The postpartum planning experience in America is a common topic in mom conversation. That can encompass care (or the lack thereof), a wide range of emotions, and a variety of mental health challenges that so many of us have struggled with.
Our guest, Sierra Yancy, is a certified perinatal doula specializing in childbirth education and doula training with Uzazi Village in Kansas City, Mo. She helps us dive into postpartum expectations and how to plan for that fourth trimester.
We also interview HCA Midwest Health specialist in women’s care, obstetrician-gynecologist Dr. Thomas Greaves, about how our partners can be supportive during this time.
