I'm so happy to be bringing you an uplifting birth story episode today, and this one was particularly fun. This time I'm talking with Emilee Wilson, a health coach and mom of two (soon to be three!).
Emilee was pregnant with her first baby at just 19, an experience that completely reshaped her worldview. After having what she called "an unhealthy pregnancy" and being induced due to preeclampsia, Emilee committed to her health in a new way in the postpartum period.
In this episode Emilee talks about her first pregnancy and birth, the health changes she made after her son arrived and how that pregnancy changed her approach to her second and now third pregnancies. We discuss her decision to become a health coach and why she wanted to have unmedicated births, and Emilee also shares how she deals with some of the guilt around her first pregnancy and her advice for other moms.
