Self-Advocacy In Your Healthcare with Emily Edwards

Today I have a guest expert, Emily Edwards of The Good Birth Co. to teach us about self-advocacy in health care. Emily is a Registered Nurse, Doula and Birth Story Expert who helps women heal trauma from their labour and delivery experiences. She is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about women knowing how to self-advocate during medical and health care experiences.

In this episode, we learn about our rights, and explore actions and mindsets needed in order to lay the foundation for a good experience in our health care experiences. Emily lets us know what it means to advocate for yourself in the health system, how to do it, and what to do if your experience isn't what you had expected.

This is a must-listen for all, especially anyone pregnant or with upcoming planned medical care!
