Do you feel out of control in your pregnancy care? Are you yearning to bring God back into your time of birth? Do you feel unsupported and alone in this early motherhood journey? Do you want to find your voice to bring you the kind of care you’ve been dreaming to have?

It is possible to reclaim your pregnancy and postpartum so you can have the peace and joy God intended you to have during this beautiful time of life. This show is going to be an answer to the prayer you’ve had in your heart to find a better way.

Hey! I’m Lori Morris, a certified nurse-midwife and a mama of three babies born on my terms in the water outside of the hospital. I’ve got over 20 years of experience in this broken medicalized world of childbirth. I’ve attended hundreds of births as a nurse and later as a certified nurse-midwife in the hospital, in birth centers, and (my own) at home. I know how all sides of maternity care work and I am here to help Christian moms navigate this road with calm and clarity.

Inside this podcast, I will teach you how to:
--> Find and use your voice in your pregnancy care
--> Prepare for and rock your birth on your terms
--> Thrive during postpartum and breastfeeding

I can’t wait to help YOU break free from the grips of a broken medical system that has stripped the beauty and joy from what God made perfect. That doesn’t mean you can’t use the medical system, but we will work together to put it back in its proper place. You are more than a prenatal test result and your baby is more than a grapefruit on a pregnancy app! I give you permission to RELAX and ENJOY this time of life.

So if you’re ready to break away from the conventional to discover God’s beautiful plan for this fleeting time of life, go fill up that water bottle or grab some decaf and get ready. I’m about to show you how to reclaim your prenatal period, your childbirth, and your postpartum time as you become a woman and mother truly made in the image of God. YOU CAN DO THIS! He made you for this and I’m going to help you get there.

    EP 98 \ Why Home Birth Is Less Costly Than Hospital Birth (No Matter the Price)

    EP 98 \ Why Home Birth Is Less Costly Than Hospital Birth (No Matter the Price)

    Show Notes:
    We’ve touched on this before in another episode, but with our focus this past month on home birth, I wanted to spend some time looking more in depth at what comes with the global fee most midwives charge so you can appreciate the immense value that a home birth midwife brings.  I also wanted to look at potential long term costs that will far exceed the midwife’s fee.
     
    If you need help figuring out how to afford home birth, or if you need help with any other aspect of home birth, join us for the Home Birth Prep Course LIVE starting July 11th at 7pm Central time where we’ll spend Thursday nights for four weeks diving into these topics in a way that will ensure you are fully prepared for every aspect of your birth at home.  This page has all the details so go check it out!

    EP 97 \ Free Birth: A Safe Option Or Reckless Game of Russian Roulette? A Look At Unattended Birth

    EP 97 \ Free Birth: A Safe Option Or Reckless Game of Russian Roulette? A Look At Unattended Birth

    SHOW NOTES:
    I've been seeing a lot about free birth on social media and I've had moms ask me what my opinion is about whether it is a safe option or something to be avoided, so I decided it was time to do an episode on it.  It is a very interesting topic and it is certainly not new. We look at the reality of unattended birth in this episode and think about whether it might be a good option for you.
    If you are planning a freebirth and want to learn more about how to prepare your home, what supplies you need and where to get them, how get your family on board, how to make the transition into postpartum and breastfeeding, and so much more, sign up for my LIVE Home Birth Prep Course starting July 11th!

    EP 96 \ A Picture of the Reality of Hospital Birth for Labor or Induction

    EP 96 \ A Picture of the Reality of Hospital Birth for Labor or Induction

    Last week we took a look at home birth together.  Today, we’ll look at hospital birth together.  Not much more to say than that, other than to say if you haven’t listened to episode 95 yet, go do that first, then come back and listen to this episode so you can get the background.
    As a midwife who has worked in the hospital and out of the hospital to attend births, and earlier as a labor & delivery (L&D) nurse who helped women with birth in the hospital for many years, I've seen both sides of this picture first hand and they are certainly not the same.  There are really a very few women who truly need the interventions that take place every day to every women in the hospital setting.  Most women can safely give birth out of the hospital and have beautiful, physiologic birth with no complications and no need for intervention.

    EP 95 \ Is Home Birth Reckless or Scary? A Picture of What Home Birth Looks Like

    EP 95 \ Is Home Birth Reckless or Scary? A Picture of What Home Birth Looks Like

    Everything that is new to you seems scary.  Familiarity is what makes things comfortable and less scary.  This is true for many things and home birth is no different.  I get messages from listeners saying they would love to have a birth at home but their husband isn’t comfortable or maybe they’re scared to do it.  So I want to talk today about whether home birth is scary or if maybe we’re just scared of what you don’t know and your fear is really based on what you’ve been told which might not even be true. But God is not the author of fear….He tells us to FEAR NOT — so let’s get the information and move forward fearlessly.

Tells it like it is

Love Lori’s perspective as a former hospital practicioner whose eyes were opened to how birth was being manipulated in the system. Her podcast shares what she now knows — pregnancy and birth were beautifully designed by our all-knowing, all-loving Creator and we can fully trust in His ways and His plans for our own journeys.

dfsedco ,

First time mom listening to podcast

I am currently about to be 21 weeks pregnant and am so thankful I found this podcast! It is so awesome and helpful. I had no idea about the corruption that can come with this topic, pregnancy and birth. If you want to be in Gods will and trust in His plan for your pregnancy, listen to Lori and her education!! She has made me feel way more confident than I was before

DKLilly ,

Grounded and informative!

I’m so thankful for the perspectives and education I’ve gleaned from this podcast!
