Hello my friends! I learned so much on this episode and can't wait to share Jess's story. Jess shares her experience with pregnancy, childbirth, and the identity shifts she experienced after her child was born. She touches on the cliche yet crucial adage, "it takes a village," and how waiting until she was older to have a child helped her to lead from the heart rather than from her ego.
There is so much information, opinions, and fear-mongering out there when it comes to childbirth. Jess and I explore the fear, guilt, and shame that is so prevalent in the mothering world, and how she coped with all the "what-ifs," and "should haves." Jess is so generous to share some advice for anyone considering having a child, whether you are the one giving birth or a supportive partner in the process.
The midwife's name and book that Jess shares in this episode is Ina May's Guide to Childbirth.
