Homebirth Story & Choosing the Right Birth Environment — 059

May 28

During today’s episode, self-proclaimed birth junkie, Yukie McGregor shares the inspiration behind her Dallas Birth Guide and the Birth Community that it created, her primal first birth experience and the relief she felt after talking with a therapist after bouts of postpartum started to creep into the first few months after having her baby.

In this engaging conversation, Yukie details the comical aspects of her homebirth and how motherhood gave her the opportunity, skills, and the light to work on herself and heal herself.  We decided that her birth should inspire a new genre of birth films… comedy!

Yukie’s Birth Guide is designed to empower women during their motherhood journey and to provide all the resources they need to make birth planning decisions based on what will make them feel the most comfortable and supported.  We love her mission and the services she offers; nothing is more important than women feeling empowered in this season of life.
