In this episode, I interview parents Kristin and Zach Crosby, who live in Alabama with their four children. Kristin is a Registered Nurse, and has been a stay at home mom since the birth of their third child. They recently adopted a two year old. Zach is a systems administrator, and runs a locksmith company. They took the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class with EBB Instructor Traci Weafer.

We talk about Kristen’s first two hospital births, and what led her to take a different approach with her third - where she opted for a home birth. We also discuss their journey of self-advocacy in birth, and the importance of making informed decisions.

"Babies Are Not Pizzas: They're Born, Not Delivered!" is available on Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, Kobo, Apple books, and more!

In this latest episode in our series on natural labor induction, I cover the evidence on consuming red raspberry leaf tea during pregnancy.

Can red raspberry leaf tea assist with natural labor induction? How effective is it to prevent a cesarean birth? Have there been any randomized trials on the use of red raspberry leaf for pregnancy or labor induction? What does the evidence say about its effectiveness and safety?

I’ll answer all these questions and more – and share the latest research on this popular herbal tea!
