Ep 232: A Primal First Time Homebirth with Sara Middleton

First births: You don’t know what’s going on with your body, they’re long, and mothers enter them feeling uncertain and needing reassurance…. right?
This week we’re speaking to Sara, who lives in Travelers Rest, South Carolina with her husband Rob, their first child and son, Charlie, and their two big all american mutts, Captain and Bucky. Sara and her husband Rob strive to live a gospel-centered and holistic/ancestral lifestyle to create the best and safest environment for their children to learn and thrive. Homebirth was their Plan A and Charlie’s birth Story wasn’t exactly what Sara envisioned, it was BETTER and one of the best and most intimate memories she and Rob will ever share together.
Episode Roundup:

  1. Just because it’s your first birth does not mean that it’s going to be long, that you’re going to feel uncertain and need reassurance and that you don’t know what to do. Sara walked into birth with confidence. Did she expect to give birth to her baby in the closet? No. But did her body know exactly what it was doing? Absolutely. Sara had admitted that she felt totally confident in her ability to birth her baby, and Rob’s ability to support her. With their lifestyle and their deep trust in the birthing process and the Lord, this experience was so… them.
  2. And postpartum- there is just so much going on during this time. Physically, mentally and emotionally. I love hearing Sara gush about how Rob has been such an incredible support throughout. This is such a special time for your spouse to step up. To shower you with care, to be your hero, and to leave the two of you feeling more drawn together than ever before.
