Premature, How Parental Intuition and HypnoBirthing Maintained a Sacred Birth Experience in the Fear-Based Birthing System of America

Episode Summary

My guests today are the inspirational Heidi Schmidgall and Kristin Carver. They will be talking about how they successfully protected their birth and maintained it as a celebratory, sacred and spiritual occasion despite being surprised with an early term labor and birth, an experience where our conventional birthing system leans toward medical intervention. This important conversation is not just for parents, it’s for everyone.  We will begin to shed light on how we create our world through the way we support our birthing mothers and families. There’s definitely heart and humor in this beautifully woven story that unfolds.

Show Notes:

We will hear from a mother and father that were thrust into a fear and intervention based system when their waters broke at 34 weeks pregnant.  They will be talking about how they successfully protected their birth and maintained it as a celebratory, sacred and spiritual occasion.  I will be touching on the gravity of how we treat birth in this culture and how it creates, changes and shapes who we are as humans.  We’ll get a glimpse of their intimate birth journey where they remained the principal decision-makers in their birth.  We will also chat about the role their independent hypnobirthing class and preparation played and how they worked together in becoming a strong and unified family when being faced with surprising turns in their birth journey.
