Birth: Not as Bad as Hiking Machu Picchu, with Shelley Wylie
The Birthful Podcast: Summer Birth Stories 2017 #3
We continue with our “Birth Stories” for the summer series! Today’s story comes from Shelley Wylie, who shares how the shower beats the tub, how birth is not as horrendous as the Machu Picchu trail, and how you can absolutely have a lovely birth, even if you have to come undone and regather yourself in the process. Check it out!

What we talked about:
How you don’t birth on the day
Getting into the rhythm at home, and avoiding the clock
Reading between the lines of a polite vaginal exam
Sinking into a “Pillow Castle”
When you hate the tub: try the shower!
Using a TENS machine
Remembering to breathe
The sudden realization that pushing will be required
Wanting to be grounded
Turning the pain into energy
The need to “come undone” so you can regather, renew and readjust
