    EP 316: Reducing Your Chances of Having a Cesarean Birth with Elizabeth Joy

    EP 316: Reducing Your Chances of Having a Cesarean Birth with Elizabeth Joy

    In this episode, Elizabeth is talking all about what 1 hospital did to take their cesarean rate from 28.9% to 12.2% in 12 months. It is important to shed light on this since our cesarean rate is much higher than what the WHO calls for. Cesareans are necessary about 10-15% of the time in the United States, yet they are happening over 33% of the time. This means that about two-thirds of the cesareans taking place are preventable.

Love this podcast!

I have been listening to this podcast for a long time and I have gotten so much education and different perspectives from Liz and all the guests that come on. I love that Liz works hard to have highly educated guests to really expose her listeners to different views and discussions. I am in my 2nd pregnancy and have listened to this podcast since ttc with my first and I love all the information and resources that Liz talks about and all the great guests she brings on.

Room for improvement

Liz constantly uses some iteration of "dive in" or "season of life," and it drives me especially bonkers when she says "if you are listening" because of course we are listening or we wouldn't be hearing you in the first place. It's also odd that there are so many guests from Canada. Liz obviously doesn't have a real career - a former night club waitriess turned doula, and the "doula stuff" seems to have gone by the wayside. I like keeping up with Liz and her family life, but honestly, most of the information presented on this show is readily available on the internet.
