Their webisodes take away a lot of birthing misconceptions that have been passed on to many frightened women over the years. Joni and Andrea focus on positive thinking and promoting the strength in all women.
Joni and Andrea can agree, many women need to know the truth about natural birth. Scared relatives, lack of education a variety of misconceptions taint those who are thinking of a natural birth.
They do not just film and educate about natural birth but work within the community as well. Joni and Andrea are committed to educating women across the economic spectrum. In the state of Florida, many women are having C -Sections. Though some women must have C Sections, many women in the USA have the right to choose whether or not they have a C-Section. However, does a woman know the full toll a C Section can take on your baby? Joni, Andrea and Gloria are determined to give the proper information of a natural home birth, so women can make informed choices!
Let’s face it, both Joni and Andrea have a certain dynamic together that is great for these websiodes! They are funny, caring and compassionate and they have seen it all.
