about me, why I am doing this, and a little snipped of my last pregnancy and homebirth.
    Inspiration. Education. Empowerment.
