Today's episode is perfect for new parents, soon-to-be parents, and, honestly, all parents to take a moment and reflect. Today, we welcomed Finding Your Village Podcast host Amanda Gorman. Amanda is a wife, mother of 2, and a childbirth education mentor.
Today we discussed preparing for childbirth, the 4th trimester, parental mental health, and much more. What else? Great question; we discussed the transition periods from 0-1, 1-2, 2-3, and some of the challenges in each phase. Amanda educates us on the L.E.A.P. The four phases of preparing for a child: Learning, Emotional Prep, Admin, and Products. Honestly, that was my favorite part.
