In this episode, Jacqueline is joined by Stephanie King. Stephanie is passionate about empowering women through knowledge to trust in their bodies and the process of birth. Stephanie is a mom of 3 all born very differently, plus a bonus girl. She’s a professional childbirth educator, doula, and host of the Pregnancy and Birth Made Easy podcast and creator of the online course My Essential Birth.

As an expecting mother, we spend so much time preparing for pregnancy and labor, that we oftentimes find ourselves very unprepared and lost when it comes to postpartum and breastfeeding.

In this show, we talk about:

  • How Stephanie’s births impacted her and how that informs her work today
  • Things to consider when creating your birth plan and designing your breastfeeding and postpartum experience
  • What informed consent really is and why it’s important
  • Why moms end up with grief surrounding their birth and what to do about it
  • The power of finding a powerful and intentional community around breastfeeding
