What happens when birth doesn’t turn out the way you planned? Today’s story is an example of what it can look like to move through a hospital transfer situation, when it’s the last thing you desired or intended for. Brittni Mitchell shares her birth story of her son Cole. She and her husband Elliot planned for a home birth preconception. They utilized resources like DIAH podcast and “Business of Being Born” documentary to prepare. And guess what - they live close to us and even used the same midwife that we did! Brittni talks about moving through the emotions that came with not getting the birth she originally wanted. From Brittni: “A big take away I had was that it’s ok to grieve the birth I wanted so bad but was impossible.” Things we talk about in this episode: Vegan pregnancy and supporting optimal vitamin and nutrient levels TENS unit Back labor Hospital transfer Epidural and pitocin Attempted vacuum removal Placenta encapsulation Links From The Episode: Hypnobirthing: https://hypnobirthing.com/   Offers From Our Awesome Partners: Splash Blanket: https://splashblanket.com/ - use code DIAH15 for 15% off your order Esembly: https://bit.ly/3eanCSz - use code DIH20 to get 20% off your order Needed: https://bit.ly/2DuMBxP - use code DIAH to get 20% off your order or DIAH100 for $100 off a Complete Plan   More From Doing It At Home: Doing It At Home book on Amazon: https://amzn.to/3vJcPmU DIAH Website: https://www.diahpodcast.com/ DIAH Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/doingitathome/ DIAH YouTube: https://bit.ly/3pzuzQC DIAH Merch: https://bit.ly/3qhwgAe  Give Back to DIAH: https://bit.ly/3qgm4r9 Learn more about your ad choices.
