This podcast covers a lot about preparing for the birth experience you want. If you listen to this podcast, you are educated about labor and birth. You are learning what your options are, and you know what is evidence-based. You got this! The more you prepare, the better likelihood that you get the birth experience you want, or pretty close to it. I wish I could tell you that everything will go as planned, and it will be magical and perfect. I genuinely hope it does. There will always be unknowns. Many factors can impact your labor and birth, and many of those are out of your control. Should you still plan for the birth you want? Absolutely. Should you also have a backup plan? Yes! This episode covers why you should have a backup plan for your labor and birth, how to prepare for unknowns, and what your backup plan should include.
