SHOWNOTES:


Are you considering having a homebirth or maybe it is something you are for sure you don’t want to do but are still curious why some women would choose this? This episode I did with Katelyn Fusco from Happy Homebirth Podcast is one you won’t want to miss out on! We talk about the importance of community, informed decision making and mindset. All of these things can impact planning for your homebirth! Katelyn is a homebirth advocate, and the creator of both Happy Homebirth Podcast, and her signature childbirth education program Happy Homebirth Academy. As a student midwife and homebirth mother herself, she's dedicated to sharing this option with others and is just super fun to talk to!


3 Pillars of a Homebirth

  1. Support

  2. Mindset

  3. Informed Decision

**If you're planning on having a physiological birth, maybe homebirth would be a good option.


Support

1% of the US population is having a homebirth, find your community and get some support. You can relate and talk to them about the ins and outs of homebirth and everything that comes with it.


Partner support is so important! It's helpful with the partner is confident as well and you are able to enjoy the bonding experience together.


Midwife/Doula support. Ask the right questions. Make sure you're on the right page. Open dialog is important when choosing your team.
