Episode 11: Listen Here!

“It feels like my marriage is really strong now, and anything that happens to us it’s like, ‘Well, we got through [the NICU], so we can get through anything else.’ But it has also made our fights a lot more intense because we really love our kids, and we’re fighting about something that really matters, where as before when we were newlyweds we were fighting about who put the toilet paper on backwards.”

In this episode, Elizabeth tells us about how her plans for an unmedicated birth were derailed when she developed high blood pressure and eventually HELLP syndrome, and how this impacted her fourth trimester and beyond. She shares about the stress that PPD put on her marriage, and the silver lining that came out of it.
