A lot of women hit dead ends with their doctors during pregnancy. They don’t feel heard or taken seriously. They feel like they can’t stand up to a doctor and say, “That’s not what I want for my birth. What are some other options?”

It’s not about getting aggressive. It’s about being curious!

Lauren Dunaway, PhD in Public Health, got up the courage to leave her doctor for a midwife midway through her pregnancy. When she saw how much they cared, she knew that she was in good hands.

If you’re a rule follower who’s scared to make a change, you’ll walk away from the conversation with courage!
