Send me a text if you have any questions or comments!Imagine walking into labor and delivery prepared with the knowledge and confidence to advocate for the birth experience you've envisioned. That's exactly what HeHe Stewart, from Tranquility by HeHe and The Birth Lounge, is here to talk about. We talk about ways to turn the often overwhelming task of birth planning into a strategic, thoughtful process, giving you the upper hand in navigating your unique situation.Crafting a birth plan isn't just about putting preferences on paper—it's a vital exercise in critical thinking and assertive communication with your care providers. In our conversation, we discuss the misconceptions surrounding birth plans and highlight their role in achieving a satisfying birth experience. Starting these conversations early in prenatal care can significantly influence the labor process, helping to maintain autonomy and minimize unnecessary medical interventions. We also dive into effective communication and focus on fostering a collaborative environment with your healthcare team, which can lead to a less stressful birth experience.HeHe and I also talk about preparation for a low-intervention birth within a system that often leans towards medicalized birthing practices. We apply many of the concepts in this episode to VBAC specific situations including comparing the difference between VBAC tolerant and truly VBAC supportive providers.After listening to this episode you'll be ready with the tools needed to clearly communicate your wishes and navigate the birth process with your team, ensuring your voice is heard every step of the way.Connect with HeHe:https://www.tranquilitybyhehe.com/https://www.thebirthlounge.com/https://www.instagram.com/tranquilitybyhehehttps://www.thebirthlounge.com/DadDaze-freebieSupport the Show.Download the First 3 Steps to VBAC Guide: https://www.thehannahgill.com/firststepsDownload the Doula VBAC and Repeat Cesarean Guide: https://www.thehannahgill.com/newdoulatips --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/hannah-g84/message
