In today’s episode, we return to our cesarean birth stories that were scheduled for last month’s Cesarean Awareness Month following our 3-week detour to share birth stories taking place during the Covid-19 pandemic. Do be sure to give us a follow over on Instagram or Facebook (both @birthmattersnyc) for some educational content on this topic that we posted last month. The month of May will be the last few episodes of our first season, as we'll be going on hiatus for the summer to prepare lots more great content for the fall.

Today, Amanda & Grant share their firstborn’s birth story. Amanda describes how she developed cholestasis during her pregnancy, which is a medical indication for induction. She’ll describe the reasons that the way her labor played out led to baby needing to be born via cesarean. While this was not what Amanda had wanted after she had planned for an unmedicated birth with a midwife and doula, it was still an overall positive birth experience for her due to the compassionate care she received from everyone around her, including her partner, Grant. Get ready for all the feels when you hear both Grant and Amanda express love, admiration, and appreciation for each other throughout this momentous life experience and how this aspect helped everything feel like an overall sweet memory. Amanda will also share a bit about the early challenges she and baby faced as they started breastfeeding.
