Åsa Holstein

My name is Åsa Holstein and I am a Swedish midwife, healthcare entrepreneur and an advocate for women's rights. The idea behind "The Positive Birth Story Podcast" was born after meeting many women and seeing the need for us to share empowering and positive stories about birth. We need these stories to help us tap into the superpower that resides in all of us. Having a positive experience from giving birth is not the same as birth always being a smooth sailing. It can be a bumpy road for sure. It is more about pushing through the hardships that contributes to the positive experience. And the people that we surround us we. The people that will help us feel safe, respected and loved.
