I signed up for Unmedicated Academy very early in my pregnancy. I was planning an unmedicated homebirth, but I wanted to be sure I had all the information I needed (hospital/home, medicated/unmedicated).
My birth prep included this course, as well as individual research as I chose my birthing team. My birth did not go as planned and when I say that I’m so thankful for Lizzie and this course, I can’t say it enough.
I delivered our baby girl on Thursday, via C-section (plot twist). I labored for 36+ hours at home with my team, when things simply took a turn and required a transfer. I decided to get an epidural so that I could rest and make a rational decision based upon this information the OB team was presenting.
This course allowed me to recognize that my physiological birth just so happened to be a birth that did require medical intervention, however,I made informed decisions and felt autonomous in those choices. Though my experience was not what I envisioned, I’m happy with my decisions and I’m proud of everything I went through to birth our baby. I cannot recommend Lizzie and her course enough.
