003: Being Better Prepared For The Pushing Phase of Labor!

003: Being Better Prepared For The Pushing Phase of Labor!

October 17, 2019

Where we have honest conversations with experts in all things health and happiness ranging from pregnancy through menopause… I’m Buffy Stinchfield and I’m on a mission to EMPOWER women to THRIVE instead of being the victim to the unique challenges we face.


As a pelvic health physical therapist and mom of 3, I’ve seen and experienced the struggles that we face as moms and know that we don’t have to do it alone! Join me as we tackle the questions and issues that are core to our experience as women and mothers.

Let’s Be Empowered Together!

“…women are often under prepared for the pushing part of labor, which may contribute to many hours of pushing, preventable tearing, medical interventions or even sometimes a cesarean birth.” — Chantal Traub

In this episode, we are talking all about preparing our bodies for labor… more than just packing our hospital bag. Chantal Traub and I chat about what we’ve observed with our clients and ourselves over the years and how YOU can be better prepared physically for your delivery.

Originally from South Africa, I studied yoga in Los Angeles and after I became certified, I started teaching prenatal yoga in New York. After being invited by some of my students to attend their births, I became certified as both a doula and a childbirth educator.

I was invited by Erica Lyon, owner of Realbirth, New York City’s first comprehensive childbirth education and postpartum center, to teach both Childbirth Education, Newborn Care and Yoga.

I have been assisting expecting families in the New York Metro area since 2003 and draw from my vast experience when teaching and assisting my clients.
