In this episode, I am joined by Bess English, a mother of two who lives near Pensacola, Florida. Bess describes her first hospital birth experience as traumatic. When she was pregnant with her second child, she and her husband took the Evidence Based Birth Childbirth Class to learn more about advocacy tools and comfort measures.
Bess’ attempted VBAC home birth did not go as planned – and she and her husband found themselves back in the hospital setting making some difficult choices. But this time, it was a different story.
Hear Bess tell her birth stories, how she processed her birth trauma, and utilized advocacy tools to navigate and feel empowered in her complicated second birth.
