Our own Nikki Reeves, happened to be teaching a childbirth class at Emory- Decatur hospital when she found herself giving a live demo on PROM, commonly known as, premature rupture of membranes. It seems as so many babies love to do, her plans for Easter Sunday would be crashed. But, before we move forward and exchange the Stork with the Easter Bunny, let's go backward to what led up to this special day. Nikki was selected as a YBH candidate to train in our elite Doula Appre
Readers, meet Melody of Monroe, North Carolina and be encouraged. She just “gave birth” to her first child on Friday, April 19, 2019. I emphasize giving birth, because SHE put in the work necessary to bring forth life. Even though she had a hospital birth, as so many first time moms do, she did not have her baby delivered from her body by a doctor. Melody and her husband, Wilson had educated, trained and prepared for this very day for 9 months. She knew what to expect and

Second, the husband coach, Wes unknowingly helped write his own birth story. Normally, I write the birth story from the perspective of Doula, in combination with sharing answers to questions I ask the couple, along with educational information that applies, as to better prepare other couple'

I also met Jorge within my first year of moving to Charlotte and later fell in love and married all shortly after completing my Culinary Degree. A couple of months after marrying, with the support of my husband, together, we were preparing to move for a one in a lifetime career opportunity to Augusta, Georgia, home of the M
When I first spoke to Erik and Emma over the phone, we had a lengthy telephone consultation in which they picked my brain on VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) and the how to's of being successful. They wanted to explore other options than simply scheduling a repeat c-section. Her first labor she experienced early contractions, but a belly birth followed, because it was found her first baby was in a breech position at 34 weeks. Her doctors did not birth vaginal breech. Al
This wasn't Alice & Forrest Comartos' first rodeo, but being extremely busy business owners and parents of two other children, her mama brain seemed to forget just about everything she had learned in her Bradley Method® all those years ago. It happens! I used a pelvis from her last birth center appointment (had Alice hold it up herself) to demonstrate the opening the baby has to escape and why I needed her up and active to bring forth positive changes, especially as a tiny
Meet Kate Holbrook! Photographed in the clouds, just 3 days prior to giving birth. She successfully climbed the tallest mountain in the state, full-term and in sandals, I might add. Since our YBH blog has readers from various parts of the world, let me be a little more descriptive. For those of you not familiar, Brasstown Bald is the highest point in the U.S. state of Georgia. Located in northeast Georgia, the mountain at the highest peak is, 4,783 feet above sea level. It
