In this special CALMCAST episode Amy and Nadine speak about what you can do to prepare, no matter what’s going on in the world, how to talk to your partner and birthing team, and how to trust yourself as a capable mama-to-be.
Pregnancy and childbirth can bring its own special type of worry – so much of what is to come is unknown. In fact, in many ways, preparing for birth is a lot like preparing for motherhood: a daily practice of surrendering the need to know and trusting your instincts.

Nadine shares her own postpartum story and why she included a whole section on how to prepare for post-birth in the She Births® course.
