Birth Myth #1: You Can’t Eat During Labor

I am writing this series of birth myths to try to dispel some of the untruths that the obstetric world has passed off as reality to unsuspecting mothers.

What Client’s Say

From the moment I met Yomy, I knew she was going to be a tremendous doula and a great fit for me. I was having a scheduled c-section with my second child, and she was so supportive. I’ll never forget when she said, ‘A natural birth isn’t exclusive to non-medicated. A natural birth is a birth that is natural to YOU.’ I loved that idea. And I loved her. She was kind, encouraging, thorough, and deeply present. I highly recommend Yomy.

Yomy was totally our saving grace. She was gentle and warm but took control when we really needed her. I wanted to deliver naturally but in a hospital and I felt that she really understood what i wanted and advocated for me. At one point when my labor stopped, she helped with some techniques that helped it get going again. I honestly think i would’ve been a c-section if she hadn’t been there.

I was a nervous wreck. Yehudit helped me be calm enough that I could be present at my son’s birth. I would’ve paid anything to have that help when i did. It was clutch.
