On today's podcast, we're going to talk with board-certified labor nurse and creator of the Birth Nurse, Mandy Irby, about trauma-informed childbirth education.
Mandy Irby (she/her) is a board-certified labor nurse with 13 years of experience, supporting survivors of assault and trauma through pregnancy, birth planning, and at their bedside during childbirth and pregnancy loss. After her own birth trauma, Mandy quickly learned that the birth care system is not centered on human rights, patient choice, and the individual experience.
In 2020, Mandy made education her full-time career as she now teaches and supports parents and nurses on how to improve centering one’s voice, choice, and physiology in birth. It's Mandy's mission to change the birth culture so that it's parent-centered, trauma-informed, and safe for all.
Content warning: We will mention birth trauma, childbirth, assault, obstetric violence, fear-mongering, and perinatal loss.
