Mama Natural shares her two birth stories
Genevieve’s first labor with her son, Griffin, was long (27 hours with 4 hours of pushing,) and she had a hard postpartum recovery. With her second pregnancy, Genevieve was proactive in preparing for birth and credits her nutrition and healthy lifestyle to the super-quick and much easier birth of her daughter, Paloma.

Peppered throughout are positive birth and pregnancy stories from women of all backgrounds (and all stages of their natural journey,) along with advice and insights from: a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM); a Registered Nurse (RN); a doula; and, a lactation consultant.
Vital Proteins helps people feel better and live fuller lives through sustainably-sourced nutrition products, and promotes health by providing nourishing collagen: an essential nutrient stripped from our diets by modern food-processing.
Vital proteins collagen is a tasteless powder you can add to any beverage to help you reach those daily protein goals, especially during pregnancy. Of course, you should always check with your doctor before taking anything. At the end of this episode, I chat with today’s guest, Genevieve, about the benefits of vital proteins, and how she uses it in her diet and with her kiddos!
