What To Do When You’re Having Two
You’re so right, that we need to advocate for mommies understanding what’s going on in situations! It sounds like you’re doing the hard work of loving yourself, listening to your needs as you process the surprising parts of your birth. Healthy babies and moms are awesome, but birth stories are more than just that. Thanks for your courage in sharing yours!
Julie, I loved listening to your story! I loved your honesty and your humor throughout sharing your story. It’s awesome you are in a position where you get to encourage expecting/new parents because your passion for loving and caring for labor/parenting came through in this podcast!
