Since 98% of US births happen in the hospital then there needs to be a better way to get prepared for Hospital Birth and lower the rates of trauma and preventable interventions that many folks want to avoid. Tune in today to hear how Lisa & Marnie, The Hospital Doulas, have put together some programs focused on supporting this vast majority of parents to have amazing birth outcomes beyond the Hospital's minimal standards of "healthy Baby and Mama." In this episode we discuss:

- You don't know what you don't know - and how to see past your blindspots

- The BRAIN acronym and its usefulness in labor and delivery

- Their unique approach to working together with your Hospital team

- The importance of treating your birth team as individual people to help you get treated as an individual person

- A positive birth experience is much more about empowered decision making than external events

- "Routine Care" can be VERY different than "evidenced-based care"

- The true role of us Dads in the delivery room

... and so much more.
