Doing It At Home: Our Home Birth Podcast

Doing It At Home is a weekly podcast about home birth and our decision to go from a traditional hospital birth with an OBGYN to a natural birth at home with midwives. This is a raw and honest show that explores homebirth from every angle. We talk about the fears and judgements thrown at you when you choose home birth. We share resources that we found tremendously helpful for understanding our birthing options. We confess the magic and craziness in preparing for pregnancy, home birth, motherhood and fatherhood. We talk about having sex while pregnant and maintaining your connection and intimacy as a couple. We reveal how to stay centered and not lose yourself through pregnancy, and tons more! This show is all about adding an empowered conversation to the topic of home birth and natural birth, while keeping it real, grounded and fun. So strap in and join us as we’re doing it at home!

How can we view our challenges around pregnancy, birth and parenthood as gifts? Take trying situations and circumstances and turn them into lessons of empowerment and gratitude?

This is part of the discussion on the podcast today with our guest Jennifer Griffin. Jennifer has a background in counseling psychology that she has brought into her current work of running her website Spiritual Gift Institute, writing multiple books and being a mother to 4 children.

Jennifer’s first home birth was over 20 years ago, and she remembers craving other people’s stories. So we’re honored to have her in our space and on our platform to be a part of this community sharing empowering stories and resources like her own.

We talk about Jennifer’s experience of her 5 home births, which include one miscarriage at home for her first, and an 11 lb baby in her last birth.

We also get into the topic of hyperemesis gravidarum, the condition of severe nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. If you’re like me, the first time I heard about this condition was when Kate Middleton experienced it in her pregnancy. So there was a lot about it I didn’t understand. Jennifer shares her experience with the complication through multiple pregnancies and its progression and impact on her.

Jennifer also shares her experience of “the magic of midwives” and the inspiration and the thesis of her books - turning challenges into gifts.

It’s an inspiring conversation and one I know you’ll enjoy!
