Kimberly Sherman shares the birth story of her twin boys. It's crazy to me that this was the first time that I actually heard a vaginal twin birth story. I know there are plenty of women who give birth to their twins vaginally but I just hadn't met one yet, so this was a really special conversation to me.

Kimberly preparation so well for her boys' birth and went into the experience knowing the type of birth that she wanted, and was a great advocate for herself. I'm so excited for you all to hear her story!

Kimberly also shares some amazing resources in her episode and even emailed me with a few more after we talked so please take the time to check out the ones that are applicable to you.

So quickly in fact that by the time Paige was offered an epidural it was not really worth it to her. She trusted her body and decided not to interfere with the track that she was already on.

Shalome Doran shares the stories of her three births. The first was a highly medicalized hospital birth, and the second two were homebirths, one of which was actually an orgasmic birth!

Shalome wants to live in a world where women approach their births with excitement and awe. A highly-medicalised hospital birth and 2 sensational home births taught her that a little preparation can make ALL the difference, and that you can feel like a total Rockstar when you birth, regardless of how you birth. Shalome encourages pregnant mamas to replace their fears of pain with the insights and self-belief to roar their babies out – by creating their own informed, empowered and amazing birth experiences.
