True Birth

True Birth

True Birth is all about raw honest truths when it comes to labor, delivery, pregnancy and the postpartum period helping women have better births and better birth experiences.

The whole essence of this podcast is we are telling you the way pregnancy and birth really is. We are not sugar coating it and we are not just reading from the book. We are two practicers in the trenches on the labor floor everyday telling you the truth about birth.

We are going to give you the truths as we see them that are not diluted or even mitigated by what the convention of today is. We are giving the truth as the way forward and the way to start thinking about birth.  We'll share stories from the labor room from the professional's perspective. We provide an all-about pregnancy and birth through the eyes of Dr. Yaakov Abdelhak, a NYC metro area Perinatologist, Maternal Fetal Medicine Doctor and his trusty side kick Certified Nurse Midwife Kristin Mallon.
