The Grind & Be Grateful Podcast with Marie Wold
Episode 056: What Nobody Tells You About Pregnancy, Birth + Being on The Bachelor with Liz Sandoz
Today we have an INCREDIBLE guest and a super interesting conversation, PLUS you also get to see a side of me that you maybe haven’t before… and that’s me being utterly TERRIFIED of something… and that thing is pregnancy and motherhood. I know that SO many women feel like being a mom is very much a calling of theirs and comes naturally to them, but I also know that there are a LOT of women out there who are a FULL BODY NO, or maybe, are like me and think “maybe someday”, but definitely not right now. Regardless of what category you fall into, you’re going to get SO much out of this episode, because we have Liz Presta with us today and she is a birth doula who specializes in helping women feel prepared and empowered in pregnancy and in birth itself. As women, I think that this stuff is SO important to talk about because whether you decide you want to have 7 kids or 0, you can make an INFORMED and empowered decision, right? We ALSO talked about societal pressures we feel as women, our personal struggles with body image and self-worth, and I truly think that every woman who listens to this episode will find our discussion relatable and healing in some way.
A little bit more about our guest: you may remember her as Liz Sandoz from Season 21 of the Bachelor, but now she is newly married and making a difference in women’s lives all over the world as a birth doula, life coach, and podcast host! She has SO many incredible life experiences to share with us including overcoming an eating disorder, traveling the world solo, becoming a life coach, being on the Bachelor, and so much more! So whether pregnancy is in your plans for the future or not, this episode will give you some amazing new perspectives and insights into womanhood.
