BeHerVillage was featured on the WEEK BY WEEK Podcast. This podcast is a once a week recorded and produced podcast during founder Celeste Busa’s pregnancy journey. The conversation between Kaitlin McGreyes, founder of BeHerVillage and Celeste took place in week 25 of Celeste’s second pregnancy. This was a candid and honest conversation between two mothers who have experienced the spectrum of emotion in pregnancy, birth, and postpartum: support, loneliness, joy, rage, exhaustion, and more.
The main points they covered were:
- The importance of community support
- Self-advocacy during pregnancy and birth
- How to plan around the uncontrollable aspects of birth
- Recognizing healthy rage in new (and seasoned) motherhood, and how to give ourselves grace
Of course, every pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience is unique. However, learning from seasoned parents and birth workers can offer insight and advice into what can feel like uncharted territory. The more parents are prepared for what’s in store– physically, emotionally, and mentally– the easier it can be to navigate with tools and support put in place ahead of time.
