On today’s show I chat with Emily about her three births.

Her first planned homebirth, through the community midwifery program, unfortunately ended in a somewhat traumatic transfer to hospital. Emily then had to do a lot of work to unpack the fears left behind from that experience for her next birth, which was at home with a private midwife. She went on to have the birth of her dreams that she describes as leaving her on a high for years to come. When she consciously conceived her daughter, she originally had planned to have the same midwife, only to realise midway that she actually didn’t need anyone to birth her baby, and so began her journey to freebirth.
