Mike Gallagher: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Didn't Deserve to Win This Weekend
"And I certainly am sad about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. A lot of people are glad Green Bay lost because of Aaron Rodgers because the left is mad at him because he's speaking out against the Biden administration and the COVID mandates and stuff. So they don't like Aaron Rodgers. I guess pretending that he's not one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. Tom Brady, one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. And face it, if you were watching the game yesterday, you told yourself, Brady's gonna do it again. They were down 27 to three and came roaring back tied it up and I hate to I'll probably get attacked the minute I walk out this door for saying this because this is Tampa Bay, and this is buck's country Tampa Bay didn't deserve to win that game. They just didn't, I mean, I'm sorry. Mistake after mistake, penalty after penalty. But what a weekend

A Troubling Trend Facing the Future of America
"Girls age 27 and 30 living in California. I can attest to the fact that the supply of quality eligible men is in short supply. Not for the lack of offers. My girls are not married. But sure would like to be. Married with kids and WK. Is that what that means? I've never seen that acronym before. I would love for their status to change, but a whole bunch of men do not have the same goals, lack ambition and are looking for either a someone to support them in every sense of the world or be a good time no more. I see that a lot. I see the feminization of the American male, where the woman, the female has to basically babysit the man, you see in this Conor? And it creates super unhappy women and also women have to become masculine, that's what college does is it creates basically tells these women, you should go succeed in the corporate world and order to do so you have to become super masculine, which also means you're going to become miserable. I mean, just the way it is. And some women, you know, end up liking it. Most women don't, honestly, and the entire kind of trajectory that we have is one that unfortunately instills weakness in men and unhappiness in women. So the brookings institution actually wrote about this. They were left wing think tank. And they talked at length about America's electoral future, the coming generational transformation. Says demographics are not destiny, but steady and predictable changes to the electorate play an important role in defining the landscape of American politics. And it talks about here that homeownership is going down. That having children is going down and marriage rates are going down. That inherently creates a more left wing society or a more Democrat society or a socialistic society when you have 33 year old women with college degrees and they're 33 years old and they don't have children and they're not married. What do you expect when all of a sudden there is a political party that comes out and says we can reappropriate the money we can redistribute the money I should say? It's rather appealing. And this is something
Sydney Watson Comments About the Leftist's Fear Porn Campaign Over COVID
"Here It just seems like this ongoing fear porn campaign by left this all over the world here Australia the UK All over the world that this fear porn campaign over coronavirus has been very useful I was scrolling through your social media feed before the show and you had a great tweet You're like listen man I've been living my life for like two years haven't had it yet great whatever but you know I'm just doing my thing You know you guys can live in fear if you want but I've only got one shot at this whole life thing And that's it So I applaud you for doing your thoughts on the whole fear porn thing Well okay so again if we're talking about it in the ugly context there's not a great diversification or Australian media So here you actually have the ability to have the damage you to show You have the ability to have the blaze and all these other platforms Australia's what 27 million people which is around 15 times less the population size of the United States So the diversification of ideas that all these have access to there's not a great deal of them So obviously if you have the majority of the media telling you how horrifying everything is they're going to participate in that And yeah I'm assuming we're in the same boat here where I've just gone to the last two years I personally have been like what am I doing This is so dumb I'm not putting a mask on I'm not going to live in the pod and eat the bugs I'm not doing any of this stuff But I think the problem is that when you have politicians and the media and all these other entities telling you day in and day out how horrifying everything is If you're not someone who's super tuned into what dissenting voices are saying you're probably going to buy into it And I feel bad for those people because there is a lack of capacity and society to think outside of the same old status quo talking points And so I PD people rather than feel mad towards them like I was feeling for a hot second

Arizona Gubernatorial Candidate Kari Lake on How She Got Into Politics
"With us is the FrontRunner for the governor's race in Arizona. Trump endorsed. Yes, indeed. Newcomer to politics Carrie Lake. Thanks for having me. It's so good to be here, Charlie. We have a lot of our listeners that are big fans of yours. Thank you. Hopefully some of them are in Arizona and they're registered to vote. And all across the country and yes in Arizona we have a lot of Arizona listeners as well. And the Arizona governor's race is really one of the top 5 most important races in general. Let alone just governors races. So introduce yourself to our audience, we've been talking to a lot of the Senate candidates, a lot of people have heard of you. You've got the Trump endorsement. Congratulations. Oh my gosh. Love it. So tell us about yourself. I just hung up with president Trump before. That's why I was late. Oh, is that right? You know, when the president calls you you don't just, you know, I can't talk right now. I'm like, Charlie or the president right now? Sorry Charles. You got preference and preference. I'm going to give him a hard time about that one. No, I have been in Arizona for 27 years. I was a journalist here at a fair journalist here covering Arizona for 27 years. And the media started taking such a hard left turn. Dangerous turn. So much so especially during COVID that I walked away from my high paying job at a good station in the middle of a great job in the middle of some very uncertain times because I no longer felt it was moral work. It felt very immoral to do that job. So that's kind of how I left my job with the splash and that's how I ended up running for politics. When I left, I wasn't going to go run for politics. I didn't even think about that. But after I left everyone in Arizona, so many people reached out and said, Kerry, we really admire you. Your courage, thank you for covering this state. Would you consider running for office, we need people with
I-95 Closure in Virginia Ends After Hours of Driver Despair
"Help, I 95 is reopening in Virginia. After the winners storm, I think we all know senator Tim kaine spent 27 hours in his car because of the United States senator, we are focused on what happened, but imagine having four kids in a station wagon. The fetching message he was up late last night, reading horror stories of parents with children one ambulance driver was kind enough to let four freezing kids. They were turning on and off their cars, sleeping an ambulance on gurneys. That'll be a memorable experience. How you can not get organized. This is Ralph northam, Virginia Department of Transportation yesterday. The funniest thing about Twitter were that the morons on Twitter were blaming governor elect Glen young for the Virginia Department of Transportation and aptitude in failing to plan and execute any kind of a close the highway keep people off of it order, which is what they should have done. Just close the eye, keep people off of it until it's plowed. Ohio turned pipes been doing that for years. So Glenn young can just can't get there soon enough. And the national reviews Dominic Pinot wrote a story late last night why I 95 in Virginia is jammed. And it comes down to the Virginia Department of Transportation, lack of preparation, inability to execute and general ineptitude. And this has been 8 years of democratic management. So what did you expect? The Commonwealth used to work when governor George Allen was there. And now governor Glenn young is going to have to bring in an entire new group of managers infused some private sector know how and knowledge. In an era of weather forecasting, if it says 7 inches, then you plan on 14. That's what you do. If your parameters are going to be safe, it's always easier to say, oh, so we missed. And that's what happens with hurricane season. People prepare, then it misses, and that's

