On this episode of Embracing Parenthood, Mom of 5 Vanessa shares her postpartum experiences with her newest little one, aged 1.5. We discuss asking for help, what postpartum supports she has in place, and how support changes over time and over different postpartum periods.

She also chats about having a large family, how they divide up family tasks and why communication with her partner is so important.

Besides being a Mom, Vanessa holds a black belt in Judo, and she was featured in Lyndsay Doyle’s Book Strong & Free.
