Let me ask you a question: can you relate to any of these birth challenges?

  • Doctors "diagnosed" you as infertile
  • You're a cancer survivor and worry about birth complications
  • You planned a birth at a midwife center and hope for an unmedicated experience

If there's one speed bump that most of us Moms-to-be experience it's dealing with birth expectations. Ali Shapiro is back on the podcast to tell her birth story and remind you that you have the power to choose how you want your birth to go and accept it (whether it goes to plan or not). You do have rights and it's important to be aware. Click here to listen to Ali's episode #52: How to Use Stress to Up-Level Your Fertility.
