Steph interviews Sarah Bivens about home births. Both Steph and Elana have had home births and have shared their experiences in past episodes, but wanted to offer another story and insight into the world of home births. Sarah is the co-creator of Doing It At Home, a podcast and community helping parents to feel confident, prepared and excited for home birth. In this episode, Sarah shares her best advice for parents navigating the decision about whether or not to have a homebirth. They talk about how to approach the conversation with your partner, questions to ask providers, trusting your gut when it comes to your birth location, and even ‘must have’ home birth essentials.
Sarah Bivens is the co-creator of Doing It At Home, a podcast and community helping parents to feel confident, prepared and excited for home birth. DIAH started in 2016 when Sarah was pregnant with her first child and switched from a hospital birth to a home birth halfway through the pregnancy. Before becoming pregnant, both Sarah and her husband Matthew worked as life coaches. Taking their previous experiences and marrying it with their awakened passion for home birth, they created the ultimate space for home birth empowerment. DIAH includes a podcast, community, resources and lifestyle programs. Sarah currently lives in Marietta, Georgia with Matthew and their daughter Maya and is pregnant with her second child.
