Birth Story Podcast
Summary: Hi! I'm Heidi, experienced Birth Doula and host of the Birth Story podcast brought to you by Birth Story Media™. I support moms through their fertility and pregnancy journeys and help have trauma free birth stories and labor stories. When moms embrace their pregnant bellies and their pregnancy and await the arrival of their baby or babies they are going to feel many emotions and have many visions about what will happen during child birth. "Is this normal?" "What does a contraction feel like?" "What does the day of labor look like?" "What is a Doula?" I want every mom's birth story to be peaceful, happy and a memory that they will love to share. Birth Story podcast is my way to provide childbirth education through story telling in the comfort of your home and to prepare a mom for motherhood with any birth story that unfolds for their pregnancy, labor and delivery. If a pregnant mom uses an OBGYN, a midwife, a doula, a birth doula, or has a home birth, water birth, natural birth, C-section, cesarean birth, hospital birth, medicated birth, epidural birth, pitocin birth, an induction or induced labor, are having multiple babies or a single baby, a birth plan or no birth plan; I started this podcast to help moms learn and prepare for their labor and delivery and birth though birth story telling.

Brook decides on a home birth for baby #2 after hiring a doula and preparing for a hospital birth. And get this-she kept it secret to her friends and family! Learn all about autonomous birthing and her wonderful homebirth on today's episode.
Brooke is one of my doula clients and she was featured in last week's episode (episode 55) when we visitied True Rest Float Spa to try out float therapy while pregnant. This episode was the very beginning of COVID. I was able to attend Brooke's birth in person, but then the world shut down. We opted for a Zoom postnatal and on a whim I hit record when she was retelling her birth story.
I sit down with Dr. Alex Montgomery, CNM and Brook Craft, NP and the owner of True Rest Float Spa in Charlotte, NC Doug Centola. We talk about the safety of floating (in our professional opinions) and the research behind this amazing relaxation venue.
Imagine your ideal birth. Where are you? Who is with you? In what position are you laboring? Listen in to hear Katelyn’s most recent birth story. Her experience was “magical,” as she was surrounded with exactly the right people in exactly the right time– it was a peaceful, undisturbed birth. Katelyn set up her birthing space very intentionally and set her mind to the exact kind of labor she wanted to experience.
