Birth Stories

Nashville Doula Services is featuring a birth story series. We will share stories that include: home births, hospital and birth center births, inductions, VBACs (vaginal births after cesareans), Cesarean births, natural births, and medicated births.

Birth stories are an important way to both celebrate birth and learn about what to expect in our labor. While no two birth stories are alike, new parents can find wisdom and camaraderie learning from others. And a positive birth experience is not dictated by how the birth unfolds, but rather how the birthing mother receives her baby’s birth story. So although all these birth stories are different, each mother felt empowered and strong by the journey she went through to bring her baby earth-side. We encourage you to read and explore birth stories as a way of preparing for your upcoming birth.
