"just hop on the bed"

"I'll be back in 10 mins to monitor baby"

"I can't hear baby well so we'll just pop on this CTG"...

They're common occurrences in a hospital birth, but even the most well prepared birther can have their birth re-railed by seemingly innocuous circumstances. I chat to doula Georgie about the common things that can derail your plans for a vaginal birth if you're planning to birth in hospital.

Georgie is doula in Oxfordshire, who home educates he rtwo older children and has a new baby. She fell into being a doula because she loves information sharing, and discussing both evidence and intuition about pregnancy, birth, post partum and parenting with families.
