It's an honor to share time with Kendra in this week's podcast. I was intrigued by Kendra's courage and openness to tell her story to inspire new parents and help them feel connected in community. I believe her side of the birth story is seldom told. There is usually an abundance of celebration and welcoming of new mothers who experience birth as joyful. In fact, women and men are told from the outset that pregnancy and birth are causes for celebration especially if it was difficult to conceive. When any other narrative - such as Kendra's - tries to enter mainstream conversation, it is misunderstood, judged, and painful for others to hear.
