This week on The Mommy Labor Nurse Podcast, I am joined by MLN Community mama, Andrea, where she shared her inspiring natural birth story.
Inside the episode, you’ll hear Andrea talk about the calm and focus she felt during the labor process, which she attributes to all the physical, mental, and educational preparation she did ahead of time.
Andrea tapped into breathing techniques, movement, and mindset to labor at home for the majority of her birth, arriving at the hospital at 7 centimeters and delivering a healthy baby girl!
If you’re interested in birthing without an epidural, this is exactly the kind of positive and inspiring story that you need to hear!

About Andrea Gasser
Andrea Gasser is a wedding and brand photographer located in Wisconsin. She has always known she wanted to be a mother, which led her to researching motherhood long before ever becoming pregnant. After learning more about tracking her cycles naturally, she began to explore natural childbirth.
Once becoming pregnant in April of 2022, Andrea devoted time and energy into planning for an unmedicated birth. Some of her favorite resources were the Mommy Labor Nurse natural childbirth course, Expecting and Empowered pregnancy workouts, and the Christian Hypnobirthing meditation tracks.
Being a first-time mother and not knowing what to expect with labor and childbirth, Andrea planned to go unmedicated but did her best to remain open to whatever needed to happen to keep her and baby safe. On December 30th, Andrea and her husband Cody welcomed their daughter Lorelei June after a completely unmedicated birth. Andrea is excited to share how her preparation kept her in the right mindset during labor and delivery!
Andrea can be found on Instagram @andrea.marie.gasser, and is always open to chatting about pregnancy, labor, motherhood, and fertility!
