Informed Pregnancy+ is a streaming platform dedicated to all things pregnancy, postpartum and parenting from award-winning, pregnancy-focused chiropractor and host of The Informed Pregnancy Podcast, Dr. Elliot Berlin, DC.
Anne joins us with her new baby and her midwife Blyss Young to discuss the final weeks of her pregnancy. After telling her doctor she wanted to attempt a home birth they refused to treat her and she was tasked to find another doctor at 36 weeks pregnant.
Nearly 42 weeks into her pregnancy Anne's labor starts, but twelve hours in the contractions have not picked up much. Anne ponders what to do next with guidance and support from her midwife, Blyss Young.
15 hours into labor Anne has only progressed to 3 cm as contractions persist every 10 minutes. As the hours pass, Anne draws upon the memory of her husband surviving a gunshot wound for strength and courage.
