Rhea Dempsey is a childbirth educator, speaker, counselor and birth attendant (doula) with experience at over one thousand births. In this conversation, we discuss reframing the way we think about birth with an emphasis on what Rhea refers to as the 'crises of confidence' among laboring people and how our culture doesn't support us through those moments. Rhea also makes a unique argument for why you need a birth plan. Plus, lots more!
