ABOUT THE BIRTH WORDS PODCAST
Birth worker Sara Pixton draws on her backgrounds in applied linguistics and social work to explore the power of words during the childbearing season and how we can all come together to better care for and honor those who give birth.
"This podcast helped me so much as I was preparing for birth. It helped dispel the fear and nervousness I was carrying, and replace that with empowerment and excitement. Sara’s approach to using words to shape your approach/perspective towards birth is so insightful and really does make a difference! I would recommend this not only to birth-givers, but to anyone seeking to understand the connection of how what we say impacts how we think, and how that in turn can shift our paradigm."

"Birth is something that women do--not something that happens to them. The birth-giving woman is the central agent in the ancient drama of life bringing forth new life."
