Episode 4: RHEA
39-year-old first-time mother Rhea planned a birth center birth because she was not comfortable with the idea of laboring at home in her apartment with neighbors in close proximity. As a performer and back up singer for Pharrell Williams, she assumed it would be her natural instinct to be vocal in coping with the contractions. Ironically, she was completely silent during labor, surprising herself and her midwife. We start our conversation with how she first became introduced to the choices around childbirth.
