Clearbirth EP 38: Birth Modality Recommendations

Season 2 | Episode 38
22m | Aug 30, 2023

Join your host Annette Perel, a doula for over 17 years, for The Clearbirth Podcast!

Broken up into segments that reflect the stages of pregnancy including, the First Trimester, Second Trimester, Third Trimester, Labor, and Postpartum, Annette details birth modality recommendations that may be perfect for you.

But first, she switches it up again for the first trimester and recognizes an organization committed to finding out why the U.S. birth mortality rate is high and how implicit bias from health care providers and systemic neglect affects women who are pregnant. 

Next, Annette speaks on working with a client who was committed to having a VBAC (vaginal birth after Cesarean) for her second pregnancy. Annette discusses modalities like holistic care, acupuncture, Pelvic Floor Therapy and more, and encourages listeners to consider these services when preparing for new life. 

Later Annette shouts out Midwives, and ends the episode doing her favorite thing—reading your reviews. Tune in.

This podcast is all about demystifying all things pregnancy, birth, and beyond so that women know they have a choice and agency when it comes to their care and raising their children. It’s also a platform for listeners to voice their questions and tell their stories.
