This episode is packed full of 2 birth stories. First, Julie walks us through being a party girl after a massive trauma in her life. She was pregnant after only a few dates with her now husband. We chatted and laughed about dating while pregnant. The conversation turns into the murder of her dad and needing a trauma informed birth team. She shares about changing plans from unmedicated birthing to an epidural and then what postpartum depression and anxiety looked like for her. Julie came on the Birth Story Podcast to help other mothers understand the delicate symptoms of PPD and PPA and when medications like Zoloft can help. 6 years later she becomes pregnant again with her second after marrying her husband. She was taking an antidepressant and wanted an unmedicated birth at a birth center. So how did it go....you will have to listen!
