In this episode I interview my mother, Carol, about her experience giving birth with “twilight sleep” – a state of sedation and general anesthesia that used to be administered during the second stage of labor. Carol is a mother of six. She has experienced three different types of childbirth: birth with twilight sleep, birth with an epidural, and birth without an epidural fully awake. She’s also a retired nurse and a retired pediatric nurse practitioner. With Mothers’ Day coming up in a couple of weeks, I thought it would be fun to share with you an interview that my mom did with my college students a few years ago. I’m excited for you to hear her incredibly interesting perspectives on birth.
I also want to announce that we are having a special Mothers’ Day sale! We will be sending out an email to our list this coming Saturday (join our email list via the link in the resources below!) to roll out a special limited-edition gift bundle that we have created.
