Anne Margolis is a Certified Nurse Midwife, author, and trauma specialist who has been catching babies for over twenty-seven years. Anne began as a nurse, whose first birth experience ended in a fourth degree episiotomy and vacuum delivery after being told she needed an emergency cesarean because her baby's heart rate was decelerating.  She was so "checked out" due to stress and shock that Anne describes her first birth as an out-of-body experience. Her baby was born with normal APGARs, which immediately refuted her doctor's fetal distress diagnosis, and she was left completely traumatized in the aftermath. This led her to develop a program for birth trauma healing and turn to home birth midwifery practice, where she could put the mother at the center of the decision-making process. She joins us today to share stories of obstetric violence and redemptive births alike, and to discuss how women can shift their mindsets and make the commitment to birth their babies on their terms, no matter where they choose to give birth.Instagram: HomesweethomebirthNatural Birth Secrets: An Insiders Guide on How To Give Birth Holistically, Healthfully and Safely, and Love the Experience!

INDUCTION OF LABOUR With Professor Hannah Dahlen

So many pregnant women are met with conversations surrounding induction during pregnancy and it can be extremely confronting and overwhelming. As the rates of induction continue to increase with little to no effect on infant and maternal morbidity and mortality rates, we do need to question whether all these inductions are actually necessary.If you're finding it difficult or confusing to navigate conversations with your care provider surrounding induction, if you're after some more information, and particularly if you want to know what the evidence says about induction of labour, then this is absolutely the podcast for you. Midwife Em is joined by the incredibly experienced and knowledgable Professor Hannah Dahlen as they discuss:Does induction really hurt more?How is induction different from spontaneous or "natural labour"?Does it increase or decrease the chance of a Caesarean section?How to avoid unnecessary induction.Some practical tips and questions to ask regarding induction discussion with your midwife or doctor.What does the evidence actually say regarding inductions?Hannah also gives us a great insight into some of her research findings published in 2021 (see below) which looked at outcomes for low-risk first time mothers, including whether inductions impacted rates of Caesarean sections, postpartum haemorrhage, episiotomies, vacuum/forceps births, third/fourth degree tears, and the rates of vaginal birth. Hannah also touches on the US ARRIVE Trial study, and why the findings may not be exactly as they seem.This is an extremely open and honest conversation about the ever increasing rate of unnecessary inductions, though it's also important to note that both Em and Hannah agree that there is a time and place for induction of labour. The key thing is acknowledging the necessity and right for women and their families to be given the opportunity to have open and honest conversations with their care providers, free from coercion and scare tactics, in order to make a decision that is best fore them.If you would like to read more of Hannah's research surrounding induction of labour, here is the link to her incredible study.https://bmjopen.bmj.com/content/11/6/e047040Dahlen HG, Thornton C, Downe S, et alIntrapartum interventions and outcomes for women and children following induction of labour at term in uncomplicated pregnancies: a 16-year population-based linked data studyBMJ Open 2021;11:e047040. doi: 10.1136/bmjopen-2020-047040.You can also find Hannah on instagram at @hannah.dahlen.If you want to hear more from Em or want to support the podcast head to:Instagram @midwife_em and @welcometo.thewombLink Tree https://linktr.ee/midwife_emBuy Em a Cuppa https://www.buymeacoffee.com/midwifeem

Partner support during the postpartum period is one topic we don't see discussed often. Yet, for the partner, having a baby and learning to parent is an equally transformative experience. Partners experience the birth in a different way than the birthing person. They can experience worry, feelings of helplessness, and even experience vicarious trauma. Partners will typically self-sacrifice to support the birthing person. This is often where the need for more focused support can begin. Sacrificing their own needs to support the birthing person. Setting their need for rest and nourishment aside. As postpartum doulas coming into this dynamic requires assessment skills. What does this partner need most at this point? Where are they struggling? Where are they excelling, and how can we validate and encourage them? Come join us as we discuss the many considerations in how to support partners during the postpartum period.

You've just found out you're pregnant, what do you do first? What are the main differences between private care vs. public care in pregnancy? What does it mean if you hold private health insurance but you're in a public hospital? Why would you do that? What's the ballpark figure on public vs private? Does private health insurance cover outpatient care? How to go about choosing a private obstetrician that's right for you? If you're considered moderate to high risk, is it better to go with private care? Is it true that private doctors also deliver at public hospitals? What is midwifery group practice (MGP)? And how do you get a place in one? If it's not indicated for medical reasons, is an elective cesarian an option in public care? If you are wanting a v-back is there a certain route that is best? Where does a doula fit into the birthing room and are they generally “allowed” in all births? Where does a private midwife fit in if you are birthing in a private hospital?

It seems like the perfect mesh, doula skills paired with photography skills equals the perfect match. But can a doula be both at the same time?

In today's episode I chat to midwife and mum, Luka @boobtofood for the second time. You can listen to Luka''s first two birth stories in episode 140 but today she takes us through her third birth which was an unassisted homebirth. She talks at length about her past birth challenges and the way she was feeling in the days leading up to this birth as well as the anxiety and concerns that naturally creep in as you approach 42 weeks. It may be a short birth story but it's also full of midwifery and motherhood wisdom.

“When Rahab ties the scarlet cord on Jericho, her destiny – and that of her city – is sealed. Israel breaks out against their brethren, and takes the land. The Promised Land has been entered in earnest, and God's Kingdom is born on Earth. A Kingdom dedicated to Heavenly principles and practices, yet which is owned and populated entirely by humans. This Kingdom will fail, and fall, but in so doing will provide the necessary education that we can only be saved by grace through faith, just as Rahab was (Jam 2:25).”

On today's podcast, we're going to talk with Melek Öz about vaginal birth after Cesarean (VBAC), advocacy, and becoming a home birth midwife! Content note: Mention of weight loss and racism. Melek Öz (she/her) is a home birth midwife living with her family in South Austin, Texas. She moved to Austin in 2001 to attend the University of Texas, where she completed both her undergraduate studies and law school before transitioning to birth work. Melek has been active in birth advocacy for more than a decade throughout her childbearing years and now as a home birth midwife. With her first pregnancy, Melek was told by her OB that her pelvis was "too small." She was pressured into an early induction that turned into a preventable Cesarean. Fresh out of surgery, Melek's OB told her, "Now that you've had one Cesarean, all your babies will have to be born by Cesarean." In this podcast episode, Melek goes on to share her subsequent birth stories, in which she had a CBAC (Cesarean Birth after Cesarean) under general anesthesia, as well as a vaginal birth after 2 C-sections (VBA2C). Midwifery care helped her have "a really joyous and an incredible experience, and I'm lucky that I had all 3 experiences that I did, because it helped kind of round out and balance my views on birth." Melek went on to pursue a career as a doula and eventually a home birth midwife! In this episode, we talk about the power of midwifery care, unpacking racism/classism and how it affects midwifery students, and how we can advocate for VBAC access in our communities. She also gives great tips for people who are considering a VBAC or thinking about going into midwifery!
