Episode 90: The Goddess Myth with Emory Hall
Emory Hall shares her experience of pregnancy and describes the birth of her baby boy, Kailash. She laments the lack of honest conversations about the reality of pregnancy and reveals how unprepared she felt for the discomfort, nausea, and exhaustion she suffered from throughout all three trimesters. As a new mom, she challenges the pressure that society puts on women to bloom throughout their pregnancies and deliver their babies drug-free and explains why she chose to protect the sanctity of her pregnancy by deciding not to post about it on social media.
After a difficult pregnancy, a traumatic birth, and an anxious time when her baby was in the NICU unit, Emory is embracing motherhood and making a conscious effort to avoid the sometimes toxic culture of comparison and judgment surrounding pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding. She expresses her shock at the lack of support and education for pregnant and post-partum mothers and hopes her experiences can provide some insight and perspective for listeners. Above all, she’s grateful for the practical help and emotional support from her doula and for the real-life stories of other mothers who don’t attempt to airbrush over the messy, imperfect reality of pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting.
