**CORRECTION** We shared some misinformation about Judaism in this episode and one of our listeners, Daci Goldin, was kind enough to point it out. (Thanks, kween!) She sent us an excellent write up explaining why the info we shared misrepresented the Jewish faith (specifically Orthodox Judaism) and what they actually believe and practice in regards to menstruation/bleeding. You can find her full write up linked at the top of the page for episode 93 on our website. --- In this episode, we’re joined by one of our favorite past guests, Monica Toombs (see ep 14 and ep 15 to listen to her...

Dominique Richey is sharing her two birth stories with us this week! Dominique is a mom of two who lives with her family in the Houston, TX area. Both of her children were born in San Diego (her 6yo daughter at a hospital and her 4yo son at home with kween Karly!). Both were unmedicated vaginal deliveries, although they were two very different experiences. The birth of her daughter was long and relatively uneventful (healthy baby born after a few days of labor), but Dominique experienced a lot of push back from the hospital staff. Because she didn’t feel well supported from the hospital during her first birth, she opted for a home birth for baby #2. Her son’s labor also spanned a couple of days and was a very positive experience aside from a pretty significant shoulder dystocia. We hope you enjoy listening to these two awesome birth stories from one badass kween!
