  • I would also find out what the hospital will provide (diapers, pads, mesh underwear, lanolin cream, nipple pads, etc.). Most hospitals provide a lot, but not all.

  • I just found your channel and your content is incredible! Dumb YouTube algorithm. I’m almost 30 weeks pregnant and all of your videos cover all of my questions. This is the exact type of content I’ve been needing!

  • Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge baby loss month. I myself suffered a miscarriage 3 yrs ago. I am 21 weeks pregnant 2mrw with 1st baby (high risk pregnancy) and on bedrest. On progesterone & progressing in our favor �� but still risk for preterm labor. Now wondering what to expect. Can you please make a video on that.

  • Here are the questions I had written down

    Is low lighting an option?
    What positions am I allowed to push in?
    Do you provide birth balls? Squatting bars?
    Can I eat and drink during labor?
    How many medical staff members will be present, assuming there are no complications?
    How long can I delay cord cutting?

  • If you feel like you may be stressed or triggered by the discussion of pregnancy and infant loss, please skip to 3:50 for the video. ��

  • My hospital was 1 person, regardless of vaginal or c-section (but 0 for me, since I had to go under general anesthesia) and a limit of 2 (plus your partner) in postpartum.

  • I have watched your channel for over a year now during my first pregnancy that ended in my babygirl becoming an angel at full term because of a cord accident and now I watch through our rainbow pregnancy with our second babygirl I am currently 23 weeks pregnant and I just want to thank you so so much for acknowledging us angel mamas and for touching on this topic! I absolutely love your channel and always get super excited when you post! Thanks so much for all you do! ����

  • I lost my first baby at 7 weeks back in October. I appreciate the love and kindness for what you did for that organization. Its been pretty hard but now I’m 15 weeks pregnant with a baby girl.

  • I have a question about USA hospitals.

    Are you forced to follow the hospitals policies? Eg: 20min monitoring?

    I live in NZ and it was heavily suggested I have continued monitoring however I can’t stand the belts and opted out of this. Allowed a doppler every 10 minutes instead.

    Over here every choice is actually the mothers (I declined an elective section and an induction before having my VBAC at 41 weeks). Do the hospitals/doctors just decided regardless in the USA?
