Why I am here and who I am:
Hey mama, I am Trish— AKA Labor Nurse Mama. I am a labor and delivery nurse with over 15 years of high-risk OB experience. I am also a mama to 7 kids and have given birth to 6. This means I am quite familiar with the postpartum period and how to navigate it. I am the online birth class educator for Calm Labor Confident Birth and The VBAC Lab birth classes and the mama expert inside our Calm Mama Society, a pregnancy & postpartum membership community! I am passionate about your birth and motherhood journey! You can find me over on IG teaching over 230k mamas daily. I am passionate about your birth and motherhood journey!

I highly recommend taking a class. Be sure to be on the lookout for my class which is launching soon.
If you are nearing labor or wanting a more personal experience, then check out my Labor Prep Consultation, where we “meet” virtually or live (if in Nashville) and we do a hardcore labor prep, one-hour talk.
Probably one of my most favorite books for pregnant women to read. Ina May connects the power of the woman's body with the experience of birth. It gets a little strange at times, but it's well worth the read.
Babies Are Born, Not Delivered. The title alone is worth pondering. A fellow labor nurse, a blogger, suggested this book to our group and I loved it. It is written by a Nurse researcher, who had a traumatic birth experience. After her birth, she began to use her skills to research why so many women are left feeling traumatized after birth. One of the best books for pregnant women to read.
Comment below and let me know which books you recommend. As always, I love to hear from you guys!
