Episode 29: Preparing for Postpartum and Letting Go of Perfectionism with Kirsten Brunner

Today I chat with Kirsten Brunner of Baby Proofed Parents. On top of running this awesome and helpful blog for new parents, Kirsten is an actively practicing licensed professional counselor and mom of two rambunctious boys. In her episode we chat about:

  • How she came to create Baby Proofed Parents
  • Early breastfeeding troubles
  • A huge plug for Brian the Birth Guy who will be another guest on the show this spring
  • The importance of taking a "self inventory" of yourself for postpartum BEFORE birth
  • Letting go of perfectionism in motherhood
  • The importance of taking care of yourself and your relationship with your partner

As was mentioned in the episode, Kirsten also offers skype consultations for those who aren't in Austin, Texas, so feel free to reach out to her!  Enjoy!
