Johanna is a mother of 2, a doula, hypnobirthing teacher and a pre and postnatal yoga instructor who gave birth in hospital 2 weeks into lockdown. Thanks to her birth work experience she was well prepared, but even so she faced a challenge towards the end of her pregnancy that almost changed her plans completely and could potentially have resulted in a very different outcome. I learned that it is possible to hire a a "kine" who is like a prenatal physiotherapist who is able to accompany you to your birth (in addition to a doula and a midwife) and assist with positioning. As far as I know this is unique to Europe but I would love to hear from you if you have something similar. You will learn so much from listening to Johanna's experience and especially how she embraced the challenges - even when her and her husband were left to labor alone a lot of the time. You can connect with Johanna here  or find her on Facebook
