In this episode, Dr. Elana interviews Julie Sawaya who is the co-founder and co-CEO of Needed, one of our amazing podcast partners. Needed is a perinatal nutrition company focused on optimal nourishment before, during, and after pregnancy. Julie is also a mama to a 1-year-old girl, and she is preparing to conceive again after a recent pregnancy loss. During this interview, Julie shares her story about her recent experience with a first-trimester pregnancy loss at 11 weeks gestation, and the surprise and disappointment that can come with this. They discuss what a mama can do to nourish herself during and after pregnancy loss to recover and heal, and also to prepare to conceive again, as many loss families aim to do. We tend to blame ourselves for loss, and it can be easy to distrust our bodies. This episode will give you an action plan of what you can do to nourish yourself, your partner, and find trust in your body again!
