Reba’s Cesarean, Hospital VBAC & UBAC Stories

June 13, 2022

In today's episode we meet Reba, who shares her four birth stories, as well as her experiences with stillbirth and an ectopic pregnancy which resulted in losing an ovary and a fallopian tube. 

Join us as Reba shares her birth stories, the trauma she has endured, how it has shaped her into who she is and has influenced the decisions she makes for herself and her children, including her choice to birth unassisted after a cesarean twice. We also discuss if there is a true necessity for an induction if it is being scheduled around someone else’s schedule, how failed inductions are presented as a problem with a woman’s body instead of a problem within the medical system, how your mind and body protect you during and after birth, the problems associated with active management of the birth of the placenta, the intentionality and responsibility behind the choice to freebirth, how hospital policy is often built around provider liability and what is going to protect them from a potential lawsuit, obstetrical abuse and rape, common perceptions of those who choose home birth and unassisted birth, and how prenatal care differs between mainstream OB care, midwifery care, and doing all of your own care.
