Ep. 18: First vs. second children, COVID babies, and SPD w/ Joanna

In today’s episode, Joanna shares her experience of having a COVID baby while also working in public health on COVID response (her story is wild!) We also cover:

  • Differences between her first and second pregnancy and birth (and how we forget everything so the human race can carry on)
  • Pregnancy and birth complications such as low fluids, group strep B, and forceps deliveries — and what she wishes she’d known. 
  • The 3 questions you can ALWAYS ask during birth if you feel pressured into an intervention.
  • How to find out everything you really need before leaving the hospital.
  • Pubic bone pain during pregnancy, or SPD. 

We also referenced Brené Brown’s Daring Greatly (on audiobook)  and Aziz Ansari’s book Modern Romance
