The Birthful Podcast

Talking to maternity pros to inform you intuition

You know why I decided to do this pocast? The short answer is YOU. YOU – my expecting or new mom friend- are the reason this podcast exists. And also because there are some really amazing and passionate birth professionals out there with tons of great information that you should know about.

Why inform?

Women get bombarded with all sorts of advice on maternity: a lot of it unsolicited, and often outdated or just plain incorrect. In the Birthful Podcast, I’ll be talking with pregnancy, birth and postpartum experts to distill that information down to the relevant stuff. Think of us as your own specialized team of birth pros!

We know that being pregnant can be tough.

That being a mom can be hard.

That having a baby can be exhausting.

We hope to make it all easier, by giving you tried and tested tips and tools that you can use. From “laid-back” breastfeeding to safer bed-sharing, circumcision to VBACs, we’ll give you well-researched, evidence-based information so you can make the choices that best fit your family.

What about your intuition?

Just because we’re birth pros, it doesn’t mean that we have the perfect answers. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all Truth – with capital T. Circumstances happen. Everyone’s experience is different and you have to find the answer that best fits your particular situation. That’s where your intuition comes in. I encourage you to take the information we present, and run it through your critical filters. I believe you are ultimately responsible for your body and your children, and are capable of making the choices that are right for you. We’re just here to help make the process a whole lot easier.

Hi Adriana,
I love your podcast. It is one of my top recommendations for my doula clients and one of my favorite resources for staying in touch with top thinkers in birth and early parenting. Thank you for all you do.I realize your summer birth stories are done, but I wanted to propose a birth story that would be fun to listen to. Last week I delivered my client’s baby in the car! It is a lot of parents’ worst fear, but it was a peaceful joyous birth and all was well — no stitches for mom, and baby was born healthy and pink. You can read the story on my website (, and click on my blog. The story is called “wild ride” and I also wrote “7 lessons learned from a car birth” for my doula friends.

Wow Tara! What a story! That’s a fabulous birth. 🙂 One of my first births was also a car baby, and all I remembered from advice given by other doulas was “when babies are coming that fast, there’s rarely anything wrong with them.” That´s what kept me calm – at least on the outside. Bravo for bringing calm and confidence to that birth, even at 45 mph! I love your “7 lessons learned…” and the foresight you had to trust your intuition and get in the car with them. Congrats to all of you, and thanks for sharing!
