Episode Info: In part two of our episode with Ali Miller, RD from AliMillerRD.com we discuss considerations for cesarean births including: concerns for mom and baby, how to address these concerns with a food-as-medicine approach, vaginal inoculation, and tips for a speedy recovery! Ali shares her story of home birth turned hospital cesarean and how she took action to ensure optimal health for herself and her baby, Stella. It's a truly inspiring story! Because our conversation was jam-packed with resources to support those planning or recovering from a cesarean birth, we decided to split the episode into two parts. That way, you'll be able to take in all of this great information without feeling overwhelmed (in a good way!).
