    How do we find our worth or value or is there more to it?

hahfirnehafafynn ,

not alone!

A big Thank you to this podcast- your real & even at times funny words that helped through some tough mental battles.

I found Lara’s birth story 1 year postpartum and I needed to hear that I wasn’t the only one that had a traumatic first birth.

It’s horrible the amount of people with Birth Trauma but now I know I’m not alone and it does get better.

No one story is the same, thanks for the insight and facts.

Raw and empowering!

Thank you for giving voice to all the things mums encounter…in a raw, honest, encouraging and empowering way! I really appreciated the episode about women’s health and using a pessary. Something we don’t hear or talk much about, but how essential it is to build awareness and empowerment around this!! Thank you!