John Solomon on the American Public's Sentiment Toward COVID Regulations
"Do you have a sense John I know you're not a pollster? And I've got so much more to ask you, but you have a sense of where the public is generally with this one. Fauci says things like masks forever on planes and, you know, maybe you should avoid Christmas and new year's with your family. After two years, I get the sense the public en masse is a little tired of hearing from that guy. You are spot out and it's funny. I'm writing a story for tomorrow at just the news on this very top because my good friend, Scott Rasmussen, the great bolster. Just did a poll on the gap between what President Biden and the Biden administration in Washington and Fauci want and what Americans want. And these are some fascinating numbers going to be on our site tomorrow morning, but we'll give your listeners an early listen. Only 27% of voters believe the worst of the pandemic is behind us. That is a 29 point drop from the spring and remember in between those two points Joe Biden declared victory over the virus only to be proven wrong. Americans are expecting that this is going to linger on and perhaps the worst is still ahead. Despite that, despite that, only 28% of voters want stricter lockdowns, 53% believe it's okay to go mask us now, particularly if you're immunized and 74% say they just want to go back to resuming life as normal will have to learn to live with the virus. A very strong sentiment that we've been locked down for two years. It hasn't really made much of a difference for God's sake just get back to normal. And I think that these polling data is really strong data, very strong pointers. That's fascinating. So people believe the worst is still to come, but they want to get back to living normally. Yeah, it's an amazing thing. And I think the reason is they have come to conclude that these all these solutions that came out of Washington that sound great. We're going to flatten the curve, wear a mask, you'll save your neighbor. Get a vaccine shot then too, then three, maybe four now. They haven't worked. And at some point, they realize, you know what? I'm going to manage my own
Guest Host Kurt Schlichter and NRA's Cam Edwards Discuss Firearm Rights
"Want to talk about firearm rights, the guy you go to is our next guest from bearing arms. My friend, cam Edwards, cam. Welcome to the Mike Gallagher show. Hi, can you appreciate the invite? Always good to be here. It's a nice change of pace, because when I was beginning in this, I would do your weekly show or I do your show every week. And that's right. Where's my chops? So to speak. Well, listen, it's cool to have the shoe on the other foot, but you are still an occasional guest on the bearing arms game in W podcast, and I get the opportunity to sit in. You are also a gracious guest as well. So it's good to have this conversation. I'm really glad you got a chance to go shooting. Over the years. I did. I did. I was shot various weapons with members of the family because that's what you do in Texas. 32 caliber Glock, small small frame was not impressed by it. 9 millimeters small frame Glock, not impressed by that either, although I like Glock. And an AR-15 derivative. And nice 22. Those are what we shot? Nice. That's fantastic. Good for you. Yeah. Now, of course, I can't conceal carry because I'm in Los Angeles and all I am is a 27 year army veteran who literally carried a machine gun on the streets of Los Angeles. But in Texas, I could. So I was kind of trying out my conceal carry options. Oh, nice. You know what? I'm actually curious. You should do a science experiment in the new year because Alex villanueva, the sheriff there and LA county. He's liberalized his approval of concealing applications. And that means they've gone from like, okay, can you remind they're like 10 million people in Los Angeles County. Last year, I think there were 200 active concealed carry permits. I think now they're over a thousand. No. One thing you can say, look, man, 400% increase the number of kids you'll carry licenses. But as you say, it's still incredibly difficult. Look, it's not difficult. It's impossible
Self-Described Independent Voters Would Prefer Republicans Regain Control of Congress: Poll
"Of course, 2022 is going to be a big year for us as we have to work hard to regain control of the U.S. House. The U.S. Senate, in order to stop some of the nonsense of the Biden administration, a recent poll by John zogby strategies released just within the last few days, says that self described independent voters would prefer by an 18 percentage point margin that Republicans regain control of the Congress. In 2020 twos midterm elections, the poll found that 45% of independents want the GOP in charge of the House and Senate, compared to 27% who won't Democrats to keep their majority. The remaining 28% said that they were undecided at this point. The same survey found that Republicans held a three point advantage 46% of 43% on the generic congressional ballot near Johns ogbe said in a statement in his four decades of polling, Democrats need about a 5 percentage point advantage in nationwide congressional preference in order to maintain a majority in Congress, with the three point Republican lead in a substantial lead among independence, signs were pointing today to the possibility of a big Republican advantage going into 2022.
Rep. Mike Bost on Serving With Then-Senator Barack Obama in Illinois
"Talk to us about serving across the aisle from the now vetted icon Barack Obama. Well, first off, we would play quite often play basketball for full court 5 on 5, which I'm not good, by the way. Basketball together in the mornings. We would play cards in my senators office. Nice guy. Great as far as a whole lot better basketball player than card player. But if you would look and walked into the room where we were in the evenings, playing cards in my senator's office and you looked around the room, you'd say which one of these would be in the top ten to be president. And he wouldn't have made the cut and there were only 8 in the room. I mean, he really, Doug, I'd like to say, you know, he was a great state, senator, he really, but he was just a part just there. And you know, for whatever reason, date, timing, God? You know, we know from our study of scripture that God raises leaders and God takes leaders out and takes good and bad life. Now let me tell you that I respect the office of president, I respected him as president. He did a lot of things that I thought were not right and I would be willing to tell him that, but as far as, of course, now if you look at what follows him with his Joe Biden, we're in people can see where we're at right now. But that was what it was like
Doug and Rep. Mike Bost Discuss Veterans Affairs
"I'm glad you mentioned the fact that before you serve three of us were together all time may you Brad Wyndham and other than I'm talking to Brad real soon again, we spent four who all was there in the mornings on Wednesdays at my office. We all served different branches, of course, I'm air force. I wasn't a night before a short time to spend some time with the marines and Benjamin. Of course, Brad's army, your marine. But it didn't matter. It didn't matter that Brad and I were in Iraq and you what and it we understood the same ethos. Right. And I think that's important. And especially when you're dealing with members who call in and former members who call to your offices and want to deal with the VA and you're dealing with a new generation in the VA that are younger than me and you that are not used to that socialist and only socialist in a way of bad. I mean, the communal nature of the VA. They're more used to their own doctors and they want the benefits of their service, but they're looking for in a different avenue of transmission, I guess. And that's why a lot of the things we're working on and I don't know if you want to go there yet, but we're working on a lot of things that the VA is different. Right now we're working on well, first off, the application of the mission act, which unfortunately, what will happen quite often with bureaucrats is they will try to protect their turf. And the mission act as many of them think that that's privatization. It is not. It is the ability for the veterans to receive help if they're too far away from the VA, then they can receive the help in a private sector, or if they're going to baby waiting a long time, are the services are not available in the VA system that has beneficial to
Rep. Mike Bost on the Craziness of Congress
"I dear Friends, we're more than that. We're more than colleagues in Congress. We've gotten to know each other. Very much our families and it's just good to have you on the show. We got a lot to talk about today. I mean, Congress is, have you seen it this crazy lately? You know, I've been reading the book reading a couple books that have come out recently. Everything from the dealing with Abe Lincoln, what he dealt with, and then also the clash between Adams and Jefferson. You know, I think we're maybe each time feels as bad as it is because you're living in it, at least I hope that's the case. If not, we're in a lot of trouble with as bad as it is right now. I think the idea of all the social media and the 24 hour news networks and the extremists on each side that it's more about fighting and having reason, you know what I mean?
Delusional Democrats Think 'Build Back Better' Bill Will Still Pass Despite Manchin's Rejection
"I want to turn briefly to this idea that somebody Democrats are saying, oh, we're going to get build back better through. You know, Joe Manchin just going to come around is going to come around. Here we go again. Right? I mean, this is what The White House was trying to spoon feed the media. When Joe Manchin himself was saying something actually entirely different if he read the tweets. If you read the op-ed in The Wall Street Journal, I do not think thank goodness. Ali luya, we're ever going to get there with Joe Manchin. In fact, I'd love to see him join the Republican Party, but you do notice how the Democrats are trying to put all kinds of pressure on him, including with unions there in West Virginia. In an effort still to revise this thing. I mean, have you ever heard the expression? Quit while you're ahead. Someone needs to teach Joe Biden. And the rest of these schmos, Nancy Pelosi Chuck Schumer and the rest of them all about quit while you're ahead. They could have declared a big victory. With that infrastructure plan, but no, no, they had to. They had to go for the gold, so to speak, which would have been a real disaster for our economy. And I'm going to get to that in a second because of inflation concerns. But now they look like total failures. They're not going to succeed in
The Anthony Fauci Power Grab
"Lot of things I can't say today, which is why I want to encourage you to go to locals. I have just signed up on the locals platform and there's sort of an additional leg to this show if you would over there on locals Trish Regan dot local dot com do come and find me there, subscribe to that platform. I'd love to have you because there's a few more things I'd like to say. I'm gonna tell you a fair amount here, but it's gonna go even further. Shall we say on that platform? Because you actually have some freedom of speech. I want to get to Joe Manchin and the reality that we're just not going to get Bill back better through that is an important story as well that's continuing to circulate in terms of the Democrats being rather delusional thinking that maybe somehow some way he will come through at the end of the day. I do not believe that's the case, but first, let's go back to Anthony Fauci and his power grab here. It's a story that we reported on Trish Intel dot com, my own website. If you haven't been there, make sure you go every day. Watch the stories that we're looking at their attrition Intel dot com. Because you've got basically Anthony Fauci, really, again, doing what I would call a kind of overreach if you would. An overreach because somehow he thinks it is perfectly perfectly sane to effectively require if you want to go from one state to another, require that you show proof of vaccination. He said, this is something that we should be looking at because it might on the margin make a difference, people that aren't vaccinated right now. They'll get vaccinated because they want to travel. This is all about you see big government trying to make this decision for you. Forget the fact that Americans should have some say in all of this themselves. According to CDC data, I want to point out 72% of Americans are fully vaccinated against COVID, 64.5 million people have received their booster shot. So by the way, the numbers are actually pretty decent. And yet this administration is always looking for excuses, excuses as to why now everybody's getting this omnikron variant. You know, it's quite possible and this was said to me by a good friend a source and someone on the left. Yeah, you know, I talk to them too. Occasionally, someone on the left said to me, no, we had a thank. South Africa. We have a thank them because at least at least it's not that horrific a variant. And it's not causing the same kind of
"2.7%" Discussed on WIBC 93.1FM
"Let's see they had a 2.7 reported near three Southern California beaches two miles away from Redondo Beach, California That happened last night at around 8 30, So I mean, that's kind of crazy, right, like two earthquakes in the United States. In the same day. It does remind you you're in control of nothing. Yeah, well, and that's the weird sensation right When you feel your house shaking. It's kind of like turbulence on an airplane where you feel utterly helpless to put your body in any sort of situation where it feels like you have control. That's what's so terrifying about turbulence to me and so many other people. I mean, I know you're scared of it, because you won't even get on a freaking plane. I'm not scared of the turbulence like I'm scared of the check engine light. We've been through this a million times. I'm Jacob says he was at the pool yesterday. So that's probably why he didn't feel it right. If you are in the water at the time, like and the water is sloshing all around you, you're not going to feel it. But in a house Yeah, that's pretty fast, too. That's pretty because don't they normally last for a little bit. That's the thing they're all over the place. I mean, some can last for many, many, many seconds and some like the one yesterday it was over. I mean, it was definitely inside of 8 to 10 seconds, I would say I texted my neighbor immediately, and I was like, Did you feel that? And he was like Phil. What? So that's when I thought I was crazy, and I was like, I think we just had an earthquake. He asked his wife. His wife did feel it. And then I went to Twitter and I saw all these people just put in the keyword earthquake and saw all these people going, I think, which is that an earthquake in India. And so then I felt okay. I'm not crazy. Well, I feel bad for alleging you were drunk. I was not drunk. I mean, I feel like you here. I guess it was because what? This is a giant building. Maybe central Indiana. Indianapolis didn't feel it as much. I don't know why you didn't feel it. I did not know that we like Indiana was like right now. Heart line of where a big earthquake? Yes, Let's think about this. So they're teaching critical race theory in public school, But they don't even inform kids now. Hey, you're you're on a major fault line. This probably something you ought to know My fear, of course about earthquakes is not even about the quake itself. But the potential sinkholes that could be a result because you know how I am about singles. I'm terrified of sinkholes and I feel like if anything is going to cause one. It's going to be an earthquake because the whole ground is shifting, you know, so palatial caramel estate could be swallowed up. I mean, it's not palatial into the abyss it could. It could be swallowed up. I'm already convinced I have a sink hole in the back. Anyway, We have to talk about Trump getting ready to do some rallies. We have the date of the very first rally to report on. We've obviously got Juneteenth to talk about so much news is going on. We're going to get.

