Ep# 164 – Changing the Way we Birth with Jerusha Sutton

Ep #159 – It’s not about self-care anymore

Many years ago, I started with self-care. At the time, it was the only way I could see my way out of where I was: deep in mamahood. But it was also the only answer there was. We didn’t understand why we felt the way we did as women and mothers. Back then, we thought…
