Candice Gow-Smith's Birth Story

Three weeks after suffering a miscarriage, Candice Gow-Smith becomes pregnant with Evander. It is a pregnancy dominated by a fear of miscarrying again, of wakeful nights worrying that something may go wrong. But as she approaches term, she is finally able to believe that the pregnancy will result in a healthy baby and she starts preparing for the home birth she’d always wanted.

In this episode, we’ll hear Candice tell how she birthed Evander on the bed, in the comfort of her own home, so quickly that her doula and midwife didn’t have time to arrive. There is no panic or fear, just calm and euphoria as her son makes his entrance.

Nyree Wright, midwife and founder of Sage-Femme, is with us in the studio to answer any questions.
