In this episode, I have a chat with my dear friend Janet Purcell from Birthplace.

Janet is a mother of two, Doula, RN and self-confessed birth nerd (she loooveees all things birth). 

And let me mention this powerhouse woman birthed an almost 5-kilo baby out of her vagina without any assistance!! (go mama). 

We talk about birth comforts in this episode and how you can make your homebirth space more comfortable (including pain management which we reframe into a more positive view). 

Here are some of the comfort measures we talk about in more detail:

  • Acupuncture
  • Acupressure
  • Aromatherapy
  • Tens machine
  • Exercise ball
  • Movement
  • Rebozo
  • Water emersion/ shower
  • Heat pack
  • Food + drink
  • Reassurance
  • Affirmations/ music
  • Distraction 
  • Birth comb
