Hey Mamas! Welcome back to the So You Had A Baby Podcast, I am your host Krista and this is episode 50! First of all, can you believe I am 50 episodes in and have been doing this podcast for almost 2 ½ years?! Honestly, I am so grateful for the opportunity to talk to so many amazing women who inspire me and help me grow! And I am grateful for all of you, my amazing listeners who are along for the ride and support me and take the time to listen! Doing this podcast brings me so much joy! And truly hope you are as empowered in your motherhood journey as I have been! Ok with that being said, this week's guest is a wonderful woman and friend who I have been so excited to have on! This week I am joined by Tracey Biebel. Tracey is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a private practice in Portland, OR. For the past 20 something years, she has been helping individuals, couples, and families find more joy and connection in the lives they are living. She lives with her partner, and their combined 4 kids ages (6, 12, 15, 18), 2 dogs, 4 chickens, and 2 rabbits. Prior to COVID, she often left the house to lift heavy things at the gym, perform improv comedy on various stages about town, go on long unmasked walks with friends, and simply be alone. She is funny, real, and a wealth of knowledge. Her story had me in tears (of laughter and sadness) and is not a story that you hear as often, as she shared both her biological and adoptive postpartum stories. I enjoyed talking with her so much and I know you will as well, so enough of me, let's get into it! Be sure to check out Tracey's website for amazing family and parenting resources!

Ep. 49 | Transformation in Motherhood with Whitney Poma, Founder of Momful
Hey Mamas! Welcome back to the so you had a baby podcast, I am your host Krista and this is episode 49. As we all know breastfeeding is not an easy journey for every mama and truth be told a lot of women struggle in the beginning and sometimes longer. Some decide it's not for them and some women breastfeed successfully for years. There is no right or wrong but there is something that every mom can benefit from in their breastfeeding journey and quite honestly their postpartum journey and that is nutrition. This week I am joined by Whitney Poma. Whitney is the founder of Momful - nourishing moms on their breastfeeding journey. Whitney's personal struggle with breastfeeding led to her to find an overlooked solution to the common challenge of breastfeeding: her nutrition. Her obsession with reducing the obstacle of breastfeeding in a new mom's journey led her to create a product line aimed at helping breastfeeding moms recover postpartum while also making nutritious milk for their little ones. Whitney believes that health for mom and baby shouldn't be a luxury which is why Momful donates one product for every five purchased. I am so grateful to have been able to talk with Whitney and hear her story. Her passion for helping mamas thrive in motherhood is inspiring and I am so excited for you to learn all about her and her amazing company, Momful. So, without further ado, let's jump into the episode! Be sure to follow Whitney on all of her social accounts!

Ep. 46 | Sleeplessness in Motherhood with Rachael Classi, Founder and CEO of Tiny Earth Toys
Hey Mamas! Welcome back to the so you had a baby podcast, I am your host Krista and this is episode 46. This week I have the honor of being joined by Rachael Classi.

Rachael and her husband Peter live in Durham, NC with their two daughters, Donna and Lucia, and can usually be found hiking the trails at Occoneechee or having an 80s dance party in their living room. I have to say when I first found out about Rachel’s business Tiny Earth Toys, I was so excited about the concept of what she’s doing, that I realized I had to have her on. As a mom myself, the idea of being able to have toys that are sustainable, educational, and fun for my daughter was so exciting, but even more exciting was the idea that I would be able to send the toys back once they were no longer beneficial for her age group. Rachel and her team are doing incredible things and she is just so interesting and so much fun to talk to you. I’m so excited for you to learn about her incredible business and hear her story!

Ep. 41 | Nourishment in Motherhood with Naturopath and Nutritionist, Dr Angela Potter
Hey Mamas! Welcome back to the So You Had A Baby podcast episode. 41. This week I am thrilled to be joined by Dr. Angela Potter. Dr. Potter is a leading holistic doctor supporting mothers in their healing process after birth. After the birth of her first baby, she came face-to-face with the hardships mothers frequently experience after giving birth. She was amazed at how much pressure is put on mothers and how little support is given for whole-body wellness in this very unique time in a woman’s life. From there she developed her Postpartum Wellness Protocol that she uses with mothers nationally. Dr. Potter has been interviewed for Healthline.com for postpartum-specific articles. She is a nutritionist as well as a doctor. Her office is located in Portland, Oregon where she lives with her husband and two toddlers. Her passion for serving women throughout pregnancy and postpartum are so evident in our conversation. Not to mention she was a wealth of knowledge and so much fun to talk with. Unfortunately, I know first hand that most mamas, both new and experienced, aren't given the tools we need to thrive in motherhood but I can confidently say that after this episode you will definitely feel more prepared and able to thrive, I know I did!

