How do we have a powerful birth journey that leaves us empowered? Are you ready to allow yourself to experience pleasure in birth?
In this episode, we are joined by Theresa Lasbrey Peters. She is a Birth and postpartum doula and lactation specialist. Founder of Nnenna Birth. Her mission is to revolutionize the way we give birth in this country. Theresa and Debra discuss how research can help you decide which birthing methods are best for you. Theresa then talks about the actual labor and birth itself – how it went according to plan and that it was easier than she anticipated because of her preparation. In the end, she shares that having this type of dialogue with caregivers can help make childbirth more comfortable for both you and your care provider.

“I love to give birth. I will give birth like an Olympic sport… I would like to adjust and strategize.” – Theresa Lasbrey Peters
“I’d be like, what is everyone talking about this birth thing being hard? They just come out! And as a doula, I know that they don’t just come out, right? You know, It’s mind over matter. And I have, for this specific thing,…this ability to transmute or to experience it as pleasure… A joyful anticipation.” – Theresa Lasbrey Peters
