Paige Rangel’s Birth Center Birth Story

Paige Rangel is the mother of three beautiful babies and lover to her best friend and husband. She loves design, fashion, natural parenting, and generally being creative.  She worked full time in the high fashion bridal and ready-to-wear world of designer Monique Lhuillier until late 2014, when her husband got a job offer in the Phoenix area and they decided as a family to make the move.  Although she loved her career in fashion fiercely, she now gets to pursue the joy of her children and being a stay-home with them full time.

Motherhood changed her life beyond what she ever imagined.  She was one of the first of her friends to have a baby, and although joyous and endlessly fulfilling, she found it overwhelming and isolating at times.  Navigating that first year after her son was born was especially challenging. She shares tidbits about what she has learned so far, as well as her current struggles in parenting on The Love Designed Life in hopes that she can help other mothers out along the way.

In this episode of The Birth Hour, Paige tells the story of her recent sons birth which took place at a birth center in Phoenix. She also briefly discusses her first and second births which took place in Los Angeles, one at the hospital and one in a birth center. Paige was only 4 weeks postpartum with her son Diego when we spoke so the birth story was very fresh in her mind.
