I have been a pseudo-doula for several of my friends, assisting them during their labors, in breastfeeding once baby arrived, and answering their every question along the way and being on text-alert in the middle of the night.
While I am not nor I have never been a nurse or doctor, I am passionate about natural birth!
I have completed the Bradley Method course, Been to multiple hospital-led birthing courses, attended birthing lectures, completed home birthing classes, and more. My first daughter was a frank breech baby that I labored naturally at home with for 14 hours. After trying to deliver in a hospital, we wound up with an emergency cesarean. Our second daughter was a natural home birth with a midwifery team.
Please note that you should still be under the care of a OBGYN or Certified Midwife throughout your pregnancy. All medical needs and questions should be directed to them as I am not in any way capable of answering your medical questions. I am not sure what path life will put me on, but many times I have thought that I might pursue midwifery myself. I am just not sure yet and definitely not qualified to try to treat, diagnose, cure, or prevent any medical issue you many encounter. Students enrolling in the course will be required to sign a waiver acknowledging that they understand this and that they will not distribute material in a paid or unpaid fashion.
