Hello all! Welcome to Thinking Positive with Jessie and Hannah.

We aim to be a source for reliable, relatable, and positive information through all parts of pregnancy and motherhood. Join us every Friday as we cover all things birth/women's health!

    Megan's Birth Story

    Megan's Birth Story

    Aaaand, we're back! 



    After a week hiatus, we bring you Megan Melvin's birth story. 

    Megan labored with her son for several hours before being rushed into an emergency cesarean. This episode may scare some women, but we believe hearing a variety of stories, with positive outcomes, is the best way to prepare for the birth experience. 



    We hope you enjoy this weeks episode!

    Postpartum Depression Journey

    Postpartum Depression Journey

    Happy Friday everyone!



    This week we have a long-y, but a good-y. Jessie and I were able to sit down with Aly, the founder of an organization called PPD Journey. 

    Aly shares her own experience with postpartum depression, and walks us through the different ways this condition can manifest in people. 

    Approximately 1 in 7 women are affected by this, and 1 in 4 men experience this as well. Tune in this week to learn more!



    Trigger Warning: 

    In this episode we discuss postpartum depression. Please use discretion/best judgement.

    Aly's Birth Story

    Aly's Birth Story

    Week 11?! Can you believe it, because we can't. 

    This week we talk with Aly Thayer about the pregnancies and births of her two daughters. 

    Aly had two very different experiences although, both ended up being cesareans. We get very real about the fear of the unknown associated with having an unplanned c-section, and the dreaded "after birth poop" we've all read about online in this episode. 

    Thanks for listening!
