Preparing for your labor day...

Pregnancy | Birth | Postpartum

Labor is its own journey. You know what? Giving birth is sort of like running a marathon. (We haven’t run a marathon yet, but bear with us for the sake of this analogy.) 

During your pregnancy, you’re doing a lot of self-care and team-building work. That’s part of your training—and so is learning what to expect during labor, how to manage labor pains with or without meds, and how to advocate for yourself while giving birth.

Just think of registered nurse and doula Ebony Harvey as your trainer, coach, and cheering section! Learning about what goes into giving birth will help with your mental preparedness and ability to perform. So when you’re finally ready to enter the hospital or step into the birthing pool, you’ll be calling on all that know-how to help you cross the finish line and meet your baby.
