On this episode of The Mommy Labor Nurse Podcast, Laura Rush joins me to share the story of the birth of her son, Tate!
Laura thoroughly enjoyed listening to birth stories throughout her pregnancy, but she often found most birth stories to be “crazy” or with something really unusual happening.
Her own birth was relatively “normal” with no major complications, and she felt compelled to share her story hoping that other mamas would find it encouraging and relatable.
After you listen to Laura’s story, be sure to check out these other positive birth stories from mamas in the MLN community!

About Laura Rush
Laura and her husband, Brett, have been married for 2 years and currently live in Richmond, VA. They welcomed their son, Tate, into the world after almost a year of trying.
Laura enjoyed an easy pregnancy and experienced a relatively uncomplicated delivery. She felt most prepared for birth by listening to others’ birth stories, so she volunteered to share her own in hopes that it will help others feel less anxious.
