Manage episode 293819130 series 2904528
In this episode number seven, I got to sit with Ellen Songalia and hear her 3 home birth stories. While home birth wasn’t initially something she ever thought she would do, she realized that it was a great option for her and her family. As a military wife, she was grateful for the consistent care of the same midwife throughout her pregnancy and birth, and for a future birth, she added a doula to her birth team during her husband’s deployment. Ellen shares how grateful she is for the births she was able to have, and I hope that they inspire you to pray and be open to how the Father might lead you through your own birth preparation or walking back through your previous birth stories.
