Episode 38: "We Can Do Hard Things" with Stasia Savasuk of Thrift Me Pretty

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!
