Ep 61: Wild Pregnancy, Wild Freebirth
How do you make strong, powerful decisions…and stand by them?
Dr. Kayla and her husband Anthony, before even beginning to try to conceive, felt they had been called to have a freebirth or unassisted childbirth. Of course, this group is a tiny percent within the tiny percent of moms who give birth at home within the tiny percent of moms who give birth out of hospital. So… about as niche as you can get.
Yet even though it was their first birth, they felt strongly about their decision and knew it was what they were meant to do. Listen in to hear how they approached both their wild pregnancy and wild birth.

So many takeways from this episode. It was such a deep, sweet story, and I love hearing Kayla share her heart. She gave me chills with her sweet connection to her husband and baby.
The biggest takeaway from this episode for me?
Dr. Kayla took her decision to have a wild pregnancy and wild birth seriously. She wasn’t just leaving things up to chance—she did much preparation both mentally, physically and spiritually. She was involved with a group of other women who had chosen the same style of birth as her, and she continued her education and connection with these women as well.
I love women who take full responsibility of their birthing decisions. No matter what those decisions are—be it a hospital, a home, with a room full of people or all alone… stepping into motherhood in an empowered way will change our world.
It is Free
