Kellie Edson is an (almost) certified childbirth educator, mom of one baby girl and host of the biweekly Postpartum Podcast for new moms.  She was planning a hospital birth with an OBGYN until 35 weeks pregnant when she switched doctors so she could give birth at a hospital that had better outcomes for mom’s who want a natural birth. It also had a significantly lower C section rate.

Kellie ended up having a wonderful nurse that stayed with her throughout her birth and she alternated between laboring in the birth tub and on the toilet. Listen to all of the details of her birth story in her own words.
