Things a labor and delivery nurse needs you to know about labor, delivery, and postpartum

Labor, delivery, and postpartum are filled with a roller coaster of activity and being informed about this process is crucial. I welcome my friend and social media powerhouse, Liesel Teen, who is a labor and delivery nurse and founder of Mommy Labor Nurse to educate you about 5 things she wants you to know about labor, delivery, and postpartum

She joins me to discuss:

  • Fear women have about pooping in the delivery room
  • Tearing during vaginal deliveries
  • C-section misconceptions
  • Just because you want an epidural, timing doesn’t allow it
  • Sizing for babies and vaginal deliveries
