Overcoming Birth Anxiety with Baby Number 4
Jessey discusses the unexpected pregnancy and exciting birth of her 4th daughter after accepting and processing the trauma of her previous labor and delivery. After experiencing 3 rough pregnancies and a shoulder dystocia with her 3rd birth, the news of another pregnancy (during Covid, no less) was a bit of a shock. Thanks to a lot of diligent mind work and the support of friends and family, Jessey was able to work through her fears and anxieties to safely bring another bundle of joy into the world! In sharing her story, Jessey hopes to help cultivate a safe space for women to share their less than rosy feelings in an empowering, honest, and proactive way.
