Creating A Respectful and Collaborative Relationship With Your Care Providers & Hospital Staff with Chloe Lubell

Creating A Respectful and Collaborative Relationship With Your Care Providers & Hospital Staff with Chloe Lubell

Birthing people sometimes feel like they are going into a hospital setting needing to have their guard up to defend their birth preferences against the enemy- the medical institution.

In this episode of Yoga|Birth|Babies, I speak with former hospital and now home birth midwife, Chloë Lubell about how to create a respectful, collaborative and balanced relationship with your care provider and hospital staff. Chloë also discusses the rights of the birthing and the importance of informed consent. 

In this episode:

  • Learn about Chloë, how she got into birth and midwifery.
  • Chloë explains her approach to midwifery and how she cultivates trusting relationships with her clients. 
  • Why many pregnant people feel like they need to defend their birth preference against hospital protocols. 
  • How to create a more trusting and collaborative relationship between the birthing person, the institution, and care provider.
  • How pregnant people can have their voice heard without being labeled “the difficult person”.  
  • The rights of a birthing person if they feel they are not being heard, respected or if things are being done without consent.
  • Chloë discusses the importance of patients voicing their needs and her role as a hospital employee and her role as birthkeeper.
  • Reasons Chloë chose to leave working in a hospital and move to a home birth midwifery practice. 
  • A tip or piece of advice Chloë has for new/expectant parents.
  • Where you can find Chloë’s work.
