Did you set intentions for your birth(s)?
The last time we spoke with Kayleigh Johnson, DIAH mama from episode 77, she was setting some powerful intentions and visions for her upcoming birth. Today, we get to hear the full birth story!
From leaking fluid at 36 weeks, which would prove to be a trial run, to birthing time arriving at 42 weeks and 6 days, Kayleigh shares the challenges of not getting worked up during the stages of prodromal labor and trying to enjoy the process.
We’ve heard a few instances on the show of women being in denial that they are actually in labor when the time comes, for whatever reason it’s just not sinking in mentally. Kayleigh describes this phenomenon that she experienced herself.
Kayleigh brings the perspective of comparison between hospital birth with interventions and a home birth without any. She also shares the difference in postpartum experiences.
And we get into some of the realness of postpartum life with a newborn and another tiny human running around.
