Tamsyn's story

Second baby, complications in pregnancy, induction of labour

Season 1, episode 2
57 min / Published

Here is the lovely Tamsyn's story about the arrival of her second baby. She graciously shares with us details of her pregnancy this time around, which was very different to her first. She experienced bleeding and was diagnosed with gestational diabetes which meant her planned home birth changed to a hospital induction. 

Tamsyn reflects on her experience positively, and she was particularly motivated to record this episode because she struggled to find positive induction stories herself when she was pregnant.

I love the way that Tamsyn's instincts guided her throughout. In her own words: “Find what’s comfortable for you and don’t worry if that doesn’t fit in with how they wanted you to be”.
