In this episode, Host Lisa and her husband, Bryan, share their first baby’s birth story. It’s a story of giving birth in an in-hospital birthing center in Manhattan at Mt. Sinai West in 2005. You’ll hear about a textbook-length 20+ hr labor with the expert labor support of a doula, and you’ll hear about the gamechanger self-advocacy tips and strategies that they used (and you can use!) to avoid interventions that were strategically avoidable and rendered unnecessary. These strategies helped us achieve what Lisa had very much hoped for, which was an unmedicated, vaginal birth. // Birth Matters NYC group & private childbirth classes: birthmattersnyc.com // SHOW NOTES with written birth story, transcript, resources & photos: birthmattersshow.com

Transcript

Lisa

You're listening to the Birth Matters podcast, episode two.

Bryan

It's like NASA has dropped you off on Mars with the most expensive piece of equipment ever developed, and no instruction book, and as they're lifting off and -- you know -- flying away, leaving you there, somebody just waves and says, "You'll be fine!"

Lisa

Hey there, and welcome to
