We've all heard of midwives, home births, water births and birthing centers, but how much do we really know about these options for moms? For us, apparently we know very little, which is why our conversation with Courtney Hasson, Certified Nurse Midwife at The Birth Center of Boulder was so eye-opening. For example, did you know midwives can perform all aspects of female reproductive health from puberty through menopause?
Courtney's calm, open-minded, caring passion for women offered us a ton new insight and knowledge about how and why someone might want to take the birth center route for their birth plan. Even if you're done having kids, this conversation is eye-opening. And, if you're still wondering what plan is right for you, have a listen and learn some amazing facts about midwives!

Shayna and Tracey have been friends since the 8th grade – that’s over 25 years. After college, they each moved to separate coasts for a decade. They were reunited when they decided to leave big city life and settle down with their families in Denver, Colorado and Facebook told them their daughters are 3 weeks apart. After several play dates, some more childbirth, some unsuccessful pumping, and the overwhelming nature of mommy community boards, The Pump and Dump Show was born.
The show launched in 2012 in a bar in Northwest Denver and quickly grew to a bi-monthly, local staple for new moms to have a night out. In 2014, Shayna and Tracey took The Pump and Dump Show on its first national tour, and in September of 2019 The Pump and Dump Show expanded with more casts of real moms who continue to perform every month to audiences nationwide.
