APPPAH Live: What’s Missing in Modern Day Childbirth Education with Care Messer, Childbirth Educator, CHt, Birth and Postpartum Doula, Erotic Blueprint Coach ™, Author

January 16 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

What’s Missing in Modern Day Childbirth Education

Care discusses how the American maternal healthcare system is a failure by all statistics. Hearing story after story of birth trauma and loss, expecting parents are filled with fear and are in a freeze pattern. But why are parents not thinking for themselves, looking at those numbers and enrolling in out of hospital education? Society has taught us to go to a hospital and they will “fix” us. But birth is not a sickness. Birth doesn’t need to be fixed. Birth is a physiological process that nature doesn’t schedule. Why have we not been taught this? She discusses the struggle as out of hospital childbirth educators, is wanting to prepare families for this beautiful life transition but having to spend the time warning parents of what they are up against to possibly save their life. The curriculum also needs to contain the humanity of birth, connection and the patterns we are shaping in this new baby.
