57. Can We Reclaim Birth? Please.
(Trigger Warning: Discussions around birth trauma and death.)Are we birthing right, here in the West? Is it possible to birth like a boss? And what happens when it all goes wrong? This episode, Nana-Adwoa, Lauren and Endy share the truth about their 2022 birth stories, giving candid accounts of their very different experiences of labour, birth and the fourth trimester. We delve into inductions, emergency c-sections, and postnatal depression, and we answer your questions on home births, age gaps and being a ‘geriatric mum’. Join us as we discuss this immense rite of passage and give advice on self advocacy, remaining in your power and trusting your body and your baby. You got this, mama.www.blackmumsupfront.com@blackmumsupfrontEdited and mixed by Yinka Awojobi @YinkaMode
