The Kick Pregnancy Podcast

Mar 22, 2021

The phrase "your baby is in distress" can change the course of your baby's birth... and your experience of becoming mama.

This topic is a request from a second time mama, ready to have her second baby but still holding the memory of her first birth.

Remember, we want you to birth the first time like its your second. What does this mean? This means that we get educated! We know second time mamas will listen to this and we invite all first time mamas to do the same. We are here for support and to help with your questions on our socials.

Why did we start this podcast? Well we think there is a barrier for women to get EXPERT pregnancy info that is practical, relatable and easy to understand.

Dr Pat has helped 1000s of women have their babies and through this we know that this kind of information given to a woman at the right time can totally change her experience of pregnancy and birth.
