When You Have a Baby: An Interview on Prenatal and Postpartum Support with Alise Marsh
If you’ve been following me on my motherhood journey for some time, then you probably know that I am a HUGE fan of all things birth, which is why the conversation you’re about to listen to with my new friend Alise Marsh was such a special treat for me! Alise is a wife, mama, childbirth educator, doula, and fellow podcaster, and she has so much wisdom and experience when it comes to childbirth, educating and advocating for yourself in birth, and taking care of yourself postpartum. I love hearing how she’s using her passion and knowledge to equip and empower women, and I just know you will, too!
In today’s episode, Alise and I chat about:
her journey through the world of birth as a mom, childbirth educator, and doula
the importance of educating yourself on your labor and birth choices
the role of a doula and why women may want one during their labor
the struggle and importance of finding a community of support as a new mom
her best wisdom for how new moms can take care of themselves after birth
resources for women who need physical or emotional support in the postpartum period
