Episode 14: How to Have a Confident Birth Experience with Megan Hamzawi
Megan knows all things labor and delivery. You will get some great advice and information in this episode to help you have a more confident birth experience.
Megan and her husband high-fived just minutes after their first child was born, and shortly after that, they shared a victory slice of birthday cake. Since then, her enthusiasm and passion for the childbirth process has only grown, and with it, her desire to advocate for improved maternity care nationwide.
In addition to her work as a childbirth educator and birth doula, Megan is also a creative mother of two inquisitive children and the wife of a perpetually stressed PhD student.
In this episode, Megan gets real with us about labor and delivery and what needs to change and how you can go into your birth more confidently!
Some things she talks about:
It’s so important to be educated before your birthing experience. Take a birthing class!
Megan gives some interesting facts as to how the U.S still has a lot of room to grow in how we approach child birth.
How to change your language when you are in the delivery room to receive the care you deserve.
I'm so glad I got Megan on the show! I hope she helps you see that you deserve the best experience when it comes to your births.
