** TOP 1.5% of Podcasts in the World ** Are you a Christian mom who is pregnant and you feel out of control in your prenatal care -- like you have no voice and no say in how things go? Are you yearning to bring God back into your time of birth? Do you feel unsupported and alone in this early motherhood journey? Do you want to find your voice to bring you the kind of care you’ve been dreaming of having? IT IS POSSIBLE to reclaim your pregnancy and postpartum so you can have the peace and joy God intended you to have during this beautiful time of life. This show is going to be an answer to the prayer you’ve had in your heart to find a better way. Hey mama! I’m Lori Morris, a certified nurse-midwife and a mama of three babies born on my terms in the water outside of the hospital, naturally. I’ve got over 20 years of experience in this broken medicalized world of childbirth. I’ve attended hundreds of births as a nurse and later as a certified nurse-midwife in the hospital, in birth centers, and (my own) at home. I know how all sides of maternity care and I am here to help Christian moms navigate this road with joy, calm, and clarity. Inside this podcast, I will teach you: --> How to trust God with your pregnancy and birth -- > How to find and use your voice in your pregnancy care --> How to prepare for birth and rock it on your terms (homebirth, birth center birth, or hospital birth) -- > How to have a natural birth if that is what you choose --> How to thrive during postpartum and breastfeeding I can’t wait to help YOU break free from the grips of a broken medical system that has stripped the beauty and joy from what God made perfect. That doesn’t mean you can’t use the medical system, but we will work together to put it back in its proper place. You are more than a prenatal test result and your baby is more than a grapefruit on a pregnancy app! I give you permission to RELAX and ENJOY this time of life. So if you’re ready to break away from the conventional to discover God’s beautiful plan for this fleeting time of life, go fill up that water bottle or grab some decaf and get ready. I’m about to show you how to reclaim your prenatal period, your childbirth, and your postpartum time as you become a woman and mother truly made in the image of God. YOU CAN DO THIS! He made you for this and I’m going to help you get there.

If you're worried about what you'll do if you change your mind in the middle of labor and decide you want to go to the hospital, this episode is for you.  Transfers seem very scary when you're planning a home birth or a free birth, so demystifying what a transfer looks like can help decrease anxiety and worry, so that's what we're doing in this episode!

Show Notes:

We’ve touched on this before in another episode, but with our focus this past month on home birth, I wanted to spend some time looking more in depth at what comes with the global fee most midwives charge so you can appreciate the immense value that a home birth midwife brings.  I also wanted to look at potential long term costs that will far exceed the midwife’s fee.

SHOW NOTES:

I've been seeing a lot about free birth on social media and I've had moms ask me what my opinion is about whether it is a safe option or something to be avoided, so I decided it was time to do an episode on it.  It is a very interesting topic and it is certainly not new. We look at the reality of unattended birth in this episode and think about whether it might be a good option for you.

Last week we took a look at home birth together.  Today, we’ll look at hospital birth together.  Not much more to say than that, other than to say if you haven’t listened to episode 95 yet, go do that first, then come back and listen to this episode so you can get the background.

As a midwife who has worked in the hospital and out of the hospital to attend births, and earlier as a labor & delivery (L...

Everything that is new to you seems scary.  Familiarity is what makes things comfortable and less scary.  This is true for many things and home birth is no different.  I get messages from listeners saying they would love to have a birth at home but their husband isn’t comfortable or maybe they’re scared to do it.  So I want to talk today about whether home birth is scary or if maybe we’re just scared of what you don’t...

When you want to have a homebirth but your husband or family isn't on board, it can be a very stressful and frustrating for everybody involved.  They love you dearly and the lies of the world can have them believing that home birth is dangerous and reckless.  Often with the right information, they will change their perspective, so this episode dives into this topic.  It is easier for me to talk to them than for you to...

Prenatal nutrition is one of the only things you can truly control during pregnancy.  If you've listened long to my podcast, you know that's something I preach over and over, especially in episodes 23-26 and 88.  In today's episode, I have the pleasure of talking with Lily Nichols, RDN, CDE, author of three books all about this topic.  You can find the links to the books below as well as links to the articles she refe...

It is only natural that many moms are afraid of tearing "down there" during birth.  Perineal tears (aka perineal lacerations) seem pretty scary, but the best way to deal with fear is by getting the information so you can think about it more rationally.  Yes, tears do happen, but they are rare and the risk that you have one can be reduced by doing some things before and during birth, so today that's what we're talking ...

SHOW NOTES

Kinda like with birth, if you listen to people around you, you probably think that the newborn period is a traumatic time of screaming babies and nobody sleeping much. Babies are either colic or teething or allergic to this or that or won’t sleep at night.  It can sound pretty scary. But what if I told you that all of that is something that is very true to who they are and who they have always...

SHOW NOTES:

Have you noticed this terminology that pretty much everybody uses about birth?  The doctor said I “had to”.  I asked the nurse if I “could”.  They wouldn’t “let me”.  Do you hear that?  There’s a structure here that puts “THEM” above you…..and yet it’s YOUR birth.  YOU hired THEM to be there.  I wanna talk to you today about how a simple change in your mindset can transform the way your birth...

SHOW NOTES:

Today’s episode is all about nutrition because there isn’t much you can control about pregnancy, but what you eat is one of them and we need to be making sure we do our best to give our bodies and our babies the absolute best we can so we can be healthy and strong throughout pregnancy.  This information is also especially useful to moms who are trying to conceive before conception has occurre...

Many of you have struggled since listening to my series on circumcision back in January with knowing how to make sense of the current circumcision situation in our country and how that relates to the Old Testament biblical mandate for circumcision.  I got an email from one of my listeners that shed some new light on the topic that I think will help you, so today I'm sharing with you what she shared with me.  I hope th...

In today's episode, I interview Aly McClain from the Peaceful Homebirth podcast.  Aly shares with us her background as a registered nurse, the story of her traumatic c-section birth with her first baby, her road to healing and recovery, and her beautiful, redeeming home birth she went on to have later.  You will learn about how even those of us in the medical field can fall a victim to the lies and the cascade of interventions, but...

SHOW NOTES:

Are routine prenatal tests a good idea or are they simply another tool of our medicalized maternity system used to derail our birth plans and get us back in line with the standardized care they prefer?  This episode will look at things like routine STD testing (specifically syphilis testing which is called RPR and TPPA), routine gestational diabetes testing, routine ultrasounds, and routine u...

SHOW NOTES:

Pregnant women are not sick.  Pregnant women are NORMAL and they should be treated that way.  But 90% of women choose to see obstetricians for their pregnancies.  Obstetricians are trained surgeons. We can't be surprised when surgeons act like surgeons.  This episode dives into the risks women take when they decide to see an OBGYN for their normal pregnancy.

If you are getting your prenatal care from a traditional practice, it is almost a guarantee that you will be offered an induction, or worse, scared into thinking you need an induction when it's not really true.  This episode will look at 3 of the most common "reasons" (read: lies) that obstetricians or medwives use to scare you into thinking you need an induction so that you can be prepared to stand up for yourself and your birth p...

SHOW NOTES:

There are a lot of lessons we can learn from scripture that are seemingly not about birth, and yet the lessons learned can be applied.  In our evening worship this past Sunday, we talked about something that is not new here.  I’ve told you and warned you before, but I want to show it to you from a different angle so maybe you’ll realize how real it is.