"How many 2.7 Million Wow, which again? 2.7 million would be. There's this ridiculously cold sides going back and forth. Where the left is saying. This is the worst year ever, and the Republicans are now starting to say this was the best month ever, and it's like, well both of those of ridiculous right like you were bouncing back, and that's great. But we had a lot of room to bounce back. And the idea that you're going to point this is like this economy is crashing. I can't believe Donald Trump. I don't know if you've noticed, but there's a little thing we're dealing with right now called a pandemic. It's kind of a big deal. So we go minus 20.8 million in April than plus 2.7 million jobs in May then, plus 4.8 million in June. Well then, in July, plus 1.7 million And in August plus 1.4 million. That's the new number. So the job losses in March and April were 22.1 million. The job gains since then have been 10.6 million. We've got almost half basically about halfway there so far now, the negative look at that is to say. It's slowing, right? We went four point 8,000,001 4.0.71 point three in the last three months, so it is the rate is slowing and if it doesn't pick up We're not going to get back to, you know, full by November, which is a ridiculous I mean, that would be incredible. To be honest, I don't expect if you if you can show what really brings them into the economy, recovery that they're looking for. That would be it would be an arguable, right. They get bat would be nice to have an in an arguable point. Yes, that would be nice. I don't think we're gonna get all the way there. He's got two more months. Trump's got two more months, because, remember, we will not have November numbers by the election. Obviously, it will still be in November. However, I think I think we get upto. Maybe we'll even have October numbers. He at least has one more month of September. Did you feel about that? Thursday, right? We'll have so that'll be Tuesday. It will. It will be after right is the first day I met you last Thursday. Yes. So we will not. She's got one more month here. He could probably tack on a couple of million more, and he will have the weekly reports that will that will have come in before the election. So haven't argument as to but probably what you're looking at. If we're looking at this realistically, he's probably Donald Trump is probably going to be Telling you the night before the election that he's brought back between 60 and 70% of these jobs, which is great, really, which is looking pretty impressive in a few months. The problem is some of the businesses that were forced into being shut down. Are not coming back. And so neither of those jobs so you've lost already in New Jersey. You lost 30% of all restaurants, and they're thinking that might go to 50% before before it's done. And New York still isn't open for indoor dining yet got all those restaurants struggling? To make ends meet on 25% of outdoor area being filled every day. Well, that's not enough for these guys to make ends meet. Of course not. So that's why I That's the problem And this is the thing I keep coming back to A problem. A big problem with his economic argument is that so much of it is in the hands of one of the worst people in our society. Nancy Pelosi. Yeah, because We had. Obviously, we all understand. Even even most libertarians. I've talked to about this understand and agree that when the government comes to you and says you need to stay home for a couple of months. The government needs to step in and make that right. It's almost it's closer to. It's closer to a eminent domain situation than it is a bailout. Right now. It's basically saying we're going to take this from you want to take two months here work? Here's your compensation forced by the government, and the government's responsibility is to you and I think that right? Almost everyone agrees. That should be. Yes, that should happen for a short Time, not forever, but for a time there should be some sort of some sort of government exchange. So that happened and it did protect. Obviously, there's some. There's some ability to be able to just pay your way out of these problems for a short time, So that's what we did we spend we spent trillions of dollars to make it so it was only 20 million people who were losing their jobs and not 70. All right, so That has happened is also now expiring. If you were on unemployment, you know this if you're one of those 20 million people, you know this right where you lost your job, The unemployment they gave you the $600 a week bonus basically, to cover the fact that they told you that you had to lose your job and that has now run out. If you were a small business, they gave you money to bridge the gap here that is now run out, and not everybody got it, And not everybody got it anyway. It was not well run. Anyway, it was me that was thrown together. It's the government. That's what do you think what happened? Not well, So now that's all expired. The Republicans and Democrats both say that it should continue. Obviously. And Now Nancy Pelosi isn't even. I mean, she's negotiating about it because she knows she holds this in her hands. And if you are one of those people who think that Nancy Pelosi cares so much about people that she won't destroy the economy for a couple of months to get Donald Trump out of office course you would. Of course you would write like, I don't even I don't know that there's a hesitation in me that says that Nancy Pelosi would if she's going to have a choice. Between potentially helping Donald Trump's election on hurting millions of people. I know not every not every Democrat, I would say this about Nancy Pelosi absolutely say it about she would much, Mohr I prefer she doesn't want the economy to come back until the jobs to come back. She made you write. Not until November, at least if they if they win, she'll be happy to try to bring him back. But this is something more. Basically, Republicans are agreeing with Democrats. Yeah, you know, we got through trillions of dollars of this problem, and so These numbers may get worse because of what is happening with this government program again, like we all realize this is not sustainable. We can't just pay our way out of this forever. But to try to bridge this gap is important. And I, you know, look, she doesn't want to do it because she knows it's going to help Donald Trump. So either one thing at one of two things is gonna happen. She's either going to not Further this government program, which is going to obviously hurt in the short term, or she is going to extract such severe penalties and ask for such a crazy crap. That means we may not want to sign it anyway. So it's a tough spot for Republicans right now. Triple 8 77..

"Have died and nearly 2.7 million have tested positive for covert ID Be and course thoughts of myself. Everyone on this committee are with those individuals and those families who have been affected. I've called this hearing really to look at in update on the efforts that the administration's put together, and frankly, members of this committee were very involved in to see if we couldn't establish a new way to look responding. Toe pandemic. I think we have the chance to actually write a new important chapter in what that response. Looks like developing the right back scene. The right therapeutics. The right testing is important. And I think we're going to talk today about ways. To try to have all of the safeguards in developing all of those things about with a federal partner going forward more quickly than we would have ever gone forward today. I saw in reporting this morning that visor is just passed an important mark with the vaccine they're working on. Maybe the most significant thing I saw in that article was advisers believes they may have 100 million doses of that vaccine available by the end of the year. That would be an extraordinary thing if it happens, and I think what we're going to hear from our witnesses today. Is that there are other companies that would be developing different vaccines. That also would add to that that figure that might be available late this year or early next year. Like the administration's willingness toe, take this new initiative, the willingness of the administration and, frankly, our Appropriations Committee and the The Congress in what we did in the last Cove in act to put some money behind, taking a chance, not a chance with an effective vaccine or test but a chance that we may move forward with something that doesn't work. More to also allow us to move forward Early was something That does work. This committee, the full committee and the kind the Congress has provided nearly $10 billion for this overall effort, and the vast majority of this investment will support the research and development of vaccines. And treatments there over 100 vaccines and development worldwide operation Warp speed, I believe is beginning to focus in on about seven would they that we would encourage the advancement of into clinical trials and further development. Importantly as N I H and the Biomedical Advanced Research Development Authority continue to oversee. The development of these vaccines were also going to be talking today about how manufacturing for maybe the first time ever would begin while the vaccine is still going through the other process, and maybe while tests are still going through the other process, as we saw earlier this year With diagnostic testing research at N. I h. The current processes can be streamlined to make them faster. Just because something is new doesn't mean it's better, but this is a time. To try things and to see what we can figure out to make work under the Shark Tank program program that particularly Senator Alexander and I spent a lot of time talking to people at this table about principally Dr Collins, but people at this table manufacturers And others were hoping the fast track diagnostic test have tests that are easier to take with a quicker response. Frankly, millions of people can take dozens of times getting school started in the fall that residential campuses and elementary and secondary schools on all other campuses. Having a test available will make a big difference. Subcommittee chair Roy Blunt. Some people have warned that the timetable to develop both testing vaccines next year is for two fast. Others have said. Well, maybe accelerating. The process means that regulatory corners will be cut. We're gonna be working really hard to be sure, that is absolutely not the case and I think our leaders here today. Will help reassure us of what they're doing to see that. That doesn't happen this an opportunity for our witnesses to explain to our committee and the American people how the development process works, how they'll ensure that the vaccine will be safe and even with an accelerated research and development time table how the vaccine will be distributed across the country. As quickly as possible. I've said to several people, people lately on the topic of vaccine and distribution that obviously developing the back scene is the top priority. But right below that top priority is having a plan that distributes that vaccine in a way that people believe it's fair and equitable on meets the standards that we should be establishing. Right now they're clearly concerns about the vaccine. About half of Americans are either reluctant about one out of five Americans says they're just not going to take the vaccine. I certainly intend to Andi. I think most Americans will, and as we reassure people about this process They also think about smallpox and polio and other things that in many cases, vaccines have been ableto move outside the system because vaccines did theirjob and kids in the fourth and fifth grade. Don't line up any longer, so that every single person takes their smallpox shock like they did when most of us were kids. I hope today's hearing really makes an impact on those concerns. I believe it will on DH look forward to our witnesses. Sarah Murray is here and I'm going to recognize her for her opening statement. Sarah Murray, thanks for being with us today, and thanks for working together to have this hearing, the ranking Democrat on the subcommittee Thank you very much. Mr Chairman. I really want to thank you, Shelly for allowing our community members to participate in this hearing virtually today and I want to take all of our committee staffer setting everything up, and I watched all of our witnesses who are joining us today as well. Your agencies play a critical role in the development of some of the most important tools against the Koven 19 pandemic safe and effective diagnostics to identify cases, therapies to help patients of frontline workers fight this disease and, ultimately a vaccine to move towards ending this crisis.

"The drought further reduced. Food supplies well at the same time reducing the supplies of tobacco and has the Prophet available. The taxes being paid were not adjusted for a bad tobacco harvest. They were set by weight and that did not change unless the assembly decided to raise taxes planters in Virginia. And we're now left with a choice your taxes as required or feed and clothe your family what emerges from this in sixteen seventy five sixteen. Seventy six are a series of protests regarding the high tax rate which predictably fell upon mostly deaf ears in the Virginia Assembly. At least until the rebellion started all of this was going on with Berkeley and his friends getting rich. The background those close to Berkeley consistently got the large tracts of land by the time sixteen sixty five rolled around the concept of private land ownership for the most part was little more than a pipe-dream instead the best they could hope for was to rent a tract of land from the wealthy landlords. Those friends of Berkeley. This of course means that they were going to have to be able to pay rent those landowners on top of everything else to put so much of this into perspective in the years before the war Berkeley was earning on average about a thousand pounds a year for his work. After everything was paid out the average farmer was doing pretty good if they manage to bring home three pounds of Prophet things were as unequal as they could be in a system where people had little interest in dealing with it any longer in this way. Bacon rebellion is going to prove to be just as much of a tax revolt as it was anything else in the years since Berkeley had retaken. The governor's Office a system of cronyism had spread like a weed throughout the colony as taxes progressively climbed higher for the planters. It became harder and harder to meet with the growing burden in good years. These taxes were oppressive but dealt with however throughout sixteen seventy five and seventy six king. Philip's war New England. Bad Harvests and drought in sixteen seventy six pushed an already tense situation over the edge into what was going to become a full rebellion. People being forced to decide between feeding and clothing their family and paying the required tax were stressed to the breaking point however high taxes alone are insufficient to explain the coming events beyond just having to pay high taxes. There was growing discontent towards the Virginia government over the perceived inequalities of that tax system. The rich landholders didn't have to pay the taxes that were being assessed. They were exempted from it. On account of being assemblyman Berkeley did an expert job of keeping his friends loyal largely by setting them up not only to avoid the taxes directly but also by placing them in a position where they would be receiving the tax revenue directly in for example the case of the port tax. The proximate cause of Baker's rebellion is going to be over tensions with the local native American tribes that the Virginia government failed to adequately respond to we touched on the issue of the four tax day and are going to cover this in much more depth at our next episode. Suffice it to say however that this plan is going to prove to be woefully inadequate in the eyes of the Virginia. Planters along the frontier. All of this is going to explain. Why when tension spill over during the summer of sixteen seventy six so many colonists were willing and eager to join bake. It's 'cause next time we are going to discuss the events that took place with the local native American tribes that would push civil discontent into the realm of open rebellion. Until then. I hope you are all remaining healthy and staying safe. I will see you back here in two weeks time as we continue to look at the causes of Bacon 's rebellion..

"To the crowd to ensure that they were complying with the rules and that they had agreed to return their goods to England placing this burden upon ship. Captains is going to result in an additional expense. Being passed down to the growers to help cover the additional costs associated with trading in these particular items eight. Third Navigation Act was passed in sixteen seventy three which require the communists to pay the same duties that those back in England had to pay. Furthermore and particularly troubling was the provision that said those goods specifically mentioned above as needing to be sent back to England now included Inter colonial trade. This means that if Virginia wanted to send tobacco up to New England trade that would now be forbidden. Instead the tobacco is going to have to be sent back to England and then from England so back to New England this was put in place to ensure that even within the colonies everybody was paying their dues in terms of the economic policy of the time. These are perfectly in line with mercantile beliefs. England wanted to maintain a trade imbalance and won a better control over their colonies from committing unauthorized trade. If say Virginia was selling tobacco to France at a lower cost without including England it was going to reduce French demand and put England in a worse overall position for trade the thought was that by controlling the channels of Trade. England would also be able to control the demand now long term. We are going to talk a whole lot about the navigation. Acts to say that they were unpopular in the colonies would be about the understatement of the century. These acts were absolutely hated and despised by the colonists entire industries popped up in the American colonies to circumvent these acts through what was basically a thriving smuggling industry. It is through this mugging industry. That men like John. Hancock are going to enter into our story later. On in the seventeen sixty s we are going to England attempt to double down efforts on enforcing these allegation acts which is going to really upset those in the colony especially up in Boston over that is all a story for another day and as you can guess we are going to spend a whole lot of time talking about just that subject in the more immediate times the navigation acts are going to prove to be a major blow to the colonies especially however regarding Virginia the lack of a diversified economy. The kind of economy that Berkeley himself had been supporting means that when a blow was dealt to the tobacco trade it was a blow to the entire economic hard of the colony. The original purpose of this particular set of navigation acts was meant to cripple the Dutch who the English were at the time engaged in a war by closing off English ports to the Dutch. It would basically lock them out of trading in the North American tobacco trade in reality the effect that the acts had on the colonies was a cooling of demand for their cash crop. Fewer ships were being allowed in which meant that. There was less demand which meant that. The price for tobacco fell. It also meant that instead of having the whole of Europe to trade with the Virginia. Planters were now limited to the much smaller. England trade with overnight England became saturated with tobacco. Well indeed there was still a demand. The Senate oversupplied England further FORCE DOWN TOBACCO PRICES WELL. Berkeley himself would have no influence in the passing of the navigation acts. He is going to be much more responsible for a more direct taxation bean placed on the farmers. Well that allegation Surely are not going to be popular. It is the tax structure under Berkeley. That is going to really prove to be the fuel that is going to feed the rebellion of sixteen seventy six drain. What is now known as the longest simply which is up period from sixteen sixty to sixteen seventy five where Berkeley refused to allow an election. Corruption and over-taxation became a staple of Geo life. It is going to be along the lines of this taxation chiefly who is paid it. And who isn't that are going to set up the scene for the rebellion to take place in one example of this corruption. We see a situation emerge where the assembly learn that. Royal Grants of land in Virginia to new proprietors back in England could pose a challenge to the existing system. Berkeley of the Assembly decided that this is not going to stand and issue a new tax to raise funds to buy the new in troublesome proprietors out eight new head tax was issued for sixty pounds of tobacco per person. Keep in mind that this tax is going to affect more than just the individual. Do you have servants slaves sons? Well they are all going to be subject to the taxes. Well and you. The little peasant landowner is going to be the one responsible for paint this tax end up raising right around seven thousand pounds sterling. Super imprecise methods. Tell me that in modern dollars that would have been in the ballpark of half a million. Us dollars again. That is just a very rough estimate there as handling the rate of inflation. From that. You're a two now is a rather effort either way. It was a significant amount of money raised by the tax any tax that was particularly disliked by the peasantry. But Hey at least they bought out all those evil proprietors back in England right. Well no of the money. We know that nearly five thousand of it had gone directly to the governor and his allies for their personal use in fact. None of the money was needed for anything. The Duke of York had vacated the grants of land years before dope. There was nothing to buy back. So of course at this point the government refunded the money back to the peasantry. Right well now. They definitely did not do that either. Well this was just one of many unpopular taxes. It is worth noting that among the people having to pay it. There is no evidence that they had any idea of how serious the financial mismanagement had been. The complaint of the commodores was the rate of the tax. They appear unaware that the tax was ultimately unnecessary nor that the governor and the assembly were skimming most of it off to themselves. This head tax represented the single largest tax that the VIRGINIANS had to deal with however it was one of several taxes that they had to pay. We are going to discuss the much hated for tax next time in more detail but I want to introduce it to you quickly here. Following native American attacks on the English borders of the Virginia frontier instead of taking military action Berkeley instead decided to build a set forth along the border. These defensive fortifications were by all accounts. Basically large piles of dirt on the land of the richest landlords the richest landlords who were in fact breads of the governor. Of course to build these forts it is going to be necessary to pay for them. So Berkeley issued a tax to pay for the endeavor so now imagine for a moment that you're a colonists. Living along the frontier people are being killed by the native American tribes along the border. So you look to your leadership. The Virginia government to take command of the situation instead of taking the military action that you want them to take the government instead decides to build a series of ineffective and pointless defensive forts that are going to do basically zero to keep you from being killed on top of that your now being asked to pay a tax that you can't afford to support these pointless forts and then just to rub salt. In an open wound. The money that you're paying is being given to the richest landlords who probably suspect are completely misusing. The money that you couldn't afford to pay in the first place again. We are going to talk about this more in our next episode however just from this alone you can quickly see the growing discontent between the colonists and the Virginia Assembly making matters worse was how taxes were being assessed and collected the job of collecting. The taxes belong to the local justice of the peace. These justices were appointed by. You guessed it governor Berkeley. The problem with the assessment is that the justices regularly value tobacco below the market rate the tobacco from these already struggling planters was valued at approximately sixteen pounds per hundred weight on the open market. However the justices were only giving half of the assessed value for tobacco. Just eight pounds per hundred weight. This means that the effective tax was doubled for poor farmers already struggling under an incredibly burdensome tax-load you needed twice as much tobacco to meet your burdens then the actual market value of that tobacco the taxes that we have discussed so far are only those taxes being charged by the Virginia government. On top of this are going to come a new set of taxes that were put in place by the navigation acts recall from just a little while ago that with the new navigation laws in place. The colonists are now no longer able to trade directly with any country other than England and that because tobacco was in that special category it had to be shipped back to England directly for the farmer in Virginia. By the time sixteenth seventy six rolled around it was abundantly. Clear that a lot of people were making a lot of money from their tobacco exports. The only people not making money the farmer who is actually doing the growing. It is estimated that the average planter was paying somewhere around half of their yearly income in taxes. The oppressively high tax in Virginia was a secret to nobody records. Show that in June of sixteen seventy six mere weeks before the rebellion would really get going crown counselors back in. London observed that the people of Virginia were paying a high annual tax likewise they noted that the amount collected from everyone was rising on an annual basis. On the eve of Bacon's rebellion. The common planter was paying approximately two hundred and fifty pounds of tobacco per head. This was a crushing amount on the average farmer to add to this pain just to you know rebel. Little extra salt into that open wound. There is the fact that the assessment of taxes excluded the largest earners in the colony Berkeley be assembly and the clergy were immune from having to pay any of these taxes that were so burdensome to the average planter. Those who had the means to pay were exempted from the tax entirely. How does one find themselves in such a favorable? You ask well. The main goal here was to be on as good of terms as possible with governor Berkeley. This system of mismanagement and base level inequality in the assessment and collection of taxes did not go unnoticed in the best years. The system would have caused discontent among the masses however in a barrier. These stresses are going to more from loudly complaining. To full-fledged Tax Mutinies Virginia was a colony that have bases entire economy on tobacco however tobacco isn't food so there was always some consideration given to grow in the crowd would also sustain the colonists. Nobody wanted to starve to death. The main crop that the Virginia planters grew was corn however recent developments with the local Indian tribes. Those same types that we are going to be talking about in our next episode made it possible for frontier farmers to have a full yield of corn with the corn crops. Not at full yield Virginians. Were going to be forced to turn to their other. Sources for food primarily New England. It had long become common practice. That Virginia would import grave from New England. Which would supplement their food supply unfortunately for the planters however right when they were dealing with a sub standard corn harvest for the year war broke out in New England king. Philip's war began in sixteen seventy five and with it. We see a sudden reduction in the amount of grain. That New England was going to be able to send to Virginia for now. Don't worry about King Philip's war. Once we wrap up our series on Bacon's rebellion king. Philip's war is going to get a series of episodes of its own for this week. Just know that the war in New England led to a limited grain supply reaching Virginia in sixteen seventy five and in the years to follow the cost of the corn and grain still available on the market would of sort at this point as in light of the shortage. There was now a large demand for it right at a time. When the supply had a major drop because of King Philip's war finally as though right on cue sixteen seventy six brought with.

Sometimes you gotTa sometimes you Doubt Yourself. Sometimes you let your mental state at the better of you But I really love just all the details for story. I really love that. Her mother was able to support her postpartum. I think you know we have to get back to community care and supporting our own children. As as we age you know. Get supporting our our own children. Our grandchildren I just think that share really represents what it means to shift the culture. Because she's was able to do it in her own family I just think that Shea story is very powerful. Very family centered. Her plan was to have concurrent care but she ended up. Firing her midwives essentially leaving their practice because they just you know at every corner. There was a fear or anxiety or diagnosis shea. Felt was just not an alignment with you. Know her baby and herself and she just believed in you know having the birth the outcome that she desired and she had that it took a little bit of pushing no pun intended. But she got there and I just think her story is just amazing. Amazing amazing and I feel so great to have the privilege of sharing it exclusively on homecoming podcast. Thank you so much for listening..

"Love failed with long. He was made with love. He was born into love. Came out of love. Love Him love saying that he was went like it was it was love. He was surrounded by love when he came when my mom came. My Mom's took care of me. I did talk about this part publicly. If you have nothing video I would encourage people to go back and watch it on my facebook page but my mom took my blood pressure. Mom Literally just wasted on me hand but like she made sure my this willing in my feet and went down. My Mom. Learn how to. Billy by on the spot. She helped me by my belly. She was rubbing and castle oil. Like Lemme one your towel up like my mom was the bomb postcards like yes. My mom made my partner in transition and like so so easy so easy. You know when you birth at home. There isn't a team of nurses right. There isn't anybody to come and check on you and all of this but I definitely steelhead. That Mama was own it. She took my temperature. She was making sure like Oh. Let me check the PAT. You know to make sure the blood was like. Mama was on our definitely sad to see her goal. Like I think those yeah definitely one of my highlights. My Momma would be yeah. She's like she needs to be a postpartum nurse because she was doing it. Okay like all of the things. That's beautiful because from what I remember. Your family wasn't super excited about the Hamburg idea. The first time with messy right. No we were not excited about the home birth the first time with but I feel like this time around people were like okay Obviously is going to be here thing so we may as well so poor her Because clearly she's not going to change her mind even though she ended up in the hospital. The first time so This time I feel like we got all of the support like it wasn't even a question if he was gonna be born at home or in like you'd literally wasn't a question. I I didn't feel like I had to prep people like okay. This is the berthing space and this is what we're GONNA do like. I didn't feel the need to do any of it. It's hard like people just like it has become very normal very normal in our family Now after we've had you know the second baby that babies are born at home like it wasn't even the question. There was no shock. Like oh no he was born. Oh okay like that. You know especially more extended family because I feel like by now. They know that my baby can be born at home and this is that net. Come on. That's how you ship culture. Yes that's how you shift the culture. Ooh So I'm excited. Yeah it was great. I mean they ha I owe you okay all right so both of my babies are like only in right now we can rent a okay anything else about your crank or warn them or the birth itself that you want to share that. I haven't already asked about follow your NC. I think that's like the moral of my story. Here is to follow your instinct. Every step of the way just instinctually knew that something was different. Like no no no and I questioned everything they said. And not just out of my district for you know the system but because I felt different so I think very important to trust your instincts and know what you WanNa do. Because I feel confident that I was going to have my baby at home. Come Haleiwa right. Yeah I think that's so important to an even even while you're actually in labor it's important to trust your instincts instincts. If your instincts are telling you. Do you know everybody leave your house. Do Y- energetically like yeah. That's the most important thing in birth like what's happening energetically so you can clear the berthing space. So that feels safer or more if you and your partner. Maybe maybe you don't even really know that but subconsciously. You know that because your baby is telling you know and I think that definitely shifted Some things for a because Labor had slow all the way down and then when people live Labor had picked up like crazy to the point where it had got to be a lot and I thought I was going for the baby's head. Yeah so it was an and it happened very quickly I think. By at least eight o'clock everybody was gone. Mosaic was born eleven forty seven though. It definitely was a quick Was that Thursday or Wednesday Wednesday. Okay Wednesday on how? Yeah so so a question for you is is Mensa that he that you guys didn't do a joint interview now. I asked him before I said I'm doing is Thing today do you want to do it? He was like you know he was Kinda India. Okay but I did invite him. This time oppose the last time where he didn't even get the invite. Okay and then how do you think that? Do you think that this birth experience has changed relationship with Mensa? Paul Minneapolis Nejla. It has definitely changed. Our relationship After I feel like once you get that up close and personal and intimate you have no choice but to shit and you're really we have to elevate and vibrate at different level than we had been because you just caught your baby in your bedroom next to the bed that you currently sleep in like you can't say the same after that I definitely love him a lot more. I've seen like he loves me a lot. More to It's just I don't know we just. We definitely shifted a lot and we were doing these questions a few weeks ago. And one of the questions were What is your best moment that has happened to you recently? And we both had the same answer the birth of Mo- Zaira and we both have agreed that it has literally brought a closer in a way that we didn't think that we will get closer. You know Because it was just beautiful and you called your own baby like why. Yeah but we have. We had no choice but this year and it's been a very very beautiful shifts and we I don't know we have a very different bond now after just not making the baby but him catching the baby you know ask them like wow that that definitely will be enough to shift any relationship for the you know a higher elevation as you said. Yeah that's beautiful. Yeah Bill honored and privileged to be able to listen to receive your birth story. So I'm hoping that that also translates to our listeners and I think it will because it's a really incredible story from start. I feel like you had to overcome a lot of you know Worry fear and self doubt maybe in information from the midwives in the beginning. That was thoroughly comfortable to hear. Except Yep like you said. You're the moral of your story. Is Trusting your instincts. And you're able to do that and birth your baby in love with the people you love and you know we're meant to be in that space there and so She's been really awesome to listen to your story.

There he runs back up here and I don't even hear her like come into the room and Apparently I also exclusive to homecoming podcasts. The baby's cord was wrapped around his neck. Oh wow there is a video of this part like you can see this part in the video. And she liked. He'll tells him just taking fingers and like unhook it. You know just like that you know real nice and easy so I can feel Mensa on like taking the core from around his neck. And I'm like don't don't don't because it felt like they will pulling on the baby. But when he was the cord around the neck I guess the game mosaic just like just enough space that he needed and the next contraction. He laughed and he likes lead out of there. It was literally Ted took the court. I'll body boom just like this literally. how it? And so she's like sitting there and she picks you know Minstrel caught the baby and then he was in crying. So at this point Measures Guy has the baby and she likes sitting down trying to rub his back. You know. Get him the cry. And I'm like I don't WanNa hurt you this dirty. I don't want to do this dirt. I'm like just let me sit down. Sit Down so I'm like thing on the floor and I'm like Oh my God. Oh my God oh shit because I think I was like in shock. You know like I couldn't believe it and like okay okay. Gives them was Mama because then I kind of realized again that he wasn't crying he was like he was quiet. He wasn't making a noise. I didn't think that anything wrong but I did want to hear him cry. You know because that's like the keys to life being okay so Put Mosaic in my arms and it was like as soon as his head such much is he started crying and he's like well and it was loud and like a little baby that's and his hands were covered in baby goo and it was like dripping everywhere and at this point car is here and maybe is in here. My mom was on the phone on the Facetime or whatever and like it was like this whole thing and he he was like he was just waiting on his mama and as soon as he had such much as you like. Oh okay this is her like this is the one I've been waiting on. And it was beautiful. And then messy says Momma baby and I said yes. She's saying Tommy S and no. He's not anymore this is a baby in my tummy. And she said I'd say yeah you can touch him and she liked took her hand and she rubbed his head and she said Oh Mama I said what do you went bing. Everybody's a bust out laughing. My it was super beautiful moment like it. It was beautiful and I don't know like my kids got to their sibling. Born right here in our bedroom and then I mean they left for the Placenta and like the Nixon fraction came and I could feel it like sitting there and like I want it. I felt like I needed to pull it out but I did it but as soon as I like. Do it up like to get on my knees. The push a little more. It like flopped out and that was it like we put it in a bowl and I got in the bed and like lash the baby and it was absolutely beautiful like I literally couldn't i. I like crying because it was so yes. Oh my that was amazing. And I don't know I feel like that's everything I dreamed that home birth would be you know even like the crazy part where like I'm like. Oh don't worry about it. Just go home the biggest not coming. That's why I say Maduna wasn't even here because I sent her home because I thought it was you know like menzies. Birth women contractions low down so but he came out and I think it I think it was just a lot of people here for him and he didn't want those people here then he's the best thing kind of been meaner. He's very quiet. He's very chill relaxed. Cool calm collected like all of those adjectives of babies being like super calm and Super. Chiel is mosaic. And I feel like that's totally the flip for Medi. Medi was dramatic in birth and she is dramatic in her actual life and mosaic is the opposite. He was very calm throughout my pregnancy. He didn't move as much he did it. You know he didn't. He was calm. My birth was even like calm and cooling selected. Like I didn't walk or I wasn't doing all of these things. At a certain point. I was just hanging out on the couch. And on the on the most part and then when he came out he was the old quiet who calm and collected and like that is really him like mosaic is his middle name. Macaulay means wind. And I feel like that's literally him like you can like feel him but you may not see him you know you don't hear him he like but you know that he's there just like the win then. I feel like he really lives up to his name in every way and it's I duNno. It was absolutely beautiful and I like revel in the fact that mental put the baby in there and he got the baby out and I think that's my favorite part of the whole thing for. That's my favorite part for my son to have been born into his father's hands like that means Was there to catch him in. Support the core off of his neck like and after that like people have been joking like little the midwives like like that'd be one like a whole thing now and he's like you know he's called himself apart terrible these days. Oh like he knows everything right. You deliver one baby now. You're like top notch. I don't know but it it was beautiful. It was everything that I dream. That homeboy would be in every way. Wow that's powerful. That's powerful man. There are so many like interesting things about your story and when you were saying missile was the one that put them in there. And he's the one that got him out. I was thinking like not only. Did he physically Catch Messiah? But you also have some sex that Might have started your labor. I think that's that's exactly what starting my labor so middle was like a pivotal part in this process limbo yes like from literal start to finish MISSOULA and an integral part of this whole process and it was it was beautiful and then I called the do like oh well the baby's here you missed it. She came back she cooked grain. She had apple Jews which is like a certain brand that wanted all of that so it was. It was great and then Ms Of mom came and my mom had finally made it from Memphis and it was. It was gorgeous it was literally a family affair. It really really really was wow Muslim. Losing and he is here and he is. He'll be oh he was so they kept saying that he measured small because he was small when he came out he was four pounds and twelve ounce so he was definitely a small baby like so yeah wasn't in. Yes. Measure Z was four pounds. Eight out. So they I think I just make small babies. I can't see myself carrying shack anytime you know. That's all either right. Aren't you know like five to four and maybe being very generous like those are like five four five five so he's also very like very small? We're small people though. I think that just make small my baby but I I said to say like I could have very well. Listen to the hospital and instead of my instinct life. I know that my baby isn't you you know like I know that I probably just make small base and that drawers. They are wrong. Like I don't believe that I'm going to be pregnant. Marsters for sure was not so. Okay baby okay. Okay so according to my calculations Mosaic was born at thirty nine weeks and three days while he was little A full term baby. They were just small. Okay Okay Cuba. And now he is like not that at all. He is Chunky Modi is definitely a chunky baby like definitely doubled tripled our birthweight by now yes definitely tripled the birthweight Missing on meals which is the bare opposite of messy messy was small field is small but mosaic is sixty from Sunday almost five months he. He'll be five months on the twenty seven right. Yes thinking people had those. I baby motivating move. Oh Wow so have you. Could if you could describe your homework experience in one word.

"So I was like okay so the morning calm my friend leaves for flight and then the birth saga was here. Her baby with you go home. I don't really think of labor. The contraction slow down. I'm like it's okay and I was like you know what I started apologizing people again. I'm like this happened. I was in Pro Drama Label Labor with messy and You Know I. It's a two more weeks for the baby to come. I'm like maybe the hospital people were right and my do they really is will because that'll be about two weeks from now so. I'm like I'm not even in Labor. Just go home so I started putting people out And the do it like look. I'm going to leave but I heard you experts about the c section before you go to the hospital and get the C. Section. Can you call me and I was like okay. And she was like call one of your friends and just ask them to come and check on and I was like okay. I'll do that you know before I ultimately decided to go to the hospital. I was like because I'm tired. I haven't slept really. I've been up all night. I can't keep anything down. You know it's either coming up or coming out like I'm just I'm over it in the baby's not even GonNa come and like the baby's not even coming out. She's like okay so she lied. I don't know what time it was but the sun was up at this point. So maybe it was like maybe seven or eight but the sun was I remember that because they had gotten really bright in the house and I met and Like earlier in the night I was in the TUB but I didn't say that because I didn't like it so I got back in the TUB. I was Out of in the TUB when I was talking to the dual so I got out for a while so you know. Walk everybody down and you know. Walk around a little bit more. And then once people left the contraction started coming like crazy literally out have a contraction and by the time you know it was thought it was started up again and it was like like back to back back to back like. I don't even think it was thirty seconds in between each contraction right now who like. I couldn't catch my breath A. A panic like I started to. I don't know if hysterical is the right word but I definitely starts at panics on my okay. I just need to relax so I'm GONNA get back into Messy Pay Star of the show here. People Messy comes back upstairs. And she's like I'm like yeah mazzy and she's like Michigan. I'm like no you get a cheap pulled off all her clothes and she got into anyway. So I am in the hub with baby goo flirting around floating around in the tough and Mazzy is also in the tub so she was in the And then mental came and like like got her out of the loop. I don't really remember her getting out of the two but I remember her getting in this up and then like playing in the water so but I don't remember her getting out That's Kinda interesting. So she she I guess she got other so at some point and by this time I was upstairs so I was back on the toilet a little bit more just sitting there you know like just sitting on the on the toilet and There was this like hot pack that I was holding on my my like summit. My uterus area because the contractions were like so Winston. They were so quick. I couldn't catch my breath and I'm just like okay. All right the tools at this point they were allowed like it was like they had gotten louder or my hearing had turned up and I could hear everything in like everything like all of my senses. Were hiding and I'm like what is going on. So my mental. Call somebody and tell them to come and pick up their children like I need somebody to come and get them out of the house right now so he called him as he's got mom because this is Wednesday. Now remember the Tuesday morning. We're now Wednesday midday so Measures Guy Mom comes to get busy and I'm like also a midwife. I'm like just have checked me. So she comes in the bathroom on sitting on the toilet and she's like are you okay and I'm like this baby won't come out. I can't get this baby out. Just take me to the middle. And she says what the Fuck Shea no hospital. What and I'm like I don't know I like balling crying and I'm like I don't know I don't know she's like no no he's like. I'm to get this wondering together. I'm going to go downstairs. And that's the Oh my you just check me. Don't leave just check me. So she's like okay. Get up and sit on the side of the bed and remember. We had just moved our mashes on the floor because our bed was in transition so the matches long before I'm like leaning back on the matches and she literally didn't get her finger up there. She's like okay. Give me your hand and I gave her my hand and she liked took my pointing finger. And she's like do you feel that right there. That is a baby. And he's like I can literally see the top of this. They pay she's like all you got is push and I'm like I don't. I need section. I need that. And she's like okay. All right all right bye bye. So she led storms out and MS MS look comes back up there and apparently I think she told him just have relaxed due small like pushes like that to see the baby will come out because he was literally sitting right there and I'm on the toilet admits that got the Rebozo and we're like doing these small pushes and I'm trying to pull on the Rebozo and why I did not like that at all. It was absolutely terrible. And I'm like no no no so she. I don't know how much time is laughing between witching out like back and forth though she comes back up there then she's like what do you want to say and I'm like I want have this baby and she's like okay habit and I said I don't think my body knows how and she's like? Apparently it does. Because you're already here having they all you gotta do is push. I said I understand that but what I need is a nap. I'm tired I am so fucking tired. And that's what I told her just like that and she was like okay. This is where I want you to do after you have your next. Contraction laid down in the bed. Close Your eyes and get the best leap of your life. And I'm like okay. I can do that and I did exactly that. She leaves out most of like. Hey I'm going to step out for him. I'm like no no no. Don't leave me. Don't don't go anywhere. I want you to lay right here in the next to me. And we're GONNA sleep together so he says okay. I don't know actually late in the bed. I don't know if he like left out and came back but it seemed like between that contraction and the next interaction was a hundred hours. It seemed like the longest time in between those two contractions and I was able to like lay down. I think even like drifted off the sleep for a little bit and I was able to catch my breath and read you know because the contraction has slowed down long enough for me to really catch my breath and then at this point I like jumped up and I was like. Oh my God I gotTa Poop but I'm not gonNA make it in the bathroom. Get something to catch it pat and like slide it under me and I like in a hip hop out. He's.

Yes so we stay home and I was still piddling around the house like all day and I'll have the contraction that you know you stop and hold the wall and breathe and all of that and then my Dula came and checked on me and I was sitting with her. All of these lists of things that I needed. I gave her mama number. Meneses Mama's number the birth photographers number. This person number that person's number because I literally had a whole team and I need to be aware so She went and got this apple juice that I requested.

Grandma's hands Herbalism in the southern tradition. And the core we cooked food and part of one of the food items will be cook was green and they had their brains and they had molasses and Greens molasses they had Not The purple raises but the white raisins. I guess they would be the other reasons. I don't know that they were like yes. Yes no so. They had the raisins them But all of these things that were good for your eared so I was hell bent on having those because I know the my iron is Kinda funny and I was trying to be pro-active instead of reactive. You know the I had only get all of these things and Paul. Can we cut out? I'm I'M GONNA say all of that over and I want you to say illness name I I don't want in there and that's fine. Yes okay so play so I had argued all of these things you know that I wanted and all of that stuff. So she leaves And this whole time Got The ball rolling the ball on playing with Mazzy Kinda picked up big Kinda. Didn't they weren't getting more close together so I could tell like okay. Yeah I'm actually in labor but I wasn't like alarmed or panicked or anything like that but I did start to let people know. Now it's about six in the afternoon and I'm like okay now. I'm in Labor by this time my Dula have made it back. The other dual had made it back. My friend were here. The bird photographer. Rec- your everybody was here so by nine o'clock it was like a whole Party right. There was a houseful of people. And MENSA put on Baby Mama. So that's one of my favorite movies because it reminds me of my best friend and I'm Tina Fey and she is Amy Poehler so the movie on them like I feel like that's the moment that I knew that I was in labor because I don't know why I did that like I. It was just like this thing that just happened and I told them to call my friend like call cab. You know my best friend from the movie though. I don't remember talking to her. I don't remember saying anything or nothing like I don't remember anything about the conversation but I remember the like the is literally the last thing that I vividly remember. They'll go albums Earliest so I have a bird song for all of my well. Well now. Both of my bird and This one was. Bg Big Timer. So I was Planned that and dancing to it and all of these things and I feel like that was I duNNo. It was keeping me going and I was in the bathroom like on the toilet just sitting there. You know laboring on the toilet. I don't know why and then I started to poop and poop and poop and poop improve and I was like Oh God and it was like like death death. Yeah and I remember her with Manzi that When I poop like that I was in labor. Now I knew that like okay now. I'm in Labor. My Body's like cleaning itself out like okay so I was all the way repair and then I I was back and forth between like my downstairs bathroom and the couch so I will go to the couch and I will get up and Pete and I will go and then I remember one time I was like. Oh I'm so sorry appeared in the floor and I looked at the new. Lanao was like I'm so sorry because I knew that she was going to be the person to clean it up. You know because that's what I would have done so I'm like I'm so sorry. I'm like apologized. And she's like don't worry about it so The we're into the night. It was so many people had started to fall asleep and somebody was snoring and I was like back snoring. You know like the grumpy old person and I don't remember this but everybody else remember this but I was laying on the couch. I kept saying that I was cold so I had this huge blanket and it was over my head and I didn't want anybody else under the blanket. Not even remember but I want him to sit next to me but I was under the blanket and I was singing and at some point I think a lot. He pulls a blanket back so they could see you know going on but I don't remember that this is just how it was told to me and I was thinking and now thing is and I was rubbing my belly so I think I was saying to my baby but I do not remember that at all so at this point I feel like I was completely having you know the four of body experience. I have no idea what time it was or anything like that. And then I remember looking at the dual like data her face and saying no Janet Jackson. I don't know why the WHO came from we wondering living in the Janet Jackson and she was like okay. Everybody knowed Janet Jackson I was like. That's right. Mo- Janet jets so I don't know what Jackson no one at the time but apparently like when I was in Labor Benedict and was on my mind though. The dude is like maybe we should get up and walk a little bit She's and the way my kitchen is. Maybe you could walk in a third call from the hallway to the kitchen. So she's like. Let's walk in a circle three times. You know 'cause they kinda help get things going thaw said okay and I made it two times around and then I peed again in the floor and I'm like oh I'm just going to the toilet and I remember falling asleep like I was sitting on the toilet backwards and I had my elbows on the back of the toilet. And I fell asleep back there. And I was just chilling and back to the couch him back to the toilet and our lay on the couch and lay on the toilet and back and forth and then contractions had like slow all the way down like they were consistent but they were further apart. Because I was getting like one and two minutes apart now they were like four and five minutes apart. So I I I don't know it's just slow down so by this time it's early in the morning. It has to be maybe like five. Am One of my friends. That was here. She had to go catch a flight. Though she's like I'm sorry. You know I gotTA leaving my own. No is okay. I don't think I'm in labor anyway. Oh No let me go back. So before started putting people out I remember leaning over to Mensa and I told him I was like Hey. I literally whispered it to him because I didn't want anybody else here. But apparently it wasn't a with at all and I leaned over to him and I was like. Hey can we just go and get the C. Section? And nobody has to know we can tell them. We're just going for a drive and he's like okay in five minutes. I'm going to get everything ready and then we can go and I said Okay and I went back to sleep and I'm still waiting on in the five minutes calm so I could go get my c-section because that never actually happened.

