“When I noticed the amniotic fluid (amniotic fluid), it is thought that it flows from a client to give birth, said Jacobs. But then I realized it was mine.”

The midwife believes that her unique history of childbirth made her a better doctor who is “more aware” of their future patients: “It’s definitely made me more empathetic and more knowledgeable about how it happens.”
