Professor Deborah Davis joins me today from the University of Canberra and ACT Health to discuss the impact of the environment on birthing women, a topic we must all consider when optimising our body’s response to birth. Even though a woman might consciously feel safe in an environment, her body will tell her otherwise if there are aspects to her environment that cause her to release adrenaline, changing the way labour unfolds. We also delve into the high rates of labour induction and augmentation – and questions to ask your carers when making these decisions, to identify the difference between a medical necessity and a choice. This is a deeply informative episode that will help you to navigate the birth process. Enjoy!
