The Dance of Grief and Joy When the Unexpected Happens in Postpartum with Lindsey Shipley, RN, IBCLC

In this episode I share my conversation with Lindsey Shipley, RN, IBCLC-certified lactation coach and founder of Lactation Link. In this episode Lindsey shares her story of grief and loss that she experienced after having a baby and being diagnosed with cancer. Together we explore how Lindsey found joy even amidst the grief and pain. I put together a supportive worksheet with prompts to help in identifying the high and low emotions you may experience in postpartum, which you can find here!
