#68: Advocating For Your Birth In A Broken System

 July 15, 2021

 

If you know me at all, you know that I am super passionate about helping new moms feel prepared for what’s to come before labor. This idea of preparation is one that needs to be kept in mind all throughout pregnancy, not just at a certain point.

 

And in this episode, I’m giving you a heavy dose of preparation! Are you ready??

 

I’m talking with Hehe Stewart, the Founder of Tranquility by HeHe Maternity Concierge, the creator of The Birth Lounge, and the host of The Birth Lounge Podcast. 

 

HeHe helps women prepare for childbirth with research-backed education and expert support to have a confident birth experience while feeling informed and in control of labor (without fear or coercion). 

 

Together, we talked about how new moms can advocate for themselves and their birth in a broken healthcare system. Hehe sheds light on the shifts we’re seeing in medicine, ways our system can improve, tips for women in their search for the right healthcare provider, and more!

 

My key takeaways from our talk are:

  1. Look at your options! Your insurance shouldn’t dictate your birth option.

  2. Advocate for yourself! Learn more about informed consent and informed refusal.

  3. You are allowed to say NO!

 

The system may be messy, but armed with the right tools and knowledge, you can avoid a lot of misinformation and take control of the birth experience you’ve always wanted!

Remember that I’ll be LIVE inside the New Mom Lounge, Friday at 8 AM PST.
Bring your questions and I’ll be there to answer them!
