About Us

When you find out you're pregnant, you’re faced with emotions – excitement, happiness and fear, to name a few. And throughout your pregnancy, you’re faced with decisions – natural birth, using pain medication, hospitals, C-sections. But most of us don’t fully understand our options, and human nature pushes us to go with the crowd. And currently, most of the crowd chooses an OB/GYN and subdues their fears with the promise of pain medication. Most women don’t realize that there are other options. The Push Guide Podcast aims to educate you on all childbirth options, and to empower you to make decisions that make you proud to be a mother.
