Episode 378

Julia Jones

In this episode, I interview Julia Jones of Newborn Mothers, who has been training postpartum professionals for over 10 years. In her calm manner, Julia takes us through the intricacies of the fourth trimester and shares inspiring insights into the new mother’s brain and the fluctuation of hormones. She also explains intuition and emphasises that we don’t automatically know how to mother; it is something we learn every day from birth.
