Courtney’s Cesarean, Hospital VBAC, Birth Center VBAC & HBAC Stories

May 30, 2022

In today's episode we meet Courtney, who has had a wide variety of birthing experiences. Courtney had a cesarean with her first baby after going through the cascade of interventions that started with an induction for a suspected “big baby,” and then had a hospital VBAC, a birth center VBAC and an HBAC. 

Join us as Courtney shares her birth stories, as well as her experience with having a miscarriage and her family’s journey in fostering and adopting. We also discuss feeling dehumanized and like you’re part of an assembly line when giving birth at the hospital, how cesareans can affect family planning, having a people-pleasing personality and experiencing pushback when making choices that go against the mainstream narrative, how having high expectations can affect the labor and birth process, entering labor and birth with an open mind, how different each and every pregnancy can be, the differences between having a VBAC at the hospital, at a birth center and at home, and the growth that you go through as a mother when you stop caring what other people think and feel confident in the decisions that you make for yourself and your children.
