    Want to hear a story of a surprise twin homebirth?? I’m excited to bring this conversation I had with Elizabeth of Purely Parsons to you. We talked about so many things, how culture gives us a twisted view of birth, the benefits of being at home, the difference in prenatal care between home and hospital. It’s so so good! Elizabeth has such a heart for women to know and experience the truth. The enemy has lied to us for way too long and women are rising up to speak life and truth into birth again! Let’s get back to birthing the way God designed!

    Ep 144//My Exact Routine for Early Labor!

    Join the waitlist for Homebirth Hub - bit.ly/PHHwaitlist
    If you’re a first time mom you have probably asked or will ask “but how will I know when I’m in labor.” That’s such a good question but I also think it may not be as important to answer as you think it is. For my last 3 births I have experienced prodromal labor which feels like early labor and it lasts for 2-3 weeks before I actually end up having a baby. This has taught me a few things… I’m excited to share with you today what my exact routine is for when I go into labor and the questions I ask myself so I’m prepared for what’s ahead. Early labor is my absolute favorite and I think that I can attribute it to this routine. This is also what I would tell all of my doula clients to do.

Truly Encouraging

I love that this is a Christ centered podcast pertaining birth. Not only that, but the information, stories, scriptures all are so encouraging and uplifting and what needs to be heard regarding birth.

Bailey Trav ,

First truly Christ centered podcast for homebirth!

First truly Christ centered podcast for homebirth I have been able to find! I love how she’s ties everything back to Gods design and care for us. I love that she doesn’t try and skip over the subjects that could ruffle feathers but gives us truth when everyone is is trying to sugar coat things.

You can really have a peaceful birth.

People thought I was crazy when I was visualizing a peaceful and beautiful birth every day during my pregnancy. But I knew the power the mind has and I had faith in the design that God created. Thank you Aly for providing a space for more women to feel supported and encouraged to deliver at home.

I should also add that I have attended many births as a Birth Photographer and also license massage therapist certified and Prenatal and Labor massage. I was just at a peaceful homebirth a few days ago. I’ve also been a trauma informed coach an exclusive, postpartum group to help women who experienced a traumatic birth.
