About Happy Homebirth


Happy Homebirth is dedicated to, and in celebration of, homebirth mothers and those considering this path. This group is quite a small minority in the birth world; we may occasionally feel alone in our decision to give birth to our children at home. We began as a podcast dedicated to encouraging YOU, our community, to band together: We should celebrate our successes, cherish our stories and find other like-minded women to confide in. Not too long ago, women leaned upon one another for childbirth, breastfeeding, and motherhood in general. It cannot be denied: Our culture has shifted over time to viewing birth as a medical emergency. Because of this shift, the art of female to female support and encouragement, especially around birth and motherhood, has degraded. Just as Ina May Gaskin improved birth through not only attendance, but also her sharing of birth stories, the goal of this homebirth podcast is to reestablish the lost legacy of traditional female support.

Katelyn Fusco, here!

I’m a homebirth mother, a childbirth educator, and an experienced homebirth attendant. I’ve seen birth from many angles [literally], and I know the impact this experience can have on you, your baby and your entrance into motherhood for the first, second or fifteenth time. The goal of the Happy Homebirth podcast is to compile the beautiful stories of women around the country and world. These women have shared in the sacredness of giving birth at home, and they hope to help provide a solid foundation of support and success for women journeying into pregnancy and birth. I have been lucky enough to be surrounded by a community of mothers who have helped me along my journey into motherhood, and it’s been a blessing to my life. Because of this support, it is my goal through Happy Homebirth to create this same kind of kindred tribe that transcends location.

But Positive Birth Stories are Merely the Beginning (of the story?!)
