Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast!
Since working so much with new moms, and going through motherhood myself, I’ve noticed just how much women rely on their OBGYNs. They are an integral part of the pregnancy journey.
But there’s a problem in our culture when we over-rely on them for not just pregnancy, but the whole postpartum period. It’s a lot of pressure on the doctors, but it’s also not very helpful to us as patients.
While OBGYNs are great at delivering babies, that doesn’t mean they’re an expert on the human body and all of its intricacies.
Joining me to talk about this further is Tanya Tringali, the owner and founder of Mother Wit Maternity. She is a Certified Nurse-Midwife on a mission to provide wellness services that promote optimal pregnancy outcomes, safe and satisfying birth experiences, and ease the transition into parenthood.
In this episode, we discuss the differences in postpartum care between the current healthcare system and midwifery, what the current system provides, and the things that should be advocated for elsewhere.
We also talk about the strain of parenting on relationships, the importance of community, and hear more about Tanya’s approach to postpartum care.
Some big takeaways are:
