Episode 2: FT Sam Rodriguez & Catherine Stewart-Lindley

Meet Me For Lunch Podcast

In this episode for lunch, the crew sits with music producer manager, Sam Rodriguez & birth worker (Doula), Catherine Stewart-Lindley. Sam shares his experience having a baby in the middle of the 2020 pandemic as a minority in America. His experience takes a turn when his girlfriend is pressured to have a cesarean (C-section) over natural birth. About 1 in 3 American babies are born via cesarean. And, according to a 2017 Consumer Reports study, about 26 percent of healthy women with low-risk pregnancies and full-term babies positioned headfirst— and therefore typically considered equipped to deliver vaginally—end up undergoing c-sections. Catherine, who has more than 20 years of experience in child birth is completely taken back by Sam’s experience and explains why doctors prefer cesarean (C-section) over natural child birth.
