What To Expect When…

Time and time again, we have heard stories from mothers that their births didn’t go to plan. Having a baby is the ultimate in relinquishing control. We can have the most thoughtful birth plan and sometimes our babies have other ideas.
TPC has launched this series of interviews with mothers we know and love to hear about their birth experience. What their hopes and expectations were. How it all played out. And what they wished they had known. We hope that these interviews help mothers feel less alone in their experience and more empowered heading into their journey.
