S1E15 Dez Season Finale
Dez is the co-host of Crisco, Dez, and Ryan on KS95 in Minneapolis. She shares what happened in her first birth that caused her complications during her second. A word of warning her second birth was traumatizing, but we also talk about why this information is important to share.
Shannon is part of the duo "Haley and Michaels" she shares what it was like being pregnant for the first time, getting ready to play C2C in the UK when the world shut down, the show was cancelled, and a travel ban was coming. She also shares what it was like witnessing the birth of three siblings at a young age. This episode is so fun and her birth story with baby Keira is beautiful,
Kate has had the unique experience of both a hospital birth and a home birth. She talks about her experiences with each one and the game changer for her which includes using a high dose vitamin c during her pregnancy and the Bradley method.
Molly is a competitive figure skater who shares her emotional journey of taking legal action against a fertility clinic who botched her IUI process. She was told her baby may have a fatal heart condition and had stopped growing in the womb. Her story is filled with so much hope and determination I hope you will feel incredibly inspired by her.
CiCi and I spent a lot of time talking about pregnancy anxieties and the things no one told us about during and after pregnancy. She also talked about her feelings as a black woman, pregnant with a black son after George Floyds murder. These convos can be hard to have sometimes but they are important and I really learned a lot from this episode.
Heather had the idea of the perfect home water birth and as they say when it comes to birth, prepare to be unprepared.
