12 – The birth of twins Noah and Joey, advocating for yourself in the hospital system, and birthing 8.5kg of baby with Leila Armour from Village for Mama

We are so excited and honoured to share the birth story of twin boys Noah and Joey for the incredible Leila Armour in today’s episode.

Leila is a Postpartum Doula, Holistic Nutrition Consultant and Mother of now three, living in south-east Queensland. She is the author of the postpartum recipe book, Village for Mama – Nourishment for the Fourth Trimester. Leila is dedicated to helping new mothers feel held and supported through nourishing food and a village. She is also clearly a rockstar as you will learn in this episode, and has the most beautiful and honest perspective on her experience, including how her mindset shifted towards hospital birth and interventions.

Kate was literally on the edge of her seat the whole time.

in this podcast we cover:

  • How it felt to find out she was pregnant with twins

  • Leila’s birth plan and how this changed once she realised she was having twins

  • Moments of twin pregnancy, including getting post dates

  • Conversations around induction and the pressure and support she received from her care providers

  • And of course all of the juicy details of how the birth unfolded… which you will have to listen to find out!
