Jerika Smith joins us this week! She's studying to be a midwife and comes on the podcast to talk about her path to becoming a CPM, attending births, and how home birth and birth centers became an option for so many during the pandemic. We range from talking about midwife legalities drama, to gentle c-sections and hospital shift changes, and the cost barriers to being and having a midwife. Settle in and enjoy!
TW: For those as squeamish as Hanna: Warning for minute 24-25.
The instagram account she mentions is @badassmotherbirther - would recommend for anyone who wants to see real births!
