The Birth Interview Project consists of 17 simple questions designed to help mothers process their birth story & share it with others. All mothers are invited to take part in this project. Born out of Joy’s desire to help women discover, process and express the  feelings surrounding their birth experiences, The Birth Interview Project strives to offer a platform for mothers and readers alike to share and be heard, to search and to discover, to identify and to heal, and to exhort and remember. The views and opinions expressed here are unique to each woman who takes part in the Birth Interview Project and may not always reflect the values of the blog author.

The Birth Interview Project | Sarah’s Birth Center Transfer, C-Section

The Birth Interview Project consists of 17 simple questions designed to help mothers process their birth story & share it with others. All mothers are invited to take part in this project.

Mother and daughter

I met Sarah through the childbirth classes that she and her husband attended. I will never forget how Sarah’s husband, Glenn, arrived alone to the first class of the six-week course.  I thought it was so sweet that although Sarah wasn’t able to attend, Glenn still chose to come, and not only that, furiously took notes for his wife throughout the evening.  I hoped right then that I could work with them as their doula.  You can imagine how thrilled I was when Sarah and Glenn approached me to serve as their birth doula. It was a deep privilege to witness Sarah labor so beautifully at the birth center and with gracious surrender, after many long hours of labor, transfer to the hospital, to ultimately bravely birth her beautiful daughter on the operating room table.  I think you may find, as you read this interview, that you connect with the gentle richness Sarah’s heart possesses.
