Giving birth to our daughter Vienna was the greatest accomplishment of my life so far. In episode 5 of the Joyous Health Podcast, Walker and I dig deep and give you the play by play of bringing Vienna into this world.
To paraphrase a quote from an amazing book called Birthing from Within, it's work, it's gonna hurt but it will be worth it. I never knew how much my mom loved me until I had a child of my own :) The photo below is about two hours after giving birth. I've never been so tired, so relieved and so happy at the same time. I think Walker and I sobbed more than Vienna when she was born, but more on that in the podcast!
