Jenn says:

I just had a baby and I can't imagine not doing an epidural. The contractions were the worst pain of my life and after getting the epidural, I was able to relax and enjoy the experience. I'm impressed by any woman who can do labor and birth unmedicated.

Hannah Bentson says:

If only you were on the East Coast. You are so calming to me :) I'm a first time expecting mom <3 so i'm soaking up your videos <3

Abigail Hannah says:

I want a natural birth because I have always hated the idea of an epidural injection. I have never liked needles (doesn't stop me from getting tattoos though) and unless I need a C-SECTION, I don't want someone to put a needle into my spine. I also am not a fan of the after effects of an epidural.

Brittany Smith says:

DJ Bailey says:

Catherine The Cool Mom says:

I love the way you throw the word "mama" in the way you speak, it makes me feel all fuzzy and good. I haven't had my baby yet but hearing you call me, the viewer, by the term "mama" is empowering and comforting! I'd add to this video to read Ina May's book guide to natural childbirth, it changed my life ❤

Chenfei Conti says:

Thanks for the tips. I’m not sure if I could remember this much information. But at least I knew what is going to happen so I don’t get panic.

Fatma Moheb says:

Ilona Heiskanen says:

Hey girl! Quick question. What do you mean when you talk about a "natural" birth? Do you mean vaginal or are you using it as a synonym to unmedicated? :)


I love how informative your videos are for new mamas

Fatma Moheb says:

Not all the country's have the education and the pre birth courses

Emanuelle Beaulieu says:
