I was trying to get some Thai food, I wasn’t trying to go to the hospital to have a baby!
Jordan and Sophie welcome their very first guest, Rachel Arias, who shares the story of the birth of her daughter in February 2022. Rachel made for a wonderful and thoughtful first guest as she is a perinatal mental health therapist and reflected on her own struggle with anxiety during pregnancy and postpartum. This episode contains a birth story which includes the vaginal birth of a single baby in a hospital setting, use of medical induction techniques, as well as sensitive themes including mother-baby separation, brief baby NICU stay, and mother health complications including high blood pressure.To learn more about Rachel Arias’ perinatal therapy services, please visit https://www.rachelariastherapy.com/.Website: bearingbirthpodcast.comInstagram: @BearingBirthPodcastEmail: firstname.lastname@example.orgFree Bearing Birth Podcast Resources Birth Planning GuidePostpartum Support PlanPerinatal Resources & Information To learn more about Jordan or her work as a postpartum doula, family photographer, or infant sleep specialist: bunandbundle.com To learn more about Sophie or her work as a perinatal mental health therapist: midmaplestherapy.com Share your birth story!If you are interested in sharing your birth story with our podcast, please get in touch via email or DM us on Instagram!
