The Postpartum Podcast

In this biweekly podcast, Kellie Edson, childbirth educator-in-training chats with both birth professionals and regular moms about all aspects of the transition to parenthood. Whether this is your first child or your tenth, I hope that you gain new knowledge, insights or just plain old comfort from this twice per month show. This podcast was born out of the belief that with each child born, a mother is born (or reborn) and that transition in all of its messy, beautiful chaos deserves to be honored, supported, and celebrated.

I so loved chatting with Stasia Savasuk about her birth and postpartum stories! Her stories are so amazing and powerful and she is just such a wonderful and inspiring person. She also blogs at Thrift Me Pretty and hosts Stasia’s Style School, “A 5-week online class and lifelong sisterhood that will teach you how to identify YOUR own personal and unique style so you can be the BRAVE BOLD BEAUTIFUL woman that you are…EVERY. DAMN. DAY!”

In her episode we talk about:

·      Two amazing birth stories! Her daughter has some genetic abnormalities and her son was nearly an 11lb natural birth!

·      How having a daughter with physical anomalies allowed her to change her own body image issues and how that led to the formation of Stasia’s Style School

·      The stories that our closets hold

·      How terrible the doctor treated her in describing her daughters unique features right after she was born and how all she saw was perfection.  This was the moment she became a mother.

·      How advocating for her child probably saved her life.

·      Pumping Exclusively for 18 months with her daughter

·      How empowered she felt after delivering her nearly 11lb son when her doctors were positive she was going to need a c-section

·      And SO much more!

 

Be sure to sign up to receive an email when the next round of Stasia’s Style School opens SOON and check out Stasia’s blog, Thrift Me Pretty.