Krista: Hey mamas welcome back to the So You Had a Baby Podcast, episode 38! Today we’re finishing off our body changes series with a very important and underserved topic, the vagina and pelvic floor. There’s so many changes that happen in the woman’s body and for many of us, the most impactful changes that we experience we don’t always talk about, for example, the changes that take place in our pelvic floor and the vagina. So we thought it would be great to have an expert come on and help educate us. Nikki: Dr. Lisa Jewell is a Chiropractor and soon-to-be mama located in Portland, OR. She holds specialties in Webster, Craniosacral, Pelvic Floor Rehab, Diastasis Recti Rehab, Active Release, and Instrument Assisted Myofascial Release in conjunction with Chiropractic Adjustments, and likes to give her patients the tools to take charge of their own health. --- Thank you for listening to this episode!

Nkiru: Hi everyone, Welcome back to the So You Had a Baby podcast episode 26! Before we get started with today’s episode, we wanted to share a sweet review from one of our listeners, jordandiane26. She says, “Listening to this podcast has been so helpful for me as I prepare for my journey into motherhood. I have found each episode to be so helpful in offering many perspectives on the postpartum period. I also very much appreciate the focus on positivity and giving yourself grace! I would recommend anyone who is pregnant, wanting to become pregnant, and especially those who already have kids to take a listen!” Krista: Shoutout to jordandiane26 and thank you for taking the time to review our podcast, If you are listening and like what you hear, drop us a review. And if you want to know when a new episode airs, click the subscribe button. Now, let’s jump into today’s episode. --- Nkiru: Lauren Woodworth and Chandler Lettin were introduced by a mutual friend in 2015 when they were living parallel lives, both pregnant and in the throes of enormous home remodeling projects. After having their babies and the dust had settled, literally, Lauren and Chandler began seriously discussing what it would take to start a company together. Fast forward three years later in March 2019, the two ladies officially launched AVYN, an athletic nursing bra company. The way they put it is, “Together they are tackling this business venture the way they tackle motherhood- figuring it out as they go, making mistakes, and having fun in the process.” Krista: We had so much fun talking to Lauren and Chandler today. Their postpartum journeys were so different and they both shared such wonderful perspective and advise that I know all mamas listening will find value in. Also,  I personally loved their mom hacks and can't wait for you to hear them! As if that wasn't enough, they created such an amazing product that you definitely need and we know you will love.

Ep. 23 | Identity Shifts in Motherhood with Kate Westervelt, Founder & CEO of MomBox
Nikki: Hello everyone! And welcome to the So You Had a Baby Podcast, Episode 23! Today we will be chatting with Kate Westervelt. Kate is the Founder & CEO of MOMBOX and mama to one child with another on the way. MOMBOX is a women’s wellness company on a mission to take better care of new moms during the postpartum recovery period. Kate created this company after buying postpartum care essentials in the grocery store shortly after giving birth, and desired  to provide the convenience of a postpartum care kit so other mamas wouldn’t have to make the trip to the store as well.

Welcome to the So You Had A Baby Podcast! We are your hosts Nkiru & Krista and we will be sharing empowering stories and topics to inspire women to grow and love themselves more throughout their postpartum journey. --- Krista: Hi everyone! We want to start off by saying a HUGE thank you to everyone who has taken the time to listen to our podcast, or follow us on social media. The support and love has been overwhelming and we are so grateful for you all!   Nkiru: Totally agree, it really does mean so much and we cannot thank you enough and are so appreciative of you following along with us in this journey. A huge part of our podcast are interviews focused on entrepreneur women and moms who have created successful businesses and also have their own postpartum story to share. Today, I’m very excited to be interviewing Krista Kahmann, my rockstar co-host, an extraordinary human being who also owns her business as a License Massage Therapist and Certified Infant Massage Instructor. Listen in as Krista shares her postpartum story and gets real with her struggles, how she overcame them, and exactly what helped her through it all. Lastly, Krista shares her absolute favorite mom hack and so much more. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did! ---- CONNECT WITH US: Instagram: @soyouhadababypodcast  Website: www.soyouhadababypod.com  If you want to hear more and be a part of this community, subscribe to our podcast!

Ep. 01 | Postpartum Expectations vs. Reality
Welcome to the So You Had A Baby Podcast! We are your hosts Nkiru & Krista and we will be sharing empowering stories and topics to inspire women to grow and love themselves more throughout their postpartum journey.  We're really excited to share this week's episode with you! We're talking about postpartum expectation versus reality. Let's be real, as you get closer to having a baby, you have this expectation of what it will be like in the moments after birth and in the following months. But once you get there, you realize that what you expected may not be your reality. We'll cover three topics in particular that we find worth highlighting. Join us today as we talk about postpartum expectation versus reality!  ---- CONNECT WITH US: Instagram: @soyouhadababypodcast  Website: www.soyouhadababypod.com.  If you want to hear more and be a part of this community, subscribe to our podcast!