"So if your if your baby has down syndrome like it doesn't affect the birth process 'cause I know when some kids have different When they're born different. You know some of them aren't able to pass through the vaginal canal so my understanding from what you're saying is that if the did have down syndrome they still would have come through the birth canal just like any other baby would under normal to my understanding. I was never told anything about a section or something that we have to do differently I was if I was to have him in the hospital. They just didn't want me to birth in the water But other than that. They never said anything about him. Being born not out of the vaginal canal bill there was never even a conversation. It never even came up even when I like like asked her out of my mouth like would something be differently. She told me no And so we was always going to be a vaginal birth. So that made me even more confident in my decision to stay home Wow Yeah but I don't I don't know that's very interesting because that's something that we don't know But to me she never said anything. Different and So after all of these things and going back and forth maybe about a month or a little over a month had pair and the testing came back and he tested negative for you know any quote unquote genetic abnormalities or down syndrome. Or anything like that. So he was Quote Unquote healthy. But they were still concerned about his size and they were giving me A date of March the twelve and then march the fourteenth and I told them lady lady busy baby is coming before March the twelve. I will not be probably come March as well and if I am you're pregnant Marshall Twelve. We got a problem. Okay like something is wrong here. Okay everyone like right. Yeah I'm like I'm tired Big pregnant like I'm not going to be pregnant. Marsh the twelve like if is no way and I kept telling them. The entire time with their dates were wrong. And she's like no I don't think so do his measurement and it kept basing it on his measurement. And I'm like lady. I'm five feet. My first baby was only four and a half pounds barely over that. I'm like maybe I just make small baby. And she's like no but at this day she should be bigger and. I'm just like you know what I'm done with you. I have to let you go for my own sanity so I stopped going to my prenatal visits at this point. I was maybe like thirty two thirty three weeks so I was right at the end anyway but I would like all the way down with her. I got things to do. We were moving like I just had to be done with her. And so that was the end of my like rain with the hostile and We moved into A different place and I remember being so excited to move. I was like packing up. I had all my boxes. I put missiles work this day. I put everything in a car. It was a Wednesday also import. It was a Wednesday. I put everything in the car and I. I got messy. I'm like I gave my brother-in-law for awhile like keeping busy. I came here. I put up the dishes. I put up close. I started taking things out like we had all the way on. Pack by the time Milton got home. He was like Oh wait a minute you wore serious and I was like yes that we hand. We went and got That Friday we went and got a table that Saturday. We went and got couch furniture. Sunday morning we moved Wednesday Okay Wednesdays and Fridays. The table came Thursday. The Washington dry came Saturday the couch furniture came Sunday morning. And so you know. I don't know I was looking at him and he looked good. And we are in our new plays and you know we're all in love and excited and I remember. It was like four in the morning and we were just We were cuddling on the couch. And I don't know he just really good so we decided to have sex and you normally like after six. I will have a few contractions and they will stop and it would just be like Braxton Hicks and I will keep you know about my normal life. Though this Sunday we have sick and then I started. You know the Braxton Hicks as usual so by now we're like we used to it right so I was thirty nine weeks and like full-blown pregnant at this point so mensah has brought me water. He's you know. Got The warm towel like on my belly's talking to the baby and the contractions never stopped and I'm just like okay so we done having said because this is I too painful no they kind of slowed down as the day went on but I wish I was still having at least two contractions every hour so but they never got close or consistent or anything like that so I really wasn't worried about. I never even thought that you know. I'm an early labor or anything like that but never crossed my mind. I didn't feel Dula. She actually came and saw me that Sunday. Like my Dula came and saw me that Sunday and I. I didn't even think the likes to her. Like Oh yeah. We're having contractions all day because I never thought about it and we were planning to meet again on Friday because she was gonna come and help me unpack the rest of my thing and I was going to get my hair. Braided that Wednesday Because it was right at my due date of what I said was my do day which was marked the third so Monday come around and the contraction I got more consistent like more closer together and I'm like okay I'm feeling a little funny today. Missiles like you want me to stay home from work. I said No. I don't want to say you know I'm okay so all day. the contractions. Were you know pretty consistent but not on bearable or anything like that. At this point I had fixed the due to just Blair or no like. Hey this is what's happening whatever And then Tuesday morning. I woke up with mental which I never do. Because you know he'd be his saying getting ready for work in the morning and I was just up I couldn't sleep I was still contracting. It was annoying because like you know they wouldn't get consistent and I went to the bathroom and are white and I told her I called Memphis name and I was like Mensa. And he's like yeah. He came in the bathroom and I showed him the tissue. And it was. You Know Mucus Plug and bloody show and all of that and he was like I guess I'm calling into work today and I say yeah. I wanted to call into work today. Well Okay I have a lot of questions so this is really awesome. Because it's very different from your first You know your Your birth of messy because remember from that story you were talking about how you can having like for drama. Labor like you know would start and stop for weeks and you kept thinking you were about the half the baby and then you didn't and now sound like you're just Kinda like whatever you know what was going on. Yeah Yeah and then my question is did you have the same Dula? Oh okay now. So you didn't have you can have right because Messa was Dula Right. Yes and I realized that there was a mistake. The first time y'all get y'all do locate your husband can I be do learn from Hamas a Dula and this time there was a Dula She brought someone. There was a burst petard her like. I literally had a team this time because I was like this is what happened last time and I did not like that and this is what I want this time so I literally had a team of people. Okay was no you. Were going to your. You're going to the midwives at the hospital for your prenatal care up until thirty two weeks when they kept saying you know Up until thirty two weeks because they said your baby was too small and they just kept putting all this fear into your right. So how'd you been getting concurrent care with a home birth midwife like what was that process like no? I didn't get any care with So I only went to the hospital this time which was different from messy because look messy. I got both This I don't know I just I didn't and like I got midwife friends though I would have been like check on me and stuff like that but other than that I didn't like regularly see A home birth midwife.

"This July July So wasn't posing like picking on my facebook or anything like that just instinctively wanted to high. I guess you could say So and that's because of the pregnancy was viable or do you just wanted your privacy. I just wanted my privacy. At that point I feel like he was here in his okay so I just I just wanted to hide. My didn't want anybody to know So I was about twenty three weeks. Maybe maybe even twenty five weeks somewhere between twenty three and twenty five weeks. I was finally like okay. Let me Let me go through the OBI and get an ultrasound because it in my head I knew I was having this baby at home sewing orders the have we might have to cross this hold on. Oh here maybe okay so to have my baby at home here Louisiana. You need An ultrasound like a pro. You know for proof of pregnancy so I went to go. Get the ultrasound You know just to have proof of pregnancy and all of that. I didn't question so yes room because people may not understand exactly what the proof of pregnancy is four. And I don't think I do either because I'm not in Louisiana but so is that to prove the pregnancy for insurance reasons or for the birth certificate like this for the certificate to prove that you were pregnant during these times and that baby came out of your uterus rattling the paperwork for the birth certificate. Then you know this is the date and time matchup. This bagels born. You know should be born around this time. They'll desolate pre pregnancy. Okay thank you So that was the only reason for me To wanting to go get the ultrasound done just so I would have it because I knew that I would need it. So I I went to get the ultrasound done I went to the midwives. Actually and you know we did all the you know all the things that they make you do when you go I did the same thing with Ms. e. You know went to the midwives away. I went to different midwives this time. Feeling the hospital but different midwives and They scheduled me for the ultrasound. Act FOR IT I also ask them like their protocol on breach baby because this was a different hospital and when she said Oh well we automatically fiction anybody. Who's a breach birth? I knew then I had already made up my mind. Come hell or high water. This base was gonna be warning home I just it wasn't a thought in my mind so I wanted to give the ultrasound. My baby was breached. That is not a joke. He how many we At that point I might have been like twenty five twenty six weeks somewhere and they're not not nerdy week yet but he was brooch so they do ultrasound. And they detected anomaly and anomaly in my baby's heart and his kidneys and in his bowel. So in those places They could be signs of Down Syndrome so we then had to deal with you. Know what if our baby has down syndrome you know. How severe could it be because they told us it could be as you know simple as seen lives and function you know normally is any quote unquote healthy? I don't like that term healthy child would or he could be wheelchair bound and would have to have a nurse and all of that forever you know for his entire life so that was like a huge thing and I felt like at that moment my entire life came to a halt because I want there to get the ultrasound and I was joking with mental mental. That work this day that the baby was breach. And you know now. They got me in this room to talk about breach babies but she was actually coming in to tell me that these markers Our genetic markers that could read this. You him for Down Syndrome and it was one other huge were that I can't remember the name of though we I was devastated. Like literally devastated. I didn't know what to do. You know because you start to blame yourself like what did I do what went wrong. How can I you know what what what can I do? Am I going to have to hire a nurse? Am I gonNA have to drop out of school like yeah? I'm like it's so many questions that go through your head and my I feel like my pregnancy took a huge hit because at first I was walking around like oh I'm not really pregnant and then I thought the pregnancy wasn't viable and now I'm finding out this huge news that could potentially you know something could be quote unquote wrong. I don't like that we're either with my baby so unlike Lord that I did. I wish that up you know did I wanted to do so. That was like a really huge thing and my pregnancy and I did not tell a single so The only person that knew was me. Mentha my mom and his mom And you know people had just started to figure out that was pregnant. Because I couldn't hide it any longer and and so now this and it was just it was huge and I feel like my pregnancy took a huge hit My nutrition had dropped a little bit. I have started to lag behind in school some I definitely think my mental hill took a huge hit. And it's something that we don't often talk about in pregnancy the state of your mental health. We wait to after you have the baby. Talk about You know mental health so it was like a huge thing for me and Mrs like doing all if he can. You know it's okay. He started researching things. This is how we can do this. You know it's okay. You're going to live a full life. He's going to be a whole person and he really helped me through that. Which is why I think it's great to have a supportive partner and support a family because Mensa kept me afloat. You know and We did all of this testing and I was. Everybody knows by now that I'm very anti hospital very anti system very anti if you don't know that okay. I'm very anti all of those things. So here we are at this crossroads and we had it. All of this blood work drawn all of Paperwork we knew all this testing all of these things and it was just a lot that was going back and forth for ultrasounds. I WANNA say like every three weeks and I was pushing it. They wanted me to come every week. I was one every three weeks so and then they started to see that he was growing small. He wasn't GonNa be an average five baby which is also another sign that he may be you know genetically disposition as they kept referring it to me you know as they kept saying to me so. I started the prepare myself. You know four in that and then between Memphis and I. It became a question of so in the event that this baby you know we can confirm that. He has down syndrome. Or some other genetic abnormality Are we going to have her baby at home and my answer was the same? Yes and after I have my baby and I get myself together. I'll be more than happy to get up and go to the hospital athletes but I still wanted to have my baby at home. That was important to me. I felt like if if he did have down syndrome. That was nothing we could do either way in the hospital or at home. He's he'll go have down syndrome. You know what I'm saying like there was an and I did ask her that like are. Is there something that you do? After he's born that makes a difference and she's just like no we just make sure. The baby has a thorough exam after he was born. So I was like well. If that's all you do I'm GonNa have my baby at home. I had decided that so I was on your phone book. Mama come hell or high water did your okay. I have a lot of questions I yes is. Did your midwives know that you were planning Homework the whole time. No the you never told him that. Nope okay second question So when you're asking them you know. What do you do different after his born? My question is.

