Trigger Warning: In this episode we talk about a newborn with breathing problems. Some of the specifics of this story may be triggering to some listeners.
In this episode I talk to Krista about her postpartum journey with her second baby, Logan, who as a newborn had numerous unexplained episodes in which he briefly stopped breathing. Krista walks us through the experience of being post c-section, with a toddler at home, during COVID while also trying to get answers for her newborn.
Understandably, Krista ended up developing an anxiety disorder after carrying all of this trauma and stress. Anxiety disorders are much more common in pregnant and postpartum people who have experienced medical complications and this episode we discuss why and how to get help.
