This week on The Mommy Labor Nurse Podcast I’m happy to share the birth stories of Kat Tepylo Murphy with you guys! Kat reached out to me to share the redemptive, natural labor birth story of her son after a traumatic first birth.

You’ll hear Kat talk about that first traumatic experience and how she struggled with processing her daughter’s birth for a long time – she was so affected she wasn’t sure she could ever have another baby.

But it doesn’t end there – Kat’s second birth was everything she wanted it to be and more! If you know me, you know I love a good redemptive birth story.

In her words, she was determined to make sure that birth didn’t “happen to her” like the first time, and instead, she did everything she could to go into the experience feeling educated and empowered.

Meet your host

Hi there. I'm Liesel!

As a labor and delivery nurse, I've spent countless hours with women who felt anxious — even fearful — about giving birth. I want you to know it doesn't have to be that way for you!

When you know what to expect and have the tools to navigate the experience, you'll feel confident and in control.

I believe you deserve a better birth — no matter how you deliver.
