After developing a robust unmedicated birth plan for her March 6th due date, Amy learned at about 32 weeks that her blood pressure was such that an induction a few weeks early would be very likely. Terrified and disappointed, Amy turned to her doula to re-tool her focus to continue to advocate for a safe and healthy birth for her daughter Penelope in the hospital induction setting.
