  • A podcast that will give you information and strength!

    There was so much I gathered from your show and it gave me strength going into my second birth. I can proudly say I just birthed my second baby without one medical intervention at the hospital and it was so empowering and healed some of the trauma from my last experience. I credit this show with helping me feel prepared and empowered for this experience. Thank you, ladies!

  • Empowered

    I’m currently 23 weeks pregnant and thankfully your podcast has empowered me and taught me to advocate for myself. I had to fire my OB after she told me that she will induce me at 38 weeks due to me being 41 and she never asking what my birth plan was. So after my plans for a midwife transfer fell through I let her know I originally wanted a home birth she stated “ your baby will most likely die with a home birth”. I was appalled and so happy I had facts to back up all my choices to my planned n... more

  • One of my favs

    I really love this podcast. I think I’ve listened to most episodes. I recently listened to episode #235, and it gave me some pause. I normally appreciate the balance of discussion about physiological birth and birth with intervention. In that, whatever way is right way for the mom is best. I didn’t find the same balance in this episode. It felt a little skewed and almost shaming to those who choose to take antidepressants, especially expecting moms and or those in their postpartum stretch. I gue... more

  • Embrace knowledge

    You are not alone! It is not too late! At 28 weeks pregnant with my first child I was going to go with the flow. But now almost 10 weeks later I am Down to Birth and postpartum! With the throughly evidenced based insight Cynthia, Trisha and their guests have shared my husband and I are natural birth warriors. My baby will come at the perfect time and we are ready.

  • Real men listen to Down To Birth

    My wife and I will be welcoming our first child soon. As the birthing companion I have felt somewhat detached throughout this process as I am sure many husbands and or companions do. I have also experienced anxiety about the birthing process because it felt abstract and out of our control. My naive self would just think well we will just listen to the doctors and everything will be just fine. Now that I have gone through the class and listened to many episodes of this podcast with my wife, I fee... more
