Hollywood has a lot of bad pregnancy expectations to answer for. You know, the sort which ends in a speedy but horrific labour where she’s rushed to the hospital so that she can scream-push a three-month-old baby out of her vagina. Oh, and don’t worry about any lasting effects of any trauma she’s experienced in the hospital because, cut to the next scene, everyone is living happily ever after. So, that’s why in this episode, we’re talking about what it means to have an empowered birth instead. We'll be exploring real stories of preparing for childbirth and who to have on your side, so that you have the most unHollywood like experience possible.
