The Birthful Podcast: Episode #131

For as much as birth stories get shared far and wide, things seem to go radio-silent when it comes to the postpartum period. It can be hard to determine when they begin and when they end, and they also tend to be much messier to recount. However, there’s much value to be found in sharing and hearing these stories. Chaya Kasse Valier tells us more. Check it out.
