Who has experienced their ups and downs throughout pregnancy?
Our DIAH for today’s birth story is not shy about sharing the fact that pregnancy can be an emotional time. For Chanté and her husband Patrick, they were finishing school, starting their chiropractic practice and moving. And oh hey, yeah - preparing for a baby!
Chanté shares with us when she first learned about home birth and how it sparked her interest to have one of her own some day. She also shares a number of great resources she used during her journey.
Then we hear her birth story of her son Eamon, who arrived at just over 41 weeks. She describes it as the perfect night with her midwife, midwife assistant and Patrick as her allstar birth team. For her, her midwife was like a lifeguard calmly and quietly taking watch while there to guide and instruct as needed. And those waves of labor were so quick that Chanté didn’t make it to the birthing pool in time!
We also get into some postpartum tips for mamas to take care of themselves while they navigate the new territory of caring for a newborn!
