Your Birth, Your Worth Podcast


Feb 20, 2019

Today on the podcast Darcy shares her experiences about giving birth to her three children. She had her first child, her daughter, 15 years ago and had planned on having a natural birth. She labored for a long time and eventually needed a cesarean section. This was a complete shock and not something she had planned for. It took her on a rollercoaster of emotions. Her second birth and third births were planned cesareans. Her birth postpartum experience with her first child led to feelings of unworthiness as a mother and ultimately inspired her to become a postpartum doula. She also learned some valuable lessons about speaking up regarding your needs while in the hospital and the importance of asking questions to doctors, nurses and hospital staff.

Key Takeaway: Your experience matters.  Your emotions are valid and you are worthy of being supported and listened to.
