In the latest episode of the Positive Birth Story Podcast, Chrissy talks about giving birth to her first child. She learns that textbooks aren’t always right and not all first-time moms have long births.

The whole process was much faster than Chrissy had anticipated and left her with a newfound confidence in herself.

“I’m really really happy to share my story with other people so that they don’t assume that birth has to be scary, or that birth has to be complicated. Sometimes it’s not. And sometimes even if it is complicated, it’s still beautiful.”


The Positive Birth Story Podcast features empowering & positive stories about birth. Swedish midwife Åsa Holstein shares her in-depth knowledge of birth and speaks to brave women who share their personal stories. This is a podcast with women, for women about the super power that resides in all of us.
