A balanced and positive perspective

As a physician myself I think it is unusual to find balanced resources for patients that represent the medical facts but also the patient experience and correct for some of the inaccuracies in medicine. This podcast does an amazing job of striking this balance!

I had an emergency c section with my daughter 2 years ago. Despite understanding that the CS was medically appropriate and my professional experience, I still found the whole experience to be mildly traumatic and disappointing. This podcast was the main resource I used to help prepare for my second child’s birth and my plan to have a VBAC. I am now holding my new baby in my arms with so much pride, love and self confidence and trust because I had a smooth and successful VBAC.

I am thankful for this podcast which gave me ideas, confidence, strength and a sense of community in what is otherwise a very isolating experience. I especially appreciate the variety of stories that are shared, including VBAC attempts that result in another C section so that we can all prepare ourselves for the different outcomes. No matter what happens we are strong women and have a welcome spot in this community, even when we may feel alone with our thoughts and fears. Thank you Julie and Meagan!

So thankful!!!

I just wanted to say thank you for creating this podcast! I had my baby girl via emergency C-section at 30 weeks due to several medical complications with my baby. We spent 95 days in the NICU and while in there waiting for my sweet girl to grow I started to research vbacs to see if it was right for me. Once I found this podcast it sealed the deal. I absolutely can not wait to vbac with my next pregnancy. You all are incredible to listen to because you provide a wealth of knowledge and positivity, but are also so fun and entertaining to listen to. Amazing job ladies👏🏼

So grateful I found this podcast!

After having my Emergency c-section last year, I struggled with all these displaced emotions. Here I was so grateful for my healthy happy baby, but I found myself feeling hurt, like I had something taken from me, and I struggled finding a safe place to share this since it felt as if no one around me had ever experienced the same thing I did. This podcast and group of women are my safe place! I am expecting baby #2 and am so so grateful for the empowerment that the stories told here have given me. I am so excited to try for a VBAC this time, and the more I learn here, the more confident I become! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this podcast!
