In this final episode of Season 2, we'll hear a theme of gratitude. Laura communicates lots of it in today’s birth story as she shares the story of a well-supported metamorphosis into motherhood, her matrescence. Laura’s story is another pandemic birth story in which she equipped herself and her partner with birth doula support early in pregnancy and then also hired a great postpartum doula to support her for several weeks afterwards. She shares how, while the birth didn’t play out totally as she had hoped, it was still a positive experience largely because she had great support and received respectful care. Then in postpartum, only 9 days after birth, she and her husband start having Covid symptoms and find out he tested positive while their birth doula was visiting them. She describes some details of that challenging time. Finally, Laura shares how her eyes were opened to some of the terrible racial injustices and disparities that exist in our maternal health care system and how she wants to do her part to effect change.
