Morgan’s Cesarean, Hospital VBAC & UBAC Stories

July 2, 2022

In today's episode we meet Morgan, who is a traditional midwife and mother of five. Morgan’s first birth was a cesarean after she experienced the typical cascade of interventions in the hospital, and her second birth was a hospital VBAC that left her feeling like there was still something missing. Morgan then went on to have 3 unassisted births, each of which were vastly different.

Join us as Morgan shares her birth stories, how her varying birth experiences led her to stand up for herself and now provide the type of care and support she offers to women as a traditional midwife, and one of the impactful experiences she had while supporting a mother pursuing an HBA3C who gave birth 8 days after her water broke. We also discuss how emergency situations often occur because of unnecessary interventions, how interferences during and immediately after labor and birth disrupt a mother and baby’s natural flow of hormones, how laws, restrictions and licensure for midwifery vary from state to state and have actually harmed women and taken away their choices, how the system specifically targets certain populations of women, being confident in your birth plans even if it means no one else is on board, and how healing yourself can help others to heal.
