We have our very first guest on this podcast, Jojo Hogan of Slow Postpartum!
Jojo has been involved in the care of pregnant and postpartum women for nearly 20 years of her life.
We get into deep discussion on the importance of postpartum and how much study and research lack in offering women the support that is so desperately needed during this time, what led us both to this path of supporting women on this journey, and how we now work to give this support to them in the absolute best ways possible.
I highly recommend that you go check out Jojo, if you’re pregnant, especially, you need to go take a look at the work that she’s doing in this world.
You don’t want to miss out on what I refer to as the Slow Postpartum Movement where the work that she is doing is changing lives!
