Rachel shares with us an incredible journey through an unplanned cesarean, a less than ideal hospital VBAC, and a more triumphant HBAC! During both of her hospital births, the staff performed procedures on her without asking or without explaining much at all. The lack of informed consent and refusal is truly devastating. You will switch from being appalled  to laughing out loud with Julie and Meagan as you listen to Rachel share the details of her home birth. Someone could literally learn just about everything they need to know in order to have a satisfying birth experience by learning about all the different scenarios she went through. Then, Julie gets on a soap box about what true informed consent looks like according to the AMA (American Medical Association’s) guidelines. We love her story and we know you will, too!
