Today I was SO inspired by Samantha Broyles Birth and Postpartum stories. Samantha is the blogger behind All About Baby's World and a mom of two girls. In her episode, we talk about how she went from having a breech caesarean in the hospital to delivering her second daughter as a VBAC at home and what went into making that happen. We discuss the challenges of tandem nursing and how she's making that work with her 2 1/2 year old and 3 month old. I love what she said about breastfeeding being natural but not always easy. This is so true and a reason to always ask for help. Seeing a lactation consultant or La Leche League leader can make all the difference. Samantha's strength in truly advocating for herself and her maternal healthcare is inspiring.
You can find out more about her blog and the types of baby products she reviews, check out All About Baby's World.
