Episode 5 of the podcast is now LIVE! Click on the link in my bio to listen, or search for "My Positive Birth" on any of your favourite podcast distributors.

This week I am joined by wonderful Ella, who talks us through the birth of her second baby, which was a vaginal birth after Caesarean (VBAC).

Ella talks us through her preparation for the birth, support she received along the way and in her own words “I balanced the risks that I knew about with what my body and mind was telling me… which was… you can have a safe, natural birth”.

I just love the way Ella talks about her labour, she is so matter of fact, there is no hint of drama or panic. She just... well... went and had a baby.

Like many of the journeys on this podcast though, there were plenty of steps that Ella took to help achieve the positive experience she had, and so do have a listen - you will learn a lot that might help you with your own birth.
