On today's episode, I have the pleasure of welcoming first-time mother Ashneeta to the show. She will share the transformative journey of bringing her son into the world.

After enduring the heartache of a pregnancy loss, Ash channeled her grief into a commitment to her health, spending the next year working with a naturopath to create the healthiest, most nurturing environment for her future baby.

As Ash recounts her birth, she shares the moment she realised her surges were different from those described in other women's stories. Yet, her mindset remained strong, rooted in the belief that although her journey was unfolding in an unexpected way, her body was perfectly designed to birth. Her trust in herself never wavered.

Ash also takes us through the special moment she knew she had found her doula, describing the invaluable support that carried her through every step of her pregnancy. When fears and questions surfaced, her doula was there, a beacon of calm and reassurance.

This episode is a beautiful, inspiring story of Ash's initiation into motherhood, honouring her rite of passage through birth with love and reverence.
