Finding the perfect Midwife for your birth sounds like a lot of work, but really…. It just takes advocating for you. Know who you are, and what you want, and how your perfect birth situation needs to be. And know that you deserve it. Once you have that figured out, finding your ideal Midwife will be a piece of cake.
I don’t regret having a panic attack, at all. It was a beautiful lesson for me, first of all, to have way more empathy towards others (my patients, friends and strangers) when they are going through a similar experience. Secondly, I am GRATEFUL, that this experience re-affirmed an unwavering commitment that I give myself to RADICAL SELF LOVE, and care.
