Show Notes

Preparing for postpartum to best support Mum, Dad and Baby. 

In today’s episode I’m joined by my partner Tyson Venables. We are sharing out approach to preparing for the postpartum period (which is defined as the first 6 weeks post-birth). 

This is a really raw episode. We talk about the practical things we did to support ourselves and to aid in the birth recovery. As well as diving into the challenges that we faced with sleep deprivation and the grieving process of letting go of our old way of being. 

The Dad’s perspective on postpartum is really missing and Tys shares honestly the struggles he faced and the things he did to support himself and both River and I. 

We dive into intimacy after birth. How we supported our nutritional needs. What I did to physically recover from birth. Why we asked for no visitors for at least 30 days. Lessons around setting boundaries.  Why we spent so much time naked and so much more!

It’s a juicy one. Share it with your partner!