And we're really excited to hear all about the bird Baby Messiah and we're so excited. He shared this easily with homecoming. And say I'll turn it over to you Yes thank you for having me back This is definitely my second recording on this show and technically. It's my first homework because you know. Measure was a transfer so she was technically born in the hospital. Though I'm officially a home birth Mama now Prenatally with well. This baby is four months now. His name is both Zion. Macaulay pounds And we are excited to have him Prenatally I like. My stories are really similar but completely different in a lot of ways at the same time This pregnancy world magazine was a plan pregnancy. We were tracking the cycle. And doing all of the things and with Motza. I is now become like a running joke but He wasn't directly playing. But I had started telling the Bat I really wanted to have a baby because I am with free school as you know people. Who are they show? I'm sure may nobody now That I wanted to have another baby because by the time my baby would be a year old then. I would be good to travel all over the world because I wouldn't be exclusively breastfeeding right but like no. We don't have another baby right now. We are not and I'm like no I am having another baby I'm having. I'm having another baby. So it was like this at art saying conduct but We weren't exactly planning for mosaic. In a way that we plan for men and So I think that I hope you can hear all the baby cooing in the back I think that's the biggest difference prenatally and then I think I got to a point where I was like okay. I don't WanNa have no baby like let's just wait. I can finish school and you know I can go on about my life and then like two weeks later. I was like I'm pregnant. I know I'm pregnant. I know I can feel it. I CAN SMELL IT I. I know I'm pregnant. I just know pregnant and I literally walked around for like a month and a half. I had not taken a pregnancy to I hadn't done anything but I had not had a cycle. I just knew that I was pregnant. I knew that I was pregnant and I kept telling me if I know I know when you smell it. Are you talking about your urine. No I mean just you know that though the black g where you go smell the rain on okay. The WHO different pregnant low no. Just I don't know I like just instinctively knew that I was pregnant so I'm like oh so I'm like okay. Let me stop playing around and this was like. Are you really? I'm like yeah I'm really pregnant. He was like you know what I think. You're pregnant too. So we went to the dollar store me recommend for people all the time I bought five pregnancy bid and Open two of them at the same time and peed in a cup. You know so I could put the P on both of the state because I needed to be sure. Be Sure No. The first one lit up like a Christmas tree and I was like. It's not even a need for me to do. The second one and I did not take another two because I already knew that I was pregnant. Already knew that I was pregnant so I called my friend. I'm like Laura. I don't know how far along I am. You know I know I had a few drinks here and there but you didn't so I was like going through all these things in my head and I'm like oh Lord so I went to this little by the wayside clinic. You know those clinics That they got in the back of every town where you could go and get a little pregnancy test and they pray for you and actually you know about the Lord and all of those now one in the world. We found one in New Orleans. That does ultrasound. Because that's what I want it. Because according to my calculations I could have been about eleven weeks pregnant. Oh Wow yes. But that just didn't seem right and then we tried to listen and at that point. You should be able to hear some pain. No we couldn't hear anything so unlike. Oh Lord is this pregnancy non viable like. What's going on like I know that I'm pregnant but we couldn't hear anything though unlike. Okay okay I just need a ultrasound so I could see what's going on and then I started fighting and now I'm like okay so I think you know little baby wasn't ready you know. He knows that I'm still kind of on the fence. A little bit so maybe he just not ready so I had started preparing myself for the worst and at this point. I hadn't told anybody so him. Mentha don't kill anybody. I hadn't told us. Oh though you know it was just between us. So I'm like okay baby and I remember telling him ready. Come on you know. I'm ready for you to but it's not then that's fine too because Momma got screwed so just decide what you're going to do so we went to the little clinic and she gave a an ultrasound and he was definitely there I just wasn't as far along as I thought so. I was only about seven weeks. I think I was seven weeks and three days. This is going to be important at. The end of the story puts my day at me. Y'All know I gotta use everything for a teaching moment. There's put my day and marsh the third according to the dating ultrasound our propel and so I wasn't Almost twelve weeks. You know like I thought it was GONNA be 'cause I thought I was about twelve and a half weeks but I was about seven weeks in three days according to their ultrasound or maybe seven weeks and two days but still not nearly as far. So I'm like okay great so I stay pregnant or absolute ever and I did not say a word anybody. Nobody knew that I was reading I told a few people isis. You're one of the few people that I told remember at soccer that day. So you knew. And maybe like three or four. Other people knew It but I just. I didn't know anybody I like. You know just my very close intimate. And they were all births friends. They weren't even like my friends. And you know actual life that you go to the club with friends but just you know the circles of friends I do. It is it definitely is and I but I only told my birth friends because I felt like they understood and nobody said anything. That was not a word. All of my pictures you can start to see like my belly pop out a little bit and people were just like. I don't know if she gained weight. Or what but. I was starting to hide my belly like you know it was still kinda warm outside while wooden on it.

Rose if you're joining us for the first time at homecoming we celebrate the stories of black families who give birth at home as you may know home birth takes on many forms and that can be a plan home birth and unplanned Home Birth. A midwife assisted home birth or an unassisted home birth. Today we're going to be focusing on unassisted humber and not just any unassisted home. Birth this is shaped pounds. Unassisted Home Birth. And she's exclusively sharing her birth story for the first time publicly on this platform so we are so grateful and indebted to her when this interview was recorded. Mo- Ziya Baby. Messiah was four months old now. He's almost a year old when this episode is published. It'll be either. His birthday are almost his birthday so happy. Birthday mosaic. We Love Shea on this show.

Birth story for our first time listeners shea is a student midwife a Dula a mother a wife a sister a friend she is just a beautiful beautiful person so we honor her today. And I'm so glad that you are part of this. Show thank you thank you. Thank you real quick. I want to read a little bit from true. Kelman's most reset book a Black Woman's guide to homer so according to midwife true unassisted childbirth refers to the process of intentionally giving birth without the assistance of a medical birth attendant. It may also be known as a free birth. Diy Or do it yourself. Birth unhindered birth and unassisted birth. I've also recently heard it called family. Birth the fact that normal birth doesn't need assistance results in the safety net of having a skilled professional birth attendant such as a midwife just being helpful and perhaps wise in case assistance was necessary is a great opinion and a hard truth of many who support unassisted and partner lead births partner. Lead BIRTH IS ONE. A partner or spouse leads the prenatal care and birth as a non professional or skilled birth attendant. True also says unassisted. Births are not often recommended as birth options as it is not for every woman and every woman should not fall on board with the quote unquote. Woo Vibes. That anyone can do it sometimes. Unassisted births happened while a woman is waiting for her midwife to arrive while on the way to the hospital or at the last minute due to no one being able to take the woman to a nearby hospital. However in this chapter true talks about planned unassisted births which have a far different concept from precipitous. Births that just happened to be unplanned and this is from page one. Seventy six also. I have a book here. Called the unassisted baby and so the author. Anita Evanson says there are numerous reasons why women choose to give birth unassisted while you may have a lack of other home birth options so meaning there are no midwives to attend home births in your state. Because it's not legal. You may choose unassisted job earth for one or more of these reasons to take control of your birth limit or eliminate interventions bond with your baby connect with other family members. Have a stress free birth support breastfeeding or. Just choose gentle ways to give birth that you might not find an alternative settings. So that's a little bit about unassisted childbirth. They're definitely online groups and forums. That you can join. If you're interested to learn more about that. Okay back to Shay so Shay says that this is her first official home birth and if she could describe her birth and one word it would be love. And that's very fitting because I loved hearing her story not just because she is the Co host of homecoming podcast. I Love Her story because it is full of ups. Downs TWISTS AND TURNS AND DETERMINATION. Because she said she was having her baby at home. Come hell or high water. We heard the birth of Shay's firstborn daughter mazzy season one episode for Shea ended up transferring after after discovering irregular heart tones and that magazine had turned shave birth. Her breach baby vaginal in the hospital with no medication but when she became pregnant with her son she was ready and willing to have the home birth that she so desired. Shea is very animated and there are a couple of F. bombs in the show so please be advised. Here's our conversation.
