In this captivating episode, we are learning all about non-outcome-based childbirth preparation with my special guest, Amanda Gorman. As a childbirth educator and postpartum support advocate, Amanda brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table.


She shares some incredible insights into what it means to approach childbirth without being tied to a specific outcome, discusses three different types of knowing that can aid women in their birth preparation, and even gives us her top three things she wishes she’d known when giving birth the first time.


She also spends time covering a variety of birthing classes that women should consider looking into for childbirth education. Here’s a brief list:

 Some big takeaways are:

  1. It takes a lot of openness to not tie yourself to a certain birth outcome.
  2. Sometimes the real treasure is looking back to your ancestral roots.
