Community Birth Story: Processing a Fast Birth with Alisone Bonafos

Community Birth Story: Processing a Fast Birth with Alisone Bonafos

If you could choose between a short, fast labor or a long, slow labor, I’m guessing you would choose short and fast. But a precipitous labor can come with some unexpected complications for both the new parents and baby.

In today’s episode of Yoga|Birth|Babies I speak with Alisone Bonafos who joined our community during her pregnancy as a part of our yoga classes and teacher training.

In addition to sharing her surprising birth story Alisone has fantastic insight about coming through to the other side of birth. She openly shares her experiences after her baby was born and the journey with her partner into parenthood. Alisone’s honesty about some very common struggles as a new parent are something I think many of us can relate to, even though it’s not often spoken about. I think you’re going to get a lot out of this whole conversation!

In this episode you will learn:

  • Learn a bit about Alisone.
  • What Alisone’s pregnancy was like. 
  • Alisone’s birth story.
  • How Alisone is processing her birth experience.
  • Alisone’s postpartum experience so far.
  • One thing Alisone wishes someone had told her about pregnancy, birth or postpartum that she would like to share with our community.
  • One tip/piece of advice she would like to offer new or expectant parents.
