215: HOME BIRTH STORY – Ironman Athlete and First-Time Mama at 40 with Stephanie Dunne
Have you heard the term geriatric pregnancy? (Matthew hadn’t before this interview).
Any pregnancy after the age of 35 is actually technically considered a geriatric pregnancy. But in our conversation today with Stephanie Dunne, we’re shifting that narrative and dropping age as a defining factor in pregnancy and birth.
Stephanie shares her birth story of her son Sebastian with us and makes a very powerful point in her sharing: “We create our own reality.”
This is a great episode for mamas of all ages and birthing philosophies to listen to. We talk about the factors that led to choosing home birth for Stephanie and her husband Jerry, why they waited after 16 years of marriage and Stephanie turning 40 to have a baby, and how they processed the whole experience.
Stephanie trusted her body (being a very active person, a registered dietician and Ironman athlete), prepared her mind and utilized her team and the strong partner that she had in her husband.
