I have another wonderful birth story episode for you today! This time, we're joined by Savanna, a Physician Assistant and mom of one who lives in Georgia with her family.
Savanna had a relatively uneventful pregnancy and scheduled her induction around 40 weeks. After being induced, her labor only lasted about 12 hours in total. Once her baby was born, however, things got a bit more interesting.
Savanna dealt with some postpartum health issues that we chat about in today's episode, including postpartum preeclampsia and mastitis. We talk about some warning signs to look out for and why it's so important to listen to your body and advocate for yourself if something doesn't feel right. We also chat about learning to breastfeed and the impact med students and residents had on Savanna's birth.
