Episode 39. Home Birth for a First Time Mama at Age 40


Kristina Bruce is a first time mother in Toronto Canada who recently gave birth to her first child at age 40 (so Fertile at 40 of her!).⁠

Today on the podcast we talk about not only what conception was like for her (spoiler - it was easy!), but we also discuss what pregnancy was like as well as how her envisioned home birth played out nearly exactly as planned.⁠

At the time of recording Kristina was 5 months postpartum with her daughter and we also talk about the emotional struggles that go with recovering from the birth experience as well as why some ideas about fertility pregnancy and birth after 40 need to be let go of.⁠
